The experienced stylists at this family-friendly salon aren't just masters of classic and contemporary cuts. They're also color-correction experts eager to help remedy manes left discolored after a botched at-home dye job or an accidental tumble into a neighbor's ink-filled pool. To ensure guests leave looking equally polished below the bouffant, the staff at Entourage Salon also offers waxing and nailcare, whereas a visit with the studio's licensed massage technician guarantees bodies leave feeling as good as they look.
Aches Away Therapeutic Massage and Skin Wellness's licensed massage therapist relaxes bodies with one of six massage modalities, tailored to address each client’s individual needs. Swedish massage, the most popular technique, uses gentle pressure and soothing strokes to promote total relaxation, while deep-tissue massage applies firm pressure to taut tissue, uncoiling tightly wound muscles and helping to relieve pain from past unicycle-jousting injuries. Prenatal massage eases lower-back tension associated with human incubation, and the raindrop technique splashes essential oils onto skin to promote tranquility. The relaxing manipulations of lymphatic therapy cause a drowsy lymphatic system to eagerly awaken like a shadow hunter on a sunny day. During a hot-stone massage, heated stones rest atop sore surfaces to melt pain and stress into a collected lava puddle. Along with signature massage services, staff members also provide waxing services, custom facials, and chemical peels.
Even down to its decor, Sacred Stone Massage and Bodywork exudes comfort. The space’s airy feel and soothing color palette take guests in with slate-gray walls, soft lighting, and plush blankets and pillows that adorn the furniture. The spa’s licensed massage therapists embrace and complement the mellow ambiance with a host of massage services. They stretch and soothe aching muscles during relaxing Swedish and deep-tissue sessions and give expectant mothers a break from the tension that comes with carrying an infant and constantly fighting off flocks of storks with prenatal treatments. Hot stones and paraffin wax augment some sessions, whereas others include peppermint- and lavender-infused scrubs.
All About Massage's licensed cosmetologist, Joan Collins, revives faces and bodies through services that use the latest LED technology to slough away dead skin and stimulate cell growth. Each 60-minute LED microcurrent treatment starts with a thorough expurgation that uses a Clarisonic cleansing brush and SkinBorn cleansers to wipe away grime and geriatric cells. A 20%–30% glycolic acid peel removes dead skin from epidermal terrains, before pulsating microcurrents of LED light fill and firm bodily surfaces. Age-absolving wavelengths shrink pores while tightening droopy skin, diminishing crows feet, and softening wrinkles with tender compliments. Choose the nonsurgical facelift procedure to minimize hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and rosacea. Each noninvasive treatment can tighten loose skin on under arms, chest, hips, and backsides, toning problematic places where cellulite collects. Once treated, patients return to their daily routines or full schedules of searching for coded messages in TV static without experiencing any downtime.
As an Aveda Concept Salon, Art of Life Salon & Spa goes beyond standard spa services to pamper its customers with stress-relieving massages and all-natural products. Experienced specialists transport clients to a peaceful oasis and then expertly massage away the daily stress absorbed by hands, shoulders, décolleté, and unpaid parking tickets. Well-versed in a variety of disciplines, the tension-easing massage therapists can customize any style of muscle knead to suit each client's preference of pressure and intensity. Slip into a meditative state during the soft, gliding strokes of a Swedish massage or let gently penetrating palpations of the deep-tissue massage work out deep rooted knots and the tendon’s unresolved fear of bone abandonment.
Located in a studio, Headley & Crawford Salon & Spa—both a Lanza and Dermatologica concept spa—places an emphasis on personalized care which underscores their expansive menu of beauty treatments. Take, for instance, the facials and chemical peels, which begin with a consultation and skin analysis to identify and brainstorm a treatment plan for problems such as blemishes or pores clogged with dead leaves. And the massage treatments are all prefaced by a postural assessment with the therapist to determine which modality is best suited to the client's body or relaxation needs. The meticulous attention to detail extends to the salon side of the business as well, where an emphasis on hygienic practices sees nail technicians sending clients home with single-use files and polishes and stylists sending freshly styled strands home perched atop the same head they came in on.
