The specialists at The Art of Beauty consider themselves artists. Their canvases, however, are their clients' faces, and products from ?minence Organic Skincare and Youngblood Cosmetics are their tools. They prime their canvases with custom facials, and artfully apply airbrush makeup for flawless appearances at weddings or special events. Eyelash application joins waxing and hand-brightening treatments on the service menu, as well. As the aestheticians work their magic, the soothing scents of aromatherapy and the soft glow of candles cultivate a relaxing environment, perfect for daydreaming about a proud lioness softly licking your face clean.
When it comes to relaxing their clients, the massage therapists at Top Shelf Esthetics leave no stone unturned. A soothing atmosphere sets the stage for classic Swedish and deep-tissue massages or more exotic bamboo massages and Thai reflexology. Although the team tailors massages to each client, guests can further personalize their sessions by adding aromatherapy in 1 of nearly 30 fragrances. Top Shelf Esthetics also offers aesthetic services including waxing and facials.
Within the quaint confines of Top Shelf Esthetics, wax specialist and aesthetician Kelleyrae pampers clients with her customize blend of beauty services. Clients looking to cleanse visages may enlist Kelleyrae to personalize a facial based on their skin type and condition. To remove rogue hairs, she treats skin to Nufree, a natural, nonwax product that facilitates smoother waxing experience. During all of her treatments, she showers guests with one-on-one service in a clean, quiet, and relax salon environment.
Equipped with an arsenal of beautification products from brand names such as L'anza, J Beverly Hills, and Dermalogica, the hair designers and spa specialists at Luminosity Salon and Spa rejuvenate clients with services for hair, faces, nails, and bodies. Stylists revitalize hair with permanent waves, highlights, hair extensions, and keratin treatments. Waxing and laser hair-removal treatments rid bodies of unwanted hair. Specialists also soothe bodies with massage styles such as prenatal, hot stone, and personalized therapeutic approaches, which calm muscles more effectively than having them breathe into a paper bag. Elsewhere in the spa, staff members pamper hands with paraffin waxes and shellac polishes, spruce up feet with peppermint foot soaks and foot masks, and administer facials that help repair sun damage and reduce wrinkles.
Since 1987, the knowledgeable consultants at Tanfastic have helped darken hides by acquainting guests with a range of indoor tanning systems. The salon’s four types of tanning beds yield darker pigments at varying speeds and at different depth levels, while sunless Mystic spray-tan booths coat skin in color that lasts for up to seven days. Tanfastic's stock of epidermal products from California Tan, Designer Skin, and Matahari help nourish skin and preserve sun-kissed looks longer than dipping sunburned elbows in liquid nitrogen.
