Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, micro needling, and botox the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
Pretty pampering pros at Knockouts Haircuts for Men, which is now under new ownership, spruce up scalps and cosset weary bodies in a sports-theme men?s salon that has been featured on the Today show and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch on CNBC. As guests sip ice-cold beers or other beverages and watch a game on flat-screen TVs, stylists sculpt sleek, fashionable looks with the salon?s signature six-step Heavyweight haircut. While the stylists shampoo hair or untie chin-strap beards, aestheticians wax backs and chests or refurbish rugged skin with facials and hand treatments. Stationed in private treatment rooms, the salon?s massage therapists promote further relaxation with modalities designed to melt residual tension from gentlemanly handshaking contests.
The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics’ trio of doctors all got into orthodontics when they realized just how much a great smile can improve someone’s life. Dr. Douglas Durbin, the inventor of the Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner, Dr. Thomas Garner, and Dr. John Huang enhance the smiles of both children and adults with Invisalign treatments, braces with clear brackets, and invisible retainers glued to the back of teeth. They use digital imaging to construct treatment plans, they avoid headgear whenever possible, and they never just pull out a tooth when it won’t cooperate. Under their steady hands, The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics has straightened the teeth of more than 35,000 patients, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009 Maria Montgomery.
Owner Denise Willinger brings more than three decades of aesthetic and massage experience to her spa and boutique, which was voted Best Day Spa in 2012 and 2013 by city voters of the Louisville A List. Inside, gently lit swaths of coral cloak the walls to envelop visitors in a warm glow that matches post-facial complexions. Massage therapists, aestheticians, and microscopic yet highly trained pore spelunkers treat skin and nails to revivifying services. Special cellulite-busting treatments craft sleek silhouettes. CelluSleek creator Betty Harris hand selected just a few spas to debut her body-contouring system, and Serenity is on that exclusive list.
Wild Strawberry Hair and Nail Studio's team of master Eufora Elite?certified stylists beautifies hair, skin, and nails using natural and organic products. Beneath twinkling crystal pendant lamps, stylists massage deep conditioners into scalps and cut, perm, and highlight hair. Conversely, the salon's aestheticians deftly remove unwanted body hair, leaving smooth, clean expanses of skin. The full-featured studio also provides nail and tanning services with coats of gel polish for fingers and toes and custom airbrushing to gild untanned limbs.
Many of the nails that emerge from Younique Soul Nail Bar sport dazzling designs—intricate swirls of glittery gemstones, vibrant gel flowers of fuchsia and gold, white rays slicing through azure backdrops. Others are decorated more subtly, with smart white French tips or sleek red acrylics. The nail salon’s expert technicians tailor their manicure, pedicure, and foot-massage services to accommodate each client’s unique style and schedule.
