It’s not every stylist that can select hues that complement clients’ skin tone—but as a color specialist, stylist Stacey Bennett demonstrates this ability daily. The Paul Mitchell School graduate operates within the walls of By Shear Design, where she uses Paul Mitchell products to perform precision cuts and add vibrant dimension with highlights.
At Aspire Medical and Day Spa, medical aesthetics and skincare work in tandem to erase signs of aging. The staff, overseen by Dr. Nicole Reid, smoothes wrinkles with Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Belotero, and streamlines morning routines with permanent makeup. The aestheticians also rejuvenate your look with facials that range from a quick lunchtime pick-me-up to the Ultimate Facial, which combines cleansing, exfoliation, and microdermabrasion with an upper-body massage. Their arsenal of skincare products and custom facials helps clients stay beautiful at home with high-quality brands such as Dermalogica.
The tanning professionals at Perfect Tan help combat waning complexions with high-tech beds and safe, effective sunless-tanning techniques. For those seeking a sun-free shade, UV-free Mystic Spray tanning booths bronze bodies for up to five days with automated misting nozzles that apply an even coat of FDA-approved DHA and aloe vera. During the airbrush tan, a certified tan tech covers the entire body with micromists that can render skin three shades darker, obscuring dermal imperfections, such as blemishes, stretch marks, and full-torso tattoos of Christmas sweaters.
Pure Salon and Spa's skilled crew of body beautifiers indulge guests with luxurious hair treatments, nail overhauls, facials, and more. Sip on complimentary beverages while stylists snip and shape hair into a face-framing haircut ($24–$34 for women, $15–$24 for men), brighten languid locks with full highlights ($85+), or jolt strands with all-over color ($70+). Foot finessers and hand caressers drape blank nail canvases with a color during a basic manicure ($22) or pedicure ($38), while the pure signature facial ($60) brightens a tired dermis more easily than a daily cheek pinch from a beloved coworker. Pure Salon's private room offers a soothing space to smooth epidermal expanses with a brow, lip, and leg wax, while fair skin can be highlighted to a brilliant bronze with an airbrush tan.
