The beauticians at Silk & Stone connect East and West with a repertoire of Middle Eastern–inspired spa services, products, and workshops that beautify and illuminate members of each culture. Silk & Stone’s resident henna artist develops a lengthy list of retail products, from botanical-based haircare blended with Pakistani, Persian, and Indian recipes to aromatherapy oils. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians perform services including an Ayurvedic facial with complimentary footbath or threading, which allows a technician to accurately pluck facial, hand, and finger hairs from any skin type with imported antibacterial cotton thread. The cultural tradition of henna is brought into sharp focus as artists use the powder to naturally dye the hair, create intricate designs on brides for their wedding day, or teach students tips and tricks for applying the dye to hands, feet, or their invisible friend’s forearm.
Housed in a charming art-deco abode, Salon St. Jacques is a welcoming, relaxing spa specializing in state-of-the-art skin and body care. Petra Nicoll, an experienced guru of organic treatments, helms skin services for a natural and holistic flesh refurbishment. Revamp weather-beaten faces with an express 30-minute minifacial tailored to individual skin types ($45). After Petra bastes the frontal visage with both a cleanser and toner, she gifts grippers with a sea-spa hand massage. Mineral-rich foundational makeup acts as a coda to this whirlwind facial tour-de-force. The specialized foot bath will soak away stress while simultaneously sucking toxic substances out of the body ($55). Water gradually turns murky brown during the treatment, shamefully reminding clients of their mothers sagely advice to clean behind their epidermal system before bed. As cells are shocked into detoxification mode with the bath's low-voltage currents, myriad healthful benefits can emerge, including a heightened immune system, decreased blood pressure, and a faster metabolism.
In addition to its expertise in follicular evictions, Unique Arch boasts a convenient downtown State Street location with free two-hour street parking, resulting in stress-free hair removal of even the most unruly head caterpillars. Walk-ins are welcome.
