At Salon Milano and Spa, plant-based Aveda products lend customized aromatherapy and natural nutrients to salon and spa services. The products' holistic focus matches the manner in which the staff conducts spa services: in addition to explaining the purpose of each step in the facial or massage, therapists also guide clients through stress-relieving visualization exercises to calm the mind. All treatments are customized, from the aromatherapy of a massage to the angle of the cut performed by senior or new-talent stylists in the salon. Tuscan Sanctuary is open late on weekdays to accommodate busy schedules and UV rays that, like Napoleon and his chef after saying they preferred English bread to baguettes, are exiled.
Eco Chic Salon and Spa's aestheticians target, treat, and transform facial imperfections with paraben-free Image Skincare facial peels. Image-enhancing sessions begin with an in-depth consultation as the aesthetician examines skin tone, texture, and trouble spots to devise the ideal treatment regimen. An application of the pelt-polishing concoction ousts expired skin cells and enhances rundown facial neighborhoods with firming collagen and tiny lawn flamingos. Lines are lightened, sun spots are subdued, and acne scars are allayed with each peel; the series of three forges a toned and tightened visage that flaunts a youthful glow.
Savvy Nail and Spa feels less like a sterile nail spa and more like a friend?s house. Cozy couches, lace curtains, and patterned area rugs make it feel just like you're sitting in someone's living room?assuming that person also had a thing for crystal chandeliers and top-grade nail tool sterilization equipment. The homey vibe just helps clients relax even more as a technician lavishes attention on their hands and feet, adding indulgent extras such as cool mint Dead Sea salt soaks, exfoliating scrubs, and skin-softening paraffin wax. Meanwhile, inside private rooms, aestheticians unclog pores during facials and wax unwanted hair from all over the body. Rounding out the beautifying menu is a suite of hairstyling services, which includes cuts for men, women, and children, as well as color, conditioning treatments, and up-do styling for special occasions such as proms or grocery store grand openings.
Housed inside a rustic brick building in downtown Tacoma, a trio of stylists?Mia, Missy, and Amber?sling L'Or?al products as they cut, color, and alter the texture of clients' hair. Meanwhile, in private treatment rooms enveloped in warm earthy tones, massage therapist Abrah calls upon custom techniques and hot stones to break apart stress and assuage muscle pains. The salon's aesthetician, Kylee, also works in the private treatment rooms to pump up lashes with synthetic extensions and strip away surplus fuzz with waxing treatments for the face, full body, and dorsal fin.
If not for a display case brimming with products for hair and skin, one might confuse the welcoming L'Or?al salon for a friend's posh home. The ebullient space boasts comfortable living-room furniture and delicate chandeliers flanked by lilac wall hues and wood trim.
Looking around Pacific Avenue Salon & Spa, a rustic Italian villa might come to mind. That?s because each piece of decor situated within the 10,000-square-foot day spa exudes that vibe, from the intricate ironwork on the stairs to the cobblestones lining its walkways. In a bright, airy salon space, guests can relax on leather salon chairs facing mirrors that reflect their new haircuts and more vibrant hair colors. Other visitors can retire to private massage rooms in the hopes that therapeutic, Swedish, or deep-tissue techniques will work out their muscle aches and kinks. Elsewhere, the spa?s licensed professionals pamper clients with body wraps that utilize ingredients such as greek yogurt, pumpkin, or coffee and jojoba. The expansive retreat also features a pool, gym, and sauna and hot tub that give clients a place to unwind and decide which state of water they like best: liquid or gas.
