With the belief that true beauty can be found "within the sparkle in your eyes, the confidence in your steps, and the lilt of your laugh," Royal Treatment Day Spa Salon assembles a medley of services designed to bring out clients' inner royal majesty. Amid Romanesque columns and floral decor, the experienced team spruces up bodies with treatments that range from waxing and eyelash tinting to facials and makeup applications. Stylists can deftly transform the full spectrum of hair types with locs or flattering cuts, and massage therapists administer 10 types of massage to target pain or promote a sense of relaxation not felt since being nestled in a blanket of scratched-off to-do lists.
During halo partial highlighting services, Paula Gulledge shows off her more than 20 years of styling experience by strategically highlighting strands before snipping and styling them. Hue-imbuing elixirs saturate hair shafts with rich, deep color that adds dimension to hairstyles like 3-D glasses add dimension to work commutes. After rinsing out excess dye, Paula wields shears to stop split-end invasions and carve flattering face frames. A thorough blow-dry and style molds hair into straight, curly, or wavy silhouettes, readying guests for lunch dates, romantic evenings, or photo shoots with a favorite pet rock. Guests may upgrade to full highlights for an extra fee.
Stylist Rachel Roes McCoy began her haircare career at 16, when she started shaping new coiffures for her family and friends. Since then, she has become a certified facial-waxing specialist and trained with stylists Martin Parsons and Nick Arrojo from TLC's What Not to Wear. Nowadays, McCoy showcases her expertise with shears at Studio La Vie, where she severs split ends, snips away tangled fishing lines, and performs coloring and waxing services.
With steady hands and a keen eye, the stylists of Shear Madness Hair Studio twist locks of hair one over another, again and again, until tiny braids take shape. And the beauty pros at this trend-savvy salon won't shy away from more daring styles, such as partial headshaves on women and brash highlights in blondes or hyper-vivid reds. For clients who are getting ready for an interview or a cameo on The Weather Channel, the staff can also execute more classic looks for hair of all textures and lengths.
Studio V Salon & Spa was designed with relaxation in mind. Lilac walls surround the inviting space, decorated with free-standing mirrors and mod white salon chairs. Manning each chair is an experienced stylist, ready to cut hair into classic and modern looks and add a sun-kissed glow to strands with highlights. Clients can enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks during appointments as well, avoiding the awkwardness of having their stomach growl out their inner thoughts.
Cathy Thom understands how little changes can make a big difference. The board-certified hair colorist set out to prove that fact to clients when she opened Total Hair & Skin nearly 20 years ago. Thom, and the rest of the staff, can instantly change someone?s look with a little hair color, hair cut, or beard trim. Clients also enjoy gentle peels to cleanse faces of acne and excess oil, and quick waxing appointments to remove unwanted hair on the upper lip or eyeballs.
