Barbara Porter combines extensive training, experience, and high-quality skincare products to reupholster facial fabric with moisturized and nourished skin. For a gentle introduction to skincare, the 30-minute preteen and teen facial uses Clean Start's face-pampering line to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize faces not yet exposed to the rigors of smiling at tax auditors or bobbing for Apple computers. Once visages are revived, teen customers will leave with a Clean Start mini kit for at-home maintenance and breakout prevention.
Veteran stylist William Edge wields 20 years of experience as a platform artist and world traveler to lead the staff at his eponymous family of salons, spread across Texas and Tennessee. At each location, teams brandish an arsenal of all-natural Aveda products forged from plants and environmentally friendly ingredients found across the globe. Equipped with such powerful conditioning and coloring supplies, they curtail unruly locks with shaping, shading, and retexturing services, and enhance radiant tresses with spa services, such as massages, facials, and makeup applications. Additionally, the salons' seasoned crew helps hone future stylists' skills at Prodedgy, its own training salon for emerging talent.
The staff at Terrific Massage & Wellness Spa, invites clients of all ages and conditions into the wellness spa for a tailor-made massage or skin treatment. The licensed massage therapists, utilize light to medium pressure during Swedish massage sessions, designed specifically to alleviate stress and encourage relaxation. Clients suffering from specific, localized pain might be better suited for a deep-tissue session, which might last anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. Beyond massage, Terrific Massage’s staff administers relaxing mani-pedis and three kinds of facials, each beginning with a skin analysis and ending with a forehead-to-forehead victory bump. Brides-to-be can also stop in for a full makeup application on the big day.
Owners Israel De Leon and Daniel Rodriguez value restoration. That much is clear after a visit to Landmark Salon and Spa, their Paul Mitchell focus salon, where staffers renew appearances inside a historical water power plant. By renovating their clients’ bodies, stylists and skin technicians hope to rebuild their confidence. They also offer massages to ease tense muscles and facials that use Dermalogica products to leave skin clear, exfoliated, and as hydrated as a sponge soaking in a puddle of Gatorade.
Salon Chic Downtown’s owner, Rose Zagra, draws on 20 years of beauty-industry experience and nine years as a Creative Nail Design master technician to orchestrate a symphony of luxurious beauty treatments. To guarantee personalized service, each treatment, like all good superhero-sidekick relationships, kicks off with a one-on-one question-and-answer session. Salon Chic's nail technicians have all spent at least five years beautifying extremities, and can beautify nails with traditional polish, long-lasting CND Shellac, or artificial tips that lengthen fingers without having to spike the hand cream with fertilizer. The salon’s hair services include texture-altering treatments that range from perms to Brazilian blowouts, and its facials and chemical peels employ products from Bioelements and SkinMedica to rejuvenate skin.
