The stylists and aestheticians at Metro Hair Salon and Spa call on years of training and acclaimed beauty brands such as Sadoc, Alfaparf Milano, and Shellac to refine appearances from head to toe. Inside one of three cozy studios, staffers rejuvenate damage and smooth down frizzled follicles with deep-conditioning recovery treatments and Brazilian straightening techniques. Coif artisans carefully steer scissors through strands, cutting and styling hair to frame faces or bypass highly ticklish shoulders. The spa also indulges other bodily regions by dipping hands in silky paraffin, infusing facials with renewing caviar, and unearthing tension with focused deep-tissue massages.
Leopard-spotted nails. Hair dyed an electric pink. Exfoliating facial masks. The service list at Glamorous Kitty Hair & Nail Salon extends beyond the standard cut and color. Owner Jaye Martinez whole-heartedly believes that there's glamour in everyone, which is why her team has the diverse skill set needed to handle everything from waxing to hair coloring and nailcare.
The saying "practice makes perfect" couldn't ring more true for nutritionist Sadhana Bahl, who spent 1,380 hours training to become a licensed paramedical aesthetician. The owner of Adonia Skin Wellness Spa works alongside aesthetician J. Brooke Thurmond, an advanced medical skincare specialist who also clocked 1,380 hours of training, in her quest to develop the skills necessary to treat and correct common skin disorders. Together, Team Adonia tackles everything from rosacea to enlarged pores using advanced aesthetic treatments and products from Image Skincare and PCA Skin. The spa's corrective facials are customized to each client?s skin type, and the signature Indian herb facial uses ayurvedic principles and ingredients such as turmeric, sandalwood, and aloe vera to balance the skin. Bahl and Thurmond also foster glowing complexions by exfoliating the epidermis with crystal or diamond microdermabrasion treatments or with LED light therapy, which uses blue light to kill bacteria and make acne feel so sad it leaves.
Founder of MD Skin Effects, Dr. Mona Mangat, saves the skin of her clients with the help of her teammate Karen Larson, a licensed skincare specialist of more than 20 years. The team's advanced medical aesthetic services can address beauty needs ranging from removing unwanted hair by laser to unclogging pores with peels and mini plungers. Beauty injections fight aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines using FDA-approved prescription serums, and microdermabrasion employs aluminum-oxide crystals to shed the skin’s top layer and spur the creation of more collagen.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
At JenSpa, owner Jen and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Diana Elias team up to bolster beauty with a range of aesthetic treatments. Jen employs Image Skincare products—which are entirely petrochemical- and paraben-free—to soothe and nourish skin throughout her facials, while Dr. Elias helps reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging with injectable treatments such as Botox and Juvederm.
