The hairstylist and nail-technician duo at the helm of Serenity Salon & Spa suits patrons’ faces and lifestyles with a broad spectrum of beautifying services. Kylie, this tandem's hair expert, graduated from Stage One Hair School in Missouri in 2000. Since that seminal moment, she has bolstered her beautification bona fides by attaining certification as a Great Lengths Technician, working with Redken products, and developing a specialty niche as a lock colorist. Like Arnold Palmer auditing a high school geometry class, she undergoes continuing education to stay on her game. The peanut butter to Kylie's jelly, Tesha is the salon's resident nail technician. Her professional experience spans back a full 18 years, during which she has honed her chops as pedicure specialist.
The two animate their combined skill to deliver a full slate of services. Rejuvenol Brazilian keratin treatments, for instance, smooth away up to 95% of curl and frizz for 5–6 months, whereas another house specialty—Great Lengths hair extensions crafted from human hair—boosts volume. The salon’s Solar Nails strengthen the natural nails to which they bond, preventing aesthetic faux pas such as chips and french tips with sunburns. Alternatively, the two-person team can pamper solo guests or full bridal parties with custom cuts and colors, polishes for natural nails, and facial waxing.
At Skylight Massage and Skincare, specialty massages and decadent add-ons merge into uplifting treatments that rejuvenate the body and spirit. The ashiatsu massage is a house specialty featuring a deep-pressure technique that soothes sore and achy muscles in the back, chest, hips, and legs. Once muscles are loose, a client may further relax under the soothing warmth of heated basalt stones or the tingling sensations of a natural-fiber brush, used to increase blood flow. Such duality is key here, with lavish spa services softening the edges of focused therapeutic bodywork, causing pain and stress to dissolve like slugs in a salt cave. Other services include an organic cellulite massage, a 24-karat gold facial, and an herb-and-mineral foot soak that incorporates lemon clay, shea butter, and essential oils.
When customers step out of Rock It Tan, they often sport that fresh-from-an-island-vacation glow. This is due to the salon’s three levels of tanning beds and automated, UV-free Mystic Tan spray booth. Both options cast a bronzy hue to physiques, which can be enhanced or extended by a range of Australian Gold and Designer Skin.
In 2011, licensed massage therapist Paul Young saw that something was missing in his chosen profession. An avid student and connoisseur of massage therapy, Paul understood that the most meaningful and longest-lasting stress relief came from holistic treatments, rather than the symptom-based approach so prevalent within the industry. His vision of a massage experience that would unite the disparate elements of mind, body, and spirit finally came to fruition when he took it upon himself to found Pebble Creek Massage.
Today, Paul continues to earn new fans as a result of his shared focus on physical and spiritual relaxation. He begins each session with a thorough consultation before carefully kneading and stretching muscles to soften aches, stimulate blood flow, and heal injuries sustained while hiding from bosses in the office trash compactor.
India's ayurvedic traditions and modern beauty treatments come together in the hands of Nadia and the other aestheticians at Arch Brows Salon and Spa. Threading removes hair from the face without the heat of wax or molten marshmallows, and henna imbues hair with auburn hues and skin with intricate subcontinental designs. Facials invoke the healing powers of precious metals or fruit essences, and body scrubs exfoliate with sea salt or organic sugar. High-tech techniques star in the microcurrent and LED facial, which stimulates and revitalizes the skin with electricity and a portion of the rainbow.
Licensed massage therapist Krissy Mays tends to tense muscles inside the Keller Center of Healing Arts, which features private treatment rooms and a peaceful, patina-green painting of Buddha. With training at the Upledger Institute, Krissy uses craniosacral therapy to buttress the body's natural healing process by aiming to relieve pressure around the brain and spinal cord. She also received advanced training in somato-emotional release therapy, an approach that can help recipients overcome traumatic experiences, self-defeating beliefs, and shedding tears after biting into an onion. When she isn't targeting the mind, Krissy addresses physical pain with massage modalities such as Swedish, reflexology, and prenatal techniques. In addition to sharing her knowledge through interfaith ministry and life coaching, she also participates in holistic workshops and events.
Aromas of olive-oil scrubs and healing essential oils permeate the private rooms at Ultimate Relaxation, where licensed massage therapist Alicia Hill administers numerous massage modalities in order to target specific needs. Long, flowing Swedish strokes release overall tension while boosting blood and lymphatic flow, and deep-tissue techniques target lower-layer aches. Clients can also request a hot-stone massage, which calls on the heat-retention powers of smooth rocks to improve range of motion in struggling limbs and vocal range in struggling sopranos.
