Helmed by sisters Chris Powell and Linda DelRosso—a duo with more than 35 years of salon experience—Hairtique Designers Inc. revitalizes hair and skin with an array of salon and spa services. An in-depth consultation kicks off every tress transformation, with guests imparting haircut ideas and personal style goals before scissors work through mops to sculpt face-flattering 'dos. Color touchups, foils, and all-over color fix up pesky roots or add subtle dimension to manes, creating hues as flawless as mathematical proofs written inside a diamond. The salon builds on the sisters' 35 years of experience and keeps current on coloring and styling trends through its dedication to continuing education. Their tenacious talents earned them a 2012 reader's choice award in Trib Total Media for best beauty salon in Pleasant Hills.
Aestheticians soothe a panoply of skin issues with vitamins, steam, and European techniques during facials, and free pelts from unwelcome fuzz with waxing for eyebrows, underarms, bikini areas, and other spots. Spray tans give bodies that just-beached look and make glossy manicures and pedicures pop. For additional comfort, the Hairtique Designers staff greets all clients with a daily assortment of beverages and baked goods, including coffee, tea, and cheesecake.
The team of licensed aestheticians at A Peace of Eden Spa beautifies its clients from head-to-toenail. Their clients can choose from a spa menu stocked with treatments such as bikini waxes, manicures and pedicures, and facials that aim to reduce wrinkles and fine lines in an effort to improve poker faces. The salon also keeps tendrils stylishly coiffed via flattering cuts and color treatments that utilize Paul Mitchell products.
Vortex Wellness & Aesthetics staffs a cadre of board-certified physicians and permanent-makeup artists, all of who work to help clients achieve their physical goals. The team has added on specialists through the years – Vortex Wellness originally opened as a weight-loss center and later expanded to include vitamin counseling, cosmetic gynecology, and chronic pain management services. They've also added locations–Vortex Wellness opened a new center in Smyrna in the fall of 2014 after success in L.A. and Long Beach.
While some spas claim to be relaxing, Spa Jema goes above and beyond, aiming to become a tranquil urban oasis for its clients. Sleek hardwood floors fill the 5,000-square-foot space, through the lounge and treatment rooms equipped with brick fireplaces, candles, and couches, which give off a homey vibe not unlike that of grandma’s Ouija board. Their services augment the calming atmosphere and include fruit-filled facials, deep-tissue massages, and pampering spa packages.
At Bella Faccia Skin Care, pampering begins even before customers meet with a staff member. Those waiting in the lobby for a nourishing facial or exfoliating body scrub can sit down in a mechanical massage chair, where motorized arms uproot stress from its hiding place. The nearby coffee bar—also stocked with spring water, tea, and juice—houses single-serving Keurig machines that brew java from the small cups that grow on coffee plants. Of course, these conveniences are only a prelude to the pampering each client receives when enjoying a fruit and vitamin peel or eyebrow wax given by one of the experienced staff aestheticians.
For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it?s not enough to simply treat patients? skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa?s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they?re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers?along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches?to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which rely on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and teeth whitening.
