Q Salon and Spa's beautifiers employ a selection of spa services within a warmly toned lounge to unveil fashionable phalanges and pampered demeanors. Nail technicians transform five-pronged palms into elegantly adorned appendages during the 30-minute manicure (a $20 value), releasing nails from cuticle takeovers and artfully shaping tips. Appendage primpers then paint digits in your hue of choice, banishing stress with a lotion massage, a warm towel, and a miniature pitchfork-wielding mob. Then take a seat on the pedicure couch for a 45-minute foot-finger treatment (a $40 value), which softens rough heels with a mint callus scrub and mint menthol mask. From a cushioned perch, guests watch tensomes transform into sand-ready stompers with toenails parading in more colors than a Crayola reunion tour.
At Inspire Hair Studio, a cast of talented hairstylists reinvent styles for the entire family. Men, women, and children can all stop in for a quick haircut and style, each of which begins with a sudsy shampoo. Women who want a little bounce can opt for partial or spiral perms or pump up the shine with foil highlights or a double-process color treatment. Beyond cutting and coloring, the studio’s staff also administers skin-soothing facials, facial-waxing treatments, and indulgent mani-pedis topped off with Shellac polish that refuses to chip for up to two weeks, even during full-armored thumb-wrestling matches.
A rainbow wall of haircare products from Aveda, Moroccan Oil, Matrix, and Bed Head fills the sunny storefront of Rosci Salon Da' Spa. Inside, stylists rely on these crèmes to fashion three types of wave perms or conceal salt-and-pepper coifs with liquid chroma. Continuing education classes have trained their nimble fingers, which channel both men and women's styles and weave in silky human hair extensions with durable nylon bonds. In private treatment chambers, beds support bodies during eight therapeutic and relaxation massages, and Bioelements blending labs put fragrance- and color-free tonics at aestheticians' fingertips to mix into facials for every skin type. OPI polish slicks natural nails and acrylics in high-gloss color, and Jane Iredale makeup protects skin from air pollutants and UV-rays while fooling facial detection software in red-light runner cameras.:m]]
