At The Nail Bar & Spa, a cocktail-themed service menu and lively watermelon-pink-shaded décor add to a laid-back atmosphere during each client’s visit. Customers in need of skin rejuvenation can choose from five different customizable facials that use high-quality Éminence brand organic skin products. Each 60-minute treatment works to target different skin issues, from the pineapple-enzyme-fueled exfoliation of the Bahama Mama facial to the specially designed gentleman’s facial, which provides a deep cleansing and treats razor bumps.
A bicycle leans against the wall in the Anthea Spa lobby, its basket filled with flowers. This touch of decor might seem out of place, but it's actually a nod to the spa's name—anthea translates to "flower" in Greek—and to its penchant for all-natural products. These products find their way into nine varieties of facials, which rely on enzymes and aromatherapy or employ European exfoliation techniques and high-frequency currents. The aestheticians also draw on herbs, healing muds, and oils to refresh skin and relax muscles during massages and body treatments. Anthea Spa also treats fingers and toes to classic and Shellac mani-pedis; the latter protects nails from chips and sock puppets prone to nervous biting.
In addition to bolstering the well-being and beauty of its human patrons, the staff at Mona Lisa Eco Salon & Spa also looks out for a much larger client: Mother Earth. That’s why the staff uses Italian-made Davines Essential Haircare products during all of their cut, style, and coloring services. Crafted from natural ingredients of Mediterranean origin, using 100% renewable energy, and housed in environmentally friendly packaging, Davines products color strands without ammonia or traces of crayon. Staffers also pamper other parts of the body, treating clients to facials, fruit peels, massages, and natural wax services.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
Freshen up façades with a strawberry- or chocolate-infused facial, which delicately exfoliates epidermal layers while treating skin to flavors your taste buds take for granted. Choose a gentle waxing to root out unruly stubble, creating a soft, follicle-free bikini line, or pamper pinkies and other deserving digits with a chocolate mani-pedi. The nourishing nail treatment includes a rich cocoa scrub, skin-tenderizing paraffin treatment, and a gleaming coat of nail paint to help you outshine unpolished thumb-war opponents.
At Whole Essential 4 U Massage Studio, therapists excel in many different styles of massage, each of which can be augmented with indulgent add-ons and extras. While clients enjoy a relaxing Swedish massage, multiple masks can help tighten skin on the face or around the eyes. Aromatherapy is included with each type of massage, including deep tissue sessions and hot stone massages, which call upon the therapeutic properties of heat to help release endorphins and decrease cramping caused by arthritis. On top of in-studio treatments, the therapists can also take their massage tables on the road for events as well as for treatments administered at their clients' homes, hotels, offices, or panic rooms.
