At Beautiful Reflections by Barbara, Barbara boasts licensure in aesthetic services that include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and eyelash extensions. But the service that really sets her apart from her aesthetic contemporaries is her skill with waxing.
Dedicating her craft to discovering the golden bullet of "painless" waxes, Barbara undertakes gentle strand-removal procedures with high-quality waxes and techniques carefully chosen over years of experience. But her specialty is Brazilian waxes, a skill that has earned her the nickname "Barbara Brazilian" by her clientele. In addition to clearing away unwanted bikini fuzz, she decorates newly smooth skin with vajazzle services, adorning down-unders with more flair than a rainbow saddle.
The licensed massage therapist at Ahimsa Healing pulls out every tool in the musculoskeletal toolbox, calling on everything from the popular gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the energy-based healing techniques of Japanese reiki to defeat chronic pain. Visits begin with an intake form, on which clients or enchanted pencils scribble down notes regarding chronic conditions or injuries so that therapists can design a custom pain-relieving treatment. Nimble hands then manipulate muscles, calling upon deep-tissue kneads to offset injuries and craniosacral therapy to reduce headaches caused by accidentally holding your helmet and wearing your jackhammer.
Arista applies its excellent customer service to the Brazilian Blowout, a hair-health inducing treatment that can cut follicle fussing time in half. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, a 90-minute Brazilian blowout coats each shaft of your hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. An Arista stylist will then blow-dry and flat-iron your locks, re-proteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again. Free of harsh chemicals, your new, smooth, and lovely radiance lasts up to 12 weeks and can be washed and dried without dulling damage.
The Great Sea of Regeneration can only ebb and flow so quickly when it comes to healing and breathing fresh life into your shore of skin. Today's Groupon operates faster than a metaphorical body of water to soften and beautify your skin with a microdermabrasion, IPL chemical peel, or hair-removal treatment from Rajeunir Medical Spa for $29 (an up to $150 value). Don't waste your time attempting to grow new skin using a microwave and fruit leathers when you can lovingly tend your existing outer layer.
Nevaeh is an Aveda concept salon, providing clients with top-notch customer service and a wide variety of treatments designed to tame wily manes. Noodle nest nurturing begins with a relaxing neck, scalp, and shoulder massage before lackluster locks are shampooed, snipped, and clipped by one of Nevaeh’s skilled stylists. After a tress trimming, hairy head helmets are shaped and sculpted, using Aveda’s plant-based, aromatic products. Nevaeh’s upscale and tranquil environment is a calming place to pamper head whiskers. Just because linear time is an illusion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some for yourself; call ahead to make a reservation.
