At Lennartz Olde Time Barbershop, thread choppers relax head pastures with a shampoo massage before shaping overgrown follicles into a custom or military cut and shaving leftover tufts around the ears and neck. The men's rolling-cream facial gently exfoliates dead skin cells to smooth facades, while the men's clay-mask facial ensconces kissers in imported English clay to clear pores of dirt leftover from childhood tetherball games. Afterward, barbers lather up whiskers in warm suds and swathe faces in hot towels to soften the bristles, ensuring a smooth, even shave via straight razor or sharpened protractor. A final cold-towel application and a splash of 1935 Lucky Tiger aftershave top off the pampering.
For the last decade, the staff at Tavernier's Salon & Spa has revitalized appearances and moods with a slew of salon and spa services. Defined by its brightly colored walls and artwork composed of primary yellows and reds, the interior is home to a team of diligent stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists.
Tavernier's hairstylists wield Redken and Matrix products with full-color treatments and strategically placed highlights to add depth to monochromatic hairdos. Nail technicians prettify appendages with Opi polish and soothing, hydrating dips into paraffin wax, and skincare specialists administer facials such as the one-hour basic European facial, which opens up pores like they're interviewees on Oprah so that they release their pent-up dirt and leave with a cathartic sense of cleansing and exfoliation.
Ashworth's qualified corps of aestheticians and licensed massage therapists administer a full menu of beautifying and de-stressing services. The main salon area's open space serves as an ideal forum for trading gossip, penning existential soliloquies, and caring for nails. During the one-hour mani-pedi pairing, a nail tech carefully crowns your regal fingers and toes with new colors and shines, filling the hearts of baser nails with envy. Customers can also opt for a full spa facial, which swaddles stressed bodies in a refreshing wrap and soothes countenances with restorative lotions and creams. Exfoliation and a steam session bring the face-refining procedure to a finale more refreshing than a brisk morning swim in the Sea of Tranquility.
Enthusiastic nail technicians at Graffitti's Hair & Nail Salon set vibrantly colored trends with glamorous nail treatments. Technicians buff fingernails into attractive shapes and tame cuticles with careful precision. Then, nail artists apply the client's choice of OPI or China Glaze nail products. Clients can make their fingers and toes shine together with like-minded colors, or indulge in multi-hued shellac finishes that catch eyes, turn necks, and challenge the faith of all paint-by-number enthusiasts. Upgrades for french tips ($5) and nail art ($5+) are also available.
After graduating from Creative Images School of Cosmetology, Nikki Askew inserted herself into the world of aesthetics immediately, quickly becoming the managing licensed aesthetician at Creating Waves Salon. Here, she cleanses skin with facials that employ natural ingredients to smooth and rejuvenate skin while tackling acne and signs of aging. She also offers relaxation massage and waxing services, and is currently developing her own signature facial.
