It might be more accurate to call Todd Buckley and Sara Tittle the artistic directors rather than the owners of Mosaic Salon?he recruits promising stylists and she trains them in the methods of Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and other top industry names. They then put the best stylists on the salon floor, arming them with products from K?rastase and Bumble and bumble, professional styling tools, and shears forged by long-haired artisan blacksmiths. In addition to providing hair services, Mosaic's team refines the rest of clients? images with face and body treatments using SkinCeuticals and Dermalogica skincare products.
The detox specialists at Smooth Sensations Body Balance help clients purge impurities and restore a sense of well-being. Cellulite-reduction treatments using endermologie equipment help break up unwelcome fatty deposits on thighs, buns, or midsections, and sessions in the infrared-sauna pod carry toxins away via perspiration. Ionic footbaths use gentle electric currents to draw out impurities, and facials rid skin of excess oils.
Choosing from the myriad of services offered by Alainn Tu is only slightly easier than solving Fermat's last theorem. Ease your muscular woes with a 90-minute Lomi Lomi massage ($90), using ancient Hawaiian healing-touch techniques, or a 90-minute Swedish massage ($90), which enlists firm but gentle pressure to ease aches and improve circulation. For skin showing signs of stress, forget injecting soothing elevator music into your face and instead opt for the 60-minute environmental control treatment ($65), which reduces redness and inflammation in the face.
Your visit to Salon Cabochon will begin with a thorough consultation with one of the salon's skilled stylists, and a fuzz-flattening Brazilian Blowout will further ensure follicular agreement. The keratin treatment lasts approximately 90 minutes, and similarly to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, coats each shaft of your hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness to eliminate frizz and smooth cuticles. The formula is chemical-free, so it actually improves the health of hair and imparts lovely radiance that lasts for up to 12 weeks, or up to 13 weeks for grown-up babies who were born on a leap year.
