Pampered Nail and Body Spa's new ownership and eco-friendly approach to beauty are marked by their use of all-natural and organic products. Your toxin-free, 70-minute mani-pedi will begin with a eucalyptus essential-oil soak, as well as a lime-coconut sugar scrub to renew your skin's moisture and attract plates of tilapia. Next, your hands will nestle into warm, heated mittens while a mint foot masque and hot-towel wrap tingles tired tootsies. A lime whipped-shea-butter massage will relax tight muscles, setting the stage for the phalange pièce de résistance: polish application in the color of your choice. This peaceful urban sanctuary urges reservations to ensure that the spa's trained doves have time to reorganize all of the nail polish by hue.
Amid the cozy decor of Salon Deon, expert stylist Kristal Perry can engineer bold highlights, condition the scalp, or sew in an elegant weave to flatter a client's features. Though she specializes in ethnic hair, Kristal styles coifs of every length and texture. Once their hair has been styled, clients can dip their toes into the salon's other beautification services, such as lash extensions that give eyes a more voluminous look without the mess of mascara.
A former nightclub, Club Kiss Salon & Spa still works hard to entertain its guests: they can drink virgin daiquiris, smoke hookahs, and watch live shows as well as getting beauty services. At the sleek, black bar with a white chandelier overhead, guests sip on virgin cocktails as staffers tend to nails. Exposed brick walls are now flanked with a row of white-framed mirrors for guests to admire new hairstyles thanks to cuts, weaves, and other styles. The salon also sells imported virgin hair—high-quality strands that keep the cuticle intact—for use in hair extensions and weaves.
Seena Owen donned the first false lashes for her 1916 film, Intolerance. The years that followed saw new lash-lengthening techniques used by celebrities and regular folks alike. Today, the techs at Eye Magic International craft glamorous lashes for everyday use that range from old-fashioned strips to semi-permanent strands applied one-by-one, which embolden lashes while maintaining a natural look. Eye Magic International's technicians also shape brows and keep skin fresh and clear with facials.
Once inside this sleek and modern spa, clients can change out of pedestrian clothing, meander into the dedicated relaxation room, and sip soothing bubbly before treatments commence. The Indonesian ginger body ritual develops over the course of 80 minutes, proving superiority over digital photography and launching with an algae exfoliation treatment. A full-body massage calms the corpus, which then gets covered in Frankincense cream and wrapped up to enhance hydration. During subsequent reflexology treatments, which adhere to ancient healing techniques, massage therapists apply pressure to specific targets on the feet with the aim of alleviating bodily complaints and causing celebratory balloons to drop.
