Over the course of more than a decade, Josephine Robinson didn't just commit to mastering aesthetics or therapeutic bodywork; she committed to mastering both. She founded Phalanges Spa as a place where all of her skills would be valued equally and where clients could find all manner of restoration and rejuvenation. During massages, Josephine can help soothe tense, stress-laden muscles, although she can also use more specialized modalities?such as deep-tissue work or lymphatic-drainage techniques?depending on the client's needs.
These massages aren't the only forms of relief available at Phalanges Spa, though. Josephine also offers to indulge visitors with body scrubs, waxing treatments, and facials that use botanically derived products to improve the skin's tone and texture while restoring a youthfully radiant glow. Even the manicures and pedicures can become luxuriant escapes with the addition of hot towels, a brief massage, or a recording of whales singing popular lullabies.
Keratin smoothing treatments, pore-cleansing facials, and hair extensions await beauty seekers at both of Salon Metaxa's locations. Owner Kitsa Metaxatos has assembled a staff of stylists, aestheticians, and nail techs who draw from their years of experience to field virtually all beauty concerns. And because each service kicks off with an informative consultation, guests pick up beauty secrets such as how to maintain their new hairstyle at home.
Though they originally opened as Renaissance Hair Removal in 2005, the team behind The Med Spa quickly realized that their clients were seeking different ways to look younger and feel more beautiful. They would later changed their name to reflect the breadth of their newly added services, which now include laser treatments, skincare, and teeth whitening using Energist Ultra VPL and Aerolase, making treatments safe for all skin types, including darker skin. In addition to removing hair, they can target acne, rosacea, or wrinkles with laser technology, or perform non-laser resurfacing HydraFacials that infuse skin with moisture. The clinic also offers the Diamond Medilift: a noninvasive macro- and micro-current procedure that stimulates facial muscles better than watching Animal House and Beaches simultaneously on two separate TVs.
Until humans learn how to download consciousness onto a computer, being beautiful will be important. Thank goodness for Natalie Morgan's Face Boutique. The salon's skilled aestheticians can swiftly wax away unwanted hair from brow outskirts, or reverse the signs of aging with an invigorating facial treatment. Guests may also request a specialty makeup session to transform a boring pumpkin into a sexy dinner date.
Mounted over the repurposed home's entrance, a large American flag patriotically waves above a vibrant floral bed and pillared porch. However, after walking through the bright-red front door, guests discover a European-inspired spa staffed by skilled and licensed stylists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians. Using exclusive skin- and haircare products—by brands including Pevonia Botanica and Bumble and bumble—Carmel Day Spa & Salon's specialists pamper guests with services ranging from haircuts to facials to massages. Sleek monochrome furniture and fixtures populate the salon area and treatment rooms, whose walls feature various pieces of art used to conceal wall safes filled with Monopoly money.
Often when an eyebrow threader removes unwanted brow hair, they hold one end of the cotton thread in their mouth. But at Wow Brows!, threaders actually tie the thread around their neck, a technique that has been deemed by threading regulators in North Carolina to be more sanitary. In addition to shaping brows without disturbing the topmost layer of skin, hair-removal experts banish fuzz from all over the face.
