The certified aestheticians at Face and Body by Taylor revitalize bodies with an array of relaxing spa services and complimentary mimosas, wine, or martinis. Like windshield wipers running during a car wash, staff cleanses skin twice during the maintenance facial before exfoliating away dead stowaway cells with soothing steam. A choice of aromatherapy oil invigorates nasal passages, and a hydrating paraffin mask restores moisture to thirsty skin. Nail techs shape and sculpt nails during the ultimate manicure before softening hands with moisturizing lotion and a paraffin hand mask that also protects renowned hand models from the paparazzi. A coat of shiny polish sends nails back into the light of day in color-coordinated style.
Alternatively, Face and Body's skin specialists can polish bodies with an exfoliating salt scrub as aromatherapy oil calms the inner senses. Guests should refrain from shaving or sleeping on sandpaper sheets before this treatment to preempt skin irritation. A tranquil 15-minute session in the infrared sauna helps facilitate the body's detoxification process and rejuvenate skin. Clients can sip their complimentary beverages in the intimate, softly lit lounge area while resting in leather chairs and pondering whether peppermint essential oil has the same effect on the elves of the North Pole.
Face and Body by Taylor
What do teenage girls and pro football players have in common? They both want to look good. For nearly two decades, Face and Body by Taylor has been pampering clients who range from prom-prepping teens to professional athletes, including former Oakland Raider Charles Woodson. Backed by a service menu that caters to both genders, the spa's certified technicians carefully wax eyebrows, soften skin with homemade aromatherapy body scrubs, and primp fingers and toes with careful buffing and an optional layer of Shellac, Gelish, or OPI lacquer. The spa eschews the feminine pink paint and framed watercolors of X chromosomes typical of a standard salon and instead features sophisticated wood-laden decor that ensures a welcoming environment for men and women alike.
