Amid their salon’s abundant lights and expansive mirrors, the stylists at Hair Creations rejuvenate hairstyles and beautify bodies. Joico products accentuate cuts, styles, colorings, and other hair treatments; waxing services eliminate unwanted fuzz on all areas of the body; and natural-looking gel nails and long-lasting Shellac polish help nails regain their splendor after long nights spent clawing into bank vaults.
Berthas European Spa is a warm, inviting oasis filled with skilled aestheticians who revitalize bodies with a variety of spa services. During the 75-minute foot-pampering session, guests settle into a sleek, modern pedicure station accented with lush pillows. A skilled technician treats tough feet to a soothing soak before filing unruly nails into shape and tending to clamorous cuticles. Nail specialists then give soles a sea-salt scrub with chocolate, pomegranate, or mint aromas, which have been proven to be the most effective scents for tempting away unwanted debris and dermaflaws. Finally, a foot-and-leg massage soothes achy muscles, a moisturizing foot mask hydrates thirsty feet, and nails get a fresh coat of paint. The 45-minute chocolate spa manicure closely mimics the pedicure procedure, rounding out distressed fingers and nails while moisturizing the hands that feed you with a cocoa-based phalange mask.
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
After gliding over glistening wooden floors supporting chic, modern fixtures, licensed aesthetician Najia Rohlf and her team greet guests in need of custom skin revitalization. In the first phase of the 60-minute European facial, a staff member cleanses pores and dusts off skin detritus. Extraction follows exfoliation, and then the aesthetician sheathes skin with a mask designed to ward off cheek-pinching aunts. Finally, a moisturizer restores suppleness and vanishes croissant flakes holding on since breakfast. Following treatments, clients can admire their newly radiant visages in nearby storefront windows and crossing guards' suits of armor.
John Hesmadt started Theraquest 10 years ago at the urging of his sister, who saw it as a way for him to help family members in need. John experienced a lot of joy and satisfaction through his work with relatives, and eventually decided he wanted to provide the same for other families. Today, he performs a suite of services focused on relieving pain and helping restore range of motion. To help athletes recover from injury, he uses kinesio-tape to hold malfunctioning muscles in place, speeding the healing process so that clients can get back in the gym, on the field, or into their old mascot uniform. For everyday folks, he often combines deep tissue massage and muscle pain therapy to soothe the aches of strains and tension. His favorite service to perform, though, is a sports massage. "I love [it] because it brings relief to my clients from their aches and pains and can restore smooth and flexible body movement," he says.
