Through the bay window set within a red brick wall, La Creme Hair Studio's stylists snip at men's and women's locks, sculpting them into new, contemporary hairdos. The staff lathers scalps with Moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner, which are infused with antioxidants and nutrients to promote lustrous hair and make it strong enough to hold onto a fedora during a hurricane. In addition to hair care, stylists beautify clients' every aspect with eyelash extensions, mani-pedis, and waxing.
Whether given by a massage therapist's hand, an aesthetician's wand, or a makeup artist's brush, each and every gesture at Tamav Salon & Spa aims to bring about renewal and beautification. Rejuvenation begins with Dermalogica skin treatments such as the Age Smart facial—a cocktail of vitamins and hydroxy acids combined with a face massage to loosen tension and release trapped marbles from the pores. Performed by a licensed therapist, hot-stone, Indian head, and Thai stem face massages unravel the body's tension from sore muscles and joints, and IPL laser technology and electrolysis treatments safely uproot patches of troublesome body hair. Before leaving the spa, clients can also swing by the salon for a new haircut or a pampering mani-pedi, or they can visit the in-house lash expert for a new set of eye curtains.
At Within, passionate nutritionist and reflexologist Jennifer Forbes guides patients on a holistic path to health and wellness. After personally experiencing the powers of reflexology to help her heal from second-degree frostbite, Jennifer earned her diploma in the field, and now shares the practice’s benefits of relaxation, stress relief, and enhanced circulation with clients. Her nutritional consultations yield custom plans for diet and lifestyle changes that alleviate fatigue, depression, and cardiovascular irregularities. Toxin-banishing ion cleanses flush the body’s joints, organs, and lymphatic system to revive energy and relieve pain. Patients can also get a muscle-response allergy test and take advantage of ear candling to evict waxy buildup and catchy jingles for sweet potatoes from their heads.
Elite Hair and Skin Care owner Sue Shaker spends her days chasing a natural high. Fifteen years ago, she noticed that feeling confident about her looks positively affected her overall well-being, and so she has been trying to help clients develop confidence through hair ever since. Her journey began at California School of Beauty, where she gravitated toward hair colour because another student mixed the formulas together and created a black hole. Now she corrects unflattering dye jobs with aplomb, having honed her specialty in highlights and lowlights for nearly a decade. To keep the salon current, she attends regular colour classes and arms her fellow stylists with products from Aveda and Moroccanoil.
The resident aesthetician nourishes skin with Dermalogica's products and methods, building custom facials based on analysis of each zone of the client's face and spheres of influence on their friends' faces. Her nimble fingers also manipulate fine threads to shape eyebrows, and trap body hair with traditional resin wax and sugar paste that will not tug on tender skin.
The skin experts at Que Belle Medi Spa aim to freshen faces and pamper guests through a variety of services. They massage backs to relieve stress, slough off dead skin cells during microdermabrasion treatments, and improve skin texture with facials.
