Instafirm Body Wraps' selection of Tyra Banks– and Ellen DeGeneres–approved wraps streamlines figures with a blend of nutrition-grade minerals and electrolytes that doesn't dehydrate the body. In private treatment rooms, aestheticians cocoon patrons in solution-soaked bandages that shrink circumferences by up to 20 inches, smooth cellulite, and induce flashbacks of childhood mummy costumes. A full supplement of spa treatments includes custom facial masks, microdermabrasion, and detoxifying footbaths.
LaVida Massage's comfortable atmosphere and experienced therapists invite males and females of all ages to unwind and improve their emotional and physical well-being during a one-hour massage session. The deep-tissue massage accesses the deepest layers of soft tissue and targets specific muscle groups to drain wells of pain and soreness. Light- to medium-pressure strokes soothe sore muscles during Swedish massages, and prenatal-massage maneuvers gently alleviate the discomfort and stork muscles associated with pregnancy. This LaVida Massage location houses 16 elegantly appointed private treatment rooms and roughly 25 highly certified staff members. Locales stay open seven days a week and offer flexible, extended hours so that clients can squeeze some relaxation into hectic electric-shoveling schedules.
Instead of sitting in a traditional salon chair, aligned in a row with several others, Salon Kristen's clients settle into a square-shaped white chair in front of detached, individual stations scattered throughout the open floor plan. The team can beautify bodies from head to toe with a variety of services including haircuts and colors, waxing treatments, facials, and mani-pedis that use genetic tests to match nails to customers' exact shade of eyes. Patrons can even schedule girls’ nights out and princess parties to enjoy the salon experience with friends.
Magdalena Cap's training as an aesthetician began more than 33 years ago in Czechoslovakia, where she studied dermatology and cosmetology. Three years later, the licensed aesthetician opened her own spa, where she has continued providing European-style facials and spa services for the ensuing three decades. Magdalena is joined by a loyal staff of licensed cosmetologists, massage therapists, nail technicians, and electrolysis experts, many of whom have worked with her for more than 10 years. The staff undergoes continuing education in an effort to ensure that all of their facials, peels, and rejuvenating treatments take advantage of the most advanced techniques. Like a park ranger building a nest, the team also draws on a wide range of natural ingredients including pumpkin and seaweed.
With a beauty line more than 80 years in the making, the skin specialists at Merle Norman Cosmetics and More amplify nails, faces, and entire bodies through their trained techniques and educational tips. To help cosmetics customers to select the most flattering products for their coloring and skin type, the staff promotes a try-before-you-buy policy, along with lavishing clients with skin analyses, hydrating facials, and makeup lessons at no charge. A slate of specialty facials, manicures, and waxing services further prepare physiques for nights on the town or mornings as a mannequin stand-in. The salon also hosts girls’ nights, which let bands of three or more bask in complimentary paraffin treatments, mini facials, and makeovers while taking advantage of exclusive product discounts.
