Sip champagne while your feet soak in a warm whirlpool bath. Relax as a hydrating mask softens your skin and a massage loosens your muscles. Feel the tingle of raw epson salts and essential oils as they rejuvenate your skin during a full-body scrub. All of the above?and plenty more?is possible at Studio J Salon & Day Spa, a full-service beauty haven where nothing takes a backseat to relaxation.
That's not to say that relaxation is all this place has to offer. A team of hairstylists offers cuts and coloring treatments along with conditioning services that give locks some added oomph. And aestheticians draw from dozens of facials to address chronic skin issues such as acne, dryness, and seasonal molting. Speaking of skin, the spa even features an experienced tattoo artist who can create custom designs to complete a total makeover.
The hand-painted murals at Tuscan Salon may catch clients' eyes on the way in, but it's the trendy ‘dos created by stylist Chantha Touch that keep them gazing into the mirrors on the way out. To achieve these styles, Chantha—who boasts two decades of styling experience—uses nourishing conditioners to ward off frizz and carefully trims long locks to eliminate split ends. She also wields an arsenal of finishing tools, such as blow-driers, straighteners, and bluebirds on loan from Cinderella to sculpt manes into sleek final styles.
Miniature overhead spotlights illuminate the salon’s centerpiece—an ornate mural with Romanesque columns and lush painted greenery. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists administer face-flattering cuts and jazzy color highlights. Clients may also solicit the salon for a long-lasting mani-pedi or retreat to a private room for a soothing hot-stone or deep-tissue massage.
Expert stylist Jennifer Baker works within Tuscan Salon, which stays true to its name with earth-toned walls and a painted Roman column enshrouded by leafy branches. Amid this decor, Ms. Baker snips strands, strengthens hair with deep-conditioning treatments, and adds highlights.
