The vampire LeSpook was nothing if not a perpetual and self-loathing parasite, repelling love with his impossibly tangled hair, grave-stained clothes, and eternally sallow complexion. He pined for the soft caress of a woman as strongly as he did the pulpy nectar that would, momentarily, sate his endless pangs. He desperately needed a drink. Just one drink—one for his former life, one for the daylight he now avoided. A cloth as black as his soul shrouded the mirror, for LeSpook believed there to be no reason to seek his reflection now. He knew what he'd see: nothing. Nothing but the faint trace of two iridescent eyes and crimson-stained lips hovering without form in the vapid expanse of his chambers. The likeness of the man he knew forsook him centuries ago. How could anyone love such a monster as this? It was then, staring at this dusty veil, that he was visited by an epiphany as stark and powerful as a murder of crows against a pale blue sky. He metamorphosed into a winged creature of the night, flapping through the cold walkways of his manner until reaching the study lined with books obscured by layers of undisturbed dust. Taking on human form once more, he opened the top of a dark wood chest and took from it a large book. He immediately flipped to the back section, seeking desperately for the category known as "stylist." Once he found what he sought within these yellow pages, he came across the name Laura Roberson. The letters lifted from the page. Yes. Laura Roberson. She would be the one who would bring his true self to the surface with a few swift snips of her shears. She would be the one that would give him the courage to find the abiding love of his immortal existence. Her Victorian styling station and steaming flat iron would complement his antiquated soul. Would she judge him when he requested the mirrors be covered? He would soon find out. Having no other alternative, LeSpook reached for the door. He hesitated before casting it open with a glance, peaking through the curtains. The elusive sun began to dip below the horizon’s harsh curve. He had no excuse now. Anything other than decisive, forceful action would lead him to recede back into his chambers, back into himself for another swift and devastating round with his inner demon.
Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, manicures, and pedicures the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
With its mint-colored walls, plush lounge area, and dark-wood curio cabinets, Azure Skin & Wellness immerses visitors into luxury the second they walk through the door. Beyond that initial introduction, the spa's team of veteran aestheticians takes over, combining expertise with the industry's latest technologies to deliver effective, non-invasive cosmetic treatments. They keep skin looking young with facials, chemical peels, and skincare remedies such as Botox and vitamin injections, and help clients maintain ache-free muscles with massages from a therapist with more than a thousand hours of training.
Heralded in Tanning Trends magazine, True Colors Tanning introduces skin to advanced bronzing technologies at a number of Louisville-area and southern Indiana locations. Each of the five levels of standup and lie-down ultraviolet-tanning beds is equipped with specialized cooling systems and ergonomic surfaces to maximize client comfort. Alternatively, experienced staffers can apply airbrushed tans or spray tans by Australian Gold in the time it takes to count 180 seconds using a laser-guided system.
The stylists at J.Nicolle Salon & Spa clip and color hair into appealing new 'dos with the aid of Aveda products. Using the pure botanical ingredients of Aveda shampoos and conditioners, they hydrate tresses or repair the damage caused by the advances of amorous hot plates. To complement hairstyles, aestheticians enhance complexions with lash extensions, makeup applications, and waxes. Nail technicians attend to extremities, grooming fingernails and toenails until they look sharp and professional.
Populated by a staff of seasoned stylists, nail technicians, and therapists whose specialties range from hair renovation to massage, Bei Capelli Salon provides a host of services to enhance natural beauty. Deep-red walls marked with floral accents flank the contemporary space, cultivating a vibrant yet relaxing atmosphere perfect for letting the stresses of the world slide away like the hero at the end of every penguin western.
