Textures Hair Salon revitalizes tired locks and careworn hands and feet to create classy looks for its clientele. Spa manicures lavish 45 minutes of upgraded attention on pampering mitts into beautified submission. Another luxe 75 minutes is spent polishing and buffing tired toes and coaxing them into tiny shoe bikinis.
Outfitted with hardwood floors, wall-to-wall mirrors, and modern furnishings in hues of cream and licorice, this full-service salon shoos away its clients' stresses as soon as they arrive. Sink into a cozy leather chair and let one of Studio 2000's aesthetic experts replace a dusty noggin frame with a new, modern crown that accentuates your best facial features and suits your current lifestyle. Or, hand over your muscles to the center's licensed massage therapist for an hour of therapeutic kneads and reverse knot tying. Massage sessions take place in private, dimly lit rooms that trade hustle, bustle, and other '70s dance moves for calming candle flickering and opulent linens.
Visitors to The Spa at Park Lane step under a columned archway to enter a room awash in the soft glow that emanates from a row of chandeliers. Housed in private treatment rooms, the spa’s licensed massage therapists and aestheticians alleviate stress and soften skin with Eminence Skincare products made exclusively in Hungary.
Anthony Paul Salon’s friendly beautifiers groom follicles and phalanges using deft hands and discerning eyes. An easier way to update appearances than drawing a soul patch with magic marker, haircuts ($26/men, $35/women) shear unruly strands, leaving manes organized and voluminous. Stylistas paint locks with color, transforming hair with golden highlights or rich all-over hues ($45–$90). Never ones to let hair have all the fun, a legion of nail artists buff and polish nails with manicures ($20) and pedicures ($35). Upgrade to a Shellac manicure ($35) to pamper digits with luxe high-shine polish that can stay chip-free for up to 14 days or eternity, if you know a genie.
Previously known as Sweetest Nirvana Day Spa, Spa Alexis retained the same soothing vibe and friendly, skilled spa specialists but successfully teleported their dexterous digits to a new roost downtown. Bequeath your strands to one of these sure-handed hair stylists and let him or her wet and wring your mop, cleanse and caress your scalp with silky product, and mold tresses into a charming keratin tiara that best fits your royal dome.
The Serenity Facial (a $75 value) is BeautyQuest's classic countenance service, blending together deep cleansing, exfoliation, massage, and a mask treatment, all customized to suit the specific face at hand. The included hand and arm massage feathers the edges of the pore-based pampering with the finesse of a paintbrush manned by Bob Ross. Once skin is thoroughly scrubbed and glowing, a skilled aesthetician will use radiance like a spotlight to aid in the performing of a detailed manicure with soothing essential oils and warm towels (a $15 value). During the manicure, finger-skin and nails will be buffed and shaped until they're smiling, at which point they will be treated to an additional hydrating massage and fresh coat of polish.
