Many people work hard to earn recognition for having a PhD. For more than 15 years, P.H.D. Salon & Spa has worked hard to help clients get recognition for having a beautiful appearance. Stylists trim, color, and perm hair or add Mega Hair human-hair extensions. The salon and spa also whitens teeth and removes evidence of wrestling on a freshly tarred road from skin. Clients who prefer one-stop beautifying stops will enjoy a selection of packages that pamper heads, hands, and feet with a variety of services, including facials, massages, or waxing treatments.
Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
Since opening its first center in 1999, Laser Skin & Wellness has expanded to two locations, both of which provide medical aesthetic treatments overseen by Medical Director, Gloria Hakkarainen, M.D. And to ensure each patient receives the best treatment for their concerns, a personalized consultation is performed before technicians craft a customized treatment plan, which can include medical weight loss programs, laser tattoo removal, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup treatments. Laser technicians gently remove unwanted hair with a Cutera CoolGlide laser, which keeps the skin comfortable with a built-in cooling device, or a Cutera ProWave 770 system that can banish strands on all skin types including invisible. During acne treatments, a Clear Light system releases blue-violet rays across the skin, killing bacteria deep in the pores. To further beautify complexions, Laser Skin & Wellness’ staff also employs Obagi, SkinMedica, EltaMD, and Jan Marini products.
Since starting in 2003 with a focus on providing top-notch eyebrow-threading services, Sangita's Beauty Spa has evolved into a place that patrons frequent for a variety of spa treatments. The spa's threading artists and internationally trained aesthetician carefully work to keep skin smooth and clear with hair-plucking cotton threads and skin-rejuvenating treatments. Guests may also stop in for a relaxing 30- to 90-minute massage or to have their social-security number temporarily emblazoned onto their body with henna ink.
Massage therapists at Believe Day Spa & Boutique have three goals: release stress, loosen muscle tightness, and increase their clients' sense of well-being. To do this, they customize each session to the needs of each patron, adding such modalities as deep-tissue massage, hot-stone release, and scalp massage as needed. They partner their line of massages with skincare, including deep-cleansing and anti-aging facials, detoxifying seaweed body wraps, and smoothing cellulite treatments.
Hair and nails have a lot in common––they're constantly growing, both look better with color, and they don't like horror movies. That's why A Wild Safari Hair & Nail Salon's stylists work alongside nail technicians to beautify both unruly split ends and overgrown cuticles. In addition to typical cuts and color treatments, hairdressers straighten hair using the Brazilian or Japanese method; nail artists can provide acrylic sets and reflexology pedicures.
