The skilled staff at John Nelson Salon & Spa douses patrons with rejuvenating massages, customized facials, and expert hair services in a soothing environment fashioned with sleek gray walls and accented by bright-green chairs and floral art prints. After determining a plan of action based on skin woes, a keen-eyed aesthetician begins the 60-minute Essential facial with a thorough cleansing to bathe away dirt and an exfoliation to slough off dead skin cells and hard-to-remove Lone Ranger masks. A steam application then opens pores while scowls uncoil under the sensitive strokes of a facial massage. A mask and pore decongestion round out the treatment, leaving skin as smooth as Barry White’s bowling ball.
During the 60-minute Swedish massage, a pair of capable hands extracts tension out of soul sacks with slow, soothing strokes and sung renditions of organic chemistry exams. The 60-minute deep-tissue massage sees dexterous hands delving deeper into subterranean tissue, delivering firm, cross-grain strokes into the muscle to squeeze out embedded stress pockets and built-up toxins. Or, customers can soothe frazzled heads instead with a Keratin Smoothing System Treatment, which tames unruly tresses for a sleek look.
John Nelson Salon and Spa
Although he had already been a successful stylist for years when it took place, the thing that solidified John Nelson as a top-notch professional was a training stint he spent in Rome, Italy, where he absorbed European techniques that he brought back to his own salon in the United States. Now guests of John Nelson Salon and Spa enjoy the benefit of these and other techniques—such as Global Keratin treatments and color services—within a workspace where lime-green accents punctuate slate-gray walls and floors. Chocolaty hues coat the spa area, where licensed technicians unpack pores with Alleia skincare products and drive away cellulite with herbal detoxifiers and repurposed breakup speeches.
