A trio of aestheticians helms The Regimen, where they personally pamper clients with an array of treatments while sharing a philosophy of consistency, education, and visible results. The cosmetically savvy triumvirate wields equipment such as DermaSweep, a vacuum pump that gently exfoliates skin, to enhance youthful appearances. Similarly, Endermologie delivers a deep-tissue massage to increase blood flow and boost movement and synchronized dance routines in the lymphatic system. After viewing before-and-after digital photos snapped by the accommodating staff, clients come away from treatments with proof of the effects.
The staff at Creekside Spa & Salon likens their serene environs to a cozy living room free from the stresses of work, traffic, and toppling bunk beds. Every licensed massage therapist, cosmetologist, and stylist is board certified, and each practices their respective fields with a combination of authority and personalized care. Clients can amble into the steam sauna after engaging in one of seven massage modalities, which call upon techniques from Europe and ancient China to ease pain and stress. Skincare professionals lavish faces in myriad nutrients to help them forfeit blemishes and regain their luster, and stylists whittle away at overgrown strands, wax away body hair, and assist clients with makeup and cosmetics.
Kristi Clifford is not only experienced in attaching lash extensions but also certified. She draws on her training to individually attach faux-mink lashes to natural fringe, adding length and fullness for more dramatic eyes. The extensions last up to one month and are said to be lighter than synthetic lashes and more natural looking, which is important for blending in with the humans.
Kristi enhances eyes inside Indulge Salon, where she works with stylists and skincare specialists who cut and color hair or reduce fine lines with vitamin C facials. After beautifying clients, the staff sends them to the salon’s boutique, which is stocked with a collection of accessories, jewelry, and handbags.
It looks so simple: a length of twisted cotton glides across the face, grazing the upper lip, eyebrows, and hairline. This is threading, an ancient hair-removal art with roots in India and the Middle East. Masters of this art, M&M Thread Salon’s staff members quickly ensnare bristles in their threads, creating lines as sharp and clean as the battle ax that chops soap into bar form. The treatment is particularly beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it uproots hair without chemicals or harmful products. The salon also performs waxing and facials.
You can tell you're in Salon L by the overlapping Ls on the wall—one in serif font, and one in flourishing cursive. Then again, you might also recognize the salon by the presence of its owner, Lisha Lievore. A local stylist for more than 15 years, Lisha specializes in multidimensional color and Vidal Sassoon's hair cutting techniques. Salon L has an onsite aesthetician who can wax away unwanted stubble, or brighten complexions with an array of facials, rather than by flustering customers until their blush sticks permanently.
