When it comes to beauty, the possibilities truly seem infinite at Infiniti's Hair Salon and Spa. It all starts with the experienced stylists, who listen and take notes before crafting each flattering look. Haircuts don't even begin to cover their long list of treatments; in fact, their specialty lies in changing how hair looks and feels on the molecular level with perms, relaxers, and conditioning treatments. Over in the spa, nail technicians check to make sure that all little piggies have returned from the market before applying polish in your choice of color.
During the spa mani-pedi, Ofelia’s Salon & Spa’s crack squad of nail technicians sculpt unruly talons and corral wild cuticles in a flurry of precision clips and buffs. A callus softener accosts rough, flaky patches before a file sloughs off extraneous skin cells. Extremities then bathe in a salt scrub before slipping into a moisture mask that sinks into the skin and rinses clean, leaving hands and feet as velvety soft as a throw pillow made from Barry White’s voice. Meanwhile, a skilled aesthetician massages legs and feet from the knee down, untying tendon knots and relaxing tense muscles. A base coat and two layers of the patron’s choice of polish set up nails for colorful struts through the yellow pages.
When Wink Lash Company & Glam Spa's owner Crimson Lyons performs her signature eyelash extensions, she refuses to look at the clock. Instead, she takes the time to ensure each natural lash receives an extension. This way, lashes are not only longer and thicker, but they appear to be natural, whether the client is going for a dramatic or understated look. The aesthetician also offers facials, waxing, lash and brow tinting, and makeup applications, as well as DaVinci laser teeth-whitening treatments.
Alpine proprietor and registered nurse Sandy Pelton blasts follicles to smithereens using a Candela GentleLase laser. At the first session, which lasts around 60 minutes, patients consult with Sandy to determine the appropriate laser hair-removal treatment plan. Next, Sandy unleashes a cool laser's pulsed energy directly onto the fuzzy patch, rooting out body fringe down at the follicle level. Each of the following sessions lasts about 30–45 minutes, or the time it takes to appreciate all the nuances of a Calvin and Hobbes strip. The full $600 Groupon value can be applied toward evicting hair from larger body areas, such as a full bikini (top and sides; $900/six treatments), upper or lower legs ($1,012/six treatments), or full men's back ($1,800/six treatments).
