Owner Cherhea Frazier's favorite part of being a stylist is watching her clients transform. She puts that love to work when she helps women with thinning hair and health issues regain their confidence through beauty treatments. Cherhea draws on 12 years of experience while molding manes into custom shapes to suit all persuasions. In addition to cropping 'dos with razor cuts or extending strands with Cinderella hair extensions, she accents coiffures with highlights, lowlights, and the tildes that make so many Spanish letters look resplendent. While she works, Cherhea uses products by Moroccanoil, Pureology, and Pravana. She can also tame frizzy hair with chemical relaxers or keratin treatments.
An experienced staff performs services ranging from lash extensions to breast augmentation. Professionally administered facial peels and injectables such as Botox erase age lines. In addition to cosmetic procedures, the team can also handle women's health issues with services including family planning, hormone therapy, and ultrasound tests performed by bat echolocation.
In the midst of rustic woods, there sits a three-story building. Upon opening its front door, visitors unleash a gentle wave of aromatherapy scents and warm air. They step inside, where therapists lead them past wood accents and into private treatment rooms. World of Serenity’s spa atmosphere recalls the calm of the surrounding wilderness, and inside its walls, therapists adopt a holistic approach; they educate guests in wellness basics, such as why humans don’t eat sand, and perform a range of customized spa services. They soften faces, deep-cleanse pores, and slough of dead cells during customized facials; sometimes scouring or soothing the skin with an additional enzyme deep cleanse, warm stones, or anti-aging collagen. They also ease muscle tension with six massage modalities such as deep tissue, warm stone, and reflexology; and scrub clients from head to toe using salt and sugar rubs, and wraps made from natural dead sea mud or Paradisius—a blend of ground fruit and flower extracts.
Coloroom's savvy stylists work with customers to snip hair into edgy razor cuts or classic bobs, and bring a smoother smile to faces. Posttrim, help locks gleam with a set of highlights, creating subtle or dramatic contrasts and underlining points that are likely to be on an exam. As the color solution sets in, a skincare expert will use cotton to gently swab the face with a glycolic-peel solution. For 15 minutes, the exfoliant will work its way into the surface, sloughing off dead cells that impede the body's natural Lite-Brite glow, which can shine on for three weeks after treatment. Beauty seekers can expect their stay to last roughly two hours.
Owner Becky Weir and her handpicked team of stylists harness Redken and Pureology products to power fashion-driven services. During haircuts, shears remove split ends and snip flattering face frames to update styles while guests sip complimentary refreshments. All services refresh skulls with a shampoo and relaxing scalp massage and conclude with a blow-dry and style that pamper tresses like Rapunzel's elevator. Stylists wield Redken color during highlight services and delve deep into cranial underbrush to brighten locks with up to 31 foils or elect tactical surface strands for partial highlights. Patrons settle into sleek, black aprons, trusting their pelts to stylists who expand hairstyling awareness by taking two outside-education classes per year.
Heralded by KMBC as Kansas City's First Place Best Day Spa, La Vita Bella transports patrons toward the realms of relaxation with custom massage, facials, and body treatments. To begin the ultimate revitalizing peel and facial package, clients make a beeline to the relaxation room, where an aromatic neck wrap supplants the talons of pet parrots and a lavender paraffin hand treatment hydrates digits. Next, spa denizens sashay into the treatment room, where an aesthetician cleanses, tones, and exfoliates tired and weathered visages. A choice of papaya-pumpkin or aloe-azulene mask graces faces, followed by a moisturizing lip and eye treatment. A cocoa-butter foot treatment and upper-back massage extends the pampering parade across the entire body boulevard. Or, opt for an hour-long La Vita Bella facial, where faces are cleansed and steamed, then gently exfoliated with extractions. After a mask and moisturizing treatment, bodies are soothed by a face, neck, and hand or foot massage.
