Legacy’s Hair Design’s indulgent 90-minute mani-pedi treatments leave appendages nourished and sparkling. To begin, a professional manicurist cleanses and softens hands in a bath of water and lotion, allowing nail beds to shed grime and stuck-on thimbles. Talons and cuticles then undergo clipping in preparation for a coat of polish. During the pedicure, tootsies slip into a gurgling hot tub that softens rough skin and calluses. When coarse patches soften into delicious prunes, a nail tech exfoliates the skin and gently trims nails. A swipe of polish finishes the job, leaving feet ready to confidently explore the world of open-toe shoes and fire-walking. Throughout the appointment, clients can nibble on donuts and cookies or dry freshly painted nails in front of the salon’s cozy wood stove.
In 90-minute sessions, Anchorage Rolfing owner and certified practitioner Brett Thomson Linder reaches deep tissue in a mending massage that seeks to balance and realign the body. This hands-on, holistic approach works through the corpus’s web of connective tissue to straighten sagging postures and reposition misaligned anatomy. Especially useful for rehabilitating injuries incurred while racing to beat neighborhood children to the ice-cream truck, rolfing may also help soothe pain from athletic or strenuous lifestyles. During each session, the practitioner frequently seeks client feedback on sensations and diagnoses movement restrictions. Clients should wear comfortable clothing in preparation for the intense bodywork, which, unlike traditional massage, aims to make lasting, structural changes to the body.
The Cake Pop Goddess's lollygaggers cook up trays of their spherical sweets in a variety of flavors before coating them in smooth chocolate and vanilla shells. Customers design their dozens by choosing from four fluffy cupcake flavors: chocolate, cookies 'n' cream, Funfetti, and red velvet, the latter named for its rich texture and ability to be hung on walls. A creamy shell of chocolate or vanilla protects each delicate center, with the base colored to the client's wishes, then topped with color-coordinating sprinkles. The bakers then wrap each pop in cellophane and festive bows before setting them in a bag for safe transport, out of the elements and away from open-mouthed children lying in wait on the sidewalk.
