At OLA Salon & Spa, Jeff draws on his training from Toni&Guy Advanced Academy and Wella professional seminars to craft individualized looks and revamp client's hair. He and his team of stylists work eyeball-to-eyeball with clients to develop styles that suit their facial shapes and lifestyles, and the salon's full-length mirrors let customers make sure their new hairstyles match their shoes. During signature cuts, colour, and texture services, he relies on professional, salon-grade hair products. He sprinkles hair with products that include Biosilk, Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and L'anza, which contains botanical extracts and amino acids designed to heal hair from environmental damage. In addition to hairstyling, the professionals at Ola also offer spa services such as mani-pedis, facials, and hair removal.
Black arches above each mirror contrast the shimmering white tiles inside Simona Hair Salon & Esthetics, where potted trees and plants breathe life into the chic monochrome scheme. Guests might feel as though they are sitting in a luxury garden gazebo as they consult with stylists to pin down their desired look. From haircuts, colour, and perms to aesthetic services such as facials and mani-pedis, the salon's offerings beautify patrons in a serene and positive setting. Special event packages can gussy up bridal groups or primp holiday partygoers without the hassle of hooking extension cords to scrunchies made of Christmas lights.
In an airy salon filled with natural light, sleek wood floors, and top-of-the-line service stations, Studio Gissoo's team of energetic specialists creates a fun, social, and relaxing space to escape the hustle of daily life.

At the beauty-tech table, resident aesthetician Cynthia soothes and smoothes skin and extremities with waxing, mani-pedis, and indulgent sugaring services. Bernie, the laser jedi, eradicates evil empires of body fuzz and relieves the self-consciousness associated with stretch marks, rosacea, scars, and blemishes.
When tanning at a salon, the end result is usually more important than the process. Nevertheless, at Caribbean Exposure, the Smart Tan certified staff aim to make every session go beyond its sun-kissed results and become an enjoyable experience, from their collection of CDs to listen to during tans to the complimentary deodorant clients can use to freshen up after. Their list of thoughtful add-ons also extends to the tanning process itself, with SPF gloss that can protect lips and tattoos from sun damage and a selection of sample accelerator lotions that feature extra cooling power, more bronzer, or simply a delicious layer of chocolate. With these perks, clients can choose to bronze in either the salon’s numerous tiers of UV beds or their spray tanning booths, which apply a seamless tan that last for up to a week.
First opened more than 20 years ago, Golden Hands Hair Design's sunny salon continues to house stylists and aestheticians as they enhance the natural beauty of both men and women.

Eli and his staff also target acne, scars, and the signs of age with noninvasive med spa treatments such as microdermabrasion.

A knowledgeable crew of bronzers keeps patrons educated about their tanning choices and offers the latest tanning technology and custom spray-tanning equipment. With private treatment rooms, the staff ensures individual attention, and massage therapists untie stress knots from muscles and create an atmosphere more calming than a nap in a glass of warm milk.
