?How would you describe yourself?? ?What is your ideal look?? These are some of the first words new clients hear from owner Frances of Amore Francesca Salon & Spa. Frances takes the time to get to know her clients during meaningful conversations to ensure that their new ?dos will reflect their personality and beauty goals. These conversations can be heard swirling through the chic black-and-gray salon by her team of new and junior- and senior-level stylists, each armed with high quality MoroccanOil and Schwarzkopf products. As stylists revamp ?dos with precision cuts, ombre hair coloring, and special-occasion updos, nail technicians dole out no-chip and regular manicures to add the finishing touch. To complement the full-service salon, a full-service spa keeps skin looking effortlessly healthy with airbrush and UV tanning as well as waxing services.
After receiving her aesthetics and massage-therapy licenses, Gloria Bach assembled a crack team of professionals and enlisted the help of Pevonia Botanica and DermaQuest skincare products to devise the well-rounded service arsenal at GT Massage & Skin Care. The in-house massage therapist, whose quest to bolster his prowess brought him to study in destinations as diverse as India and Texas, demonstrates his bodily know-how by easing sore muscles prone to overworking themselves during action-movie marathons. Meanwhile, aestheticians tackle rosacea, acne, and signs of aging with 18 assorted facials, many of which harness microdermabrasion or Purelight LED technology to rescue the face from impurities and dead skin cells.
Carol Hameister, a former United Airlines flight attendant, spent 15 years reminding travelers about the first step in an emergency?put on your own oxygen mask before helping others. Today, Carol invites people into her newly expanded Stolen Moments Spa, where they can forget distractions and stresses and focus on themselves during spa treatments. By bridging the divide between med spa and day spa, Carol?s services blend the efficacy of treatments such as microdermabrasion with the pampering qualities of botanical-based facials. Stolen Moments uses only botanically based products.

Platinum Salon & Spa fills three floors with beauty professionals doling out pampering treatments. After a quick consultation, hair stylists cut locks into styles that complement face shapes, adding the occasional highlight or a new, all-over hue. Elsewhere, the dedicated pedicure room, which is blanketed in zebra-print walls, hosts mint- and almond-infused pedicures. The manicure room features shimmery stone accent walls as well as paraffin wax treatments and durable acrylic sets. The top floor holds separate men?s and women?s spas, where clients can relax during massages and facials. A medical director oversees the medical spa treatments, which range from Botox Cosmetic injections to laser hair removal sessions that evict unwanted fuzz on faces, backs, and palms.
