Modern lights hang from the ceiling, casting a honey-colored glow on several intimate styling areas and causing the glass of ornate chandeliers to glimmer. Each station becomes a retreat from the world, where skilled stylists craft bold cuts and color bland strands. Clients may also request a specialty straightening treatment to fortify hair or solicit a nail technician for a new coat of color polish.
The licensed massage therapists at New Beginnings Massage Therapy soothe stressed physiques with a full menu of massage modalities. Therapists calibrate the amount of pressure to please each back, working over muscles with the techniques of standard Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone treatments or specialized prenatal, reflexology, and cranial massages. The staff also promotes healthy skin with paraffin-wax dips for the hands and feet, sugar scrubs, and seaweed body wraps for homesick mermaids.
In addition to enlivening bodies with a sense of well-being, New Beginnings Massage Therapy also inspires joy by raising support for the Down Syndrome Association.
At Something to Remember Massage and Spa, trained hands glide across backs as they zero in on areas of tension. Seamlessly moving from one knot to the next, professionals’ fingers seem to draw out the pain, stress, and soreness that often weigh a person down. While some sessions at a spa are forgettable, the best massages aren't forgotten. At Something to Remember Massage and Spa, staff members’ goal is to take away worries and replace them with memories of unadulterated relaxation. They do so with a variety of different treatments, from classic Swedish massage to more esthetic-centric services like sugar scrubs and a seaweed body wrap that tightens skin and makes customers more attractive to mermen and mermaids.
As you might deduce from its name, Color Correction Salon's specialty lies in setting strands right after botched home dye jobs or summers spent touring with Jem and the Holograms. Owner Tom Sollock has taken his tinting talents to hair competitions around the world, picking up numerous awards and medals for his vibrant, cutting-edge designs. While color re-touch is a house specialty, its not uncommon to find clients leaving with shocking streaks of neon pink or electric blue, which the stylists create with top-quality pigments or clip-in extensions that offer all the pop without the permanence. In addition to cuts and color treatments, the salon welcomes the opportunity to makeover heads and faces for weddings and other special events, and frequently hosts kids parties complete with mini manicures, facials, and colored extensions for each pintsize guest.

When it comes to helping others relax, Shaunte D. Strong pulls double duty. When she’s not unwinding kinked muscles at Massage Envy, the nationally certified licensed massage therapist also takes on clients through her own business, Indulgence. No matter the venue, Shaunte alleviates discomfort associated with everyday stress through Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal modalities. Her rehabilitative massage reduces scar tissue after surgery or trauma, and her sports-massage techniques help to improve range of motion and heal athletic injuries incurred during particularly involved victory dances. Clients looking for further indulgence may purchase Shaunte's staycation package: a two-hour treatment—performed in patrons' homes or at the studio—that includes a facial, exfoliating foot treatment, massage, and light refreshments.
