Nestled in a wood-shingled house, Lather A Salon provides a relaxing atmosphere for its salon, massage, and nail-care services. The staff sculpts trendy new hairdos, styling them with Aquage products and adding vibrancy with Joico color. Meanwhile, technicians gussy up nails with polish from top-notch brands such as OPI and Essie.
The "C" in Studio C Spa could stand for any number of qualities: clean, comfortable, chic, cutting-edge. But the most apt descriptor might be "custom." Aided by products from Redken and Bioelements, the studio's stylists are known for crafting haircuts that enhance their clients' natural features. Other members of the spa team perform services that range from relaxing massages to facials that address fine lines, wrinkles, and barcodes that won't peel off. The overarching theme is one of complete personalization; no service is performed without an analysis of the client's specific needs.
Tasking themselves with the ambitious goal of "redefining beauty and style", the artists at Dani La'Rose Salon leave no aesthetic stone unturned. Under the hundreds of crystals that comprise the day spa's fairy-tale chandelier, visitors lounging in sumptuous black leather seats consider their options. Will today be the day for a pedicure, complete with a plush, massaging chair? Or will they opt for an hour-long, full-body massage? How about a haircut, or a facial peel? The options are exhaustive, but with a little guidance from a stylist or aesthetician, guests can land on beautification suited to special events or everyday looks.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
