At Rossi's Salon and Spa, located inside the Plaza of Paradise Village, a team of independent stylists wields scissors, shears, curling irons, and dyes to create unique hairstyles for all who walk through their doors. As hair gurus transform manes, nail techs perform mani-pedis, and a massage therapist fights muscle pain with six modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone therapy. The staff also performs facials and waxing services for those who want to put the finishing touches on their more refined look.
At SomaSense Bodywork, therapists perform traditional massage, yet specialize in what's known as somatic bodywork. The main tenet of somatic bodywork is that the health of the body is intrinsically tied to the health of the mind. And so it follows that challenges arise when they perform separately instead of in tandem. Somatic treatments combine release of bodily tension with the release of emotional tension, ushering clients toward an overall state of peace.
Massage therapists perform a variety of massage techniques including deep-tissue, Swedish, aromatherapy, and even Ashiatsu, which is performed with the therapists feet while they hang from an overhead bar.
Also fostering this sense of peace is the workspace. Located inside the historic Martin House, the studio is decorated with homey touches, such as cozy wing-back chairs and plush rugs, all of which encourage clients to leave cares at the door.
Between working, working up an appetite, and working out, it can be hard for a busy person to work on their skin. That’s why Girl on the Go! Night Spa stays open until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and until 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, offering beauty services that cater to the packed schedules of nine-to-fivers, students, and London Guards prone to acne. The unique, one-on-one appointment system ensures each client commands the entire spa to themselves, soaking in the peace and quiet as skin luxuriates in hydrating facials and antioxidant-rich body treatments. Despite its feminine moniker, the spa also tailors skin treatments and waxing sessions to suit the needs of guys on the go, and its reliance on organic products from Epicuren, Ilike Organic, Yonka, and Lucrece keeps services accessible to eco-conscious complexions.
Salon On 30th is a one-stop beauty haven, offering hair treatments and a large array of beauty services, which range from facials to waxing, and airbrush tanning. Beneath high ceilings with exposed beams, textured clay-tiled walls and sparkling chandeliers provide a backdrop for the beautification process. The licensed stylists transform clients with cuts and color services, prepping them for a job interview or a successful assimilation into the witness-protection program. Within private treatment rooms, the aestheticians exfoliate work to diminish fine lines and wrinkles with microdermabrasion sessions.
When it comes to beauty treatments, O'Leisure Hair Design does a little bit of everything. Licensed stylists here use AG Hair Products and perform chic haircuts and keratin smoothing treatments, and spa treatments such as hair removal, eyelash extensions, and nail services are also available. You can get even eyebrows with a threading session, too, or renew your skin and up your pH levels with an ultra-hydrating facial. There are private spa rooms for all waxing, massages, and facials.
