Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's licensed body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs that may include various styles and techniques. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while deep tissue focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a sports massage provides tension relief and injury prevention for an athlete's body.
The beauty experts at Answer Day Spa revamp iffy appearances through the careful application of scissors and files. Skilled stylists quell split ends over the course of approximately 35-minute haircuts (a $25 value), using sheers to reshape frenzied follicles, trained eyes to mold them sharply, and occasional ghost stories to add volume sans gel. During 45-minute Shellac manicures (a $35 value), techs file nails to pleasing lengths before clipping cuticles and applying goose-down-free coats of color. The shellac polish is long lasting and resistant to chipping, designed to stay fresh for up to two weeks.
With more than 20 years in the healthcare industry, ProHealth Massage of Columbia MO’s massage therapist Cirilo is an expert at massaging stress out of his clients. His skill at Swedish massage techniques enables him to purge tension with the gentlest strokes. Deep-tissue techniques allow him to treat the sore spots within connective tissues and uproot deep-seated knots. Additionally, he performs mobile chair massages at health fairs and employee-appreciation events and for secret agents battling villains atop a speeding train.
At each of its locations throughout the South and Midwest, the beauty techs of Perfect Brow Bar deftly shape brows using the ancient Indian art of threading. During each session, a brow stylist twists two pieces of thread into a double strand-resembling a rope doll's DNA-that is used to quickly and precisely remove hairs from their follicular bases. The method can be less painful than other hair-removal techniques while avoiding other depilation pitfalls, such as redness and ingrown hairs. The skilled crews also handcraft intricate henna tattoos.
Sunny Daze Tanning and Salon's lineup of spray-tan technology and UV-tanning equipment—including beds, standup booths, and leg tanners—keeps skin beaming with a summery, straight-off-the-beach appearance. With tanning packages available by the session, month, or year, the facility helps clients maintain bronzed tones no matter the season. To sustain the health of epidermal surfaces, customers can stop spoon-feeding pureed carrots to each pore and instead load up on an arsenal of brand-name lotions, tonics, and bronzers available for purchase. Tanning aside, the salon's aestheticians sap stress during manicures, facials, and a variety of massages, including soft-tissue treatments and magnet therapy.
Clusters of softly lit spotlights beam over the comfortable, armchair-style styling chairs at Brazil In Drops Salon & Spa, located in the League City surrounding area. Amid the flattering lighting, hairstylists who specialize in Brazilian keratin treatments thwart frizz and tame unwanted curls or revamp styles with expert cut and color treatments, fortified by Pureology products.
Aestheticians man private spa rooms, where they tend to skin with rejuvenating facials, ultrasonic contouring face-lifts, and bikini waxes that use organic wax. They also call attention to clients' best features with airbrush makeup, lash extensions, and huge cardboard arrows.
