Wood floors, warm lights, and modern decor highlight Image Hair Studio, where stylists and staff work from a full menu of hair and waxing treatments. At their workstations, skilled stylists outfit men’s, women’s, and children’s heads with fashionable cuts. Those wanting an entirely new look can go for single- or double-process color. Other treatments such as partial highlights accentuate warm or cool skin tones or draw attention away from unicorn-horn implants gone awry. Additionally, staff uses hot and cold waxes to remove unwanted hairs on the face and body.
The professional aestheticians and massage therapists at The Face Place tussle with tense spots and cleanse world-weary complexions in a soothing, Eastern-themed spa. A 15-minute aromatherapy eucalyptus steam bath permeates physiques to loosen clenching muscles and waist-clinging koala bears. Bodies can then spurn bothersome aches with one of four massage modalities, including the smooth, classic strokes of a Swedish massage or the more pressurized, pain-pummeling kneads of a deep-tissue treatment. During maternal massage, practiced knuckles gently search for baby-related back pain, and the integrative reflexology massage targets nodes in the ears, hands, and feet that correspond to distinct corporal zones or prompt noses to glow red and shout "operation!"
The technicians at Wellness Therapy proffer holistic alternatives to invasive procedures, performing a trio of massage modalities to abate aches and unwind knots. Their menu includes Swedish massages—which employ gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to uncoil knots—and deep-tissue massages, which use the same techniques to target lower-lying tissue. They also offer hot-stone massages, which can eradicate tension or lessen pain from a muscle-related injury, and facials that cleanse while moisturizing skin.
After proving herself a dedicated employee of Patrick's Hair Design throughout two decades of outfitting patrons with signature hairstyles, Jodie Gil purchased the salon and undertook a full renovation to amp up the atmosphere with modern amenities. Today, a 25-person staff consists of hair artists, nail techs, and skin specialists, who boast years of experience in their respective fields and knowledge of cutting-edge techniques. Along the row of flatteringly lit styling stations, clients communicate their coiffure needs to help stylists shape and color their locks, and nail techs adorn digits in OPI and Essie polish at the plush, spa-like nailcare station. Facials are customized to suit individual skin types and are available in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute versions, and massages are available in six different modalities.
