Denean Lewis Salon’s stylists, colorists, and manicurists work in tandem to provide head-to-toe beauty. Stylists emphasize healthy hair practices during client consultations and then take styling goals from dream to reality with trendy cuts, protein conditioning treatments, and color or chemical-straightening services. Nails get their fair shake at a chic revival with mani-pedis that may be made even more fashion-forward with nail-art designs. Eyelash extensions help heighten sultry gazes and keep dust from collecting on the inside of sunglasses.
Peter Ferritto started his career in hair more than 25 years ago, when he honed his craft under the guidance of one of London's premier stylists. With Abbey Road Salon, he brings European hairstyling to a yankee crowd. Each staff member has at least a decade of industry experience, and is skilled at shaping locks into chic coiffures and performing various texturizing treatments. They can also freshen 'dos with shimmering, nuanced color.
Luxury Sweet Escape Spa was founded by a licensed aesthetician and a licensed massage therapist. Chris and Julie combined their powers to carve out a space where folks can spruce up with beauty treatments or wind down with spa services. The facials include a little of both; they begin with a skin analysis and continue with a deep cleansing, extractions, and choice of aroma—pick from peppermint, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, or citrus. The signature massages also include a choice of aroma, and incorporate techniques such as Lomi Lomi, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and Thai table massage to make you as loose and relaxed as a stick-figure in a spy movie. Specialty add-ons, including hot lava shells or a toffee body salt scrub, only augment the indulgence.
When he began Rockstar Fit Camp, Ade Hazley used his experience gained in his nightclub-managing career to add excitement to an effective three-pronged workout formula that has garnered acclaim from his clients and the media.
His team of encouraging trainers includes industry experts. At nine locations, the instructors set up stations for resistance, cardio, and stability drills, with maneuvers that are adjustable for any strength level and sync with the group's desired cowbell tempo. Recurring fitness assessments and nutritional advice supplement the rhythm-fueled camp classes, instilling lasting habits for better health.
At Serenity Salon and Spa, exceptional service is second only to the services provided. The staff of massage therapists, skincare specialists, and stylists make sure that clients feel as relaxed and welcome during their treatments as they do beautiful when they're over. Fashionable cuts and vibrant colors come by way of hairstylists, who stay abreast of the latest hair trends by attending exhibitions, where they learn how to read celebrities' minds. Wraps and massages pander to the skin and body, and mani-pedis, employed by professional nail technicians, fill out the peripherals of the body and result in groomed and painted extremities.
Oaks, willows, and cedar elms at the nearby Arbor Hills Nature Preserve long to feel Tasha Perkins' touch. But Tasha's not in the tree-trimming business—she trims hair. From within Strip, Cut and Tease Salon come the sounds of split ends getting snipped and facial fuzz meeting its maker, wax. Those who follow these sounds to the source find glazes, highlights, natural color treatments by L’Oréal INOA, Brazilian blowouts, and finally Hairdreams extensions, the safe alternative to stealing a horse’s tail. Whether it graces young or old, guy or gal, all hair can feel the touch that Tasha's got.
