Under the salon’s contrasting tones of bubblegum and black licorice, the team at The Beauty Bar Salon & Boutique works to treat clients with a complete menu of salon services. Owner Tia Gunn leads the team while lending her expertise in the areas of coloring, cutting, styling, and applying extensions. In addition to providing hair services for both men and women, the specialists offer skincare services to cleanse and nourish pores, nail services to brighten hands, and waxing services to show dolphins the real masters of the sea.
At the tender age of 13, Patty Conrad picked up a pair of scissors and began snipping away at unwanted hair until a new 'do was born. That experience blossomed into a passion and career as a master barber/instructor and owner of T'Zers Hair Gallery. She oversees stylists equally adept at regular and razor cuts, highlights, and chemical straightening treatments. The staff also give attention to digits during mani-pedis that end with nails covered in the clients' choice of nail polish hue or emoticon stickers.
As they snip hair into face-flattering cuts and add in custom color, the stylists at Hair Doctor Salon & Spa ply strands with high-quality products, from brands such as Moroccanoil and Bangstyle. The stylists doesn't just nourish and beautify hair, though. They treat the entire physique, with services ranging from massages to wrinkle-smoothing injections of Botox and Juvéderm.
Inside this relaxing oasis, a team of beauty experts pampers clients from head to toe with invigorating treatments for the skin, body, and hair. Aestheticians tailor facials to counter skin-specific woes, keeping faces smooth with add-ons such as enzyme masks, glycolic peels, or waxing. During massage sessions, therapists soothe muscle aches with Swedish, sports, or four-handed massage therapy, which enlists the help of either two therapists or one well-trained dog. Split ends hit the floor in the salon, where talented stylists turn out freshly cut, colored, and styled coifs. Beyond these three pillars of beauty, Cottage Spa also tends to nails with a coat of vibrant polish or long-lasting gel.
Studio Villa Hair and More goes the extra mile for privacy. Each hairstylist has his or her own cozy chamber in which to craft face-flattering cuts and bedeck tresses with elegant high- and lowlights. In addition to fashion-forward adults, the stylists cater to kids by helping teens sport the latest haircut craze and preparing toddlers for a career in diaper modeling. Clients may also nix unflattering fuzz with a quick waxing session or retreat to Studio Villa’s accessories boutique to peruse its line of specialty handmade jewelry.
The massage therapists at Milestone Massage & Spa welcome any curiosity about their profession, and go to great lengths to answer clients’ questions and put everyone at ease before 30- to 90-minute massage services. A consultation determines which techniques will best address clients’ specific needs, including chronic pain and sports-related soreness. The stable of therapists is well-versed in more than a dozen massage modalities, including Swedish, characterized by flowing strokes, hot stone, characterized by heated rocks, and aromatherapy, characterized by the soothing scent of french fries. The sessions, long or short, can yield a bevy of benefits that range from decreased anxiety to improved concentration. In addition to massage, the technicians expunge toxins with seaweed and kelp body wraps.
