Tom Zimmermann, the cosmetologist behind Tommy Z's Salon and Spa, has been in the beauty business since 1978 and running his own shops since 1984. Those decades of experience helped him assemble his current crack team of stylists, skincare specialists, and massage therapists. In the salon, they revamp looks with cuts, colors, and straightening sessions for men’s and women’s hair and work with brides-to-be to create personalized looks and rice-catching updos for weddings. In the spa, the crew pampers complexions with facials and peels and kneads stress out of muscles with expertly executed massages.
At the intimate Mabista Salon & Spa, Gloria Doyle captains a staff of nail technicians, skincare specialists, and massage therapists. The licensed professionals float around the intimate space, leading customers to cushy black chairs for Shellac manicures or ushering them into private treatment rooms for waxing services and warm bamboo massages. They administer a sweeping array of specialty facials, smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating skin with refining masks, exfoliating sea salts, and advanced Phytomer skincare products.
Express Body Curves Wellness aims to live up to its name by helping clients look three inches slimmer over the course of 30 days. To do this, they rely on specialized body wraps and waist-cinching garments, often complemented with fat-burning supplements or topical gel. According to Express experts, regularly wearing a latex or steel-boned corset can help "train" one's waist to be more slender, especially when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Body wraps, meanwhile, work to detoxify as they slim, as well as help clients sneak into giant-burrito conventions undetected.
When it comes to beauty, the team at The Mane Attraction does it all, from haircuts and color to airbrush makeup and mani-pedis. Formal styles and updos ensure ladies look just right for their wedding, prom, or first day at a new job. The award-winning salon also applies hair extensions to help clients attain longer and fuller locks. The Mane Attraction also features a boutique with a variety of women's fashions.
Imagine someone approaches with a smoothie made of organic peaches, blueberries, or mangoes, but instead of offering you a taste they gently spread its contents across your forehead and massage the sweet aromas into your skin. This surreal daydream happens daily at Pure Elegance Spa, where aestheticians devoted to organic skincare nourish complexions with their six signature fruit-smoothie facials and other treatments designed to nurse skin to optimal health. Oxygen therapy revives dull skin in tandem with parsley and cucumber, and microdermabrasion promotes cellular turnover deep within the dermis using an exfoliant of pears and poppy seeds. Beyond edible ingredients, many services also blend in products by Éminence Organic Skin Care—a Hungarian line that heals signs of aging and ushers toxins from the face and body without relying on chemicals or additives.
Those who prefer to save their appetite for later can skip the chocolate and margarita manicures in favor of airbrush makeup or waxing services that clear away fuzz on the face and body. Ocular enhancements include Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions that add natural-looking drama, as well as an eye rescue treatment that aims to save peepers from puffiness, crow's feet, and madcap pokes from nearby Stooges.
Seasons Salon and Day Spa's pampering staff indulge clients with a m?lange of services that relax and tone bodies amid candlelight and muted earth tones. From salon treatments that sculpt and maintain chic coiffures to mani-pedis that primp nails and soften skin, a grab bag of beautification prepares clients for nights on the town and days spent standing still in a wax museum. Extravagant spa packages, such as the Little Black Dress, draw from a menu of massages and skin treatments to smooth away cellulite, burn calories, and revivify sagging visages with collagen treatments.
Experienced instructors also kick weight loss into high gear with fitness classes?ranging from yoga to Zumba?held within an expansive hardwood studio. Private tanning rooms sport draped ceilings and ambient lighting, gilding bodies in an atmosphere that's more relaxing than a cruise ship filled with down pillows.
