The expert hair handlers at Stylin' Station Salon cleanse, condition, sculpt, and color locks to design updated 'dos within a historic, century-old building. Stylists illuminate mops with a single-process, all-over color, employing Matrix, Iso, and L'Anza products to bring out a blonde's inner brunette or a brunette's inner Twister mat. Then, a heated ultra-moisturizing deep conditioner whips lazy locks back into shape as stylists massage it into the scalp, helping manes become stronger, thicker, and shinier. While coifs are conditioning, skinscapers wax and shape eyebrows to prepare them for new face-framing fringe. Tress tamers then rinse and clip manes into classic cuts, modern styles, or uninhabited beehives.
Certified kneading extraordinaire Tom Collins of New Dimensions dims the lights, infuses the air with relaxing music, and unties knots of tension with therapeutic massage techniques. Customers can hop on the gently heated, articulated table for a Swedish massage, which smothers the body in essential oils and banishes general aches and pains through long rolling strokes and percussive interpretations of classic rock ballads. Bodies with specific injuries or pains bask in the orthopedic massage, which addresses target areas to help promote natural self-healing. Using orthopedic stretches and resisted lengthening techniques, the orthopedic massage aims to release contracted muscles, decreasing recovery time after arm-wrestling the inner rods of a cotton-candy maker. For $10, customers may upgrade to cold-laser therapy or a medicupping treatment, which harnesses the vacuuming power of plastic cups for a variety of therapeutic purposes.
