Alba Salon's commitment to client satisfaction shows in the training and guiding philosophies of its skilled stylists, aestheticians, and manicurists, who all strive for perfection in their services. Nail technician Trang Tran follows these principles and works to ensure that each guest leaves with impeccably polished fingers and radiantly glowing pinky toes. Sessions conclude only when patrons—whether being tended to by Trang or receiving a stylish haircut or pampering facial—are satisfied. Staffers extend the courtesy by imparting tips on keeping hair, nails, or temporary “you're gorgeous” tattoos maintained between appointments.
The stylists at Alba Salon & Spa talk clients through every step of the haircare process, from an initial consultation to the cut itself to tips for successful at-home styling. This devotion to clients extends throughout the whole staff at the salon and spa. Aside from traditional services such as color treatments, body wraps, and massages, the staff members will also consult with clients on services that, like Wagner’s Ring Cycle to a prom DJ, aren’t included in their standard lineup. These services could range from offbeat color choices and application techniques to unusual event hairstyling, limited only by the client and stylist's collective imagination.
At Go Bare! a team of veteran aestheticians elevate their range of traditional spa and waxing services with a carefully curated collection of skincare products made both locally and around the globe. Their Belgian waxes are triple-filtered and infused with zinc and titanium dioxide to minimize redness after hair-removal sessions. For skin nourishment, aestheticians use a physician-developed line of epidermal elixirs hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, where they're made with vitamins and antioxidants. Locally made creams, meanwhile, boast 100% organic blends of mint and chocolate, or vanilla and honey, and are painted across freshly waxed skinscapes to soothe the aches that follow follicular uprooting.
At The Woodhouse Day Spa, relaxation begins upon arrival in the spa's dedicated Quiet Room. Guests don fluffy robes and reflexology sandals as they sip mugs of loose-leaf tea and wait for their treatment to start. The spa's product selection reflects a similar attention to detail: the shelves are filled with natural, organic, and wild-crafted products. The spa goes the extra mile to include small extras with each session, such as home-care recommendations after facial treatments and foot-cleansing with each massage.
At Geni Waxing & Massage Center, every Brazilian-wax treatment is fittingly conducted with organic Spanish wax, which founder Geni Forton discovered while getting certified in body and facial aesthetics in Rio de Janeiro. Her staff has also mastered services beyond waxing, including European-style facials, microdermabrasion, massages, and body wraps.
