Imagine someone approaches with a smoothie made of organic peaches, blueberries, or mangoes, but instead of offering you a taste they gently spread its contents across your forehead and massage the sweet aromas into your skin. This surreal daydream happens daily at Pure Elegance Spa, where aestheticians devoted to organic skincare nourish complexions with their six signature fruit-smoothie facials and other treatments designed to nurse skin to optimal health. Oxygen therapy revives dull skin in tandem with parsley and cucumber, and microdermabrasion promotes cellular turnover deep within the dermis using an exfoliant of pears and poppy seeds. Beyond edible ingredients, many services also blend in products by Éminence Organic Skin Care—a Hungarian line that heals signs of aging and ushers toxins from the face and body without relying on chemicals or additives.
Those who prefer to save their appetite for later can skip the chocolate and margarita manicures in favor of airbrush makeup or waxing services that clear away fuzz on the face and body. Ocular enhancements include Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions that add natural-looking drama, as well as an eye rescue treatment that aims to save peepers from puffiness, crow's feet, and madcap pokes from nearby Stooges.
True to its location on the second and third floors of Firehouse Place, All Seasons Salon and Day Spa elevates minds and bodies with nature-inspired spa treatments. Goldwell and Aveda products line the shelves in a reception area whose floral décor vies for attention with the purses, clothes, shoes, and handcrafted Elle Cosmetics peeking out from the designer boutique area next door. Back in the pedicure nook, toes take baths in basins of warm water before shedding their calluses and ferrying their owners to one of the nearby manicure stations, where technicians brush fingernails with vibrant OPI polishes. Soft candle lights flicker against the walls of private aesthetic and massage rooms, while out on the salon floor stylists revivify hair with custom European coloring techniques. During the wedding season, the spa’s team tends to more than 75 bridal parties, painting nails, styling strands, and dipping drab white dresses in their vibrant hair dyes.
With a roster of stylists, massage therapists, aestheticians, and members of the ancient and still-thriving brotherhood of barbers, Temptor Salon aims to stake a claim at the cutting edge of style. The modern Paul Mitchell Focus salon houses stylists that dole out modern cuts for men and women, and therapists set guests at ease during massages customized to each tense back. For a more hands-off approach, tanning memberships are available.
Studio Visage pampers clients with a wide-ranging roster of skincare, haircare, tanning, and nail services. Aestheticians beautify nails with Shellac polish, which can last up to two weeks, and stylists create new looks with extensions, Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatments, and hairstyles for men, women, and children.
The staff of technicians at La Petite Spa offers an array of spa services that range from massages and facials to eyelash extensions. In addition to manicures and pedicures, enhanced with paraffin dips or no-chip Shellac polish, the staff also offers body-waxing services and detoxifying body wraps.
