The staff at Electric Sun Tanning Salon facilitates hue transformations with a full range of UV-tanning beds and sunless spray services accented by tropical murals and décor. During Level 1 or 2 Mystic Tans, nozzles swivel and coat bodies evenly from head to toe in a dermis-darkening formula. Mystic sessions help avoid UV rays and the sun’s vengeful glares when you ask the moon out for coffee.
Calling on skin-safe supplies such as cosmeceutical-grade serums from Image like their Ormedic organic formulas, paramedical aesthetician Michele Gordy tends to clients' faces with services that include facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments. From her post within Victoria's Regal Nails, Michele begins every appointment with a consultation and detailed skin analysis to understand the unique issues and individual needs of each client's skin. She then tailors her services to treat conditions ranging from unsightly acne to stubborn paint left on former Blue Man Group members.
The skilled technicians at Magic Nails pamper hands and feet with mani-pedi treatments beneath hanging artwork. Aesthetes curtail nail growth with a trim and smooth rough edges with a precise filing that shapes nails into rounded tips or pointy instruments perfect for interrogating uncooperative balloon animals. Cuticle care keeps the protective layer within its boundaries, and a splash of paint gives mitts an eye-catching finish. During the one-hour treatment, clients sit back in lush leather pedicure thrones and page through magazines, leaving wet-polish mustaches on celebrities, and earth-toned walls serve as a soothing backdrop to a twirling rainbow of nail polishes.
The ocular aestheticians at Klutch Cosmetics enhance peepers of all colors with professional eyebrow and eyelash treatments. During the course of 10–15 minutes, a waxing wizard gently eradicates excess fringe from brows using an organic wax fused with cocoa for long-lasting hairlessness. Newly groomed brows earn deeper distinction after a sculpting with brow definer and makeup powder. Alternatively, the skilled beauticians luxuriously elongate lashes with extensions applied to the top lids. Four-strand bundles latch onto natural eyelashes with a professional bonding agent, enduring for two to three weeks before cascading from eyelids like mascara after a Super Soaker attack.
Named one of this year's top 100 salons in the country by Elle magazine, Kinetix Spa Salon submerges guests in a pool of pampering services. For 50 minutes, licensed massage therapist Michael Mikolajewski helps uproot body aches with the deep-tissue massage's firm kneading or the hot-stone massage's soothing game of spinal checkers. Surrounded by exposed-brick walls, spa technicians rub 98 percent naturally organic Comfort Zone products into skin surfaces to help bolster complexions during the Purify facial and quench parched pores during the Sacred nature facial. Afterward, relaxed guests can bask inside a steam shower, sip complimentary wine or champagne, or shout out ATM PINs in the private courtyard.
The stylists at City Looks Salon spangle head-threads with feathers, colored hair extensions, and shimmering tinsel. Plumage-inspired extensions lift fashion senses to stylish new heights and fulfill every hat's dream of someday becoming a nest ($20 for one; $35 for two; $45 for three). The adornments remain perched on tresses for up to six weeks, even withstanding shampoo storms and blustery blow dryers. Stylists harvest strands of tinsel in a variety of hues from orchards on supernovas before each sparkling strip is woven into follicles ($3/strand), whereas colored hair pieces change ’dos back to the lustrous blue they were before autumn ($10/piece). Not to be left out, City Looks Salon pampers the insides of heads with a grownup beverage.
