Candles flicker inside the marble fireplace, sending droplets of light into the 1920s colonial revival?style home that houses Quintana?s Barber & Dream Spa. Hardwood floors and tan leather seating compose a warm color palette, and WiFi?installed by the ghost of the original architect?keeps busy guests connected. After appointment reminders land in their email inboxes, clients step into the earth-toned sanctuary for services ranging from basic mani-pedis and beard trims to all-day spa excursions. Guests choose services from a menu of massages, facials, waxing, and haircare, which can be combined into packages for individuals and couples.
Quintana's soothing sanctuary doesn't just speak for itself. Patrons banded together to vote the salon into CityVoter's top five for Best Massage, Barber, and Mani-Pedi in 2013. The spa's acclaim page also spotlights press recognition of Friendliest Staff, Best-Looking Storefront, and Most Helpful Combs.
Under the helm of skilled nail technician and owner Regina Kinsey, Polished Nail Salon’s staff grooms hands and feet with manicures and pedicures for women and men alike. Throughout the day, the salon’s experienced crew bustles about the space artfully positioning sculpted glass nails atop existing keratin beds and performing waterless manicures that gussy up hands without the hassles of coaxing each finger into a life jacket.
The trained hands at Abosede's Healing Touch navigate their way through tense and knotted muscles during massages. Appointments aim to alleviate aches and tension, decrease high blood pressure, and address sleep issues. A number of add-ons, including aromatherapy and shadow-puppet shows, further relax clients. Master Reiki Healer Tammie also offers Reiki healing sessions and teaches classes in Reiki, a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
Kim Rogers believes that loving others begins with loving and nurturing oneself. As the owner of OneIIOne Studio Spa, she helps her clients accomplish this through pampering and relaxation services. Rosemary-mint wraps exfoliate and hydrate skin as the natural essences help guests relax, whereas peppermint wraps firm and soothe skin. She also pampers guests with hot-stone facials and massages, along with waxing services and spa packages.
Cozy up on a fleece-covered heated massage table, lose yourself in the soothing music coming from the Beats by Dre headset you're given, and inhale the fragrances from lavender or chamomile massage lotions?then feel the stresses of the daily grind fall away like a hopscotch champion on a tightrope walk. And that's not even including the massage. At A Nu Touch Massage, Shelly's goal is to foster escape and relief. She does that with the aforementioned perks and her soothing massage treatments, which include Swedish/relaxation combination massages. Shelly is a certified massage therapist as well as a hairstylist, and so she facilitates inner and outer beauty from her cozy studio.
