The pampering skincare performed at Beautiful You extends beyond its doors. The spa’s therapists aspire to give the very best in skincare, and that means teaching clients how to care for their skin at home. Within their nook inside Square One Fitness, they provide massage therapy, tanning, body wraps, and facial treatments to clients, who also learn at-home skincare and receive detentions of they come back as Medusa.
Rain Salon & Spa’s stylists and therapists call upon the powers of Mother Nature—as embodied in plant-derived Aveda products—to repair damaged hair and untie knotted muscles. Provided they don’t have to use harsh chemicals, the stylists are always receptive to new technologies. Aveda delivers on this front with treatments such as the Smooth Infusion retexturizing system and a botanical renewal treatment that strengthens frizzy strands.
The spa’s therapists soothe backs and shoulders with 10 massage modalities, many of which come with enhancements such as Aveda blue oil and aromatherapy infused with clary sage. It’s not uncommon for other spa treatments to include more than meets the eye. Facials, for example, begin with a consultation and end with a makeup touchup. Similarly, complimentary beverages accompany nail treatments that refresh hands and feet with Caribbean aromas, OPI polishes, and freshly laundered sock puppets.
As a child, Erin Kump's favorite toy was the portable foot spa she used when giving her family members pedicures. Her favorite treats were the mud masks her mother would bring home for her from the drugstore. This interest in beauty blossomed into a career, and she became an aesthetician full time.
From their nook in Salon Rain & Day Spa, awash in soothing earth tones, Erin and her staff help work toward clients' aesthetic goals with a full roster of body treatments. Shelves brim with products from Image and HydroPeptide, which can be calibrated to help clear up acne, refresh lax skin, and empower patrons to fight signs of aging without drinking from fountains that conquistadors put their mouths all over. Beneath a sign reading “In the depths of the soul, everyone deserves to feel beautiful,” slow exhalations rustle the long leaves of live bamboo plants. Aestheticians slip past, leaving the scents of peppermint M’lis wraps and seasonal treatments in their wake.
