A private treatment room blooms with the aromas of jojoba essential oils as professionals detangle muscle knots or harvest beauty from pores using Aveda's signature blends of flower and plant essences. Staffers can also add pizzazz to guests' hair using coloring products that are up to 99% naturally derived and extensions that are made from human hair or colorful feathers. Additionally, staffers can remove unwanted body bristle with waxing services or immerse tired feet in a cane-sugar scrub and tubs of Yanni mix tapes during soothing Caribbean-therapy pedicures.
The appearance enhancers at Bello Salon & Spa spruce up dull hairstyles and unkempt nails with a wide selection of image-adjusting services. A pedicure indulges tired digits with a relaxing footbath. Keratin whisperers will shape, buff, and trim cuticles, readying toes for debuts in sandals and grade-school productions of The Crucible. Afterward, the pedicurist will exfoliate feet, wrap them in warm towels, and massage every piggie before coating nails with fresh polish that can last from three to five weeks. Alternatively, customers can request a cut and color to transform hair into a new shape, such as a chic pixie cut or a geometrically perfect hexagon. Stylists will also revive lackluster 'dos with a coating of vibrant color before completing the look by styling strands with Aveda products.
A plush sectional couch, flat-screen TV, and fish tank give Soleil Tanning Salon’s reception area the comforting touches of a family room. The same welcoming attention is offered by the attentive staff members, who give each client a piggyback ride to their private treatment room and offer helpful instructions on using the tanning beds and standup booth. A slate of tanning products, including Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, are available for clients’ bronzing experiences.
When Penny Strohkirch and Larry Oliver met on the first day of massage school on September 11, 2001, they immediately knew they wanted to work together. Their closeness came easy, “I think partially because of the very emotional first day of class,” Penny says. After graduation, they found a way to realize their shared career aspirations and opened Rejuvenations Massage and Spa.Fish tanks, whose occupants have names such as Sgt. Pepper, stand in every treatment room, filled with a combined total of 75 fish and two confused treasure hunters. As clients meditate on the tanks’ soothing visuals, Penny or Larry delivers a custom blend of massage modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu. They focus on the healthful aspects of massage to complement or even replace the need for traditional medicine. “I have a professional runner who swears he can't train for or recover from a marathon without me,” Penny says. Even she has benefited from the healing results of massage. “I was told that I would never recover from a shoulder injury without surgery,” Penny remembers. She instead began a therapeutic massage regimen, “and guess what? Never had surgery.”
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic?s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
At Therefore Salon, a team of stylists specializes in transforming straight or naturally curly strands with Redken color and a variety of services. They dress up looks with Donna Bella Milan's I-Link Pro Remy human hair extensions, which do not damage natural hair with heat, glue, or vindictive glitter. Staffers are certified to perform Brazilian Blowout straightening treatments, and can also beautify nails and enhance faces with makeup by LeeLiz.
Guests can check out the adjacent gift boutique for couples pendants and other LeeLiz jewelry. The salon's reception area welcomes guests with a tall green plant, a cushy leather sofa, and plenty of windows to allow in natural light and avian approval of new feather extensions.
