Unless you're an identical twin or really good with papier-mâché, your face is unlike that of anyone else. That's why Touch Nails Girl always tailors its facials to the unique tone, texture, and T-zone of each individual. But that's just a strand in the salon's ample coif. Clients also can solicit an aesthetician for a full-body scrub or durable acrylic nails, or retreat to a private room for hot-stone bodywork compliments of the salon's skilled massage therapist.
The trained stylists and aestheticians at La Femme Beauty Salon & Spa primp and pamper their clients from head to toe with a full selection of hair and skin treatments. They deftly cut and color new 'dos, as well as wash and set wigs. Facials and massages leave complexions and muscles reenergized and relaxed, and laser hair-removal and waxing services banish unwanted body hair better than a razor or cheese grater. Their IPL laser blasts away at nail fungus, erasing the brittle, discolored evidence of this cruel sock invader.
Obina Escort understands firsthand how important it is for skin to look great—she spent years as trade-show model and a professional hostess for entertainment-industry events. Over time, she developed a strong interest in skincare and eventually became a beauty-product advisor for retailers, including Sephora and Nordstrom. She later earned her aesthetics certification from an Aveda Institute and now performs facials at Posh Nails BK. Here, after showing clients where their faces are, she uses products harvested from plant extracts and essential oils in facials designed for varying skin types. Because of her devotion to skincare, she also designs at-home regimens for clients who want to maintain their refreshed look.
Opened by a nurse whose skincare challenges inspired her to craft her own line of products, N-Diya uses naturally derived skin solutions to treat a spectrum of complexion-based complaints. Each of the spa's four facials begins by propping open pores with steam before sending a freshly mixed fruit mask to excavate impurities and nourish hungry cells and the literal monkeys some clients can’t get off their backs. The papaya-mango treatment forks out antioxidants as well as vitamins A, C, and E to exfoliate and brighten skin, and the avocado-and-yogurt facial plants botanical extracts and lactic acids to eclipse sun damage and soften age spots. During the aromatherapy massage, body butters fuel the execution of the Swedish technique, whose long, kneading motions and medium pressure quicken circulation slowed down by overcautious vascular speed limits.
Chronic bouts of irregularity caused Dilcia A. DeMorel to grow concerned about her internal health, turning to colonics as a way of cleansing the toxins she knew were camping out in her disobedient bowels. A convert to this drug-free therapy, Ms. DeMorel opened Hosanna Colon Hygiene Care Inc. to share its restorative benefits with others. To further detoxify the body, she works to rid tissues of heavy metals through ionic footbaths and to rid the ear canals of runaway Madame Tussauds figures through ear candling.
Following in her father’s footsteps, Talmie L. de Shimadai entered medicine to help purge bodies of potentially harmful toxins. The licensed massage therapist and colon hydrotherapist treats patients with collaborates to craft customized treatment programs for patents while educating on improved health through positive dietary and lifestyle choices. The center’s non-invasive treatments purge potential toxins from the body, cleaning the gastrointestinal tract and help treat conditions such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, and constipation.
Soft music, scarlet blossoms, and sparkling chandeliers greet clients as they step through the doors of Aimee Hair Salon and Day Spa’s glass storefront. At comfortable barbering stations with ornate framed mirrors, stylists craft classic or contemporary haircuts, steeping tresses in dye or twisting locks into trendy bee condos. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians spruce up skin with facial treatments and laser-hair removal sessions, and massage therapists knead sinews. Rounding out the menu of services, nail technicians shellac the tips of fingers and toes and skincare professionals wax or thread away unwanted hair. Exposed brick walls surround the salon and its spa quarters, invoking a loft-like environment.
