At Thea skin hair body mind, caring therapists help clients cultivate beauty and health from the inside out. In addition to selling makeup and skincare products by CosMedix, Jane Iredale, Rene Furterer, and Société Clinical Skincare, staffers operate a salon and spa dedicated to rejuvenating hair, skin, and the spirit within. Here, clients can unwind among warm orange walls, lush pink curtains, ornate mirrors, and globally inspired tile work. Hair services range from cutting and coloring to exotic treatments such as Brazilian blowouts and Japanese thermal reconditioning, which both leave hair as smooth as a saxophone dipped in hot fudge. In addition to offering skincare services such as LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, spa staffers pamper bodies with nature-inspired body treatments such as sea-salt scrubs and Moroccan mud wraps.
The multispecialty team at Body Kneads takes a no-frills approach to pampering. Stylists offer guests a complimentary beverage as they get down to business transforming hair and nails. Aestheticians analyze skin during hydrating facials, and massage pros aim to send bodies into a state of relaxation. Whereas the jacuzzi area boasts a wall-length mural depicting a mountainous lake scene, the main salon is simply decorated with plants and flowers. Large mirrors allow patrons to admire freshly tanned skin or check to see if a body-scrub treatment has removed a self-applied chocolate bull's-eye meant for Cupid.
When asked about her stance on skincare products, Jamie Jacob’s answer is simple: “If it doesn’t do something amazing, I don’t carry it.” The veteran aesthetician honed her keen ability to weed out the unworthy contenders through 600 hours of cosmetology schooling, which included extra training with Dermalogica, Eminence, Skin Script, and Tu'el Skin Care lines. Much like beauty-pageant contests, who are judged on personality alone, Jamie’s services span the beauty spectrum with an array of facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion treatments that keep epidermal expanses silky smooth, as well as massages that go hand-to-hand against troublesome aches.
