Shandora's staff of beauty mavens use their pampering prowess to exfoliate, polish, and massage skin jumpsuits against the backdrop of a soothing, secluded spa getaway. The manicure sculpts and shapes tips before fortifying finger helmets with Shellac nail polish, its quick-drying shine primed to retain sparkle for roughly 14 days. They'll then treat feet tired from two-stepping neighborhood sinkholes with the stone pedicure, during which clients can sip a complimentary glass of wine as hot towels and hot stones relieve tension and a sugar exfoliate flushes dead skin from paws' pores. Alternately, Shandora's massage therapists glide, knead, tap, and shake muscles in the Swedish massage, which helps to whisk away stress and muscle tension. Or preen your cheeks with the one-hour facial, during which Shandora specialists will use all-natural Pevonia Botanica products to deep-clean and exfoliate stressed skin and then conduct enzyme peel to cast out rogue toxins, blackheads, and black holes.
Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, gents there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Patrons sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, complete with a cleansing and towels warmed by hugs from bald eagles. The stylists and barbers only enlist professional products from brands such as American Crew and Aveda for Men, which are tailored to male hair and emanate fragrances like a bouquet from a Camaro.
Eclipse Salon and Spa's stylists and aestheticians—some of whom possess nearly 30 years of experience—enhance the images of ladies, gentlemen, and children with salon and spa treatments. While undergoing makeovers, patrons gaze at the studio's décor, in which the coolness of tiles juxtaposes against the warmth of dark leather chairs and wooden furnishings. In addition to hair services, ranging from precision cuts to full highlights, the salon's team tends to hands and feet with mani-pedis and reflexology sessions, while façades receive refurbishing via facials, eyelash extensions, and meticulously stenciled moustaches.
