Wrapped in Wellness's friendly staff helps bodies take on more toned and contoured forms through client-oriented services, organic products, and wraps that help clients lose up to 30 inches in one hour. Inside the tranquil wellness center, skilled technicians cocoon bodies in sundry wraps, which help bodies detoxify, tighten, and tone with all-natural mineral solutions that ready selves for red carpets, green screens, and awkward encounters with purple-clad paparazzi. In addition to body wraps and weight-loss treatments, the staff also darkens hides with airbrush tanning and enhances faces' youthful glow with rejuvenating facials. Calming décor envelops clients with soothing green and purple tones accented with touches of dark wood. Within private treatment rooms, rich curtains cascade to the floor as clients nestle into cushy furniture set aglow by warm lighting and left-behind glow sticks.
A license in cosmetology isn't enough for a stylist to hit the floor at T'nT Concept Salon—they also have to go through the salon's own training program. After that, they have all of the skills necessary to perform the services on the salon's menu, which include haircuts, conditioning treatments, beard trims, extensions, updos, permanent waves, and smoothing keratin treatments. The salon also houses a color bar, where the staff mixes hues for highlights and all-over color treatments and where many Crayola crayons mistakenly go for a drink.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
For more than decade, clients have visited Avalon Skin Care & Today's Massage Clinic for spa services and counseling from state-certified skincare professionals. Inside a spacious treatment room bedecked with upholstered furniture and framed licenses, experts reinvigorate appearances with services including facials, body wraps, and eye treatments. Avalon's staff uses, as well as sells, brand-name skincare products from Image Skincare, A-Cute Derm, and Biofreeze. Services that go beyond the skin fall into the realms of massage, nailcare, informal SAT prep, and hairstyling.
When Luna Labarca-Norris opened Sweet Escape Salon, she sought to bring her extensive education from institutes such as Matrix, Goldwell, and Tigi to the heads and hairs of men, women, and children. She and her duo of diligent stylists always begin each cut or coloring session with a consultation that uses a mixture of photographs, conversation, and flashcards of salon vocabulary to ensure that clients achieve the look they covet. The hairdressers' expertise lies particularly in advanced coloring techniques such as balyage or multidimensional highlights.
The funky, modern interior sports huge, brightly painted portraits and a pattern of bold, black-and-white paisley on walls, throw pillows, and furniture. A small boutique deals in colorful handmade jewelry and purses with intricately layered leather blossoms decorating the exterior. Teal walls surround the more conservatively appointed salon section, which is accented by little pots and pops of flora on small tables.
Head & Sole revitalizes the entire body, top to bottom, through services ranging from microdermabrasion facials to foot massages. Within a relaxing environment, aestheticians treat skin ailments such as wrinkles, acne, or rosacea, though the spa's specialty lies in treating our first point of contact to the earth—the feet. During reflexology treatments, massage therapists help ease tension in the body by focusing on specific points on the soles that correspond with specific organs, tissue, and body parts. Other times, they simply focus on reducing pain and tension in the foot itself, such as when athletes strain their heels after running a marathon or standing on a bed of coals.
