Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and Dermalogica bottles line the walls of Hair Central. They're pulled down by licensed barbers and cosmetologists who work with guests to create hairstyles that suit facial features. In addition to hair services, the staff also performs custom facials, as well as nail services with OPI polishes.
Within Exquisite Threading's spacious and modern surrounds, an experienced team of eyebrow shapers pays respect to the ancient depilatory artform of India and the Middle and Far East. Patrons seeking a refined look can recline in the studio's comfy chairs as expert weavers lasso their loitering hairs, expelling them at the root. A natural and chemical-free treatment, threading spares patrons much of the discomfort, swelling, and redness of waxing, and because it doesn't tug at skin, it can help prevent eyes from unraveling down to loose yarn. A second treatment after three–four weeks keeps disciplined forethreads in line and stubble-free for another three-quarters of a lunar cycle.
At MJ's Salon & Spa, seven beauty specialists serve up hair services and relaxing massages. Stylist and aesthetician Autumn dabbles in cuts and color as well as facials and waxing. Massage therapist Cherie, on the other hand, specializes in multiple massage modalities, including trigger point, Swedish, and deep tissue. Each specialist works independently, and clients can book their appointments online.
Although they’re greeted by the sound of snipping scissors and the sight of a light-yellow room filled with black leather stylists’ chairs, guests of Natural Image Salon and Day Spa can get much more than just a haircut. In addition to stylists who specialize in creative hair color and keep abreast of the latest trends—such as the feather hair extensions that secret agents use to blend in while spying from trees—Natural Image staffs aestheticians who perform a full range of spa treatments.
These experts dab skin with products made with natural ingredients, relying on botanical plant peels and Swedish body wraps that blend herbs, minerals, and sea clay. As well as pampering skin with Aveda facials and sea-salt-glow exfoliations, the aestheticians render it hairless during waxing sessions. Nail technicians add the final touch to appearances with gel manicures or layers of OPI polish.
Stylist Kayla Pavlak and her colleagues at Splash Hair Design & Spa hone their fashion sensibilities by attending education classes and beauty shows. The staff members channel their continued training with both techniques and visual artistry, breathing fresh life into every head of hair they touch. They begin each haircut with a consultation so clients can express their goals and image desires. Using clients' wishes as a blueprint, the stylists set about designing new dos, sculpting and styling every strand into a unified whole. They revive faded or gray hair with highlights as well, adding dashes of color to draw out youthful looks that could turn the slightest head jerk into a slow-motion commercial scene.
At Francesca's Nail Spa, guests are treated to warm conversation and complimentary glasses of wine within a welcoming, home-like space. Francesca also boasts more than 25 years of nailcare experience, so she can supplement these friendly overtures with expert manicures and pedicures. Using professional polishes from such brands as China Glaze and CND Shellac, she can paint on intricate nail designs, outfit fingernails with French tips, and pamper feet with scrubs and bright colors. Acrylic overlays and nail services for men and children round out Francesca's menu of services.
