Stylists sculpt modern manes amid the orange and lime-green walls of Tease Salon, LLC’s vibrant interior. While some guests wait on a plush L-shaped couch, stylists crop others’ mops at spacious stations, following the experienced lead of owner and 10-year industry veteran Sara M. Butcher. Undulating silver-framed mirrors let patrons admire their cut-in-progress or ask their reflection for advice on bang length. Staffers also revamp visages with waxing, facials, and laser teeth whitening, and a skilled massage therapist breaks up tension in a private massage room.
The eco-minded team at Island Day Spa nourishes skin with naturally derived formulas that demonstrate respect for the environment.

Microdermabrasion and microcurrent therapy combat fine lines or skin laxity, and Aveda's enzyme- and nutrient-rich products add curative benefits to aromatherapy massages and reflexology sessions.

The soothing spa treatments at The Beach House Day Spa bring seaside serenity indoors to private rooms painted the colors of sand and surf. The dry heat inside a far infrared sauna is designed to drive out toxins and rev up circulation, burning up to 700 calories over the course of a 30-minute session. Clients’ faces protrude from the sauna’s half-cylindrical canopy throughout the treatment, allowing noses to sniff wafting aromatherapy scents and mouths to heckle skin to sweat faster. Opt for the Her Mystical facial, and spa professionals will simultaneously pamper cheeks with quality cleansers, treatment creams, and exfoliants, giving them a fresh, dewy glow to match well-warmed extremities. The languid yet sure-handed strokes of the Swedish massage work to engender a sense of relaxation, warmth, and well-being, much like a good night’s sleep in a pile of meatballs. Advanced massage digs deeper to extract nagging pain, and prenatal massage targets the specific painful points experienced by mothers-to-be.
Massage therapist Johnny has been de-stressing clients for 10 years. He specializes in deep-muscle therapy, which alleviates muscle tension and pain due to repetitive-motion injuries using pressure ranging from firm to deep. He also customizes each of his massages to fit each client’s particular injuries and ideal amount of pressure. To further relax clients, Johnny incorporates aromatherapy, plays soft music, and assures them that tax season is months away. And when not kneading clients, he teaches other massage therapists the tricks of his trade.
