The reincarnation of a historic house, Powder Room presents its visitors with vintage décor and a hardwood floor that stretches into private massage and skincare rooms. Freshly brewed coffee and tea flavor the waiting area's air, and light pours in from several windows with VIP access to the sun, illuminating two nail stations, a makeup station, and an elevated pedicure chair. G.M. Collin, Rhonda Allison, and ViVO Spa products back many of the spa's services, including mani-pedis, collagen treatments, and enzyme peels.
Bright pink walls and zebra-printed accents draw customers into BDazzled with Judy, LLC, a destination for those in search of snazzy beauty treatments. The staff specializes in skincare, eyelash extensions, waxing, therapeutic massages, mani-pedis, and kids’ pedicures, which take place atop a child’s spa chair complete with a set of decorative butterfly wings on the back. The staff also pieces together spa packages for clients’ weddings or birthday parties.
The skilled hands at TheraTouch induce relaxation with a variety of massages, facials, and body treatments. Male and female therapists specialize in myriad massages, which range from Swedish and deep tissue to hot stone, relaxation, and aromatherapy. Scrubs and body wraps help reanimate the body, and paraffin treatments and footbaths keep digits soft and nimble. Facials combine the properties of ingredients such as oatmeal and honey, paraffin, and botanical mud to invigorate the face and leave it healthy and glowing.
It's quiet in Aqua the Day Spa. No cell phones or pagers are allowed to remain active in either of the two locations, so all you hear is your pulse slowing to a steady, soothing beat and the tiny noises made as expert hands open bottles of designer beauty products. Open since 1998, owners Susan and Ralph Barnette struck the right, Enya-like chord in 2003, when they first earned the title of Best Day Spa in the Jackson Free Press's annual "Best Of" roundup. The team of aestheticians and massage therapists have swept that title every year since, deflating the competition in proportion to lifting spirits. Paraben-free Skin Authority and scented Tokyomilk tonics nourish skin with vitamin-rich Moroccan clay and soothing mango, or exfoliate dead cells with bamboo salves scented with ylang-ylang. The staff's nimble hands blend these into custom treatments, including those to combat aging and the strange shadows creeping over men's skin, and work aromatherapeutic elixirs into muscles with nine different massage modalities. OPI and Shellac nail polish transform hands and feet into fashion accessories, a project helped along by smoothing wax.
