Hello Gorgeous Salon and Spa's beauty mavens revitalize selves with the comprehensive Me Time Makeover’s luxuriant treatments. In the course of 2 to 2.5 hours, aestheticians swaddle faces with a pore-opening facial, and stylists tame overgrown head-lawns into pleasantly traversable coiffures with a cut and style. A manicure carefully prunes and paints nails, and a chair massage vies for the simultaneous affection of necks, backs, shoulders, and arms. Faces feel confident as they reenter polite society or mannerless prison yards following a color analysis, makeup lesson, and makeup application.
The aestheticians at Perfect Eyebrow Threading keep skin smooth and healthy from the forehead to the ankles. They skillfully manipulate loops of thread to remove facial hair and precisely shape eyebrows and use dollops of warm wax to remove hair from the legs and other areas of the body. Customized skincare treatments promote blemish-free, youthful-looking skin, and eyelash extensions boost natural feminine beauty. To further tempt visitors and Cookie Monsters, complimentary coffee, cold drinks, and cookies are offered.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the hydro-derma fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Amy, the licensed aesthetician behind The Perfect Lash, is a perfectionist by nature. She applies her attention to detail to her craft, meticulously enhancing clients' natural beauty with eyelash extensions tailored to the length and curl of their natural eyelashes and to the shape of their eyes and brows. Treatments range from a full set of Subtle Impact extensions, which cover 30% of natural eyelashes, to a Glam set of Maximum Impact extensions, which create a look similar to three or more coats of mascara. Amy maintains high standards of hygiene during every session.
The staff at Ambiance Life Spa focuses on the most supremely relaxing of all spa treatments: massage. The spa's service menu is succinct, offering just Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massages, but clients can customize their session several different ways with add-ons such as hot stones, paraffin, and footbaths.
