From inside Balance in Motion, licensed massage therapist Laura Tyner helps bring daily stresses and pain to a halt. Her services range from traditional Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques to more exotic modalities such as lomi lomi—a holistic healing massage first practiced by the ancient Polynesians. In addition to relieving tension, Laura specializes in alleviating chronic lower-back pain and deep tissue massage.
Inside KE Salon, nail technician Gabby Barrese meticulously grooms fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures. She begins each treatment by trimming cuticles and plying skin with hydrating lotions. From there, Gabby files nails into an oval, square, or hexagonal shape and brushes on traditional or long-lasting gel polish.
Desa Salon's experienced stylists give dated, rambunctious, or sullen hair a new lease on life with an array of head-changing services. Upon arriving at the salon, guests and their hair gurus discuss plans of attack for netting proper hair-to-face ratios. In addition to snips and clips, head bristles also get to luxuriate in a deep-conditioning treatment to soothe brittle strands of lingering horrors from Bride of Frankenstein look-alike contests. With 40% off color treatments, beauty-seekers can also choose to undergo a tint touch-up, an all-over tint, partial highlights, or full highlights to evade recognition from overly chatty birds (may use in a separate visit from the cut and conditioning). After a blow-dry and style, hair leaves the salon shiny, renewed, and indifferent to hats.
Owners Kahlee Nguyen and Erin Ellis put the K and E in KE Salon, and work side by side with the salon's other stylists as they dole out cutting-edge cuts and elegant updos. With their initials on the door, Nguyen and Ellis know that each and every service is a direct reflection of them, and so they hold their staff to a high standard of professionalism and stock the salon shelves with top-name products from brands such as Schwarzkopf and Epicuren. They also count a Great Lengths and Keratin specialist in their ranks, as well as an aesthetician with 14 years of experience, who uses her adept knowledge of skin to soften sun damage, fine lines, and age spots. Once freshened, makeup experts can enhance facial features or teach teens and recovering mimes to do their own, providing hands-on lessons complete with a handy chart for future reference.
Owner and founder Jackie Dark, a longtime eyelash-extension customer, wanted to introduce others to the beauty service that shortened her daily routine. She and her team of certified aestheticians and cosmetologists at Lovely Lash Salon & Cosmetic Center dedicate the practice solely to instant beauty fixes. Some of the services they offer include eyelash extensions—with synthetic or mink lashes in varying sizes, lengths, and styles, they add volume to guests' eyes, making them look alert and fresh during all hours without using mascara. They also perm and tint lashes, as well as spray tanning, teeth whitening, and help improve figures with VelaShape body shaping.
A team of experienced stylists resides in this sleek, stylish salon, refashioning weary follicles so that they do justice to each client's countenance and personal flair. For an exotic, avian air, fashionistas can get three sets of feather extensions expertly inserted into their strands, offering peeps of pattern while reminding dusting tools that they have competition. The feathers come in an array of colors, widths, and textures, and are attached to a small bead that's clamped shut at the scalp. Generally 6-13 inches long, the extensions can be worn, washed, styled, and cut for up to three months, just enough time to thoroughly confuse neighborhood cats.
