Hands get a double shot of pampering with a scrub and hand massage, in addition to the standard cuticle trimming and polish change. The pedi includes a foot massage, scrub, soothing footbath, and refreshing wash. Long-time Norman residents and owners Kathy and Noel Morris have extensive experience in the spa industry and have been offering soothing spa services to the area for more than 15 years.
Take Five's talented stylists have been serving up beautiful platters of hairstyle since 1993 from their salon near the University of Oklahoma. Their scissors have dipped into the head-threads of folks from every imaginable walk of life, be they style-fixated fashionistas or befuddled Flubber-inventing professors. Once they've gotten your noodle-nest moist and tender with the help of top-of-the-line Aveda-brand products, Take Five will carve the locks of lords, ladies, and ladies' men into a new look that swivels necks and fatally distracts bomb defusers.
One tiny brushstroke at a time, the Shellac polish is applied to each nail. Immediately, it does double duty, keeping nails nice and shiny and protecting keratin sheets from chips and scratches caused by building too many sand castles in the zen garden. The beauty pros at traspa also make their clients’ bodies shine with the removal of unwanted hair or take out the extra sheen on mugs during oil-blasting facials.
Heather Alverson knows that the most minute details count. Whether she is scaling back a cuticle or applying a long-lasting polish, she attends to her clients with the precision of a time-traveling weatherman. Clients leave the salon confident that their fingernails and toenails are in top-notch shape.
The experienced stylists at Hair Rage deftly trim shining tresses and technicians pamper fingers and toes with expert nail services. During an initial hair consultation, clients meet with stylists to discuss which cuts will attractively frame their features or enhance the realism of a rubber Richard Nixon mask. Experienced fingers then massage scalps with nourishing shampoo at rows of sleek black sinks before stylists snip, style, and blow-dry tresses at a mirrored styling station. Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.
Whether your goal is to disguise aging, neutralize acne outposts, or emulate the soft skin of the faces on Euros, Aqua’s staff will help you decide on the right facial for your skin and customize it to match. The European facial deep cleanses your flesh-emoticon before exfoliators decimate hidden pore pockets of unwanted things such as discontinued skin cells, skin-hugging smog, and outgrown tricycles. The more intensive anti-aging facial smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles without turning the clock too far back and leaving you with a baby’s head. The acne facial, meanwhile, helps transform your frontispiece from pizza back into skin, removing minor scars along the way. All three treatments will leave you with skin that shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, only without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it.
