Sometimes lying in a tanning bed surrounded by warmth can be a relaxing experience. Now add a massage and a facial to that. Nestled inside Tropical Paradise Tanning Salon & Spa, All About You! enhances tanning sessions with body treatments that include aromatherapy massages and skin-clearing facials. A one-stop beauty-maintenance shop, All About You! is also filled with beauty professionals who tend to nails and wax away unwanted body hair or add drama with eyebrow tints.
Calling upon three decades of professional experience, First Choice Haircutters’ team of seasoned snippers reshapes locks using current and creative styling trends. Collaborative consultations help stylists share their personal tips, such as "cocktailing" two different styling products to enhance their benefits or wielding Designline moisturizing products to repair hair damaged by the frigid assault of winter. Stylists welcome drop-in visits, allowing customers to tame hair right before work or right after a lunch date in a wind tunnel.
Elite Hair and Skin Care owner Sue Shaker spends her days chasing a natural high. Fifteen years ago, she noticed that feeling confident about her looks positively affected her overall well-being, and so she has been trying to help clients develop confidence through hair ever since. Her journey began at California School of Beauty, where she gravitated toward hair colour because another student mixed the formulas together and created a black hole. Now she corrects unflattering dye jobs with aplomb, having honed her specialty in highlights and lowlights for nearly a decade. To keep the salon current, she attends regular colour classes and arms her fellow stylists with products from Aveda and Moroccanoil.
The resident aesthetician nourishes skin with Dermalogica's products and methods, building custom facials based on analysis of each zone of the client's face and spheres of influence on their friends' faces. Her nimble fingers also manipulate fine threads to shape eyebrows, and trap body hair with traditional resin wax and sugar paste that will not tug on tender skin.
Wielding professional products from Dermalogica, Zoya, and Qtica, aestheticians rejuvenate bodies with a suite of services tailored to each client?s needs. While custom facials clean the skin to remove blackheads and birthday candles buried deep in the follicles, nail services pamper hands and feet with hydrating masks and paraffin dips. Waxing, sugaring, electrolysis, and threading services can rid bodies of unwanted fuzz, and massages help banish tension from achy backs and shoulders.
Holding certifications as a medical aesthetician, cosmetologist, and laser specialist, Bozana Skojo expertly leads her team in smoothing physiques with a range of treatments. To wield the LightSheer Diode laser system during laser hair-removal sessions, they undergo extensive training and rigorous sparring sessions against a punching bag filled with hair at The International Dermal Institute. The staff also focuses beams on unsightly veins or cellulite, leaving legs ready to flaunt at the beach or lederhosen-modelling competitions. On the spa end of services, Dermalogica potions help replenish lacklustre mugs during facial treatments, and Colorescience cosmetics enhance natural beauty amid makeup applications, lessons, and bridal appointments.
At La Petite Spa, talented, friendly aestheticians apply skill, experience, and premium products to the task of pampering patrons' hands and feet. In a shellac manicure and pedicure, digit decorators combine nail trimming, cuticle tidying, and "This Little Piggy"–playing with the application of CND-brand shellacs. The fast-drying talon tinter doesn't chip or smudge easily and can last up to two weeks, after which clients return to the spa so that staff members can gently remove the shellacs without damaging nails. In addition to their beautifying skills, La Petite Spa creates a convivial environment complete with genial staff members, complimentary cups of herbal tea, and a playful on-site dolphin.
