Julia Warosh explains an organic product to a client.
The word spa is likely to elicit the image of a languid day of self-pampering at a destination retreat. However, it’s not necessary to spend an entire day in a plush terrycloth robe and slippers while you shuffle off from one treatment room to the next for a professionally administered massage, facial or body treatment. You can achieve a similar pick-me-up from a sojourn of self-care at upscale day spas such as Salon Shangri-la Organic Salon & Spa, in Bonita Springs.
Salon Shangri-la is a trend-setting organic hair salon and nail spa that opened in 2008, several years ahead of the green movement that is now reenergizing Southwest Florida. “Since our opening, the success of our organic offerings is evident in the salon’s growth, which I attribute to our knowledgeable, talented and caring staff, as well as our continued efforts to find the leading eco-friendly products that perform well for our clients,” says owner Julie Chandler. She notes that the spa specializes in working with clients that are interested in transitioning to a healthier beauty routine.
Shangri-la offers a variety of healthy alternatives, such as European ammonia-free organic hair color and KeraGreen smoothing hair treatments, manicures and pedicures, as well as milk and honey waxing, organic airbrush tanning and mineral makeup.
“We genuinely care about the health and well-being of every client,” Chandler advises. “We individually educate them, so that they can achieve beautiful results while becoming aware of what is being used during their service, and why.”
