Previously known as Sweetest Nirvana Day Spa, Spa Alexis retained the same soothing vibe and friendly, skilled spa specialists but successfully teleported their dexterous digits to a new roost downtown. Bequeath your strands to one of these sure-handed hair stylists and let him or her wet and wring your mop, cleanse and caress your scalp with silky product, and mold tresses into a charming keratin tiara that best fits your royal dome.
Fix Salon's manicures and pedicures put the finishing touches of polished sophistication on the fingers and toes of salon clients. For a manicure, one of the salon's trained aestheticians will gently moisturize the skin and then deftly trim, file, and buff the nails. The technician then cutifies the cuticles and applies polish to the finger-shingles, enhancing the natural but deadly beauty of wondrously shining claws. The pedicure follows the same procedures for the distal digits. Once clients take the throne at the pedicure station, the aesthetician trims, soothes, and polishes the cuticles and nails, tackling issues such as calluses, worn-down soles, and the depression that the fourth foot-finger feels from not being called "the ring toe."
Overseen by Connie Piazza, an aesthetician for more than 20 years, the staff at The International Hair Design pampers clients with both soothing salon and spa services. Traditional cut and color treatments mix with Brazilian blowouts and argan-oil conditioning treatments on the service menu, and bodies are treated with facials and waxing sessions.
Kallista's paw porters have been painting and preening digits into colorful, tip-top shape amid a clean and relaxing environment for 27 years. Trained nail techs trim cuticles, polish finger shells, and moisturize hands and feet before applying a kaleidoscopic OPI lacquer that’s bright enough to make even the most outgoing chameleon blush. While mani-pedi services typically last approximately 75 minutes, patrons can optimize the duration of their treatments to fit their schedules. Those on the run can get in and out, and others can opt for longer treatments with more thorough hand, arm, and foot massages before leaving with appendages that are more dazzling than a tap dancing flamingo.
Studio 806 is a full-service salon and spa devoted to the relaxation and beautification of the Buffalo area. Staffed with skilled massage therapists, sore backs need only pass through the entrance to find a source of relief in the form of a Swedish massage. Lymphologists and lumberjacks concur that a Swedish massage is an invaluable ally in the ongoing quest for total health. Swedish massages employ several styles of expansive and ebbing strokes to relieve tension, mellow the muscles, and restore free-flowing fluency to the toxin-dispersal chutes of the lymphatic system. During effleurage, the hands smoothly circle the skin like epidermal ice skates as a primer for renewed venous and lymphatic circulation. The petrissage and tapotement strokes knead and knock on pressure points in the human hide, and friction strokes untie the knots in the shoelaces of your muscle fibers. The vibration stroke goes all "cell-phone setting during a ballet" on the back and the limbs to get blood and muscles moving. The lesser-known high-five move at the end of the Swedish massage generates camaraderie and coolness.
