The bronzing team at Sharper Image Tanning helps to cultivate sun-kissed skin with custom tans. Those whose flat-screen TVs fail to create quality at-home tans can imbue their epidermises with added glow during the sunless, UV-free session. After friendly staff members escort tan-seekers to private rooms, customers stand and splay arms while a bottled solution evenly coats the body, sweeping from side to side until it reaches the desired level of darkness.
At Aura Hair and Color Emporium, a flock of stylists swoops over coiffures with scissors and brand-name products in tow, ready to renovate outmoded hairstyles. After emerging from a flurry of snips, newly fashioned hairdos can reap the benefits of further embellishment, such as extensions, highlights, and Brazilian Keratin treatments, which render kinky manes manageable and prevent out-of-control locks from tussling with loose USB cords. The salon's multitalented team of beauticians also boosts outer allure with waxing services, makeup application, and special packages for brides-to-be.
The Bellmore location's rich interior swells with Victorian elegance, punctuated by golden lamps, finely upholstered couches, gilded mirrors, and garnet-hued wallpaper. The Long Beach location, on the other hand, strikes a different chord with its beach-like setting marked by sandy hues, bright foliage, and pictures of oceanic wildlife. While visitors abandon the stresses of the outside world, they can wile away the time sipping on complimentary cappuccino, tea, wine, or bottled water and conversing with well-mannered brooms dressed in petticoats.
The wellness professionals at Inside Out Beauty Bar know that healthy bodies are beautiful, so they nourish clients with botanical tonics that are either edible or topical. To enhance overall physical health, they offer juice-cleanse programs that "hydrate, alkalize, energize" bodies for a leaner figure. They also whip up à la carte smoothies and beverages with fruits and veggies freshly harvested from Peter Rabbit's knapsack. To enhance skin, they carry organic, all-natural, cruelty-free product lines that deliver customized results: some products moisturize and replenish vitamins; others boost proteins and correct skin damage. Staff members complement health-based treatments with cosmetic services including makeup applications and eyelash extensions.
With Glo Natural, you don't have to go to the beach to get a tan, but you also don't have to go to the studio. Glo Natural's technicians travel to clients' homes to bronze skin on-location with a vitamin-enriched, hydrating airbrush-tanning solution that boasts the ability to stave off signs of aging and diminish the appearance of cellulite. Customers can also luxuriate in a 45-minute facial wrap, which produces a lifting effect to firm and invigorate the skin and soften fine lines and wrinkles.
To stay abreast of all the changing fashions, Styling Haircutters’ expert staffers educate themselves on the latest hairstyles and coloring techniques for women, men, and children. They put this razor-sharp knowledge to use in other arenas besides the traditional cut and style, performing waxing, threading, and even teeth whitening services. They also offer perms, relaxers, hair feathers, and extensions made from real human hair.
A straightedged haircut isn't the only option at Elegant Barbershop, although the barbers are experts in that. They also use their skills to etch designs into hair as guests relax in plush, leather styling chairs. The rest of their service list, curated over 20 years in business, also includes hot-towel shaves and haircuts for women and children.
