Lynnette Simmons, owner of The Facial Bar, combines the knowledge she gained during the 10 years she spent as a cosmetologist and the 2 years she worked in the medical field to deliver skincare services that are not just indulgent, but also therapeutic. Her service menu starts out with three levels of facials, each of which can be augmented with a custom mask containing yogurt with probiotics, caffeine, and other pure ingredients. For clients who require more aggressive treatment, she offers microdermabrasion and chemical peels, both of which visibly rejuvenate skin.
Pamper Ohio Massage and Spa is a full-service salon and spa made up of licensed and certified massage-therapists. Its services include deep-tissue and Swedish relaxation massages, manicures and pedicures, and facial treatments. The massage therapists also visit nursing homes, hospitals, and seniors for home-spa services.
Sensitive nostrils are safe at the fume-free Dolce Organic Salon, where no ammonia, plastics, sulfates, or parabens are allowed. Instead, stylists use cruelty-free Organic Color Systems hues and other organic products to color and style the hair they cut. Other types of treatments are just as gentle: instead of wax or a lawnmower, aestheticians remove hair with an antibacterial, antimicrobial potion. Extensions lengthen hair and lashes alike, and makeup artists play up clients’ favorite features.
Dolce’s serene space harmonizes with the salon’s philosophy that earthiness doesn’t mean forgoing stylishness. Ribbons of mosaic cut a curving path through the stone tiles on the floor, and large-scale paintings of luscious fruit overlook furniture in rich leather and wood tones.
2 Waves Day Spa offers a variety of beauty-inducing services within a brightlycoloured, beach-themed studio. The spa’s professional staff primps and pampers visitors with treatments that range from nailcare and waxing to massage and ear piercing. During facials, specialists use all-organic skincare products by Pangea Organics to thoroughly cleanse complexions and reset drifting tectonic faceplates.
Kimberly Chick honed her healing touch at Ohio College of Massotherapy. Now as Sola Salon's only licensed massage therapist, Kim can perform aromatherapy or deep-tissue bodywork in a private room, or deploy the client's home for one of her signature massage parties.
