A license in cosmetology isn't enough for a stylist to hit the floor at T'nT Concept Salon—they also have to go through the salon's own training program. After that, they have all of the skills necessary to perform the services on the salon's menu, which include haircuts, conditioning treatments, beard trims, extensions, updos, permanent waves, and smoothing keratin treatments. The salon also houses a color bar, where the staff mixes hues for highlights and all-over color treatments and where many Crayola crayons mistakenly go for a drink.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
Before Mary M. Reyes opened Miracle Massage, she spent nearly 30 years working in data management for NASA. During this time she became well acquainted with tense shoulders, backaches, and strains from zero-gravity coffee breaks. After leaving NASA, she took a leap of faith and embarked on a new road that led to her becoming a licensed massage therapist. Today, she has her own location and is proficient in multiple massage techniques. Although she's skilled in chair and relaxation massage, her specialty is therapeutic massage. Also known as medical massage, this treatment often focuses on specific muscle groups in order to relieve aches and support the body's healing process.
Frazzled hair surrenders to the pampering fingers of Euro International Salon's stylists. The menu flaunts a full slate of services, from those rendered by relaxing shampoos and shears to those performed with color. Amiable stylists manufacture curls with perms and outwit native frizz with deep conditioning. Like pro basketball players, the salon staff demonstrates skill atop hardwood floors in front of no fewer than 10 cheerleaders, and complimentary refreshments lend each visit a feel of warm hospitality. Flat-screen TVs, chandeliers, ornate rugs, and high ceilings under which several plants grow further encourage clients to return each time their hair refuses to stay the same length.
At Shehla's Beauty Salon & Spa, a friendly face greets customers right as they walk through the door.
