Salon Estetica's multitalented staff coaxes inner beauty to the surface of the skin with a menu of facials that employs green-minded Aveda products and practices. The soothing Elemental Nature facial is safe for all skin types and commences with an in-depth skincare analysis and consultation that are used to devise a custom plan to equalize asymmetrical epidermises and balance lopsided auras. A skilled aesthetician then swaddles faces with a solution comprising plant and flower ingredients that work diligently to unclog pores, balance skin tone, infuse moisture, and remove forgotten notes-to-self scrawled on the forehead.
Studio 210 Salon founder Sohelia has more than 15 years of experience behind her, but still she shines the spotlight on her coworkers, gushing on the staff page about her salon's "house full of energetic and enthusiastic hair stylists."

Entertainment. The entire beauty team, working in conjunction with massage expert Kim, devotes themselves to subtle, feature-flattering makeovers or aesthetic overhauls on par with Picasso's shift from his blue period to his burndt-sienna phase.
The trained staff at Asonipse Spa & Salon—an Aveda-concept salon—revamp patrons’ appearances and foster full-body relaxation via a menu of pampering services. Throughout the day, the hairstyling crew bustles about their stations doling out haircuts, all of which include aromatherapy, a scalp-ritual treatment, and a makeup-refresh service. Aestheticians host pre-treatment consultations with patrons to create a facial customized to address individual skin types and problem spots, and a variety of manicures and pedicures soothe hands and feet aching from challenging smug sloths to hang-offs. Staffers also perform custom pre-natal, Swedish, and deep-tissue massages to erase muscular tension, along with waxing treatments to evict unwanted hair from bodies and faces.
Under crisp, clean sheets in Serene Bodyworks studio, clients await the expert of hands of a licensed massage therapist Anita Griffin, whose firm fingers endeavor to activate endorphins, improve skin and circulation, and alleviate aches. Clutching today's Groupon, new clients can receive 60 minutes of any massage on Serene Bodyworks' buffet, including deep-tissue massage, Swedish massage, lymphatic drainage, and spicy beets. The deep-tissue (or neuromuscular) massage targets specific aching areas, using focused pressure to help ease pain and tension. As if dealing with play dough, the Swedish massage molds and manipulates muscles into relaxed torpor, often roughly resembling small dinosaurs. Light pressure and soft pumping movements help stimulate the lymphatic system during a manual lymphatic drainage, jump-starting metabolism and subduing swelling.
