Bright-lime-colored walls create an atmosphere of healthful exuberance inside Five Star Spa & Nails, mirroring the spa’s commitment to keeping bodies healthy and groomed with scientifically influenced skincare and up-to-date trends. Aestheticians are trained to perfect complexions, gently buffing away wrinkles and spots with microdermabrasion wands and removing brown spots or moles impulsively grown during the beauty-mark craze. When not grooming skin, whisking away body hair, or lengthening lashes, technicians flex their relaxation chops with a range of massages that can be augmented with exfoliating scrubs and tension-melting hot stones. Sitting amongst rows of Avon and OPI products, the spa’s nail technicians work to groom nails with tiers of mani-pedi treatments that make feet feel more special than being picked first to kick the moon.
Inside Suite Escape Salons of Forney, licensed massage therapist Phoebe Renee mends muscles and rubs elbows with experienced beauty techs and therapists. Guests sip on gourmet coffee and herbal tea in the lounge area as soothing music plays and candles cast a soft light that reveals any moths masquerading as humans. In her private studio, Phoebe soothes tension with Swedish massage and targets stubborn knots with deep-tissue techniques. She also offers therapeutic-massage services that split the difference between gentle Swedish and firmer deep-tissue work, as well as hot-stone and aromatherapy enhancements.
