The trained stylists at Sass Hair Salon access a cache of lock-vivifying services to create custom looks. Those oppressed by unruly curly hair can subvert tress tyranny with a keratin straightening treatment. A coiffure captain will tackle frizzyness to the floor and smooth the hair into a less spring-like texture, allowing previously torque-addled strands of hair to release their tension. After the formaldehyde-free treatment, clients get complimentary shampoo and conditioner to take home and use to grease slip 'n' slides.
The thought of leaving the house and facing the world sometimes stopped Rachel Kaye in her tracks. She had suffered from cystic acne from childhood into her adult life, and her self-esteem hovered at a low level. Surrounding herself with flawless-skinned individuals while working as a cosmetologist did not help either. And then Rachel made a life-changing decision: she enrolled in school for aesthetics, and learned to treat skin conditions such as her own. She now helps clients overcome chronic acne, oily skin, sun damage, and other stubborn issues with custom facials and chemical peels.
The lilting melodies of jazz classics flutter in the air at NuVibe Aroma Day Spa, where guests sip complimentary beverages as aestheticians and massage therapists pamper them into a state of inner and outer bliss. Dotted by glowing candles, the spa offers private treatment rooms for massages and waxing treatments, as well as rooms for the confluent treatments of couples or friends. Cosmeticians soothe and prettify hands, feet, and nails during mani-pedis, and the spa also boasts a resident tattoo and piercing artist.
When the aestheticians at Sugar Moon Salon are handed lemons, instead of making lemonade, they make sugar paste. The mixture—composed of sugar, lemon, and water—removes unwanted hair on bodies and is safe enough to use on the most sensitive skin. They use the paste to swiftly remove hair on men's and women's bikini areas and fuzzy faces. Additionally, they can vagazzle a hair-free bikini area with Swarovski crystals arranged in designs such as hearts, stars, and butterflies.
At ForeverJac Eyelash Boutique & Medi-Spa, the team encourages clients to express themselves—through their eyelashes. Their eyelash extensions, available in real mink and silk mink, can create a polished and natural look that enhances beauty. Lash perms and tints, meanwhile, add drama without adding length.
To complement their lash enhancement treatments, the aestheticians also beautify physiques with medispa treatments. Facials and microdermabrasion treatments brighten complexions, whereas waxing and laser hair-removal sessions remove unwanted stubble without having to improvise at home with flytraps.
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.
