The savvy, dedicated staff at Sabatelli's Golden Salon & Day Spa helps patrons to achieve smooth, sun-kissed skin with an all-natural, UV-free tanning solution fortified with antioxidants and pure botanicals. During each 15-minute sunless tanning session, an Infinity Sun spritzing device coats bodies with an even mist of atomized treatment lotions and darkening agents, precisely anointing epidermises with an even-toned hue that can maintain a bronze glow for up to 14 days. Sunless tanners can choose their preferred shade of tan and solution type, and await the onslaught of instant color with a bronze solution or watch a tan develop gradually with a clear solution that doubles as an invisibility shield when wearers stand in dark, windowless rooms.
Sapphire Nails and Tanning Salon's seasoned technicians revamp skin and nails with a finesse that has yielded a steady stream of loyal clients for more than 18 years. Staffers gussy up nails with intricate polish designs and acrylic sets, bolstering manicures and pedicures with aromatic scrubs that smell of pomegranate, papaya, and high fives. Facials and massages help rejuvenate weary muscles and complexions, and a fleet of tanning beds cocoon color seekers in low- to high-intensity UV rays. Sunlight pours into the salon's serene environs through a full wall of windows, illuminating cushy pedicure thrones, royal-blue rolling chairs, and a flat-screen TV.
Tangerine walls, tangerine chairs, tangerine dividers between the hair-driers and the styling stations. Hair on You Salon and Spa harnesses the vibrancy and boldness of the citrusy fruit to mirror the personalities of owner and senior stylist Veronica Scales-Howard and her talented staff of beauty gurus. In tandem, the stylists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians revamp flagging exteriors, leaving clients more confident than a time traveler betting on a horserace. Hair pros reshape coifs for men and women, add color and dimension to dull shades with highlights and double-process color treatments, and retexturize strands to take them from straight to curly or back. Cassandra, the resident skin specialist, summons Dermalogica products and clay and seaweed wraps to rejuvenate the skin, whereas a massage therapist combats stress and aches with Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports modalities. Nail technicians wrap up makeovers with indulgent spa mani-pedis topped off with colorful polish.
East meets West whenever licensed massage therapist Zoraida Alvarez kneads ailing muscles. A member of the american massage therapy association, she reduces swelling and supports the immune system with lymphatic-drainage therapy and uses trigger-point techniques to release tender knots that coil up in response to mental or physical stress. Zoraida often tailors her massages for cancer patients who have unique needs that require gentle and focused attention. She also helps athletes by hunting down muscle imbalances, inflammation, and any underlying sources of pain. Her Lypossage sessions aim to help weight-loss endeavors by reducing inches, cellulite, and the number of pets people keep in their pockets.
Ten years ago, Stephanie Lightfoot conducted massage therapy in a one-room studio. Since then, her practice has blossomed into two locations, with the historical Savage locale surrounded by a bubbling river and inhabiting a former 1800s cotton mill. A team of licensed therapists divvies up massage duties, such as soothing Swedish strokes and firmer deep-tissue pressures to tackle chronic pain. For clients with particular aches or fragile wings, the therapist can customize a massage that may integrate Swedish, deep-tissue, myofascial release, craniofacial therapy, and sports techniques. Clients can supplement massages with reiki sessions, where providers Harriet McMahon or Rev. Navasha Daya take natural discomfort readings, fix internal imbalances, and remove refrigerator magnets through hand-transmitted energy flow.
Blessed Productions seems to take its name quite literally. Decorative sconces cast halos of gold across the salon’s walls, and all that seems to be missing is a chorus of angels. This is the environment in which nail technician Linda works, and she proves quite worthy of her heavenly surroundings.
Linda draws on her expertise to file, buff, and polish nails during luxurious manicures and pedicures. Her treatment add-ons include an exfoliating sugar scrub and a hot-stone massage designed to soothe the tension stored in palms or in the shoulders of overworked finger puppets.
