Licensed massage therapist Susan Rose Kesti believes in the healing power of touch. At her studio, which is located inside NeverEndz Salon, she exercises that power during a handful of massage services that incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage techniques. The benefits of the firm and gentle strokes can include everything from reduced stress to increased circulation, which is particularly good if you own an underperforming news magazine.
Within a stone's throw of Bliss Salon, a large water tower sits like a sleeping giant on the horizon and reads in a welcoming scrawl, "Florence, Y'all." This is an appropriate preface for Bliss's homey hardwood floors, leather chairs, and grape-hued walls. Though friendly stylists keep things professional with Redken products and ongoing training, Bliss Salon is a casual place where folks can relax and be pampered for a few hours while completing jigsaw puzzles on their laps. Personal consultations are always complimentary, so finding out about waxing, updo services, or hair-color upgrades is a no-pressure affair.
Each appointment at CXC Salon & Spa is like a mini makeover. Stylists use Redken, Big Sexy, and Joico products to help them transform clients’ hair into fresh new dos. Technicians paint nails with bold hues in a special OPI gel polish that helps prevent chipping. Other visage-enhancing services include airbrush tans and permanent-makeup applications. Swedish and hot-stone massages work to relieve guests of stress and tight muscles.
Eden Salon & Spa specializes in hair, skin, and body services. Hairstylists offer cuts, coloring, and keratin treatments; then nail technicians take the baton and spruce up fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures complete with long-lasting Shellac polish. Also on hand are massage therapists who loosen muscles and spirits with Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Though its name might suggest otherwise, Miracle Eyebrows works its magic on more than just one body part. But when it comes to eyebrows, staffers use a 6,000 year-old method to remove stray hairs by deftly manipulating simple cotton thread across the skin. Aside from threading, the studio also offers body waxing and traditional Henna tattoos.
