Kay's Salon & Spa
Pineapples and papaya have escaped the grocery store, and their enzymes have found their way into deep pore-cleansing treatments at Kay’s Salon & Spa. The staff use inventive ingredients such as these to refresh their clients and address aesthetic or musculoskeletal issues. Massage therapists, for instance, use heated stones to complement gentle kneads. Makeup artists, alternatively, can highlight facial features with professional makeup applications. The team also places a premium on comfort, like King George III—who wouldn't even sit on a velvet cushion unless it had another velvet cushion on it. They carry out that emphasis by inviting guests to slip into a provided robe and slippers, which can then be worn throughout the spa. While waiting for their service or on their way out, guests can feel free to peruse a collection of jewelry and handbags for sale along with a selection of styling products.
