There are many factors that keep a face from looking its best, from wrinkles and sun damage to a perfectly aimed banana-cream pie. Luckily, the right series of facials, peels, and revitalizing treatments can restore skin to a healthy appearance. At Renew Day Spa, aestheticians treat their clients to custom facials, which can eliminate acne, tighten sagging skin, and summon youthful glows. For the advanced renew facial, the beauty experts customize a blend of enzymes, vitamins, retinols, and other components to close large pores and smooth wrinkles.
Massage therapists, on the other hand, knead sore muscles and cover key areas with hot stones. Elsewhere, techs cocoon clients in seaweed body wraps, which deliver vitamins, minerals, and restorative elements to the skin.
Melissa Narron, the co-owner of Botanicals Salon & Spa, never stops learning. After graduating with business and cosmetology degrees, the nine-year beauty veteran has obtained abundant hands-on experience. She has been a Redken color specialist since 2004, to say nothing of her credentials with California Smooth, Mirabella Beauty, CosMedix, and OPI—Melissa's a mani-pedi technician, too. With her training and practice as guidance, she and her team pamper and primp clients with a robust menu of services, including mud wraps, hot-stone massages, and mani-pedis as single treatments or components of luxurious spa packages.
Quaintly staffed by five certified nail technicians, Marvelous Nails preens fingers and toes with a suite of services. With three types of no-chip manicures, including CND Shellac, Harmony Gelish, and Axxium from OPI, techs color digits with formulas that dry instantly beneath a curing light and keep nails strong and chip-free. Other add-ons such as mineral-packed paraffin dips soften and moisturize hands, and dazzling designs embellish fingernails with arabesque designs or postmodern paintings of realistic fingernails.
The stylists and aestheticians at Botanicals Salon & Spa believe that even with all the high-tech serums, lotions, and hair products that exist in the world, nature is the best for hair and skin. The Aveda concept salon eschews harsh chemicals and uses all-natural Aveda products during hair cuts and colors, facials, waxing services, and mani-pedis. To further support nature and make dolphins high-five each other with joy, clients can bring in their empty Aveda product bottles and have them refilled.
At Judy Fann Nail Call at Charisma Salon, Judy Fann wields luxe products from brands such as CND and OPI to shape and primp clients’ digits. Bottles of polish line the walls at this private salon, complementing chic decorations such as pink chairs, leather seats, and a plush leather lounger shielded by bamboo.
Chana, a licensed nail technician and pedicurist, elevates dolling up fingers and toes into a kind of mission. For ladies who cannot find time to come into her salon, Chana takes her skills on the road, working her nail-beautifying magic in guests' homes or workplaces. She calms trepidatious brides by trundling her wares to wedding parties, in addition to visiting clients in hospitals, nursing homes, or retirement communities.
Meanwhile, back at Salon Nails, Chana enlists the help of products made from natural ingredients for her signature sessions. Along with cuticle trimming and nail buffing, she pampers appendages with an exfoliating scrub and warm paraffin baths. With the no-chip, no-smudge Shellac polish, she splashes nails with vivid color, and the OPI Acrylic System adds length and durability to weak nails. She also refigures eyebrows with razor shaping and enhances eye fringe with artificial lashes applied one at a time. To maintain results, customers can also purchase the natural From Me To U Essentials.
