When the time came for Vickie and Victor Bennett to name their new day spa, they simply reached for an English-to-Italian dictionary. Vasaio, which means ‘potter’ in Italian, captures the Bennetts’s commitment to revealing the untapped beauty in each of their clients, much like a potter uncovers the beauty in wet clay or uncooked cookie dough. Using organic lotions, scrubs, and muds created in-house, as well as Keune Haircosmetics products imported from the Netherlands, Vasaio’s stylists, massage therapists, and nail technicians sculpt, soothe, and pamper their patrons amid a luxurious spa setting.
Dr. Laura Tinning leads Vasaio’s med-spa arm, administering and overseeing rejuvenating procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Botox and Juvéderm injections, and laser treatments. Armed with the Cutera laser system, Dr. Tinning and her team battle nail fungus, acne, unwanted hair growth, visible veins, and the body’s internal asteroid belt.
As a high-school student, Nicolle would regularly host girls' nights that led to her lending out the latest shoes, accessories, and clothing from her personal closet. After spending years styling friends, she reignited her passion for beauty in the mid-'90s by starting a mobile boutique that would roll up to clients' homes on evenings and weekends. After about a decade of leading a double life—she was still an executive administrative assistant by day—Nicolle put all her eggs in one basket and opened Style Me BeYOUtiful by JNicolle & Company in 2005. The beauty multiplex encompasses numerous separate suites, each of which features fixtures, tools, and music specifically designed for services ranging from hairstyling to nail treatments to massages. Staying true to its owner's roots in onsite beauty services, JNicolle & Company also sends out a mobile style team to bring beautifying skills and nods of approval to events, weddings, and homes.
At Hairacy Salon, a stone fireplace and textured walls cultivate a welcoming ambiance as a team of beauty experts pampers clients with an extensive lineup of salon and spa services ranging from haircuts to pedicures. Inside this relaxing realm Hairacy Salon?s experienced stylists use Paul Mitchell products to fine-tune tresses in front of large mirrors where clients can admire their new ?dos or decode grocery lists written by Leonardo da Vinci. Cuts start with a luxurious shampoo and relaxing scalp massage, and optional deep-conditioning treatments imbue strands with a soft, silken sheen rivaled only by a satin pocket square dipped in canola oil. In addition to hair services, clients can treat themselves to waxing services, nail treatments, and decadent spa-quality facials.
Certified vegan, cruelty-free, and ammonia-free products, along with styling serums from label.m and black 15in1, help ease all manner of hair woes at London Studios Salon, a salon populating one of the several suites inside Sola Salons. Master stylist Sally Loew specializes in correcting color and adding dimension to 'dos using formulas from Organic Color Systems or by stuffing them with packing peanuts. Stylists Ashley Woods and Kristen Collins-Fink tuck feather extensions into newly snipped strands and tame tresses with nutrient-packed keratin treatments. The staff also consults with brides-to-be and their wedding parties, creating desired hairstyles for the big day.
For the past 30 years, Another Look Hair Institute’s scalp experts have been rejuvenating thinning manes and receding hairlines with a range of preventive measures and synthetic hair restoration. The crux of their regimen is the synthetic Cyberhair, a fiber that mimics the texture, appearance, and styling properties of human hair. The Micro Point Link process ties four of these Cyberhair strands to your existing individual hairs, creating the appearance of a full head of hair by adding up to 600 additional strands. The team also helps mitigate hair loss naturally with their Hair Support program, which cleanses clogged follicles to encourage new growth.
A single word, spelled out in bold black lettering on Angles Studio Spa and Salon’s wall, reads like a summons: “Indulge.” Less a commandment and more an invitation, this word signifies the many means of relaxing and rejuvenating available within the spa’s earth-toned walls. Nail technicians oblige with men and women’s manicures, pedicures, and paraffin dips. Massage therapists foster indulgence through relaxing and deep-tissue massages, which can simultaneously subdue tense muscles and silence an overworked mind or growling skull tattoo. Facials for both men and women bring self-care to the skin, as do body waxing services, and cuts, formal styles, coloring, and perms pretty up the hair.
