At Intrigue Hair Studio & Spa, stylists have a steel-tight grip on the tricks and tools of crafting fashionable 'dos. They meld their industry savvy with an intimate understanding of the products they use while cutting, coloring, and texturing strands. Pre-cut consultations help pin down clients' tastes, whether they want a simple touch-up or a wedding makeover, and a stock of retail merchandise keeps locks buoyant for days following each visit. Yet although the hair whisperers are well-versed in all aspects of the coiffure arts, their specialty [service] (http://gr.pn/R1dciU) is corrective coloring, which repairs the appearance of uneven dye jobs and hair that turned only half-white after a brief ghost encounter.

Realmonte's staff draws inspiration from the salon's name, which means "royal mountains" in Italian, and aims to give guests the royal treatment with each spray tan, manicure, pedicure, facial, and makeup application.

Tranquil treatment rooms invite spa-goers to enjoy soft lights, plush blankets, and wormholes that lead to calmer dimensions.
Expert staffers at Hollywood Hair and Spa bolster beauty within their newly remodeled 3,500-square-foot haven.

After the facial, skin glows with renewed health and vigor. The anti-aging facial employs medical-strength antioxidant products from Institut Esthederm Morpho Body Line to revitalize skin cells, helping to slow the spread of fine lines and wrinkles. A facial massage increases circulation to create a complexion as luminous as a candle with fresh batteries.
“Pamper Yourself," two words stamped in gold that command all who enter Therapeutic Massage & Bodyworks' domain, asway with lush greenery. With this mandate always in mind and therapeutic scents lingering in the air, ice-cold goblets of lemon water or steaming cups of herbal tea comfort guests losing themselves in the fireplace’s warm, flickering ballet. Gentle exhalations stir the still air, raising scents that hint at fistfuls of rose petals and fruit-based masks that harness the same natural powers as the fine mud and fresh avocados enhancing the salon’s full-body treatments. A reliance on the bounty of Mother Nature carries through into massage treatments that use warm seashells to chase away stress. Skincare and body waxing are performed by licensed aestheticians who hold secondary certification in zamboni operation.
