The multi-talented team at Headliners Salon and Day Spa has devoted more than 30 years to pampering clients, bolstering their confidence, and redefining their personal and professional looks. Stylists can trim or color stray locks to create a tidy new look, and nail technicians treat digits with everything from soothing paraffin treatments to chip-resistant gel polishes. Aestheticians help smooth away blemishes with chemical peels and microdermabrasion procedures and also nourish skin by incorporating vitamin C or nutrient-rich enzymes into their standard spa facials. Drawing on their mastery of multiple massage modalities, massage therapists can melt away tension with hot stones or stimulate the senses with aromatherapy.
Bred as half salon, half spa, Scott Talbot Salonspa overhauls men's and women's stale looks with a menu of hair, nail, and skin treatments. Armed with products by Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil, stylists enhance hair color with highlights and gray blending or break into a cutting frenzy by snipping off split ends or transforming floor-length hair into chic bobs to ward off overly aggressive princes. Cushy pedicure chairs line the nail area, where technicians push back encroaching cuticles and embellish fingers and toes with polish and acrylic fills. Aestheticians and massage therapists guide guests into a quiet spa room for one of five specialty facials or a Swedish massage.

Nationally certified stress wrangler Roger Werstler draws from his extensive training across a range of methods and therapeutic techniques to orchestrate a muscle-melting experience tailored to the kneading needs of each and every client. A typical session begins with moderate pressure as Roger listens for cues from his patient, their body, and passing skywriters, using his tension-sensitive hand sensors to determine the course of therapy. For the systematically stressed, a relaxation massage employs the long strokes and holistic harmony of a Swedish massage to restore balance and tranquility to the body’s natural flesh fjords. Peculiarly plagued patients, as well as those who are knotty by nature, can opt for the precise, deep-tissue manipulations of a therapeutic massage. Targeting troublesome tendons and sources of pain such as back tension, athletic stress, and a history of crab-walking accidents, the muscle maestro will employ purposeful strokes customized to the variety and intensity of the ache.

Over the course of 15 minutes, teeth turn two to four shades whiter, helping patients obtain a younger-looking smile without the use of gooey whitestrips or bulky bleaching trays.
