The technicians at La Pure Day Spa grant clients' beauty and relaxation behests by performing everything from therapeutic massages to medical-grade skincare treatments. Inside the skincare clinic, aestheticians nourish complexions with facials harvested from Éminence Organic Skin Care products. Glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids power seven 30-minute chemical peels, which, like linemen in a hall of mirrors, each try to tackle something different, including acne, dryness, and hyperpigmentation. Massage therapy chases tension from tendons with the popular gliding strokes of the Swedish technique or the intense, clinical manipulations of the deep-tissue modality. A licensed physician fills gravity-stricken skin with Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane injections, and makeup artists decorate faces with Jane Iredale mineral makeup so that clients don’t have to accentuate their best features by circling them with crayons.
At Kasi Spa for Men, an all-female staff helps visitors relax and freshen up with professional massages, haircuts, and hot-towel shaves. After determining clients' individual needs, licensed therapists ease muscle tension in with the appropriate techniques, such as deep-tissue pressure for clients with chronic pain or sports massage for hockey goalies' severely inflamed shins. Stylists shave stubble down to the smooth, masculine skin underneath with an invigorating medley of three hot towels, cleansing treatments, and moisturizing lotions.
Aestheticians at Challise & Company - Hair Skin Body, an Aveda salon and spa, revamp tresses and beautify complexions with botanical extracts blended into Aveda products. These cherry, pumpkin, and vanilla serums team up to cleanse pores, nourish hair, and soothe stressed muscles during negotiations to release hostage knots. A portion of all proceeds goes to local charities selected by staff members.
Corrective Skin Care operates with the philosophy that the skin can be a indicator for a person's overall health. With that in mind, the studio aims for a holistic approach to skin care that involves diet, facial treatments, holistic and homeopathic supplements, and natural-yet-powerful topical products. Licensed aesthetician Jacynth R. Hall helps her clients to achieve dramatic skincare results with microdermabrasion, fruit acid peels, and anti-aging treatments, along with a host of other services. Come in for a deep pore cleansing and acne treatment, or have a youth-enhancing light therapy session that comes with an included peel to reduce the appearance of fine lines and grocery lists written on your forehead.
American Haircuts, located on 10th Street in the heart of Midtown, is a clean, cool and undeniably masculine upscale barber shop. The cool colors, wooden cabinets and rows of male-oriented products instantly let customers know that they are in a men’s fine grooming salon. There are flat-panel televisions, and the radio is often tuned to the crooners of old, rather than today's poppy singers. Patrons are greeted with a drink and a smile, and can relax and enjoy the experience, knowing that they are in well-trained hands. Of course, they offer straight razor shaves in addition to the traditional haircuts, but for individuals looking for a perm, this may not be the right spot.
Hairstylist Kris Lawler and Robin Boyar have honed their approach over several decades, and for the last two of these, they've been the proud owners of Studio 305. Inside the clean, modern salon, they lead a team of experienced stylists and color technicians as they transform hair with color and styling products, or buff and polish nails during mani-pedis. Redken, Moroccan Oil, and Pureology products aid them in their quest to tame hair and throw off the scent of any roaming hair collectors. Though the pair always aims to make folks feel pretty, that mission is particularly important to them when offering pro-bono services to victims of domestic violence.
