Though the name of her business, Got Lady Stache?, implies an attitude of irreverence, aesthetician Jennifer Horton takes her clients very seriously. In her nook at Sugar and Shears, she removes unwanted hair with sugaring, a process less painful than waxing and more sanitary than using leftover duct tape. As they recline on a black-leather treatment chair, clients can also opt for facial treatments to rejuvenate skin.
With locations spanning Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Norman, Sandy Beaches Tanning helps keep Sooner State bodies looking summer-ready all year round. Beds by brands such as Ovation, Solaris, and Acclaim HP comprise four tiers of conventional bulb tanning, or Mystic Tan airbrush booths rely upon the body's own magnetic properties to attract the customized formula in a way that helps it adhere evenly to every curve, crease, and prime meridian. To help clients keep up their sun-drenched demeanor between visits, Sandy Beaches also stocks each location's shelves with a large selection of tanning lotions, which customers can learn more about thanks to a biweekly lotion review posted on the business's facebook page.
Rumor has it that spray-tan tech Jennifer Freer can hit a pale leg from 100 paces. Beyond just accuracy, she's a stickler for customization. Her natural tanning solution is tailored to the client's unique skin tone and won't leave any odor or tacky orange tint. Jennifer offers spray-tan parties for groups of five or more and can provide a customized glow for special occasions such as proms or weddings.
At Enhance Your Natural Beauty, aestheticians and massage therapists use the latest technology to help clients achieve the look they want without plastic surgery. Owner Denice Elwell, a licensed aesthetician and medical micropigmentologist with 25 years of experience in the medical and dental fields, leads her team in performing noninvasive, FDA-approved anti-aging procedures. The beauty pros begin every skincare visit with a thorough analysis that measures skin's pH and hydration. One available treatment is the HydraFacial, a gentle procedure that reduces wrinkles while moisturizing the skin. The crew also combats cellulite with body wraps and radio-frequency Alma Accent cellulite treatments, enhances visages with permanent makeup including beauty marks and lip liners, and eases quotidian stresses with massages.
The spa's Asian decor, candlelight and incense, and complimentary hot tea create a warm, welcoming ambiance. To preserve the spa's coveted tranquility, staffers ask that clients silence their cell phones, speak softly, and carry a big rain stick.
South Beach Tans and Spa partitions its newly remodeled facility into two separate spaces: a secluded spa area offering skincare and waxing services and a livelier hallway that opens into private UV- and spray-tanning rooms. Clients can purchase single sessions or monthly packages for regular beds as well as VHO beds, which employ 42 lamps to produce a darker tan.
The company’s aestheticians curate complexions in warm, softly lit treatment rooms with noninvasive skin treatments designed to soften the signs of aging. The spa team also specializes in hair-removal using sugaring paste—a compound blended from sugar, lemon juice, and water—that exfoliates skin while yanking follicles out by the root, ensuring less hair breakage than tweezing or blasts from a freeze ray.
When it comes to losing weight, the team at The Body Wrap Spalon knows there's no substitute for diet and exercise, but they augment weight-loss efforts with a menu of advanced body wraps. The signature Slim wrap uses a blend of minerals and heat to draw out excess water and toxins, and the Men's Gut Buster shrinks belt sizes by targeting the midsection.
But body wraps are just one of the ways the team gets clients looking and feeling their best. They also deep-clean pores during facials and evaporate tension from the shoulders, neck, and back during custom massages.
