Tucked inside a cozy studio within InStyle Salon & Spa Suites, Face Value Skin Spa & Wax Studio whisks male and female clients into a realm of relaxation. Here, a team of talented aestheticians help clients achieve states of beautified Zen through custom-blend Bioelements facials, Brazilian waxing for men and women, as well as speed waxing and eyebrow design. They also brandish Bioelements products while divvying out a dozen different facials that range from a deep-cleansing signature treatment to a potent acne-clearing facial laden with antioxidants. The crew also attacks hirsute skin, removing hair from backs, chests, and faces with Cirepil wax, or wielding light-based hair-removal techniques to deliver a more permanent punch and thwart hair regrowth across the body.
Executive Tans’ friendly, Smart Tan–certified staff guides customers through six different levels of tanning beds seven days a week. From basic 15-minute systems to advanced high-pressure tanners, each bed is located in a room that's also equipped with satellite radio. Instead of exposing their skin to UV rays or waiting for a bear hug from King Midas, customers can turn to a trained technician for a sunless spray tan. Using a fast-acting formula that simultaneously firms up skin thanks to an antioxidant-packed solution, bronzing levels can be customized for each individual's skin tone.
At Creative Nails Too, courteous nail technicians add a little dazzle to hands and feet. Once all 20 fingers and toes have been trimmed and filed, technicians can emboss them in glossy no-chip polishes or carefully paint on intricate designs such as snowflakes or tiny portraits of your favorite Baldwin brother. Once toes and fingers have been freshened up, eyebrow and lip waxes also can be booked to help ensure clients leave with a fresh face to match.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 10 minutes are set aside for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
Alicja and Haley want you to have fun in their salon––they set the tone on their website by introducing themselves with personal tidbits such as "admitted shopaholic" and "Frank Sinatra fan." They aim to be approachable to all clients, welcoming adults, teens, and kids alike with a selection of hair services that includes cut and color. Beauty Island Salon & Spa also has private treatment rooms, where aestheticians perform waxing and facials with spa-like touches such as warmed hand mitts. Back in the salon, the mani-pedis also incorporate luxurious extras: nail technicians exfoliate appendages to the elbow and knee, and mix custom foot baths with a choice of essential oil.
When it comes to beauty, Joanna of Joanna's Hair & Lash Extensions not only knows the latest trends, she knows how to achieve them. The stylist and lash technician stays on top of the latest styles, smoothing out coarse and frizz-prone hair with the Brazilian blowout system and adding length to short cuts with natural-looking hair extensions. She also flexes her hair-coloring muscles during ombre color and highlighting sessions, imparting locks with everything from subtle, sun-kissed hues to fun, candy-colored streaks. Showing off her expertise in all things hair, Joanna adheres lash extensions to existing lashes, emphasizing the eyes without applying mascara to them or drawing a third eye between them.
