Deep exhalations drift past the wood paneling, cascades of draped fabric, and hillocks of pillows in the treatment rooms at Beauty Essentials Day Spa. When not kneading the backs of clients, the staff takes a holistic approach to health and works to balance the body through energy work and biofeedback sessions. Aestheticians beautify patrons with facials, nail treatments, and waxing before video conferences with business partners and regular phone calls with psychics.
Licensed and certified spa technicians welcome guests into a world of pampering and relaxation at Image Resorts Beauty & Tanning Salon. They offer a wide variety of services that tend to hair, nails, skin, and well-being using products from brands such as Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Matrix. Stylists snip, wash, and straighten hair as well as add weaves and fresh color. Nail technicians dote upon fingers and toes with manicures, pedicures, and odes that detail the long history of hand turkeys. Other services include soothing massages and facial treatments, as well as tanning, waxing, and body wraps.
Licensed cosmetologist Amelia Lopez-Garcia has resculpted manes and infused locks with color for more than two decades. She heads a team of stylists who each have at least 15 years of experience. Inside La Bella Salon's chic studio, they create elegant updos, smooth strands with keratin treatments, and perform precise haircuts for men, women, and children.
Good skin isn?t just the result of good genetics; it takes maintenance and an occasional pick-me-up. That?s why Cindi Collins treats her clients to Aveda facials that use natural ingredients to boost skin?s glow while improving skin tone and repairing the effects of bobbing for apples in a vat of olive oil. Though these natural ingredients can balance out oily patches and add moisture to winter-weary skin, Collins maintains a retinue of tougher treatments that can renew complexions in need of more care. Her microdermabrasion treatments use real diamonds to buff away rough, line-marked outer layers of skin, and her chemical peels lighten signs of hyperpigmentation and pores. When not treating skin, Collins spends her days waxing away unwanted hair from both bodies and faces and adding eyelash extensions for a touch of glamour.
At Beauty By Trina, the stylists tend to hair and nails for new, lovely looks. Haircuts go to the next level with included conditioning treatments and blow-outs. Highlights and full color turn heads, and hands will be dying to be part of parade waves after nailcare services.
At Drybar, a pair of scissors or hair-coloring foil is nowhere to be found. That?s because the business?s founder, Alli Webb, opened the shop strictly for blowouts after her in-home business skyrocketed. Featured extensively in the media, each of the more than 40 white-hued, airy shops revolves around a center bar where customers sit for around 45 minutes as stylists blow-dry, straighten, and curl their hair. From a menu booklet, clients select a cocktail-themed hairstyle, such as The Mai Tai, which imparts beachy waves, and The Manhattan, which streamlines locks with a sleek finish that mimics the straight lines of downtown New York and can be outfitted with a tiny doorman who hails cabs for you. The staff at Drybar also crafts updos, travels on location for an additional fee, offers high-end products and tools available for purchase, and tallies bar tabs so that customers can pay for multiple blowouts at once.
