Some clients go to spas to boost wellness with ancient rituals. Others go for the technology that helps them look their best. New Spa Me Inc. serves both categories of clientele with services from both the holistic healing and med-spa worlds. Treatments such as Thai herbal therapy and shiatsu draw from Eastern healing traditions thought to align energy and restore inner balance without surgically removing inner seesaws. On the other side of the spectrum, radiofrequency facials employ radio waves to deeply penetrate and tone skin. Both kinds of services are conducted within private treatment rooms whose lights may be dimmed for a relaxing, candlelit atmosphere or brightened to ensure medically exact treatments.
Panache ranks its stylists according to four levels of expertise (artist, designer, master, and top stylist), but all know how to keep appearances fresh and flattering with an array of mane-based services using Aveda products. Clients can relax or gargle the national anthem with a cup of Aveda tea as their scissor samurai cuts ($25+ for men, $37+ for women) and styles ($10+) hair into exciting new follicular sculptures. Panache also keeps anime hair looking its purplest with a variety of color treatments, including a color cleanse ($35+), touch-up ($60+), full color ($70+) with highlights ($25+ for partial, $45+ for full), or paint-can swirly.
Stacey Pope zips around her private salon suite beautifying her clients with head-to-toe treatments. In addition to haircuts, customized for each client’s lifestyle and propensity to tumble through flaming hoops, Pope also makes hair dazzle with highlights and rich single-process hues. She finishes beauty treatments with skin-smoothing facials, body waxes, and mani-pedis. To fit her clients’ busy schedules, Pope features a 24-hour online scheduler so customers may book an appointment without interrupting work hours.
Vanity Salon houses a closely knit, five-person team that operates much like a family. Each of the master cosmetologists specializes in a specific aspect of beautification, from Shellac mani-pedis to haircuts and coloring. The salon's service list illustrates other essential treatments, including waxing, skincare, and pampering for any hands and feet that have grown tired of typing emails or waving at dogs.
