At Bella A’More Day Spa and Salon, stylist Liz Mihalovits works alongside a team of veteran stylists and cosmetologists in breathing life into tired hairdos. A licensed cosmetologist for 14 years, Liz specializes in haircuts, color, wedding styles, and hair-smoothing treatments.
The specialists at Euphoria are trained visage virtuosos who use their talents to forge splendid skin out of dull, damaged dermis. The escape facial delves into pores and sloughs off dead skin with a rich bare fruit enzyme, followed by a vitamin-enriched mask that transforms faces into radiant jewels that inspire adoration from passersby and magic mirrors alike. If you'd rather get your feet and hands fit for sandals and hand-sandals, Euphoria's extremity experts will lovingly soak and scrub them before shaping the nails and editing the cuticles to include their shocking alternate ending.
The professional hair stylists and aestheticians of Zaza Beauty help patrons to locate beauty products to spruce up any glam-enhancing routine for hair, faces, bodies, and nails. OPI nail polish coats talons in fetching hues usually only seen on tropical birds and super-sized crayon boxes ($8.50), and a 17-ounce bottle of Hempz lotion moisturizes parched skin, infusing it with a soft and subtle scent ($17.95). Dermalogica clean-start kits house everyday facial-care necessities designed to cleanse, moisturize, and protect skin from the sun’s judgmental gaze ($18). Zaza Beauty stocks oodles of prettifying products in an open boutique layout, which diminishes the occurrence of ferocious bobby-pin onslaughts common in more cluttered shops. Patrons can seek prettification seven days a week and can also explore Zaza's salon and spa menu (not valid with this Groupon).
At Serenity Wellness Center, there are three pathways to an inner oasis of calm; and, though each route culminates in self-awareness and stress relief, it has its own expert guide. Massage therapists Diana Menz and Kristen Unzen take clients on a journey of flowing kneads and muscular release. They combine several modalities to create custom massages for their clients, augmenting them all with the warmth of an essential-oil-infused towel treatment.
Elsewhere in the center, licensed aesthetician Afton Land steers guests down the path toward revitalizing skincare. Her facials combat a wide range of conditions using botanical ingredients, such as vitamin C and chamomile for aging and algae and seaweed for dehydration or chapped gills. She also specializes in makeup application and speedy, comfortable waxing treatments.
Hypnotherapist Jackie Spencer takes patrons down the third and final path, which winds into the subconscious. Her confidential hypnotherapy sessions strive to reduce unwanted behaviors such as smoking or overeating. They can address specific phobias as well by encouraging clients to seek change and overcome their obstacles from within.
The skin specialists at Smart Xposure want clients to get tan, but they don?t want them burn. In their experience, many clients think looking pink after tanning confirms they got color. The staff warns that those burns, no matter how light, lead to skin problems later in life. So, Smart Xposure opts for safer tanning methods, handpicking bulbs from Thomas Edison?s private collection for UV beds that are up to 99.7% UVB-free and designed to keep clients at a pace of only two to three tans per month. Mystic and organic custom airbrush tans eliminate UV exposure entirely, evenly coating bodies with natural-looking color.
Smart Xposure infuses its client-conscious practices with a dose of fun, enlivening the lobby with a plasma-screen television. Upbeat music spills into each room through a DMX sound system, and modern decor evokes the feel of a nightclub without the unpleasant ordeal of having to sweet-talk a bouncer into letting you into the bathroom.
Changes—it's right there in the salon name. At Changes Salon and Spa, Natalie Chanel encourages clients to embrace change with bold, playful styles that can boost a flat style come the new season, an elegant event, or when inviting Mars into your fifth house. As a stylist who frequently works in fashion photography, runway styling, and film, Natalie doesn't shy away from creating edgy, fashion-forward looks, which might include asymmetric cuts or streaks of bright colors. She can also work with traditional styles, of course, à la a classic bob or pretty blond highlights, and can add length and volume with extensions or prepare clients for special occasions with intricately braided updos.
