Everyone who visits Bella Donna Salon & Spa for hair services gets at least three treatments on the house: a scalp massage, a hand and arm massage, and an aromatic towel for their face. All those extra details are meant to make the experience a luxurious one.
The services themselves tend to have similarly extravagant touches. Inside the Aveda concept salon, stylists don't just trim and color; they also perform spiral perms and keratin-infused blow outs, which smooth the hair before shaping it into a celebrity's silhouette. Caribbean body treatment with a manicure and pedicure pampers the body with a seaweed mask and hot-stone massages incorporate sweet-smelling flower essences. The spa also offers Aveda facials, spray tans, and temporary Henna tattoos.
Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's prettifying professionals cosset hard-working countenances within the sage and chocolate trappings of their newly opened second location. The visage invigoration begins with a pore cleansing to gently wash away accumulated dirt and ink from squid-diaper-changing mishaps. Next, a face-saving aesthetician blends a tailor-made cream concoction, designed to optimally balance and nourish skin based on skin type. The staff recommends this facial as a perfect first date with skincare for spa newbies, and Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's wrought-iron chandeliers and ballad-singing candles set a romantic atmosphere for adoring newly radiant skin.
Crush Salon and Spa's diverse services run the gamut from beauty to relaxation, including hot-stone massages, keratin straightening treatments, and a full-fledged spray-tan business. The staff cuts hair for women, men, and children, applies professional makeup, and rejuvenates complexions with deep-cleansing facials. In addition to these conventional salon services, Spray U Tan—located inside Crush—focuses exclusively on airbrush tanning, bronzing clients' bodies from head to toe, conjuring golden skin tones the way alchemists conjure excuses for why they seem to never actually turn anything into gold.
Melissa Davis is a stylist and master colorist working out of Salon Lofts. She encourages communication with her clients, which allows them to work together to fashion a hairdo that meets their image goals. Aside from cuts and color treatments, Davis offers Pureology deep-conditioning masks, glue-in hair extensions, and facial waxing.
Raun's extensive staff of mane mavens bedecks headscapes with accentuating styles inside a chic, expansive studio. A noodle-nest re-invigoration begins when tress-tamers apply a single-process color to fading locks, bolstering folicles with the reinvented radiance of an LED light bulb. Then a partial highlight brightens mop-tops and adds extra accentuation to bring out natural beauty. Raun's boasts a broad roster of experienced colorists who lead patrons through customizing a color combination, much like a sherpa guiding a lost traveler through the intricacies of high-school chemistry
