From the beige walls of Indulge Salon & Day Spa, framed pictures of Hollywood icons Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn watch over salon chairs as licensed beauty professionals make visitors feel like celebrities. Owner Wendy Zahradka and Manager Debbie McCotter lead a hospitable team that overhauls outer appearances with haircuts, perms, and coloring services for both men and women. They even keep facial hair tidy with hot lather shaves, perform relaxing massages, and create custom facials that remove dirt from pores, exfoliate skin, and erase fingerprints from when the Tooth Fairy investigates your mouth when you sleep.
The aestheticians at Skin Secrets Med Spa refresh and beautify façades with a repertoire of skin-smoothing services. Before treating mugs to treatments such as microdermabrasion, cosmetic injections, or chemical peels, they consult with clients to understand their expectations and dermal needs.
The Boulevard Salon & Spa deploys experienced stylists to deftly slice hairs from men's chins, cheeks, and heads. Guests recline in barber chairs while pre-shave oil and hot lather swaddle mugs in toasty foam, giving visages a glimpse into the brief life of a cappuccino. A keen-edged straight razor slides along the face to efficiently remove stubble. In the Executive shave, the razor doubles back for a second voyage against the grain, smoothing skin with a thoroughness comparable to double Zamboni treatments for ice rinks or double vacuumings of molting tropical birds. Frosty aftershave and an ice-cold towel seal pores and soothe sensitive dimples, and a face massage dissipates tension from overworked, skeptical eyebrows. Alternately, patrons can opt for a haircut and single shave that foregoes the razor's return visit. A consultation ensures that head bristles will be cropped to specifications using Kenra and L'Oreal professional products, and a hot towel—aided by a head-and-neck massage—steams shoulders into a relaxed slump.
This Aveda salon is supervised by Dawn Caldwell and Kristy Heron, who have more than three decades of salon- and spa-industry experience between them. Dawn specializes in hair color, much like a chameleon perched on a Sasquatch's shoulder, and Kristy is a massage therapist, who also wields a master’s in acupuncture to free up disruptive energy blockages. The duo teams up with a staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, and stylists to treat guests to facials, acupuncture, massages, and salon treatments.
Like a trail of breadcrumbs in a dense forest, organic spa treatments guide guests to beauty and graceful, healthy aging at Vita Revive's European-inspired retreat. An expert team, including clinical aestheticians, a certified nutritional consultant, and a master reiki practitioner, reflects Vita Revive’s hybrid identity as both a wellness center and a spa. Together, these professionals blend Eastern and Western approaches, soothing stress with the ancient kneading of massage and targeted pressure of reflexology while fighting fine lines and wrinkles with modern facial treatments that rely on glycolic acid, pressurized oxygen, and microcurrents. Advanced technology fuels the spa’s infrared sauna and infrared body wraps, whereas old-fashioned water works its timeless wonders during a Vichy shower, whose high-pressure jets create a rain massage so that clients don't have to squeeze into their dishwasher for a full cycle.
As its name implies, the spa and wellness center incorporates USDA-approved organic ingredients into its treatments, crafting body wraps with seaweed algae extracts, moor mud, and Mediterranean wine and honey. The space itself also pays homage to the natural world with the earthy beige tones and bamboo flooring that outfit seven private treatment rooms.
Many different cultures and ethnicities contribute to the tapestry that is America, each with its own traditions and customs. At Eden Salon, stylists embrace all hair types no matter the ethnic background. They specialize in hair services that cater to a wide array of hair textures and types, like curly, kinky or super fine. They can create a natural look, press hair to straight and soft, or add extensions to existing tresses.
