The multitalented team at Brodhead Spa performs treatments that are as relaxing as the fuss-free environment they're performed in. Guests cradle a warm mug of flavored coffee or specialty tea in the Paul Mitchell salon area as they watch a stylist mix custom hues at the color bar. As they relax back for a shampoo, awapuhi treatment, patrons can rest their eyes or fix them on a globe-like chandelier bursting with designs that resemble snowflakes or the permanent sparkle emanating from an anchorman's smile.
In the adjacent nail room, cream-colored pedicure chairs pop against a deep blue accent wall, setting a tranquil mood as feet are nourished with ingredients such as fragrant Moroccan rose oil or skin-softening cocoa butter. Plush white robes await guests retreating to private treatments rooms where male and female therapists are available to provide Swedish or hot-stone massages.
Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
Backed by the diverse industry experience of Dr. Goth, Ageless Appearance cares for its customers as earnestly as storks guarding baby warehouses. Customers get four sessions of laser hair removal with today’s deal. Opt to strip wanton hair from brows ($150), upper lips ($200), or foot fingers ($300) to treat small patches of hirsuteness. Or blast fur from larger skin estates with underarm ($450), chin ($450), face ($600), or bikini-area ($600) treatments. In order to offer his clients a professional and comfortable experience, Dr. Goth brandishes the high-quality ClearScan laser saber from Sciton, which produces an infrared laser beam with the power to selectively target follicular microfiends. The ClearScan can be safely used on any skin regardless of existing levels of melanin.
Shear Perfection of Jacksonville, Florida was established in 1988 to serve the needs of a clientele who require only the best in hair styling, skin and nail care. Owner Thuy (Twee) Young, with her vase years of experience and passion for hair, has assembled a staff of cutting-edge professionals.
Through custom, comprehensive care, the experienced staffers at Michael's Hairloft Spa & Tanning can revitalize seasonally affected locks, brains, and skin tones. Resident stylists perk up tired color with ammonia-free organic color products ($65+ for a retouch) or remix looks from scratch, granting clients a whole new 'do ($100+ for a cut and color). For a relaxing retreat, the loft's licensed massage therapists deliver personalized strokes over the course of 60 slow-ticked minutes. Clients can step into one of the salon's eight Wolfe tanning beds to get their skin feeling sun-kissed without having to meet Mr. Golden's parents, or simply bask in a red light therapy session designed to heal blemishes, increase circulation, and extend colorful changes for weeks at a time. The loft keeps its airy space open six days a week, with closing hours as late as 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
The team at La Chica Salon and Spa aims to make every client feel like a member of their family, which is why they maintain an easygoing atmosphere and care more about individual beauty than cookie-cutter trends. But that's not to say that their fingers aren't on the pulse of modern technologies—in addition to offering up-do-date cuts and color services, La Chica's stylists wield All-Nutrient keratin, a formaldehyde-free solution that straightens and smoothes strands. Nail techs beautify fingers with manicures, gel, and nail art and pamper feet with a spa pedicure that includes a scrub, a mask, hot towels, and a soothing massage. La Chica’s massage therapist, Tracey, treats bodies to her therapeutic touch in Swedish-relaxation, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massages that spelunk into muscles and roust out knots. Clients’ energy and bodily meridians align after 30-minute reiki healing sessions, or reflexology sessions manipulate pressure points on the feet to treat the full body.
