Candles flicker inside the marble fireplace, sending droplets of light into the 1920s colonial revival?style home that houses Quintana?s Barber & Dream Spa. Hardwood floors and tan leather seating compose a warm color palette, and WiFi?installed by the ghost of the original architect?keeps busy guests connected. After appointment reminders land in their email inboxes, clients step into the earth-toned sanctuary for services ranging from basic mani-pedis and beard trims to all-day spa excursions. Guests choose services from a menu of massages, facials, waxing, and haircare, which can be combined into packages for individuals and couples.
Quintana's soothing sanctuary doesn't just speak for itself. Patrons banded together to vote the salon into CityVoter's top five for Best Massage, Barber, and Mani-Pedi in 2013. The spa's acclaim page also spotlights press recognition of Friendliest Staff, Best-Looking Storefront, and Most Helpful Combs.

Cozy up on a fleece-covered heated massage table, lose yourself in the soothing music coming from the Beats by Dre headset you're given, and inhale the fragrances from lavender or chamomile massage lotions?then feel the stresses of the daily grind fall away like a hopscotch champion on a tightrope walk.

She does that with the aforementioned perks and her soothing massage treatments, which include Swedish/relaxation combination massages. Shelly is a certified massage therapist as well as a hairstylist, and so she facilitates inner and outer beauty from her cozy studio.

Clients walking into La Bella Delle Rose Salon might sense a warm, personal aesthetic shaping the styling studio, even if they don't know that the dark-wood reception desk was hand-built by the owner's father. Sherbet-colored walls backdrop ice-cream-themed decorations, a popcorn machine commingles with the coffeemaker in the waiting area, and a manicure station recalls a fortune-teller's table with its scarlet damask draping. While basking in Pureology hair treatments or being prepped for weddings and other landmark occasions, guests sit beneath studio lighting, which helps them tell stylists apart from IRS agents.
AJ’s Spa Millennium has more than its extensive menu of services to thank for being named one of Fox 8's top 20 Cleveland-area day spas in 2010. The all-purpose salon and spa earned that distinction due in large part to its dedicated team of beauticians. Though they wield their scissors, brushes, and facial scrubs as effectively as anyone, the beauticians share an even more important skill: they know how to strike a perfect balance between their own input and their clients’ individual preferences.
Skilled stylists utilize relaxers and Nioxin hair-strengthening treatments to reinvent 'dos, and aestheticians keep waxing treatments thankfully brief—full Brazilians clock in at an average of only 15 minutes. But they take their time administering 1 of 15 facials, allowing clients to relax under specialty masks infused with seaweed and nourishing minerals. The spa's new collection of aromatherapy scents—which includes champagne and rose, wild honey, and grandpa—soothes the senses during massages, scrubs, and mani-pedis.
