The licensed staff creates a flawless finish for all the body's surfaces and retractable appendages with keratin-crafting 60-minute spa manicures ($30), which include a moisturizing paraffin treatment before the ceremonial coat of polish, 10-minute foot soaks ($10), and 30-minute body polishes ($40). Basic haircuts for men ($15) and women ($17) sculpt structurally sound strands, and tacking on a blow-dry and style ($20) provides a shiny soliloquy for freshly shorn locks. Unearth invasive bodily species with an eyebrow ($12), upper-lip ($10), full-arm ($40), and bikini ($35) wax, or relax muscles knotted from unrelenting air-hockey matches with a 30-minute mini facial ($40) or kneady Swedish massage ($30).
Licensed cosmetologist and make-up and nail artist Doreen Matheny has a passion for making her clients look and feel their best, earning a coveted Brides' Choice award from WeddingWire in 2013. Her skill set spans a wide range of cosmetic treatments, from soothing spa mani-pedis and natural hair removal, to wedding day makeup packages and natural-looking sunless tanning.
Speaking of tanning, each of Doreen's UV-free spray tans is a work of art applied by a real-life skilled technician, not an orangey glow obtained by an automated booth or an accidental fall into a vat of molten butterscotch. As a result, customers can expect a natural, glowing bronze customized to their specific skin type and tone.
The professionally trained hair stylists at New Styles Salon & Tanning snip and tease lifeless tresses into custom coiffures. New Style's skilled stylists massage products from Paul Mitchell, Goldwell, and Aquage into messy mops, working fragrant shampoo from the follicles to the end of each strand. Refresh cranial filaments with a personalized cut, then relax as a hair sculptor perfects your new 'do by harnessing the expeditious gusts of a cheetah-powered hair-dryer.
Magnolias on the Green's Lissa Bell, a licensed esthetician whose specialties include holistic skincare, clarifies and refreshes skin with custom-concocted, all-natural products. The wooden floors, ornate mirrors, and antique-inspired furniture at Magnolias on the Green greet clients with charm and whispered affirmations of beauty. The one-hour body polish begins with a thorough cleansing and a light exfoliation, expelling dirt and other pore cloggers. An intense moisturizing session then soothes skin and flicks on the epidermis's sprinkler system. The one-hour custom facial focuses on visage revitalization, starting with a cleanse and an analysis to determine the skin's complexion, sensitivity, and most terrifying clown-related memories. Lissa Bell then tailors each facial treatment's product solution to the individual's specific needs for customized results.
The staff at About Beauty pamper clients head to toe with FDA-approved medspa treatments as well as hair and nail services. In the hands of skilled techs, lasers revive fading follicles, and whiten stained or yellow teeth. Less high-tech treatments, such as haircuts and coloring, manicures, and pedicures, come via talented stylists with vision and technique.
K-Pak products assist hair owners in achieving high-end, healthy ’dos. Chosen as one of 2010’s Top 10 Hair Products by The View's Bryant Renfroe, the ReconstrRx VaporIron straightens or curls locks while simultaneously infusing them with ReconstRx VaporFuel (3.4 oz. bottle included), a protective elixir that decreases hair breakage, reduces color loss, and minimizes curl reversion—even after a long session of balloon rubs. The VaporIron also includes a step-by-step styling brochure and instructional DVD featuring one of Joico’s head honchos, Damien Carney.
LuLu Massage’s sure-handed therapists use their healing grips to soothe achy muscles and balance bodily channels with calming spa treatments. As one-hour deep-tissue sessions begin, stress and fatigue flee in the face of personalized kneading, and circulation and range of motion receive a salubrious boost. Alternatively, a reflexology foot massage plies areas on the feet that correspond to different zones and organs, loosing endorphins in an attempt to recalibrate the brain and remedy such ailments as headaches, back pain, and presence of lovesick crawfish desperately clinging to toes. LuLu Massage's flexible daytime and evening hours permit clients to schedule personalized sessions around daytime errands or office responsibilities such as picking the berries growing around the water cooler.
