This Aveda salon is supervised by Dawn Caldwell and Kristy Heron, who have more than three decades of salon- and spa-industry experience between them. Dawn specializes in hair color, much like a chameleon perched on a Sasquatch's shoulder, and Kristy is a massage therapist, who also wields a master?s in acupuncture to free up disruptive energy blockages. The duo teams up with a staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, and stylists to treat guests to facials, acupuncture, massages, and salon treatments.
The staff of Today's Image Tanning keeps customers of any skin type and tone comfy with high- and low-pressure beds in both reclining and vertical configurations. Gold-plate your entire surface with 8 to 20 minutes of exposure, or enjoy a UV-free Mystic Tanning session. Using three levels of spray and instant bronzer, a skilled technician will create an instant "fresh from the beach/shipwreck" look without requiring users to build a base tan or a base camp. Today's Image Tanning maintains a tranquil atmosphere that is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 134.3% spa. Relax before or after your tan or skin rejuvenation and chat with one of its friendly, knowledgeable staff members. They'll come up with a tanning regimen that emulates C-3PO's gilded hue without transforming you into the prissy comic relief of your social circle.
The Boulevard Salon & Spa deploys experienced stylists to deftly slice hairs from men's chins, cheeks, and heads. Guests recline in barber chairs while pre-shave oil and hot lather swaddle mugs in toasty foam, giving visages a glimpse into the brief life of a cappuccino. A keen-edged straight razor slides along the face to efficiently remove stubble. In the Executive shave, the razor doubles back for a second voyage against the grain, smoothing skin with a thoroughness comparable to double Zamboni treatments for ice rinks or double vacuumings of molting tropical birds. Frosty aftershave and an ice-cold towel seal pores and soothe sensitive dimples, and a face massage dissipates tension from overworked, skeptical eyebrows. Alternately, patrons can opt for a haircut and single shave that foregoes the razor's return visit. A consultation ensures that head bristles will be cropped to specifications using Kenra and L'Oreal professional products, and a hot towel—aided by a head-and-neck massage—steams shoulders into a relaxed slump.
After years of struggling with acne as a teen, Joyce Brown was unsure of how to properly care for her skin. One day, when she was in her early 20s, that all changed—the day she received a facial. This ignited a lifelong passion for skincare, and with the help of her mother, Joyce saved enough money to attend the Von Lee International School of Aesthetics and learned to nourish and nurture the delicate skin of the face. Joyce finished her skincare training with big dreams of starting her own business, but motherhood and a professional career—she has a master’s degree in social work—kept her goals at bay. After years of hard work and watching tear-jerking facial documentaries, Joyce finally took a leap of faith, resigning from her job and opening Elaina Joi Skincare, a studio in a quaint second-floor walkup.
Joyce translates the people skills she mastered during her former life in social work to establish a strong rapport with her clients and their specific skin concerns. With the aid of DermaQuest—a dermatologist-recommended skincare line created without animal testing—and Face Reality Skin Care–specially designed for clients with acne– Joyce attends to each client’s visage with a detailed, diligent approach. Sessions conclude when the specialist charts an at-home skincare regimen to ensure continued care and to keep pores out of the Pringles stash.
Apothecary Wellness Spa's service menu may be long and diverse, but every treatment has one thing in common: holistic, eco-friendly products and techniques that calm the mind and reveal beauty naturally. Facials rely on formulas from Naturopathica and Ilike Organic Skincare to purify and revitalize complexions through fully personalized treatments, each of which include soothing massages and a bounty of hot towels. Custom-massage sessions benefit from the addition of individually blended essential oils, and body treatments soften the skin by imparting essences of wholesome fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Even the waxing treatments take a natural approach by using Nufree, a plant-based, hair-removal formula that's naturally antibacterial and free of waxes and sugars, resulting in less skin irritation than the hard waxes or recently-lit birthday candles used by other spas.
