A Cut Above Hair Studio is a Redken Elite Salon. That means the on-staff hairstylists, colorists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists not only boast years of practice, but they do their diligence to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques.
Over on the salon side, stylists provide designer cuts personalized to each client; they'll add color, give hair shape and volume, or straighten it to create a look that suits their client's individual features and lifestyle. Skincare services are just as personalized?during the custom spa facial, aestheticians employ warm towels, toners, moisturizers, and steam to wrestle out whatever blemishes are interfering with skin's natural radiance. Massages and body wraps round out the pampering services, offering respite from stresses such as work deadlines or trying to get your dog to eat your homework.
Ocean Spa & Massage may be hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean, but that doesn't stop the staff from trying to recreate the experience of lounging on an exotic beach. They largely succeed, thanks to a treatment menu that features relaxing massages, body waxing, and mani-pedis to go along with a full list of indulgent skin treatments. One of those treatments?the detoxifying mud cocoon?draws out impurities and induces metamorphosis with an application of warm mud followed by a thermal wrap.
At Bellagio Nails, licensed practitioners decorate fingers and toes with everything from no-chip polish to nail-art acrylics. Spa pedicures incorporate luxury touches such as hot-stone therapy and sea-salt scrubs, which make feet happier than socks made from penguin feathers. There are waxing services as well, which can be performed on legs, brows, underarms, and bikini lines.
Despite a long list of beautifying hair services and soothing massages, the most important sense at C'zar Salon-Spa is not sight or touch, but smell. Stemming from natural Aveda products, aromas drift throughout the space, tinting the air with rosemary, peppermint, and lavender scents that evoke pastoral scenes pulled straight out of the organic farms on which many of their ingredients grew. The Stress-Fix line of lotions?whose fragrances help to reduce anxiety?cloaks hands and feet in sage during specialty mani-pedis, and customized blends of essential oils augment Elemental Nature massages and facials.
Plants play a role in even the most detailed procedures at C'zar Salon-Spa. Flowers contribute extracts to the salon's cosmetics, and Nufree hair-removal formulas provide a botanical alternative to wax that's more gentle than tweezing with a venus flytrap. Although they don't incorporate leafy greens, wellness treatments such as acupuncture and cupping strive to round out makeovers by goading the body?s healing processes. For special events, the staff can accommodate groups inside the calming venue or transport their perfumed practices to a specified location.
Tucked inside J. Alison Salon and Day Spa, Kiss Spa's massaging chairs and whirlpool footbaths set the stage for classic and creative nail treatments performed by the salon's newest nail techs. In addition to traditional nail services, staffers can pamper skin and make feet fervently wish for taste buds with the Ice Cream pedicure's marshmallow foot mask and strawberry-kiwi-body-butter treatments.
At Paul Joseph Salon & Spa, an Aveda Lifestyle salon, 11 Aveda-trained professional stylists and two Aveda-trained spa providers revamp hair, skin, and nails with natural and eco-friendly products. To keep their skills up to snuff, they are dedicated to regular training sessions from Aveda. After hair-color consultations, stylists mix batches of Aveda's 99% naturally derived color formulas to suit clients' needs with permanent color, foil highlighting, and demi-permanent color. The spa providers rejuvenate faces with eight facials designed to reduce the signs of aging, heal blemishes, or even out skin tone, and nail technicians pamper hands and feet in relaxing nail suites with natural mani-pedis. Wielding Aveda's plant-based wax infused with essential oils, the staff deftly removes unwanted hair from the face and body, helping clients to look more like salamanders.
