Eponymous spa owner Lucia believes that a person’s beauty is a reflection of his or her own health and inner happiness, and that happiness should shine as brightly as possible. To help clients up their wattage, Lucia supports a healthy glow with a repertoire of technologically enhanced beauty treatments that echo Eastern and Western philosophies—traditional natural remedies coexisting with modern beauty solutions.
Lucia's favorite service is the microphototherapy treatment, during which gentle pulses of light dissipate traces of age and acne while purging pores with a blast of light bright enough to help follicles catch up on their reading. Dedicated to helping her clients find the best skin solution for them, Lucia also helps reap clearer skin with a natural herbal peel, which she massages into the skin with detoxifying kneading actions.
When April Antz first opened Bevel Salon, she wanted to foster a diverse atmosphere while focusing on sustainable practices. In pursuit of this goal, she hired a team of extensively trained, culturally sensitive stylists and compiled a collection of organic and plant-based styling products. Made by Davines, these shampoos, conditioners, and balancing treatments boast ingredient labels brimming with natural botanicals and free of synthetic chemicals, allergens, and blond jokes. The salon also wields the Davines Mask Color System, which employs a milk-protein base to soothe scalps and bolster hair-shaft health when clients return home. Because Bevel Salon's stylists flaunt unique hair types of their own, they're especially suited to sculpt and nourish locks of many shapes, textures, and hues, especially in services such as weaves and relaxers.
For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.
It looks so simple: a length of twisted cotton glides across the face, grazing the upper lip, eyebrows, and hairline. This is threading, an ancient hair-removal art with roots in India and the Middle East. Masters of this art, M&M Thread Salon’s staff members quickly ensnare bristles in their threads, creating lines as sharp and clean as the battle ax that chops soap into bar form. The treatment is particularly beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it uproots hair without chemicals or harmful products. The salon also performs waxing and facials.
Beyond Malimor Skin Care’s yellow awning and shrub-lined façade, Mali awaits, ready to beautify clients. Using warm wax, Mali sharpens eyebrows, de fuzzes faces, and clears full legs, removing the hair by its root so it to will grow back slower and finer. Alongside Mali, her staff of skilled make-up artists applies special event make-up and exhume buried tension with full body therapeutic massages that, like the any well-played game of tic-tac-toe, can last for 30 or 60 minutes.
The Nail Shop's signature finger- and toe-helmet-buffing procedure covers all the keratin bases. Cuticles become cute, nail edges assume supple shapes, nails don bright glossy new coats, and hands and feet are gently kneaded, like hard-boiled eggs under the Easter Bunny's paw. The deluxe version of the pedicure incorporates an exfoliating aloe-vera pumice scrub and a tingly peppermint masque and elegantly extends the hoof-rub to ten mollycoddling minutes, scented with the lotion of your choice. The deluxe manicure also ups the phalange-ante, sloughing off dead skin with a crystalline citrus rub and nourishing it from roof to basement with vitamin E cream. Both deluxe procedures are concluded with a warm towel wrap.
