The experienced stylists at The Salon in Ames kick off feather-extension applications and haircut services with a consultation. A set of the salon's multihued feather extensions pulled from Icarus's wings peeps out from underneath locks or stands out on top. During haircuts, mane mavens lather head noodles in suds before snipping hairs and styling them with a blowout. Guests then choose from a menu of hair-and-scalp-therapy treatments, such as a deeply penetrating conditioning treatment or a hair gloss. If any patron is unsatisfied with a service or wants more time with a stylist to trade crock-pot recipes, he or she can return to the salon within two weeks for a re-do service.
Finesse Spa Salon's certified epidermal experts invigorate visages with Bioelements skincare products and Dermaglow tools. The Dermaglow microdermabrasion begins with a brief skin assessment and rinse to free faces of makeup and gossipy eyebrow mites, followed by a flood of microcrystals delivered through a damage-defying device. As the microcrystals polish and exfoliate, fine lines, acne, scarring, and pores retreat, taking infinitesimal steps toward baby-bottom softness. Post-treatment, the microcrystals are brushed off and the area is cleansed, rinsed, moisturized, and screened from the sun’s incessant autograph requests.
The licensed technicians at Beauty and Soul Salon/Day Spa help guests to relax and renew with an extensive menu of hair, nail, body, and skincare treatments. Harnessing high-end products such as Moroccanoil, Biolage, and Kenra, stylists expertly overhaul lackluster ‘dos with haircuts and coloring services or reverse the damaging effects of wind, winter, and taking morning jogs across paintball fields. When clients aren’t having their nails painted or unwanted hair waxed away, aestheticians ease signs of age and tiredness with facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and chemical peels. Staff members also detoxify and pamper entire physiques with seaweed wraps and stress-busting custom and hot-stone massages.
