Boagie and Bachall Spa on Vanadium's pampering staff recently doubled their digs, adding a full roster of spa services to their quarter-century history of hair expertise. While mouths sip a choice of beer, wine, mimosa, or soft drink, bodies will drink in roughly 90 minutes of relaxing spa treatments, escaping the stresses of the grueling workweek and confusing mad libs of the weekend. The 30-minute facial grants visages a merrier manner, swabbing everyday dirt and oil from the skin before applying treatments that exfoliate, tone, and hydrate facial tissue. Next, a relaxing 30-minute massage slackens sinews and tricks tension out of the body with the promise of awkward family gatherings just down the block. Hands and feet can crawl into an exfoliating paraffin bath and complete their transformation into silky appendages via a hydrating lotion massage and warming mittens. Finally, a stylist will enliven lackluster locks by offering the 'do of their choice, returning you to the outside world appearing polished while feeling as elastic as a bag of gummy worms.
