D’Lazo Hair Salon & Spa’s owner, Rachel Lazo, personally designed the business’s interior in 2006. The salon’s 14-foot walls give way to an exposed industrial ceiling that clings to dangling chandeliers and extra-long ponytails not ready to say goodbye. Learned stylists clip hair, add dimension with polychromatic highlights, and sculpt fanciful updos for weddings. Across the way, soothing music softly tickles ears throughout D’Lazo’s spa zone, where a roster of services banishes stress. Seasoned hands swoop across backs to deliver deep-tissue massages, and hot stones warmly loosen the spine with heat more effectively than a hula-hoop fresh from the microwave.
For the staff at Jolie Beauty Spa and Nails, a spa isn't just about escaping stress; it should also be a sanctuary from the world's ubiquitous toxins. Inside the 98% chemical-free facility, clients bask in botanical ingredients such as green coffee extract, paraffin wax, aromatherapy oils, and fairy kiss residue. But before the team performs any of their signature spa services, they consult with each client to help tailor their sessions to address their needs.
Con’s Organic Spa owner Con Ciecko isn't just an expert in the beauty industry. She's also a reiki master and a medical tattoo technician. These specialties, along with her education and training at Michigan and California institutes, have prepared her to execute services that both beautify and relax her clients. Besides kneading muscles with several massage modalities, she cleanses skin with organic facials, bronzes limbs with airbrush tanning, and administers makeup applications for weddings or black-tie viewings of TV weddings. Joined by a skilled staff that includes her daughter Kiya, a massage therapist and nail technician, Ciecko infuses her new spa confines with a welcoming and personable vibe as she helps her clients develop their own signature looks.
Dr. Jeff Allyn has been a practicing chiropractic physician for more than two decades. In 1994, he opened the doors to his own practice at Berkley Chiropractic Clinic. Here, Dr. Allyn and his staff manage issues with muscles and bones in an honest, ethical fashion, zeroing in on each individual's unique needs. The process typically starts with a free consultation, which enables Dr. Allyn to pinpoint problem areas and determine whether or not a patient is actually just two pranksters stacked on each other's shoulders. From there, the doc and his staff decide if chiropractic manipulative care is an option, and if other forms of therapy, such as massage, could also be helpful.
Behind the pink curtains that accent Salon Miracles’ storefront windows, proprietor Judy Moon has created a tranquil haven for beauty and spa services. Stylists perform haircuts, color, and texturing treatments as aestheticians manicure fingers and toes, wax away unwanted body hair, and administer high-tech anti-aging treatments and reviving facials. In addition to her work at Salon Miracles, Judy offers spiritual readings and organizes open-mic nights at her adjacent business, Angel Moon Café. Judy also creates handmade angel and cross jewelry.
The staff at Progressive Laser beautify bodies with minimally invasive med-spa services during appointments scheduled seven days a week. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels exfoliate visages to imbue skin with a youthful glow, and injections of dermal fillers and Botox help smooth out fine lines. Hair removal with a Lumenis LightSheer laser can also clear-cut body foliage or pay homage to a favorite parent by shaping a patch of arm hair to spell out mom.
