Despite its name, Fingers Salon & Spa isn't all about hands and nails. Manicures, pedicures, and soothing paraffin dips are certainly among the spa's most popular treatments, but they never threaten to overshadow the full list of hair services. That's largely because the stylists are so talented at what they do, whether it involves cutting and highlighting hair or counting individual strands to make sure they're all accounted for. Other services on the spa's extensive menu include cleansing facials, massages, and hair removal.
Although the stylists at Vibe Hair Studio specialize in color services—such as dimensional color, color blocking, and highlighting—longtime clients love the salon's luxurious shampoo station. The lather lounge feels more like a spa thanks to essential oils, soothing music, and gently flickering candles, not to mention the relaxing hot-towel scalp massage included with each wash. At the studio's interactive color bar, owner, stylist, and Paul Mitchell educator Linda Lipka and her team helps patrons create their own personalized palette from a vibrant assortment of Paul Mitchell products.
The staff stays ahead of industry trends with continuing education, and also offers custom cuts for men and women, extensions, and formal updos. Sleek black styling chairs and a black wall with white polka dots create a hip, modern ambiance, as do the light fixtures, which resemble upside-down bouquets of orbs similar to those nervously presented by robots on a first date.
Years of searching for painless and effective hair-removal technology led Dr. Granowicz to the Aesthera PPx system. At Medical Laser Aesthetics, PLLC, he and his staff prevent hair from slowly taking over bodies by using Aesthera’s noninvasive, wand-like device to flash low levels of intense pulsed light on treatment areas, causing camera-shy hairs to flee the scene. During the hair-removal process, the Aesthera PPx system soothes skin with a mist of pure water, rather than relying on aesthetic lotions or anesthetic creams. Other than whisking away unneeded bodily fleece, the center’s technicians also use the powerful device to rejuvenate damaged skin, treat acne, and chime in at Pink Floyd laser-light shows. Regardless of the aesthetic need, the practitioners at Medical Laser Aesthetics work with clients to create personalized treatment plans.
At Ferndale Relaxation Spa, massage therapists employ a holistic approach twice over, soothing the entire body with techniques from around the world. Beyond the traditional Western modalities, such as Swedish and hot stone, the indian head and neck massage calls upon ayurvedic-healing principles, and Chinese reflexology methods aim to boost the immune system during foot massages. Amid a bubbling fountain and soft music, the spa promotes relaxation with optional experiences such as rose petals scattered in candlelight or side-by-side massages for couples or presidential running mates.
When head stylist Tameshia "Me Me" McConnell founded Lillie D'or Salon and Spa in July 2012, she brought more than 15 years of experience along with her shears and combs. Beyond haircuts, the salon's services span from relaxers, extensions, and highlights to facials, massages, and makeup applications. Clients can relax in the cozy waiting area outfitted with sleek, contemporary furniture.
