The menu of wraps at Perla's Beauty Center might summon images of food to your mind. That's understandable, as it lists both chocolate and pomegranate varieties. You shouldn't, however, even think about eating, licking, or fondue-dipping these decadent wraps, as delicious as they may seem. Instead, just kick back as the treatments?which also come in mud, seaweed, aloe, and mineral varieties?relax the mind and soften the skin.
Perla's isn't just about making skin look radiant, though. They also offer services for the rest of the body. Nail techs gussy up digits during manicures and pedicures, and hairstylists fashion new looks with cuts, styles, and color treatments.
With services for men, women, and children, the beauty experts at Pure Platinum Salon use hair as a canvas to bring each client's fashion sense and personality into physical form. After consultations, they grab hold of scissors to snip split ends and sculpt looks that would make Chia Pet?mannequins crumble with envy. The stylists can also hone in on damaged hair and correct color or strengthen strands. Unlike lazy portrait painters, the team doesn't stop at the head; they can wax away unwanted body fuzz and spray skin with a golden tan so clients are ready for weddings or everyday events.
Sakora Salon & Day Spa carefully cleanses hair with the plants, flowers, and other natural ingredients hiding deep inside Aveda products. After conferring with customers to determine the perfect plan of action, the expert stylists treat weary necks and scalps to a massage, wash hair, and blow-dry strands, then start sculpting and styling each lock to breathe new life into the empty shell of an old hairdo. Sakora's bold red and pale yellow walls create a pleasant contrast that inspires hair to gracefully accept its new style, and the salon's interior presentation of tropical plants, candles, and sleek furniture keeps jittery follicles calm throughout the haircare procedure.
Krave Salon's style swamis tend to hair, skin, and nails with a bevy of beautifying services. Permanent makeup artist and salon co-owner Lisa Brown nestles drops of natural vegetable pigment between individual lashes to define eyelids with soft, natural-looking color and authoritative dictionary entries during a cosmetic-tattoo procedure. Alternatively, the Five Berry Pigment Control peel can help reduce discoloration with a cocktail of all-natural extracts, such as cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry, whereas the Vitamin A Professional Power peel helps encourage collagen production and cell renewal. Finally, a bikini wax gets pelvises ready for swimsuit season, much the way a watch wax prepares wrists to don revealing string Rolexes.
Kneaded Relief Wellness Spa is all about accommodation. Each time clients walk in for a massage, they’re left alone in a private treatment room to undress to their level of comfort and drape their bodies with soft sheets. Then, one of Kneaded Relief Wellness Spa’s professionally trained therapists enters the room and rubs away muscular tension with a relaxing session that incorporates techniques from Swedish, neuromuscular therapy, or other massage modalities. Throughout massages, which typically last between 30 and 90 minutes, therapists stay attentive to clients’ requests for more or less pressure. Kneaded Relief Wellness Spa also pampers clients with skin-softening exfoliations and facials, along with unique scalp massages and infrared-sauna sessions.
Advanced Holistic Health aims to give its clients the tools they need to repair their bodies. To that end, they offer massage therapy, exercise coaching, and nutritional therapy, as well as private and semi-private yoga classes that can help students of all levels push through fitness plateaus. Classes such as Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, and restorative yoga are designed to encourage freedom of movement, expression, and mental and physical practice. In the past, clients have commented on the clean, open feeling of Advanced Holistic Health's building, as well as their friendly and welcoming staff.
