Paradise Salon's staff expertly renders the services necessary to bolster their clients' looks. Hair treatments such as Brazilian blowouts and deep conditioning keep strands smooth and strong enough to twirl around fingers or flip over shoulders. Nail services groom hands and feet—vixen reds light up fingers like glow sticks light up a rave in a cave. The technicians can also use a Japanese solution to keep lashes curled to the ideal level, enabling flirtatious winks for up to six weeks.
Uspa therapists and licensed massage therapists work to remove tension from ventral ends by guiding patients through a 60-minute relaxing regimen. Before the one-hour therapeutic aroma massage, therapists consult with patients to draft detailed back maps for treatments suited to specific needs. Back-pain whispering and an array of other techniques relieve tight muscles, improve circulation, and adorn bodies with title belts of bliss. In a stress-slaying baklava of elation, the massage is layered under a one-hour clarity essential facial. Using botanical antioxidants such as green tea, clay masks, bamboo, and other exfoliants, the facial is tailored to individual skin types and affinity for Fraser reruns. As bright faces blossom, patients' sensory switchboards are massaged and hands are pleasantly pampered. Serenza's clean studio brims with calming earth tones and potted plants, transporting patients to a time when salons spread across the grasslands and baboon butlers delivered fresh towels warmed by the sun.
From chamomile cleansing lotion to honey-almond scrub, a fleet of botanical products find themselves the star at Olga’s Beauty Spa. Licensed aesthetician and manicurist Olga Gonzalez incorporates them into her facials, body wraps, and mani-pedis. Several products work in tandem to refresh faces, such as the fruit-extract buffing crème that exfoliates away dirt and the ginseng mineral toner that shrinks pores.
Pauline of Pauline's NailSpa doesn't rest on her laurels. It's not enough that she owns her own nail salon outfitted with tasteful mahogany-toned walls and plush pedicure thrones, she also designs her own nail services. Pauline's proprietary silk-wrap nail process offers an eco-friendly alternative to traditional faux nails with 100% China silk and fiberglass resin that leave clients with long, sturdy, glossy nails. Clients can also opt for traditional, Shellac, or acrylic manicures, or they can settle into cushioned pedicure chairs that end in warm footbaths. In a separate room, aestheticians deliver results-focused, European-style facials that include deep cleanings, conditioning steams, and light massages to raise the spirits and bring the skin to a radiance that could earn its own office on the color wheel.
Venus Salon and Spa's staff addresses nearly any beauty or relaxation need with their full menu of treatments. Stylists in the salon work within the chocolaty yet inedible frames of full-length mirrors to alter strands' length, shape, and color. Down the hall, aestheticians extract grime with the help of Dermalogica products, while airbrush artists harvest bronzy glows with organic spray tanning formulas. At the nail stations, technicians pluck feet freshly exfoliated with a sea-salt scrub from gilded pedicure bowls before brushing on OPI or Shellac polish.
At Silhouette Organic Beauty Lounge, guests enjoy a completely organic experience. Along with the organic hair and skincare products—many of which are also vegan, gluten-free, or wheat-free—the beauty lounge also provides local, organic teas for guests. The spa even features LED lighting, which is softer on the eyes than fluorescent lighting or interrogations done with the spotlights used to illuminate the space shuttle at night.
While the choice of beauty services can vary widely—from a keratin treatment to lash extensions or a mani-pedi—there's a common purpose in all of them. The staff aims to have guests leave feeling refreshed and beautiful, which is easier to guarantee since there are no harmful chemicals used in the services.
