Tresses are kept trimmed, tinted, and textured with an arsenal of services at Bella Sorella Salon. Give locks weary from endless growth spurts a much-deserved break with a customized haircut ($20–$35), and tack on a blow-dry and style to ease hydrophobic shoulders ($45). All-over single process color saturates headmops with a new hue ($70), while a few face-framing highlights can bring out the color of braces’s rubber bands ($5 per foil). Conspicuous curls blend in at dry-spaghetti dance parties after a relaxer, and straight strands befriend bouncier brethren after a perm (each $75+).
The licensed medical professionals and technicians at Venus Tan and Spa iron out wrinkles and unearth fresher, younger skin with sophisticated facial treatments. Nurse-administered Botox injections flatten out facial furrows by freezing muscles and tightening up the hard-to-reach screws behind the ears. Smoothed-out results appear within three to seven days after the 10- to 15-minute procedure and can last up to four months. Beauty mavens can follow up the treatment with a half-hour diamond microdermabrasion to draw back the face’s dull curtains of dead skin, or tighten up sagging spots and recharge cheek-stored smile batteries with the gentle FDA-approved electric pulses of a 45-minute microcurrent facial.
Massage therapists Krishinda Curley and Tenecia Harrison bring years of experience to the table as they coax coiled muscles into a state of relaxation with Swedish, prenatal, sports, and deep-tissue massages. In the private treatment room, soft music plays, and additional services, such as aromatherapy or hot stones, foster deeper relaxation.
As clients step inside a massage treatment room at Body Logic Massage, soft lighting pairs with a hint of aromatherapy to set the stage for sublime relaxation. For all initial sessions, the massage therapist consults with the client to review health history and help ensure optimal results. Massages are available in durations ranging from 15 to 90 minutes, and clients can opt to undress completely, remain fully clothed, or wear an old suit of armor—whichever is most comfortable. In addition to traditional massage sessions, Body Logic Massage also offers ear-candling services and chair massages.
