The kid-friendly stylists at So Spa*Tacular give girls a taste of the pampering spa services previously known only to their parents. Dedicated to fostering a positive self-image for kids, the team dotes on nails with mani-pedis, beautifies hair with cuts and braiding, and slathers faces with chocolate facials. In addition to performing services one kid at a time, the staff also welcomes groups into their party lounge where young guests can eat pizza or birthday cake.
Wavy. Fine. Natural. Chemically treated. When it comes to hair, the stylists at Climaxx Style Studio, who've been in the business for more than a decade, have seen it all. Their services range from routine haircuts and nourishing hydration treatments to trendy ombre highlights, extensions, and weaves. Though hair is their main focus, they can help clients flaunt facial features further with skincare, waxing, threading, and eyelash extensions.
Like a cottage out of a fairy tale, A Petite Retreat is framed by lush greenery and cobblestone pathways. Thankfully, there are no wolves in disguise roaming the halls of this charming spa?only the faint aroma of lavender and a friendly staff that will lead you to a private treatment room.
That?s not to say an experience at A Petite Retreat is anything less than enchanting. The spa?s two licensed massage therapists come equipped with organic healing ointments and warm heating pads that prepare muscles for custom Swedish and deep-tissue massages. The duo?s facials brighten complexions with vitamin-C and grape-vine extracts, and their body scrubs soften skin with an aquatic blend of mud and sea salt as they croon relaxing whale songs.
The nail artisans at Southern Style Salon treat fingers and toes to a mani-pedi that both relaxes and beautifies. During the one-hour treatment, caretakers soak and soften all 20 nails and cuticles before trimming and tidying them. As they buff away calluses from soles, nail nurses massage thumbs left tense from hitchhiking to the Arctic Circle and ankles sore from playing footsie with a peg-legged pirate. A fresh coat of lacquer colors nails with a new shade, signifying the arrival of fall or the election of a new county controller.
Skilled aesthetician Tiffany Henderson has dedicated years to cultivating her technique, studying to earn her license before continuing on to work at top spas and beauty studios as a brow expert, waxing professional, and Aveda skincare specialist. She brings her years of training and experience to Couture Lashes & Spa, where she performs a variety of skincare services—including skin-smoothing waxes and replenishing facials. Though a maven of myriad beautifying treatments, Tiffany specializes in lash extensions, during which she expertly adheres faux-mink extensions one by one to a client's natural lashes to create longer, fuller-looking lashes.
At Metamorphosis Nails & Spa, nail techs employ a line of organic and vegan products to make digits dazzling. In addition to standard and signature mani-pedis, staff members affix long-lasting gel polish onto nails or apply artfully designed acrylics. Aestheticians pamper the rest of the body with mud wraps, detox wraps, and sugar scrubs that help clients camouflage themselves atop wedding cakes. Guests can also opt for hair removal by wax or laser or choose spa packages that include mani-pedis, foot massages, and glasses of champagne.
