Inside Valencia Salon and Spa, Jessica Richardson transforms ho-hum hairdos so they can once again emerge from hibernating under hats. Richardson and fellow stylists snip and style hair as nail technicians pamper fingers and toes, removing cuticles and adding splashes of color or crackling effects on nails. Inside private rooms, the staff rejuvenates skin with facial services and assuages muscles tense from getting stuck while crawling through doggie doors with massage services.
Owner Lori Bougetz and the staff at Lori @ Hideaway Salon, also known as A Loving Touch Spa, bring their aesthetic A-game while fine-tuning human hides during relaxing spa visits, and educate guests on how to continue their beauty regimens at home with the proper cosmetic products. Their repertoire of beauty-boosting services embellishes outer appearances with a variety of facials that combine steam, exfoliation, and massage strokes to leave faces glowing like a five-star restaurant review studded with actual stars. Chemical peels safely slough away expired, complexion-dulling skin cells, and eyelash extensions augment peepers with long-lasting allure.
Well Spa isn't just a clever name. Here, the physician-led team, which includes a registered nurse and certified laser technician, focuses all efforts on helping clients look, feel, and be well. Their services range from laser hair-removal treatments to IPL photofacial treatments, but their specialty is hormone-replacement therapy. They approach the intricate process conservatively, ensuring that patients receive a customized treatment that will effectively balance their body's hormone levels. And as members of the American Academy of Anti-Aging, many of their treatments, such as microdermabrasion and Botox and Juvederm injections, are designed to minimize the signs of aging, helping clients look young enough to ride the merry-go-round as many times as they want.
The hairstylists and aestheticians at Serendipity Salon & Spa dedicate themselves to making clients look and feel their best. They show this dedication with thorough consultations before they perform any haircut, color, or makeover services. That way, they can customize services to each client while learning about their deepest beauty desires.
Tucked away in the Brady Arts District, Chrysalis Salon & Spa’s quaint brick storefront invites visitors into a chic, colorful interior where its team of stylists and aestheticians goes to work. Seated in white leather chairs, clients can relax as a stylist trims or colors locks using botanical-based products from Phyto and premium Goldwell hair color. Spa services range from waxing to facials, including the gold-leaf facial, in which 24-karat gold is applied to the skin to stimulate collagen production and make the client more attractive to Swiss bankers. They are also the go-to providers of makeup services for News On 6 KOTV, the local CBS affiliate. Chrysalis also offers med-spa services performed by the resident doctor, such as Botox, Latisse, and medical-grade microdermabrasion.
At Serenity Aveda Day Spa and Salon, beauty professionals nourish skin and hair with pure flower and plant essences. Aestheticians leverage the power of grape antioxidants and champagne oils during the champagne facial—one of many facial treatments—increasing skin hydration while decreasing the need for regular spumante showers. To give clients a head-to-toe tan without UV exposure, technicians mist the skin with a custom bronzer. Stylists volumize hairdos with hair extensions from Paris, and cosmetic artists replenish lids with thick, long lash extensions. Massages, body treatments, and makeup services round out the menu of options.
