Sip champagne while your feet soak in a warm whirlpool bath. Relax as a hydrating mask softens your skin and a massage loosens your muscles. Feel the tingle of raw epson salts and essential oils as they rejuvenate your skin during a full-body scrub. All of the above?and plenty more?is possible at Studio J Salon & Day Spa, a full-service beauty haven where nothing takes a backseat to relaxation.
That's not to say that relaxation is all this place has to offer. A team of hairstylists offers cuts and coloring treatments along with conditioning services that give locks some added oomph. And aestheticians draw from dozens of facials to address chronic skin issues such as acne, dryness, and seasonal molting. Speaking of skin, the spa even features an experienced tattoo artist who can create custom designs to complete a total makeover.
The sun seems to shine even within Tuscan Salon’s walls, which stay true to their name with earthy tones and a painted Roman column enshrouded by leafy branches. The decor is hardly the only element that recalls a relaxing Italian retreat, however. While the full-service salon’s aestheticians and therapists pamper clients with facials and massages, stylists snip away at hair and the hemlines of overlong togas. On the other side of the expansive salon, spa technicians gently swipe away unwanted fuzz with body sugaring, the ancient practice of removing hair with an all-natural sugar paste.
Amid ocean-blue walls splashed with tropical orange accents and beach-themed décor, Salon Makai's seasoned stylists relax, nourish, and refine harried heads with expert precision. Patrons sidle up to a shampoo station to let stylists shower heads in warm, soothing water and slather strands with a rich deep-conditioning serum. Focused fingers then massage the scalp, soothing cranial surfaces stressed out from months of tight ponytails and burrowing hair gophers. Finally, scissors snip away old growth and sculpt a sophisticated new cut, after which clients can return home to style tresses to suit their tastes or bask in a professional blow-dry and style for an additional $20.
The friendly staff at Swanky! lull clients' meddling mind matter with a soothing touch paralleled only by the voices of NPR. Chatter drifts between beauty beds and chairs, creating an ambience warmed further by precision, style, and experience.
Arabella Vitall Day Spa's staff cossets clients inside a cozy spa flooded with natural light while pampering cranium carriers and pavement-pounding phalanges. Opt for one of the exfoliating facials to remove dead skin and grocery lists scribbled on foreheads ($89–$120) or one of the back-bolstering massages to banish pernicious kinks and knots ($45–$259). After stuffing a dozen turkeys with fistfuls of sand, hands can be caressed with one of the soothing manicures ($22–$65) and toes can be rejuvenated with a pampering pedicure ($22–$119). With each opulent option, revitalized visitors can enjoy complimentary fresh fruit, tea, and purified water, or further relax in the eucalyptus-steam room or dry sauna.
Guests to The Cut & Color Company are greeted by complimentary beverages, sleek club-like décor, and a staff of trained stylists ready to whip waiting wisps into sharp, chic shape.
