At Table for One, owner and licensed aesthetician Wendy Rodriguez eschews standardizing her services and instead tailors every treatment to each client. During a massage, for example, her approach may range from relaxing the entire body to focusing on a particularly tight area that's impeding a guest's well-being. This fluidity of approach also characterizes her facials. She further personalizes all of services with add-ons, such as reflexology and aromatherapy in scents extracted from natural elements, such as honey. Within Headturner's Salon, Wendy maintains a relaxing studio anchored by a massage table draped in plush blankets.
Skin Blends’ aesthetician founder, Kathleen, began her business by selling skincare products created and tested by her staff of licensed aestheticians. This premium line of mineral makeup, cleansers, moisturizers, and scrubs works to leave all types of skin radiant, and, unlike bad standup routines, is never tested on animals. The products are often employed during Skin Blends’ slate of comprehensive skincare procedures, which include facial peels, exfoliation, and makeup-application lessons from a professional who’s worked with models from 417 Magazine.
The Cutting Edge Salon, owned and operated by a certified Redken Master Specialist, transforms tussled tresses into stylish 'dos. The savvy stylists pamper manes with services that range from cuts and styles to perms and colors. Chop off an obstinate cowlick or say adieu to split ends with a haircut and style ($18+ for children, $21+ for men, $33+ for women), or apply a dazzling look to locks with a coloring service ($63+ for full foils, $43+ for retouch). Like a naked-baby picture, hair is not always welcome everywhere. Remove unwanted hair with a lip waxing ($8) of full-face waxing ($24). The congenial coiffure crafters work with Pureology products, which are created from sulfate-free formulas, sunscreens, and antioxidants, as well as the time-tested Redken line.
Jamie Fleetwood liked working as an esthetician at Art Salon & Spa so much that she bought the beautifying business in 2010. Along with her staff of fellow estheticians, stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists, Fleetwood pampers her clients inside the newly renovated, sun-drenched space. Her aesthetic touch might only be matched by that space’s decor: it’s accented with sleek hardwood floors, verdant plants, and earth tones as warm as a made-for-TV movie about dogs that adopt other dogs. Among these scenic fixtures, the team renders a slate of services in the form of facials, Shellac manicures, therapeutic massages, and highlights.
