Sacred Cross Horse Services founder Ashley Mason has transformed her extensive background in horseback riding and show jumping into a unique training program. At stables tucked away in redwood forests, students attend English-style riding lessons that focus on basic fundamentals such as grooming, tacking, and learning how to bond with horses. The lessons cater to students' individual needs and skill levels while simultaneously prioritizing their education and enjoyment. Sacred Cross also leads horse camps for children, as well as lessons designed to impart a sense of responsibility, teach empathy, and stop them from trying to lead the dog into a canter. Students are required to wear long pants and heeled shoes while riding.
At all 25 TNT Tanning locations throughout northeast Ohio, clients tan hides a healthy golden hue with the latest tanning beds and spray-tan booths. While at the salon, they can peruse shelves lined with skincare and tanning products such as bronzing powders, tanning lotions, and sunless sprays. To enhance the contouring tanning achieves, they can also swaddle themselves in a Fit body wrap designed to burn calories and reduce body fat.
For the last 25 years, the staff of skilled technicians at Wish Nails has groomed fingers and toes during manicures and pedicures using high quality nail care products. Nail technicians shape, groom, and affix miniature bowties to nails before finishing with vibrant OPI polish. Heavier-duty manicures include luxurious upgrades such as exfoliating sugar-scrub hand massages and chip-resistant shellac polish or gel acrylics.
Envy Salon's professional manicure mavens pamper and paint finger and toenails with a gentle touch and a razor's precision. A shellac manicure chases polish-chipping hooligans off fingernails' front lawns with a hardy gel-based nail varnish that forms a shiny protective seal around fingertip turrets. This hardy manicure lasts up to two weeks, minimizing nail-breakage accidents from working, driving, or thumb wars gone awry. Clients lounge in the salon's ultra-chic environment, letting the mellow earth-toned walls relax them as fingers and toes transform in front of elegantly framed mirrors. A hand and foot massage sheds stress and tames tension in the body's two most used limbs as toes take a break from stuffy shoes during a pedicure, soaking in the suds of professional-grade skincare products and debating the relative merits of toe socks.
Being a top-200 salon is no small feat—those that make the cut are among the very best in their state and Dante Lucci Salon is just that. Their spot on Salon Today’s list of the top 200 salons is just one of its many accolades. The award attests to the success Dante Lucci Salon has had in rendering haircuts with razor- and clipper-cutting techniques. But it also underscores the salon staff’s commitment to continuing their education in order to stay abreast of new styling techniques and the ways in which nuclear physics can be applied to highlights (none so far). Beyond hair work, technicians perform nail services to pamper digits and makeup artists use the preservative-free Mineral Mine line to give clients a new look. In line with their excellent service, they use only the best products as well including those by Kevin Murphy, Oribe, and Living Proof.
