Heather Alverson knows that the most minute details count. Whether she is scaling back a cuticle or applying a long-lasting polish, she attends to her clients with the precision of a time-traveling weatherman. Clients leave the salon confident that their fingernails and toenails are in top-notch shape.
Whether your goal is to disguise aging, neutralize acne outposts, or emulate the soft skin of the faces on Euros, Aqua’s staff will help you decide on the right facial for your skin and customize it to match. The European facial deep cleanses your flesh-emoticon before exfoliators decimate hidden pore pockets of unwanted things such as discontinued skin cells, skin-hugging smog, and outgrown tricycles. The more intensive anti-aging facial smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles without turning the clock too far back and leaving you with a baby’s head. The acne facial, meanwhile, helps transform your frontispiece from pizza back into skin, removing minor scars along the way. All three treatments will leave you with skin that shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, only without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it.
The experienced stylists at Hair Rage deftly trim shining tresses and technicians pamper fingers and toes with expert nail services. During an initial hair consultation, clients meet with stylists to discuss which cuts will attractively frame their features or enhance the realism of a rubber Richard Nixon mask. Experienced fingers then massage scalps with nourishing shampoo at rows of sleek black sinks before stylists snip, style, and blow-dry tresses at a mirrored styling station. Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.
In an elegant setting that exudes tranquility, the stylists at Deja'Vu pamper female and male patrons with comprehensive beautifying treatments. Entrust a coif to the skilled scissor hands of a salon specialist, who can customize an alluring haircut and beguiling styling that best reflects the client’s unique personality and ideal credit score. Meanwhile, a shampoo treatment soothes the scalp and ensures that locks sport a healthy shine in their ‘do debut.
Trenz Salon & Spa accentuates the body’s appealing attributes with the help of an experienced staff. The 1.5- to 2-hour spa mani-pedi offers harried hands and fatigued feet a chance to spruce up their faded facades. Skilled nail technicians strip polished portraits and ease tepid people paws into a relaxing bath, where they can soak themselves or perfect doggie-paddle techniques. After resurfacing from their deep-sea sousing, a savory sugar scrub is massaged onto feet to exfoliate pores and sweeten the skin. Fingertips are then prepared for their shellacking, while a foot mask is applied to disguise tootsies on the run from style-stifling sneakers. Customers then choose from a palette of polishes, and shellac is brushed onto colored claws to prevent premature chipping, a process that can extend the life of the lacquer for up to two weeks.
