Located in the historic Woolworth Place, the upscale Luscious Salon creates an elegant, spa-like environment adorned with plush red waiting chairs, black-and-white checkerboard tiling, and potted plants. Visitors can combat superfrazzles during the Keratin Complex smoothing treatment, a chemical- and accelerant-free procedure that removes 50%–95% of your frizz, enlivens bleach-damaged hairdos, and provides peace of mind around open flames. The hair treatment lasts for five months, and if done directly after a coloration session, it will seal in hair color, keeping it fresh and vibrant for multi-months.
Inside Exhale Hair Salon & Spa, Lanna's Nail keeps claws in pristine shape. Techs shape up unkempt nails by filing down edges into graceful curves or squared-off styles on both hands and feet. They also tend to cuticles to further create clean lines and a polished look. With even coats of nail polish, they cover both natural and acrylic talons with vibrant colors, elegant neutrals, or family portraits.
Relaxing strokes are but one tool in massage therapist Michael Parks’s arsenal of bodywork knowledge. Inspired by the grace and wisdom of martial-arts superstar Bruce Lee, he fights chronic pain with focused movements developed in the Far East. Migraine treatments teem with Eastern techniques such as reflexology and acupressure, and general massages follow a deductive, freeform style, much like the teachings of Bruce himself. During Thai massages, Michael guides the client’s body through assisted stretches that resemble yoga poses or slow-motion chicken dances. Western modalities such as Swedish massage inform stress-relief treatments, which can be tailored to address specific concerns such as sinus pressure or sports-related soreness. In addition to targeting existing aches with therapeutic touch, Michael uses postural analyses, range-of-motion assessments, and personal training to identify and address underlying sources of pain.
