From the soft pillows on the wicker furniture to the luxurious drapes that conceal private treatment rooms, April Beauty Time and Health Spa is clearly a place intended for relaxation—for guests. The spa's aestheticians, however, are models of productive activity, working to beautify clients' faces and skin with waxing and skincare services or to rid bodies of excess fat cells with contouring treatments.
At Artistic Cuts Salon & Spa, a cool blue tile mosaic greets visitors when they approach the desk, scarcely concealing murals of swans and cranes that usher in a feeling of serenity. Beneath hanging lanterns, specialists perform a variety of salon and spa services for men and women. Stylists tame locks with custom haircuts, coloring, perms, and straightening treatments, which can be complemented by other beauty services such as waxing and permanent makeup. Spa technicians also reward bodies with massages, facials, and skin treatments such as microdermabrasion.
At Golden Glow, licensed aesthetician Debanie Golden combats all kinds of skincare concerns with a long list of rejuvenating facial treatments, including acne, anti-aging, and back facials. Using Dermalogica and Obagi-C Rx products, she customizes each treatment to the needs of her clients. For instance, she can add a chemical peel or microdermabrasion to any facial to enhance its exfoliating effects.
A head of hair is a blank canvas on which Stephanie Toole creates artwork. At Stephanie's Studio at The Salon Lofts, she cuts hair, adds dimension with highlights, creates intricate updos, and even shapes eyebrows. She executes each treatment with her client's vision in mind, and seeing a client walk out with more confidence than a rhino playing Red Rover is what inspires her passion for hairstyling.
Lea Hernandez has been passionate about hair since a young age. She brings this passion to her styling chairs, where she sets to work cutting, coloring, and texturizing her clients' 'dos. Lea is adept at dealing with curly hair, shaping it into smooth layers or defining it into elegant updos. She also waxes away unwanted fuzz and shapes brows to match newly shorn hair.
Beautifiers at 2 Dye 4 Salon and Spa (formerly Salon Serenity) dole out a cut and style, a hot-stone massage, or permanent eyeliner to patrons in a salon filled with black chairs and track lighting. The always-changing menu of services includes hair, nail, skin, massage, and permanent-makeup services.
