To Constantina Hahn, hospitality is as important as the luxurious treatments and pristine facilities that won her studio a day spa Silver award from the Beaver County Times. Inside the homey spa, clients are greeted with complimentary coffee or tea and then led past rows of antique framed mirrors that reflect hairstylists and customers chatting like old friends. To make heads feel well-cared for, organic hair-coloring products––certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA-customize hues, and Brazilian blowouts form a smoothing sheath around strands fried by chemical treatments or jealous short order cooks. Dermalogica skincare products also cater to individual needs and concerns as they are blended into tailored, age-defying treatments, and nail, waxing, massage, and tanning services ensure no limb, hair, tendon, or talon is left untended.
The bronzing professionals at Copper Zone Tanning deepen skin tones with a bevy of brand-new tanning beds and AutoBronzer spray tanning. For one credit, guests can stretch out on an ETS tanning bed equipped with three intensities to adjust skin hues without steeping oneself in a can of baked beans. Or for two credits, bronze the body with the alcohol-free AutoBronzer spray-tanning system; clear vocal instruction leads guests through a UV-free experience that couples three misting levels with an even spritzing customized to various body sizes.
At the helm of her self-named salon, stylist Lori Anderson and her staff regularly attend training seminars throughout the year to learn trendy styles and techniques. They bring their skills back to Lori L's Salon, where a modern, yet cozy and friendly environment welcomes patrons seeking haircuts, highlights, nail care, and waxing. They work to personalize each service to best fit the client’s needs and envisioned results.
This salon’s name doesn’t refer to its staffers’ temperaments but rather to the looks they give the clients who walk through its doors. A team of five stylists tends to the mops of the entire clan, be it kids, parents, or an actual mop that sneaks its way into every family portrait. Beyond basic cuts and full or partial highlights, they also offer several of the latest frizz-taming treatments, including those by Brazilian Blowout and Pravana Perfection. To keep clients looking chic at home, a retail area is stocked with products by Scruples, Aquage, Tressa, and Kenra, allowing clients to snatch their favorites on the way out.
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, or hot-towel shave, 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.
The team at La Chica Salon and Spa aims to make every client feel like a member of their family, which is why they maintain an easygoing atmosphere and care more about individual beauty than cookie-cutter trends. But that's not to say that their fingers aren't on the pulse of modern technologies—in addition to offering up-do-date cuts and color services, La Chica's stylists wield All-Nutrient keratin, a formaldehyde-free solution that straightens and smoothes strands. Nail techs beautify fingers with manicures, gel, and nail art and pamper feet with a spa pedicure that includes a scrub, a mask, hot towels, and a soothing massage.La Chica’s massage therapist, Tracey, treats bodies to her therapeutic touch in Swedish-relaxation, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massages that spelunk into muscles and roust out knots. Clients’ energy and bodily meridians align after 30-minute reiki healing sessions, or reflexology sessions manipulate pressure points on the feet to treat the full body.
