The staff at Plaza 101 Salon and Spa helps clients look their best from crown to toenail, cultivating elegant looks amid stately surroundings of exposed brick and mahogany furnishings. In addition to trimming wayward strands, the stylists can invent a dramatic new look by using highlights or lowlights to add depth and dimension. The salon's massage therapist designs custom sessions that can incorporate a mélange of Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, myofascial-release, and reiki therapies in order to address each individual's needs. While the nail technicians beautify digits with the rejuvenating benefits of paraffin dips and Dead Sea salt, Dr. Debra Mowery steps in to offer physician-supervised cosmetic procedures, including injectable dermal fillers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion sessions that can improve the skin's tone, texture, and bioluminescent capabilities.
In another life, the aestheticians of Brighter Image Day Spa were probably chefs. The spa's service list reads more like a restaurant menu, divided into "Appetizers" and "Entrees" sections ripe with ingredients that could be pulled from any gourmet's kitchen. Nail technicians sprinkle Dead Sea salt onto hands and feet to exfoliate skin and prevent pasta from sticking to it, and peach, mango, and sage infuse a selection of elaborate pedicures. In the spa, aestheticians nourish bodies with neroli body scrubs and minty back facials that empty grime-stuffed pores. After their treatments, patrons can shop the spa's own line of cosmetics, which integrate vitamins and sun protection into a spectrum of vivid colors for the eyes, lips, and face.
Skin Therapy by Victoria’s master aesthetician Victoria Plymale uses a range of facial therapies to crack open dried-skin cocoons and reveal the youthful Wilford Brimley inside. A diamond microdermabrasion ($85 value) resurfaces skull coverings by improving texture, removing dead and flaking skin cells, and stimulating the production of young, fresh skin cells using facial fertilizers and collagen boosters. Microdermabrasion can also reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines, acne scars, and bite marks from ravenous houseplants. In the accompanying 30-minute vitamin C mini facial ($30 value), a customized facial mask soothes, hydrates, and removes lifeless skin cells from the face using tiny tongs, resulting in a radiant glow.
Salon at Studio E's stylists wield Big Sexy Hair products as they cut and color manes in a black-and-white boutique salon peppered with scarlet accents. A large photo of Marilyn Monroe pays homage to old Hollywood glamour as clients declare their style preferences during consultations. Sebastian Laminates Cellophanes gloss glazes hair with lustrous, translucent hues, and deep-conditioning treatments call upon the most appropriate brand to soothe frizz-stricken strands and render them as smooth as Barry White's pet dolphin.
The team at Corporate Image Barber Shop love their clients. That's apparent from just a quick glance at the barber shop's Facebook page, which is packed with snapshots of grinning guests and stylists. The staff can shampoo and snip men's hair for fresh new looks, or pamper with hot-towel shaves.
