Upon entering The Image Creator Salon & Day Spa, clients are greeted by 17 seasoned stylists, each with at least five years of experience. As they cut and color hair, two certified massage therapists attempt to reduce clients’ anxiety with customized massages. Spa packages combine hair, nail, and body treatments to rejuvenate clients without fairy godmothers. After treatments, visitors can peruse a collection of products from brands such as Matrix Biolage, Crew, and Aveda to maintain their new looks at home.
As an accredited massage school, StoneWater Institute and Spa educates classes of aspiring massage therapists until they attain an associate's degree or diploma in massage therapy. The center teaches students how to perform popular modalities—including Swedish and deep tissue—and trains them for the tug-of-war section of every state's certification process. Training sessions for couples provide a less intense alternative for individuals seeking to give better massages.
The center also includes four private treatment rooms where trained therapists demonstrate their skill by deftly unknotting muscles. These massages can incorporate neuromuscular techniques, reflexology, or hot stones.
The seven cosmetologists at JB Cavour Salon Spa wield more than a century's combined experience in the beauty business, as well as an arsenal of botanical Aveda products. Now in its second generation of family ownership, the recently renovated sanctuary keeps a healthy stream of “ahhs” flowing out the big bay window with luxurious massage, skincare, and hair services.
When taj salon & spa’s stylists extract coloring foils, they don’t toss them in the trash. Instead, they recycle the aluminum, putting taj on a short list of local businesses that do so. This is just one of the ways the staff show how devoted they are to beautifying both the earth and the people that populate it. The members of the styling team have been trained extensively with Aveda and the International Dermal Institute to improve their hair, skin, and massage services. Other thoughtful touches that show their dedication to clients include warm towels for the face and neck during haircuts, complimentary bang trims between visits, and stylists who travel to create stunning hairdos before a wedding or between innings of a baseball game.
Walking away from West Coast Hair after hair-extension appointments, patrons can toss silky, newly lengthened manes that would have otherwise taken years to grow. At locations in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, stylists apply the extensions using a strand-by-strand technique and fusion-free bonds without damaging glue or chemicals. With proper maintenance, elongated tresses can last up to six months.
Certified massage therapist Shauna soothes nagging knots and alleviates aches through multiple methods, consequently promoting increased circulation, concentration, and sleep quality. Snuggle up for a one-hour nap on the studio's cozy, heated massage table, where personalized relief will wash over your back, arms, legs, feet, toe hairs, head, and neck like summer rain washes over a romantic picnic. Depending on each client's desires, Shauna adjusts strokes and pressure to foster relaxation, engage deep tissue, soothe muscular injuries, or improve pre-natal health.
