Paradise Salon and Day Spa offers visitors a chance to take a vacation from everyday stress with a menu of full-body beautification services. Dry hair can take a permanent hiatus thanks to the salon's intense haircare treatment, which nourishes parched strands with a formula rich in plant and silk proteins. Dry skin is likewise tackled with a hydrating and brightening caviar facial or an aromatherapy body wrap that swaddles skin in cotton sheets after brushing it with soothing essential oils. If a change in scenery won't fit into your hectic schedule, change what you see in the mirror instead by booking a complete makeup makeover or sprucing up lifeless strands with luminous highlights. Waxing services provide all the fun of getting ready for the beach without the itchy sand or annoying sunshine, and mani-pedis extend sandal season year-round to show off colorful coats of regular, french-style, or shellac polish.
"At the age of 16, my chemistry teacher inspired my love of chemistry by teaching me how to make beauty products," say Cindy Tawiah, eponymous founder of Diva by Cindy. Cindy has garnered praise from a variety of outlets, including Tyra Banks's fashion and beauty website, for her line of natural, alcohol-free hair products. Her products have also received praise and awards from typeF and Shecky's for detangling hair in a swift and stylish manner. Cindy's staff employs her signature line of healthful shampoos, conditioners, and 'do balms during a variety of hair services. As 'dos get done, other team members work to treat the whole body, from the aestheticians who smooth and renew skin with waxes and facials to massage therapists who knead away stresses or recalibrate energy levels with reflexology and reiki techniques.
The therapists at Mommie Massage Center focus their skills on mothers, expectant mothers, and other women who endure their fair share of stress. Their specialty—prenatal massage—relieves tension in the lower back and hips, where moms-to-be tend to experience the most pain. The therapists also offer foot and leg treatments that can alleviate water retention and reduce the appearance of varicose veins. Often they rely on special add-ons—aromatherapy scents, hot stones—to make the treatments that much more relaxing. In a bit of synergy, Mommie Massage Center is located inside of Little Bo Peep, Inc., where sonographers create 3D ultrasound images that tell mothers if their babies will in fact be born in three dimensions or will simply exist as a straight line on a sliver of graph paper.
