A Touch of Class Day Spa's experienced staff, led by 15-year veteran aesthetician Melody Rosenberg, beautifies bodies from face to foot with sundry nail, skin, and hair services. Skincare products from Dermalogica and Dermaware moisturize and exfoliate visages during soothing facials, and Youngblood mineral cosmetic products can embellish nails with vivid polishes or be used to scrawl foreboding messages on bathroom mirrors. Aromatherapeutic spa pedicures delight olfactory senses while pampering phalanges, and LED skin therapy improves blemishes and reduces wrinkles with cell-specific wavelengths.
At Wind-N-Willow Specialty Shop & Spa is a modern-day apothecary where skilled hands blend herbs, salts, and oils to meet clients' skincare and relaxation needs. The healing haven's staff also takes a holistic approach to spa services including massages and ear candling. Each service begins with an aromatherapy foot soak to purify feet and toes and to signal to the body both that it can relax and that the room may have flooded. Clients in search of a luxurious detoxification experience can step into a sauna or ionic footbath under the direction of knowledgeable staff members. Skilled aestheticians also keep clients' skin clean and healthy with the help of natural, mineral-based skincare products by ERTH.
A plump Buddha statue stands guard near the entrance of Chakras Healing And Day Spa. Along with Persian rugs and earth-toned walls, he's part of the award-winning spa's decorative strategy meant to ease clients' minds. Client peace of mind is one of the highest priorities of Chakras' staff, which is composed entirely of veteran providers including the spa's manager, Jennifer, who has 12 years experience as a skincare specialist. Jennifer believes Chakras' exclusive use of high-end products and reliably comfortable ambiance are two chief factors that attract clientele. For example, while treatment rooms at some other spas have sterile, clinical-looking furnishings or are haunted by ghosts, Chakras' treatment rooms sport hardwood floors, ornate wall hangings and drapes, and soft lighting.
Within the calming confines of Lima Salon and Spa, Terri Tagami aims to make good on her practice's name by relaxing her clients with multiple massage modalities. She wields finesse in Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage, and can combine the soothing techniques to create fully custom treatments. Each session harnesses massage therapy's bevy of natural benefits, such as improved circulation, diminished pain, and increased range of motion. To bolster freshly kneaded musculature, Terri can also help patrons shed extra poundage with body wraps, which waft infrared heat to melt away cellulite, toxins, and swallowed ice sculptures.
The aestheticians at Enigma Spa beautify skin with any mechanical, natural, or chemical means available. Electrodes vanquish acne-causing bacteria, and galvanic ions, serums, and nutrients work together to firm and tone skin during facials. The crew coats entire bodies with natural ingredients, such as seaweed, honey, white sugar, and brewer’s yeast to slough off dead-skin cells and replenish moisture lost crying during rock ballads about a kitten factory closing down. In treatment rooms, eyelids hover relaxed at half-mast as massage therapists put training in Swedish or Russian deep-tissue massage to use.
It's hard to rival Marilyn Monroe's beauty, but Monroe Salon Spa's stylists and aestheticians can help make clients look like their most glamorous selves. Monroe's range of services includes specialty hair design—including extensions and retexturizing treatments—capable of totally remaking a client's everyday look. These heavy-duty beautifying skills are why TLC's A Makeover Story visited the salon to make over two friends before their 25th high-school reunion. The stylists also enhance ocular aesthetics through eyebrow waxing services. When they are not styling tresses in-studio, Monroe Salon Spa's team is tending to bridal parties and creating on-location wedding looks, such as up dos and side-swept buns.
