Seasoned technician Julie Gentry, a knowledgeable member of the Creative Nail Design collective, heads The French Manicure's multifaceted staff of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Crew members adeptly perform spa and salon services, sculpting tresses during hairstyling sessions and kneading away knots or extraterrestrial body-snatchers masquerading as knots during Swedish and deep-tissue massages. Exposed-brick walls bedecked with artwork encircle the skincare room, where aestheticians regale clients with cleansing facials and slimming seaweed body wraps. Thorough manicures and pedicures revivify clients' nails, and waxing services erase unwanted fuzz from faces, legs, arms, and hidden arms.
Serenity Day Spa’s cadre of experienced aestheticians and massage therapists enacts head-to-toe beauty-bolstering and stress-reducing services. An hour of serenity Swedish massage helps to stimulate the circulatory system, alleviating muscle tension and returning limbs to their natural Stretch Armstrong state of being. An adroit tissue tenderizer applies light to medium pressure along the body, loosening knots and upending toxin squatters throughout the relaxing massage. The gentle steam of an one-hour oxygen-infused serenity spa facial extricates dirt and overdue library books from pores while moisturizing arid visages. Digits in need of maintenance can opt for a manicure that shapes finger shields and cuticles before topping off nails with a polish of your choice.
The HoneyComb Cottage isn't lacking for warmth in any of its rooms?each one holds its own fireplace. It's part of the charm leftover from the spa's former life as a turn-of-the-century home. Even without flames, the fireplaces tie together its aesthetic, which is a blend of cozy?with plush couches, throw pillows, and wicker chairs?and rustic-chic?with sleek hardwood floors and modern artwork. The spa's services also mix traditional and contemporary. For instance, deep-tissue or hot-stone massage can be coupled with an exfoliating golden-honey treatment, and typical facial treatments are offered along modern ones such as microdermabrasion, as well as other beauty treatmens like teeth-whitening.
Recessed lights linger overhead like a star constellation, illuminating the salon’s neon green walls and sleek black leather furniture speckled with black-and-white accent pillows. The black-and-white theme carries into the wall-dominating pop-art portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, the style icons who inspire skilled stylist Julie Wade and her team at Kristin Karl Salon. They give guests celebrity style with flattering cuts, add dimension to locks with color and highlights, and smooth out frizz with Brazilian blowouts. To prep patrons for upcoming weddings or jury-duty reunions, the whip strands into intricately braided ponytails or classic updos.
