Soothing music and hints of aromatherapy float through the air at Beyond Beauty Day Spa, where a duo of aestheticians and a licensed massage therapist rejuvenate both mind and body. A deep turquoise color saturates the walls, creating a calm environment similar to that of an ocean-side patio or getting trapped inside a Tiffany box.
Aestheticians Amy and Olga, who have 16 and 40 years of experience, respectively, perform nine custom facials, reviving skin with everything from rosemary and basil to gentle hyaluronic-acid serums. They can also remove unwanted hair with waxing or sugaring techniques, as well as dress up nails during spa manicures and pedicures. Meanwhile, Veronica, the massage therapist, distributes her skills across backs and shoulders by means of Swedish, deep-tissue, and neuromuscular sessions that can last between 15 and 90 minutes.
Owner Jodi Holtz personally trains all of the staff at The Waxing Studio in a patent-pending, six-step waxing technique that efficiently rids skin of unwanted hair. This crew has performed more than 200,000 depilatory treatments since the studio's founding in 2006, using a custom-made organic wax that leaves neither sticky residue nor glitter deposits behind. They wax nearly any area of men's and women's anatomy during sessions that last only about 15?30 minutes.
Beauty Store Salon & Spa accentuates patrons' features with an archive of professional haircare products, cosmetics, skincare treatments, and boutique gifts. A staff of enthusiastic product specialists guides customers through aisles of accouterments to offer recommendations from 29 haircare lines, 8 nailcare designers, and a variety of bath and body products including Pre de Provence and Burt's Bees. OPI nail lacquers ensconce finger canvases in a spectrum of colors ($8.50), and MoroccanOil hair treatments infuse head gardens with antioxidants and vitamins to hydrate, strengthen, and revive strands ($40.80). Paul Mitchell shampoos ($7.99) and conditioners ($9.99) provide individualized care for specific types of hair, and Jane Iredale pure matte pressed finish powder graces pores with mineral foundations free of oil, dye, paraben, talc, and maple syrup ($36). In addition to body-beautifying products, Beauty Store Salon & Spa carries gift items including Trapp candles ($3.75), which fill living rooms with a sweet perfume packed with couch pheromones.
Mix and match at Salon Cherie and spend a blissful afternoon transforming yourself non-lycanthropically. Cleanse deep pores and exfoliate your not-so-secret identity mask with a Bioelements facial comprised of natural and organic ingredients. Your freshified face will go well with a lock-strengthening conditioner, shampoo, and style. You can also completely reinvent your look from the shoulders up (unless your hair is beyond shoulder length or you are a giraffe) with a precision haircut before complementing it with cleanly waxed brows. Or wax your eyebrows off, shave your head, but leave brow-shaped bangs high above the eyes in preparation for an upcoming spoiled surprise party. These are just a couple of the possible permutations; there's absolutely no mathematical way to ascertain how many more there are.
