FineFeather Hair Extensions adds avian accents to customers’ locks with its selection of temporary extensions. A trio of feathers injects a shock of natural hues or dynamic colors into hairstyles to evoke images of wild glamour such as migrating in formation, flying against a sunset, or feeding hay to a Pegasus. Extensions remain invisibly attached to hair, adding striped strands or bright shades to an otherwise simple look without using hair-damaging chemical dyes. The quick 15-minute installation leaves an outcropping of plumage that can withstand washing, styling, and curling for up to six months before transforming back into an eagle and flying south for warmer weather.
Raw Hair Studio emphasizes superior customer service with its aesthetic army of seasoned stylists. With the eco-friendly pedicure, the technician massages the feet, cloaks them in a moisturizing mask, and sloughs the heels of any dead skin. The pedicure shapes up nails with a sanitary, waterless procedure. A polish change tops off the treatment, leaving toenails glistening enough to reflect sunlight back into space to communicate with alien pen pals in Morse code. Ladies opting for a haircut can revamp their noodle nests with a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry treatment followed by a styling session with one of Raw Hair Studio's professional mane mavens. This thorough head edit is good for any length of hair, whether clients are rocking short demi-bobs or keeping their locks long enough for a prince to scale the walls of their one-story bungalows.
Inside a warm, private treatment room, soft music sets the stage for serene massage sessions. Here, licensed massage therapists tame tension with an effleurage of soothing strokes that range over the entire body. Though they predominantly rely on their bare hands during deep-tissue and prenatal massages, therapists also apply warm towels and hot stones to relax clients.
Miriam Figueroa, a holistic wellness counselor, licensed massage therapist, and aesthetician, spent more than 20 years in the health and beauty industry, staffing five-star hotel spas and then founding her own luxurious center, Spatini Holistic Health. Her spa specializes in M’lis wellness programs, treatment packages that reduce stress and target specific ailments—from cellulite to arthritis—by drawing on the interrelations between mind, body, and soul.
A suite of traditional spa treatments flanks the holistic programs. Facials run the gamut from deep cleanses to nonsurgical face-lifts. Seven available styles of massage encompass the gliding strokes of Swedish and hot-stone massage, which the ancients discovered using stones warmed by confused mother chickens. Body polishes exfoliate away dry skin, an ideal prep for a botanical Bronze Biologic formula that leaves behind sunless, natural-looking tans.
There are no venomous snakes at Medusa, the Salon. Nor are there other dreadful sights such as split ends or unflattering color jobs. The funky and alternative organic salon maintains its order thanks to a talented team of stylists who continuously hone their skills through ongoing education with lines such as Toni&Guy and Aveda. Among Medusa's many services, color treatments stand out—using certified organic, ammonia-free, and PETA-approved color from Organic Color Systems, the staff transforms locks with natural-looking hues and total gray coverage.
