Salon KB’s fleet of stylists and aestheticians strives to relax guests and improve skin through a slew of services that include haircutting, facials, and waxing. Dana Bott, the resident aesthetician, performs a variety of facials that target various skin ailments, including rosacea, acne, and signs of aging. Dana also applies makeup for her clients, helping them feel more radiant or explore new looks. When it comes to hair, the salon’s trio of stylists works to manipulate locks into fashionable coifs as they perform haircuts and coloring services. Several deep-conditioning treatments are available to extend the longevity of hair coloring or to make hair softer and more likely to be okay with being cut in half.
Chipped nails and rough hands may come into Nani Day Spa, but they certainly don’t come out. The staffers’ sharp eyes and attention to detail help them carefully file down tips into square or rounded shapes and paint nail beds with classic polish, adhere acrylic nails, or cure Shellac polish for an un-chippable finish that lasts for up to two weeks. Outside of their mani-pedi treatments, the aestheticians offer full-body waxing sessions that leave skin hair-free without having to play limbo beneath a flaming torch.
Energy Center Fitness Club is manned by a staff of personal trainers, group instructors, lifestyle coaches, and massage therapists. Staffers keep the club open 24/7 to give members round-the-clock opportunities to lift free weights, climb aboard cardio and weight machines, and make saltwater taffy in the stretching area. The staff leads more than 20 group classes, whose curricula include boot camp, Zumba Toning, Pilates, and cycling. Owner, trainer, and lifestyle coach Shawn Bollig also discusses nutrition with guests, while the club's Thin & Healthy Total Solution offers clients a weight loss program aimed toward a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
Free towel service keeps workouts hygienic, as do the private locker and shower areas. Massage therapy soothes peaked muscles, while Energy Center Fitness Club renders clients tan in lie-down and standup UV booths. A complimentary play area, meanwhile, keeps children entertained and prevents their imaginary friends from hogging the invisible elliptical machines.
Professionally trained nail artiste Darci Eichelkraut performs the manicuring duties at Livin' it Up! Nail Studio, which sets up shop inside Hometown Salons in Verona. Plush, green chairs prevent clients from falling to the floor or sitting on a ficus as Darci soaks hands, tidies up cuticles, shapes and buffs nails, and applies CND Shellac polish, if requested. The professional digit doctor also pampers toes during a wide range of pedicure services, including sessions specifically designed for men and a treatment that incorporates callus reduction. Rows of colorful polish options and framed pictures of vividly decorated nails adorn Darci’s hygienic and cozy treatment room, which also features stained-wood blinds, the kind of blinds most likely to be “borrowed” by Bob Vila.
Five years ago, Stephanie—a licensed nail technician since 1999—survived a massive stroke. But that didn't stop her from pursuing her passion for her work. After a hiatus, she's now retaking the nail-art reins to refresh her skills while rebuilding her business, Tranquility Nail Spa. She offers a variety of nail services, including manicures with chip-resistant Shellac polish, pampering spa pedicures, and acrylic nails.
The seasoned staff at Lotus Salon stays continuously informed on current trends, working to outfit clients with sleek hairdos and artfully sculpted nails. During complimentary consultations, stylists take time to listen to each patron's haircare desires and dream-journal recitations, then devise personalized designs to fit varying facial shapes and skin tones. Staffers are thoroughly trained in the chemistry and intricacies of hair-color treatments, and they enlist top-quality products from brands such as Scruples and Amika to bolster the comprehensive slate of services.
In addition to mane maintenance, Lotus Salon's aestheticians refurbish busted nails during thorough manicures and pedicures, and they bronze bodies with airbrush tanning. All services are designed to enlighten clients on the tools, skills, and Cartesian philosophies necessary to re-create looks at home. Mirrors embedded into dark wooden frames complement Lotus Salon's earth-tone palette, and cushy leather chairs wait to cradle guests.
