Karma Organic Spa is worth a visit for the scents alone. The interior smells of fresh lavender, mint, and geraniums, thanks to the spectrum of organic beauty products the team uses for their facials and mani-pedis. Patrons drawn in by the woodland scents often stay for pampering treatments.
One popular service? The Karma Milk and Honey mani-pedi, which starts with a warm milk bath followed by a housemade sugar scrub and a skin-softening honey mask. The final step, as in all the spa's mani-pedis, is a coat of soy-based polish from spa owner Nausil Zaheer's own line. His creations, which range from neutral to neon, eschew what Zaheer dubs the "big three" toxins, rendering them safe for pregnant women, many clients with allergies, and stylish trees.
Many twins grow up sharing similar interests: they might listen to the same music, favor the same foods, or blink at exactly the same time. Jamie and Jenn love to cut and style hair. In high school, they trained together under the Paul Mitchell curriculum, and then launched their careers immediately after graduation?testing their skills in the salons of Los Angeles and New York. Today, they still work together as the notoriously lively co-owners of Moxie Salon and Spa. Both are certified in La Bella hair and eyelash extensions. Jenn is a Wella-certified colorist, while Jamie is a recognized Motives makeup foundation specialist. Together, they lead a team of experienced stylists and colorists.
Surrounded by cream-colored interiors accented with earth-toned furniture and wood-framed mirrors, stylists trim hair with custom cuts and transform heads into sassy sculptures with Marylin Monroe?style curlers or Statue of Liberty?style bronze crowns. For many of these services, they use the salon's house brand of moisturizing and conditioning haircare products. And yet Moxie Salon and Spa's aestheticians don't limit their services to hair: they also bronze clients' skin with organic airbrush tanning and perform custom makeup applications using Motives products.
The stylists at Gisela's Beauty Center & Spa create fresh, modern looks with hair and makeup services. Their haircuts, color, and styles reinvent old dos or refine pre-existing styles. The center also staffs makeup artists who help emphasize clients' facial features and create looks that ties faces and coifs together. Clients can stop by for a simple trim or a complete makeover, or to prepare for a big night, such as a prom or a reunion of the class of '89's prom chaperones.
Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
A full-service salon, Salon Tre’dici offers a variety of hair, nail, massage, and beauty services. Stylists perform haircuts and keratin treatments, deep conditioning, and highlights, and nail technicians tend to fingers and toes. Other treatments include makeup application, facials, and massage therapy.
