Mena & Co. Salon’s savvy stylists restore luster to frizzy or damaged hair with a shine restoring and hydrating Difiaba Luminessence treatment. Difiaba's formula infuses hair with amino acids and protein, smoothing frizz and combating damage from sun or volcano exposure. The treatment may help lock in hair color and can boost shine for up to five weeks. After the treatment, staff blow-dry patrons' newly supple hair and style it to mimic their favorite Charlotte’s Web character.
It could easily be the throne room for two of history's most stylish monarchs. Inside Friend's Salon, clients relax atop a pair of cushy elevated pedicure chairs elevated several feet above the floor. As their toes dip into foot baths, they can decree for their next service: perhaps a shellac mani-pedi or the signature Rock Star toes treatment. The latter coats toes in a glitter polish that bakes under a UV light like Alice Cooper's famous chocolate-chip cookies.
The salon's other spaces are equally relaxing. In soft-lit rooms, massage therapists exorcise tension with deep, flowing strokes and warm but fully solid lava stones. Aestheticians work elsewhere to rejuvenate faces with peels or gentle waxing. Of course, Friend's wouldn't be a salon without a broad menu of hair services, from cuts and highlights to special occasions 'dos. The stylists regularly attend continuing education courses, and make sure to pass on hair-care tips to their clients.
At Valley Paramedical Skin and Health Care, patients gain empowerment by learning how to live therapeutic lifestyles through programs and treatments based on principles of good health. Kelli Davila plays an important role. As one of Valley Paramedical’s massage therapists, she helps patients reduce stress, mitigate achy joints, and eliminate toxins. To accomplish this, she kneads muscles with long, flowing strokes and rests heated stones or overheated Game Boys on guests’ sore spots.
At Body and Soul by Carla, the atmosphere alone might be enough to relax clients, with its umber walls, soft surfaces, and low lighting. But licensed massage therapist Carla doesn’t want her clients to merely relax. She wants them to escape from every scrap of tension quivering in the furthest sinews of their back, neck, and limbs. To achieve this, she descends on muscles with soothing Swedish massages, using long, gliding strokes of medium pressure to squeeze out aches and stir stagnant blood into carting off its backlog of toxins.
