The stylists at Salon Evangelos skillfully cut and coif hair, but they specialize in custom color and color correction. This includes enhancing locks with demi-, semi-, and permanent hues as well as streaking hair with foil highlights to add dimension to 'dos or help big-game hunters camouflage themselves while on safari. Keratin Complex by Coppola treatments smooth frizzy strands for up to five months, and perms give body to flat follicles. Shop shelves stocked with OPI and China Glaze nail polishes and hair products from Paul Mitchell, Aveda, and Moroccanoil grant clients the means to pamper themselves at home.
Tres Chic Salon and Spa's innovative and down-to-earth staff revamps appearances with extensive offerings of hair, skincare, nail, massage, and waxing services. As clients arrive, textures of stone and leather introduce clients to the facility's luxurious feel as guests await their complimentary consultations, available for all services. Beauty experts armed with beauty products from Aveda, Moroccanoil, and Dermalogica then snip strands and cosset façades, providing clients with a naturally lit respite from the outside world. Digit designers in the secluded mani-pedi nook encourage in-depth conversations about polish trends and their effect on partisan politics, and aestheticians polish dermises in private spa rooms with procedures that include a sugar body treatment.
Floor-to-ceiling alabaster columns span Serenity Day Spa, an idyllic oasis staffed with certified aestheticians and massage therapists adept at drawing out inborn beauty encumbered by age and pent-up stress. Pastoral murals splash their soft hues against the walls of the spa’s private rooms, where pampering professionals cocoon clients in customizable body wraps and alleviate deep aches with a wide array of massages, from traditional Swedish bodywork to holistic reiki. Personalized skin analyses prelude facials and peels designed to combat the natural effects of aging or getting a bear hug from Father Time, and a comprehensive menu of waxing services ensures that fur-ridden guests can shed superfluous strands from toes to top hats.
At Veola's, a licensed spa squad grooms bodies head to toenail, attending to appendages with manicures and pedicures and sloughing off scaly skincoats with body scrubs. The 90-minute spa manicure and pedicure soaks extremities in a softening bath, setting them up for an exfoliation of their oft-exposed skin and a massage in an alpha-hydroxy moisturizer with vitamin E, aloe vera, and ceramides. A paraffin dip glazes glove fillers with an extra layer of moisture and an infusion of warmth that eases achy joints, and a coat of no-chip polish shields nails with long-lasting color that can only be removed by a thirsty rainbow.
While there are many styles of massage to choose from, the licensed massage therapists at Elements Therapeutic Massage blend a medley of kneading techniques to ease away tension. Their four-level approach helps to cater sessions to each individual client. Patrons looking for a light and relaxing massage receive a level 1 massage, whereas those with more muscle tension can opt for the medium pressure of a level 2 or 3, and clients bearing especially tangled muscle fibers or especially heavy jetpacks can find relief with the deeper manipulations and trigger-point work of a level 4.
