Exposed wooden beams. Flickering candles. Stone Buddha statues. Iuventus Spa resembles a temple, and that's just what owner Sandra Woodring envisioned when designing the space; in fact, she considers her spa a temple for those in search of beauty and healing. Her treatments range from traditional hot-stone massages and European facials to chocolate body wraps and citrus body scrubs. The healing element comes in with cleansing detox programs and high-frequency treatments, which break down the electromagnetic forces that cause sickness.
Upstairs from the bustling hair studio and spa, The Wine Bar at Solaire offers a quiet respite amid lush curtains and soft lighting. Beneath the undulating panels of the ceiling at the center of the dining room, bistro-inspired plates fill the air with the aromas of pan-seared scallops and fresh pasta.
The staff at Lucia's...the salon on main is tasked with carrying out an ambitious mission: "To provide an experience, not just a service." And so, when clients sink into styling chairs, close their eyes in front of a makeup artist, or pose in front of a spray-tan nozzle, they can relax in the salon's peaceful environment, confident in the staff's skills.
As its name implies, Salon 180 isn’t known for playing by the book. From its funky decor—a mélange of vintage accents and asymmetrical shapes—to a staff that prides itself on relentlessly pursuing continuing education, the full-service salon finds plenty of ways to subvert and exceed first-time customers’ expectations.
Though they have years of experience cutting and styling hair, the salon’s team of stylists claims particular expertise in chemical treatments such as corrective color procedures and highlights. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists ease tension with full-body Swedish techniques or targeted sessions that narrow their focus to sore pitching arms or stiff vestigial tails. Just as the stylists and therapists draw on professional products to enhance their treatments, the spa’s skin and body specialists use advanced toners and technologies such as radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen production and clear skin of blemishes.
