Spirit Salon's upscale spa environment houses high-end products, a skilled staff, and a recently remolded pedicure room. A team of stylists cultivates fine coifs during hair services. After administering indulgent manicures and pedicures, nail technicians dollop fingers with CND nail polish or the residual ketchup that never seems to fully come out of those packets. Like a traveling pro-sports team, the salon staff can also take to the road with mobile services. The salon professionals can be booked for weddings, bachelorette parties, or baby showers. At these events, they cut hair, do nails, and even perform facials.
Kelly Muzall, registered nurse and founder of Estudio de Piel, surrounds herself with beauty professionals who continually pursue ongoing education. Their credentials, like every DeLorean ever made, reach into the past and future—licensed massage therapist Kevin Barry has more than a quarter century of experience in the field, but has broadened his skill set to include deep-water massage and spiritual medicine. Physician assistant Katie O’Brien held director-level positions at clinics across the heartland before planting roots at Estudio de Piel. She also founded a consulting business that trains physicians and nurses to administer injectables. Though Barry and O’Brien represent only two of several professionals, they embody the level of expertise at Estudio de Piel. Each time someone clinches a new certification, the spa adds another service. Since opening, the spa has added microdermabrasions, chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and laser treatments to its menu.
Located within A Lasting Touch Salon, Studio Slender helps guests shed stubborn inches from their forms with signature herbal and mineral body wraps. Owner Shar draws on more that 15 years of experience and works with patients individually, measuring bodies before and after treatments to gauge success. One wrap can reduce between 5 and 15 circumferential inches from the body. Shar also administers wraps on the face or décolletage with an eye toward tightening skin and evening out complexions, which she can then adorn with airbrush tans and glitter tattoos.
Boasting more than 20 years of aesthetic and cosmetology experience, Patricia Turney smoothes and brightens skin within her namesake spa. She doles out seven types of facial treatments, from mini face-lifts to what she calls the “Celebrity’s Secret”—a facial packed with oxygen, ultrasonic waves, microdermabrasion, and prayers for Hollywood’s fallen child stars. She uses warm wax to eliminate fuzz from faces, limbs, and bikini areas, and adds flirtatious impact to eyes with lash tinting. Patricia also advocates and vends Rejuvi skincare products, each made with natural ingredients and formulated for specific concerns.
