Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salons' network keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Manage mane health with a deep-conditioning treatment, haircut, and blow-dry (starting at $40; prices vary by location) that infuse cuticles with currents of aqueous confidence before a stylist clips tresses into a head-hedge that beautifully complements scalp-garden pathways. A perm ($70+) adds a twist to locks normally on the straight-and-narrow, and follicle aficionados can spruce up dull strands with a hair coloring ($55+), highlights ($75+), or strategically placed tinsel.
Patrons relax on a bed in one of Bliss Therapeutic Massage's trio of private rooms as a certified stress-alleviator soothes tense muscles. The Swedish massage employs long, gliding movements, kneading and friction to release muscles from painful holding patterns, relieving tension and helping to improve range of motion. The massage maven's dexterous, deep-tissue probing targets bodily districts plagued by chronic discomfort and pain and can draw upon stretching and trigger-point techniques to supplement the traditional deep-tissue approach. The treatment typically focuses on creaky necks, achy lower backs, stiff shoulders, and noses tense from repeated theft. The slow, deliberate motions of formidable fingertips penetrate deep into muscular strata, helping to assuage entrenched pain lingering from old football injuries or recent backgammon mishaps.
