The beauty technicians at Hello Gorgeous Day Spa groom guests with a comprehensive roster of spa and salon services. Stylists renovate manes with haircuts and coloring, and aestheticians tackle epidermal ailments with tanning, body wraps, and facials that enlist aloe-based formulas that exfoliate and pack in more moisture than a hoarding rain cloud. A resident massage therapist kneads away stress alongside aestheticians who can diminish cellulite and wrinkles. To fully pamper clients, Hello Gorgeous bundles its plentiful services into thoughtful makeover packages that outline fashion and makeup advice and prep patrons for special events, such as proms, weddings, or bouts of competitive wedding-cake demolishing.
The Remington Suite Spa's nail artist speckles toes with real, loose glitter to give customers gaze-stealing leg tips. By choosing from 25 available colors—including silver, turquoise, and coral—patrons can pick out which hue will best dazzle sandal denizens and blind ankle-pinching horseshoe crabs during beach outings. Piggies then don a coat of gel-based polish before basking in a glitter downpour. A brief session under a UV light serves to seal in the glitzy mini sequins, and leaves toenails sporting smooth surfaces after no additional drying time. Though a pedicure is not included in the glitter toe treatment, newly flashy nails more efficaciously resist chipping than those wearing standard polishes or tiny stained-glass portraits of soccer players.
Ashley’s Hair Design doubles down on beauty with hair services and massages. Chic cuts and highlights take care of revamping visages, while massages work on refreshing bodies. Therapists unfurl Swedish and deep-tissue techniques with upgrades that includes cupping and brush or hedgehog exfoliation.
A specialist in pain management, licensed massage therapist Mariquita Smith and a team of therapists help clients relax muscles and release tension inside a cozy studio. Therapists treat chronic aches and pains with the more intensive deep-tissue and Thai modalities and penetrating relief of hot stones. To induce relaxation and promote wellness throughout the body, they utilize the gentle, flowing contact of Swedish and prenatal massage. Their reflexology sessions apply precise pressure on the hands and feet to relieve soreness attributed to stress or overly enthusiastic high-fives.
With its wide array of salon and day spa services, Aperio Salon beautifies clients from head to toenail. In the salon, stylists create polished new styles, color hair, and add extensions. Aestheticians treat skin with hot stones, aromatherapy, a skin brightening system, or a multivitamin treatment that relieves skin from the effects of falling asleep in too many bowls of potato chips. Massage therapists also use hot stones in their treatments, which can include gliding and relaxing Swedish strokes or deep-tissue techniques that target tenser areas.
Supervised by a staff physician, Pretty Medical Spa's team of experienced aestheticians renovates weathered facades with top-notch products and a devotion to pore-sized details. During MegaPeel microdermabrasion, a delicate pen-sized wand frolics about skinscapes while spraying tiny crystals and suctioning away expired cells. Upgrading facial texture from “tree bark” to “Marvin Gaye,” the noninvasive procedure also minimizes the appearance of scars and fine lines and unveils a healthy, youthful glow.
A Louisiana native, Cindy Kirkes at Massage For Stress Day Spa and Salon draws on more than 10 years of spa industry experience to beautify her clients. She specializes in treatments such as microdermabrasion, which can help repair and enhance a client’s personal appearance, much like spray-painting poems onto a building. Cindy constantly works to improve her skills by continuing to take advanced skincare classes.
