Lisa Thomas Salon's pair of licensed aestheticians deploy their training to design custom refresher courses that promote radiant, healthy complexions. Staffers usher guests down pumpkin- and coffee-colored hallways to a treatment chamber, inviting them to recline on a bed draped in fresh linens and a soft, chenille throw. After sizing up conditions on the skin's surface, an aesthetician may pull products from the md formulations line with glycolic compounds engineered to safely exfoliate sensitive skin. The resulting refresher course may subdue overproductive oil glands, soothe inflammation caused by rosacea, or replenish moisture and nutrients lost through aging or reading only by laser light.
Tres Chic Salon and Spa's innovative and down-to-earth staff revamps appearances with extensive offerings of hair, skincare, nail, massage, and waxing services. As clients arrive, textures of stone and leather introduce clients to the facility's luxurious feel as guests await their complimentary consultations, available for all services. Beauty experts armed with beauty products from Aveda, Moroccanoil, and Dermalogica then snip strands and cosset façades, providing clients with a naturally lit respite from the outside world. Digit designers in the secluded mani-pedi nook encourage in-depth conversations about polish trends and their effect on partisan politics, and aestheticians polish dermises in private spa rooms with procedures that include a sugar body treatment.
The stylists at Salon Evangelos skillfully cut and coif hair, but they specialize in custom color and color correction. This includes enhancing locks with demi-, semi-, and permanent hues as well as streaking hair with foil highlights to add dimension to 'dos or help big-game hunters camouflage themselves while on safari. Keratin Complex by Coppola treatments smooth frizzy strands for up to five months, and perms give body to flat follicles. Shop shelves stocked with OPI and China Glaze nail polishes and hair products from Paul Mitchell, Aveda, and Moroccanoil grant clients the means to pamper themselves at home.
World Tanning's beauty specialists can vouch for the services and products they provide. Before any lotion becomes available to clients, the tanning specialists test it out, evaluating fragrance, appearance, and flavor. If a lotion or oil makes the final cut, patrons can rest assured that it meets or exceeds industry standard. The same goes for World Tanning’s lie-down and standup tanning beds, whose maximum tanning times range from 9 to 20 minutes, as well as the boutique's VersaSpa sunless tanning booths, which bronze clients to the shade of their choice in less than two minutes. A recent addition to World Tanning's service menu, an infrared sauna promotes metabolism as its warm light induces sweating or blinds deep-sea fish.
C'est La Vie Hair Boutique & Spa's private manicure and pedicure stations reside in a cove that's as stylish as the nails that emerge from it, its deep-blue walls and plush leather chairs partitioned off by attractive drapery. This appreciation of the finer things extends to the lineup of spa and salon products: staffers use popular OPI polishes to paint nails and Goldwell products to add color to hair that's dabbling in the artsy black-and-white phase of its career. Though the spa specializes in bridal hair and makeup services, men shouldn't feel left out, as the slate of male-centric treatments includes beard grooming, gray-hair blending, and even a special men's facial.
While there are many styles of massage to choose from, the licensed massage therapists at Elements Therapeutic Massage blend a medley of kneading techniques to ease away tension. Their four-level approach helps to cater sessions to each individual client. Patrons looking for a light and relaxing massage receive a level 1 massage, whereas those with more muscle tension can opt for the medium pressure of a level 2 or 3, and clients bearing especially tangled muscle fibers or especially heavy jetpacks can find relief with the deeper manipulations and trigger-point work of a level 4.
