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.
Licensed aesthetician Jennifer specializes in speed waxing, but that's not to say she sacrifices care for quickness. Having attended numerous classes in Brazilian waxing, she uses a hard wax and takes care to customize her treatments to each client's needs. Still, her sheer quickness is impressive. In 15 minutes or fewer, Jennifer is able to perform a Brazilian wax that removes hair safely and precisely. The Wax Studio also offers waxing options for men, including a Manzilian treatment.
Since the first Fantastic Sams salon opened its doors 35 years ago, stylists at each locally owned and operated franchise have stayed up to date on the latest industry trends. Before each haircut, a stylist shampoos the scalp for three minutes to relieve tension and cleanse the mane of any gels or Gak. In addition to coiffing or coloring tresses, stylists trim beards and mustaches and wax lips and eyebrows. An exclusive line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products nourish hair with pro-vitamins, soy protein, and silicone.
