Michelle Tran opened Michelle Salon & Spa in 1995, and by 2004, she needed to relocate the busy business to keep up with demand. Though she runs a successful business, she still strives to better her skills through continuing education—she’s been trained in lash extensions, OPI nail services, and advanced TCA peels, setting an ambitious example for her team of stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians. As they cut, style, and color hair, stylists wield Igora, Wella, and other premium products. Nail technicians coat nails in shades of name-brand polishes—including OPI and CND—rather than name-brand crayons. Aestheticians rely on Hungarian-made Éminence Organic Skin Care products to revitalize skin during facials, and the on-staff massage therapist kneads away stress using Swedish, therapeutic, and deep-tissue modalities.
The licensed cosmetologists at Mane Focus's two locations trim and style manes using styling products from Joico and Design Essentials. Each stylist works independently to schedule appointments with clients and sets his or her own menu of salon services and hours. Inside both salons, brass nameplates engraved with the monikers of master stylists adorn doors that open to private, signature styling rooms to create a luxurious retreat.
The Salon & Spa at Pine Forest is a state-of-the-art relaxation station offering a soothing menu of facials, massage therapy, and more performed with the latest in tension-eliminating technologies. Pore plumbers unclog face facades to reveal immaculate complexions during the one-hour European facial ($75). A crystal-free diamond tip microdermabrasion treatment ($100) scrubs away up to three layers of dead skin cells revealing fresh and sparkling visages, while the décolletage or neck treatment ($35) polishes outlying areas to a healthy glow. While luxuriating under the pampering stratum of a therapeutic facial mask, a face, neck, and shoulder massage banishes stress from patrons' minds, flushing the accumulated anxiety flotsam from the crevices of their gray matter.
After the eyelash technicians at Adorable Eyelashes work their magic—applying a single extension to each natural lash—no one would guess that a client has synthetic or faux-mink lashes. The beautiful, elongated eyelash extensions typically last until clients’ natural lashes fall out, so Adorable Eyelashes recommends follow-up appointments to keep lashes looking lush.
Eyelash extensions. Keratin conditioning hair treatments. Microdermabrasion seaweed facials. These are just a few of the many options from Changing Styles Salon & Spa’s slate of services. Inside the welcoming, family-owned beauty emporium, an amiable staff of mane masters, aestheticians, and massage therapists greets customers. Then, these experts add pizzazz to coiffures with highlights, diminish stress with a specialty massage, and remove unwanted hair with waxing services or magnets for those with metal strands. Alternatively, they spruce up fingers and toes with acrylic polish, Shellac, solar, and nail arts that incorporate rhinestones.
