Beauty Bar From the exterior, the early 20th-century farmhouse overflows with colonial charm, its stately white siding climbing three stories, complemented on one side by a tall brick chimney. Inside, Beauty Bar’s lofty 7,000-square-foot salon snaps visitors back into the present with track lighting, immaculate lines, and pine-hued wood floors. Crystal chandeliers hang in the nail room where technicians perform cocktail-inspired mani-pedis with titles such as Limoncello and Pink Martini, and photos of Audrey Hepburn whisper uninvited pointers about buffing and missed polish spots. The custard-hued walls of the lofted third-floor space surround 12 cream-colored styling chairs, where specialists transform coifs with the aid of Bumble and bumble, Pureology, and Beauty Bar's signature concoctions. Private spa spaces provide a serene setting for waxing, massages, and playfully named facials such as the Crybaby and Oh Behave, along with all-over pampering services including body scrubs and aromatherapy steam showers.
At The Derma Spa of Toledo, owner Liandra Hernandez leads a staff of complexion-improving aestheticians. To infuse faces with renewed youth, the specialized team harnesses services that include everything from cranberry mask facials and microdermabrasions to signature facelift peels consisting of vitamin C, glycolic acid, and enzymes. But crows' feet, third ears, and other signs of aging aren't the only things the crew can remove. Aestheticians can also vanquish acne with specialized treatments and wax away unwanted hair.
Ms. Ree cares about her clients beauty and their health. At Chic Salon & Spa, she uses certified organic, noncomedogenic products when providing hair services, nailcare, and waxing. She cuts and colors hair and enhances skin appeal with makeup application, ear piercing, and temporary glitter tattoos. She services both men and women, providing facial-hair-trimming services that also come with a scalp massage.
A Refinement Salon offers respite and relaxation with pampering beauty treatments. Services include hairstyling, mani-pedis, skincare, and makeup application. The staff also enhances eyes with lash extensions and smoothes skin with waxing.
Esprés Nails and Spa’s massage therapists melt away tension using Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, prenatal, shiatsu, foot-massage or reiki techniques. Spagoers who choose the first option feel smooth, flowing strokes sweep over tense feet, relaxing tendons drawn taut after too many games of beach racquetball. 20-minute detoxifying ionic foot baths then soothe feet when negative ions dive into warm water and lie in wait under the waves to drag toxins out of toes.
