As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Accentrix's Salon and Spa integrates Paul Mitchell products into nearly every treatment. Stylists enrich manes with award-winning shampoos in the washhouse, and infuse hair with botanical styling aids at haircut stations. After a haircut or dye job, clients can take a seat at the toolbar—a workbench outfitted with salon-grade flat irons, round brushes, and monkey wrenches—and learn to reproduce their hairstyle at home. In addition to salon services, Accentrix offers spa services that enhance nails, bodies, and complexions while relaxing the mind.
Kellie, the tanning artist behind Glo To Go Customized Sunless Tanning, burnishes skin tones with high-quality airbrush tans customized to each individual's skin. Particles of DHA deepen the skin's hue to a golden brown without streaking or leaving behind orange splotches that falsely indicate a Cheetos addiction. Kellie recommends gently exfoliating skin before appointments and avoiding moisturizers, perfumes, and oils on the day of the session.
After receiving a massage at Sunrise Massage Therapy Services, it’s hard not to feel that the sun has indeed risen on a new day. That’s because the studio’s certified therapists—whose skills extend from traditional Swedish massage to specialty prenatal and geriatric styles—are never satisfied until they have relieved chronic pains and lingering tensions. During manual lymph-drainage sessions, for example, their gentle manipulations help drain excess fluid from the body and bolster the immune system’s capacity to fend off illnesses and slaps from school bullies. The studio also operates an online store where clients can buy lotions, pillows, and massage equipment to stop tension at their homes’ doorsteps.
Christina Freeman and her resident aesthetician have more than 30 years of collective experience in the art of making skin glow. In their pursuit of youthful radiance, the skin specialists tailor spa treatments to each client’s skin type. The organic passionfruit peel offers a lighter rejuvenation, and chemical peels and Dermaglow microdermabrasion treatments delve deeper to combat blemishes and signs of aging such as wrinkles or comb-over noses.
Spa-goers can relax during full-body massages and enjoy the aromatherapy of nine essential oils during raindrop-therapy sessions designed to boost immune systems and soothe stress. Rounding out their services, Christina and her team can enhance features with Jane Iredale mineral makeup and wax away mustaches or eyebrows that need braiding each morning.
Helmed by Kitty Caughey, a manicurist with more than 13 years of experience in her hand-pampering wake, Nail Therapy Spa revamps digits with an array of strengthening and beautifying services. The fleet of skilled techs descends on fingers and toes with a flurry of buffing, cleansing, and trimming during the classic manicure, and transforms palms into putty with the complimentary hand massage. Armed with Shellac and OPI polishes, aestheticians guard nails with a boldly colored suit of armor reminiscent of the knights of the round table after their weekly paintball match.
Nicole Lee hails from a long line of stylists. Her closest role model, her father, Rodney Zeno, spent 45 years clipping tresses in his cozy single-chair studio before she took his place. Today, Nicole draws on more than 20 years of her own experience as she snips and arranges strands for men, women, and children. While she works, guests sit in a brown barber's chair surrounded by black-and-white checkered floors and walls dotted with golf memorabilia, all vestiges of Zeno's worthy reign. In addition to cuts, highlights, and perms, Nicole also offers waxing services and keeps a nail tech on staff to ensure that her clients' hands don’t get jealous and muss their new 'dos.
