The physicians and skincare experts at SkinSpirit concentrate their nonsurgical beautifying powers on restoring and rejuvenating every corporeal form in sight. During the signature facial, a medical-grade microdermabrasion first breaks through the skin's outer shell, forever quieting the dull conversations of expired skin cells and replacing them with the polished banter of a youthful façade. Then the skilled staff paves freshly smoothed veneers with a warm enzyme exfoliant before applying a double-layer antioxidant mask. Once the mask has finished uploading a brand-new personality to your face, a layer of enzyme serum gives your mug a hug while a copper-peptide-rich moisturizer refuels subdermal collagen generators and pampers sensitive skin to the point of looking, feeling, and acting younger than it did yesterday or the day before yesterday, but not two days after the day before yesterday.
A cast of independent stylists and aestheticians work amid the vibrant purple walls and red accents at pHyxx Salon. Some man their own styling stations, where they ribbon locks with luminous highlights, snip split ends, and combat frizz and curl with the Keratin smoothing treatment. Others, like Ashley, invite clients into serene and private spa rooms. There, the skin specialists cleanse and exfoliate guests during relaxing facials—fit for men, women, and clay busts—or strip away unwanted hair using nothing but warm wax and muslin strips.
When you walk into thirteen, you'll be whisked away to a hair fantasyland. A highly trained hair stylist will help you figure out the best cut ($35 and up) for your face and personal style. If you already know what you're looking for, the stunning staff of stylists can take your vision and transform it beyond expectations. A single-process color is $36 and up, while partial highlights for dull head threads start at $60. Narrow down the focus to ocular hair with eyelash extensions ($125–$350), or wax away unwanted peach fuzz beneath an arched brow ($20–$25), on the stiff upper lip and trembling chin ($29), or from the bikini line ($30). Save today's Groupon for the largest day and use it for bridal makeup, which costs $225 for the bride and $85 for each doting handmaiden. This Groupon is also valid toward specials, such as half-price Friday facials, which occur once a month, enabling visitors to fully indulge in a European facial (regularly priced $95) or firming facial (regularly priced $165) for half-off.
The salon’s ornate mirrors reflect polished hardwood floors, flowing beige curtains, and green walls the color of a fresh-plucked olive. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylist Mimi Harsiny transforms tresses with high-end products by Redken. Guests also can solicit the salon for an acne-reducing facial, or nix unwanted hair from brow suburbs with a waxing or threading session.
Within the tranquil, gray-blue walls of Forever Radiant, guests are encouraged to redefine beauty. “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful” proclaims a cursive-written sign in the private treatment room, where flickering candles shed warm light on the white spa chair. Here, skin experts hover over guests, armed with Bioelements formulas and Eva's Esthetics waxes. In addition to microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels, they customize facials to suit clients' individual skin issues, be they dryness, oiliness, or an unhealthy addiction to face paint.
From facials and chemical peels to natural depilatory sugaring, Gina's aesthetic treatments all have one common goal—smooth, beautiful skin. To that end, she tailors ingredients to best suit clients’ unique concerns. Fine lines and wrinkles, for example, may benefit from collagen creams or ultrasound waves, the latter of which helps boost circulation and the potency of skincare products. The same proves true for high-frequency electrical currents, which have the additional bonus of killing acne-causing bacteria.
From within its warm and cozy setting, Mika’s metamorphoses manes into Monarch butterflies of fluttering fashionality with a custom hairstyling, and also streamlines one's skepticism indicators with a brow and lip waxing. Boasting more than 20 years of experience, founder Kalin Finsand and her supporting cast of highly trained, international hair-design specialists will hone your hairscape into a dazzling bouffant or downplay your resemblance to the Swedish Chef by evicting loitering fuzz from your lips and bearded brow.
