Armed with savvy scissor skills and top-notch noggin products from TIGI, Whitney Martin takes pride in transforming everyday head topiaries into fashion-forward model manes. After a consultation to determine a style that will most flatter your face shape, wisps will be whisked into a salon chair and treated to a deep-conditioning treatment, encasing hair in rich moisture and repairing damage done during years of drying it in the toaster. A final style enlivens limp locks, coiling them into curls or straightening them into strands of silk.
Tiffany Johnson loves working with her hands, whether she's renovating her home or working the tension out of a patient's back. Her studio, Divine Hands Massage Therapy, is open seven days a week within Soothe Your Soul Healing Center. Inside private treatment rooms, she manipulates muscle tissue with therapeutic and deep-tissue techniques, incorporating hot stones if requested or subliminally suggested. Her roster of services also includes detoxifying body wraps, reflexology, and couples massages delivered in a marigold room atop crimson sheets.
Jenn Guerra is a person of many talents. The certified massage therapist practices numerous forms of bodywork, from the intense pressure of deep-tissue massage to the targeted manipulation of trigger-point therapy and acupressure. But she knows just as much about the spirit as she does the body. She regularly holds spiritual readings in private sessions, at events and parties, and even over the phone, as long as the client’s line isn’t being tied up by someone going on the Internet in 1995. For all of these services, Jenn Guerra can work out of her office or travel directly to clients' homes.
Holly and Kristin](http://gr.pn/ngY3Rf) of Elite Wellness Spa share a passion for preserving and protecting skin, but their similarities don’t end there. Both certified professionals graduated from Paul Mitchell The School’s skincare academy, and now they work side-by-side at a spa dedicated to rejuvenating skin with custom treatments and advanced implements.
Men and women alike stand to benefit from Holly and Kristin’s menu of services, which includes medical facials, exfoliating chemical peels, and gentle waxing treatments. Free of artificial fragrances and dyes, the spa’s repertoire of skincare products assists them through treatments and forms the basis for many of the at-home skincare regimens they prescribe. With more than 10 years of experience in the medical-skincare industry, Holly and Kristin draw on their collected wisdom to treat skin conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, sensitivity, and tattoos of caterpillars that have yet to morph into butterflies.
Though threading has been among Asia’s most popular depilation methods for thousands of years, it only recently made its way onto the service menus of Western spas. The ancient practice has shown signs of becoming more of a spa mainstay, however, thanks to an eco-friendly process that also manages to stay on good terms with sensitive skin.
For evidence of threading’s rapidly expanding popularity, one need not look further than Brow Shapes' Eastern-inspired treatment menu. When not sculpting brows into precise arches, the spa’s artists rely on their attention to detail to draw henna tattoos that depict flowery swirls, geometric patterns, or extremely detailed public-transit maps. The spa also features a variety of facial massages, each of which can be customized to relieve pain, aid in relaxation, and improve skin tone.
