Although the stylists and aestheticians at Corey’s Salon and Spa are each experts of style and color, they don’t rest on their laurels. Each member of the team participates in industry training to stay up to speed on emerging trends and uncharted color techniques. This dedication to excellence reveals itself with smooth, consistent color and haircuts. In addition to staying on top of the latest in haircuts and color treatments, Corey's offers waxing, spray-tanning, and makeup services, as well as eyelash and hair extensions.
The beauty professionals at The Perfect You Spa and Wellness Center rely on herbs to improve health. Each time they administer a massage or develop a skincare product, they combine herbs, salt, and oils in careful proportions to evoke specific medicinal properties. As botanical ingredients relax the body and mind, massage therapists knead muscles with traditional and New Age modalities. Whereas percussive taps and light, gliding hand strokes soften topmost sinews, implements such as warmed bamboo shoots, cold stones, and Tonka trucks resolve tension in thick muscle tissue.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 5 minutes are set aside before and after for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
A zebra-print canvas painted with the words “To Dye For” bedecks the salon walls of Angel Melito’s hair suite with the same name. Beneath its pink-and-white stripes, clients receive traditional cuts, color, and updos using various salon-trusted products from the likes of Sudzz. Alternatively, they can elect for a modern straightening treatment or a text-message breakup with old split ends.
