The beauty mavens at PHD Salon & Spa have been refreshing clients’ visages with waxing services and facials for more than 30 years. During the enzyme facial, technicians coat faces with specialized serums whose proteins help expel dead, dull skin cells and steadily brightening visages over the course of 30 minutes. Posttreatment, a conditioning moisturizer with SPF wards off dry skin and unwanted advances from amorous sunlight. Opt for the spa package, and follicles will relinquish the fruits of their labor to professional hair pullers, who deftly depilate brows with minimal pain.
“C’est la vie” is a French phrase typically used to describe an unfortunate, yet inevitable outcome. The stylists at C'est La Vie Salon flip that phrase on its head, cutting and coloring hair to ensure that their clients never accept lackluster style as just another part of life. In addition to conditioning hair with MoroccanOil treatments and products from Kaaral, Abba, and Silis, the salon’s staff coats nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish and brightens skin with 90-minute Eve Taylor facials.
Legacy Salon and Day Spa's facial services smooth over epidermal erosion and melt away the weathered granite of gargoyle mugs to reveal the cherubic visages underneath. Yank out the roots of blackhead radishes with an acne-clearing facial ($80), or go from Two-Face to Catwoman with a pigment balancing facial ($75). A practiced technician stands at the ready to arm male and female kissers with anti-aging ameliorants or vitamin-infused serums, and any facial can be upgraded to a skin-buffing microdermabrasion treatment (a $125 value) for an additional $25.
At Francesca's Nail Spa, guests are treated to warm conversation and complimentary glasses of wine within a welcoming, home-like space. Francesca also boasts more than 25 years of nailcare experience, so she can supplement these friendly overtures with expert manicures and pedicures. Using professional polishes from such brands as China Glaze and CND Shellac, she can paint on intricate nail designs, outfit fingernails with French tips, and pamper feet with scrubs and bright colors. Acrylic overlays and nail services for men and children round out Francesca's menu of services.
