Fantasy Spa Beauty Lounge’s team beautifies clients with procedures that range from hair-smoothing keratin treatments to back facials. Staffers augment locks with colors and hair extensions, embellish digits with nail art, and revitalize faces with facials and chemical peels. In addition, makeup artists offer complimentary demos of the spa’s hypoallergenic products, teaching patrons how to select a lipstick that will not permanently bind their lips together. To maximize convenience, the spa’s stylists and technicians can conduct appointments in clients’ homes.
Walker's Apothecary owner and licensed aesthetician Shalea Walker and her team of mug mollycoddlers swathe skin in a proprietary line of products and services that have adorned various celebrity visages. A 60-minute spa manicure (a $25 value) and pedicure (a $50 value) clips and files nails into chic alignment before coating each digit cap in a fresh coat of vibrant paint. Rough feet transform into velvety leg ends with a rejuvenating callus treatment, as hand and foot moisture masks are applied to act out a hydrating kabuki play for bodily extremities. Inspired by already pampered paws, faces can opt to call a chronological timeout with a 65-minute anti-aging facial customized to skin type. Exfoliating dead skin cells and renewing facial canvasses with the aid of a moisturizing vitamin C mask, the textural transformation gets an additional boost from a glycolic peel specialized for dry, hyperpigmented skin, removing dull, human-husk build-up and restoring your face to the glowing neck fruit it was always meant to be.
When owner Erica Cerpa needs to restock EC Beauty Studio’s supplies, she shops for pure seaweed, omega-3, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and vitamins A, C, and F. Cerpa favors these ingredients for the benefits they provide: seaweed eliminates toxins; omega-3 regulates oil production; acids exfoliate dead cells; and vitamins balance tone. Several other botanical ingredients make their way into facials, which are personalized for each person’s skin type. In addition to working at the studio, Cerpa travels to homes, offices, and pillow forts, offering on-location services such as airbrush tanning and spa parties. Cerpa also amplifies the volume and length of natural lashes with individually applied synthetic eyelash extensions.
Studio A Salon helps guests fully realize their beauty with a slate of hair and spa services. In addition to new hairdos, the team can perform color and conditioning treatments to keep locks from becoming lusterless. Waxing treatments are available if you want to remove unwanted fuzz from various areas on the body or recently harvested peaches, and the studio's manicure pedicure treatments keep the nails in brilliant chromatic coverings. They also have some specialty med-spa services: Cavitation, which helps burn fat deposits in the body, and infrared sauna services, which help people sweat out toxins.
Sparkle Salon’s steady-handed technicians clear unwanted hairs from delicate body areas with thorough waxing treatments. After clients retire to a secluded area, a salon staffer discusses hair-removal options, addresses customer concerns, and hypothesizes about whether Mona Lisa was smirking because she heard a joke or had a hamster crawling beneath her cloak. Next, the stubble savant meticulously applies wax to loitering strands and paper strips, and with a quick twist of the wrist removes pesky pelts residing in bikini zones and beyond. Brazilian waxing saves skin surfaces from the irritation of razor burn, the lengthy process of tweezing, and the ineffective gesture of politely asking hair to leave. Waxed surfaces can remain smooth and fuzz-free for up to six weeks.
The licensed aestheticians at Spa Aura don't just specialize in European or Asian techniques; rather, they practice a seamless fusion of both. During manicures and pedicures, for instance, nail techs not only expertly apply eye-catching polish, but also help improve blood flow with massage and acupressure techniques. Patrons then visit the upper level's nail-drying bar, where they can watch retro films or read magazines until their colors dry.
Down in the softly lit lower level, past tiled floors lined with glowing lights, aestheticians incorporate ingredients such as coconut milk into circulation-boosting body treatments. Following one of Spa Aura?s body treatments?as well as facials and massages?clients are invited for a soothing visit to the infrared sauna. The dry sauna, lined with minerals plucked from the mountains of Asia, detoxifies bodies in a more relaxing way than trying to remove pennies stuck up the nose during childhood.
