Floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate deep-orange walls, all of which are dutifully reflected in the salon's faux-marble tiles. Amid these modern accents, licensed cosmetologists nix fuzz from brow fringes with specialty wax sessions and revamp strands with European cut-and-color techniques. Clients also may retreat to a private room for a relaxing tan, or request nail art in the form of butterflies, roses, or close-ups of Mona Lisa's bling teardrop tattoo.
The professional team of stylists at Escape Salon and Spa tames unruly tresses with the plant-derived Brazilian Blowout Zero. The treatment requires no formaldehyde, relying instead upon plant-based KeraSafe to introduce essential amino acids to the hair. Tress tamers gently scrub scalps with a clarifying shampoo, washing away hair-product residue, oils, and climbing princes, and then apply the formula. The protein dives deep into the cuticle, with stylists maneuvering blow-dryers and flatirons to straighten out manes. Results can last up to 12 weeks.
Custom formulating the perfect color for you based on your personal preference and skin tone. Whether you want a light and healthy touch of sun, a deeper sun-kissed glow or a dark beach tan, all can be achieved with airbrushing. Tan for your weekend out, a special occasion or just to maintain a healthy glow all year round.
Massage therapist Annie is passionate about healthy living; otherwise her skills might stop at the usual Swedish and sports massages. While she excels at these and other conventional modalities, she also practices Ayurvedic massage. Through the Ayurvedic system, she believes that massages should not only help relax muscles, but also balance the constitution of the body to help stave off future health issues.
Eva, which uses and sells environmentally friendly Aveda products, caters to hair and skin with an array of rejuvenating services. All hair services, which include a number of coloring options and a women's cut and style ($43), come with an aromatherapy scalp massage to relax the senses and drain collected cranial-stress juices. With many waxing options available, clients can touch up fingers and toes ($10) or prepare for the beach or a scantily clad spelling bee with a Brazilian ($75). The tourmaline radiance facial, a 90-minute holistic microdermabrasion session, utilizes the tourmaline mineral to smooth out fine lines and beautify complexions ($80). Eva's palette of spring colors, as well as a prismatic mosaic of earthy and bright tones, enhances the atmosphere with warmth and style.
