For the staff at Face to Face Salon & Spa, beauty treatments shouldn't simply touch up appearances, they should provide a much-needed escape from the hectic pace of everyday life. The team confidently addresses everything from split ends to chipped nails, ensuring that clients leave feeling as rejuvenated as they look. Stylists can design a flattering hairdo by tidying up and shaping wayward strands. They can also use coloring and texturizing treatments to create an even more dramatic change. The nail technicians keep fingers and toes looking neat and trim and indulge visitors by incorporating exfoliating scrubs or soothing paraffin dips into treatments. Custom facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments help restore the skin's naturally radiant glow. For a thoroughly pampering experience, the spa's massage therapists are on hand to alleviate tension stored in the neck, shoulders, back, and feet.
Rather than rely on a traditional soak—which they claim dehydrates hands more than it moisturizes them—the nail technicians at Johnson Nail and Spa soften cuticles with heated mitts. After trimming and shaping nails, they relieve tension with warm lotion and cooling gel, massaging achy muscles before brushing on a coat of vibrant polish.
Pedicures, on the other hand, do involve a brief soak in water before a citrus squeeze and relaxing foot massage. Both manicures and pedicures can be upgraded with extras such as a salt-glow exfoliation, hot-stone massage, and foot or hand mask. The experienced techs also lengthen and fortify nails with artificial enhancements such as acrylics and solar acrylics, the latter of which harness the sun’s energy to allow for more efficient clapping.
Auto Salon experts Jeremy and Steve harness their combined 20 years of automotive expertise to spruce and tune up cars, trucks, and SUVs. Their interior detail services rid leather pores of dirt and debris, neutralize unpleasant odors, and cleanse crevices with an air gun. Along auto exteriors they remove remnants of tar and road paint, polish chrome, and apply protective paint coatings. For certain packages, the pair further refurbishes vehicular bodies with a three-stage correction that removes marring and erases vanity-plate ideas scratched into the paint. Each detailing package includes touchups such as a trunk vacuuming, a tire dressing, and a hand wash and dry. Besides detailing, Auto Salon assists drivers with maintenance services such as bumper repair, headlight restoration, alloy wheel repair, and overspray removal.
