Kids are treated like royalty at Tantrums Spa Parties, so it makes sense that they should also dress the part. While spa party guests receive a robe, slippers, and headband along with their spa itineraries, they also have the option to adorn themselves in princess attire pulled from Tantrum's costume-filled trunks.?Once they've donned their very best party attire, kids get busy relaxing or playing games with experiences custom picked to suit their likes or dislikes. Custom parties might include manicures, hairstyling, airbrush tattoos, ice cream and candy stations, a cupcake bar, or even karaoke. And, in addition to catering to younger guests, Tantrums is also available for sweet 16 parties where guests can indulge in age-appropriate spa services and pose in a photo booth.

Trained massage therapist Deborah Carter uses her more than 25 years of experience to customize massages for each client using an array of modalities. She aims to help heal and relax the client using everything from traditional Swedish strokes to the firmer kneads of a Russian sports massage. Carter is also trained in the Vodder Method of manual lymph drainage, which she relies on to detoxify the body of impurities and excess water being stored in buckets on the knees. Carter performs these relaxing sessions at Townsend and Company Salon and Spa, where wood-covered ceilings and exposed-brick walls give the modern salon an organic feel, and the dimly lit treatment rooms create a cocoon of comfort for clients to recharge or molt away their caterpillar shell.

At New Attitudes Salon, talented stylists and aestheticians pamper clients with a spectrum of hair, skin, and body treatments. To keep hairdos in line and up to date, a CHI master educator can glide her scissors through locks or apply a flattering, ammonia-free color. Facials employ potent ingredients such as volcanic ash and glycolic acid to tighten pores and even out tone, and body scrubs refresh below-chin skin with mixtures of sea salt and organic essential oils. Treatment rooms fill with therapeutic scents of vanilla, lavender, and peppermint during spa appointments, ensuring clients leave with minds as calm as the audience at a snail race.

Among tranquil taupe walls and the subtle lighting of vintage lamps, Sixsixty Salon forges redefining 'dos, transforming tints, and tasteful trimmings in a cozy, single-stylist space. Veteran coif guru Denise Santiago can highlight hair to renew a stalwart style or to help blend in with a favorite throw pillow, or she can perform a one- or two-process coloring for a full head of ravishing hues. Insubordinate strands are chastised and skillfully chopped with a men or women's face-framing cut. With the purchase of any option, buyers also receive half off on a children's haircut (a $10 value for $5), making any choice ideal for a family outing, a mother-daughter morning, or a deftly disguised possum grooming.

Katerina Mathias aims to show each client their true potential. She uses chemical peels, diamond microdermabrasion, and other skin care therapies to bring out the best in each person's skin. She also uses professional skin care products, as well as organic, custom-made masks and oils. Clients leave her spa with glowing complexion, nourished skin, and clear pores. But what qualifies Katerina as a skincare expert? The answer is twofold, spanning both formal and personal experience. First, she earned a bachelor's degree in organic chemistry, receiving institutional confirmation of her enzymatic and molecular know-how. Next, after moving from Russia to the United States, Katerina became a mother. And although it was the textbooks that imparted stats about cells and atoms, it was her long hours as a new mom that drove home the need for quality self-care. "As a woman and a mother, I know it is not easy to break free and love yourself," she explains, "but once it happens, it starts a chain reaction that improves all aspects of life."
