When couples just don't have the time for a vacation this year, Luscious helps them escape into an oasis where a hot tub and a fireplace keep hearts warm and a wine bar with healthy snacks romances even the taste buds. Inside a private treatment room, a licensed massage therapist disentangles muscle knots with stretching, heated basalt stones, or custom-tailored kneading. The spa also offers detoxifying mud wraps that use Egyptian mud clay to unclog pores and back-buffing treatments that clean and exfoliate skin to help heal blemishes. Gentlemen’s and ladies’ services can be performed in couples or solo for spouses in need of a deep cleaning after literally sleeping in the dog’s house.
Nailing a job interview, taking a spiritual retreat, and heading out for a night with friends—these disparate activities all work to boost one’s Oola. Fun to say and satisfying to achieve, you attain Oola when several core factors of your life are thriving. Oola might mean that you’re feeling good about your fitness level, finances, career, faith, or relationship with your family, friends, and ant-farm residents. The folks at Oola hope to boost Oola levels nationwide by helping their clients map out their life’s goals and how they will go about achieving them. The service also boosts Oola quotients by introducing their members to cool businesses and offering discounts on services including massages, fitness, and mani-pedis.
Since 1989, the mane-maintaining mavens at Variations Hair Salon have transformed dull strands into enviable displays of put-togetherness with professional cuts and smart stylings for men, women, and children. During each appointment, a rejuvenating shampoo session washes head nests of dirt, oil, and pelican feathers before a talented trimmer carefully cuts strands in the customer’s desired style. A final styling straightens hair and adds bounce to flowing manes, ensuring guests exude style and sophistication. Afterward, visitors can stroll down sidewalks while luring more admiring looks than a baby wrapped in hundred-dollar bills.
Black, leather seating, elegantly spare walls, and copious light reflecting off the hardwood floors sets the tranquil setting of Singhaar, a salon, spa, and Indian apparel boutique. After aestheticians refresh complexions with facials inside private treatment rooms, and stylists sculpt and color coifs, guests can top off new looks by harvesting pieces from the boutique's multicolored racks. Vivid fuschias, greens, and yellows swim across dresses and tunics in the form of paisley, beaded embellishments, and even zebra print—though no zebras or paisley monsters were harmed in the clothes' creation.
