At La Rose Spa, getting a beautiful complexion doesn’t require exposure to harsh chemicals. The aestheticians pull from a roster of Eminence organic skincare products during every facial and body treatment, enlisting the skin-smoothing powers of salves such as Hungarian herbal mud and a pomegranate-infused sugar scrub. The Riverpoint Plaza spa also showcases their holistic beauty and wellness philosophy with customized massages, which range from the muscle-relaxing strokes of a hot-stone session to the customized stress-annihilation of a prenatal treatment. Before beginning any service, including Solar acrylic manicures and UV-free spray tanning, La Rose Spa encourages clients to enjoy a cup of complimentary tea as they unwind amid the boutique spa’s tranquil atmosphere.
While clients listen to music and sip complimentary wine, the techs at Jasmine Nail Salon primp both men and women with services such as mani-pedis, gel nails, facials, and waxing. To ensure safety, they sterilize all of their instruments with a hospital-grade autoclave. They also use basin soaks and lavations to eliminate bacteria, and meticulously scour their stations after each client's treatment. When they aren't performing regular services, techs also host pedicure parties for special occasions. In addition to their namesake tootsie treatment, the parties also include optional karaoke, which helps guests unwind and speed up the drying process by doing the motions to “Y.M.C.A.” with their feet.
The tranquil atmosphere of Sarah Lee Thomas’ eponymous spa begins in the waiting area, where practically silent black-and-red wicker furniture cozies up to a burbling fish tank whose denizens execute rounds of synchronized relaxing. Dim lights soothe clients as they enter private treatment rooms to undergo tension suspension in the form of massages and facial treatments. For massage, Sarah Lee corrals oils, polished basalt lava stones, and bodily scrubs, all of which aid and abet her myriad body-manipulation techniques. Spa sessions can also include one of her signature facials, which revamp complexions in need of hydration, anti-acne ointments, or written permission to bob for apples in the fountain of youth.
Daneen Carson, is a licensed aesthetician who believes in making clients feel special with her treatments. Her staff of nail technicians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists feel the same way. Together, they've created an all-encompassing spa with pampering available in many forms. The spa offers rock-fountain pedicures, which take place in private rooms and include mineral footbaths and reflexology, along with soothing hot-stone massages and cleansing skincare treatments. Elan Spa also makes clients feel special by accentuating their facial features with permanent makeup, Derma fillers, and Botox.
If it’s a beauty-related service, chances are that Escape Salon has it covered. Stylists create custom coifs via men’s and women’s haircuts, coloring, texturing services, and formal updos. Five different pedicure services—some of which include warm paraffin dips and hot-stone therapy—reward hardworking feet for their years of loyal service, and custom spray tanning bronzes bodies without requiring customers to construct wax wings and fly too close to the sun.
In addition to offering special prices for kids’ haircuts, Escape Salon also pampers youngsters with manicures and pedicures designed especially for them.
Guy & Co's team of beauticians overhauls outmoded outer appearances with an aesthetically driven menu of services for hair and skin. Hydei Childs, the salon's skincare expert, wields Dermalogica products in a private treatment room during classic and luxe facials such as the caviar collagen mask. Out in the salon, scissors-wielding stylists reimagine manes with haircuts, coloring treatments, and upright cowlick extensions, or aestheticians soften epidermal expanses with facials and waxing sessions. Botanical products from Moroccanoil and Aveda help staffers accomplish beauty-boosting feats and are also available for purchase à la carte. Sandy hues wash over the salon's tranquil interior, where walls of ornately wrought mirrors allow patrons to view their freshly shorn hairdos.
