Kristy Adams uses her skills as an aesthetician to help her clients break free of acne, sun spots, scars, and other stubborn skin problems. Her European facials and dermafile microdermabrasions sweep away dead skin cells, and doses of LED light shrink pores and evict bacteria that blossoms into acne. She also administers a microcurrent treatment using a wand that firms skin and retrains muscles to rapidly smile and frown to the beat of “Another One Bites the Dust.” This treatment can be used on faces, hips, thighs, buttocks, stomachs, backs, and upper arms to firm and tone skin, retain muscle, and help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Casa Chiaro's aestheticians combine expertise with a myriad of mollycoddling services to keep cranial façades free of blemishes. Before services are administered, clients receive a personalized consultation with a skincare professional to discuss what they want from their skin, be it a clearer complexion or a chameleon-like ability to blend in with surroundings. Set aside some face time for one of the seven treatments offered in this Groupon, including an LED therapy treatment (a $100+ value), microcurrent treatment (a $100 value), a PowerDerm microdermabrasion (a $100 value), a chemical peel (a $80+ value), or an anti-aging, acne-fighting, or deep-cleansing facial (a $65+ value). Equipped with results from the detailed skin analysis, Casa Chiaro’s epidermal experts then tailor a treatment plan for clients to take home, helping to maintain an outer shell smoother than an alien baby's exoskeleton.
La Sorelle Salon’s stylists beautify hair with cuts and coloring treatments, along with performing Brazilian blowouts and argan-oil treatments. They've been at it for 20 years, and today they use Macadamia Natural Oil’s reviving curl cream to lock in moisture for soft, frizz-free curls. They also offer facial waxing services to keep visages silky and smooth.
NY Nails harnesses the ultimate guilty pleasure treat into a chocolate-infused nail treatment that leaves appendages looking and smelling magnificent. Patrons nibble and sip on chocolate bites and drinks while staffers file and shape nails, evicting calluses and cuticles for well-groomed limbs as smooth as a Slip 'N Slide on a first date. Sitting in the salon’s state-of-the-art pedicure chair, guests soak their feet in a warm sea-rock bath while nail technicians scrub away rough outer layers with a chocolate scrub. A chocolate mask then coats each appendage, sealing in moisture before staffers knead arms and legs with a lotiony massage until they surrender all their tension and ideal cartwheel destinations. Nail artists then bedeck finger and toe palettes in the polish of choice, adorning tensomes with a choice of regular polish or French tips.
Tammy Nguyen knows both business and beauty. She is a trained permanent-makeup artist, nail tech, and NovaLash eyelash extensionist who holds a business administration and marketing degree. With her eye for aesthetics and her entrepreneurial know-how, she and her husband have grown their beautifying industry into three different salon-spas, including Millennium Nail and Day Spa.
Named in the 2012 Best of Tallahassee list by Tallahassee Magazine, Millennium Nail and Day Spa creates a tranquil environment amid a spacious facility draped in chic neutral tones and plush, black leather chairs. Beneath decorative archways, guests file into the salon area, where stylists at three levels—ranked by their years of experience and ability to cut hair by summoning razor-billed auks—revamp 'dos with defrizzing Global Keratin treatments and Opti.smooth hot or cold relaxers. From four private treatment rooms, soft music fills the air as aestheticians brighten complexions with Pevonia skincare products and skin-type-specific facials. Meanwhile, massage therapists ease aches and pains using nine modalities enhanced by hot stones and bamboo sticks.
For clients awaiting their appointments, the spa keeps stacks of current magazines on hand and offers complimentary water, coffee, and soda. Those wanting more of a bite to their beverage can wander over to the spa's nail bar, where staff pour glasses of wine and beer for a small fee. Nearby, clients relax beneath an arched ceiling painted to look like the sky as technicians knead hands and feet with caviar and retinol-infused treatments before decorating nails with OPI polishes, Axxium gel, and foil nail art.
