Stonebrook Day Spa caters to pampering needs with a soothing selection of massages, manicures, and facials. The unique Valentine's Day facial begins with a deep cleaning, exfoliating, and toning ($55). The aesthetician's nimble fingers also attend to the delicate skin around the eyes ($10). Then, a skin specialist applies a mask made with chocolate, a blend of antioxidants, and the Colonel's spices (a $2 add-on). As the mask primps pores, staffers administer a soothing massage of the arms, scalp, neck, and shoulders. Hands and feet also receive reflexology treatment ($18), and then the facial-focused experience concludes with a soothing application of the Stonebrook Day Spa’s own blend of seasonally fragrant lotions.
Led by Dr. Kris Armstrong, the med-spa staff at Face 2 Facial erases signs of acne and aging with revitalizing facials. During a chemical peel, techs paint face canvases with glycolic- or salicylic-acid serums that strip away dead skin cells and second noses and reveal smoother, brighter visages. A cleansing preps pores for the thirst-quenching lotions of the HydraFacial, which infuses the skin of the T-zone and the kisser with blasts of hydration so clients don’t have to shower with a fire hose to feel moisturized. The pampering leaves mugs soothed, refreshed, and completely clean, and it doesn’t require downtime or leave behind redness after treatment.
A follicular fashionista weaves the bold colors and intricate patterns of a three-piece feather extension into lackluster locks, bequeathing noggins with bursts of avian flair and the confidence of a peacock at a penguin wedding. Each 5- to 10-inch feather is affixed to hair with a silicon bead, and the process usually takes about 15 minutes. The colorful tufts can endure washing, curling, and flat-ironing and may last up to three months, or until the feathers burst into flames and reincarnate.
