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.
Variety. That's what makes Custom Airbrush Tan & Salon different. As artists, the shop's airbrush tanners can create 18 different shades with which to imbue skin, from light golden to dark bronze. Choosing from different brands and types of solution, including eco-certified organic products, allows them to tailor tans to each customer's whims. And to complement these flawless tans, they also offer makeup and hairstyling services. Customers can even enjoy these treatments on-location, thanks to the salon's mobile unit and airbrush-tanning bat signal.
When taj salon & spa’s stylists extract coloring foils, they don’t toss them in the trash. Instead, they recycle the aluminum, putting taj on a short list of local businesses that do so. This is just one of the ways the staff show how devoted they are to beautifying both the earth and the people that populate it. The members of the styling team have been trained extensively with Aveda and the International Dermal Institute to improve their hair, skin, and massage services. Other thoughtful touches that show their dedication to clients include warm towels for the face and neck during haircuts, complimentary bang trims between visits, and stylists who travel to create stunning hairdos before a wedding or between innings of a baseball game.
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.
Much like the nearby Guthrie Theater, Level Salon exemplifies the Mill District’s reemergence as one of the Twin Cities’ preeminent places to see and be seen. Clients come from all over to entrust their hair to the salon’s stylists, who are renowned for creating bold new looks with cuts, coloring treatments, perms, and extensions. It’s also not a bad idea, as many loyal regulars have found, to stop by the salon for a manicure or brow wax before a night out at the nearby theater. As if to assert the arrival of elegance in an area once famed for its flour mills, the salon houses a swirling crystal chandelier and floor-to-ceiling curtains made of billowy dough.
The aestheticians and massage therapists at Perfect Getaway Day Spa pamper clients with a lavish spread of manicures and pedicures, custom-tailored facials, and a dozen different massage styles. Swedish and deep-tissue treatments root out aches with gentle, flowing kneads or targeted pressure, and reflexology massage relieves tension throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. Soothing soaks and massages soften hands and feet during signature mani-pedis, and facials refresh complexions with personalized blends of products designed for any skin type, whether dry, oily, or locked in an iron mask. The spa's party packages can also transform birthday or bachelorette gatherings into full-on makeovers with combinations of massages, facials, and mani-pedis.
