Velvet Chair Spa’s founders designed their location as an oasis from the outside world, immediately enveloping guests with walls of soothing sea-foam green and plush, modern furniture. The color scheme is offset by equally pacifying accents such as flickering candles, calming music, verdant potted plants, and soft rugs as dense and fluffy as a soufflé whipped from the pulp of War and Peace. This environment complements the relaxing services performed inside, including massages, facials, hydrotherapy, milk baths, and aromatherapy soaks. The spa also houses a salon, where stylists cut hair, add highlights, or lengthen strands with extensions.
At Sculptured Nails at Kathryn’s, clients will benefit from a friendly atmosphere and top-notch services that have been spiffing up hand pointers since 1974, when humans first evolved fingernails. Specializing in sculptured nails, Kathryn’s experienced staff masterfully molds nail canvasses into works of art. Each sculptured nail is expertly applied using a powder and liquid concoction so that it follows the shape of a natural nail and extends it to a desired length. No flimsy factory-made nail tips are used, avoiding lifting and air pockets. Additionally, all nails are precisely hand-filed and gussied up with any polish color, a French or American manicure, or a sturdy Viking manicure that’s handy for battleaxe wielding. Finally, you'll get to either hydrate your dry hands with an extreme cuticle treatment or relax them with a hand massage.
At Bei Capelli Salon, master stylist Tiffany Fitzpatrick remodels hairs with calculated snips and the sleeking effects of moisturizing treatments. Ms. Fitzpatrick nourishes strands with products from brands such as Matrix, Redken, Paul Mitchell, Aquage, and Moroccanoil. During treatments, guests receive a complimentary water, soda, or coffee along with access to the latest magazines and feelings of relief that they can get frizz-free follicles without sending their hair to the dry cleaners.
The stylists of Salon Eleven—some of whom boast several decades of experience—combine their diverse knowledge to style hair, brows, and nails into flattering designs. They wield an arsenal of high-end products, such as Soma, Simply Organic, and Sudzz, during salon treatments, which can highlight individual strands, add length with extensions, or give hair a new shape without molding locks around a functioning beehive. Ample mirrors line the salon's taupe-colored walls, leading to a pedicure throne in the back that bubbles with skin-softening water in preparation for an array of refining nail services.:m]]
The technicians at Pro Nails & Spa draw from more than 15 years of experience to groom hands and feet. They shape nails, buff away calluses, and apply long-lasting acrylic nails or Shellac polish. Clients can opt for relaxing spa accents such as hot stone pedicures or for a waxing session.
