Tamed Hair Salon has its name for a reason. Sure, the stylists—like in any salon—cut, style, and “tame” hair, but they’re also armed with something extra: their very own signature smoothing treatment. Packed with natural proteins, this curl- and frizz-taming serum effectively seals the hair’s cuticles, locking in smoothness and shine and blocking frizz for up to five months. Of course, Tamed’s hairstylists aren’t just about banishing frizz. Within an expanse of sea-foam-green walls anchored by wooden floors, they also cut and style strands using K.Style products, and enhance color with highlights, lowlights, and grey blending with help from Lakmé color solutions.
Meanwhile, in private spa rooms, aestheticians wielding Rica wax made from vegetable oils and real beeswax remove unwanted hair from the faces and bodies of both men and women. Guys can prepare for a day at the beach or a night at an underground swim meet with anything from a chest or stomach wax to a “manzillian.” Aside from waxing, the skin specialists also exfoliate and cleanse pores during customized facials and full-body salt scrubs. The entire Tamed Hair Salon–crew—both stylists and aestheticians alike—also gathers guests for birthday and bachelorette parties, during which they pamper and beautify partiers with hairstyles and full makeup applications.
When the going gets tough, the tough get manicures. At least, that’s the view espoused by Pink Nails Day Spa, which strives to offer its clients rejuvenation through a variety of head-to-toe pampering services. As its name suggests, the spa specializes in nailcare, from classic manicures and pedicures to eye-catching airbrush designs. Table or chair massages work to disentangle muscular knots and banish tension, and facials address complexion concerns such as acne, sun damage, or irritated skin. Waxing treatments can put the final smoothing touch on bodies, clearing away unwanted hair and unsightly porcupine quills.
