La Simpatica Salon's owner, stylist, and makeup artist, Courtney Lewis, applies her 10 years of experience beautifying celebrities and hosts for VH1, MTV, movies, and music videos to help noncelebrity clients to achieve red-carpet-worthy looks. Courtney douses patrons' manes with only the finest all-organic products culled from the tears of Mother Earth and dusts visages in mineral foundation, which blends seamlessly with natural skin tones. Before administering her signature hair services or makeup applications, Courtney consults with guests about their expectations. Those looking to pull off a specific look can bring in a photograph of the desired style or simply describe the look through a game of charades.
Hollywood Tans' fleet of UV and spray-tanning booths gild epidermises with a host of high-tech amenities. The HT60 machine builds up a base tan in three–four sessions and catches most stray UVB rays, a process which prevents the skin from exfoliating and loosing its color too soon. Custom-airbrushed and Mystic spray-tan options bypass UV rays like a tree on a hunger strike, and customizable cartridges allow clients to choose their ideal color for a natural tan that lasts up to a week. The full-service salons are open seven days a week and also offer waxing, and makeup application.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Collegeville Yoga Bar is a community yoga studio that’s based around the idea that many different types of yoga are beneficial to the body and mind. In this spacious 2,000-square-foot studio, students lay their mats down on the wood floors to take mother/daughter, Vinyasa, and Hatha yoga from certified and dedicated instructors. Relax and stretch in a calming Yin yoga class, or fuse awareness and alignment during the energetic postures of a Vinyasa session. Collegeville Yoga Bar also hosts regular events, from in-house workshops to doing yoga on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
