It's fitting that Lolita's Salon and Spa, a space dedicated to makeovers, recently underwent a makeover of its own. The newly renovated space cuts a hip and fashion-forward profile?a wall made entirely of weathered wooden slats sits opposite
a row of sleek, black styling chairs, each facing a frame-less mirror that reflects the transformations occurring all around. Stylists dole out cuts and and color services tailor-made to embellish their clients' features, while manicurists sit amidst fresh flowers and modern artwork as they wait to shape and paint finger- and toenails. Skincare specialists, meanwhile, do their part by delivering nourishing facials that wrestle wrinkles from the face and render complexions as vibrant and youthful as a blushing, unhatched egg.
The "C" in Studio C Spa could stand for any number of qualities: clean, comfortable, chic, cutting-edge. But the most apt descriptor might be "custom." Aided by products from Redken and Bioelements, the studio's stylists are known for crafting haircuts that enhance their clients' natural features. Other members of the spa team perform services that range from relaxing massages to facials that address fine lines, wrinkles, and barcodes that won't peel off. The overarching theme is one of complete personalization; no service is performed without an analysis of the client's specific needs.
In a whirlwind of cosmetic products by the likes of Aveda, Redken, and OPI, a diverse cast of beauty boosters pool their talents to create a tranquil spa getaway where passersby can gussy up their hair, skin, and nails. At Revelations Salon & Spa, hairstylists well versed in coiffure modifications add va-va-voom to freshly shorn locks with halo highlights or all-over color. Skin technicians perform various facials to clarify complexions muddled by acne, dryness, and calculus equations scrawled with a sharpie. Their relaxing massages unwind knotted muscles scattered throughout the body, and their comprehensive pedicures melt tension between toes tired of making strained conversation with each other.
