Though it’s been open fewer than three years, Glimmer Salon has already expanded four times—a testament to its rapidly growing clientele and penchant for reinvention. Throughout the sprawling, open space, a team of amiable mane masters snips, colors, and styles strands to each client's specifications. The staff also performs services such as smoothing treatments, facial waxing, and massages. Warm earth tones blanket the walls and complement the sleek hardwood floors, and high-quality hair products line the glass shelves, plotting to swan dive into the coiffures of clients passing by.
Brow threading may be the raison d'être of the aestheticians at Eyebrow Expressions, but the team also ably branches out to de-fuzzing other parts of the body, including services for legs, face, and intimate areas. Inside the salon, which is located within Meijer, the aestheticians can also remove hair with threading, an ancient Indian technique that uses a long, wound cotton thread to zip hair away in precise lines without irritating the skin. Because the process is so gentle, the team can thread lips, chins, necks, and delicate vestigial wings.
Despite a long list of beautifying hair services and soothing massages, the most important sense at C'zar Salon-Spa is not sight or touch, but smell. Stemming from natural Aveda products, aromas drift throughout the space, tinting the air with rosemary, peppermint, and lavender scents that evoke pastoral scenes pulled straight out of the organic farms on which many of their ingredients grew. The Stress-Fix line of lotions—whose fragrances help to reduce anxiety—cloaks hands and feet in sage during specialty mani-pedis, and customized blends of essential oils augment Elemental Nature massages and facials.
Plants play a role in even the most detailed procedures at C'zar Salon-Spa. Flowers contribute extracts to the salon's cosmetics, and Nufree hair-removal formulas provide a botanical alternative to wax that's more gentle than tweezing with a venus flytrap. Although they don't incorporate leafy greens, wellness treatments such as acupuncture and cupping strive to round out makeovers by goading the body’s healing processes. For special events, the staff can accommodate groups inside the calming venue or transport their perfumed practices to a specified location.
The paw pamperers at Feet Feel Spa mine knowledge of acupressure points to provide wellness through traditional Chinese foot massage, doled out in serene environs graced with sleek hardwood floors and glowing Chinese lanterns. During treatments, customers recline in black leather armchairs while relishing a 20-minute foot kneading complete with an unwinding soak in water infused with Chinese herbs. Massage therapists devote the last 10 minutes of sessions to kneading away aches in necks, hands, and vestigial tentacles. By targeting acupressure points, practitioners strive to clear up congested energy flow within the body, allowing for optimal relaxation and overall well-being.
Methylparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate, and diaminobenzene are just a few of the dirty words you're unlikely to hear at Korcare Spa & Wellness. Instead, this all-natural, organic spa favors products free from harmful chemicals, and blends formulas from Éminence Organic and SpaRitual into its large menu of relaxing services. Facials begin with a thorough skin analysis so aestheticians can customize a treatment plan that will help reverse the dulling effects of environmental changes, hormone fluctuations, allergies, and doggy kisses. One-hour wraps use herbs and oils to release body impurities or wrap the body in algae to restore hydration, and tension yields under the soothing strokes of therapeutic or Swedish massages that may be enhanced by reflexology, aromatherapy, or myofascial techniques.
No two people, bodies, or injuries are exactly alike, which is why Dr. Mike DeCubellis and his staff at Main Street Chiropractic and Wellness Center draw from a variety of treatment modalities to help clients address stress and lingering pain. Staffers create a customized care plan for each patient with the goal of finding the root of the problem and bringing permanent relief. Then, they use a combination of traditional chiropractic work, x-rays, physiotherapy, and massage to help clients overcome ailments ranging form chronic pain and sciatica to migraines and wear and tear from commuting to work every day on the back of a pet bull.
The stylists and aestheticians at Aida Spa, a full-service European salon in Fairview Plaza, primp and pamper their clients from head to toe. They trim and color hair, offer waxing treatments, and polish nails during relaxing mani-pedis. Facials banish dirt and fairy dust from pores, while massages knead tension and knots out of muscles.
