Relax in Sassafras Street's comfortable spa atmosphere while experienced beauty-industry professionals relieve tense muscles and revitalize hair health. The treatment begins with the follicle-fraternizing crew using environmentally affable Eufora haircare products to wash, condition, and style lackluster head strands (a $55 value). Once hairs are adequately beautified, clients will be blissfully subjected to 45 minutes with a professional massage therapist (a $45 value), who will quickly knead jerky-like sinew into fall-off-the-bone body meat.

The hours pile up quickly at cosmetology school. But it?s worth it?when students graduate, they can become members of Upscale Hair & Nail Day Spa.

To Constantina Hahn, hospitality is as important as the luxurious treatments and pristine facilities that won her studio a day spa Gold award from the Beaver County Times. Inside the homey spa, clients are greeted with complimentary coffee or tea and then led past rows of antique framed mirrors that reflect hairstylists and customers chatting like old friends. To make heads feel well-cared for, organic hair-coloring products??certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA-customize hues, and Brazilian blowouts form a smoothing sheath around strands fried by chemical treatments or jealous short order cooks. Dermalogica skincare products also cater to individual needs and concerns as they are blended into tailored, age-defying treatments, and nail, waxing, massage, and tanning services ensure no limb, hair, tendon, or talon is left untended.
