Stylist Kristi Inskeep transforms tresses within Karizma Salon's vibrantly colored atmosphere. Skillful cuts and all-over color or highlights leave clients with a youthful-looking noggin, more confident strut, and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. An eyebrow waxing carefully shapes arches into a comely configuration to better accessorize peepers as they take in Karizma's cheerful confines. Neon hues pop from every vertical surface as a black and white checkerboard floor cushions steps and provides a battlefield for human-sized reenactments of Kasparov's greatest matches.
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.
