The team members at Halo Nail Salon and Spa specialize in the art of pampering. During their relaxing spa pedicures, a sextet of aromatherapy products causes stress and tension to float away through the ventilation system. Likewise with massages, which range from soothing Swedish strokes to trigger-point therapy—a technique designed to relieve pain and oust toxins. Facials leave pores dewy and rejuvenated, and waxing treatments banish unwanted body hair from legs, bikini lines, and brows.
Honey and coconut, chocolate mint, and pumpkin—they could be a trio of ice-cream flavors, but at Oasis Therapy Massage & Bodywork, they’re facials that moisturize and imbue skin with antioxidants. The delectably scented facials are just the beginning of the center’s spa services. It also offers massages ranging from toxin-flushing Swedish therapy to hot-stone therapy, a treatment far more soothing than a cold-stone massage, also known as a hailstorm. The center further pampers with body wraps, including an infrared wrap that can encourage weight loss or an algae wrap that infuses skin with vitamin C.
Denise Quintana wanted her salon to honor her grandmother, her mother, and her daughter. Luckily, all three of them had the same name: Delfina. And so, Delfina Salon & Day Spa was born.
With products from brands such as American Crew, Pureology, and TIGI’s Bed Head, Quintana and her team revamp their clients’ locks with artful color, cuts, and texturizing treatments. Alternatively, they can craft intricate updos to glamorize special occasions or fit snugly into a favorite shower cap. The team also pampers clients with spa treatments that range from body scrubs to tension-easing massages.
Shades of aqua float among chandeliers, paintings, and mirrors full of smiling reflections at Michelle's Beautique and Salon. In the midst of the artful decor and tranquil color scheme, Michelle's hair, nail, and skin technicians each perform their specialties to accentuate clients' natural beauty. Results turn indelible during permanent-makeup services, in which a professional artist enhances features while helping clients shorten morning their routines and keep their composure during underwater dates.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The relaxation rooms situated in all three locations of Bella Skin Salon Boutique live up to their name. They melt away stress like butter in jet-engine exhaust with a steam room, a sauna, napping hammocks, and a mud bath. No time limit exists for the rooms, because the staff wants clients to feel at ease during their pampering services. The staff employs stone therapy, foot massages, reflexology, hypnotherapy, Swedish massages, and medical massages to address whatever issues each client faces.
