The Refinery’s Perfect Retreat package starts the process with a stress-melting back treatment amidst the spa's casual, zen-like décor. You’ll then have your choice of a body scrub (full-body exfoliation with Dermalogica's Body Microfoliant made of tapioca starch, oatmeal, and nut shells), body hydro-pack (Dermalogica body mask containing soy milk with apricot and lavender oils), or enzymatic sea-mud wrap (exfoliating mud with papaya enzymes and citrus oils). The Refinery carries the full line of Dermalogica products, ensuring that your skin will not have to suffer the clammy, sticky, Grandma-smelling caress of lesser lotions and crustacean-derived tinctures.
Denny Kemp began his styling career as one of the first students under Horst Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda. This student has since become the master to his own proteg?s, passing on what he has learned within his own salon's walls, decorated with carefully selected artwork, some of it being the product of Denny?s own genius. Denny's brigade of innovative and artistic stylists spritzes clients with professional-grade products from Shu Uemura, K?rastase, Bumble and bumble, and Eminence, as well as the Dermalogica skincare line. They're also versed in smoothing frizz with keratin formulas and performing balayage and micro-foiling.
The aestheticians and hairstylists at Wild Orchid Salon N Spa work in tandem to create looks that are elegant and carefree—much like, say, a wild orchid. As if to drive that point home, the team dresses up massage beds with delicate orchid petals and surrounds the spa with bouquets of colorful flowers. Guests at the spa may have a difficult time paying attention to the decor, though, as they struggle to keep their eyes open during soothing pedicures and other spa treatments that are more relaxing than napping on a bed filled with melted candle wax.
Author and Juut SalonSpa owner David Wagner channels a childhood spent watching nature’s beauty into his Aveda salon’s eight locations. The studio stylists and other staff members, many of whom benefit from the company’s extensive training program, perform services beneath shelves laden with Aveda products. The botanically sourced elixirs repair and sculpt hair naturally without subjecting it to other products’ unpleasant chemicals or a robot hairdresser’s endless questions about love.
The talented stylists at Paradise Beauty Salon strive toward making bad hair days extinct with their comprehensive menu of haircare services. Their well-trained hands make them particularly adept at applying 100% human hair extensions to any type of hair, no matter the texture. With proper care, the hair extensions can keep locks long and luxurious for as long as two years.
The tan techs at Premiere Tan add golden accents to skin using an echelon of German-made Ergoline beds and UV-free Mystic Tan systems. Beds ranging from Levels 1–5 allow patrons to customize their glows, and on-board ventilation systems allow guests to bask in cool, moving air. Ergonomic contouring and MP3 players in some beds conjure up comfort beneath 32 full-body lamps or high-pressure systems in higher-level units, which may yield longer tans. Patrons prep for visits to friends stuck in sand castles with single sessions (prices vary) or monthly memberships ($23.88+/month).
