With a complimentary glass of wine in hand, Innovations Salon & Spa?s guests settle in to enjoy one of the many beautifying services that salon owner Donna has perfected over 14 years in business and two decades in the industry. Donna and her staff of 15 talented professionals specialize in hairstyling services that range from traditional cuts and coloring to innovative keratin straightening treatments that eliminate frizz and tame unmanageable curls. They wield L'oreal products; the infusions of antioxidants, macadamia-nut oil, and wheat protein in these professional formulas fortify each strand with enough strength to bench-press a bobby pin.
The scents of peppermint, lavender, chamomile, and eucalyptus fill the air in the spa, where therapists soothe muscles and senses alike during aromatherapy massages. Nearby, aestheticians exfoliate and refresh aging complexions with Bioelements products, remove unwanted hair with swipes of warm wax, and apply makeup to the faces of aspiring prom queens and identity thieves.
Salon & Spa De Crist owner Janel Schick encourages her staff of more than 10 skilled technicians to be "straight shooters" with their clients. As mentioned in her bio, Janel thinks keeping things honest is the best way to ensure clients receive the right treatments and most flattering hair trends for them. To help brighten and nourish complexions with facials and peels, the spa's aestheticians rely on Repêchage and Bioelements skincare products. On the salon floor, stylists expertly design flattering cuts and color for any hair type with Schwarzkopf, Goldwell hair-color, Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Aquage haircare products. The spa's massage therapist helps relax tight muscles with five massage modalities, and an on-staff permanent-makeup artist skillfully tattoos eyeliner and lip liner, and fills in brows that keep scurrying away.
Inspired by Ayurveda's holistic health principles and fueled by Aveda plant products, Tridosha Salon and Spa summons inner beauty to the surface with custom hair and skin services. In the salon, stylists sculpt locks to frame faces and downplay extra ears. Aveda coloring products use botanical oils that condition the hair, create natural hues, and develop a healthy-looking shine. Skin treatments incorporate everything from warm seaweed to rosemary-mint essences to purify pores, smooth away rough spots, and awaken the senses. Aromatherapy scents waft over massage clients as they absorb Swedish and deep-tissue strokes, which can be enhanced with an aromatic scalp-massage add-on.
Salon Envy's staff cossets hair, skin, and nails with natural Aveda products and expert techniques. Stylists imbue hair with highlights and alluring cuts, smooth strands with Brazilian blowouts and Juvexin, and twirl curls into updos for special occasions such as weddings and proms. As aestheticians exfoliate, massage, polish, and imprint appendages in Grauman's cement, water swirls in a hexagonal pedicure tub and guests recline in a plush leather armchair. The beauty buffs also enliven complexions with facials, eyelash extensions, whisker-slaying electrolysis, and massages.
Inside BodyNSpa, wrought-iron shelves proffer jewelry, body butters, and bath oils amid peach walls and an Old-World wall clock. Private, clutter-free massage rooms house therapists who craft custom massage and spa services beneath dim lighting, with the aid of soft microfiber blankets and several cartoon-animal companions. When they aren't kneading sinews with Swedish, hot-stone, and therapeutic techniques, they’re defining contours with body wraps and daubing faces with soothing masks. They also perform airbrush tanning to give pallid epidermises a bronze glow.
As a member of the styling team at Salon Par, Stephanie B. takes the time to listen to her clients before pointing them toward specific haircuts or color treatments. She's always honest and helpful with her suggestions, but her personal specialty lies in keratin treatments that rely on Brazilian Blowout's award-winning formulas. These semi-permanent treatments relax curls to make hair more manageable than a crossword puzzle in which every clue relates to an intimate detail about your life.
