Tamed Hair Salon has its name for a reason. Sure, the stylists—like in any salon—cut, style, and “tame” hair, but they’re also armed with something extra: their very own signature smoothing treatment. Packed with natural proteins, this curl- and frizz-taming serum effectively seals the hair’s cuticles, locking in smoothness and shine and blocking frizz for up to five months. Of course, Tamed’s hairstylists aren’t just about banishing frizz. Within an expanse of sea-foam-green walls anchored by wooden floors, they also cut and style strands using K.Style products, and enhance color with highlights, lowlights, and grey blending with help from Lakmé color solutions.
Meanwhile, in private spa rooms, aestheticians wielding Rica wax made from vegetable oils and real beeswax remove unwanted hair from the faces and bodies of both men and women. Guys can prepare for a day at the beach or a night at an underground swim meet with anything from a chest or stomach wax to a “manzillian.” Aside from waxing, the skin specialists also exfoliate and cleanse pores during customized facials and full-body salt scrubs. The entire Tamed Hair Salon–crew—both stylists and aestheticians alike—also gathers guests for birthday and bachelorette parties, during which they pamper and beautify partiers with hairstyles and full makeup applications.
After Vernon Rudolph acquired a closely guarded yeast-raised Krispy Kreme Doughnuts recipe from a New Orleans pastry chef, he shared his appreciation for delectable disks by opening shop in 1937 and selling the first Krispy Kremes to grocery stores. The wafting aroma of glazed Krispy Kreme Doughnuts increased demand for the sweet treats and caused Rudolph to redesign his building's layout to include a walkup window, Rudolph was able to sell them directly to any passing customer who demanded a snack. Later, he joined forces with equipment engineers, creating baking equipment that guaranteed uniform shape and dough consistency.
Rudolph's departure to a pastry-filled afterlife in 1973 did not stop Krispy Kreme from expanding into a global sensation and continuing to innovate. In recent years, the company enhanced the treat-retrieving experience by introducing a Hot Light that, when illuminated, indicates when Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are fresh off the conveyor belt.
Visitors could explore Tyler Arboretum for hours and still not see everything it has to offer. For one thing, it's huge?the arboretum covers 650 acres of woodlands and gardens crisscrossed with 17 miles of hiking trails. For another, it's constantly hosting educational programs and special events. And then there's the seasonal variation: the exhibits here?not to mention the flora and fauna?change by the month, week, and day.
Some of the arboretum's most colorful exhibits include a small pond, a 1,400-square-foot butterfly house, and nine interactive tree houses (open April?November) scattered across the property. Tyler Arboretum is open year-round, but some of the best times to visit are in spring and summer, when flowers are in bloom and there are no snowmen around demanding top hats and scarves.
European bricklayers used more than 13,000 bricks to assemble the ceiling, arches, and walls of the wine cellar, the most oft-requested dining quarters in Newtown Grill. Three more brick-adorned rooms connect to the wine cellar, which, along with several other private rooms and a main space, can accommodate up to 500 total guests. The restaurant is nestled in a historic house built in 1798, and the dining rooms have retained most of the building's original paneling, both original fireplaces, and its original powdered-wig roof. Though the space evokes a bygone era, Chef Michael Rigney fills it with the aromas of diverse modern cuisine, combining Italian-American dishes with steak-house and grilled fare. Guests can feast upon hand-butchered cuts of certified Angus beef, plentiful pastas, lunchtime salads, and freshly made omelets at Sunday brunch buffets.
At Facelogic, botanical-based creams and clinical cosmeceutical blends work hand-in-hand to stall the aging process, defeat dryness, and erase blemishes. The Éminence organic sensitive-skin facial takes it easy on delicate visages by tucking them under blankets of vitamin-C rich rosehip oils, and the MD Skincare alpha-beta-deluxe facial delivers smoother texture and tone by paving over skin with alpha- and beta-hydroxyl acids. Citrus and shea butter hydrate and plump up kiss factories during the three-step lip treatment, and an eye mask tackles the puffiness and dark circles that result from staying up all night figuring out how to set an alarm clock. Dr. Fred R. Himmelstein is responsible for the spa's Vaser Shape cellulite treatments, which enlist ultrasonic therapy and massage to shape and firm the body.:
