With a duo of stress-relieving services, clients remove toxins and body waste simply by soaking feet in a warm foot bath for 30 to 40 minutes. During the ion-harnessing cleansing process, the body’s natural self-sweepers are activated, encouraging the release of harmful materials through the soles and into the awaiting basin. Pampered patrons may notice the water changing color over the course of the treatment, though this varies based on the individual’s health and accumulated impurities. Postsoak, bask in benefits that can include an improved sense of well-being, relieved tension, and spontaneous bouts of self-hugging.
Meshell LeHeureux (pronounced La-Rue) has been a professional hairstylist and colorist for more than 20 years, and she's seen her share of hair mistakes––especially with home dyeing. “There is no way box color can look real or natural, since no one’s hair is a solid color," explains Mechell. "Box color can’t take into account the texture of one’s hair, whether its straight, coarse, or fine...or how the texture can change from the roots to the ends of the hair.” That's why Shelly offers pre-treatment consultations, which ensure her Kadus coloring treatments are tailored to the individual.
Though Shelly is highly certified in Kadus and other specialty product lines, she still considers herself a student in cutting and coloring. Each year, she takes roughly eight workshops across the country, all to make her skill set in-line with the latest trends. These classes also offer her expert insight into modern techniques, such as ombre tapering and the service most requested by electric outlet enthusiasts: frizz reduction.
Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, men there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Clients sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, road to recovery facials, complete with a cleansing and hot towels.
Allure Nail Spa is the place to beautify natural nails with everything from basic mani-pedis to colorful acrylics, but its beauty services extend past what the spa's name suggests. Along with nailcare, the spa also offers therapeutic massages, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone modalities, and waxing and facial treatments. It enhances beauty further with eyelash extensions, which can be applied in flirtatious clusters or to individual lashes.
