Guests at Lavish Salon-Spa are treated with more than just a friendly hello when they arrive. After walking through the doors, clients can enjoy a healthy snack and cup of coffee or tea from the refreshment bar, while a friendly staff member dispels tension with a relaxing hand, neck, or foot massage. And the massage is only the beginning. From there, a hair designer, esthetician, or nail tech takes the reins and treats guests to a stylish look fortified by Goldwell products, a Dermalogica facial and a swift waxing treatment, or a mani-pedi topped off with vibrant China Glaze polish. Monthly parties and weekly Happy Hours tempt guests to return even before their next appointment for desserts, drinks, and complimentary spa treatments.
Ulta's licensed staff, which partakes in ongoing training to keep skills sharp, creates customized looks and expert image enhancement using acclaimed beauty products. Like a loaf of bread in a space shuttle with a broken sunroof, hairstyles can grow stale between salon visits. A 45-minute coif-cultivation session, in which the stylist takes into account face shape and lifestyle, energizes follicles and forges a salon-fresh look. In the one-hour Dermalogica facial, an aesthetic augur examines skin in order to customize a course of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing session with Dermalogica products. The treatment leaves skin impeccable, like a recently buffed and oiled slab of marble.
