Not everyone can brush the tangles from their own hair, let alone style it. That's why Perfecta Salon & Spa employs a team of stylists who are experts in the intricacies of hair––everything from thickness and texture to color and astrological sign. In the comfort of the cozy studio, clients can request face-flattering layers, or rewire their head's circuit boards with bold highlights.
Leather chairs, marble floors, and exposed ceilings blanket visitors as they enter All About You, an Elite L'Oréal Professionnel exclusive salon. Lauren Johnson and Amy Antoine, the duo of stylists that oversees these confines, carry experience as long as their most infrequent clients' hair. Lauren studied at The Salon Professional Academy, endorsed by Redken, whereas Amy has worked within the beauty industry for more than 20 years. Drawing from these backgrounds, they snip cuts, apply color, and add feather extensions. Other services include specialized L'Oréal treatments, such as a Fiberceutic deep-conditioning product that strengthens hair.
From within Salon Republic, the technicians of Butterfly Kisses Massage Therapy soothe bodies with therapeutic massages and relaxing treatments. During facials, warm basalt stones help relax the skin, easing deep muscle tension and steam-pressing wrinkles away. Staff deploy essential oils aromatherapy alongside therapeutic and Shiatsu techniques, and administer body wraps that hydrate the epidermis with cocoa butter and aloe vera formulations. Butterfly Kisses also puts together spa packages that incorporate a variety of half-hour treatments, such as a reflexology massage with a chocolate foot scrub.
At The Bodhi Body, licensed massage therapist Stephanie Agakian understands that the healing benefits of massage go beyond relaxation. She is an expert at kneading techniques that can help promote circulation and healing from within. The kneads applied during a sports massage, for instance, help enhance athletic performance, and hot stone massages warm and soothe muscles. During raindrop therapy, Stephanie strategically places droplets of essential oils on clients' backs, rather than just encouraging them to embrace a monsoon outside.
At Massage Matters, licensed massage therapist Michelle Miller treats everything from stress to persistent muscle pain with Swedish, deep-tissue and hot-stone massages. She combines these and other techniques during her speciality treatments for the upper and lower back, neck, and shoulders.
