Paradise Salon's staff expertly renders the services necessary to bolster their clients' looks. Hair treatments such as Brazilian blowouts and deep conditioning keep strands smooth and strong enough to twirl around fingers or flip over shoulders. Nail services groom hands and feet—vixen reds light up fingers like glow sticks light up a rave in a cave. The technicians can also use a Japanese solution to keep lashes curled to the ideal level, enabling flirtatious winks for up to six weeks.
Frizziness, though considered "mucche fashionablyie" during Christopher Marlowe's time, is looked upon today as a despised facet marring your follicular gemstone. If your hair has ever suffered from the "vile heretical conceipts" of humidity, dryness, and being deliciously salted and krinkle-kut, strike back with the nutrient blast of Amy's Brazilian Blowout. After a deep cleaning, the salon's cutting and conditioning crew will slather your brain-box with the second-most magical Brazilian concoction after caipirinhas before blowing it dry with their powerful cybernetic lungs. They'll close by locking in the benefits with a heat-infusing hot-iron application. Frizz is eliminated from any type of hair, even chemically straightened locks, for roughly 10–12 weeks and replaced with a high-gloss shine; a soft, silky texture; and a glow of sexiness powerful enough to irradiate an unshielded goldfish.

For 10 years, Dawn Thompson worked beside top dermatologists and plastic surgeons as a surgical assistant. Armed with that experience and her education as an aesthetician, Dawn takes an all-encompassing approach to skincare at Island Skin and Laser, a recipient of a 2012 Seattle Award. Her firsthand experience helps her to personalize treatments to each client using medical-grade skincare products by lines such as SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Revaléskin, none of which contain perfumes or dyes. The aesthetician tackles common skincare issues with treatments ranging from traditional facials to advanced hydrafacials, erbium facials, and photofacials. As a laser pro, Dawn can also shine a light to banish unwanted hairs and bats that are bothering bodies.
The staff of tanning technicians at Cactus Club Tanning Salon draws upon training and certification from Smart Tan to gild skin as safely and effectively as possible. Epidermis enhancers evenly mist skin with a personalized solution to summon shimmering bronze like a frustrated alchemist. Two months of unlimited UV-tanning sessions let patrons bask in the sunny warmth of Klassik beds. Employees carefully monitor and schedule exposure times according to each client's skin type to minimize the risk of suffering a painful sunburn or becoming a comfortable habitat for iguanas. Patrons may choose to upgrade to standup units or medium-pressure beds for an additional fee.
At Salon Milano and Spa, plant-based Aveda products lend customized aromatherapy and natural nutrients to salon and spa services. The products' holistic focus matches the manner in which the staff conducts spa services: in addition to explaining the purpose of each step in the facial or massage, therapists also guide clients through stress-relieving visualization exercises to calm the mind. All treatments are customized, from the aromatherapy of a massage to the angle of the cut performed by senior or new-talent stylists in the salon. Tuscan Sanctuary is open late on weekdays to accommodate busy schedules and UV rays that, like Napoleon and his chef after saying they preferred English bread to baguettes, are exiled.
