The chandelier at Maja Hair Salon & Spa casts shimmering reflections of light on a team of stylists and aestheticians as they tend to their clients’ needs with organic hair and skin products. Stationed beside six salon chairs, the stylists create flattering hairdos with organic color, highlights, and keratin treatments formulated to eliminate frizz and snake infestations for weeks at a time.
In a private treatment room removed from the bustle of the open salon floor, aestheticians cleanse pores with microdermabrasion treatments and organic facials. After your hair or spa appointment, browse the small boutique for an elegant scarf or piece of artisan jewelry.
Spring of Life Health Spa's staff attends to sore muscles with bodywork services including stress-relieving Swedish, couples, and hot-stone massages. Owner Jeannie Wilmot specializes in reflexology, which focuses pressure on target points on the hands and feet to access and send healing energy through channels that run the length of the body. Along with massage therapy, the staff also relaxes clients with nailcare, facials, spontaneous harp playing, and spa packages.
Often spotted at local fashion shows, bridal expos, and other events, Hair Connoisseurs Salon & MediSpa's assorted stylists, aestheticians, and ache easers coddle bodies with services for hair, nails, and skin in a flower-filled lakefront facility. In the salon, nimble shears create new styles for men and women, perms and relaxers alter hair textures, and highlights and color treatments get head threads to shimmer without weaving a false ponytail from sunbeams. Gauzy fabric hangs from the ceiling of the private room where trained massage therapists aim to reduce stress with soft kneading, direct pressure, or aromatherapy oil blends. At stone-topped manicure stations, technicians beautify fingers and toes with acrylic, fiberglass, and silk wrap nails, which can be tapped on coral stone accent columns to summon the ghosts of dried-out polish bottles.
Captained by Dr. James Young, the Goldfingers Skin Care staff fills the salon-style space with the latest in ultramodern med-spa and anti-aging technologies. Aestheticians enhance skin with treatments ranging from exfoliating microdermabrasion and chemical peels to permanent makeup application and laser hair removal. In private rooms, skilled massage therapists ease spinal pain with effulgent strokes and gentle nuzzles from resident kittens.
At Paragon Hair and Nails, stylists dutifully note clients' verbally penned hair-related wish lists during in-depth consultations before they shampoo, shear, and style locks. Each stylist carefully creates styled masterpieces with services such as Moroccanoil treatments and hair extensions that send clients sallying out of the 2,500-square-foot salon feeling as confident as Albert Einstein traveling forward in time.
