Licensed aesthetician and The Spa at Centrex owner Yvonne Semente runs a one-woman glamour show, transforming clients with luscious eyelash extensions, facial treatments, and waxing services. Eyelashes are Yvonne's specialty, and she has spent almost every day for the past three years painstakingly applying her clients' lavish new fringe lash by lash, discarding any falsie that doesn't meet her rigorous standards for flirtation fluttering. As the spa’s only employee, Yvonne also funnels her 10 years of aesthetic expertise into acne and anti-aging facial treatments, chemical peels, waxing, and microdermabrasion.
Lash Out! helps clients gussy up their peepers with synthetic lashes that add natural-looking length and fullness for as long as three weeks without a touch-up treatment. The salon’s selection of lashes includes up to eight different lengths, three thicknesses, and two degrees of curl, allowing visitors to customize their lids' appearance. By affixing each lash with irritant-free, waterproof glue, the aestheticians ensure that clients can still participate in any number of aquatic endeavors, including swimming, showering, and bobbing for office supplies. In addition to eyelash extensions, the aestheticians offer their own signature services, which can include waxing services, glycolic peels, and facials with Jan Marini Skin Research products and fruit-enzyme masks.
The swirling suns embossed on the golden walls of Sole Sano Airbrush Tanning Salon remind you of what you’re getting: a natural-looking glow. They also call to mind what you’re not getting: harmful UV rays.
The salon’s private rooms don’t contain a single tanning bed or inaccurate depiction of the sun wearing sunglasses. Rather, the certified technicians focus exclusively on airbrush tanning. They chat in the studio with patrons during skin evaluations and customize DHA-based solutions to match each client’s unique coloring before misting them evenly across the full body.
At The Woodhouse, relaxation begins upon each client's arrival in the spa's dedicated Quiet Room. A fluffy robe drapes around their shoulders and mugs of loose-leaf tea warm their lips as they await the start of their services. The spa's product selection reflects a similar attention to detail: staffers fill the shelves with natural, organic, and wild-crafted products, none of which are tested on animals. They also go the extra mile to include small extras with each session, such as home-care recommendations after facial treatments and foot-cleansing with each massage.
Though Salon at the Station has a warm, small-town atmosphere, its hairdressers deliver big-city hairstyles. Owner Karen Kowitski helms a team of experienced stylists well-versed in metropolitan cuts, colors, and styles. As a L’Oreal Professional salon, Salon at the Station boasts coloring services that can lighten, darken, or tie-dye hair with the use of L’Oreal ammonia-free hair color. The versatile staff can also meticulously groom nails, wax off unwanted hair, and airbrush tans on winter-pale skin.
The stylists at Serenity Hair Lounge are big fans of a fashionable contradiction. Inside their appointed workspace, rustic wood floors and muted, faux-marbled walls provide a chic contrast to the polished hairstyles and vibrant hair colors that parade out the door. To really make manes shine though, stylists can tame unruly frizz with a Brazilian blowout that leaves locks smooth, soft, and less likely to attach itself to dryer sheets.
