The Salon's stylists clip and arrange hair with an expert eye while aestheticians rejuvenate clients' skin and perform a host of salon services. To keep skin clear and smooth, staff members use dermatologist-recommended Jane Iredale makeup and combat cellulite with FDA-approved VelaShape treatments. The Salon also hosts boudoir and retro-inspired pinup photo shoots, taking charge of lighting, makeup, and photography so ladies can indulge their glamorous side without having to time-travel into Lauren Bacall's dressing room.
Exposed brick, glowing chandeliers, and modern furnishings join together to create an inviting atmosphere comprising equal parts classic elegance and urban chic. This aesthetic duality mirrors Trend Designs Salon's blend of salon and spa services—a combination that allows patrons to move from full-foil color treatments to hot-stone massages in the course of one visit. Complexions weighed down by clogged pores or clinging pet starfish are rendered glowing during microdermabrasion treatments, facials, or glycolic peels with enzyme masks. Stylists transform manes with a roster of haircut and color services, and nail technicians can match fingers and toes to newly hued locks. Stone, deep-tissue, and Swedish massages encourage clients to close their eyes, relax, and mentally rearrange a friend's apartment.
About Face's well-rounded team of certified cosmetologists and aestheticians employ a lengthy list of services to pamper patrons from head to toe-knuckle hair. Lock smiths sculpt tresses into follicle topiaries during a professional haircut and style. A full makeup application uses oil-free Jane Iredale mineral products to help clients hide flaws without having to apply sticky fondant masks. After calculating the appropriate eyebrow arc length by multiplying the radius of the face by 2Π, wax-wielders can sculpt brow bristles into structurally sound eye frames.
Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, micro needling, and botox the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
Owner Denise Willinger brings more than three decades of aesthetic and massage experience to her spa and boutique, which was voted Best Day Spa in 2012 and 2013 by city voters of the Louisville A List. Inside, gently lit swaths of coral cloak the walls to envelop visitors in a warm glow that matches post-facial complexions. Massage therapists, aestheticians, and microscopic yet highly trained pore spelunkers treat skin and nails to revivifying services. Special cellulite-busting treatments craft sleek silhouettes. CelluSleek creator Betty Harris hand selected just a few spas to debut her body-contouring system, and Serenity is on that exclusive list.
The long strokes of a therapeutic massage. A diamond-tipped wand that sloughs off depleted skin cells. Carefully targeted cosmetic injections that help ease the signs of aging. Often a person seeking all of these services would have to visit a chiropractor, salon, and med spa to achieve their goals, but the team of medical professionals and aestheticians at Splendid Skin Medspa cater to a wide range of needs in one relaxing, spa-like destination. A fleet of high-powered lasers penetrate the skin to rejuvenate faces, ease or eliminate hair growth, and destroy strip-mines hidden beneath the toenails, and massage services and B12 injections help to increase energy and health.
