With more than two decades of experience in the entertainment, fashion, and bridal industries, Gilda specializes in making her clients look and feel beautiful. Whether she is giving a European-style precision haircut, applying camouflage makeup, or administering laser skin-tightening or hair-removal treatments, her focus is always on her clients.
In order to continually improve her craft, Gilda attends international trainings taught by elite beauty educators, and keeps her eyes peeled for cutting-edge beauty trends. Before appointments, Gilda and her staff meet with clients to discuss their aesthetic aspirations and facial features before collaborating on a plan of attack, whether it be a new hair color, makeup application, or texture alteration, such as Japanese straightening or permanent waves. Waxing, threading and laser skin treatments round out the menu of salon services, which clients can enjoy while sipping complimentary mugs of coffee or glasses of wine. For those who cannot make it into the salon, Gilda still makes house calls to beautify brides-to-be and partygoers.
At City Massage & Bodywork, nationally certified massage therapists help clients unwind physically and mentally with massage techniques including soothing Swedish strokes, deep tissue?s targeted kneads, and the simmering stress relief of hot-stone therapy. Massage upgrades such as aromatherapy and sauna sessions extend relaxation to other senses and sensations. The spa takes care to only book a few clients for each therapist each day, ensuring they don?t deplete their own energy reserves or run out of nicknames for each person?s individual muscles.
VM Body and Health goes a step further than most massage centers: its staff offer eight massage classes dedicated to teaching the finer points of specific modalities. But clients can still receive their choice of 10 available styles from both the East and West, reflecting founder Juan Carlos Villanueva’s passion for traditional Chinese medicine. His interest has taken him throughout Asia to study the continent's indigenous bodywork concepts, resulting not only in Asian massage options at his center but also acupressure and reflexology classes that introduce students to the basics of performing each modality. In addition to massage, staff members host classes and lectures on various aspects of whole-body health, including yoga, nutrition, and the hokey pokey.

Conveniently located in Tysons Corner Center Mall, Modern Nail Studio has everything the modern nail needs.

Translucent curtains fall gently from the ceiling, dispersing the pendant lighting throughout the cozy boutique.
