Creature comforts are half the fun at The Retreat Nails & Spa. Before services, guests can sip complimentary beverages and relax in a massage chair. Then, the relaxation begins. The spa's staff of nail techs pamper hands and feet with Shellac manicures and pedicures, and skincare experts do their part with refreshing facials. The Retreat also offers reflexology, which targets stress and imbalances in the body through the massaging of the feet, and waxes, which shape eyebrows and remove unwanted milk mustaches.
At Namaste Laser and Medspa, certified laser technicians Cristina M. Alvarez and Nicole Alvarez-Rincon can harness the power of condensed light to remove unwanted hair from nearly any area of the body. The staff also specializes in spider-vein removal and skin tightening, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Zebra-print chairs offset classic Doric columns topped with lights at Village La Salon, adding a fun element of funk to an upscale salon atmosphere. Inside, professional stylists shape hair into customized styles with a variety of services for men and women, which range from haircuts and highlights to permanent relaxers and conditioning treatments. They also perform a variety of other salon services, including mani-pedis, full-body massages, permanent makeup, and threading and waxing.
Uncle Funky's Daughter's curly specialists imbue coiled manes with a combination of in-depth curl analysis, frizz-eliminating cuts, and moisturizing conditioners. Sessions begin with an in-depth consultation, in which stylists meticulously analyze hair's natural curl pattern to identify the cut that will best work with each tendril. Stylists then lather up strands in an invigorating citrus-cleansing treatment that removes built-up residue and traces of self-doubt to create a clean surface for a deep-conditioner application, which layers strands in a creamy blend of rosemary and avocado to seal-in smoothness for a frizz-free 'do. Stylists then trim up curls, delicately restructuring curls before instructing patrons in the art of maintenance and moisture management at home.
