At age 13, Jacqueline designed a science-fair project focused on age management, having developed a fascination for skincare by watching her mother and grandmother go through their daily beauty regimens. As Jacqueline grew up, she took that passion and became a licensed master aesthetician, opening Jacqueline Jase Face & Body Center in 2009. The center is named in part for her mother and grandmother—Jane and Rose—who Jacqueline names as the two most influential women in her life. Today, Jacqueline fights aging and nourishes skin with facials and herbal wraps, swaddling clients in natural and organic products from brands such as Bioelements. She also applies Nufree Hair Removal to legs and arms to remove unwanted hair, and fastens NovaLash extensions to eyelids to create longer, denser lashes. Realizing a connection between stress and skin deterioration, Jacqueline became a licensed massage therapist in 2010 and now relieves stress and chronic aches with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities.
Standup booths, lay-down beds, and VersaSpa tanning equipment line the private treatment rooms at TanFabulous, yielding many pathways to achieving a richer shade of skin. With four tiers of UV-tanning rays and three levels of spray-tanning mist to choose from, customers can pinpoint the exact hue of bronze they desire. The higher tiers of UV beds feature upgrades to enhance your tanning experience; among these, SunBreeze triple air-conditioning systems keep temperatures cool, aromatherapy infusions soothe the senses, and facial boosters send rays to hard-to-reach spots on the face and neck. The salon’s automated VersaSpa tanning booths spritz bodies with layers of bronzing solutions and drying jets of air. The DHA-based solutions couple with anti-aging moisturizers to ensure that skin retains the color of a deep-fried onion ring without its crunchy texture.
The chaos of everyday life checks itself at the door at Massage Worcester at Sherwin Christos - A Hair & Body Workshop. Skilled in a range of modalities, licensed massage therapist Amanda Bourbeau doesn?t just conjure fleeting moments of relaxation, but also helps the body heal itself from the inside out. She marries myofascial and deep-tissue therapies during regional bodywork massages that sooth and stretch sore areas and can apply localized pressure on reflex points of the hands and feet to activate natural healing processes and make tongues stick out at her will. Aside from using her gifted hands, Amanda may also call upon heated basalt stones or paraffin wraps to help assuage aches and pains.
Spray Tans by Jen differs from its salon counterparts in one notable way—it isn’t a salon at all. The company’s experienced tanning technician travels throughout Worcester County, taking her portable pop-up tent to clients’ homes or to their vacationing neighbors’ backyards. There, she uses a spray gun to mist an organic, paraben-free tanning formula evenly across skin. Each tan is customizable according to skin type, makeup routine, and desired level of darkness. The technician can also add the sweet scent of coconut or caramel to leave bodies smelling as good as they look.
Adesso Salon & Day Spa’s facility invokes the comforts of an elegant home. In the waiting room, an iconic Marilyn Monroe print presides over a cozy fireplace. In the hairstyling room, light pours in through sprawling bay windows as the team creates classic or trendy looks under sparkling chandeliers. Staffers pamper clients with facials, manicures, and pedicures. They also banish unwanted hair with waxing, threading, and laser hair-removal services, in which they extract the laser beams pointing out from your scalp—something robots simply call hair.
