Growing up, Southern Sun-Sations's owner, Virginia, always enjoyed being outside and absorbing the warmth of the sun. That's why, once she was older, she decided that the tanning industry provided a natural path to follow her passion. Since 2003, Virginia's been helping people enjoy the sun's warmth and tan-imbuing rays at Southern Sun-Sations. The indoor sun-salon supplements its different levels of UV-tanning beds with Mystic Tan booths, which coat bodies with sun-kissed color without UV rays and awkward first dates with the sun.
With a Groupon in hand, you can book an appointment with one of the master hair shamans at Gasoline Alley to snip and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Gasoline Alley's stylists can sense your innermost hair-yearnings—no matter how straight, curly, short, or long—and will lovingly direct their careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting the creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp to transform that rebellious young mop top into a polished, well-behaved new 'do. Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of careless coiffeurs.
Haircuts and highlights are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to pampering clients at PeterAshley Hair Salon & Day Spa. Trained massage therapists work out tense muscles, and aestheticians extract dirt and loose change from pores during facials. A nail technician is also on hand to dispense mani-pedis.
Creativity weds technique inside of Modern Designs Salon, where trained stylists craft the latest in trendy looks with an artistic flair. Fashionable overhauls come through in the form of haircuts and styles, brilliant colors from the Wella product line, and chemical treatments such as Amino Fusion smoothing. The staff also offers waxing treatments, manicures, and pedicures.
Owned by signature stylist Kelli Richardson, Salon Divine delivers friendly service in a warm and lively atmosphere. Customers lamenting the damage done by sandal and iron-gauntlet season can select the mani-pedi combo to keep digits looking dapper. Those more concerned with manicuring harder to reach areas can take full advantage of a Brazilian wax to prepare for glacial-beach season. Or, clients can ease into a padded salon chair for a shampoo, haircut, and blowout. The hair treatment sports quality products by L'Oreal, DevaCurl, and Moroccan Oil to ensure silken threads look superb whatever their natural texture.
The professionals at Heads Up and Body Works beautify and pamper clients with salon and spa services ranging from haircuts to rose mud body wraps. And with spa packages such as All Dolled Up or the Dog House Special, they spend anywhere from two to four hours readying clients for special events or an evening of smiling gleefully at their reflection in the mirror.
