Sateen Tan & Spa grooms and pampers from styled head to pedicured toe with aesthetic services performed by an experienced staff. More than seven hair stylists fuss over strands, lengthening hair with extensions and smoothing frizz with keratin treatments. Sateen's licensed manicurist trims and polishes finger- and toe tips, and the licensed aesthetician employs her seven years of experience to soften faces and wax away unwanted hair. Clients can shade pallid skin with a professional airbrush-tanning session or bask in the UV rays of a medium-power bed, high-power standup booth, or ultrahigh-power hug from the sun's second cousin.
The stylists, skin soothers, massage therapists, and nail and makeup artists at Lavish Salon and Day Spa have seen their fair share of media buzz. So has owner, master stylist, and senior Goldwell hair-color educator Samantha Murguia, whose color-correction skills found themselves under the spotlight on ModernSalon.com. In 2010, OCFamily.com editor Susan Belknapp blogged that not only was her Brazilian Blowout with Murguia "a relaxing, fast-moving treatment," but also that she found the result to be "fantastic." Murguia and her team have also been featured multiple times in Inland Empire Magazine and, in 2011, graced CBS’s list of LA’s Best Blow-Drys.
Perhaps the high praise is a result of the expertise with which Murguia's crew performs their services. Or perhaps it’s the fact that they keep a close eye on the latest youthful trends. The staff includes a teen blogger who has her finger on the pulse of the beauty industry, and the salon has been accepting donations of gently used dresses, shoes, and accessories to help girls attend the prom in style. They have even offered teen makeup tutorials that explain how to complement natural facial features and use a smartphone’s blush-administering app.
AJ’s Spa Millennium has more than its extensive menu of services to thank for being named one of Fox 8's top 20 Cleveland-area day spas in 2010. The all-purpose salon and spa earned that distinction due in large part to its dedicated team of beauticians. Though they wield their scissors, brushes, and facial scrubs as effectively as anyone, the beauticians share an even more important skill: they know how to strike a perfect balance between their own input and their clients’ individual preferences.
Skilled stylists utilize relaxers and Nioxin hair-strengthening treatments to reinvent 'dos, and aestheticians keep waxing treatments thankfully brief—full Brazilians clock in at an average of only 15 minutes. But they take their time administering 1 of 15 facials, allowing clients to relax under specialty masks infused with seaweed and nourishing minerals. The spa's new collection of aromatherapy scents—which includes champagne and rose, wild honey, and grandpa—soothes the senses during massages, scrubs, and mani-pedis.
The skilled team at Karen Allen Aveda Salon & Spa cares for clients with skincare, hair, and nailcare services that promote inner and outer beauty in an atmosphere that celebrates wellness, diversity, and laughter. The salon operates under the Aveda umbrella, tending to clients with products known for their high-quality, plant-derived ingredients.
Guided by socially conscious principles for more than 30 years, Aveda produces a full line of natural beauty products carried at nearly 7,000 salons and spas. Popular gorgeous-makers such as shampure shampoo and witch-hazel hair spray deliver on Aveda's commitment to well-rounded, earthly beauty with eco-friendly packaging, cradling ingredients derived from the world's finest and least selfish plants.
Ivy Salon Spa is a combination salon and spa with one cohesive goal: to help clients look and feel their best. Its stylists cut and color hair, adding in a burst of curls or straightening frizzy locks. Meanwhile, spa techs soothe sore muscles with massages, rejuvenate complexions with facials and peels, shape and paint nails, and remove unwanted hair with waxing treatments.
At Velma Coontz Massage Therapy, the healing hands of a licensed massage therapist work away chronic pain and pent-up stress with soothing treatments. Swedish massages reduce joint stiffness and muscle soreness, whereas deep-tissue, trigger-point, and sports massages tackle targeted areas and muscle groups.
