The color pink dominates Gemz Salon, from the walls and furniture to a glamour girl runway that invites visitors to strut down the catwalk and show off their new looks. The spot's fuchsia interior appeals to both children and adults, as does its menu of prettifying services. Rockstar and glitter toe treatments glamorize feet after aestheticians sprinkle glitter onto a gel base, creating an eye-catching look and reflecting sunlight to scare off wayward cave lizards. Shellac manicures preserve the refined states of fingernails with nail-strengthening shades that remain chip-free for up to two weeks.
In addition to nail care, the staff performs an array of salon services. Gemz Salon's stylists clip hair into chic silhouettes and accessorize strands with feather extensions to make them more appealing to pet parakeets. Organic spray tans leave skin both gilded and firmer as a result of green-tea leaves and coffee-seed extracts, and waxing services rid follicles of unwanted hair.
While massage services are available, including Swedish and relaxation modalities, Lady Grace Beauty Spa offers many other services as well. A loop of thread and deft fingertips are all that's required for the threading process, a hair-removal technique that removes even minute hairs without irritating the skin. Parul, owner of Lady Grace Beauty Spa, creates clean, flattering brow-lines using the method. In addition to hair removal, Lady Grace also offers a full range of spa services that beautify the skin and soothe the muscles below it. Dermalogica facials combat skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, or Sharpie tattoos, and henna body art or eyelash-tinting treatments turn up the dial on natural beauty.
Like a cup of coffee with cream swirling through it, Glam A Perfect 10 intoxicates the senses with taupe walls interrupted by milk-white accents. Against this backdrop, yet set apart by soft lighting, aesthetician Tiffany Oliveira performs her many services. She waxes away unwanted hair, brightens complexions and softens fine lines with custom facials, and glides diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands across skinscapes to whisk away dead, dull cells, boost collagen production, and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Her chemical peels, on the other hand, use PCA Skin products and come with a take-home care kit to help aid the healing process. Elsewhere in the salon, hairstylists cut overgrown locks and nail technicians paint fingertips with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish to complete a makeover or change patrons’ appearances to no longer resemble their “Wanted” poster.
The staff at Versailles Salon & Spa pampers and primps guests with haircuts, skincare, mani-pedis, and massage services. On the salon side, the beauty squad fuels its artful approach to glamour with products from Scruples, Pureology, and Joico. Inside the spa's private treatment rooms, therapists perform specialty services, such as raindrop-therapy massage, which coats weary bodies in organic essential oils to ease muscle tension, bolster the immune system, and banish stress to the island of misfit emotions.
Despite its name, NT Nails does more than beautify hands and feet with manicures and pedicures. Amidst its nail services such as shellac manicures, acrylic tips, and paraffin hand treatments, another beautifying service abounds, though it may not be as visible as shiny red fingernails. NT Nails' detox foot spa introduces clients to the ionic foot detox, which soaks feet in an ion foot bath. The bath coaxes out stored-up toxins and helps to restore energy and balance while clearing up skin issues and calming the mind.
Singer Katy Perry is known for her candy-colored makeup and over-the-top outfits; it only makes sense that her hairstyles should be just as attention-grabbing. One of the hairstyles she favors—peekaboo highlights that show from beneath layers of hair—are a specialty for Katalyn, a stylist at Mane Attraction Salon. Katalyn's other specialties include chic haircuts, ombre color, and microbead extensions. Smoothing keratin treatments keep hair looking sleek between appointments.
