It takes a lot of self-restraint to opt for a basic pedicure at Modern Nail Studio. The more luxurious pedicures' names, like "Moroccan Mud" and "Elements of the Sea," evoke tropical climates and beach vacations?and with good reason. During the former treatment, nail technicians pamper feet with a desert mud mask and sandalwood scents, while the latter delivers sand exfoliation and a marine mask. Clients can pair the pedicures with manicures that might include citrus salts or gel polish, a durable alternative to regular polish or washable marker.
A registered school of the Yoga Alliance, Yoga Rasa takes its name from the Indian word rasa, a term whose meaning encompasses both the experiential "taste or essence of any impression" and the spiritual "nectar of life." With this at the heart of their practice, the teachers of Yoga Rasa strive to nurture clients three dimensionally through services that heal the body, mind, and soul. To do so, they oversee a facility that spans three fitness studios, a massage and spa space, a chiropractor's office, a salon, and a boutique. Each of these spaces aids guests in their exploration of yoga as well as ayurvedic healing, creating a community that encourages lifelong yogic practices.
Now under new management, Edge Salon & Spa's stylists understand their clients' beauty needs and tend to them with exceptional hair services and spa treatments. As clients enter Edge's chic space?complete with modern white furniture, lime-green accent walls, and pearl-and-crystal-draped chandeliers?a team of seasoned beauticians greet them with a complimentary glass of wine from the onsite wine bar. Aestheticians then get to work exfoliating and moisturizing complexions with custom facials as patrons relax in cube-like leather chairs. Massage therapists use hot-stone and aromatherapy techniques to soothe aches and knots in private treatment rooms. On the salon floor, the stylists showcase their hair knowledge?which helped earn them a spot on CBS DC's list of Best Places for Men's Haircuts?as they cut, color, and style locks with Goldwell, Moroccanoil, and Paul Mitchell haircare products.
The certified professionals at Alight Spa believe that spa treatments should rejuvenate guests by nourishing their mind and spirit, in addition to their body. The staff soothes all three by relieving stress, diminishing headaches, and boosting circulation with massage styles, such as Swedish, deep tissue, and scalp. The spa's steam-sauna sessions detoxify bodies and hydrate skin, and body wraps slim and soften clients with mixtures of herbs and minerals. Skin undergoes more reinvigoration with facials and chemical peels, during which cleansings, massages, and moisturizers clear up acne, even out pigmentation, and reduce wrinkles. The staff administers each procedure with a stock of professional products from brand-name manufacturers, such as Dermalogica, whose wares are also available for purchase.
