Couture Elements Spa’s team of stylists, cosmetologists, and massage therapists create a crossroads of modern and international techniques thanks to their years of training and field experience. Working from stations of woodgrain, white, and gray, stylists wield Paul Mitchell Pro Tools and color systems to overhaul 'dos with hues vibrant enough to attract fundraising calls from campaigning rainbows. Further down the stretch of polished hardwood floors, licensed massage therapists swarm bodies with elongated strokes and focused gliding motions, which soothe tense muscles and release pent-up stress. A number of spa packages combine cosmetic and relaxing treatments, allowing clients to harvest their inner and outer beauty simultaneously.
A striped awning shelters guests as they step inside The Village Salon's blue entrance room, which functions both as a reception area and an art gallery. Amid the salon proper's subdued gray walls and rustic wooden accents, a staff of experienced stylists under the direction of new management consults with customers before crafting flattering 'dos using products by Matrix, Moroccanoil, and Pureology. Meanwhile, aesthetic specialists administer purifying, age-erasing facials and meticulously cover nails with CND Shellac polish. The Village Salon also offers gift cards and packages for special occasions, such as bridal parties preparing for a wedding, couples celebrating an anniversary, or estranged clones attempting to reunite.
Technician Anita Ray believes the best route to relaxation involves natural products and techniques. She infuses elements of the outdoors into her services, heating basalt rocks for hot-stone massages, using naturally derived acids for peels, and tickling squids for cosmetic tattoo ink. To help clients to achieve desired results, Anita begins appointments with a consultation and analysis, which yields recommendations for the proper procedure and at-home care.
The caring aestheticians at Salon 921 & Day Spa revamp visages and pamper pelts with an arsenal of beauty and relaxation services amidst an inviting, homey atmosphere. The renewing European facial can whisk away pore impurities and promote visage vibrancy. Therein, a licensed aesthetician will deep clean and exfoliate pores, shroud cheeks in a personalized treatment mask and, like a forthright shopkeeper with a broom,sweep loitering, delinquent stress from the neck, shoulders, face, hands, and arms. Meanwhile, the soothe-smithing extends to the whole corpus with any of your choice of massage modalities. In the Swedish massage, for example, a licensed therapist will customize their light-to-medium pressure to increase circulation, cancel tension, and renew your favorite season of M.A.S.H.
Named 2010 "Best Hair Salon" in Tennessee Valley by CityVoter and in the 2009 Huntsville Times' Reader's Choice Awards, Salon Allure shapes, soothes, and shears tresses with a talented team of designers and Redken shampoos and products. A women's haircut and style ($29 and up) tames hair beasts, a foil treatment ($75 and up) highlights strands with accuracy, and a gloss or glaze ($30 and up) makes hair as shiny as a new penny covered in baby oil.
Mod Salon's recently opened doors beckon visitors into an opulent haven of mane and talon maintenance. During a roughly 45-minute Day at the Spa mani-pedi, experienced nail fashionistas polish keratin from finger to dewclaw. Knuckles and toes swim in purifying waves and rest between massaging palms before a scrub gently sweeps away rough patches. A foot mask hydrates and rejuvenates feet run ragged from breaking in new wooden clogs before nail-polish hues dance across digits.
