Indulge Salon and Day Spa offers a mélange of spa services within its sprawling and serene confines. Led by owner and movie-makeup artist Stacy Brewer McLarty, a skilled squad of professionals lies in wait to pamper patrons. The 60-minute microdermabrasion facial is a non-invasive yet effective method of getting up close and personal with pores. A trained technician unleashes an exfoliating treatment that collides with stale skin cells, which are shattered and swept away to reveal the ravishing, rosy glow inherent to the human face. Although this simple, nearly painless procedure generally requires no down time, some may experience short-term redness and flaking. Whether prepping for an important event or seeking improved aerodynamic flow during porpoise races, faces can find their heart's desire thanks to microdermabrasion.
Courtney and Corey Nappa complement each other’s skill sets well. Courtney has a wealth of business experience and a passion for beauty, and Corey has years under his belt as a personal trainer and fitness-center manager. They realized that they could combine their skills into an ideal health-club experience, and Ten X Club was born.
On the fitness end of the business, instructors hold group Pilates, yoga, and spin classes. Cardio and weight-lifting rooms feature equipment from manufacturers such as Nautilus and Precor. A kids’ playroom keeps tykes entertained while parents shed sweat. On the other end of the spectrum, the sleekly appointed salon features hair services, mani-pedis, and spray-tanning services in a quiet environment, the air perfumed with the scent of hair products. Here, too, members can send their kids to the playroom while they enjoy grownup relaxation time with beautifying services, adult conversation, and the freedom to eat animal crackers any way they choose.
At NV My Hair Salon, licensed stylist Nancy Brown bolsters vanishing hairlines with a slew of thickening services, both cosmetic and scientific. Following a consultation to determine a treatment plan individualized for each client's hair loss, scalp type, and favorite hard candy, hair light-therapy growth treatments painlessly promote scalpy cell production. During each session, patients repose beneath the IllumiWave Clinical Laser, the fuchsia rays of which boost thickness and growth. Although each case varies, most noggins note a visible tress thickening within four months of regular treatments. Alternatively, a full set of extensions crowns the cranium in 100% human hair for natural-looking length and volume. In just one hour, skull rinds ripple with added locks that can withstand swimming in salt water, sweating through workouts, and standing on end at the sight of a kodiak bear stealing their TV.
Established in 1997, Barbershop Deluxe pays homage to classic barbershops with a neighborhood setting reminiscent of the 1930s. The shop operates under co-owners Christina Morelli and Jon Haskell who, along with their traditionally trained crew, consistently churn out modern and stylish haircuts in a laid-back environment. When redeeming today’s Groupon, the male molding experts invite guests to engage in friendly chatter about local happenings, news, weather, sporting events, and, of course, any and all particular follicular requests. Barbershop Deluxe maintains generous opening and closing hours throughout the week, with vacant chairs available Tuesday–Saturday, allowing visitors to stop in for a quick clip after work or in lieu of Saturday morning cartoons.
The Brazilian blowout is a thoroughly popular method for eradicating frizz and achieving a gleaming mane of tossable, healthy head hair (see here for the FAQ, and here for details of the Brazilian blowout process). Over the course of about 90 minutes, one of the expert stylists at Marc Harris will use a nutrient complex and proprietary polymer system (formaldehyde-free) to create protective sheaths of protein around each strand of hair, smoothing rough cuticles like sandpaper being dipped in a vat of melted throat lozenges. The radiant results last up to 12 weeks and can be washed and dried sans damage (although the effect is best prolonged via Açai hair-care products). With your new, pulchritudinous tresses, you'll be able to put silky lions to shame at the zoo or become an instant celebrity for hosting the first nesting pair of endangered beauty eagles, which only rear their young in the most gorgeous of dos.
