No two clients who walk into Salon Solstice are alike. That's why the staffers hold thorough consultations with each client, getting a feel for his or her style and desired look before touching a pair of scissors or opening a nail polish bottle. Once they have an idea, stylists draw from an arsenal of brands they trust?which includes Pureology, Redken, and Biolage?to condition, shape, and dye hair for a completely customized look. Nail techs, meanwhile, rely on O.P.I. polishes to do everything from performing simple touch-ups to installing what they call "extreme acrylic nails." Clients can then put the finishing touches on new looks by bopping into one of the high-level tanning beds or undergoing a heated VersaPro spray tan.
Stiles Salon's stylists trim and color hair of every ilk in their bright, airy space, shaping looks with Bed Head and Scruples products. They skillfully snip the split ends of women, men, kids, and sentient mannequins alike. Mirrors positioned at each station reflect sleek, finished styles or works-in-progress as clients relax in plush black styling chairs. In addition to offering hair services, the staff lavishes clients' skin with tanning and spruces up nails in coats of regular or long-lasting CND Shellac polish.
Waxology?s name is an appropriate one, as the sole focus of the business is hair removal. Betsy, the salon?s hair-removal specialist, spreads warm wax across limbs, torsos, and bikini zones before swiping unwanted bristle away with a gentle touch. Although the treatments may last longer than shaving, they yield longer-lasting results and involve much less effort than teaching hairs not to grow.
A visit to Hair Taylors is about the experience—and afterward, almost as a bonus, your hair looks great. The team of stylists works on men's, women's, and kids' locks inside a relaxed studio that refreshes with complimentary lemonades, iced teas, and coffees. Along with haircare, Hair Taylors' day-spa services include mani-pedis and massages.
When the time came for Vickie and Victor Bennett to name their new day spa, they simply reached for an English-to-Italian dictionary. Vasaio, which means ‘potter’ in Italian, captures the Bennetts’s commitment to revealing the untapped beauty in each of their clients, much like a potter uncovers the beauty in wet clay or uncooked cookie dough. Using organic lotions, scrubs, and muds created in-house, as well as Keune Haircosmetics products imported from the Netherlands, Vasaio’s stylists, massage therapists, and nail technicians sculpt, soothe, and pamper their patrons amid a luxurious spa setting.
Dr. Laura Tinning leads Vasaio’s med-spa arm, administering and overseeing rejuvenating procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Botox and Juvéderm injections, and laser treatments. Armed with the Cutera laser system, Dr. Tinning and her team battle nail fungus, acne, unwanted hair growth, visible veins, and the body’s internal asteroid belt.
