June Bug Skin Care’s skilled aesthetican Heidi Schulte soothes countenances with deep-clensing facials administered in a recently remodeled spa space. During each 60-minute session, Heidi whisks away dirt with exfoliating Image Skincare products. After hands massage away tension and stress from the neck and shoulders, June Bug’s revitalizing mask and nutrient-packed moisturzier lock in hydration and improve skin tone. Post-treatment, skin glows with an even texture, leaving a youthful exterior that's as smooth and moist as Mount Rushmore on a rainy day.
No head of hair is too wild or too far away to be tamed by the team at Tease Hair Studio. From inside this downtown Windsor salon, creative stylist Brittney imparts clients with the looks they desire. Her specialties are trendy haircuts and coloring treatments, which means she uses hair dye to color locks instead of dipping them in leftover quill ink. The staff can calm rebellious curls and style-dampening frizz with the Zerran RealLisse vegan hair-smoothing system, which shuns chemicals in favor of a wheat-, corn-, and oat-protein formula that leaves strands nourished and smoothed for 2?4 months. When not busy fashioning chic styles with serums from Moroccanoil and Enjoy or waxing away unwanted fringe from brows, backs, and bikini lines, stylists are often found catering to bridal parties of all sizes, and will even travel to beautify brides at home, at church, or from the back seat of a stretch blimp.
The expert team of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists at Athena Salon & Spa shares a common goal—to provide a relaxing escape from daily routine. To do this, they draw on a menu of spa and salon services that includes everything from haircuts to fruit-infused facial peels. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists rely on hot stones and deep-tissue techniques to melt soreness caused by stress or back flipping into an empty pool. The spa’s footbaths, at least, are filled with warm water and pulsating jets to soothe sore feet and prepare them for cuticle treatments. For special occasions, the beauty experts can combine services such as waxes and updos into packages for brides, grooms, and their miniature wedding-cake likenesses.
The cozy Capri Hair Studio feels right at home on Windsor Town Green. It?s the kind of place where the stylists know your name and your haircut preference after only a couple visits. Susan Kinsey is one of these stylists?she?ll likely start things off with a friendly conversation before showing you to a black leather chair and getting down to business. This may involve crafting a stylish haircut or smoothing out frizz with a keratin treatment.
A visit to Elements Skin Care & Massage Studio is as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the senses. In each of the spa?s spacious chambers, the stark geometry of dark wood furniture complements the flowing lines of a sheer curtain, a linen-draped massage table, or a single potted orchid. These aesthetic pleasures only serve to enhance the sensory decadence that the staff of skin specialists, massage therapists, and nail technicians grant their clients. A slate of 10 facials ?including a signature service that treats not only the face to a massage, but the feet, legs, back, and scalp as well?help stave off blemishes and fine lines with Bioelements products. In private massage rooms, therapists call on several modalities to ease tension with hot stones, firm pressure, or pregnancy-appropriate strokes, as reflexology foot treatments ease tension stemming from tight shoes or arguments between toes. Feet can also bask in the spa?s many pedicures, which go beyond standard nail-salon services to incorporate heated lava shells, warm neck wraps, and even complimentary martinis.
Leading Edge's Aveda-trained stylists shape and nourish hair during services propelled by plant-based, cruelty-free Aveda products crafted with environmentally sustainable practices. Before enriching tresses with these products, the stylists begin each service by kneading the scalp, neck, and shoulders to enliven the senses and jump-start circulation. Wielding shears, they snip split ends after treating hair with a strength-infusion formula designed to prevent breakage due to frequent combing or head banging under a ceiling fan. In addition to cuts and color treatments, staffers apply makeup and remove unwanted hair with Nufree Nudesse, a nonwax product composed of skin-softening, soy-based antimicrobrials.
