Helmed by resident physician Dr. Patricia Riddle, Oasis Medspa & Wellness combines medical skincare treatments with the comforts of an upscale spa. Medical services range from dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Botox, to laser procedures, such as hair removal, spider-vein reduction, and skin resurfacing. Spa services, meanwhile, nurture and invigorate surfaces via chemical peels and facials. Relaxing spa packages pair massages with other soothing treatments, such as reflexology, facials, and whale serenades.
Under the supervision of licensed instructors, the aspiring stylists at Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology clip, polish, and primp beauty-seekers as they prepare to become tomorrow's star stylists. Strand sculptors adjust face drapes with a cut and style treatment. Trim back encroaching bangs or let tresses tumble gracefully downward with a thermal styling that uses a curling iron to leave ringlets, a flat iron to create linear locks, or the 9 iron to remove errant golf balls caught in unruly coifs. Alternatively, fingers overworked from typing and toes worn out from extended runs of "This Little Piggy" can seek solace in a mani-pedi. Technicians trim and buff nails before decking them out in a digital decoration of your choice.
Owner Artana, her two sisters, and the trained stylists at Shear Xpectations help to curate chic appearances during beautifying services. Touting expertise in hair, waxing, facials, and massage, the seasoned staff helps anchor results with products from Aveda, Dermalogica, and TIGI. An online portfolio showcases the crew's work with snapshots of its skillful ’dos, which have the power to coax compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Each sessions unfolds inside the salon's casual space, which boasts wood floors, track lighting, and dangling glass lights.
Carved-wood furniture and diffuse track and lamp lighting grace The Pynk Butterfly, where beauty specialists unleash products from the organic brand Mantra as well as the salon’s own label, Pynk Prototype. As guests sink into plush chairs, stylists revamp ’dos with hair services ranging from basic cuts to deep-conditioning and a full spectrum of color treatments.
Divine Massage Therapy induces a multisensory, full-body feeling of tranquility by combining tension-melting massages with soothing music, soft lighting, and scented essential oils. Beyond basic relaxation massages, specialty treatments include a Fire and Ice massage that transitions between warm and cool stimuli to ease pain. Raindrop therapy sees the therapist sprinkling the skin with 12 essential oils to mimic the relaxing feel of gently falling rain, then massaging them into the skin to create a tingling sensation that mimics the relaxing feel of a gentle jellyfish kiss. During each massage, guests can rest their eyes on work from local artists, such as oil paintings by Rob Shaw, which they may purchase to take a piece of the studio’s serenity home with them.
