The adage "good things come in small packages" comes to mind at Saunte Wellness Center, a cozy but beautifully appointed retreat where clients indulge in luxurious spa treatments. In private rooms framed by chocolaty curtains and dark hardwood floors, practitioners conduct hot-stone massages, body scrubs, and microcurrent facials. A pebbled floor surrounds the gorgeous pedicure bowl, where clients recline in plush barrel chairs as nail techs massage their legs and feet. Two aestheticians are also on staff to administer permanent makeup applications to fill in the brows and lips or to help camouflage scars and stretch marks.
Catering to the whole family, Studio 109nw specializes in corrective skin care treatments including natural nails, corrective skin care, teeth whitening, and hair removal. A wide range of face and body treatments such as microdermabrasion, ultrasound skin tightening, ultrasonic exfoliation, and LED photon therapy help keep skin smooth and tight, reversing the appearance of aging and removing sun damage. Dental-grade teeth-whitening treatments use a gentle dental-grade gel to lighten teeth by two to three shades without causing tooth sensitivity, and all-botanical, wax-free hair removal treatments keep clients smooth.
The sizeable but close-knit staff of Artistik Edge Salon has served clients since 1999. With professional products by brands such as Redken and Wella, colorists render complete color treatments, highlights, lowlights, and gray coverage for men, women, and stressed-out toddlers. The hairstylists can also insert hair extensions, adding luxurious length to strands. Artistik Edge Salon also provides nail services, including long-lasting gel-polish applications, and aesthetic services such as facials and waxing.
Inside New Visions Salon, Heather dispenses haircare recommendations while chatting openly with clients as she performs trims, blowouts, and color treatments.
Keeping the lines of communication open is important to Heather, who feels it's the best way to keep clients happy. She further cultivates a dialogue by encouraging clients to bring in pieces of inspiration such as photos of well-known celebrities or well-sculpted topiaries.
Nail tech Michelle Long makes sure her clients unwind during her spa pedicures as their feet enjoy an exfoliating scrub, mask, and a massage that radiates relaxation through the entire body. Clients in her kid-friendly salon can upgrade their nail service with long-lasting shellac polish, elegant French polish, and a paraffin dip that softens skin and makes handshakes with the Gerald Ford figure at the wax museum less awkward. Long also moves her focus upward for facial waxing, leaving lip, chin, and browlines clean and smooth.
The licensed and trained techs at Creative Nails Care & Spa primp hands and feet with OPI products and professional techniques. While guests lounge in beige pedicure chairs or relax at tidy manicure stations, techs soften and refine limbs before applying acrylic, gel, or silk-wrap nails with immaculately sanitized equipment. For a subtler look, they can strengthen natural nails with chip-free Shellac polish or help them infiltrate a bakery's éclair case with French tips. The image experts also go beyond the hands and feet to uproot unwanted hair with gentle waxing techniques and purify pores with microdermabrasion and body wraps.
