At Nuance Hair Design & Day Spa, stylists draw upon top-tier products by OPI, American Crew, and Sothys to revitalize façades amid earth-toned confines. Hair services stretch beyond basic cuts and color treatments to include Bionic straightening and spiraling, and nine facials battle afflictions as diverse as acne, fine lines, and stuck clown noses.
The trained face exfoliators at Michael Francis Salon and Day Spa restore natural beauty and vibrancy to weatherworn skin by cleansing pores and sloughing away dead skin cells. A deep pore cleanser primes the skin, then the enzymatic peel extricates dead skin cells from the clutches of tiny facial hairs and purifies pores. Once the effects of the peel have taken hold, the face-lift mask is applied, returning elasticity to the skin and making it possible to pick locks with the tip of the nose. Customers exit the roughly one-hour procedure with revived, youthful-looking skin. Due to their skin’s sensitivity, Retin-A users cannot receive this service or dish out constructive criticism.
