Cosmetologist Natasha Torres could hardly have found a more fitting name for her spa than Garden of Eden Spa. After all, there?s something paradisiacal about her beauty treatments, which restore skin to an immaculate state with custom-blended serums. She draws on Bioelements products during her exfoliating facials, though she can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and acne with organic lactic peels. When she isn?t restoring skin?s glow, she pampers her clients with natural and hot-cream manicures, paraffin dips, and creative nail designs that help make counting to 10 less of a chore.
Simply put, the team at Miz’Mo Salon is passionate about what they do. For them, it’s not enough to beautify clients with keratin smoothout treatments, spa pedicures, and eyebrow waxing; they want to educate their clients to learn about them too. Educational night classes impart the basics in hair and makeup, and the team often hosts guest speakers to share their most secret style tips as well as advice on nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
Each member of the team of professionals at Inspiration Hair Studio and Day Spa specializes in a different facet of beautification. A master hairstylist can carefully place highlights or arrange tresses in an updo for a wedding or black-tie monster-truck rally. An on-staff medical aesthetician renders skin smooth with treatments such as diamond microdermabrasion and full-body exfoliation, and the spa’s massage therapist targets chronic tension with the soothing strokes of Swedish and deep-tissue methods. The multitalented crew also hosts birthday and bachelorette parties after business hours, where the fashionable fetes can be made more festive with the addition of food and wine.
The licensed therapists and technicians at Creative Strands Hair & Bodyworks excavate stress and instill beauty with a wide spectrum of salon and spa services. During massages, muscle manipulators call upon therapeutic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to untie knotted muscles in shoulders, backs, and vestigial dorsal fins. Unwanted hairs succumb to swathes of warm wax, and exfoliating microdermabrasion facials leave skin as smooth as Casanova’s answering-machine greeting.
The tanning booth's bulbs emit a soothing glow sans UV rays. Instead, the light works beneath the skin as the body absorbs wavelengths of infrared light. Known as red-light therapy, the infrared waves help enhance appearance from the inside out by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, thereby smoothing skin and wrinkles. This treatment complements Ultimate Tanning's service menu, which includes traditional UV tanning and custom airbrush tanning. The studio also houses a salon for hair and nails, where stylists use high-end products, such as Aquage shampoos, formaldehyde-free Simply Smooth keratin treatments, and shears welded from Prince's platinum record collection.
