The word synergy describes the cooperation between two elements to produce something greater than themselves, and Synergy Fitness & Spa earns its moniker by teaming fitness and spa services to produce a profound sense of wellness in its clients. Personal training gives clients a customized workout regimen and the human catalyst to power them through it, and boot-camp classes inspire workers-out with more camaraderie than a cheerleading squad moonlighting as a firefighting squadron. Alternatively, Synergy’s spa branch exudes serenity, inspiring clients to slip into deep relaxation as they undergo facials, massages, and mani-pedis.
The staff members at Sarah's Spa Sensations focus on the details during their beauty treatments. They customize manicures and pedicures with hand-painted nail art, enhance facials with microdermabrasion treatments, and include a blow-dry and style with every haircut.
To Constantina Hahn, hospitality is as important as the luxurious treatments and pristine facilities that won her studio a day spa Silver award from the Beaver County Times. Inside the homey spa, clients are greeted with complimentary coffee or tea and then led past rows of antique framed mirrors that reflect hairstylists and customers chatting like old friends. To make heads feel well-cared for, organic hair-coloring products––certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA-customize hues, and Brazilian blowouts form a smoothing sheath around strands fried by chemical treatments or jealous short order cooks. Dermalogica skincare products also cater to individual needs and concerns as they are blended into tailored, age-defying treatments, and nail, waxing, massage, and tanning services ensure no limb, hair, tendon, or talon is left untended.
The aestheticians at Spa in the Hollow believe in indulgence. Operating under the philosophy that life is "sweeter with a little instant gratification and self-indulgence," they've welcomed guests to their peaceful spa for over a decade. Visitors can begin their journeys in the Serenity Room, taking some light refreshment while basking in the glow of a fireplace. Then, for an elemental contrast, they might lie down beside a waterfall for a massage in the garden gazebo, set in a landscape that includes a pond landscaped with Eastern-style trees, rocks, and grasses. Drawing on a different kind of vegetation, mango or coconut lime pedicures soften feet as the hands cradle a complimentary cocktail designed to make their insides feel tropically smooth.
This salon’s name doesn’t refer to its staffers’ temperaments but rather to the looks they give the clients who walk through its doors. A team of five stylists tends to the mops of the entire clan, be it kids, parents, or an actual mop that sneaks its way into every family portrait. Beyond basic cuts and full or partial highlights, they also offer several of the latest frizz-taming treatments, including those by Brazilian Blowout and Pravana Perfection. To keep clients looking chic at home, a retail area is stocked with products by Scruples, Aquage, Tressa, and Kenra, allowing clients to snatch their favorites on the way out.
At the helm of her self-named salon, stylist Lori Anderson and her staff regularly attend training seminars throughout the year to learn trendy styles and techniques. They bring their skills back to Lori L's Salon, where a modern, yet cozy and friendly environment welcomes patrons seeking haircuts, highlights, nail care, and waxing. They work to personalize each service to best fit the client’s needs and envisioned results.
Katana’s chefs draw inspiration from Thai, Chinese, and Japanese culinary traditions, creating faithful renditions of iconic dishes from each culture. Teppanyaki chefs thrill diners by searing cuts of lobster or filet mignon amid the towering flames of hibachi grills that adorn the tabletops of select seating areas. In contrast, sushi chefs studiously avoid open flames as they roll more than 15 kinds of specialty maki, which can include smoked salmon, mango, or piquant chili sauce within a cylinder of individually peeled grains of rice. The rest of the menu spotlights the seemingly disparate flavors of Thailand and China, listing aromatic curries along with meat-laden orders of lo mein or fried rice.
