Grace Designs & Esthetics’ skincare professionals upgrade the health and look of skin with face and body treatments performed inside a newly renovated space adorned with modern accents. While the spa’s makeup artists expertly camouflage imperfections, aestheticians work to correct their underlying causes with facials that rehabilitate dry, aging, or smart-mouthing skin.
Judging from their natural ability to make small talk while cutting or coloring hair with precision, one might guess that The Beauty Bar’s hairstylists were actual bartenders in their former lives. That hypothesis is supported by the fact that guests are treated to complimentary mocktails upon arriving at the 2,100-square-foot salon. When they aren’t pouring shots of nourishing lotion and shampoo, the staff wax away unwanted body and facial hair, host spa parties, and prep brides-to-be for trips down the aisle. The salon’s nail technicians offer a full slate of natural nail treatments headlined by their signature ice-cream pedicure—a treat that includes a ME! Bath strawberry-ice-cream footbath, a marshmallow foot mask, and a maraschino cherry affixed to each toe.
The Vein Institute & MediSpa's board-certified physician, Dr. Raymond Little, leads an expert staff through the diagnosis and treatment of varicose and spider veins as well as signs of aging with modern laser therapy and injections. The team erases unwanted lines from legs with sclerotherapy, a process during which small injections demolish spider veins' vascular walls and redirect blood toward healthy veins. They also eliminate varicose veins in less than one hour by channeling energy through laser fibers into small punctures, leaving legs as soft and alluring as Fabio's footie pajamas. The Vein Institute & MediSpa's staff matches complexions to flawless gams by liberating them from wrinkles with injections of Botox or dermafillers.
Avenue Hair Styling and Day Spa's seasoned aestheticians beautify bodies with a range of noninvasive prettifying techniques from haircuts to body wraps. An expansive ocean mural presides over the scene as massages unfurl muscles, and clenched fists release their tension during a pampering manicure and a paraffin treatment that reduces lines, like a speedy ticket redeemer at an amusement park. As stylists snip locks in the wood-paneled salon, guests can bid adieu to leg fuzzies before an aerodynamics-promoting waxing. Avenue Hair Styling and Day Spa proudly throws its hair in the ring of the Locks of Love program, a nonprofit dedicated to matching donated tresses to disadvantaged children.
Nail tech Melody Williams beautifies nails with expertly administered manicures and pedicures. With an arsenal of brand-name products such as Tammy Taylor and OPI, she shapes nails, applies polishes, and exfoliates hands and feet before pampering treatment areas with massages. Along with Melody and her fellow nail pros, Salon Renew rounds out its team with stylists that administer haircuts, highlights, and coloring using top products from haircare manufacturers such as Redken and White Sands instead of smashed markers.
With more than 20 years of pampering under its salon-service belt, Blondie's bolsters fading finger façades with a bevy of buffing options. The 25-minute Shellac manicure helps protect nails from scratches and chips for up to two weeks, gifting hands a consequence-free window for putting on a jagged steel finger-puppet extravaganza. The digital indulgence starts with a routine comparable to a normal manicure, including shaping and a slathering of fresh polish, after which nails are dried one by one under a UV lamp. Roughly 10 minutes of heat treatment cures fingertips, readying them to hit the streets or perform mesmerizing feats of sign language.
