Willow Day Spa owner Brooke Hodge has every corner of beauty covered. She is not only a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician but also a NovaLash eyelash extensionist and is trained in oncology spa treatments. Since opening the doors to Willow Day Spa, Brooke and her team of beauticians have relied on all-natural product lines, Tecniche and Pevonia, to gently yet effectively keep complexions looking young. The spa's aestheticians call upon seven different facial treatments, including LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, and remove unwanted hairs with antibacterial Nufree wax, which doesn’t irritate the skin by leaving behind a residue or its pager number. Cellulite and dehydration are banished with the help of mango-passion yogurt and green coffee-infused body treatments, and the menu's organic airbrush spray tan is designed to last for up to one week.
Brooke is able to help cancer patients and survivors maintain their appearance with oncology spa treatments that include reflexology and a facial. Her treatments combine the Morag Currin Method of Oncology Esthetics with fragrance-free Tecniche products. The beauty haven also outfits clients with a wide range of Raquel Welch and Eva Gabor wigs during private, complimentary consultations.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
Europa Salon & Spa helps clients define their aesthetic image by creating well-crafted coiffures. During a men's or women's cut, experienced stylists take up their shears and shape head-hedges into neatly trimmed frizz, pausing often to water thirsty stems with moisturizing Aquage and Biolage products. In addition to the follicle chopping, clients have the option of pairing their haircut with a professional Redken dye to refresh worn-out colors and impress the fickle drawing room mirrors.
The stylists at Cost Cutters keep pace with families' brisk lives by bestowing stylish haircuts without the hassle of making an appointment. Children, women, and men succumb to the artful snips of scissors and come out with trimmer, shapelier 'dos in a fraction of the time it takes to cut hair with the earth's erosional forces. Signature haircare products from CC Professional lead the charge on each customer's final style, aided by products from Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Tigi.
Leafy fronds fronds line the earth-toned walls of Salon Salon's long, narrow space, recalling the plant-based ingredients of the Aveda products used by its stylists to pamper clients' tresses. Owner and lead stylist Mike Manchester wields 28 years of experience to educate his staff, which includes a licensed cosmetologist who works at a well-stocked makeup bar. Appointments commence with free consultations, and coiffeurs accommodate busy schedules.
Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients’ tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin’s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios’s chariot within 46 seconds.
