The beauticians at Luxury Nail Spa & Salon are constantly honing their skills and techniques through training with industry vets such as Bumble & Bumble Academy, Chanel, and Redken. Aestheticians revitalize skin complexion with anti-aging facials and rake their brushes through OPI nail polishes to make nails as bright and colorful as minced rainbow. Clients sip complimentary beverages while watching locks tumble from their shoulders and feeling aches dissolve from muscles during hair and massage treatments.
At Color Bar Salon & Spa, the staff members aren’t merely stylists—they’re artists of sorts, who take a creative, design-minded approach to each client’s appearance. From fashion-forward hair services to nail care that calls on OPI polishes and fastidiously sterilized instruments, they tap into their years of experience to pamper and beautify each guest. In the spa, rejuvenating facials leave skin looking luminous and hot-stone and deep-tissue massages release tension lurking within muscles. The staff even performs laser hair-removal treatments that grant skin with permanent smoothness, forgoing the need to use razors, wax, or tiny Zambonis ever again.
The massage therapists at Happy Feet Spa are firm believers in the theories of reflexology, which hold that certain points on the feet correspond with the health of the entire body. They employ reflexology and pressure-point techniques during foot-massage sessions that last up to two hours and have drawn praise from the likes of Stuff Boston. Each treatment begins with a foot soak, and clients are welcome to enjoy beverages and fresh fruit during treatment or request use of the semi-private VIP room to bit tearful goodbyes to long-held stress in the arches of their feet.
If the nails are a canvas, then the three technicians at Artistic Nails are Leonardos, creating nail artwork that’s skillful and possibly full of secret messages. Beyond the boutique’s menu of manicure, pedicure, and acrylic-nail services, the staff mollifies neck aches with massages and hydrates dry skin with warm, soothing paraffin wraps.
An elegant palace of pampering greets pore proprietors to Maison Esthetique Christiane Bourque Spa, where indulgence and rejuvenation is the norm. Relax in the lounge and perk up the dermis with a complimentary cup of coffee or tea before the helpful, friendly staff whisks you away for the classic European facial ($80) and classic pedicure ($45) treatments. Close your eyes and relax as a master aesthetician uses traditional techniques to deeply cleanse the pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, and massage the skin during the 50-minute facial. The treatment will restore the frontispiece to a fit and bright disposition, sealed in its shiny fate with a creamy, rich mask personalized for your skin type and favorite Tony Danza character. Equal care is lavished on the lower paws for the classic pedicure. An exfoliation will stimulate shoe-fillers while a deliberate polishing of the toe chapeaus leaves them feeling dapper, bright, and spry atop feet feeling soft and silky.
Tucked inside the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, The Spa at Atlantis tends to world-weary guests tired after a day of splashing around the CoCo Key Water Resort, as well as local bodies dropping by for a simple day of pampering. Experienced massage therapists revive fatigued muscles and increase flexibility through a variety of modalities, incorporating hot stones into many styles to ease deep-seated aches and keep newly lightened spirits from floating away.
Facials blend cleansing and toning tonics to calm acne or aging skin and leave mugs well-moisturized with custom masks, and OPI polishes enliven digits after nails and cuticles are meticulously groomed and softened with lotion or exfoliating sugar scrubs. After working up an appetite by way of relaxation, clients can also opt to enjoy a light spa lunch of café sandwiches and salads or test out new feathered hair extensions by taking flight to the nearest pizza parlor.
