Sue, the owner of Sunrise Hair Studio, brings 18 years of experience as an aesthetician to the treatment table. Along with a team of stylists and aestheticians, Sue delivers image-transforming services for every inch of skin and hair. In the salon, stylists whip up custom cuts and colors and employ the follicle-smoothing powers of Global Keratin?s formaldehyde-free hair-straightening treatment. Aestheticians use skin-friendly sugar and traditional waxes and nail techs pamper hands during chair-side manicures. Relaxing clients indulge in the beauty haven's charming garden area, a tranquil retreat where guests can enjoy refreshments while catching up on the latest celebrity gossip with the area's resident gnomes and traveling pack of pink flamingos.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
Dr. Ahmad Ellini, MD, received aesthetic training under the esteemed Dr. Zein E. Obagi and Dr. Patrick Bitter Jr., the founding fathers of the Obagi Skin Health Institute and the photofacial, respectively. Relying on his expertise, Dr. Ellini and his team carefully examine each patient’s pores so that they can recommend the most suitable facial, peel, laser treatment, or dose of injectables. The aestheticians on staff are well-versed in exfoliation and hair-removal techniques, as well as mineral-makeup application.
When hands and feet are treated at Present Nail Spa, they aren?t just buffed and polished. They?re soaked in red wine or smothered in a watermelon, baobab, and banana mask as clients breathe in exotic or fruity scents. Of course staffers also shape and polish nails, but that's just the beginning. They also treat clients to pomegranate sea-salt scrubs to fight aging, milk and honey to soften and moisturize skin, and green- and white-tea masks to make a gingerbread man?s hands taste better. Other body parts grab the spotlight during the nail spa?s face- and body-waxing services and applications of eyelash extensions.
The staffers at Lotus Nails Spa take mani-pedis to the next level. Of course, they offer classic mani-pedis, but they get creative with variations including mango, chocolate, and tangerine versions. During 50-minute organic spa pedicures, for example, they lavish feet with essential oils and herbal extracts blended with Moroccan argan oil. And they can further up the pampering with nail designs, paraffin dips, and long-lasting gel polish, which remains chip-free for up to two weeks?the average time it takes to claw your way out of a jail cell. Beyond tending to nails, the staff also offers massages and waxing.
Nails, hair, skin, and tense muscles all receive their due care at Aislinn Spa, where visitors are greeted with the sounds of gentle music and an aura of well-lit cleanliness. Along with the basic trim, buff, and polish of a manicure or pedicure, the spa also offers more indulgent treatments that pamper the skin with everything from lemongrass to milk and honey. Stylists create flattering hairdos, massage therapists relieve tension with treatments for the hands, feet, or neck and shoulders, and skincare specialists remove hair using honey- and chocolate-based waxes. Pairing rejuvenation with relaxation, Aislinn Spa's aestheticians cover faces in soothing masks designed to leave the skin as radiant as a disco ball held up to the sun.
