Original Flair Salon’s owners, sisters Katherine and Neka Carter, and their staff slough off skin impurities and ease client stress using pharmaceutical-grade products during one-hour aromatherapy back facials. Following a brief consultation to determine skin conditions and allergies, clients recline on a bed in a private room while aestheticians blend a custom cocktail of chocolate, rosemary, and mint aromatherapy oils to awaken noses and throw off any nearby bloodhounds on the hunt. A team member gently scours patients’ backs with a rotary brush and deep-cleansing scrub that lifts impurities from problem areas through exfoliation. After 10 minutes simmering under steamed towels, backs undergo a 30-minute light relaxation massage before epidermises are painted in mud blended with the aromatic ointment and lifts out remaining skin contaminants. After 20 minutes, steamed towels peel away the mask and reveal a lovely butterfly tattoo.
The staff infuses each of the treatment’s products with sweetly scented aromatherapy, aiming to increase circulation and exploit the menthol leaf’s relaxation-inducing properties. The back facial uses Pharmagel products, which evict impurities like a lunch lady moonlighting as a landlord, and infuse skin with natural antioxidants and essential vitamins. During treatment, recumbent patients gaze at the room’s warm green walls and Egyptian artwork, bathed in smooth spa music and chocolate scents wafting from scattered candle arrangements.
