At the full-service La Pelle Skin Spa & Boutique, complexion experts wield high-end products from brands such as Physiodermie and Duchess Marden, which they apply during massages, body treatments, and facials. The staff works with a constantly friendly demeanor, whether performing whole-body exfoliation treatments or full-body waxing. Facials that last 45?90 minutes, another of the spa?s specialties, cleanse, moisturize, and protect the fa?ade, unlike doing the worm all the way across a corn field. Massage therapists practice a number of modalities to reduce bodily tension and promote detoxification.
The hardworking students of style at Le Melange prepare for outstanding future careers with expert instruction and artfully executed spa services. With a brief, 15-minute bikini wax, guests prepare to show off swimsuits or strategically placed censor bars with below-the-belt swaths of long-lasting silky skin. Alternatively, technicians polish up finger shields with the customer's choice of luxurious hot-oil treatments or classically glamorous French manicures, followed by a relaxing, multistep spa pedicure. Each pedi pampering treats tarsals to an aromatic salt rub, hydrating mask, and hot-towel wrap, ensuring that long-suffering feet re-up their lease to ankles.
Like fingerprints, snowflakes, and boy bands, no two skins are exactly alike. That?s why Sumbody & Sumtime Spa's staff custom-blends products using natural ingredients that hail from the very planet we roam upon. Founded by Deborah Burnes, who authored Look Great, Live Green, the spa's signature line of products soothes the hair, body, and nose with natural and locally sourced ingredients. And when Burnes says "natural" she means it. "People tell us every day that they've tried everything on Earth," says Burnes, who quickly turns the question around: "Have you tried the earth itself?" Using elements such as clay, charcoal, sea salt, and honey, she concocts all-natural formulas that she says bring out the best in her clients' skin.
Earth tones and wood accents play their part in creating a calming atmosphere at M.Y. Life Holistic Salon Spa, founded by registered nurse Kyle O'Hara. The salon and spa's experts spruce up manes and use holistic skin treatments to combat the signs of aging. With MTV and BBC styling and makeup credits to her name, award-winning master colorist Mia Burk spoils strands with high-end, organic and vegan-friendly products made from distilled good karma. O'Hara curates a collection that includes serums especially chosen to accommodate a wide variety of skin tones. The products purveyed by the salon spa revolve around a three-prong philosophy of detoxification, rebuilding, and results maintenance.
If a jack of all trades is a master of none, then the aestheticians at Eyebrow Hub can safely call themselves masters of the art of eyebrow threading. They rid hirsute foreheads of unwanted stragglers, leaving behind gorgeously arched brows, but none of the redness, swelling, or amorous bees left by waxing. Despite the name, the threadsters also apply their hair-removal services to other areas, including upper lips, chins, and legs. Guests with a mind to supplement their threading, can go in for henna tattoos, eyelash extensions, and microdermabrasion.
