Marengo Luxury Spa resides within The Arcade—a retail oasis formerly known as "Cleveland's crystal palace." Founded in 1890, The Arcade rises five stories high, summiting at a glass ceiling that spans the area of a football field. On the way to Marengo Luxury Spa, patrons traverse Roman marble walkways and pass gilded carvings, iron balconies, and cast-iron griffins. Upon arrival, clients consult with a spa specialist who personalizes a treatment plan that may include massage therapy or treatments for skin, hair, or nails. Throughout appointments, clients enjoy a variety of refreshments including coffee and biscotti or herbal tea and blocks of tofu. Calling itself "a perfect sanctuary in which to retreat and discover a new you," Marengo Luxury Spa exudes the palatial ambiance of The Arcade itself.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
Anna Beauty Center’s therapists and aestheticians evince a passion for beauty as they eradicate stress and blemishes with massages and diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatments. When they aren’t exfoliating and hydrating skin, they enhance complexions with cosmetic makeovers and groom bushy tails with waxing services. For added inspiration, they surround themselves with Shiseido, Skin Renew, and qiora products.
Sugar Salon & Spa is a full-service salon located in Cleveland’s historic Warehouse District neighborhood. The stylists here specialize in multicultural hair, offering haircuts and styles, coloring, and extensions—all with the goal of echoing the rustic and revived atmosphere of the Warehouse District neighborhood. In addition to hair services, Sugar Salon also features waxing, mani-pedis, and leg and arm hot-stone massages.
Razor's Edge Salon's stylists help clients achieve their image goals. They offer haircuts and coloring treatments for both men and women, as well as shaves for men that leave their faces looking dapper and well groomed. In addition to hair services, beauticians here offer mani-pedis, massages, custom spray tanning, and body wraps, which help tone bodies and foster slimmer physiques.
Waxing may not be the most relaxing of spa services, but Bloom & Clover Wax Studio is out to change all that. Here, clients recline in comfy massage chairs during their hair-removal appointments. Meanwhile, the aestheticians do their part to make each session as quick and painless as possible, using hard and soft waxes to strip away unwanted fuzz from brows, lips, chins, underarms, backs, legs, and anywhere in-between. Besides traditional waxing, Bloom & Clover also offers sugaring?a form of hair removal that uses a vegan-friendly paste made from sugar, water, and lemon in place of the wax. Because the formula is all-natural, it's gentler on skin and typically causes less irritation while still rendering skin as smooth as a baby bald eagle's head.
