The Color Bar's owner, Natalie, not only brings her own personality to bear on every head of hair she works with, she also finds a way to make that hair speak about the person beneath it. In appointments that focus on fun as much as style, she uses advanced coloring and hair-management techniques to create edgy highlights and loud layers as well as more natural-looking tints. But style aside, Natalie puts a great deal of importance on hair health. Her specially formulated hair winterizer, for instance, keeps scalps hydrated throughout the season to prevent clients from dunking their heads in Gatorade every morning.
The beauty experts at Plethora of Design glamorize nails with comprehensive mani-pedis. The 75-minute treatment begins with a cuticle treatment, which softens nail beds with soothing elixirs and heartwarming pictures of puppies dressed as flowers. Next, technicians buff and shape careworn talons before swaddling hands with steaming towels to open pores. After feet lounge in a mini hot tub, technicians load them with moisturizers and loosen muscles with a gentle massage. The renovations culminate with a glimmering coat of polish on fingers and toes. For an additional cost, guests may upgrade manicures to include a paraffin-wax hand dip ($7) and Shellac polish ($8).
The staff at Alaska Body Aesthetics strive not only to make clients look better, but also to make them feel better, too. Their menu of noninvasive aesthetic treatments focuses on enhancing mental as well as physical well-being. High-tech services offer immediate results: technicians can refresh aging or damaged skin with Fraxel laser treatments, or remove hair and skin lesions with intense pulsed light of Palomar's StarLux system.
The doctor also combats signs of aging with Botox and dermal fillers, and she helps patients enhance their body image with skin-contouring treatments. She and her team clear complexions with products such as SkinCeuticals and Obagi Medical.
