With blue skies and spring breezes chasing away the winter blahs, many are realizing they want to look and feel better, therefore searching out spas.
A few local spas offer services specific for a spring look.
Dual Exfoliation Facial
Sundance Salon Spa at 47 S. Elm St., Zionsville, offers a dual exfoliation facial with Aveda products to cast a clean, fresh look without the damaging chemicals. The two-part, clinical facial cleanses and then uses a plant peel on the face for facial results without uncomfortable, irritated skin sometimes caused by facial chemicals.
“This is a great choice for spring because of cold weather, everybody has a buildup of dry skin and dead cells,” said Michaela Baird, esthetician at the salon. “With the dual exfoliation facial, you’ll get a better tan on spring break and your face will be cleaned out better. You’ll get back that moisture you’ve been missing all winter.”
The dual exfoliation facial lasts an hour and costs $105.
Sundance Salon Spa also offers an upgrade from a normal manicure or pedicure by using shellac nail polish. This gel-like polish will provide two weeks’ worth of no chipping.
“This is also a great option for spring break, because if you’re going in the ocean normal polish will not stay on and you will have to continuously apply,” Baird said.
Shellac prices: Manicure – $45, pedicure – $70.
Haircuts and styles popular for spring
Twisted Sisters Beauty Salon, 546 N. Union St., Westfield, suggests an ombré hair style with lighter colors for those women searching for a spring look.
“The lighter ombré is pretty big right now, especially with lighter colors like blondes and light browns for spring,” Stylist Jessica Jones said. “It’s a new trend, everyone loves the color fading right now. It’s the new hot thing.”
Ombré prices range from $100-$160.
In pair with the ombré color scheme, Jones said that as fair as haircuts go, the longer look is currently in style for spring.
