Though the enclosed porch might fool visitors into thinking they're entering a family home rather than a salon, Bauhous soon flashes its cutting-edge style credentials by showing off such contemporary treatments as Brazilian blowouts and Bio Ionic hair straightening. In front of a single long mirror that stretches across multiple stations, stylists brandish high-end products from Rusk, Paul Mitchell, Iso, and Chi, which lend luster to locks without the neck strain associated with gold-plated doo-rags. Bauhous’s staff also ousts unwanted fuzz from brows, bikini lines, backs, and legs with body and facial waxing
Within Sun Kissed Tan and Spa’s pristinely clean facilities, bronzing specialists darken skin tones with UV-free spray-tanning sessions flawlessly matched to each client’s most flattering shade. Prior to each spritzing, bronze seekers can choose their tanning preference—a subtle hint of color, a medium glow, or a deep tropical tan—and toss on a swimsuit, skivvies, or a perforated parka. Tanning technicians then take about 20–30 minutes to douse skinscapes in a safe golden mist, leaving skin perfectly sun smooched for an average of five to seven days. After treatment, clients should avoid showering or streaking through car washes for at least six hours.
New Leaf Salon and Spa’s skilled aestheticians whisk away fine lines, slacken tight tendons, and elicit satisfied ahhhs with various spa services. Skin specialists kick off the deluxe signature facial with a comprehensive skin analysis, carefully mapping parched or oil-slicked areas of epidermis and interrogating pores. Then, they’ll concoct a customized cocktail of purifying products to refresh and revitalize countenances. Alternatively, skilled therapists can knead away knots and soothe stress-saturated sinews during a one-hour full-body massage. Incorporating massage oils, warm towels, and techniques from a smattering of massage modalities, the massage can enhance circulation and boost ranges of motion so limbs can better reach the cookie jars in giants’ kitchens.
At Hair We Are, a licensed massage therapist kneads away aches, relieves pain, and fights stress with 60-minute deep-tissue massages. During each visit, guests recline as highly trained hands deliver deep-reaching massage strokes that loosen tension from muscles using targeted pressure and patented pickle-jar techniques. Each stroke works to increase circulation while sending forth waves of calming bliss through the body. Deep-tissue sessions can also be ideal for chronic-pain sufferers or those dealing with old sports injuries from days of competitive potato peeling.
