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.
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.
True to its location on the second and third floors of Firehouse Place, All Seasons Salon and Day Spa elevates minds and bodies with nature-inspired spa treatments. Goldwell and Aveda products line the shelves in a reception area whose floral décor vies for attention with the purses, clothes, shoes, and handcrafted Elle Cosmetics peeking out from the designer boutique area next door. Back in the pedicure nook, toes take baths in basins of warm water before shedding their calluses and ferrying their owners to one of the nearby manicure stations, where technicians brush fingernails with vibrant OPI polishes. Soft candle lights flicker against the walls of private aesthetic and massage rooms, while out on the salon floor stylists revivify hair with custom European coloring techniques. During the wedding season, the spa’s team tends to more than 75 bridal parties, painting nails, styling strands, and dipping drab white dresses in their vibrant hair dyes.
At Jae D's Salon and Spa—a stress-free oasis tucked within the Crestwood Medical Office Building—owner Jae Dunn and her team marry their beauty expertise with a warm sense of humor. This winning combination, along with their full menu of services, has helped them to foster long-lasting relationships with their clients. Myriad hair services, including cuts, highlights, and all-over color, are among the salon's specialties. As men and women settle into salon chairs amid calming hues of lilac, stylists trim hair and tame unruly curls and frizz with formaldehyde-free Brazilian Blowout Zero Plus treatments.
