Understanding that outer appearance builds self-confidence and that self-confidence builds inner beauty, Tameka Nichole opened Perfections to assist in that process. As a perfectionist, she accomplishes all services with an acute attention to detail, arching brows to suit facial features and brow structures and applying lash extensions to enhance them. She also smoothes skin with waxing treatments and draws further attention to faces with artful makeup applications. To empower women with their own makeup skills, she also offers lessons.
Though it has all the standard spa treatments—facials, body wraps, massages—The Spa at Wellness Works extends its attention beyond the reach of a typical day spa. With personal-training sessions and weight-loss services, the self-improvement haven welcomes clients to a complete wellness center dedicated to improving appearances, physical health, and mental telepathy. The center also hosts a variety of fitness and education events, including boot-camp sessions, cooking classes, and wellness seminars, to teach participants skills that they can apply to their daily lives.
After years of working as a personal stylist for major brands like Banana Republic, Sharon Broxton's passion shifted from fashion to hair. So, she started at the beginning: she worked at the front end of a salon for a year, and then embarked on a two-year apprenticeship. These days, she showcases her styling expertise at Painted Strands, where she updates 'dos with meticulous trims and straightens curly hair with silk presses. Highlights, glazes, and single-process treatments lend eye-catching color to her clients' locks, and her color extensions are a far better alternative to crayons twisted into French braids.
Zen Massage's team of certified massage therapists take kinks and knots to task with a wide range of massage modalities designed to address all manner of physical and emotional distress. They offer Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massages, to name a few. Additionally, licensed estheticians customize facials to clients' needs, administering add-ons that target eyes, lips, and hands. LED light therapy is also available.
Like a gym, Meant Spa & Lounge wants to help clients slim down. But unlike a gym, which is full of clattering machines, shouting trainers, and people hiding inside lockers, Meant takes a more gentle, laid-back approach to weight loss. Physician-supervised staff administer PhotoSlim Lipo treatments, which rely on a FDA-approved noninvasive red light to shrink fat cells and combat cellulite, lie back and relax while a technician holds the red light over problem areas. Clients can even sip gourmet tea to help them unwind before each treatment. The treatments themselves are non-invasive, and no downtime is required.
When it's not slimming bodies, Meant's high-intensity red light provides nonsurgical face lifts. It boosts collagen production and tightens skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and slimmer jaw lines and necks.
All treatments last one hour and are administered by aestheticians who customize procedures to suit the particular skin type and belly button concavity of each client. During a celestial facial, clients are pampered with dual cleansing, steam therapy, gentle extraction, mask, and massage. The treatment balances skin tone, sloughs off dead cells, and purges pores of grease, grime, and misplaced roller-skates. The mineral salt scrub excavates deep beneath dermal strata to reveal smooth, glowing skin. Sink into a plush, heated bed to be slathered with mineral salt and then wiped clean with steam towels and kitten tongues. The treatment concludes with a warm shower, light massage, and rich body cream. Sea mud wraps detoxify, exfoliate, and nourish with seaweed, botanicals, and plant enzymes. Sealed in a warm, relaxing wrap of mineral clay, patients will feel like Cleopatra being fit for her custom-built sarcophagus. Those opting for a Swedish massage will be gently stroked with kneading and effleurage (gliding pressure applied by thumb pad or fingertip). Totally relax while circulation is stimulated and stress icicles melt into pristine mountain fresh water and edelweiss.
