The plush leather lounge chairs at Valley Nails and Facial Spa are just one indication that when clients enter the doors, they are entering an atmosphere of relaxation and pampering. Nail technicians primp digits with manicures and pedicures, decorating nails with creative nail art such as animal stripes. On the spa side, experienced skin whisperers work to beautify the face with procedures such as chemical peels. A collection of waxing specialists, reflexology technicians, minx specialist and OPI gel polish artists also await relaxation candidates.
At Creative Nails Too, courteous nail technicians add a little dazzle to hands and feet. Once all 20 fingers and toes have been trimmed and filed, technicians can emboss them in glossy no-chip polishes or carefully paint on intricate designs such as snowflakes or tiny portraits of your favorite Baldwin brother. Once toes and fingers have been freshened up, eyebrow and lip waxes also can be booked to help ensure clients leave with a fresh face to match.
When it comes to beauty, Joanna of Joanna's Hair & Lash Extensions not only knows the latest trends, she knows how to achieve them. The stylist and lash technician stays on top of the latest styles, smoothing out coarse and frizz-prone hair with the Brazilian blowout system and adding length to short cuts with natural-looking hair extensions. She also flexes her hair-coloring muscles during ombre color and highlighting sessions, imparting locks with everything from subtle, sun-kissed hues to fun, candy-colored streaks. Showing off her expertise in all things hair, Joanna adheres lash extensions to existing lashes, emphasizing the eyes without applying mascara to them or drawing a third eye between them.
From the sunlight filtering through the window to the highlights radiating from newly styled dos, the interior of Karma Salon & Spa is filled with the brightness that only beauty brings. There, a team of stylists trained in systems by Redken and Pureology beautify hair with ammonia-free color and the Coppola Keratin System. Staffers also rejuvenate skin with Dermalogica facials, resurface faces with exfoliating Jessner peels, and ease muscles with a relaxing hot stone massage.
The staff at Spa Soma treats clients with a varied menu of aesthetic, weight-loss, and medical beauty services. They work to pair a gentle, warm environment with high-quality medical treatments, such as laser hair removal. They also offer seven different types of massage, dispelling the notion that beauty procedures backed by scientific research must be performed in a cold, sterile environment devoid of human life. These effective treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injectables, and dermal fillers, which reduce telltale signs of age, such as wrinkles or tattoos written in Sanskrit.
A full-service salon complements the center's aesthetic medical services. Here, staff members perform customized haircuts and clip nails during express and spa mani-pedis.
Overheard, crystals sway, clinging to chandeliers suspended from a sky-blue ceiling. Sunbeams pour in, occasionally catching these twinkling adornments as it stripes the lobby with light on its long slide along the marble reception desk. This is New Life Massage, where tranquility begin before you even step into a treatment room. After checking in at the desk, visitors traverse ivory corridors lit by curling wall sconces before settling into a private treatment room or smashing a stress ball in the sledgehammer room. In these secluded rooms, treatments unfold, treating guests to everything from restorative Swedish massages to skincare and waxing treatments.
