When it comes to beauty treatments, O'Leisure Hair Design does a little bit of everything. Licensed stylists here use AG Hair Products and perform chic haircuts and keratin smoothing treatments, and spa treatments such as hair removal, eyelash extensions, and nail services are also available. You can get even eyebrows with a threading session, too, or renew your skin and up your pH levels with an ultra-hydrating facial. There are private spa rooms for all waxing, massages, and facials.
Soft light pours into French Twist Salon, where brown pebbled-leather chairs, gilded mirrors, and exposed pipes lend an old-timey feel. But while the decor harks back to another era, the treatments and cache of hair products remain decidedly current. Owner Carole guides her team of stylists as they steal away frizz with Brazilian blowouts and glossing treatments or add color and dimension with highlights. Elsewhere in the salon, stylists perform waxing services and enhance features with makeup applications or three different kinds of eyelash extensions—day, night, or 24 hours of daylight. Carole doubles as a seasoned manicurist who delivers long-lasting shine with Shellac gel polish.
Between working, working up an appetite, and working out, it can be hard for a busy person to work on their skin. That’s why Girl on the Go! Night Spa stays open until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and until 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, offering beauty services that cater to the packed schedules of nine-to-fivers, students, and London Guards prone to acne. The unique, one-on-one appointment system ensures each client commands the entire spa to themselves, soaking in the peace and quiet as skin luxuriates in hydrating facials and antioxidant-rich body treatments. Despite its feminine moniker, the spa also tailors skin treatments and waxing sessions to suit the needs of guys on the go, and its reliance on organic products from Epicuren, Ilike Organic, Yonka, and Lucrece keeps services accessible to eco-conscious complexions.
Carved into the pale yellow walls, a lineup of mini archways crowns each crimson spa chair at 999 Nail and Skin Care, where clients lounge as nail technicians cleanse and beautify fingers and toes. Manicurists barber cuticles thoroughly before kneading away stress in tense palms and sixth fingers and slathering nails with a florid coat of OPI or CND polish. Performed with fully sanitized pedicure baths, the spa pedicure affords feet identical treatment, adding an additional exfoliating buff for heels sullied from their part-time job as a chimney sweep.
Krista of Hand 2 Sole draws on 17 years of experience in nailcare and reflexology, a therapeutic technique that involves applying pressure to specific points on the hands and feet. She strives to use organic products whenever possible in her treatments, which range from full nail extensions to express manicures that can get you in and out the door in less than a half hour. Most services also include an aromatherapy scrub and spritz using the customer’s choice of handcrafted scent.
