Utilizing Jan Marini’s C-Esta product line, Pura Bella Salon and Spa's Lindsey Byrd glamorizes visages with pampering facial treatments. The one-hour appointment begins with a deep cleansing and speedy exfoliation that clears skin of outdated layers and last season’s grime. The aesthetician then wrangles unwanted subcutaneous entities with a pore-extraction session and dote upon the upper body and scalp with a light massage. A hydrating vitamin C mask coats epidermal coverings, with skin-tightening serums reinvigorating tension like a courtroom drama surprise witness. The glow-bestowing session finishes with an eye treatment, refreshing and invigorating peepholes as patrons leave the salon’s soothing confines.
Expert nail artists at Final Touch Nails & Spa apply a mélange of aromatic herbs and oils to naturally refine fingers and toes. Lucky digits begin with a customized botanical experience that offers selections from the spa's fragrant herb menu such as rosemary, ginger root, and chamomile flower. Hands and feet simmer in a warm water bath to cleanse nails, soften skin, and enact complex rubber-ducky dramas before manicure mavens pamper cuticles and lovingly shape nails. After calluses and dead skin cells are banished to epidermal underworlds, a hot-stone massage and warm-towel treatment melt away excess tension. A paraffin treatment also teams up with a soothing mask to leave skin hydrated and silky smooth before the one-hour cuticle coddling culminates with a choice of lacquer, nail strengthener, or Star Trek–themed finger puppets.
Ensconced in the pastel walls of The Tickled Pink Party Palace, girls try out the royal lifestyle, feasting at tables laid in linen, stemware, and fine china under glimmering chandeliers. During the palace’s dress-up parties, young ladies don feather boas and jewelry, costuming themselves as glamorous fairies, mermaids, and ballerinas. Staffers pamper partygoers with miniature manicures, facials, and other treatments during spa parties, which prepare them for an adulthood auditing fairy godmothers. Alternatively, the girls learn to bake and decorate their own cakes during culinary-themed festivities complete with child-size chef hats and aprons. To ensure that every party is a private one, the palace hosts only one event at a time.
