The aestheticians at Suite One Twenty-Seven help nurture radiant, blemish-free skin with their hair-removal and skincare treatments. Both men and women can get smooth, stubble-free surfaces on faces, legs, and even bikini areas. Once unwanted hair is ousted, you can indulge in an aromatic chocolate facial or a microdermabrasion treatment that sloughs off dead skin cells and secret identities. For head-to-to pampering, you can finish up with a foot exfoliation, french pedicure, and optional tickle session.
Debbie, an experienced spa savant at Pamela's Nail Boutique and Salon, wields multifarious beauty skills to doll up digits, rejuvenate visages, and freshen face-fringe. A traditional mani-pedi gives succor to digits tired from doing the dishes or jitterbugging across computer keyboards in high heels. Debbie first cleans cuticles, then trims, soaks, and buffs finger- and toenails in preparation for layers or gleaming lacquer. Armed with top-shelf products, she’ll start a personalized facial by cleansing façades, then slather on a custom-made oatmeal, almond, or pomegranate and green-tea mask. Alternatively, clients seeking to renovate hair homes can kick back while Debbie cleanses, sculpts, and styles locks into dome-decorating busts of George Washington.
Master designer and educator Helen Reed heads up the hair services at this AVEDA concept salon. She is supported by a bevy of talented aestheticians, including nail extraordinaire Courtney, who can tag fingertips with natural-looking gel nails that dry under ultraviolet light and are made to withstand medium-intensity games of Tiddlywinks. While hours vary, appointments are available Tuesday through Saturday each week.
Susan Hayes can transform appearances with a simple snip of her scissors or stroke of her dye-coated brush. She creates trendy coifs, adds bold color to manes, and improves the health of hair by infusing it with conditioning products. To complement her stunning strand work, clients can receive waxing services, facials, or Shellac manicures.
Fingers are the hands’ workhorses. After years of gripping pencils, traipsing across keyboards, and pointing vociferously at the ghost no one else seems to see, they need a break. That’s where Karlette, a nail technician at b. jolie Salon and Spa, comes in. Sugar scrubs, nourishing masks, and vivid colors of polish stand at the ready as she revives beleaguered appendages. For extra relaxation she calls on her reflexology skills to relieve tension and discomfort from feet. As Karlette battles unruly cuticles, Redken stylists fly past in the chic, welcoming salon, making it easy for her clients to add on a haircut, a set of highlights, or an advanced wig-styling session.
