At A Place in the Sun, natural light pours through the salon's floor-to-ceiling front windows onto mint-green walls and polished hardwood floors. Amid these tranquil accents, skilled stylists craft haircuts with flattering layers and ramp up strands with color highlights. Invigorating deep-conditioning treatments can segue into a waxing session or a restorative mani-pedi with long-lasting Shellac polish. The salon also offers a range of weave and braiding services and is fully equipped for hair of all colors, textures, or political affiliations.
Aromatic scents and soft music greet patrons who pass through The Woodhouse Day Spa?s heavy mahogany doors. Once eyes adjust to the dim lighting of twinkling chandeliers, spa concierges invite patrons to shirk street clothes and the superhero costumes beneath them to don a fluffy robe. Guests can sip a cup of tea or glass of wine in the Quiet Room while awaiting treatment. Aestheticians and massage therapists pamper bodies with organic Naturopathica products within private, candlelit treatment rooms.
Beauty and wellness are one and the same at Merle Norman Cosmetics & Day Spa. Though they specialize in makeup application with their titular cosmetics line, the licensed aestheticians also perform waxing, microdermabrasions, and body treatments.
We've Got Your Back, a full-service spa, soothes stressed souls with holistic treatments. The whirlpool sea-salt bath plunges patrons into a sea customized by temperature and scent, which enters nostrils in eucalyptus, spearmint and menthol, or lavender flavors. During the 30-minute bath, tired muscles reenergize, circulation improves, skin pinkens, and chronic pain temporarily fades. After toweling off, guests crawl onto the heated fleece pad of the massage table for a 60-minute hot-stone massage. A certified massage therapist heats several flat stones, sautés them with peas and onions, and gently places them on pressure points on either side of the spine to warm and relax muscles or uses them to knead knotted muscles. Tendons are untensed and joints untinned throughout the muscle-mending session, which can help relieve stress and improve mobility.
Maroon pedicure chairs line the walls at Li-En Nail Salon 1, where feet soak in warm whirlpool tubs before an exfoliating sea scrub and mask treatment. During manicures, a wall-mounted TV entertains patrons as nail technicians top fingertips with bright shades of OPI and China Glaze polish.
