Soaking fizzies, sugar scrubs, and lotions might smell sweet enough to eat, but My Chic Party Boutique?s beautifiers actually use them to pamper small hands and feet. The boutique caters solely to kids with age-appropriate spa play-dates, from mani-pedis to facials. Children can have fun pampering each other and being pampered?at special stations. And the boutique also hosts parties that not only include spa pampering, but also movies, treats, and sometimes dress-up costumes and tea. Party packages please little and big girls alike, enhancing birthdays to Girl Scout troupes.
My Bella Spa’s experienced nail technicians cater to fingers and toes on clients of all ages. Adults sip complimentary wine, soda, or water while relaxing in oversize leather pedicure chairs, and younger guests perch on colorful pedicure chairs outfitted with pink bears or princess headrests. Formal dining chairs add a touch of class to the nail-drying station, and a fish tank filled with brightly hued swimmers serves as inspiration for vibrant gel polishes that stay chip-free for two weeks, no matter how frequently you touch strangers on the bus.
At Massage by David, licensed massage therapist David Martin eases stress with a combination of massage styles. Swedish, deep-tissue, myofascial-release, and manual lymph-drainage massages are customized for each client. He's had plenty of practice at this process, as more than 6,000 hours of experience inform each of his carefully tailored massages.
One by one, Dream Lash Studio's aesthetician Jasna Bhayani applies synthetic strands to individual eyelashes. As she applies each, lashes seem fuller, darker, and longer, until she's concluded. The result: up to 100 individual lash extensions, applied so seamlessly that they appear natural and temporarily eliminate the need for mascara.
Though just a short trip from Charlotte’s bustling downtown, La Bella Vita Day Spa seems a world apart. Located amid the rolling woodlands and quaint brick buildings of Matthews, the spa reflects its immediate surroundings with serene private treatment rooms that host facials, massages, body polishes, and similarly indulgent spa services.
Wrought iron accents adorn the spa’s walls, which glow in the same golden color as the blankets spread across each massage bed. Standing beside one of these beds, massage therapists soothe anxieties and stimulate circulation with full-body Swedish techniques, neuromuscular strokes that target areas of chronic pain, and sports massages that repair muscles strained while throwing down dunks or crouching in timeout huddles. Next door, aestheticians rejuvenate skin with waxing treatments and facials that employ organic Éminence skincare products to erase blemishes. In contrast to the tranquil atmosphere of the private treatment rooms, nail technician Christie Carpenter’s manicure and pedicure stations buzz with lively chatter as she dips hands and feet in baths of moisturizing paraffin and brushes nails with vibrant polish.
