Certified massage practitioner Ian Edwards prefers to use firmer massage techniques, which are better at targeting pain and tension deep within muscles. At his spa, Five Point Palm Massage, he maneuvers between Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and other modalities to customize each massage to the needs of the customer. He can also focus on specific areas of pain such as the back, neck and shoulders, or legs and feet.
Armed with ace styling skills, savvy scissors, and friendly personalities, Artisans’ hair whisperers coax and tease manes into top shape seven days a week. Shrewd shears evict split ends at haircut appointments ($55+), while negative ions scare strands straight at Japanese straightening sessions ($150 for the first hour, $100 for each additional hour). An ammonia-free tint touch-up makes dull head threads glow anew, attracting the ghosts of ravers past ($75+). Guests seeking more length or volume may try a bundle of 100% human-hair extensions, adding beehives and mohawks to their list of potential date-night ’dos ($400 for the first bundle). The circlets of a new perm spring from scalps, suggesting youth and energy ($110+).
Inside Ziba Beauty Lounge's spacious, modern salon, a talented staff performs services ranging from haircuts and makeup application to eyelash extensions. Skilled strand sculptors apply extensions, add color, and provide Brazilian blowouts to men, women, and lifelike robots masquerading as humans. Artfully applied bridal makeup and an updo transform women for memorable walks down the aisle. Patrons relax inside the calming salon decorated with earth tones and brightened by floor-to-ceiling windows and beams of sunlight from the second-floor balcony.
GG's Spa & Salon pampers from scalp to toes with an expansive menu of relaxation and beautification services. Clients can request an all-natural facial or solicit a skilled stylist to snip away split ends from your hair or dead ends from outdated treasure maps. The spa also employs a licensed massage therapist who eases tension with bodywork techniques such as reflexology and hot-stone therapy.
The stylists at Coiffed Hair Studio can do most anything, from trimming bangs to styling special-occasion updos to helping customers pronounce the salon's name correctly (it's kwäft). In addition to single-process color and face-framing highlights, the team can coat manes with texturizing treatments, smooth curls with Japanese hair-straightening techniques, and add hair extensions to help clients look taller when frightened.
