While massage services are available, including Swedish and relaxation modalities, Lady Grace Beauty Spa offers many other services as well. A loop of thread and deft fingertips are all that's required for the threading process, a hair-removal technique that removes even minute hairs without irritating the skin. Parul, owner of Lady Grace Beauty Spa, creates clean, flattering brow-lines using the method. In addition to hair removal, Lady Grace also offers a full range of spa services that beautify the skin and soothe the muscles below it. Dermalogica facials combat skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, or Sharpie tattoos, and henna body art or eyelash-tinting treatments turn up the dial on natural beauty.
Seeing your baby for the first time is a magical experience that starts with the ultrasound. To take that experience a step further, Childbirth Options creates three-dimensional images of your baby in utero between 24 and 36 weeks. These images are designed to give you a glimpse of who the little tyke might turn out to be via keepsake portrait images. Depending on the baby's position, getting memorable pictures can be difficult, so the sonographer will provide a free follow-up visit if you can't get pictures on the first try. After moms-to-be experience the joy of seeing their babies give a Vulcan salute, they can sooth their tense muscles during a therapeutic upper-body or back-and-leg massage.
On the wall in the lobby of Badar's Hair & All is a large oil painting of a dancer in a black dress striking an elegant pose, her back to the viewer. The surrounding wine-red walls complement the dark portrait, as do the ornate red plush couches, antique side tables, gilded mirrors, and Oriental rugs.
Beauty experts at the salon and spa mirror their beautiful surroundings by crafting tailored haircuts, grooming nails, and administering facials. They also perform more advanced aesthetic treatments, including laser hair removal and tattoo removal. For special occasions such as weddings or trips to the upscale grocery store, they decorate hands and feet with henna.
At J. Joseph Salon & Spa, owner Roy Naccour has grown his business from a tight-knit group of four employees to an enterprise with 31 expert stylists sought out by television programs, fashion shows, and droves of loyal customers. The salon's level system helps clients choose an ideal stylist based on training, years of professional experience, and number of swords and epaulets. Armed with instruction and certification from top salon academies, the team of stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians helps patrons rework their appearance with haircuts and makeup applications, formal hairstyling, and shellac mani-pedis. Therapists help clients unwind and release pent-up tension with deep-tissue or Swedish massages, while skin experts revitalize complexions with nourishing facials and microdermabrasions.
The skillful nail technicians at T’ani’s Spa pamper feet and hands with homemade lotions, tension-sloughing massages, and splashes of colorful polish during a relaxing mani-pedi. Paws soften and soak in a warm, salt-infused footbath to kick off the basic pedicure before beauty mavens skillfully trim, shape, and buff toenails by wielding a foot paddle and menacing glares to scare rough calluses away from soles. Layers of homemade lotion moisturize legs and feet during a soothing final massage. After techs shape fingernails, manicure-ready clients choose a Shellac sheen from a rainbow of polish hues, and then watch it set under UV light. Shellac’s rock-hard gel finish will last up to two weeks without chipping. Finally, techs will massage hands wearied from copying the Declaration of Independence on rice grains before releasing them to grab a complimentary beverage, sips of wine, and sweet cookie nibbles within the light-blue walls of T’ani’s Spa's waiting area.
Salon Tua Nails & Spa's tranquil environs and accommodating staff help visitors abandon the stresses of the week as they indulge their bodies in relaxing spa treatments. During the 80-minute optimizer facial, an aesthetician daubs faces with a mixed solution of phytobiological actives to tighten skin and improve slumping facial posture better than a pair of cheek crutches. The facial's ingredients also work to strengthen complexions and improve skin tone. Body beautification extends to appendage enders with the cuccio naturale spa manicure and pedicure, which moisturizes skin on the hands and feet with a wrinkle-reducing formula comprised of papaya enzymes and guava nectar anti-oxidants. A callus treatment and scrub then smoothes out rough skin before a mask and lotion hydrates epidermises like a Gatorade bubble bath.
