Since 2002, aesthetician Lori Ivey has helped clients reach their full beauty potential through skin treatments, massage, and nutrition and wellness advice. She bolsters this whole-body approach by using organic Sjolie and Rhonda Allison products during skincare services, such as sunless tanning and her specialty facials. From within her private room at Selah Day Spa & Salon, she also helps clients ward off signs of aging with advanced LED treatments, which are designed to stimulate collagen production. As a trained certified massage therapist, Lori can ease tension from the muscles and mind with customized massages that incorporate traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques.
As part of the salon team at Selah—which comes from the Hebrew word for "pause"—Corinna Rose performs an extensive selection of salon treatments supported by research on the most current styles and techniques. She specializes in cuts and color, and can adjust hair hues with all-over color gloss or meticulously placed highlights. There are also texturizing treatments, such as body waves and keratin infusions, as well as weave and extension applications that are more en vogue than a powdered wig or a salted cornrow.
A pinched nerve. A tweaked muscle. An out-of-whack joint. For most people, these ailments represent an inevitable facet of the aging process; for massage therapist Karin Ward, they represent an opportunity for improvement. No matter what brings clients into her corner of Sunset Wellness Spa, Karin uses her sessions to jumpstart the healing process with therapeutic bodywork learned over a 13-year career. Whether she's easing nagging pain with gentle Swedish strokes or targeting deeper discomfort with the help of soothing hot stones, Karin delivers treatments that leave her clients rested, relaxed, and ready to face the day's next challenge.
Traditionally, the exclamation “ooh la la!” is reserved for moments that blend luxuriousness and surprise. Comments like that often fill the air at Ooh La La Salon and Day Spa, where a team of stylists and technicians delivers pampering treatments that span the entire beauty spectrum. At 14 hair stations, stylists help clients part with unwanted length and say hello to new hues. Treatment rooms provide privacy during massages and facials, and a small fleet of nail stations set in alcoves welcomes the polish-illuminating light of nearby chandeliers. Guests can also top off looks with cosmetic services including makeup applications and airbrush tans.
Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
Nine types of facials await visitors at Esthetics by Dawn—enough to treat virtually every skin type. Purifying facials clear out excess oil in treating breakout-prone skin, and anti-aging facials ward off wrinkles by restoring skin’s elasticity. This menu of facials lines up alongside waxing treatments for men and women, stress-relief aromatherapy massages, and hydrating hand masks.
Long before she opened Spa Lux, Sara Bagley braved the demands of the retail world, never letting the long and hectic hours distract her smile and sincere appreciation for her customers’ needs. A spark of curiosity led her to the Federico Beauty Institute, where her interests in skincare bloomed into passions as she soaked up training in facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion.
Though her career has since moved away from retail, Sara remains ever in tune with her customers' desires. Her cheery disposition and enthusiasm for skincare are equally embodied in Spa Lux, a chic salon and spa where she and her staff draw on their collective wisdom to dote upon complexions and brush away the nests of tattooed sparrows.
Sara's customer-first philosophy is nowhere more evident than in the spa’s roster of facials, each of which the aestheticians customize to meet the client's skin type. Image Skincare products lead the charge of antioxidants and skin brighteners, and Clarisonic’s Sonic Skin Cleansing System promotes healthy tones while reversing inverted dimples.
