Relaxation reigns supreme at Elements Hot Tub Spa, where reprieve from the daily grind awaits in the form of bubbling hot tubs and the masterful hands of fully licensed massage therapists. Behind the doors of five themed areas, the crystal-clear tubs send toasty tides surging across limbs from up to 108 hydrotherapy jets. Inside the Fire room, visitors sink into 104-degree tubs amid warm tones of burnished slate, whereas out in the Air garden, breezes move tree boughs across stucco walls, replicating the gentle rustling synonymous with nature or book-themed scavenger hunts in a library. Stress sapping is also available through trips to the facility's infrared sauna and steam rooms, and through services such as deep-tissue massages, hot-stone treatments, and chocolate facials.
Technicians at The Wax Factory exude professionalism, but the salon's atmosphere is anything but stuffy. Touting a laid-back approach to appointments that welcomes walk-ins or hirsute skydivers who just happen to drop in, beautifiers lead clients to private treatment rooms where they evacuate fuzz from bikini borders in 10 minutes or tug fringe from brows, lips, and chins. Men can unwind in the calming lobby before gearing up for swimsuit season with a Manzilian or Mankini wax, and both genders can liberate limbs with whole- or half-leg waxing services that accommodate the changing seasons or the rise and fall of kilt hemlines.
At Sienna Tan, four different UV beds variously boast amenities such as 360-degree bulbs, facial lamps, and iPod capabilities. The salon also makes UV-free sessions available by furnishing a voice-automated VersaSpa booth that’s equipped with an air-purification system. Tanning time can be purchased by the session, the week, or the month.
Sienna Tan’s staff also encourages an ongoing relationship with their clientele by presenting appealing membership options. Monthly members receive a complimentary welcome kit, which includes free upgrades to higher level beds, a pair of UV-blocking eyewear, guest passes, and a VersaSpa session. All members can benefit from Sienna’s tanning tips, which shed light on how to best maintain a bronzed finish. Additional FormoStar body wraps use far infrared heat to jump-start metabolism, detoxify the skin, and thaw hearts frozen by the icy glares of gorgeous snowmen.
At Namaste Salon, a Bumble and bumble exclusive salon, Danae and Jordan ensure that each client gets their full attention, whether they're looking to update their looks with a completely new hairstyle or subtly enhance them with highlights. Along with fresh cuts and color, the salon's beauty experts revamp hair with extensions and keratin treatments. They also beautify bodies with spray tans, eyelash extensions, and polish digits with semi-permanent treatments, which stay chip-free for up to 14 days, no matter how many back massages you give to your coworkers.
The staff at Salon de Belle and Day Spa doesn’t wait for its clients to sit down to start pampering them. As soon as clients step through the door, the team greets them with complementary beverages, such as coffee, tea, wine, or beer. This courtesy sets the stage for the full menu of royal treatments to follow, which staffers administer in the form of blowouts, haircuts, hot-stone massages, and shellac spa pedicures.
Lifelong hair stylist Jessica Johnston furnishes her clientele with both functional and fabulous coifs at her salon, Fresh Locks. Her hair-cutting expertise extends to men’s, women’s, and children’s hair, and she embellishes haircuts with additional services that include highlights, perms, updos, and perms.
