From head to toe, inside and out, the attentive staff at You're So Vain Salon and Spa cossets clients with therapeutic services. Stylists twist and tease locks into vibrant new styles and nail techs, meanwhile, fortify fingers and toes with gobs of mortar or long-lasting OPI color. Aestheticians give attention to epidermal layers with chemical peels and DermaSweep MD—a facial that sweeps away dead skin cells with topical solutions, vacuum pressure, and a precision brush-tip exfoliation. The spa treatments, including hot-stone massages and teeth whitening, can be combined into packages, with bubblegum-scented options for Little Girls spa parties.
Cassandra Guise, owner of Dolce Salon & Day Spa, oversees a team of stylists who skillfully clean, cut, and color hair. The spa’s aestheticians coat nails with striking, lasting polish, and tress wranglers can attach hair extensions that create the illusion of flowing locks or provide storage space for earbuds.
Founder and licensed therapist Kristen M. Wood soothes distressed musculature with seven different modalities of massage, from smooth Swedish strokes to the localized finger pressures of shiatsu bodywork. The clinic's specially designed massage table leaves backs optimally exposed to the therapist’s 10-fingered artistry, and hot-stone massages ease muscular tension and warm insides faster than a bowl of chicken-noodle lava. Kristen culls inspiration from ancient China and modern science alike to design techniques that bolster cells’ oxygen supplies, relieve soreness, and alleviate stiff joints.
Previously known as Sweetest Nirvana Day Spa, Spa Alexis retained the same soothing vibe and friendly, skilled spa specialists but successfully teleported their dexterous digits and luxurious lotions to a new roost downtown. The European facial is a one-hour skip-off that will leave your skin tap-dancing with joy. The procedure begins with a purifying process to extract toxins from the skin. A sumptuous massage of the face, nape, and neck follows, with custom-selected lotions that leave faces glowing like a firefly on fire. Finally, a moisturizing mask rejuvenates skin and makes it glow.
At her brand-new location, Amber Fath coaxes pores open with steam and extracts dirt from their crevices with the help of organic-skincare line Éminence. Her path to this point began in 2008, when she started learning about skin resurfacing and chemical peels. Dedicated to bettering herself at her craft, she's sought out work with acclaimed aestheticians, added lymphatic drainage to her skill set, and sat at the front with arm raised in continuing-education classes. Armed with this knowledge and experience, she administers services such as waxings and body scrubs that render skin soft and glowing.
The hair heroes at Santangelo battle their arch nemesis, baldness, with an arsenal of advanced lasers and supplements good for men and women. The hair-restoration therapy regime spreads 24 half-hour sessions over a period of three months, much like a network sitcom or a whirlwind chat-room romance. During the nonsurgical treatments, low-level laser light beams scalps to increases blood flow and stimulates follicles. Combined with topical and applications of vitamin supplements, these laser sessions can help to reduce hair loss, nourish existing hair, and in some cases, encourage nonexistent hair to come back from the grave. At the end of the three-month treatment period, Santangelo's expert technicians analyze hairs and scalps for progress with ProScope tools to determine what additional laser hair therapy will be required for full results or if customers are ready to graduate and receive their diplomas.
