Allure Salon's body-bronzing specialists paint skin canvases with a sun-smooched hue. Tanners receive an effulgent epidermis in 15 minutes as the Fake Bake airbrush tanning sweeps across the skin, splattering it with a UV-free, no-streak tan. The skin-brightening serum infuses bone cages with naturally derived tanning agents DHA and erythrulose without clogging pores or irritating skin. Bronzers leave with a natural-looking tan that dries in 2–3 minutes and lasts up to one week, or about the time it takes to cartwheel the length of a marathon. The skin-savvy professionals recommend showering and exfoliating before the visit and moisturizing with a recommended product twice a day afterwards.

Utilizing Jan Marini’s C-Esta product line, Pura Bella Salon and Spa's Lindsey Byrd glamorizes visages with pampering facial treatments. The one-hour appointment begins with a deep cleansing and speedy exfoliation that clears skin of outdated layers and last season’s grime. The aesthetician then wrangles unwanted subcutaneous entities with a pore-extraction session and dote upon the upper body and scalp with a light massage. A hydrating vitamin C mask coats epidermal coverings, with skin-tightening serums reinvigorating tension like a courtroom drama surprise witness. The glow-bestowing session finishes with an eye treatment, refreshing and invigorating peepholes as patrons leave the salon’s soothing confines.
Your hair?s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it?learn why with Groupon?s close-up look at conditioner.
Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer?the cuticle?is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair?the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)
The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
In his 16 years of hairstyling experience, Mark Harmon has seen a lot of fads come and go. So rather than simply copy a trend, he works closely with his clients to come up with individual styles that will make them feel beautiful but still work with their particular lifestyle. But while his innovative methods and intense training make him adept at styling, coloring, or designing updos on the fly, he understands that many clients have trouble verbalizing their desires, and so he encourages clients to bring in pictures of hairstyles or celebrity mug shots in order to help direct their service.
