Inspired by Ayurveda's holistic health principles and fueled by Aveda plant products, Tridosha Salon and Spa summons inner beauty to the surface with custom hair and skin services. In the salon, stylists sculpt locks to frame faces and downplay extra ears. Aveda coloring products use botanical oils that condition the hair, create natural hues, and develop a healthy-looking shine. Skin treatments incorporate everything from warm seaweed to rosemary-mint essences to purify pores, smooth away rough spots, and awaken the senses. Aromatherapy scents waft over massage clients as they absorb Swedish and deep-tissue strokes, which can be enhanced with an aromatic scalp-massage add-on.
Hair Slingers Salon’s staff of beauticians, some of whom bring 34 years of styling to each cut, revamps clients’ looks with a full menu of hair, mani-pedi, and waxing services. In a hardwood-floored studio, whimsically decorated with hanging paper snowflakes, stylists snip and paint through cuts and color treatments, lengthen existing manes with hair extensions, and transform frizz into sleek tresses with hair-straightening treatments such as Keratin Complex and Brazilian Blowout. Along with salon services, the staff runs an in-house boutique stocked full of cute accessories including purses, wallets, and eighteenth-century-style wigs.
Salon Envy's staff cossets hair, skin, and nails with natural Aveda products and expert techniques. Stylists imbue hair with highlights and alluring cuts, smooth strands with Brazilian blowouts and Juvexin, and twirl curls into updos for special occasions such as weddings and proms. As aestheticians exfoliate, massage, polish, and imprint appendages in Grauman's cement, water swirls in a hexagonal pedicure tub and guests recline in a plush leather armchair. The beauty buffs also enliven complexions with facials, eyelash extensions, whisker-slaying electrolysis, and massages.
Aesthetician Jacquie Keller operates Essential Skin Care out of The Style Room, a 2,000-square-foot salon and spa nestled in the historic downtown of Lee’s Summit. Keller believes firmly in the power of nonsurgical treatments—in the clinic and at home—to reverse the furrowed march of aging. Through a studied application of facials, waxing services, relaxation massages, and reflexology, she puts clients at ease while jamming Father Time's fingers in the doors of perception.
Salon Ahloe's owner, Safe Ahloe, is a style-savvy stylist with more than 20 years of beauty-bolstering experience. He and his staff offer a full range of spa and salon treatments to smooth and soothe whatever section of your surface-area aches need tending, be it a freshly sore Olive Oyl tattoo or love-bite scars from a pet gull. Tend to tresses with a haircut (starting at $30 for women, $18 for men). Or, swiftly sever strands from overly follicled areas such as the face, bikini area, or pancreas ($35 each). A spa manicure ($25) or pedicure ($25) can gussy-up nail farms. Hour-long massages range from $65 to $85, depending on the style, and laser hair-removal treatments range from $45 to $300 per treatment. Because this deal can be applied to any of Salon Ahloe's myriad of services, you may have trouble deciding which parts (fingernails, toenails, chortum) should get special treatment. Flip a coin or a 12-sided die and call to schedule your appointment.
The enhanced microdermabrasion facial combines the deep exfoliation of the microdermabrasion with deep-cleansing steam, a light chemical peel, and a custom finishing mask. A thorough skin-cleansing kicks off the treatment, followed by a dreamy steam-towel and facial massage with a mask, whisking the mind away to a more relaxed place. Keri Eichhorn––the highly trained and certified aesthetician in charge of pampering facial clients with copious amounts of beauty––will employ the Pristine Precision Diamond Peel to effectively exfoliate each face's outer hull, stripping away dull skin, rough textures, and uneven pigmentation caused by a run-in with a squadron of soy sauce packets. A chemical peel is applied for one to five minutes to boost the anti-aging benefits of the microdermabrasion, and then a cool wrap will chase away demons of dry skin with hydrating oxygenation, vitamins, minerals, and amino-acid headlocks. Depending on your face's unique skincare needs, you'll receive either a hydrating mask to seal in silky-smoothness or a firming mask to tighten skin into youthfulness. Finally, the finishing products protect the face from sun, wind, earth, and lip-fires.
