Top-shelf products by Aveda, Kevin Murphy, and Baco line the shelves at Cristo Bello Spa Salon and Gifts, where beauty experts cosset their clients with an array of services. Experienced hairstylists spin around cushy black styling chairs in the salon, ribboning hair with full-foil highlights and freeing men, women, and children from pesky split-ends and lengths that present choking threats. They dole out helpings of the Brazilian-blowout treatment to transform frizzy strands into smooth and shiny locks, or put a hint of bounce into stick-straight strands with spiral texturizing. Nail technicians work close by, shaping and polishing nails and enveloping skin with hot stones.
Guests can escape the chatter and noisy blow dryers by retreating to the spa for a massage or facial. Licensed massage therapists push stress aside with Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massages, while clients sip on herbal tea or wine. Meanwhile, aestheticians call upon Aveda and Dr. Alkatis Organic Skin Care products to cleanse and clarify skin. They use the soy-based Nufree system to remove hair from the face and body without the irritation or bee trail of traditional waxes, and create a natural-looking tan in minutes with Norvel organic spray-tanning solutions.
Within the walls of Spa Body Works by Joyce, licensed aesthetician and massage therapist Joyce Bradley offers a variety luxurious spa treatments. Among the services she provides clients includes with professional waxing, facial, and massage services. She also puts on custom spa parties for bachelorette shindigs, corporate events, and teen get-togethers.
Using the Shellac treatment system, Alure's manicure mavens bestow long-lasting pigment and shine upon digits in an open and modern setting. The hypoallergenic treatment, which can last up to two colorful weeks, brandishes UV3 technology to overthrow the tyranny of chipping polish. Phalanges pampering takes up to an hour, and Shellac’s lack of dry-time frees fingers and toes to finally take up finger-sock knitting or giant-piano playing.
From the outside, Resolutions Med Spa has the look of a rural country house––a quality that continues inside to its pastel-hued walls, wood accents, and plush, high-backed pedicure sofas. Amid these cozy accents, guests may partake in a mélange of beautification services, ranging from microdermabrasion and chemical peels to waxing and makeup consultations. The spa also employs a licensed massage therapist who can ease chronic tension with hot-stone therapy and restorative deep-tissue bodywork.
