Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's prettifying professionals cosset hard-working countenances within the sage and chocolate trappings of their newly opened second location. The visage invigoration begins with a pore cleansing to gently wash away accumulated dirt and ink from squid-diaper-changing mishaps. Next, a face-saving aesthetician blends a tailor-made cream concoction, designed to optimally balance and nourish skin based on skin type. The staff recommends this facial as a perfect first date with skincare for spa newbies, and Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's wrought-iron chandeliers and ballad-singing candles set a romantic atmosphere for adoring newly radiant skin.
A cozy salon in the heart of Madison, Norma’s Hair Styling caters to all things beauty related with space for haircuts, mani-pedis, and waxing. Men, women, and children can settle into one of the salon’s six styling chairs for a chic haircut, deep-conditioning treatment, or foil highlights sponsored by John Amico Italian hair color. Overgrown cuticles and hangnails meet their demise in the mani-pedi corner, where skilled technicians buff and shape nails as meticulously as a ship captain buffs his glass eye every night. A layer of colorful OPI polish or chip-resistant gel—the latter of which lasts for up to two weeks without chipping—leaves nails glimmering and clients feeling confident enough to high-five themselves in public.
Raun's extensive staff of mane mavens bedecks headscapes with accentuating styles inside a chic, expansive studio. A noodle-nest re-invigoration begins when tress-tamers apply a single-process color to fading locks, bolstering folicles with the reinvented radiance of an LED light bulb. Then a partial highlight brightens mop-tops and adds extra accentuation to bring out natural beauty. Raun's boasts a broad roster of experienced colorists who lead patrons through customizing a color combination, much like a sherpa guiding a lost traveler through the intricacies of high-school chemistry
At The Pines Spa, certified aestheticians swathe guests in customized elixirs designed to draw out the body's natural luminescence. The intense-hydrating facial swaddles faces in a nourishing mask loaded with hydrating serums, ameliorating the skin damaging effects of high-noon showdowns and swimming pools filled with money. The rejuvenating facial presents a speedier treatment for less weathered visages. Skin savants exfoliate dull flesh and apply a rejuvenating treatment, resulting in a complexion as youthful and refreshing as a piglet-powered table fan. Alternatively, guests seeking customized cosseting can opt for the specialized facial. An able aesthetician will concoct a brew for treating each customer's unique facial terrain, drawing from The Pines Spa's cache of nourishing serums.
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.
