Twist Salon's mane mavens restore luster and hue to dulled 'dos with a Sebastian cellophane color gloss treatment (a $70 value). Once guests choose a shade from nine different translucent offerings, a seasoned staffer will baste hair with the ammonia- and peroxide-free gloss, bolstering cranium shine or temporarily altering hair tone without having to soak it in leftover Easter egg dye. This procedure also protects skull strands from salt water, chlorinated water, and the harsh heckling of the summer sun. Afterward, an expertly executed blowout wicks away loitering water beads and sets styles more effectively than gel or a staple gun.
Faces that visit Pure Rejuvenation Skin Care experience a host of therapeutic treatments, ranging from the balm of the Eclat Cocoon facial to the skin-rejuvenating power of a pumpkin chemical peel. Waxing, body scrubs, and microdermabrasion round out the spa's services.
Helping people let go of pain and stress is what drives Christian Maldonado’s massage practice. As clients relax atop a heated table, he pulls from modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger-point therapy to lull them into a relaxed, worry-free state. Christian also teaches clients how to perform these techniques on others during couples-massage classes.
At Sassy Salon & Spa, the staff transforms exteriors with styling products from brands such as Moroccanoil, TIGI, and Redken—as well as OPI polishes and Mirabella makeup. Stylists snip and style strands into flattering formations, while massage therapists spirit clients back to a moss-toned, private room for Swedish, deep-tissue, or sports massages. Hanging drum lights spill a warm glow over the gleaming hardwood floor as guests admire their increasingly beautiful reflections in the full-length, ornately framed mirrors. In the lobby, a stylish black-and-white armless chair sits in contrast against exposed brick walls.
Today’s side deal feeds protein-deficient hair a healthy dose of sheen: for $99, you get a Brazilian keratin smoothing consultation and treatment at Pacific Sun Salon in Chesapeake (up to a $300 value, based on length and hair texture). You must call ahead to schedule a consultation; after that, you will schedule your actual treatment time.
A Brazilian keratin smoothing treatment promises to leave your locks smooth, straight, and free of frizz for up to four months. During the course of your appointment, your hair will be doused with a protein- and nutrient-rich solution and dried before the strands are straightened and the serum is locked in through a professional flat-ironing. Unlike chemical relaxers that can damage delicate tresses, the keratin treatment strengthens your hair strands by pumping them up with a powerful protein, which leaves head threads straight and soft with unparalleled manageability and a light-reflecting luster. The treatment is safe for previously processed or chemically treated hair, and results typically last up to four months, making it ideal for those looking to make a splash this upcoming beach-movie season.
