By frequently consulting with the team at Aveda, the staff at Scruples Salon & Spa stays on top of current trends and developments in the beauty world. They perform services both modern and time-tested, including cosmetic teeth whitening, body-hair removal, and head-hair colouring. Additionally, aestheticians and stylists goes out of their way to calm brides-to-be as they prepare for their big day. The wedding gurus apply makeup, sculpt hair worthy of being immortalized in pictures, and divulge tips on how to discern jellyfish from delicious globs of grape jelly lying on honeymoon beaches. Aveda products remain a constant in the wide array of services the staff performs, as the plant-based hair and skin serums have a proven track record of adding shine to hair and making faces look good enough to lick.
The stylists at Alleyne's Grooming For Men employ old-fashioned barbering techniques to give clients the aesthetics of a modern gentleman. The vintage interior includes traditional leather and chrome chairs, which cradle visitors during their session (see building tour here). Using massage oils, hot shaving lather and heated-towel compresses, techs polish men's faces and sculpt hairstyles more masculine than Thor’s racecar collection. The staff specializes in helping men appear elegantly at important events, such as weddings and job interviews.
Medical procedures and spa treatments share a home at Allure Skin and Laser Clinic, where medical aestheticians reinvigorate skin with facial peels, laser hair removal, permanent makeup, and other treatments that blur the line between the laboratory and the day spa. Though their specialties vary, the staff members share a common philosophy: treat each guest as an individual who deserves to be pampered.
This philosophy pervades every aspect of the spa, from the smile and steamy cup of herbal tea that await guests upon their arrival to the treatments themselves—each of which begins with a personal consultation and a customized skin analysis. The aestheticians often call upon advanced implements such as a special skin scanner to determine which treatments to deploy. Their considerable skills also allow the team to camouflage scars, whiten teeth, and obliterate rebellious planets with their laser devices.
The staff at A Touch of Paradise Esthetics boast expertise that covers nearly every square inch of the body, and they perform services with the singular aim of making guests look and feel their best. Starting at the toes, pedicures doll up feet for trips to the beach, and waxing and laser hair removal rid the entire body of unwanted bristle. More than 10 types of facials bring out each client's inner glow, and more powerful treatments such as microdermabrasion are brought in to deal with deep wrinkles and frown lines. The staff also work to maintain a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere, which is why clients are asked to turn off their phones and leave extra-crinkly potato-chip bags in the car.
