At Firm Fitness & Spray Tan, visitors are transformed through a combination of hard work and aesthetic treatments. Personal trainer, co-owner, and competitive bodybuilder Phil Placko works one-on-one with clients to devise custom workouts. His studio is stocked only with essentials, its weight and cardio machines occupying a sparely-adorned room that's free of distractions such as blaring TVs and mimes. Outside the exercise rooms, infrared body wraps and massages help bodies flush out toxins and recover from intense workouts, while spray tan technicians administer golden glows to highlight every newly toned muscle.
Licensed aesthetician Tracy Bader–a Casal Aveda Institute graduate–fights aging and revitalizes skin with more than a dozen different facial treatments. She enhances relaxation with aromatic essential oils or uses crushed pearls to exfoliate the skin and treat signs of aging. In addition, she offers waxing services to remove unwanted fuzz and makeup applications to prep clients for special occasions. She also draws attention to the eyes with eyelash extensions and provides below-the-shoulder care with body scrubs, citrus wraps, and hot-stone massages.
Clients receive plenty of unexpected extras with their hair services at Bryana Nichole Salon & Spa. Cuts include hot towels, massaging shampoos, and neck and shoulder massages; color services come with Joico K-Pak hair-repair treatments; and a week's supply of Aquage shampoo and conditioner is included with each special-occasion style. In addition to hair services, the salon and spa waxes off unwanted facial and body fuzz and pampers patrons with hot-stone massages and Dermalogica facials.
As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Accentrix's Salon and Spa integrates Paul Mitchell products into nearly every treatment. Stylists enrich manes with award-winning shampoos in the washhouse, and infuse hair with botanical styling aids at haircut stations. After a haircut or dye job, clients can take a seat at the toolbar—a workbench outfitted with salon-grade flat irons, round brushes, and monkey wrenches—and learn to reproduce their hairstyle at home. In addition to salon services, Accentrix offers spa services that enhance nails, bodies, and complexions while relaxing the mind.
The human body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself, but sometimes, even that isn't enough. The massage therapists and skin specialists at Reflections Wellness Center pamper their clients from head to toe with spa treatments in a tranquil studio setting. This space is home to one of the area's only medical infrared saunas, which draws toxins out of the bodies at the cellular level through perspiration, as well as a full menu of bodywork services, facials, waxing, and nail treatments. Those looking to impart a more desirable contour to their curves may schedule sessions with the center's Lipo-Light Pro, a device that fights localized deposits of fat and helps rejuvenate skin in a non-invasive treatment.
The professionally trained hair stylists at New Styles Salon & Tanning snip and tease lifeless tresses into custom coiffures. New Style's skilled stylists massage products from Paul Mitchell, Goldwell, and Aquage into messy mops, working fragrant shampoo from the follicles to the end of each strand. Refresh cranial filaments with a personalized cut, then relax as a hair sculptor perfects your new 'do by harnessing the expeditious gusts of a cheetah-powered hair-dryer.
