The beauty buffs at Envy Tan equip their newly opened salon with a collection of beds, spray-tan services, and red-light therapy that aims to bronze and tone the skin. Recline in a 12-minute lie-down bed or rehearse semaphore monologues in a 9-minute stand-up unit, all while soaking in the vitamin D emitted by the traditional Level 2 UV tanning. The pink and white upright Ergoline Beauty Angel chamber bathes bodies in therapeutic non-UV red light, which has been said to stimulate collagen production to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. The rejuvenating beams may refine skin texture, as the vibrating platform underfoot stimulates muscles and politely asks cellulite to leave the room. A trio of VersaSpa spray tan sessions evenly mists hides with a sunless bronzing formula in the comfort of a high-tech booth or low-tech bounce castle.
Helmed by Kristi Backer, AfterGlow Studio aims to fill customers with the comfortable satisfaction of an improved appearance from well-done spray tanning or body waxing. Technicians use warm wax to remove unwanted hair all over the body by pulling it from the root. They also bronze skin with spray-tanning services, for which they can travel to customers' homes.
SheLax Nail Studio may be new, but Maria Desembly has been in the nail business for more than 11 years. A background in health care directs Maria's gentle, hygienic touch as she tidies up the fingers and toes of both men and women. After filing, shaping, and buffing, she can outfit all 20 tappers with basic polish or safeguard their shine with acrylics or Shellac, which resists chips, nicks, and the urge to plunge into freshly frosted birthday cakes for far longer.
Salon Concepts connects talented stylists with private suites where they can tend to tresses and soothe skin in a peaceful environment. Services and pricing vary by location, with an array of beautifying treatments abounding across the network like bunnies on a verdant spring catwalk. Seventeen participating aestheticians are armed with a pack of prettification options such as cut-and-color combos from experienced colorist Brent Bauer at Salon Concepts Oakley ($60–$175) or body waxing ($10+) under the gentle hands of Randy Jackson at Salon Concepts Florence. Check in for a noninvasive frown-removal procedure with a facial expert ($35+) or a stress-melting massage ($35+) from Erlinda Griffin at Salon Concepts Montgomery.
The Nail Suite is a nail SPA not to be confused with a quickie nail SHOP. Every service is done with the utmost care and precision with a focus on the health and wellness of your hands and feet. Although it is relaxing for everyone, we specialize in diabetic and elder care. We offer Manicures, Pedicures and Shellac.
Licensed massage therapist Deborah Hunter's massages are so revitalizing, they might make you want to take her everywhere you go. That was especially true for one client, who loved her treatments so much that she flew her out to Tuscany to provide massages for her house guests. This effect might be due to the fact that her skills in the art of bodywork combine with a natural intuition, thanks to her social-work experience. She uses that dual knowledge to ease customers' aches and knead away stress during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Fragrant aromatherapy oils bolster relaxation without attracting bees, and hot towels melt tension from muscles.
