Aisha Khalid opened her first women-only salon and spa in 1994 and has since expanded her beautifying services to 10 family-owned locations. The business specializes in haircare, herbal facials, henna tattoos, threading, and body waxing, which, despite its name, is not the creation of a wax statue of Marilyn Monroe, Abe Lincoln, or Abe’s torso on Marilyn’s legs. The salon is open every day of the week, accommodating clients with various schedules, and the staff takes pride in being friendly and maintaining a clean atmosphere.
With their combined expertise in hair styling and finance, sisters Kay and Kesalynn joined the family tradition started by their grandmother, Lady Eloise, and opened a salon. With Kay as the stylist and Kesalynn as the financial brains, Divine Creations Hair Designs was created with the goal of offering salon services for all hair types. And with services ranging from Brazilian blowouts to afro relaxers or spiral sets, the salon's stylists do exactly that. Hot oil and nourishing maks, along with soothing pressure-point shampoos or romantic sonnets whispered to the scalp, enhance hair health as well as style.
The facials at Facelogic Spa aim to make people feel like they're floating. Not just because of the soothing products used or the aestheticians' massage techniques, but because every client sits in a cloud-like zero-gravity recliner during their service. Unlike a traditional massage table, these chairs elevate legs to take stress off the spine and make the body feel as if it's hovering like a slice of cucumber on an air-hockey table.
While clients are suspended in this stress-free state, aestheticians tend to professional-strength skincare with a roster of masks, peels, and serums. Advanced options include chemical peels to brighten, resurface, and exfoliate faces.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 2,000 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. Those looking to amp up their aesthetic moxie can enlist in a variety of services such as weight loss treatments, spray tanning, chiropractic care, and Lipo Plex. 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.
Luxe Salon and Spa restores a healthy, relaxed glow to skin, nails, and hair. Custom facial treatments address each client?s specific skin tone and imbalances, and manicures polish nails after preventing overgrown cuticles by lining the lower base of the nail with mini sandbags. A team of talented stylists shapes hair and paints new ?dos with balayage-style highlights, which grow out to complement a head?s natural shade. The spa?s signature services include massages and body wraps, which relax the body more than submerging oneself in a dunk tank full of warm milk.
Repeat clients at FlowerChild's Studio Salon know when they come into the salon that they'll be met with a glass of wine and warm greetings. Of course, the complimentary drinks aren't the only reason customers keep coming back; it's cutting-edge owner and stylist Johari Mills. Based on client needs, Ms. Mills takes to her arsenal of beautifying methods, which include organic, all-natural, and chemical-based products. She also offers services that go beyond cuts and coloring, with extensions, keratin treatments, and custom wig making.
