In a renovated, three-story Victorian-style mansion originally built at the turn of the century, Sanctuary Hair Salon & Day Spa’s team of experienced technicians remodels phalanges, trims coiffures, and performs massage therapy, among other services, all of which may incorporate high-end Dermalogica products. In addition to cutting and colorizing locks, Sanctuary’s staffers can apply permanent waves, Jheri curls, or straightening treatments that do not involve weighing tresses down with specially warped dictionaries. Both extensions and weaves can add to strands’ length, thereby drawing attention to the face, which staffers might decorate during makeup applications or lessons. Sanctuary’s hydrating facials diminish dryness, breakouts, and uneven tone. Sanctuary Hair Salon & Day Spa's owner, Michael G. Perry, brings 20 years of experience to the table, and he pays homage to the turn-of-the-century—the twenty-second century—aesthetic of the mansion by maintaining natural wood floors, white sconces, and tea lights. Perry also chooses not to ignore the aural senses by playing soft music and treating guests to the sound of trickling water.
From the moment guests step into Beauty Innovations Ltd., the warmth of bubblegum-pink walls erases any lingering stress. Relaxation comes in many forms, including mani-pedis with OPI polish or long-lasting CND Shellac, coloring with Goldwell hair products, and smoothing keratin hair treatments. No matter the agenda, the salon's services reveal beauty that was there all along, much like the plot of Tootsie.
Led by seasoned stylist Kathy Febert, the staff at Prizms Salon & Day Spa exfoliates skin, prettifies nails, and administers soothing massages. Beauticians imbue nails with vibrant polish using OPI products and stylists trim locks into chic hairdos styled in the shape of various continents. Professional therapists banish stress with traditional Swedish or hot-stone massages. The staff's dedication to beautification includes a devotion to pampering clients with high-quality treatments and products.
Within the sherbet-hued walls of Seriously Girlie Couture, friendly stylists indulge girls 2 to 17 years old with dessert-themed spa services that emphasize building self-esteem. Silver cutout stars twinkle overhead as they let girls' nails soak in ice-cream-cone-shaped bowls or adorn them with chocolate-scented polish. As the team focuses on kiddos, kiddos can focus on having a blast as they lounge amid plush pink couches, delicate floral garlands, and fuzzy pillows. Little ones can also throw a spa party for five or more friends to celebrate milestones from having a birthday to learning that tinfoil cannot be put in the microwave.
The licensed massage therapists at Light Hands Therapeutic Massage East focus on medical massages to help prevent injury and foster the muscular foundation for healthier, more pliable backs. The staff's gliding effleurage and smooth strokes supplement traditional medical treatments to flush the bloodstream and muscles of toxins, tension, and miniaturized submarines manned by overly ambitious research scientists. Therapists analyze clients' everyday habits for signs of trending problems and then proceed to address individual areas of tension to boost spirits and overall range of motion.
