A bicycle leans against the wall in the Anthea Spa lobby, its basket filled with flowers. This touch of decor might seem out of place, but it's actually a nod to the spa's name?anthea translates to "flower" in Greek?and to its penchant for all-natural products. These products find their way into nine varieties of facials, which rely on enzymes and aromatherapy or employ European exfoliation techniques and high-frequency currents. The aestheticians also draw on herbs, healing muds, and oils to refresh skin and relax muscles during massages and body treatments.
Inside the U.S. Bank Building sits Europa by Sasha Salon & Spa, bedecked in marble fixtures and vivid paintings that glow under soothing spa lighting. Aestheticians help faces slough off dead skin cells through exfoliation and imbue cheeks with moisture and the motivation to finally finish their novels. Massage therapists knead sore tissues, and expert colorists enhance mop tops with color treatments, allowing hair tones to match a new outfit or freshly reupholstered couches. Other services include manicures, formal updos, makeup applications, and sauna sessions.
Creative Beauty Salon & Spa offers a variety of beautifying services within a tranquil, stress-busting environment. Let trained aestheticians expertly cleanse hands and feet during a mani-pedi; using their own grasping appendages, they'll shape nails, clip cuticles, and exfoliate away dry skin and calluses. Soothing limb massages shake up and release bottled tension bubbling under the skin surface, and a coat of polish seals in a newly obtained sense of calm. Nails, feet, and hands will gleam like sunlight reflected off the surface of a stately flying toaster.
Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's prettifying professionals cosset hard-working countenances within the sage and chocolate trappings of their newly opened second location. The visage invigoration begins with a pore cleansing to gently wash away accumulated dirt and ink from squid-diaper-changing mishaps. Next, a face-saving aesthetician blends a tailor-made cream concoction, designed to optimally balance and nourish skin based on skin type. The staff recommends this facial as a perfect first date with skincare for spa newbies, and Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's wrought-iron chandeliers and ballad-singing candles set a romantic atmosphere for adoring newly radiant skin.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
