The husband-wife team behind Salon Gianna founded the high-ceilinged spa space to fund research for rare childhood diseases after their daughter—the salon's namesake—was diagnosed with a congenital cell-growth disorder. The salon's aestheticians pamper guests with a range of services and use the proceeds to support work at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. Éminence organic facials nourish skin with ingredients both potent and natural, such as the clear-skin facial's probiotic yogurt mask or the paprika and fruit-acid exfoliant of the anti-aging facial.
Invigorating scrubs and body wraps extend skincare to the entire physique, reenergizing skin as much as jogging through a coffee storm. Massage therapists lull tense muscles into a relaxed state with deep-tissue and Swedish techniques, and nail technicians dress up hands and feet with chic Rockstar toes or long-lasting shellac polish. Stylists can customize tresses with new hues and cuts or remove unwanted strands during waxing sessions.
A haircut shouldn't be considered a chore. It should be thought of as a re-inventive experience, an open opportunity for a new appearance, and a chance to lose the nickname of
"Mr. Shaggy McHirsute." But most of all, a haircut should be relaxing. A proper dosage of pampering, but not too frilly, with just a touch of friendly chit-chat to go with the cut. At PhatHeads Barbershop, kids and adults can kick back as their coifs are carefully shaped by a crew of experienced barbers. That old-fashioned style rings truest with PhatHeads hot-towel shaves, which couple warm cream and a straight-razor shave to leave necks and cheeks smoother than a baby's bowling ball.
Privato Salon & Spa is filled with sleek, modern decor, from plush leather chairs to long wooden tables, highlighted by pops of green and purple. Amiee's nail services mirror the salon's lustrous, contemporary atmosphere. She exfoliates feet with Bella Luccè scrubs and pampers them with hot-towel treatments during spa pedicures and combines crushed rice, sea kelp, green tea, coconut, and lemongrass to soothe feet during Touch of Thai pedicures. Hands and fingers aren't left out, either. After shaping, trimming, and buffing them, Amiee decorates digits with vibrant lacquer from butter London or chip-free polish from Gelish.
The team at Endless Summer Salon can't actually make the summer last forever, but they can do the next best thing. Their spray tans imbue skin with a bronze hue no matter the season, and their specially formulated Shellac manicures make nails shine like 10 tiny suns. A stylist can help you achieve that windswept beach look with a professional cut and color treatment, and the salon's resident waxing expert can whisk away unwanted hair in minutes.
The stylists at Hair Fusion love a good makeover. They create fresh new looks with haircuts, highlights, lowlights, and makeup applications, making adjustments that match the style of each individual client. Their Keraluxe smoothing services take a cut and style to the next level by making tresses sleek and shiny. Staff can also transform locks with hair extensions and perms; even a simple bang trim can dramatically update a style.
Agape, derived from Greek and connoting spiritual love, is a fitting name for Joseph Ramirez's massage business. At Agape of Massage, located inside The Look Salon, he soothes bodily tension and stress with mindful strokes and deep-reaching kneads, promoting inner peace and calm in the process. Custom massages are attuned to individual pains, allowing clients to step out of the salon feeling especially refreshed.
