Winners of multiple awards from Local10.com, the stylists at Xanadu Salon & Spa maintain a beauty oasis, a stress-free haven where they pamper guests with everything from hair and nail care to facials and massages. Some are licensed Aveda Institute graduates who tame tresses with an arsenal of products, including Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology. As delicious as they are effective, their chocolate or milk and honey body scrubs help reduce the appearance of cellulite while softening skin. In addition to keeping skin healthy, technicians also help bods look their sharpest with airbrush makeup, eyelash extensions, and tanning services.
Carla Cardoso had one question in mind when she opened Massage Rio Spa: “what can I do to help people?” A massage therapist, aesthetician, and practical nurse by trade, Carla realized that she had many ways to help others relax and feel beautiful.
She draws on her diverse skill set at Massage Rio Spa, alleviating stress with barefoot shiatsu massages in the morning and soothing skin with deep-cleansing facials by the afternoon. Carla is joined by a team of similarly skilled technicians who specialize in massages, facials, waxing, and airbrush tanning. Clients can even get an application of permanent makeup, which saves the hassle of getting ready in your neighbor's bathroom every morning.
Floor-to-ceiling windows usher sunlight into Body and Skin Spa, where it rolls across glossy hardwood floors and bounces off giant mirrors to illuminate the fresh haircuts, facials, and mani-pedis performed inside. The bright interior matches the team members' sunny disposition and friendly, attentive approach to helping clients achieve their style goals. Clients leave relaxed and made over, with pores that are clear and cut hair that no longer gets tangled in one giant knot around the planet.
