Parto Naderi's team of pampering practitioners and creative stylists hone each client's inner and outer beauty with a robust menu of salon and spa services. Designer haircuts, colorings, and texturizing treatments for men, women, and children are enhanced with popular product brands such as Bumble and bumble., L'Oreal, and Kerastase, and a slew of skin-sloughing services rejuvenate visages, birthday suits, and Presidents’ Day leisurewear with Dermalogica solutions. Massage therapists alleviate aches with five different kneading modalities, from the popular Swedish style to more intense deep-tissue treatments. Digits don OPI polish during manicure and pedicure sessions, which can join up with a massage, hairstyling, and makeup application to create a truly indulgent day-spa package.
Mystique Hair Salon's certified stylists anoint follicles with strand services in a newly remodeled salon, using L'Oréal Professionnel and Tigi products. After being escorted to a private styling station, strand specialists peruse hair stacks, examining texture, health, and knowledge of vice-presidential-hairdo history, allowing for a personalized styling experience. After a salutary shampooing, stylists well acquainted with contemporaneous tress trends shape manes into desired expression vehicles. Those opting for a deep conditioner can expect to see an improvement in hair's appearance and hydration, with the cut and conditioning treatment taking about one hour. A high-shine glaze treatment buffs up dull follicles, and the accompanying eyebrow wax frames peepers more delicately than eyeglasses crowned with live caterpillars. Patrons seeking a color boost should budget up to three hours for the cut, conditioning treatment, and all-over color, which adds dimension, shine, and an opportunity to teach toddlers that things change, but hair will never look like a toy car and therefore should not be pulled around the floor of the living room.
Helmed by yoga expert Andrew Eppler and his team of experienced instructors, Ashtanga Yoga Studio affords everyone from beginners to seasoned yogis a diverse array of yoga classes. Students can learn Ashtanga's classical breathing techniques and movements in the Intro to Ashtanga class, or step up the intensity as they acquire the skills to breathe with the precision of an underwater opera performer in the Primary Series class. Hot Vinyasa flow is held in a room heated to 90 degrees Fahrenheit to help exercisers improve flexibility and sweat out excess pickle juice during a challenging sequence of flowing postures, and Yoga Therapeutics soothes aching bodies with gentle stretching. The studio's class schedule offers several classes every day of the week.

Pro Tip: Expect a massage customized for your needs and hot stones in every session.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
My clients love the massages I give them because I truly care how the massages effects their health. My education allows me to focus on details relating to my clients' conditions, and I study new techniques and implement them during each session. I include hot stones and bamboo roller in every session because I know the healing benefits of each. I also use pressure—not force—during deep tissue sessions to get the maximum positive results.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
The fact that I am assisting a client in self care makes me happy. I develop a connection with my clients that creates a sense of security and trust. When there is trust, there is healing.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
Calming healing touch has always come natural to me. I taught special education for 15 years and I would calm my students down with a calming touch on the shoulder. When I retired as a teacher, I knew I wanted to do massage.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I never rush a session, and I give each client my complete focus.
Touch of Serenity’s Christie honed her skills at Heritage College and uses them to relieve pain and tension with an array of kneading techniques. Located inside Plush Salon, patrons can choose a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, which mollifies tense low-lying muscles. An Indian head massage focuses on the upper back, the shoulders, the scalp, and the face, where stress can otherwise turn its owner’s appearance into that of the most stressed profession of all: steel beam. Mothers-to-be can relax during prenatal massages designed to accommodate their physical condition.
