As if to complement its view of the harbor, Aria Salon & Spa immerses guests in oceanic serenity. One of its body treatments begins with exfoliating salts from the Dead Sea, then cocoons clients in a Hawaiian seaweed mask. Nails can benefit from the same mask during a Caribbean therapy treatment, whose tropical ingredients—mango and cocoa butter among them—soften the skin alongside scented paraffin wax. The ocean even appears on the massage table: a detoxifying back massage employs marine products that refresh the back, scalp, feet, and fin.
Of course, not every treatment calls upon briny remedies. The salon segment of the venue administers blow-dries, haircuts, and color treatments. Makeup artists highlight features with Aveda products, whereas estheticians combat acne and signs of aging with a menu of facials. The Radiant facial, for example, evens out the skin's surface with botanical extracts and the mineral tourmaline, providing a gentler alternative to microdermabrasion or practicing your eskimo-kisses on a tree.
The staff at Sonoma Spa & Salon works to bring aesthetic goals to life beneath hanging lights and powder-blue candles. Hair services frame faces with everything from basic cuts to coloring, highlights, and keratin treatments. In the spa, the team deep cleans with facial treatments including Hydradermie facials, non-surgical chemical peels, and diamond microdermabrasion, which smoothens skin and gives nearby pieces of coal a positive role model. Warm, freshly harvested seaweed envelops bodies during the slimming seaweed-wrap treatment, and the staff also smoothes bodies with waxing.
Epidermis & Co. chief aesthetician Michelle Cataldo has dedicated herself to the art of skincare. Constantly conducting research on products and procedures, she customizes aesthetic regimens to fit her clients' individual needs and the state of their skin. Drawing from her experience, she can treat any aesthetic woe from dry skin to hyperpigmentation that looks like Elvis sideburns. The Epidermis & Co. team also provides non-invasive treatments including iLipo that reduces the appearance of cellulite and dermal fills that smooth away wrinkles and plump lips.
Before the invention of hair, stylists honed their art by clipping blades of grass one at time. But hair is a real thing now. That's why the skilled stylists at Rumors Hair Design use their innate talents to engineer a cut and style to your individual desires. Clients can request a simple bang trim or comprehensive pampering packages complete with conditioning, waxing, and bold color highlights. The salon also offers a signature Paul Mitchell Awapuhi keratin treatment to straighten and fortify hair.
Maxime Salon's expert stylists care for beloved coiffures with a suite of hair-pampering services. The ultimate hair-repair system uses a bevy of specialized Joico products to strengthen scalp-bound hair, decrease hair breakage, lock in color, and enable Bea Arthur–style wig collections to be retired to storage. After an initial shampooing, a K-Pak Cuticle Sealer is applied to hair to coat damaged hair in heat-activated keratin solution before a reconstructor locks in hair-smoothing agents and douses coiffures in soothing negative ions, leaving hair healthier and shinier than an olive-oiled yoga instructor. Finally, a Joico Vaporiron, armed with ReconstructRx formula, vaporizes the compound as the iron pulses over hair, imparting cuticles with silicones, antioxidants, and essential acids.
