Berkshire's focus on relaxation is as pronounced as its focus on beauty, which is why so many of their services incorporate both. From the fragrant steam of a facial to the relaxing soak of a mani-pedi and the calming cartoon birds who pick up hair trimmings after a cut, every treatment pampers as it soothes. The staff here makes it a priority to exceed client expectations, whether they're styling and coloring hair or giving a healing signature massage. To top it off, the spa's spacious, multi-room facility is accented with cream, plum, and rustic wood accents to complement each soothing treatment.
At A Wild Hair Salon, Scarberry and Bettis chop bobs, upgrade updos, wax wayward brows, and more. Banish bothersome bristles with a wax, during which experienced stylists evict freeloading fuzz from your eyebrow or upper lip ($10 each). Scarberry and Bettis are schooled in the secrets of strands, and will expertly shampoo ($15+), cut ($15–$25), and blow-dry your locks into compliment-garnering form. Patrons passionate for perms can curl their mops ($65+), and a new hair color ($65+) gives clients the ideal disguise to sneak backstage and meet a world-class Boggle champion. Those looking to detail their digits may pamper tired fingers and toes with a mani ($17) or pedi ($30), or combine them into one soothing package. Scarberry and Bettis advise making appointments at least 24 hours in advance.
The staff at Perfect 10 tends to tentacles in a clean and comfy environment. Deluxe manicures and pedicures include aromatherapy and callus treatment along with an exfoliating scrub and massage to create a salad of digital beauty. File-wielders provide patrons with their own manicure and pedicure kits to maintain proper hygiene, so patrons can relax in cushy pedicure chairs and dream of how much more fun counting to 19 will soon be.
At New Horizons Reflexology, a certified reflexologist applies pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to various areas of the anatomy, such as the lower back, thyroid, or semicolon. This is referred to as reflexology, a holistic healing technique designed to relax, balance, and energize the body.
Eight types of beauty bars abound inside Shear Elegance Salon & Spa. Patrons flock to the body bar for detoxifying black Baltic-mud wraps and to the face bar for more than 10 types of facials, including the High Maintenance, which is accompanied by treatments for the eyes, lips, and hands. Clients can also choose a Shellac mani-pedi, lip wax, or lash tint in addition to the less conventional ear candling and three-layer hand facials. But the bulk of the service menu is dedicated to haircuts and color treatments, all of which end with expert styling.
The spa technician files the last rough edge off the nail before applying a thin coat of paint. The red color pops against the brown leather chairs that line Evy Nails & Spa. The spa performs manicure and pedicures like this every day, transforming hands into miniature works of art with standard polish and long-lasting Shellac polish in vibrant shades.
