Hairdos blossom, skin textures soften, and nails brighten at the hands of the beauty professionals at Jessy K’s Salon and Spa. After a haircut, stylists can rekindle graying or fading tresses with dimensional highlights or smooth out frizzy strands with keratin treatments. Aestheticians pave the road to youth and beauty with microdermabrasion treatments, vitamin-enriched skin products, and hot-stone facials that wrestle wrinkles and fine lines from the skin, whereas nail technicians narrow in on fingers and toes during regular or shellac manicures and can also add acrylic tips to save clients the trouble of making their own nails out of pistachio shells.
Vivid Salon & Spa is bursting with creativity. The Redken salon's eight stylists offer everything from classic coifs and elegant updos to sleek, asymmetrical cuts and blue to green ombre color. Ombre color isn't just for hair, though. It's also available on nails in vibrant shades of green and violet, along with glitter and nail art, which decorate long-lasting Shellac manicures. And for those looking to complement their new 'do or digits, the spa offers soothing massages.
Gold-framed mirrors and zebra-printed chairs add pops of color to Salon Bella Vie’s understated color scheme with muted gray walls and wooden floors. It’s the place stylist Nicole calls her second home, a workstation with a sleek salon chair where men, women, and children sit during cuts, highlights, and games of I Spy.
Esprés Nails and Spa’s massage therapists melt away tension using Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, prenatal, shiatsu, foot-massage or reiki techniques. Spagoers who choose the first option feel smooth, flowing strokes sweep over tense feet, relaxing tendons drawn taut after too many games of beach racquetball. 20-minute detoxifying ionic foot baths then soothe feet when negative ions dive into warm water and lie in wait under the waves to drag toxins out of toes.
For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup; pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. And when you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
Karen Couchie loves sailing in the Caribbean. As a result, the bright colors of the tropical paradise might unconsciously seep onto the nails or hair of her clients. As a nail technician and a Redken Specialist, she can artfully color nails or color and crop hair, but Karen doesn't stop at hairdos and finger hairdos. She's also a licensed tattoo and lash artist, so she can complement clients’ natural brow and lash lines with treatments that draw more attention to the eyes than blinking neon goggles. Her light touch can also be seen in the hairline strokes or color blocking she uses to fill out brows during permanent-makeup applications, which don’t smear or smudge when subjected to water.
