The artists at Dazzlin' Dezignz Salon & Spa are used to working on small canvases. They expertly decorate clients' nails with peacock prints, neon art-deco designs, and replicas of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. A crackling fireplace provides all the background music needed for a relaxing pedicure, held in one of the spa?s private rooms. In other rooms, clients relax during massages and hair-extension applications.
The multitalented team at Brodhead Spa performs treatments that are as relaxing as the fuss-free environment they're performed in. Guests cradle a warm mug of flavored coffee or specialty tea in the Paul Mitchell salon area as they watch a stylist mix custom hues at the color bar. As they relax back for a shampoo, awapuhi treatment, patrons can rest their eyes or fix them on a globe-like chandelier bursting with designs that resemble snowflakes or the permanent sparkle emanating from an anchorman's smile.
In the adjacent nail room, cream-colored pedicure chairs pop against a deep blue accent wall, setting a tranquil mood as feet are nourished with ingredients such as fragrant Moroccan rose oil or skin-softening cocoa butter. Plush white robes await guests retreating to private treatments rooms where male and female therapists are available to provide Swedish or hot-stone massages.
At All Zen and Fitness Studio, students never hear the whir of treadmills, the clang of heavy weights, or the grunting of local strongmen. Instead, they monitor the sound of their own breath and heartbeats, easing into stretches beneath gauzy, wine-colored drapes. The calming venue eschews the noise of traditional gyms for serene exercise disciplines, such as yoga, Pilates, and qi gong—a Chinese art of movement and meditation. The instructors also lead belly-dance classes for teens and adults, training tummies to make come-hither undulations that dazzle onlookers and send snakes into jealous rages.
Though Terzetto Hair's name, which was created using an Italian word that means "a trio or group of three," carries many symbolic connotations, it also calls to mind the rule of three, which is often used in writing, design, and comedy to evoke a sense of completion or balance. That's precisely how the team of stylists hope clients feel as they leave the salon: thoroughly polished. This refined aesthetic also imbues the salon's decor, which features Corinthian-columned pedestals, rustic tiles, marble countertops, and cheery yellow walls.
