Richard Kroll has been training top-notch stylists for more than 45 years, serving as a national style director for Wella while primping and pampering clients at his Total Image Salon & Day Spa. Coiffure artistes tailor looks to suit each visitor's facial features, hair texture, and home architecture with a variety of salon services. Haircuts include a wash, condition, and personalized-styling session and Wella colors are customized to compliment skin tones ($32 for men, $50 for women). Faces glow and eyes pop when hairs flaunt highlights ($90+ for full head) or lowlights ($65+) instead of monster-spooking nightlights. The salon also offers a number of hair replacement services for those with thinning manes, including complimentary consultations and specialty wigs for guests receiving chemotherapy ($700+).
At Devyne Insparation Day Spa, skilled massage therapists unbundle knots and quell stress with relaxing massages and invigorating spa treatments. Therapists stretch and knead the entire body with soothing Swedish or deep-tissue strokes enhanced by hot towels and nose-tickling aromatherapy, or they call upon fragrant coconut oil and the fluid movements of a traditional Hawaiian massage to alleviate aching muscles. A custom body scrub sloughs away dry skin, and the spa’s Wrap Me Up body wrap envelops clients in seaweed and French green clay mud designed to boost blood flow and ultimately soften skin. Devyne Inspiration also bundles treatments into indulgent spa packages suited for individuals or couples, such as husbands and wives, mothers and daughters, or lumberjacks and oxen.
Trendz Salon congregates the talents of hairstylists, nail technicians, and massage therapists, each of whom shares the goal of making clients looks and feel their best. Every member of the team draws from years of experience in their field, but perhaps the salon's greatest asset is their upbeat customer service. Before performing any of their signature facials, luxurious foot-massage pedicures, or creative hair-coloring services, the team consults with clients to learn about their lifestyle and deepest beauty desires.
Since 1994, Dean P. Agiato has calmed muscle aches with leisurely and therapeutic massages. Flowing strokes coax tense muscles to loosen as bodies unwind on a specially designed massage table in a cozy room amid flourishing plants and a large dream catcher. Swedish and relaxation massages mollify tension built up from everyday stress, and deep-tissue and therapeutic massages combat injuries from sports mishaps and misguided attempts at choreographing an all-elephant musical.
When Sharon Landis is not busy dispensing deep-tissue, Swedish, and therapeutic massages at her office, she is out delivering Massage-O-Grams. Once a customer purchases a Massage-O-Gram, she travels to the recipient, reads a telegram penned by the gifter, and administers a 25-minute chair massage, kneading the shoulders, arms, back, and wings. The licensed massage therapist keeps hours until 8 p.m. every day but Sunday to accommodate clients' busy schedules.
The stylists at Azar's Beauty Salon pamper and beautify clients with haircuts, special-occasion updos, and nail treatments. As clients gaze at themselves in the studio's curvy, leaf-shaped mirrors from the ergonomic salon chairs, the stylists work to devise a look based on their face shape, skin tone, and hair's phobia of getting long enough to touch the floor.
