For close to a quarter century, the staff at HeadTurners Salon and Wellness Spa have been helping people look and feel better with a menu of relaxing treatments that earned the Hutchinson News Readers’ Choice award for Best Day Spa and Hair Salon in 2009 and 2010.
In the salon area, cosmetologists customize cuts and colors at 15 hair stations, and nail technicians pamper hands and feet. Two licensed massage therapists loosen muscles with aromatherapy or heated stones, and aestheticians clarify faces using the Clinical Care Skin Solutions line. The spa also offers automated treatments for clients seeking high-tech relaxation and detoxification or guests who were raised by robots.
The crystal chandelier illuminates a copper-colored tin ceiling and lights the way toward a reception desk made of rich cherry. Guests can browse a selection of jewelry, clothing, and accessories in the boutique area.
Complexion Perfection’s licensed aesthetician Brianne Whitley keeps it simple. Her skincare treatments fall into two categories: facials and chemical peels. A selection of four facials is designed to combat specific complexion issues, while nine different chemical peels employ more aggressive blemish-fighting formulas still gentle enough for use on patients with rosacea, dry skin, or melodramatic noses.
The trained professionals at A Cut Above brandish their skills to refurbish appearances with hair-centric services. During the 10- to 30-minute haircut, one of these mane masters will prune shaggy head shrubberies using a choice of traditional scissors, texture-conjuring razors, or gas-powered lawn mowers. Women and men both can opt to tame unruly brows into suave submission with an eyebrow waxing. Alternately, an upper-lip waxing uproots unwanted facial hair, leaving lips smooth and aerodynamic for Olympic-grade pie-eating marathons.
Muscles unclench, toxins retreat, and stagnant blood gets moving under the therapeutic hands of Casey Muck Ebert, licensed massage therapist of Rockhill Massage Therapy. Casey excels at both ends of the massage spectrum: the therapeutic and the luxurious. Whereas she targets the root causes of pain with sports and deep-tissue massages, she also eases clients into states of tension-free serenity with hot stone and Swedish massages.
Fall foot, face, or follicle first into Salon Knotty and Day Spa, where a wide variety of services nurture noodle nests and buff bone boxes back to their younger, fresher selves. Tame wily manes with a haircut (starting at $24 for men, $32 for women), or restore lackluster locks to a natural shade of fuchsia with all-over hair color ($50+). Tongues and toes are equally pampered during the margarita-inspired Ritas & Rocks pedicure ($60), wherein clients are invited to sip a complimentary nonalcoholic margarita as their nails drink up moisture and shine. For the bristle and ripple beriddled, an array of waxing services ($15+) is available to smooth stubbly soul sacks. The spa's anti-aging layered facial ($125) freshens weary frontispieces and leaves skin smooth and well hydrated. Boasting a sleek, streamlined interior and on-site childcare for kids age 12 and under, Salon Knotty's chic and tranquil atmosphere offers a relaxing environment in which to mollycoddle your life-size action figure.
Grace Designs & Esthetics’ skincare professionals upgrade the health and look of skin with face and body treatments performed inside a newly renovated space adorned with modern accents. While the spa’s makeup artists expertly camouflage imperfections, aestheticians work to correct their underlying causes with facials that rehabilitate dry, aging, or smart-mouthing skin.
