A full-service salon, Amore Salon and Spa welcomes guests for hairstyling, waxing, nail, and massage services. Upon arrival, they can sink into comfy leather salon chairs and watch through mirror reflections as stylists execute haircuts, highlights, and formal 'dos using products from brands such as Schwarzkopf. Manicures shape nails before vibrant polishes anoint them with flat swatches of color. Other services include soothing massages as well as waxing to rid bodies of unwanted hair on areas such as eyebrows.
The licensed technicians at Beauty and Soul Salon/Day Spa help guests to relax and renew with an extensive menu of hair, nail, body, and skincare treatments. Harnessing high-end products such as Moroccanoil, Biolage, and Kenra, stylists expertly overhaul lackluster ‘dos with haircuts and coloring services or reverse the damaging effects of wind, winter, and taking morning jogs across paintball fields. When clients aren’t having their nails painted or unwanted hair waxed away, aestheticians ease signs of age and tiredness with facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and chemical peels. Staff members also detoxify and pamper entire physiques with seaweed wraps and stress-busting custom and hot-stone massages.
Owner and licensed massage therapist Tawnia Leslie and her team of relaxation specialists gently cocoon clients in one-hour body wraps. Rejuvenate skin with a seaweed or mud wrap, which aim to absorb excess oils, toxins, and miniscule packing peanuts from flesh while exfoliating the skin and improving epidermal circulation. The weight-loss wrap boosts metabolism and blood circulation while knocking out muscle cramps and spasms. As clients emerge from their weight-loss cocoons as slender butterflies, fat cells and toxins are released and escape on hoverboards made of sweat.
Licensed cosmetologist Sammy’s hair-color education spans the country, with trainings at both Wella Academy locations in New York and San Francisco. Not wanting to offend either coast, she has settled nearly smack dab in the middle of the country, where she dispenses expert cuts, color, updos, and perms inside Studio S. Sammy also tickles toes during pedicures and detaches face fuzz using a vat of warm wax.
It took Misty Hansen some time to discover her calling—she spent a number of years working various customer-service jobs—but in 2007 she discovered how to make the most of her innate abilities. During that year, she completed massage school, became a licensed massage therapist, and opened Massages By Misty, named the Best Day Spa, Best Massage Therapist, and Best Business in Norwalk by the Indianola Record Herald in 2012 and 2013. Since day one, she's been happily busy treating an array of clients, some of them referred by chiropractors. As a survivor of multiple car accidents throughout her life, she knows massage therapy's effectiveness in relieving people of pain and helping them recover from stress and injury.
Massages By Misty's treatment room features a heated massage table draped with luxurious sheets where guests enjoy treatments ranging from ancient Asian ashiatsu massages to rejuvenating body wraps. Misty asks clients to fill out a questionnaire so she can customize each session to focus on problem regions and avoid jacket pockets full of loose change.
