Honey-sugar scrubs, paraffin-wax dips, and hot-stone foot massages are a few of the add-ons the team at Angel Tips uses to comfort guests. They spread these relaxing services across an extensive menu of spa manicures, lemon pedicures, and Swedish massage. Well versed in skincare, the versatile staff draw excess oil from pores with oxygen facials and deep-cleaning masks, which leaves skin smooth—almost as smooth as their face- and body-waxing services do.
If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy. But since human bodies consist of various curves and nooks, the team at Tropical Lights Tanning Salon has acquired ergonomic tanning beds with built-in facial bulbs. Custom airbrush tans also adapt to body shapes, with expert technicians bronzing clients evenly and naturally.
Bright-red accent walls and chocolate-brown furniture create a warm ambiance at L'Rose Salon. Here, meticulous stylists deliver services in the form of haircuts, highlights, and updos, and employ renowned Wella color products when enhancing strands with new hues. Keratin treatments leave hair smoother than a bowl of pudding at a jazz club, and makeup applications create polished looks for special occasions.
At GeMargot Salon, nail buffs revitalize forlorn hands and feet with the latest techniques and polish colors. Throughout the roughly 90-minute session, nails are filed, buffed, and shaped back to their old hexagonal selves, as the aesthetician's trained hands soothe weary mitts and human hooves with an ache-relieving massage. Shellac hues and varnish are then applied to add a splash of color to the finger helmets, as a beam of UV light cures the specially formulated nail paint, rendering it chip-, smudge-, and spackle-free for up to two weeks. Guests can choose a standard shade from the Shellac line, including new hues such as Hot Pop Pink or Wildfire, or opt to highlight talon tips with a french-style frescoing. Ensuring feet don't grow jealous and walk out on their owners, peds are given their own polishing with a standard nail enamel, forgoing the chip-less formula due to their propensity for extremely gentle piano playing.
The towering poppies on the walls of Fashion Diva Spa seem to emit enough tantalizing aromas to suit their size. Honey, green tea, and citrus scents waft throughout the red-and-white wonderland, whose furniture strikes a crisp, modern contrast to the flowers. The smells don't emanate from their painted blooms, however—they stem from the baths along a pedicure bench, from the adjacent nail stations, and from private treatment rooms, where hot herbal compresses and lava stones help massage therapists loosen muscular knots. Of course, they might also drift up from complimentary cups of hot or iced tea, a warmer greeting than a welcome mat that's been set aflame.
The combined nail salon and day spa pampers guests with luxurious services to match each alluring fragrance. Cocoa-perfumed cream softens legs during a chocolate pedicure, whereas a mix of essential oils colors the aromatherapy facial. The vitamin C in skincare masks and the kelp in body wraps evince the menu's reliance on natural ingredients—a commitment the staff honors with its mink eyelash extensions, whose strands were painlessly harvested by brushing live mink on Russian farms.
Additionally, a focus on customization transforms even the most everyday treatments. Aestheticians apply specialized formulas for different skin types during waxing and airbrush tanning appointments. On a personal level, the team makes a point of memorizing clients' names, fostering an atmosphere of congeniality and closeness without preceding every massage with a trust fall onto the table.
The professional technicians at Nail Lounge pamper paws in a clean, contemporary spa accented with teal walls, comfy beige armchairs, and exposed-brick walls. During each 45- to 60-minute keratin shape-up, fingers and toes blissfully soak inside germ-free sinks and whirlpool-less spa chairs, which help to prevent run-ins with disease, irritation, and microscopic spring breakers. Palms and arches can relax with a soothing massage and warm-towel wrap, while stylists skillfully shape and buff nails and groom unruly cuticles using only sterilized, stainless-steel tools. Dedicated to harboring a healthful habitat for their human clients, as well as the environment, Nail Lounge disinfects all stations using hospital-grade germicidal cleansers and uses products that are free of parabens such as toluene and DBP. Before exiting the spa to show off their newly polished appendage tips, guests are presented with the brand new files, birchwood sticks, and buffers used during their service, which are theirs to keep for at-home pampering or scrapbooking endeavors.
In Bodre Cut and Color Room's sunny, brick-lined studio flanked by elegant paintings, a team of stylists apprised of the latest fashions tailors tresses with becoming cuts and vibrant colors. Clients settle into the canary-yellow upholstery of the salon chair as a seasoned scissor brandisher layers and chisels errant ends into the most stylish sculpture since museum curators gave Michelangelo's David a spray-tan. A professional colorist can add depth and dimension to the mane with highlights or fully transform it with a double-process hue.
