Beyond their diverse lineup of hair and spa services, the beauty experts at Future Directions Hair Studio & Spa are committed to creating an active dialogue with their clients to send them home happy with the precise look that they envisioned. In inviting, softly lit treatment rooms, clients can luxuriate as spa technicians armed with Bioelements products administer signature facials to restore skin to its factory-fresh condition. In the salon area, comfy chairs lull clients into a state of relaxation as a style therapist listens to the hair's innermost hopes and dreams, snipping and combing a path to coiffure self-actualization. The hair experts tame rebellious manes with custom color, highlights, and keratin hair-straightening treatments administered with professional products from Aquage, Goldwell, Matrix, and Paul Mitchell. Put-upon paws can also be indulged with a tailored mani-pedi finished with a coat of OPI or Zoya polish.

Health Solutions Centers' team of therapists works to de-stress and rejuvenate tense and tired bodies. Melt beneath skilled tendon-treating thumbs with a one-hour therapeutic massage, during which a massage therapist targets trigger points with gentle strokes, improving circulation, soothing sore spots, and remolding areas where clay is trapped under the skin. The ionic foot detox can improve visceral and musculoskeletal health by purging toxins from the body and increasing energy.
In a whirlwind of cosmetic products by the likes of Aveda, Redken, and OPI, a diverse cast of beauty boosters pool their talents to create a tranquil spa getaway where passersby can gussy up their hair, skin, and nails. At Revelations Salon & Spa, hairstylists well versed in coiffure modifications add va-va-voom to freshly shorn locks with halo highlights or all-over color. Skin technicians perform various facials to clarify complexions muddled by acne, dryness, and calculus equations scrawled with a sharpie. Their relaxing massages unwind knotted muscles scattered throughout the body, and their comprehensive pedicures melt tension between toes tired of making strained conversation with each other.
The expert staff at Sacred Hour doesn’t view spa services as treatments, but as rituals. As such, staffers take each facial, massage, and waxing service seriously, applying products imported from Italy amid the flickering glow of candles and the tranquil drips of tabletop fountains.
All members of the business crew support a local charity and pledge to give away 1% of their gross earnings. Sacred Hour also matches every dollar raised with bills that are exfoliated and massaged until wrinkle-free.
Lava Massage Studio owner Laura Pacanin helms a team of licensed massage therapists, all of whom share her belief in massage?s unique ability to relieve stress and stimulate the body's natural healing processes. At sessions held in your home or in one of the studio?s private rooms, the therapists draw on their knowledge of Eastern and Western healing modalities to dissipate buildups of tension. Their signature Thai massages incorporate elements of yoga and acupuncture to balance the body?s out-of-whack energies; hot-stone massages take it a step further, combining Thai strokes with the soothing warmth of heated basalt stones. Among the modalities more commonly seen in a Western spa, sports massages help the body recover from injuries incurred while slam-dunking or arm-wrestling with the opposing team?s mascot.
Laura and her crew supplement their bodywork treatments with add-ons such as exfoliating foot scrubs and migraine therapy. After your appointment, visit the studio?s shop to stock up on unconventional beauty products such as goat's-milk soap and housemade sugar scrubs.
