Brandi Nuttall, the owner of Dolce Salon & Spa, must believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Expanding upon her first and second Dolce locations, which measure in at 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, respectively, she opened the third hub in 2007, and now there is a fourth. The 30,000-square-foot behemoth built in 2007 houses 62 styling stations, 21 spa rooms, 14 pedicure thrones, a makeup counter, a brow bar, and manicure stations. All four locations boast the same services—though at different scales—as well as men’s hair and spa treatments and bridal styling. Unlike hotels that charge extra for doorknobs and oxygen, the salons have a generous streak. They provide hairstyling services to those who donate to Locks of Love, spa services to local foster children, and hair clippings to areas affected by oil spills.
Half a dozen facials and plenty of waxing treatments are the bread and butter of The Best Little Spa, where licensed aestheticians care for their clients' complexions in a relaxed atmosphere. The team spends around 60 minutes per facial, cleansing and steaming skin during the European treatment or combating acne and abandoned whack-a-mole holes with the high-frequency Blemish Blaster facial. Diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, meanwhile, work to buff away age spots and shrink pores. The staff members can embellish any facial with add-ons such as collagen masks. They also make way for tiny condos on the skin by waxing an array of body areas.
Shades of aqua float among chandeliers, paintings, and mirrors full of smiling reflections at Michelle's Beautique and Salon. In the midst of the artful decor and tranquil color scheme, Michelle's hair, nail, and skin technicians each perform their specialties to accentuate clients' natural beauty. Results turn indelible during permanent-makeup services, in which a professional artist enhances features while helping clients shorten morning their routines and keep their composure during underwater dates.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from guided meditation to spray tanning. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services such as hydro-derma fusion and luminous facials provide opportunities for moisturizing and photoskinthesis.
Honey and coconut, chocolate mint, and pumpkin—they could be a trio of ice-cream flavors, but at Oasis Therapy Massage & Bodywork, they’re facials that moisturize and imbue skin with antioxidants. The delectably scented facials are just the beginning of the center’s spa services. It also offers massages ranging from toxin-flushing Swedish therapy to hot-stone therapy, a treatment far more soothing than a cold-stone massage, also known as a hailstorm. The center further pampers with body wraps, including an infrared wrap that can encourage weight loss or an algae wrap that infuses skin with vitamin C.
Denise Quintana wanted her salon to honor her grandmother, her mother, and her daughter. Luckily, all three of them had the same name: Delfina. And so, Delfina Salon & Day Spa was born.
With products from brands such as American Crew, Pureology, and TIGI’s Bed Head, Quintana and her team revamp their clients’ locks with artful color, cuts, and texturizing treatments. Alternatively, they can craft intricate updos to glamorize special occasions or fit snugly into a favorite shower cap. The team also pampers clients with spa treatments that range from body scrubs to tension-easing massages.
