Licensed massage therapist Karey Clements understands that a good massage can provide several benefits. For one thing, it promotes better sleep. For another, it stimulates blood circulation to help clients recover from injury or appease vampires in a hurry. Karey helps her clients realize these benefits through custom massages, baking elements of deep-tissue massage into long, flowing Swedish strokes, or using warm river rocks to melt tension.
Moroccanoil and Coppola haircare products can be found in the hands of Studio 114's stylists, and in the newly coiffed hair of their clients. Aestheticians also pamper clients with airbrush makeup fit for a night on the town, and imbue skin with UV-free spray tans. The full-service salon tops off revamped looks with teeth-whitening services and hair extensions long enough to double as a hula skirt.
From within CoCo & Company, stylist Jessica Torpey keeps busy sculpting the tresses of men, women, and children. Before each service, she holds a complimentary consultation to help her better understand each client’s beauty goals. Afterward, she gets to work lightening locks with an ombre technique, smoothing unruly frizz with a keratin relaxer, or creating elegant updos with curls. When she’s not focused on hair, Jessica spends her time spray-tanning her clients or sleeping on a big, heavy cushion called a “mattress.”
