Home to a team of professional beautifiers lauded by Ohio Stylist, Enzo’s Salon & Spa designs chic digits with a slew of nail services. Keratin artisans commence the 90-minute service with a signature manicure that sculpts claws and cuticles into smooth curves or silhouettes of favorite mountain ranges. Massaging waves wash over fingers before pamperers lacquer up pointers with a chromatic array of polishes. Dote on down-under phalanges with the signature pedicure, which cleanses and exfoliates feet before hydrating parched arches, calves, and squatting shoemakers' elves. Little-piggy makeovers wrap up as tarsal decorators frost toes in fresh hues. Pamperers also tend to weary pelts during a 60-minute massage designed to soothe away workweek stresses. Reward hard-working visages with the 60-minute signature facial, which invites mugs to take a break from exchanging dirty looks with rude mirrors while aestheticians moisturize and tone skin.

The technicians at Extasis Salon & Spa draw from years of experience and training—with such major brands as Bioelements, Matrix, Sexy Hair, and most recently their own organic skin care lines—to create a place where every client feels unique. A member of the guest service staff pairs each guest with the beauty professional best suited to bring the client's vision to life. During an initial consultation, beauty professionals discuss their specialized skills and the client's desired service. This personalized care fulfills the salon's promise to make sure no client feels like a number, not even the series of ones and zeros that androids process to understand human love. The technicians work separately from the aestheticians and massage therapists in Extasis's 5,000-square-foot hair studio and private spa, named one of Cleveland's top 15 day spas by the Fox 8 Hotlist. Technicians design and color hair in the airy studio, and aestheticians and massage therapists perform body therapies inside treatment areas that are kept private and are decorated with gentle soothing tones to create a more serene experience.
Solia Spa's microcurrent package engages clients for 60 minutes with a trio of youth-resuscitating, noninvasive therapies performed by a skilled aesthetician. After a thorough cleansing and exfoliation, treatments begin sending painless microcurrent impulses through the facial surface to tighten and firm aging skin. Simultaneously, waves of ultra-sonic energy vibrate through vessels, increasing oxygen circulation by shaking out tollbooths clogging blood-cell traffic. The LED-light therapy bathes cells with infrared rays up to three times brighter than the sun to encourage collagen production in a process similar to photosynthesis, except without the risk of becoming a Swamp Thing. The regenerative beams can also help wipe away acne-causing bacteria and uneven texture. Clients seeking to shower underappreciated fingers in equal amounts of coddling may choose today's second option to enhance their session with a chip-resistant Shellac manicure.
