As Andrew’s Hair Salon’s stylists cut, color, and shape tresses, they pay careful attention to achieving customers’ desired looks—just as they did when the salon opened its doors in 1964. Since then, the hairstyling industry has changed, but an emphasis on continuing education ensures that these stylists stay at the cutting edge of hair trends and techniques. Andrew’s Hair Salon also offers expert facial waxing services, keeping eyebrows shaped and upper lips and chins smooth to help clients impersonate wax mannequins at Madame Tussauds.
Silver Essence Floating Spa's experts in buoyancy help visitors drift away from mental and bodily stresses with two soothing treatments–flotation-therapy and infrared-sauna sessions. During flotation-therapy visits, patrons enter enclosed sensory-deprivation spas to recline or doggy paddle in slow motion in 10 inches of 94-degree water, bolstered by 1,000 pounds of dissolved Epsom salt to facilitate even floating. Each session results in an experience unique to the individual, ranging from mind and body relaxation to daydreaming, and can help treat conditions related to back pain, arthritis, and injury. The units are equipped with inside lights, which may be turned off or left on so guests can crochet yarn swim caps while they soak. Though salt effectively cleanses water on its own, the spa staff also employs doses of ultraviolet light and ozone to ensure water is free of bacteria. A cartridge filter system aids in creating squeaky-clean environments, sifting out tub contents 24 hours a day.
In addition to the flotation therapy, Silver Essence Floating Spa also facilitates detoxification with its infrared sauna, which can burn up to 600 calories each session. The infrared heat energy can also help relieve pain associated with fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.
After years sewing funky, girly clothing for her young daughter, Lisa Jamieson began to sell her creations online, founding the business that would become The Tutu Boutik. Colorful leg warmers, flowered headbands, and the boutique's namesake tutus line shelves and fill racks throughout the boutique's pink and zebra-striped space inside the Boulevard Mall. A licensed cosmetologist, Jamieson also makes over petite patrons' hair, faces, and nails alongside staff in the spa, forgoing techniques such as cuticle trimming that might be unsafe for tiny digits. A make-your-own-lip-gloss station grants visitors the chance to craft their own sparkly solutions, and a pink catwalk mural encourages two-dimensional guests to work the runway.
