The team of friendly hair stylists at Danielle's Place knows a thing or two about giving. First and foremost, they give every ounce of effort as they impart hair with vivid highlights, modern style, and shine as noticeable as frost in the desert. When they renovated the salon interior, they gave their workspace an upscale and modern feel that matched the contemporary treatments on their service menu. Hardwood floors underline a décor with elegant rugs, gold light-radiating ceiling fans and sconces, and bright purple walls inside treatment rooms.
For Danielle's staff, the act of giving extends beyond the salon. They strive to give back to the community that supports their business by hosting various charitable events and fundraisers, including a haircut-a-thon for breast cancer.
Drs. Wendy Xue and Jung Kim believe that good dental habits should start at a young age. At their practice, they help kids foment those skills during fun, non-threatening visits. During appointments, Washington Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics' team takes care to avoid scary clinical terms such as "needle," "drill," and "plaque that feeds on nightmares," getting kids comfortable with the idea of dental hygiene at the same time. After exams and cleaning, hygienists reinforce lessons, discussing healthy brushing, flossing, and eating habits that kids can practice at home.
Catherine Bello finds the solution to stress where others rarely think to look: the bottoms of their feet. She and her team of certified reflexologists manipulate pressure points on the feet that correspond with specific glands, organs, and other body parts in order to promote holistic wellness in their clients. These treatments can address specific ailments from headaches and sinusitis to digestive problems.
Reflexology sessions aren't strictly medical, though. Instead, Sole Revival Reflexology aims to provide a spa experience for clients, offering soothing foot soaks and leg massages as well as a variety of add-on services such as paraffin-wax treatments. Foot treatments also incorporate a skincare mask in a variety of scents, including one that will make your soles smell like champagne even if you weren't recently kickboxing at a New Year's Eve party.
Many of the staff members are also nail technicians and provide pedicures with chemical-free polish to complement their reflexology sessions. Others perform the balancing art of reiki, which involves laying on hands to regulate the body's flow of energy. During all treatments, a spa-like environment aims to enhance their calming work as guests relax surrounded by decorative plants and the sound of quiet, relaxing music.
Together, Grace and Danny Choi oversee a team of pampering professionals inside Celebrity Nails and Spa 3. The crew treats clients to manicures and pedicures, which swaddle hands and feet with soothing masks and warm towels. Inside the private massage room, therapists mix and match modalities such as relaxing Swedish kneads and trigger point therapy. The former improves circulation and range of motion, and the latter breaks the viscous cycle of spasms and pain with focused pressure. The massage therapists also use acupressure to free up meridians—energy pathways that can become blocked by stress, illness, and lost Legos.
Tranquil aromas and the sounds of soft music drift through the relaxing pathways of Deldor Day Spa & Salon, where clients unwind by slipping into plush robes and Sensi sandals. Attentive spa concierges pour steaming cups of tea to warm the soul and awaken the mind before aestheticians beautify bodies with more than 70 indulgent treatments. The vast variety of services allows guests to soften skin and reduce signs of aging in a single visit that's preferable to the local swimming pool with paraffin wax and time machines.
Dark wooden floors stretch across Suzanne’s Hair and Colour Room, contrasting against the gold mirror frames, stone accents, and navy blue walls. Within this carefully designed space, stylists carefully design new hairstyles for both men and women. With DevaCurl products in hand, the team shapes manes into flattering styles, adds bounce and volume to flat strands, and enhances color with glosses, highlights, and lowlights. The stylists also lengthen short ‘dos with Great Lengths hair extensions, which are made out of real human hair or the hair of a mannequin that was human in a past life. Guests can also visit the salon’s aestheticians for brow shaping, eyelash tinting, or full makeup application.
