Inside Bon Air Salon and Spa, beauty professionals transform clients with hair, nail, facial, and massage services. Microdermabrasion removes dead, flaky skin cells, making room for younger cells to glow. Massage services disentangle muscle knots with kneading and stroking using various degrees of pressure, including deep and peer. The salon also sells beauty products and hosts spa parties for friends and family members.
Though the exterior of Alfons Skin Care?a European Tudor?style house?gives the appearance of a modest country home, the services provided within the two-decade-old spa are anything but quaint. Inside two private treatment rooms, aestheticians armed with Pevonia, Reviderm, and Jan Marini products cleanse and hydrate complexions with a combination of Mediterranean techniques and European facial treatments. Ladies select from five facial options, each accompanied by an enzyme exfoliation and customized mask. They also do eyelash extensions and undergo Clarisonic Opal eye and lip treatments.
As with locker rooms and Olympic egg-carton stomping, men have their own domain; they can indulge in a soothing scalp massage or facial-hair tinting for beards that have gone gray. But both parties can benefit from body waxing?which uses sugar, creamy lavender, and green hard wax?as well as such advanced med-spa services as Dr. Lam Probe Therapy, which removes skin tags and thread veins using radio and high-frequency technology.
Trio Salon offers traditional haircuts and coloring services alongside European facials and microdermabrasion. The salon also helps to kick-start the next generation of style with a children's service menu of scaled-down hairstyles and manicure treatments. During nail services, technicians add dynamic color to freshly buffed keratin with a full palette of polishes, or for an additional fee, CND shellac applications that remain chip-free for weeks. And for holistic care, the onsite massage therapist can supplement any service with a neck and shoulder massage or dole out a full Swedish or shiatsu bodywork treatment to anyone who’s sore from climbing the corporate ladder at the ladder factory.
Equipped with 25 years of international experience, Jon Paul rejuvenates visages with anti-aging glycolic peels or hydrating natural-enzyme facials. Epidermal layers bask under the intensive glycolic treatment, a chemical peel that saturates skin to help whisk away wrinkles loitering around eyes, mouths, and cheekbone arcades. By shucking off superficial dead cells, the resurfacing peel can smooth irregularities in skinscapes, minimizing age spots, blotchiness, or freckles configured as unpopular constellations. Taking a gentler route, the natural-enzyme facial buffs cheeks with exfoliating fruit enzymes before opening clogged pores with antioxidants and hydrating agents for an irritation-free deep cleansing.
At Lavande, a team of skilled beauty experts waits to whisk world-weary hands and feet into a warm, welcoming retreat of appendage appreciation. The rosy rosie manicure siphons stress from pressurized pointers by pampering them in a refreshing bath of rose petals, rose essential oil, milk protein, and fresh mint. Newly softened hands are then treated to a rose and citrus exfoliation, rose-water toning, and a soothing massage—leaving freshened fingers ready to once again enter the world and its throngs of undomesticated rotary phones.
A peek through Elements Salon's floor-to-ceiling window reveals an airy salon in which light-colored walls accent a smooth hardwood ceiling. This casual atmosphere carries over into the styling chairs, where natural sunlight spotlights shears as they craft styles as up-to-date as a clairvoyant's roulette bet. From traditional haircuts to skin treatments for the face and body, the team members help ensure glamorous results with products from Tru and the high-end, Italian-born Davines haircare line.
