DayDream Oasis Salon & Spa's recently renovated digs host relaxing interludes from workday stress and the wearisome passage of time. Natural and organic Bioelements products replenish visages ahead of upcoming giraffe staring contests during anti-aging facials. Aromatherapy massages employ high-quality essential oils to evoke relaxation. On the salon side, savvy stylists update coifs with a full array of haircuts, coloring, and permanent curls and straightening.
Heather Holiday loves styling, especially when she can help a client gain confidence with a fresh new do. Drawing on more than eight years of experience, Heather can refine your look with a simple bang trim or revamp your mop with confident layers and color treatments. Outside of hair, Studio 500 also offers a mélange of spa services, from facial waxing and nailcare to restorative massages.
Even as a 4-year-old growing up in Honolulu, Vee Osborne was drawn to Hawaiian shamanism and the Huna philosophy, which stresses the balance of the mind, body, and spirit through one?s actions. Her early passion for healing others led her down the path to becoming a hypnotherapist, reiki master, and ordained minister before she funneled her devotion to creating harmony and guiding others toward wellness into Plaza West Massage & Day Spa. Here, clouds of gentle music and the scent of essential oils greet her guests, who slip into robes and sip wine as they unwind. And Vee?s Hawaiian roots remain readily apparent, inspiring the spa?s potted palms, bamboo massages, pi?a-colada scrubs, and wall-sized pictures that bring Pacific beaches to Kansas.
Vee?s healing services go beyond relaxation, though. Her team of massage therapists kneads aching muscles with Swedish, trigger-point, and deep-tissue modalities, deepening their knot-fighting effect with volcanic stones and essential oils. After a body wrap with Dead Sea salts or a glycolic peel, guests can visit the two-tiered sauna or extend their rejuvenation with an energy-balancing reiki session. The spa also delves into treatments that rely on electronic frequencies, such as a tri-phasic resonator, which fights cellulite, or quantum electro-ionization, which aims to diminish blemishes rather than cover them up with white-out. Before heading home, clients can pick up body and facial products from Vee?s eponymous line, such as Island Essence hair products, complete with tropical scents.
After an eight-year tenure as an employee in a spa, master aesthetician Danie Hawkins set out to become her own boss. Now at the helm of Flaunt Esthetics, she tackles all skin issues put before her, from acne, to fine lines, to hyper-pigmentation. She also applies daytime and nighttime makeup, and is a master of popular looks including smokey eyes. But it's her custom eyelash extensions that have really put Danie on the map?her work designing custom eye fringe has even earned her the nickname "Queen of Lashes". By combining short and long single lashes with cluster lashes, she's able to create a look that is at once glamorous and natural, adding length and volume that lasts up to four weeks or longer for those who have tape.

During a 36-year career in aesthetics, Diva Lashes' Patricia has developed an affinity for beauty techniques that require absolute precision. Patricia is board-certified in micro pigmentation, or the art of permanent makeup, and relies upon a digital tattoo machine to quickly and accurately render the texture of eyebrow hair or line an eye with minimal discomfort. Many styles of eyelash extensions similarly reflect her enjoyment of meticulous handwork, as each tendril must be adhered one-by-one in order for it to blend in with the natural lash line and hang on for up to three months without the encouragement of a kitten simultaneously dangling from the follicles. Over the past two decades, Patricia has honed her ability for evaluating her client's skin, and now creates custom refresher courses with SkinCeuticals products, vitamin C serums, and facial peels. She shares her decades of expertise and passion for beauty through the American Cancer Society's Look Good?Feel Better program, which connects oncology patients with aestheticians.
