The skin saviors at Q-ticles enlist natural oxygen and Bioelements products to revitalize dull or prematurely aging visages. As massages relax sore limbs and stressed faces, aestheticians launch into a one-hour process that includes a thorough skin analysis, deep cleanse, as-needed extractions, and a warm-up comedy routine. Enzyme-based exfoliants prep faces for a thorough scrubbing at the hands of a rotating brush, and Clarisonic’s Opal Sonic infuser carries anti-aging serum deep into pore’s recesses.
When Caroline Kreitlow opened Luxe the Salon, she made a conscious decision to use only all-natural and organic products so that her customers could leave looking good and feeling good knowing their new look didn't come at the environment's expense. Social consciousness isn't the only benefit, though––the chemical-free products are also safer for her clients, including expectant mothers and people with allergies and other skin conditions. Pureology, Moroccanoil, and All-Nutrient are just some of the brand names the salon professionals reach for as they create new haircuts for women, men, and teens, which are made all the more relaxing with the addition of a soothing scalp and neck massage. Sacred Nature products are organic and range from eye cream gel to protective face masks.
Laura at Luxe The Salon wields top-shelf products to beautify clients. The spa’s stylist, Laura Filip, blends organic color and styling products as she dolls up tresses with precision cuts and coloring treatments. She saves the most organic product—her own hands—for her best work, expertly crafting updos abundant with curls and twists. By using these natural formulations, Laura helps maintain the overall health of hair as well as follicles' integrity without subjecting them to an ethics lecture. This dedication to quality service and products extends to spa treatments as well, deploying Eminence skincare products to brighten complexions and NovaLash extensions to define lash lines.
Capricio Salon & Spa offers beauty opportunities for nearly every body part, all of which feature high-quality products such as Redken, Bodyography, and Dermalogica. The 45-minute express face treatment ($41+) deep-cleans, smoothly exfoliates, and hyper-hydrates skin in seven minutes less than 52 minutes, and airbrush tanning ($30) imparts pretty, beach-like pigments quickly. For an extended pelt pampering, the 75-minute environmental control treatment ($59+) soothes and smoothes red, itchy, and burr-ridden skin. Follicle services range from basic haircuts ($24+ for women, 18+ for men) to Japanese keratin straightening treatments ($100/hour). If you'd rather weed strands from your follicle garden, consider waxing and threading services.
Asian-inspired folding fans and hand-painted cherry blossoms adorn the walls of Options Salon & Spa, a destination for hair, body, and skin services available six days a week. To create silky smooth locks, the resident stylists reach for KeraCare and Paul Mitchell products as well as natural-looking extensions, which are intricately sewn, fused, or braided into the hair. During exfoliating body scrubs, aestheticians massage epidermises with a sea-salt or sugar mixture, which is blended with aromatic scents such as rose or cranberry pomegranate. The crew also caters to male clientele with personalized spa packages that include a men’s facial, an all-natural mani-pedi, a deep-tissue massage, and an optional celebratory chest bump.
A comfortable, inviting salon, Fringe administers follicular alterations using gentle products and careful precision. All Brazilian waxing sessions are handled by resident aesthetician and 10-year industry veteran Stefanie Corbett. In the comfort of a quiet, private room, Stefanie works her hair-wicking magic using Cirepil hard wax, a plant-based substance imported straight from France. Strip by strip, unwanted hairs will be banished from the body, allowing ladies to depart with the comfortable advantage of long-lasting hairlessness. This 45-minute procedure produces more potent results than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek and easily scared back into the follicle through the use of well-banged pans or the threat of another wax.
