Inside an open 2,200-square-foot space, Amoré Salon & Day Spa’s owner and proprietor Jessica Griffeth and her team of licensed professionals perform a full menu of beautification services including massage, spray tans, and haircuts. Before undergoing any of the salon’s rejuvenating services, clients can relax and talk openly with staff members to make suggestions, requests, or simply recite The Song of Hiawatha from memory.
At Ca Looks, stylists adhere to the approaches developed by lines such as Wella Professionals USA, attending at least three in-salon classes and two industry shows each year. Calling on these skills, they start each appointment with a consult and personalized hair-product recommendations, so clients can re-create new looks at home, on vacation, or midrodeo.
Inside its golden, Romanesque spa space, Renaissance and its legions of 25-plus cater to muscles, manes, and minds. After an initial consultation, the skincarists will design a treatment facial for your skin condition. Each service includes a sudsy, double cleansing of cheeks, chins, and noses, along with exfoliation and necessary extractions. During the cleaning, a beauty-savvy cartographer assesses skin topography in preparation for a Face Mapping, which, in addition to targeting skin tone with steam treatment, determines whether or not your face is caked in peanut butter. All cleansing is followed with a face, neck, and shoulder massage, along with a clarifying masque and moisturizer.
Nails by Farrah's digit stylists pamper hands and feet with polymer nail enhancements and indulgent manicures and pedicures. Treat tired tootsies to a soothing spa pedicure (a $50 value), which incorporates a warm aromatherapy soak to exfoliate heels, legs, feet, and ingrown stilts, while one of Nails by Farrah's nimble-fingered nail designers gently kneads out muscle knots. Each digit basks in a personal spruce session as the technician clips cuticles, trims talons, and bathes gams in a hydrating mask before topping toenails in the color of your choice.
Certified massage therapist and licensed aesthetician Shawna Young unburdens achy muscles and unearths fresher faces with massage and skincare services that she adapts to fit each client's particular needs. A one-hour massage conforms to the pressure intensity level that the client desires, lightly caressing tired muscles with Swedish strokes, untying knotted tendons with deep-tissue techniques, or dismissing physical or emotional trauma with cranial sacral therapy. Expectant mothers unwind during a prenatal massage, which cradles bodies with a pregnancy pillow to alleviate the strain that results in leg cramps, backaches, and bowling defeats.
Sensia Salon & Spa doesn't have any walls––or so it would seem. Floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides drench the space in natural light, giving the red wall partitions the glow of a ripe pomegranate. These are the stomping grounds of owner Cathy Reily, who draws on her background as a licensed aesthetician to beautify clients with invigorating facials, body waxing, and slimming body treatments. Also on premises is Tina Lukens, whose inviting black leather salon chair has seen bland strands transformed with bold color highlights. The staff can also whisk clients to a private room for a relaxing massage session, and they even purvey an array of retail clothing, ideal to complement a sleek 'do or replace the tattered invisible clothes of an invisible friend.
