The staff at Luminous Spa & Wellness pampers guests with powerful beauty routines that summon pure serenity. During a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, the staff can also soothe headaches with a lavender-oil scalp treatment. Services like these embody the spa's commitment to total-body wellness, rather than just beauty and rest alone.
In addition to skincare, massage, and aesthetic laser treatments, the staff fights cellulite and signs of aging with innovative technology. Their Synergie Cellulite Reduction treatments help smooth and shape problem areas. Alternatively, i-Lipo sessions use non-invasive, cool laser technology to sculpt bodies into lean lines. A private workout room and infrared sauna are available for customers to detoxify.
Hairstylist Jen Thomas specializes in color treatments, and at the music-obsessed, cutting-edge Rockn' Hair, she gets to wield this skill set in particularly inventive ways. While clients sit beneath a tattoo- and flame-covered styling cape, Jen colors tresses with candy hues, caramelizes brown hair with warm highlights, or even paints animal prints onto flowing locks. She supplements her formal training and natural knack for color with high-quality products from Matrix.
Licensed paramedical aesthetician and certified laser specialist Paula Brady, the founder of Spa Medica, first became interested in helping individuals highlight their best features as a judge for beauty pageants throughout the United States. A former Mrs. Texas herself, she applies the beauty secrets she's learned over the years in her practice, as she and her staff perform personalized skin consultations and craft custom skin solutions for each.
Three decades of rock music dominate the airwaves at Rockn' Hair, where stylists with nearly as much experience upgrade hairdos to match the hip and creative standards of famous musicians. Serving as an upbeat alternative to froufrou salons, Rockn' Hair spoils its clients with luxury shampoo bowls, European head dryers, and stylists who specialize in precision cuts and creative color. The edge comes from the soundtrack of rock 'n' roll that spans the '50s through the '80s, and the creative hairdressers who turn their chairs into backstage dressing rooms. The walls double as an inspiration gallery, displaying portraits of stars such as David Bowie, famed for his glossy, tousled locks, and Elvis, known for slicking his hair back with peanut butter and mashed bananas.
Master barbers fashion locks and sever dead ends with hair services performed inside Bull Locks Hair's old-fashioned, no-frills barbershop. Manly manes beef up with modern styles, flattops, fades, or military cuts accompanied by orders to drop and do 20. All men's cuts include a complimentary, hot-lather neck shave that removes stubble. The shop also cuts strands from the tops of female heads with precise shears-oriented maneuvers. Quick lites festoon hairdos with streaks from 6–10 foils, whereas full highlights cover the entire head with foils to enliven locks and enable clients to telepathically gossip with aliens.
