Crush Salon and Spa's diverse services run the gamut from beauty to relaxation, including hot-stone massages, keratin straightening treatments, and a full-fledged spray-tan business. The staff cuts hair for women, men, and children, applies professional makeup, and rejuvenates complexions with deep-cleansing facials. In addition to these conventional salon services, Spray U Tan—located inside Crush—focuses exclusively on airbrush tanning, bronzing clients' bodies from head to toe, conjuring golden skin tones the way alchemists conjure excuses for why they seem to never actually turn anything into gold.
At La Petite Spa, talented, friendly aestheticians apply skill, experience, and premium products to the task of pampering patrons' hands and feet. In a shellac manicure and pedicure, digit decorators combine nail trimming, cuticle tidying, and "This Little Piggy"–playing with the application of CND-brand shellacs. The fast-drying talon tinter doesn't chip or smudge easily and can last up to two weeks, after which clients return to the spa so that staff members can gently remove the shellacs without damaging nails. In addition to their beautifying skills, La Petite Spa creates a convivial environment complete with genial staff members, complimentary cups of herbal tea, and a playful on-site dolphin.
The expert nail technicians at Pretty in Pink Studios nurture hands and feet with pampering and nail-painting services. Hands prepare for glamorous roof-raisings with colourful coats of Shellac’s soak-off gel polish. Each gel layer bathes briefly under the glow of ultraviolet light, hardening the polish and strengthening nails’ resolve to stop petting the cat backward. During the manicure, which lasts about 30–45 minutes, nail tenders shape nails, curb delinquent cuticles, and administer a soothing massage. Toes wiggle with renewed vigour after the spa’s 35- to 45-minute pedicure, during which technicians whittle toenails and tame cuticles, exfoliate heels, and reward treaders with a massage. A final polish makes feet as beautiful as the spa’s rotating selection of local art, which incorporates jewellery, paintings, knitted goods, stained glass, and mosaics of Achilles’ exfoliated heel made from chipped polish.
As an aesthetician, Natalie provides skincare and body-care services from inside her eponymous studio, Skin Care by Natalie, one of CityVoter's top day spas in Cleveland. Her deep-cleansing facials, glycolic peels, and soothing eye treatments keep complexions clear and healthy. Her specialities, however, are brow waxes and Brazilian waxes, which employ gentle Nufree wax to swiftly remove unwanted fuzz.
The trained stylists at Sass Hair Salon access a cache of lock-vivifying services to create custom looks. Those oppressed by unruly curly hair can subvert tress tyranny with a keratin straightening treatment. A coiffure captain will tackle frizzyness to the floor and smooth the hair into a less spring-like texture, allowing previously torque-addled strands of hair to release their tension. After the formaldehyde-free treatment, clients get complimentary shampoo and conditioner to take home and use to grease slip 'n' slides.
As a teenager, Lissa Bell developed vitiligo, a condition that causes depigmentation in the skin. As a result, Lissa decided to research and develop natural skincare products. Today at Lissa's Natural Skin Care, as a licensed esthetician, herbalist, and holistic-skincare therapist, she uses organic skincare products during custom facials, and skin resurfacing treatments to treat a myriad of skin issues.
