The licensed therapists and technicians at Creative Strands Hair & Bodyworks excavate stress and instill beauty with a wide spectrum of salon and spa services. During massages, muscle manipulators call upon therapeutic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to untie knotted muscles in shoulders, backs, and vestigial dorsal fins. Unwanted hairs succumb to swathes of warm wax, and exfoliating microdermabrasion facials leave skin as smooth as Casanova’s answering-machine greeting.
The Salon at GLOW splits its insides between a hair salon and tanning salon. Over on the hair end, stylists cuts classic and modern styles on children and adults. The stylists infuse strands with new all-over hues and add pops of color with highlights and ombre-effect dye jobs. On the tanning side, private rooms offer three levels of tanning beds outfitted with face panels that ensure ears and tonsils are equally darkened during each 12-minute session; a standup booth tans skins using 180-watt bulbs for eight minutes at a time.

Cosmetologist Natasha Torres could hardly have found a more fitting name for her spa than Garden of Eden Spa.

When she isn?t restoring skin?s glow, she pampers her clients with natural and hot-cream manicures, paraffin dips, and creative nail designs that help make counting to 10 less of a chore.
