Skinsations Health & Wellness Medical Spa owner and licensed aesthetician Michelle Merrix-Gowens has assembled a team of experts to provide advanced anti-aging and wellness services. She performs organic microdermabrasions and seven types of facials with a botanical skincare line whose ingredients nourish skin and enhance the face's ability to yodel. Physicians administer wrinkle-diminishing Botox injections, a massage therapist performs hot-stone treatments or reflexology sessions, and certified thermographer and two-time breast-cancer survivor Jeanne Wilson aims to detect early signs of disease with a digital infrared thermal imaging technique.
Sara Fraraccio Hair and Beauty Boutique's styling team has trained at salons across the country. This experience serves them well as they snip and color chic new hairstyles amid their salon's trendy decor, which includes a foyer with twinkling chandeliers. During their various services, the stylists employ carefully selected products from brands such as Redken, K?rastase, and Pureology. They can also dole out haircare tips or recommend a beauty school for pony tails.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
The pros at Unto Him Day Spa and Boutique remove unwanted nail and hair length, and then cover the remaining keratin sheets and locks with bright polishes and highlights. They also infuse moisture into dry feet and play This little piggy with toes during pedicures.
As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Accentrix's Salon and Spa integrates Paul Mitchell products into nearly every treatment. Stylists enrich manes with award-winning shampoos in the washhouse, and infuse hair with botanical styling aids at haircut stations. After a haircut or dye job, clients can take a seat at the toolbar—a workbench outfitted with salon-grade flat irons, round brushes, and monkey wrenches—and learn to reproduce their hairstyle at home. In addition to salon services, Accentrix offers spa services that enhance nails, bodies, and complexions while relaxing the mind.
The friendly, meticulous nail technicians at The Scissor Room pamper hands and feet with a relaxing 90-minute manicure and pedicure. After a nail guru employs 20 miniature private detectives to assess nail motive, guests relax in an oversize spa chair as appendages’ caretakers clean, trim, and reshape cuticles. Tender talons are buffed to each client’s specifications, leaving them as soft as a pillowcase filled with shredded parking tickets. Patrons are then free to peruse The Scissor Room’s inventory of nail-polish colors to dress newly smoothed finger and toe canvases in a gleaming, museum-worthy hue.
