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.
The minimalistic design at Salon JB—think cream-hued ceiling, walls, and flooring surrounding a single line of modern black salon chairs—allows the stylists’ hair creations to really stand out. They cut hair into sleek bobs or face-framing layers. Their stash of hair dye adds golden highlights to manes or camouflages locks before camping trips. They also straighten frizzy hair and add instant length with extensions.
The multitalented stylists at Ridges Barber & Beauty cover all the glamour bases with a lengthy menu of salon services. After a relaxing shampoo and deep conditioning, clients can opt for a clean cut; all-over highlights; or treatments that curl, lengthen, or straighten strands. The staff also applies makeup and whisks away unwanted fuzz with facial waxing.
Hair Gallery's team of stylists aim to give each customer personalized attention. A consultation at the start of each appointment ensures each stylist understands their client's hair needs and favorite pet name used, and comfortably situates each guest with a complimentary glass of coffee, wine, or beer. Chandeliers illuminate all the stylish transformations, which can transcend tress modification to include eyebrow or lip waxes, Shellac manicures, or full sets of acrylic nails.
Toni J, also known as Katy, grew up around beauty professionals. When she was a little girl, she watched her grandmother press hair in the kitchen and tagged along with her mom whenever she went to her cosmetology classes. Today, Katy skillfully sculpts multicultural manes with formal styling, precision cuts, color, and extension techniques and draws from an arsenal of products by DevaCurl, Goldwell, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology. When she isn't working on everyday dos, Katy designs coiffures for runway models, and this work has earned recognition from EncoreHD Hair Magazine.
