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 away inside the chic Jefferson Hill shops in a Greek Revival mansion, owner Rosalyn Morris guides the team of beauticians at Studio 10. Like the plot of Face/Off, duality defines the salon's nailcare services. Two European licensed beauticians pamper both hands and feet as their owners lounge in two pedicure thrones and at two manicure stations.
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.
Inside Kimberly Blakes Nail Salon, Tracey Sturdivant puts the pamper in mani-pedis. That's because the owner of RedVega Beauty does much more than brush color over nails?she begins each session by applying a warm neck wrap to her clients. This, along with a hand massage, helps relax them as she painstakingly shapes, buffs fingernails, and trims cuticles. And she doesn't just treat her clients to nail services such as gel manicures and French pedicures. She also waxes away unwanted body hair and shapes brows to match facial features or a favorite cartoon villain's expression makers.

Yvette's Nail Spa's attentive techs refurbish bedraggled pointers and piggies using resilient OPI products. Talons unclench under massaging strokes while manicurists pamper cuticles and shape nails into gentle curves. Customer-culled hues shellac freshly renovated fingernails, lending an aesthetic edge during semaphore competitions. During the pedicure, keratin artisans smooth jagged edges and push back advancing cuticle armies before buffing heels and kneading arches for feet more relaxed than a Pulitzer Prize winner at a poetry slam. Hooves snuggle into plush towels while patrons point to their chosen toe polish.
