The staff at Spa Vargas Wellness pampers bodies and minds with luxurious spa services that deploy the spa's own line of naturally sourced products. Moving to their new location, the team at the Pheasant Run Resort outfits clients with cozy robes and slippers before inviting them to relax in an aromatherapy waiting room, which is more fragrant than a dessert buffet at Strawberry Shortcake's house. Nimble hands can exfoliate skin with a sea-salt or mud scrub, and the spacious Moroccan-style Vichy shower rejuvenates skin during hydrotherapy treatments. The calm-inducing crew passes on kneading know-how to up-and-coming massage therapists and play-doh sculptors at Spa Vargas University.
Over the past 30 years, hairstyles have evolved from punky ’80s puff-dos, to spunky ’90s pixie cuts, and finally millennial styles. Katrina Hish has weathered every fad with a firm grip on her scissors and a desire to please her clients. In 1981, the owner of Katrina's Hair & Nails began amassing hair, nail, and makeup talent, and ended up teaching cosmetology and doling out inspirational advice from beauty school lecterns. Now she combines her experience with modern sensibilities, overseeing her staff as they expertly cut, style, and color hairdos and lavish clients with manicures and pedicures.
Ranked among America's 200 fastest-growing salons in the January 2009 issue of Salon Today, My Salon smoothes and styles patrons' head quarters with an array of services. In the Brazilian keratin smoothing treatments, the salon's experienced stylists coat cranial carpeting in the plant-derived protection of Brazilian Blowout Zero. Free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals, the product John Hancocks each strand with a signature blend of essential amino acids, liberating tresses from the tyrannical grip of frizz. Following the three-hour treatment, patrons can flaunt their shiny locks at the office, at friends' houses, and aboard charmingly haunted tall ships for up to 12 weeks.
The staffers at Le Belle Donne Salon and Day Spa fine-tune all their hair, nail, and skincare services with nourishing ingredients to help clients attain all their beauty goals. Spa services ward off tension with the delicate, flowing kneads of a Swedish massage or the deep-exfoliating effects of a moisturizing body scrub. The day spa can also tend to gentlemanly needs with men’s services, including massages and waxing, haircuts with a hot-towel treatment, or sports-massage pedicures that paint nails in their favorite team's colors.
Headlines Hair and Nail Salon's savvy stylists cleanse, color, and update coifs with a variety of hair-centric services. Clients seeking to overhaul head grass can consult with shear-wielding stylists before tresses are cleansed and cut. Add pop to mops with all-over color or create a sun-smooched look with hue-illuminating highlights. Deep-conditioning treatments add shine and restore moisture to flat follicles, leaving locks as lustrous as a pearl covered in lip-gloss. An expert aesthetician shapes brows by curating curves and evicting rogue hairs from face surfaces.
The trained technicians at Polish Couture encourage guests to leave their cares at the door by welcoming them with a glass of wine or coffee and an array of snacks. High-quality nail polishes by OPI and CND Shellac await to revive tired toes, while hard-working paws can be further pampered with add-ons such as paraffin wax treatments. Staffers also draw upon Joico, Wella, and Dermalogica products to nourish hair and skin, creating luxurious strands and smooth, even complexions that invite more admiring glances than an attention-starved mirror.
