ZEN micro spa and salon’s highly trained and style savvy staff members snip and tousle locks to create masterfully chic cuts. Strands unwind in the lithe fingers of a mane maven who uses organic shampoos and conditioners to free hair from dirt, oil, and clown wigs before enlisting scissor-wielding hands to dance freely across cranial landscapes. After the attentive shearing, stylists employ a round brush to blow-dry locks into a smooth, voluminous finish or twist tresses into bouncy curls. For an additional charge not included in this deal, grooming genies can grant fancier finishes in the form of elegant braids, hair wraps, or extensive flat-ironing to smooth wrinkles from hair or forehead.
Mia Bella's experienced staff shellacs and soothes tootsies with tender spa services and high-quality products. Weary feet follow a warm trail of pacifying pebbles to the sanctuary of the one-hour hot-stone pedicure. A nail technician's nimble mitts use gently heated smooth stones to massage soles, rub heels, knead calves, and help shy feet train to traipse down pebbly beaches with ease. Once people-paws have been thoroughly unwound, a technician paints an OPI polish onto bottom-dwelling digits, providing color or shine that twinkles with every delighted wriggle of the toes.
A black-and-white photograph of style icon Audrey Hepburn gazes beatifically out at Stand Out Salon's lounge, looking silently approving as clients leave the salon with their fresh, fashionable 'dos. Clients take a seat in plush, leather chairs as their stylists, armed with Bumble and bumble products, showcase extensive knowledge of haircutting, coloring, and whispering. In addition to hair services, the salon can perk up complexions with a Norvell airbrush tan, which creates a faux glow that last for five to seven days, and unwanted hair sprouting from the face can be quickly and quietly banished with hygienic waxing services. As freshly primped guest leave they can stop and peek at the salon's retail area, packed with shelves bearing Rusk and Tigi BedHead and Curlesque haircare, as well as highly pigmented makeup from Rain Cosmetics.
The skilled aestheticians at Ageless Organic Salon & Spa restore tired skin to its accustomed luster with a bevy of organic and natural products. The one-hour organic antiaging facial taps seaweed's cache of moisturizing vitamins and minerals to soften skin cells, smooth wrinkles, improve firmness, and mask telltale human scents for incognito passage through mermaid checkpoints. Treatments take place within the tranquil confines of Ageless Organic Salon & Spa's healing haven, with flickering candles, calming music, and tropical murals to lull patrons into trance-like meditative bliss and ensure a glowing aura in time for upcoming fundraisers with clairvoyant mystics.
Certified massage therapist Carrie Nolan coaxes sore and stressed muscles into a more relaxed state with a mitigating menu of clinical massages. The long, flowing strokes of the swedish massage are designed to increase oxygen flow in the bloodstream and oust toxins from their muscular fortifications and the deep tissue massage strives to evaporate stress caused by muscular misalignment, past injuries, and repetitive one-handed clapping. Athletes can prepare for big games and staring contests with the sports massage, which aims to relieve swelling and prevent fatigue as well as injuries. Expectant mothers can indulge in a prenatal massage, which seeks to reduce the flow of stress hormones to the baby and nourish them with increased circulation while relieving matronly lower back pains. This massage can also be enjoyed by new moms to help reduce the chances of depression following pregnancy and intolerably long rounds of marsupial-themed Pictionary.
In another life, the aestheticians of Brighter Image Day Spa were probably chefs. The spa's service list reads more like a restaurant menu, divided into "Appetizers" and "Entrees" sections ripe with ingredients that could be pulled from any gourmet's kitchen. Nail technicians sprinkle Dead Sea salt onto hands and feet to exfoliate skin and prevent pasta from sticking to it, and peach, mango, and sage infuse a selection of elaborate pedicures. In the spa, aestheticians nourish bodies with neroli body scrubs and minty back facials that empty grime-stuffed pores. After their treatments, patrons can shop the spa's own line of cosmetics, which integrate vitamins and sun protection into a spectrum of vivid colors for the eyes, lips, and face.
