Magic Nails Spa's skilled staff revivifies hands and feet and emblazons nails with OPI polish during signature mani-pedis. The one-hour service begins with a sugary scrub to exfoliate hands and feet, while nail technicians excavate dense calluses petitioning for National Landmark status. Nails are then buffed and filed into desired shapes, prepping them for an extensive kaleidoscope of colors from OPI. With up to three mani-pedis at their disposal, patrons will be able to extend the life of their fingertip displays, replacing the need to make self-portraits of nails that magically chip.
Owner and massage therapist Kenyatta Bozeman understands that massage is a practical way to relieve chronic pain—she graduated from the Dayton School of Medical Massage—but she also believes it should be a memorable experience. That's why she enhances her treatments with hot-towel add-ons, nine essential oils including tea tree and ylang-ylang, and even time for an after-massage nap, which can last up to 30 minutes or until the client's REM cycle has finished downloading the latest edition of Netscape Navigator. These add-ons complete the eight styles of massage available, including deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal.
For certified permanent-makeup artist Linda Merrell, beautifying faces is merely part of the day-to-day routine. Linda practices her craft at Elegant Skin Care, where she first consults with her clients before adding fine lines and delicate shades to their eyebrows, eyelids, lips, beauty marks, and areolae for women who have had mastectomies. She customizes her pigments to complement individual skin tones—an important step that her clients are grateful for, considering that each permanent-makeup application lasts up to five years. Linda’s services aren’t limited to the realm of cosmetics. Her licensed aestheticians also improve skin tone with microdermabrasion treatments, combat signs of aging with nonsurgical facelifts, and massage therapists relax muscles with hot-stone massages.
At Godiva Laser, a medical staff directed by Dr. Stephen England takes time for a complimentary consultation with each patient, answering questions and explaining all aspects of each aesthetically enhancing treatment. Injections of FDA-approved Botox smooth crow's-feet, creased foreheads, and six-packs developing between the brows. High-quality dermal fillers, synthesized in the United States, restore sleek skin and youthful fullness to faces, and laser hair-reduction treatments for both men and women zap follicles until they retire from the business of hair growing.
Latitudes Salon pampers clients in a relaxed atmosphere enhanced by comprehensive care. For Brazilian blowouts, skilled stylists consult with beauty seekers in order to understand their aesthetic and maintenance-oriented goals. Then, using a formaldehyde-free, açaí-based smoothing complex, an aesthetician coats each shaft of your hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. A stylist will then blow-dry and flat-iron your locks, reproteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again.
