Directed by James Kahl, M.D. and anti-aging specialist Jean Clark, Sanctuary DermaSpa offers a range of medically supervised aesthetic treatments and spa services. As a registered nurse, Clark synthesizes her passions for both beauty and medicine while earning glowing endorsements from A-Line Magazine’s Elle Morris, who writes that she “delivers incredible medical-grade procedures.” Clark and a team of licensed aestheticians also nurture complexions with microdermabrasion, remove unwanted hair with waxing, and eliminate the need to always wear a Zorro mask with permanent-makeup application.
At Le Salon, experienced stylists and designers welcome clients to take a break and relax with hair, nail, and spa services. Scissors snip new styles for men and women, complete with full or partial highlights, weaves, and scalp consultations. Manicures and pedicures adorn nails with regular polish or Shellac, whereas paraffin treatments soften hands. Meanwhile, waxing services remove unwanted hair from brows or underarms, and facial treatments cleanse pores of dirt and grime.
Trendz Salon's stylists re-configure coiffures by snipping up men ($28+) or women’s ($42+) haircuts. Each scissor wielder can claim at least five years of experience, making them more knowledgeable about hair trends than even the most jaded wig mannequin. Other hair services include perms ($110+) and partial highlights ($95+).
A snip here, a touch of color there, and perhaps a relaxer to give the whole do a sleek shine. At Friends & Company Salon, friendly stylists accomplish these services and more in a comfortable yet chic studio environment. They do it all using quality products, too, from such brands as American Crew, Moroccanoil, and Wella. With a team of nail techs, Friends & Company can also put finishing touches on new looks with pampering spa pedicures.
From inside a Euro-boutique style clinical office, experienced aesthetician Anya Heck and her board-certified staff restore visages plagued by aging, acne, and dehydration. They lure healthy complexions to the skin's surface with custom facials and peels, pulling from DDF, Vi Derm, Neova, and SkinCeuticals product lines. More advanced treatments include dermaplaning, which utilizes a blade to remove outer layers of dead skin cells, as well as galvanic high-frequency facials that harness electrical currents to tone the skin and recharge mechanical eyelids. Heck is also a trained Novalash eyelash extensionist who can help bulk up lash lines with faux strands that are individually adhered to natural lashes.
More than 10 talented stylists clip, color, and condition follicles to the tune of a long list of services within the warm walls of Benzie Salon. Have ends professionally hemmed to create a breezier summertime coif (haircuts are $35+ for women, $20+ for men), or treat yourself to a beach-worthy style that will outlive summer with a permanent wave ($60+) or partial highlight ($55+). If you feel your curly hairs are on the road to delinquency, scare them straight with a relaxer treatment ($65+), or simply keep them in place with a formal updo ($45+).
Salon owner Michael Bannister has two decades of experience manipulating manes, with specialties that include precision cutting techniques, chemical texturizing, hair coloring, and working with curly locks. Let Michael James Salon beautify batting eyelashes by adding lush extensions to create thicker, fuller, flirtier lid filaments. Or choose the second option to get both eyebrows threaded. Threading uses a traditional Eastern technique to remove stray brow hairs without the use of irritating waxes or miniature lawnmowers. The grooming guru will deftly pluck and reshape eyebrows with fine twine, leaving them pristinely preened and ready to arch, furrow, or pirouette.
