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." Her team of makeup artists bring with them their own distinctions, including Catherine, a former model and theatrical costume designer, and Casey, a makeup and hair department head for E! 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.
Behind an exposed brick wall, clients at David Andrew Hair Salon & Skin Care Center perch on black styling chairs as stylists clip their locks. The skilled staff does more than basic haircuts, though; their service menu includes full highlights, deep-conditioning treatments, smoothing keratin treatments, and hair extensions. Equally as skilled are the aestheticians who man the salon’s skincare branch, where clients seek out waxing services, chemical peels, and intricate facials such as the collagen facial, which tightens the skin’s surface to fight the signs of aging.
Owner Deborah Conyers dedicates her spa to total-body relaxation, offering personalized massages and herb-enhanced skincare services. Therapists customize the massage menu to each individual's particular needs, soothing pinched nerves or vestigial wings with gentle kneading techniques, the application of deep pressure, or strokes that work to repair aching musculature after injuries or strains.
The salon’s aestheticians are well versed in the methods of reviving dry or aging complexions, drawing on an arsenal of anti-aging microcurrent technology, skin-resurfacing treatments, and a menu of facials and peels to address skin imperfections. Manicures and acupuncture treatments fill out the spa’s skin-centric service menu, working to deepen relaxation and help needles to get over their fear of humans.
Brandon Massage Studio's skilled massage therapists relieve muscle tension and achy tendons within a tranquil environment. Swedish massages relax the muscles as long, medium-pressure strokes work to stimulate circulation and bring clients to a state of relaxation akin to napping in a cashmere hammock. Alternatively, the Thai yoga massage incorporates gentle stretching to loosen rigid muscles through a sequence of simulated yoga positions. Both massages are performed with a blend of aromatic oils, which repay olfactory systems for a lifetime of fishing trips.
Armed with products from the likes of American Crew and Essie, experienced staff members style hair and paint toes, along with a variety of other services. At The Comfort Zone Spa & Salon, it’s all about attention to detail. Technicians soften hands with citrus-scented essential oils during spa manicures, and they stimulate cells with oxygenating facials or deep-tissue massages.
Cheerful red armchairs sit in the reception area, where wood floors and an abundance of natural light lets guests imagine what it must have been like to live without electricity. In the bright-orange pedicure room, guests lounge in sleek black thrones, resting their feet in soaking tubs.
Elite Day Spa aims to be a one-stop beauty and relaxation spot for its guests—and with services ranging from specialty eyebrow threading to massages and mani-pedis, it has plenty of beauty- and relaxation-enhancing possibilities to offer. A wide range of massage therapies caters to a variety of needs and includes hot-stone, deep-tissue, and couples massages. Amber-seaweed body wraps help detoxify the body while stimulating skin cells with the help of vitamin- and amino-acid-infused marine clays. Likewise, manicures take nails to the next level with the help of ingredients such as peppermint, pure honey, peach, and ginseng, plus a champagne-and-rose option.
