At Visage Salon & Spa, an Aveda concept salon, stylists accentuate haircuts with glossing and demi colors or Bio Ionic straightening treatments. But hair isn’t all that leaves the salon brightened and shiny—something made clear by the diverse skills amongst the 13-person team. Skin care specialists customize Elemental Nature facials to hydrate and revive complexions, and administer natural alternatives to microdermabrasion and peels using Aveda botanicals that won’t leave behind redness or signs of irritation. On top of that, aromatherapy body polishes and sea salt body wraps render skin soft and radiant, waxing services do away with lingering scruff, and manicures and pedicures pamper fingers tired from constantly typing short stories about protagonists fighting to get their nails done.
There are three bars in Bars of Beauty?a blowout bar, a facial bar, and a makeup bar here. Each one promises a stunning new look in 45 minutes or fewer, whether clients are getting one of four signature hairstyles, an express facial that deep-cleanses and balances, or airbrush makeup applications. For a more in-depth facial treatment, they can opt for a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. Bars of Beauty also hosts private events, ideal for birthdays, bachelorette parties, or just a girls' night out, complete with champagne and treatments tailored to the revelers' beauty desires.

Clients pamper themselves with massages and body treatments such as the hot-stone massage, where the heat and gentle pressure of warm basalt stones help to relieve muscle tension and stress, or the chamomile body scrub, which soothes sensitive skin and improves circulation using herbal exfoliation. An ordinary day can become a luxurious mini-vacation with spa packages, which include a complimentary sauna and incorporate massages, facials, hair and nail treatments, and a private herbal steam shower to relax and rejuvenate the body and mind. And for the big day, Christine Valmy Salon & Day Spa offers wedding packages for the bride, groom, or members of the wedding party, helping to ease wedding jitters and warm cold feet.
At Crystal Skin Care, skin need not travel far from its skeleton to indulge in European-style pampering. That?s because the center?s knowledgeable aestheticians import FDA-approved French and Swiss products that they regularly use in an array of treatments. Their menu of services restores youthful allure to skin with custom facial packages, which can incorporate skin-lifting ultrasound care and light therapy that repairs damaged skin. Other treatment regimens include microdermabrasion that removes dead skin cells and reduces fine lines, as well as rubber acne masks that close pores and help clients bounce back to their feet if they ever fall on their face. Crystal Skin Care?s team also contours bodies with its 3MAX system, which reduces the appearance of cellulite and tightens skin using sound waves and thermal energy.
By blending scientifically developed products with holistic healing techniques, the staff at Amazilian Spa can achieve both effective results and full-body relaxation in each massage, facial, and mani-pedi they perform. Aestheticians draw from a huge arsenal of treatments to nourish skin, from natural herbal serums that fight fine lines to high-tech microdermabrasion procedures that use jets of tiny crystals to slough off the dead skin cells and Teflon coatings that can dull the complexion. Therapists unravel tense muscles with full-body shiatsu, sports, and Swedish massages, while waxing specialists sculpt eyebrows and remove unwanted body hair with expertly executed waxing and tweezing services.
The certified stylists at Lashful frame eyes with mink lashes to achieve looks ranging from elegant to seductive. Their uncanny attention to detail comes in handy during extension applications, when they meticulously attach each artificial lash to a real one to achieve the most natural look possible. Sensitive eyes need not wince in fear, as the adhesive material with which they apply lashes is specially formulated to not perturb the eye with harsh irritants or teasing optical illusions. The stylists also dip natural lashes in a semipermanent tint that—much like the extensions—gives eyes the glamorous look of freshly applied mascara.
