Euphoria Salon & Day Spa's nail technicians fashion stylish hand and foot accessories with long-lasting Shellac manicure and pedicure. While enthroned upon a pillow-lined pedicure station, guests submit fingers and toes to the nimble ministrations of a filing, shaping, and cuticle-grooming service that leaves nails refined enough to hitch rides on luxury yachts. Benign UV rays fuse Shellac polish to phalangeal adornments, creating up to two weeks of imperturbable shine free of chips and scratches. The salon's crimson accents and brick walls create an elegant, cozy atmosphere, which patrons can soak up like absorbent back issues of Better Homes and Gardens as their nails emerge from colorful cocoons.
Although Patrice Collins works alongside a team of medical doctors and laser specialists, she wields her own secret healing weapon: massage therapy. The licensed practitioner soothes stress and assuages sore or injured muscles with a range of massage techniques, including the taps, kneads, and clogging routines of Swedish massage and the concentrated pressure of the deep-tissue technique. Whereas Patrice deals with tissues, joints, and muscles, the rest of the SkinStar staff works on aesthetics, erasing wrinkles and tattoos with noninvasive lasers or nixing uncontrollable acne with a Spectra Peel.
Premiere Tans transforms translucent skin into a golden covering using bakes, sprays, and polishes. The VersaSpa treatment, which is available at the Dave Ward Drive location, disperses natural oils while sunless bronzing agents evenly baste and moisturize skin with amino acids and aloe. The color spray dries quickly, revealing a deep shade of bronze that glows more than a burning frisbee thrown through the night sky. Choose between a cosmetic bronzer or a clear, nontinted solution, depending on which best suits your body.
The tranquil atmosphere of Sarah Lee Thomas’ eponymous spa begins in the waiting area, where practically silent black-and-red wicker furniture cozies up to a burbling fish tank whose denizens execute rounds of synchronized relaxing. Dim lights soothe clients as they enter private treatment rooms to undergo tension suspension in the form of massages and facial treatments. For massage, Sarah Lee corrals oils, polished basalt lava stones, and bodily scrubs, all of which aid and abet her myriad body-manipulation techniques. Spa sessions can also include one of her signature facials, which revamp complexions in need of hydration, anti-acne ointments, or written permission to bob for apples in the fountain of youth.
Since 2001, Melt has crafted homemade skincare and bath products by infusing natural ingredients with striking scents, such as vanilla cake batter and ginger pear. To ensure the absence of side effects, Melt tests each product on human volunteers instead of on animals or unwitting mannequins. Melt’s products range from silicone-free hemp shampoo to soy-wax candles with cotton wicks.
The beauty technicians at Hello Gorgeous Salon and Spa groom and pamper guests in a modernized wood cabin, a neat contrast with Abe Lincoln’s rustic spaceship. With 35 collective years of experience, the team includes a massage therapist with the knowledge to assuage prenatal pain and stylists capable of transforming hair's color and texture. The staff’s toolkit also includes topical treatments to refresh faces and aesthetic enhancements that augment nails’ and eyelashes’ ability to articulate flirty gestures.
