Under the sage direction of Dr. Brian Young, the staff at Beauty Island Spa cultivates healthy complexions, eases aches, and whittles silhouettes with spa services for men and women. The spa’s island theme is reflected in its relaxation-inducing treatments and tropical atmosphere fostered by décor including peach-hued walls, plush white leather chairs, and palm trees inhabited by shipwrecked families. Aestheticians put their beautifying know-how to use as they administer innovative treatments such as LED therapy to help diminish the symptoms of rosacea, acne, or aging.
The salon's facials earned a second-place award from WDVI’s Cityvoter last year, and Elysian’s staff can spruce up beauty-seekers from head to toe. The Day Away package commences with a European facial, during which a highly trained aesthetician employs Académie Scientifique products imported from Paris. The personalized, relaxing treatment eliminates dry patches, brightens the visage, and reverses the appearance of aging much more easily than swinging a sledgehammer in an attempt to open a portal to the past. After a manicure and pedicure pampers uncouth appendages with top-notch nail renovation, a skilled stylist mentors troubled tresses, convincing pesky flyaways and stuck-up cowlicks to lie down. Guests may use this deal in one splurge or spread it out over multiple visits.
La Dolce Vita Spa fills its ranks with beauty specialists that combine their specialized expertise to devise a full-body menu of beautifying treatments. Hands and feet find renewal with a variety of therapies, from cooling dollops of spearmint scrub to the ache-melting warmth of hot stones. Ten facials cater to different complexions, with regimes that encourage elasticity with seaweed extract or calm active blemishes with sulfur masks. Meanwhile, stylists untangle tresses with shampoos and cuts, and spa therapists loosen muscles' fancy half-windsors with half- or full-hour massages.
Comfy pedicure chairs nestle guests during each of Jolie Nails & Spa’s signature mani-pedi treatments, initiating relaxing vibes as technicians scrub the miles off of heels and polish toes in colorful hues. The nail-centric salon augments this classic service with a variety of relaxing and stylish upgrades, such as coating nails with long-lasting Shellac polish, bolstering length with acrylic extensions, or hiding lacquer-scratching car keys in batches of fresh cement. Staffers also flaunt their aesthetic skills in a variety of waxing treatments, purifying European facials, and lash-magnifying extensions.
In 1989, Glitz Salons' founder decided to open a salon with a philosophy rooted in working with others to make clients feel good. Twenty years later, the staff at Glitz Salons still mans their stations and lives out that goal. When not performing services such as haircuts and waxing, the crew at Glitz Salons gives back to its community by helping local high schools put on prom fashion shows and hosting fundraising events. A cohesive, supportive unit, the salons' stylists and aestheticians receive continuous encouragement to express their own creativity and implement innovative ideas into their workday. This freedom allows customers to reap the benefits of a staff that thinks outside the box, paints the box, then folds it into a mesmerizing mobile sculpture.
Stepping into Acapulco Tan is like hugging a sunbeam. Bright yellow walls surround the interior and lead guests into tanning rooms full of standup and lie-down beds. Along the way, Acapulco Tan's staff members advise visitors based on individual skin type, helping them select the perfect amount of tanning time at one of five available levels. For guests who wave away UV rays, the staff applies DHA spray tans by hand, ensuring smooth, even coverage. They also employ red-light therapy to target wrinkles or help customers face their phobia of getting briefly stopped in traffic.
