At Aspire Medical and Day Spa, medical aesthetics and skincare work in tandem to erase signs of aging. The staff, overseen by Dr. Nicole Reid, smoothes wrinkles with Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Belotero, and streamlines morning routines with permanent makeup. The aestheticians also rejuvenate your look with facials that range from a quick lunchtime pick-me-up to the Ultimate Facial, which combines cleansing, exfoliation, and microdermabrasion with an upper-body massage. Their arsenal of skincare products and custom facials helps clients stay beautiful at home with high-quality brands such as Dermalogica.
Beauty specialists prettify patrons with hair and nail services within the sage-green walls of Take One Hair Studio. To smooth unruly tresses, savvy stylists slather hair in up to 4 ounces of Keratin Complex solution, whose powerful proteins wrestle unmanageable strands into submission in around 2.5 hours. The treatment leaves locks as smooth and silky as a Swiss-chocolate bust of Frank Sinatra for three to five months, and clients also take home travel-size bottles of keratin shampoo and conditioner to help maintain their new look. Alternatively, nail techs can cover finger shields in a coat of glittering gel polish that can last up to 21 days without chipping, fading, or eloping with a comely set of acrylics. Then, they’ll brush basic polish onto toenails, completing both treatments in about 90 minutes.
It?s all in the name at Create A New Body Spa, where a friendly staff helps both men and women acquire the physique of their dreams with the two-part Madame Et Monsieur program. Technicians hook clients up to the Electro-Slim machine for one hour, initiating a flow of electricity that contracts muscles, breaks down body fat, and teaches hands to finally clap on beat. Coupled with a healthful-eating plan, the machine can help everyone from athletes to the elderly shed weight, reduce blood pressure, and alleviate muscle pain. The salon accelerates weight loss with the infrared Fit Bodywrap, which induces sweating to detoxify the body and smooth out cellulite. Newly svelte clients can make their way to the spray-tanning room for a custom, antioxidant-packed Norvell airbrush tan that lasts up to seven days.
It’s not every stylist that can select hues that complement clients’ skin tone—but as a color specialist, stylist Stacey Bennett demonstrates this ability daily. The Paul Mitchell School graduate operates within the walls of By Shear Design, where she uses Paul Mitchell products to perform precision cuts and add vibrant dimension with highlights.
Stylist Amy Ritchie has spent two decades in the beauty industry, with 18 of those years seeing her firmly situated at the helm of her own salon. Inside the family-oriented Expressions Hair & Nail Salon, the color specialist keeps heads healthy and shiny, adding face-framing layers or dimensional highlights with color from Scruples True Integrity. Expressions also offers manicures, pedicures, and waxing to keep the whole body looking well-pruned, and massage services can be booked to help clients achieve that well-rested, fresh-from-the-taffy-pull look.
To create a tranquil, relaxing experience, The Spa of Cool Springs incorporates elements of nature into both its treatments and its decor. Guests walking into the reception area are greeted by comfortable brown leather armchairs and a substantial marble-and-stone desk. In the treatment rooms, deep-green walls and botanically inspired prints bring the outdoors in. Therapists perform a variety of massage modalities within their dimly lit hallows, using earthy tools such as warm river rocks and brown-sugar scrubs. During skincare treatments, the fragrant and sustainably farmed ingredients in Éminence Organic Skin Care products soothe weary skin. Aestheticians promote a balanced complexion with probiotics and tea-tree oil, or employ a citrusy, herbal formula to target men's ingrown hairs or stubborn Muscle Milk mustaches.
