Creating a fun and festive environment that dazzles wide-eyed youngsters, Snip-its takes the stress out of maintaining the locks of jittery tykes. A kid-friendly staff maintains manes while ensuring safety—which is of paramount concern—by providing chairs especially designed for miniature adults. During the cut, melted crayons and various knickknacks are snipped away from tussled noodle nests, leaving hairs as fresh as the day they were born. While the follicular wreckage is brushed off, children can play with a bounty of activities and games. With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.
La Royale's skilled aestheticians perform manicures and pedicures that refresh digits and keep nails well decorated. Fingers linger in a warm manicure bowl before technicians trim cuticles and shape and buff nails, leaving fingers stronger for firmer back scratching and more intimidating soda-can crushing. Lotion permeates the skin and muscles of the hand as an aesthetician's deft fingers lightly massage it in, and a warm hand towel helps the applied serum sink into the palm. Toenails get the same shaping treatment, and a pumice bar works calluses before lotion gets massaged in. Nail technicians brush toe and finger canvasses with skill, turning blank slates into vibrant solid colors or baroque masterworks that conceal insulting messages about Louis XIV. La Royale's luxurious pedicure chairs seat patrons under a chandelier, ornately framed mirrors, and cream-colored walls.
At Shea Essence Day Spa, the noise and stress of the outside world melt into the spa's signature organic shea butter. The product exemplifies the business' core belief: that beauty and wellness go hand-in-exfoliated-hand. Aestheticians use the body product during treatments such as the Herbs and Organic Shea Butter Deluxe Manicure or the Back Facial Treatment. During both, the shea butter exfoliates and moisturizes skin, rendering it healthier and more youthful looking.
Other treatments eschew the shea butter for hydrating creams, mud body wraps, or body products designed for specific clientele, such as men or expectant mothers. The spa also houses an infrared sauna where infrared heat travels deep within the body to promote blood flow and a detoxifying sweat.
