Sunsera Salons' name hides the fact that it's more than a hair salon—it's also a full-service spa. At one end, hairstylists expertly cut, condition, and highlight hair, or add length and volume with extensions. Meanwhile, their coworkers perform a slew of relaxing services: manicures and pedicures, facials, massages, laser hair removal, and hydrating body wraps.
Monita Chan has been training aspiring cosmetologists for more than two decades, instructing them in everything from creative haircut techniques to special-effects makeup application. At BM Chan—a cosmetology training academy that's also a full-service salon—she captains her team of beauty experts that includes stylists, massage therapists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists
When she and her team aren't leading classes in aromatherapy or medical aesthetics, they're giving their salon clients luxurious breaks from their busy lives. They even pull hair styling techniques from Vidal Sassoon and Pivot Point to create their looks for both special events as well as entirely unremarkable events.
Fashioned after a Mayan retreat in a space clad in warm oranges, calm yellows, and leafy plants, Yucatan Spa evokes the ambiance of a laid-back beach resort, lavishing its visitors with luxuries that include hair styling, shellac manicures, and tanning. Each tanning bed and stand-up stall warms skin with high-tech German-made equipment and imported tropical sunshine, measuring tanning times in minutes rather than difficult-to-comprehend units. The spa also puts an emphasis on body care with deep-cleansing facials and LED therapy to keep skin looking youthful and fresh, while massages ease away tension with hot stones and sweet-smelling aromatherapy treatments.
Using natural, organic ingredients for each and every one of her beautifying and restorative services, Mira Mamut puts the power of nature to work at Mira's Organic Spa. Tucked away in private, low-lit rooms, clients recline during coconut-mango-pineapple body wraps, which gently detoxify and cleanse skin, followed by full-body exfoliations and gentle showers that leave the entire body soft and renewed. Mamut's facials also make use of a number of botanicals and prep faces for mineral-makeup lessons and epic staring contests.
Fluid Day Spa might get its name from the in-house bubbly bathtubs, whose candlelit waters keep loose rose petals aloft. Or perhaps it refers to the inky red wine and champagne that deepens the relaxation of its spa treatments. Or, maybe it's a reference to the way muscles feel after a massage, soak, or scrub. Maybe it comes from the spa's curvy architectural lines, which undulate through the facility, but whatever the reason, it's clear "Fluid" is a fitting moniker. Treatments range from manicures to Botox, but every single service takes place in a soothingly low-lit treatment room.
