The decor at W Salon and Spa—curled chandeliers, furniture upholstered with monochrome prints, and antique-looking wooden bureaus at each styling station—evokes an Enlightenment-era salon steeped in serenity. The literary setting is appropriate since the staff views the venue as a sanctum for the self, where guests can sink into relaxed introspection. With a team that specializes in a number of fields, the spa addresses a sweeping spectrum of services to facilitate such pampered meditation.
A licensed cosmetologist primps complexions with makeup applications and eyelash extensions, and a certified massage therapist calls upon five modalities to put physiques at ease more effectively than a soothing impression of Morgan Freeman narrating a documentary about sloths. Hair- and skincare treatments benefit from Unite and Sonya Dakar products, respectively.
On the spa's medical side, technicians combat wrinkles with Botox injections and curtail unwanted hair growth with carefully aimed laser treatments. The beauticians also host spa parties, accommodating wedding groups and celebrations for expectant mothers as well as birthdays.
Beautifying bodies from tresses to toes, Reflections' talented staff of skin-smoothers and hair-whisperers treats men and women to a full range of skin and scalp services. Beauty-seekers can step into the calming, mauve-hued sanctuary for the deep-cleansing flush of a 50-minute signature facial. Unwind over a cup of complimentary coffee or tea as a friendly aesthetician dissolves dirt and dust from cheeks, chins, and epidermal cellars below. Gentle exfoliation scours away dead cells and a penetrating mask permeates pores, working to resurrect skin with overt vibrancy and a new lease on life. Aromatherapy and essential oils strike a closing herbal harmony between mind, skin, and nose.
Salon 1500's team of dedicated stylists perfect coiffures with an array of salon treatments that use high-quality haircare products from brands such as Bumble and bumble, Eufora, and Enjoy. A stylist consults with the client to create the most flattering head curtain with a design cut. For the finishing touch, skilled hands style newly snipped head strings, making clients as fashionable as King Louis XIII at a powdered wig convention. Clients can practice poststyling struts in Salon 1500's boutique or confuse other patrons by cat-walking circles around the waiting room's wicker chairs.
Even though pink is her favorite color, salon owner Kat Daniels designed her salon to cater to the pampering needs of both men and women. The result is a cozy, balanced mix of masculine and feminine elements, including mocha-tinted walls, sleek styling chairs, animal-print accents, and the occasional tasteful pop of fuchsia. Ladies and gents can both appreciate the attention to detail Kat and her staff bring to haircuts, mani-pedis, and skin services such as microcurrent facials, as well as the shop's arsenal of top-of-the-line products bearing names such as Redken, Pureology, and Dermalogica. The staff goes above and beyond with indulgent extras such as head, neck, and shoulder massages and men's hot-towel treatments, but above all else, they pride themselves on creating a peaceful, quiet atmosphere where clients can escape from day-to-day stress and door-to-door salesmen.
