Tan Makers transforms sun-shy epidermises into a beach-ready bronze with a suite of tanning options. Experienced technicians apply the UV-free Norvell custom airbrush tan, which lends natural, even color to lusterless skin for about seven days. Four levels of UV tanning offer a range of bronzing intensities, beginning at the level-one Ultra Sun bed, which bestows skin with subtle color. The level-four Velocity bed amps up solar wattage with four high-pressure bulbs that darken skin to a radiant brown, imparting unstoppable hide-and-seek success in bronze-statue museums. Complete epidermal renovations in the Hydration Station, a special skincare capsule that blankets the body in radiant heat and steam to moisturize and detox its superficial layers. Time in the capsule can soften skin, deepen tans, and infuse moisture deep into cellular layers, leaving bodies as radiant as a phosphorescent shrimp on its wedding day.
Tresses are kept trimmed, tinted, and textured with an arsenal of services at Bella Sorella Salon. Give locks weary from endless growth spurts a much-deserved break with a customized haircut ($20–$35), and tack on a blow-dry and style to ease hydrophobic shoulders ($45). All-over single process color saturates headmops with a new hue ($70), while a few face-framing highlights can bring out the color of braces’s rubber bands ($5 per foil). Conspicuous curls blend in at dry-spaghetti dance parties after a relaxer, and straight strands befriend bouncier brethren after a perm (each $75+).
The attentive aestheticians at Gatsby's Hair Studio rejuvenate visages with indulgent facials and microdermabrasion treatments in a serene spa setting. During the one-hour signature facial, a skincare guru employs A-Cute Derm products to purge pores of impurities, shedding dead cells and refinishing façades with a glow as healthy and radiant as a light bulb powered by spinach. The accompanying microdermabrasion gently sloughs barren skinscapes to unveil a smoother façade and minimize the appearance of fine lines and sun damage.
At The Atascocita Barbershop, barbers help men look their best with classic, timeless haircuts and fresher, more modern looks. The staff chisels away at whiskers with old-school shaves and hot-towel wraps, leaving faces clean and smooth to the touch. They skillfully shape hairstyles into elegant flat tops, fades, and tapers with the same adeptness they use to sculpt mohawks. Complimentary shoulder and neck massages can ease the tension of seeing your fallen hair spell out “Why?” along the barbershop floor.
The licensed medical professionals and technicians at Venus Tan and Spa iron out wrinkles and unearth fresher, younger skin with sophisticated facial treatments. Nurse-administered Botox injections flatten out facial furrows by freezing muscles and tightening up the hard-to-reach screws behind the ears. Smoothed-out results appear within three to seven days after the 10- to 15-minute procedure and can last up to four months. Beauty mavens can follow up the treatment with a half-hour diamond microdermabrasion to draw back the face’s dull curtains of dead skin, or tighten up sagging spots and recharge cheek-stored smile batteries with the gentle FDA-approved electric pulses of a 45-minute microcurrent facial.
At Benita Lash Studio, Novalash-trained technicians use medical-grade products to affix synthetic lashes to their clients' eyes. These lashes are waterproof, sweat-proof, require minimal maintenance, and don’t need to be removed before bed or pie-eating contests. In addition to lash extensions, the studio also offers facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, along with spray tanning and waxing for full-body beautification.
