Before dispensing haircuts and color, stylists at Pure Perfection Salon & Spa conduct an in-depth analysis of clients’ facial shape, skin tone, and lifestyle to design a look that suits them. During the treatment, stylists pay attention to hair’s natural tendencies so that clients can re-create styles at home without resorting to heavy hairsprays, gels, or patronizing lectures. The salon is closed Tuesdays and Sundays and is open until 8 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays.
Amy K Massage's licensed massage therapists tailor therapeutic-massage sessions to each client's specific needs. They draw on Swedish, sports, neuromuscular, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques to work to relieve soreness and tension. They also offer therapies such as hot-stone massage, prenatal massage, and infant massage with instructions for caregivers.
Pure Salon & Spa's aestheticans and stylists sculpt hair and soothe skin with Aveda products. In addition to using these high-quality products, the space boasts a combination of steam and vichy showers, which staff members incorporate into packages such as the champagne-and-roses body-scrub and shea-butter experience. The experience begins with a grape body scrub that removes the top layer of skin. It doesn't linger long enough to get as sticky as a cinnamon-bun bikini, though. Instead, clients stretch out on a waterproof bed as a vichy shower's multiple nozzles bathe their bodies in warm water. The resident aesthetician concludes the treatment by massaging clients with whipped champagne and rose shea butter to leave skin moist and soft.
Though sun-shaped mirrors and spiraling chandeliers abound in Soleil Salon & Spa, they pale in comparison to clients’ skin after a diamond-facial microdermabrasion. The spa’s aestheticians take their cues from the sun, brightening complexions with custom treatments that target conditions such as acne, fine lines, and inflammation. Not to be outshone, stylists illuminate hair with clear gloss and multidimensional highlights. They draw on an array of professional products from Aveda and label.m, and their commitment to innovation has led to such services as the GKhair keratin-smoothing treatment—an advanced therapy that eliminates frizz for up to five months, or roughly as long as it would take to extinguish the sun with a super soaker.
Dr. Lisa Hatzos, owner of Renew MediSpa, has been enhancing appearances with nonsurgical aesthetic treatments since 2005. These knife-less procedures include beauty injections that tame wrinkled muscles or restore fullness to deflated features, as well as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Dr. Hatzos and her team use lasers to zap unwanted body hair, tighten lax skin, and swat menacingly at spider veins. Velashape treatments, meanwhile, smooth cellulite and contour the body. Some of the more traditional spa offerings available at this modern facility include cleansing facials and mani-pedis.
The spa is sheltered in the homey embrace of a 300-year-old Victorian house, with fireplaces to warm wintertime patrons and a garden patio that blooms in summer months. The relaxed country setting is further cultivated by the staff. The team consists of massage therapists, aestheticians, nail technicians, and a hair stylist who determines which style of music hair should perform. To give back to their community, the team discounts services for local businesses and employees of the Town of Tyngsborough.
