The aestheticians at American Skin Care pamper clients' skin during treatments intended to give them a smooth, youthful glow. With the power of natural Pevonia Botanica products, facial treatments work to rehydrate parched skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, rosacea, acne, and greasy face, caused by sleeping on pillows stuffed with potato chips. Hair-removal sessions eradicate unwanted hair from the body, the Swedish-style strokes of holistic massage lull tight muscles into relaxation, and polarity therapy breaks up energy blockages to bring the body into healthy harmony.
For more than 20 years, Forever-French Salons' staff members have beautified clients' fingers and toes with everything from familiar nail treatments to its signature French-style acrylics. The popularity of the pink-and-white acrylics and gels stems from their glossy, natural look and dependability; they can last for up to four weeks without fading, lifting, or breaking. At the salon's locations in Franklin and Norwood, the staff performs a varied assortment of pampering nail services, including mani-pedis, hand-painted nail art, and no-chip gel manicures.
The stylists at Sage Salon & Spa pamper guests with hair, nail, and skincare services. Along with cuts and color, guests can visit the blow-out bar for fresh new styles with a wash and blowout, or extend their locks with clip-in extensions to impress the local prince. For faces, vitamin C or cranberry facials create healthy glows while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Makeup applications, lash extensions, and waxing services are also available.
A classic barber pole is the first harbinger of Scott Anthony’s Classic Barbershop’s commitment to old-fashioned clipping techniques. Inside, clients lounge in large leather chairs in front of full-length mirrors and await an in-depth consultation to determine ideal hair length and rock star potential. Master barber and educator Scott Braga trims coifs into close-cropped cuts and fades, while Stephen Guillian renders jaw lines silky-smooth with soothing hot-towel shaves. The team wields their steel tools to create looks of any degree of difficulty, from shaved-in hair designs to distinguished whisker trims.
The tanning booth's bulbs emit a soothing glow sans UV rays. Instead, the light works beneath the skin as the body absorbs wavelengths of infrared light. Known as red-light therapy, the infrared waves help enhance appearance from the inside out by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, thereby smoothing skin and wrinkles. This treatment complements Ultimate Tanning's service menu, which includes traditional UV tanning and custom airbrush tanning. The studio also houses a salon for hair and nails, where stylists use high-end products, such as Aquage shampoos, formaldehyde-free Simply Smooth keratin treatments, and shears welded from Prince's platinum record collection.
