Inside modern pink, black, and white treatment rooms, trained technicians uproot unwanted fuzz from areas including brows, backs, legs, and bikini zones, freeing patrons from the monotony of shaving or belittling hair until it leaves. After offering guests complimentary cups of coffee or tea, aestheticians can also add oomph to lashes with tinting or extension treatments, and professional makeup applications send guests back into the world sporting flawless and refined complexions.
Candlelight skips across the vanilla-white walls. Through the dimness, aromatherapy oils release their fragrant scent, tickling the nose with the essence of sweet almond. The room’s warmth multiplies and, the scene set, licensed massage therapist Rey Reyes begins melting muscles, digging deep into knots with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure. In addition to his traditional massages, Rey also champions the use of hot stones and bamboo sticks to quell lingering aches, and improves athletic performance with the foam-finger-based kneads of sports bodywork.
Epic Skin Care owner Cymone Charles recognizes that everyone’s skin is different, varying in color, type, texture, and tone. That's why she uses botanical-based Bioelements products to create a diverse array of facials. The women’s signature facial softens and smoothes the skin with a high-frequency treatment and the back treatment clears up the skin on the shoulders so that clients can wear backless pajamas to work with confidence. There's even a men’s signature facial that banishes breakouts and ingrown hairs with a deep pore cleansing. Epic Skin Care’s other spa services are equally adaptable: Aestheticians wax 20 distinct face and body areas on both men and women, and nail specialists perform manicures and pedicures that can be enhanced with aromatherapy soaks and coconut-mango foot and leg massages.
At Awesome Blossom Beauty Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, the stylists beautify clients with advanced coloring and styling techniques.

They also offer body-contouring wraps, which tighten and tone in a mere 45 minutes—the same amount of time often spent hiding under a desk in an effort to convince coworkers you went to the gym.
