A good spa will transport its guests to a time and place where everyday stresses are forgotten. American Image Salon & Spa can take you to a rainforest waterfall, for example—its monsoon massage sends the gentle mist of a Vichy shower cascading onto backs and shoulders. If you'd prefer a steamier setting, opt for the hot-stone massage, during which a therapist banishes tension with kneads and strategically placed lava rocks. There are also packages that provide even longer, more luxurious escapes, such as the 6.5-hour Day of Beauty: a Clarisonic facial, massage, mani-pedi, shampoo, makeup application, and lunch.
Sometimes, however, a visit to the spa or salon is a quick reward in the middle of the day. That's why the staff here administers most of the standard treatments for the hair, nails, and body. Stylists trim new 'dos and flatten frizz with Chi Enviro smoothing formulas, or nourish the skin with specialized facials. Manicures might feature add-ons from a seaweed mask to a layer of eco-paraffin, a more environmentally friendly way to soften the hands than by wrapping them in live ferrets. Gentlemen are hardly neglected, either. Their services include haircuts as well as mustache- and beard-tinting.
For the stylists at Salon Bella, staying ahead of fashion and technology is of utmost importance. That is why they undergo continual training in emerging hair, nail, and skin techniques and use only high-quality products to beautify clients. They lavish tresses with Aveda haircare products and polish faces with PCA peels.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
Advanced certified stylist Audrey Johnson draws on six years of experience, including experience as a corporate trainer for Xtreme Lashes, each time she customizes a Jo Mousselli Xtreme Lash treatment that befits her clients’ distinct facial structures. After crafting the look, she then carefully adheres the chosen set to natural lashes, resulting in a more voluminous look without the mess of mascara.
The stylists at A Perfect Image Salon want to make the world a more beautiful place, and they work toward that goal one haircut at a time. They offer a variety of services that focus on mane maintenance, including haircuts, keratin smoothing treatments, and color services. Clients can also step into the salon for a mani-pedi or facial wax.
Adorn Hair Salon treats distressed tresses to a slew of services. The haircut and blow-dry starts with a consultation with a savvy scissor wizard until the cartoon light bulb above his or her head reveals the style that best accents your hair type, facial features, and favorite popsicle flavor. After a thorough shampoo, a stylist will take to your mop with a divinely artistic fury, trimming and shaping your scalp shawl into the cut of your dreams. Otherwise, liven up listless locks with a fresh coat of color ($50) or soak selected strands in eye-catching highlights ($65). For freedom from troublesome, turbulent headwaves, de-curl with a keratin smoothing treatment ($350). Either way, you’ll emerge from Adorn Hair Salon rocking a head-turning piece of autumnal art that will fetch high bids at auctions.
