Shandora's staff of beauty mavens use their pampering prowess to exfoliate, polish, and massage skin jumpsuits against the backdrop of a soothing, secluded spa getaway. The manicure sculpts and shapes tips before fortifying finger helmets with Shellac nail polish, its quick-drying shine primed to retain sparkle for roughly 14 days. They'll then treat feet tired from two-stepping neighborhood sinkholes with the stone pedicure, during which clients can sip a complimentary glass of wine as hot towels and hot stones relieve tension and a sugar exfoliate flushes dead skin from paws' pores. Alternately, Shandora's massage therapists glide, knead, tap, and shake muscles in the Swedish massage, which helps to whisk away stress and muscle tension. Or preen your cheeks with the one-hour facial, during which Shandora specialists will use all-natural Pevonia Botanica products to deep-clean and exfoliate stressed skin and then conduct enzyme peel to cast out rogue toxins, blackheads, and black holes.
The follicle fanatics at Pro-Cuts treat every client they encounter to adept, speedy styling. Unruly tendrils metamorphose into well-tamed hair sculptures in styles that range from old-school classics to contemporary interpretations of industrial smokestacks, and products from Paul Mitchell, American Crew, and Matrix Biolage assist the professional choppers in crafting and cementing each coif. From start to finish, the service takes about 20 minutes (depending on hair length), giving clients the remainder of the afternoon to weave cuttings into doll wigs.
Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, gents there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Patrons sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, complete with a cleansing and towels warmed by hugs from bald eagles. The stylists and barbers only enlist professional products from brands such as American Crew and Aveda for Men, which are tailored to male hair and emanate fragrances like a bouquet from a Camaro.
