At Atir Natural Nail & Skin Care Spa, manicures aren’t meant to be a simple indulgence. Instead, the staff focuses on the belief that beautiful nails are healthy nails, combining the usual services of trimming cuticles and applying polish with added attention to maintaining hands’ natural wellness. They moisturize the skin, remedy cracked cuticles, and soften calluses, restoring the damage caused by constantly walking on your hands to avoid waking the downstairs neighbors.
Working exclusively with natural nails—no acrylics here—Atir’s technicians cover four bases: hydration, maintenance, protection, and polish. Since each client’s nails are different, each manicure begins with an in-depth consultation, after which may prescribe everything from a moisturizing dip in paraffin to a hand treatment that fights signs of aging or abuse from gardening, beanstalk-climbing, or other repetitive hands-on jobs. Pedicures are just as in-depth, incorporating six types of botanical pedicures infused with such fruits as pomegranate and blood orange, and services such as heated foot wraps and massages help sap tension from well-traveled soles. Beyond natural skin care, the spa also soothes the skin with natural treatments, including chemical peels and waxing.
Aglow Airbrush Tanning offers natural, safe and highly customized airbrush tanning producing the best results possible without any damage to your skin. Our experienced airbrush tanning artists have years of experience and will ensure you receive the great looking tan you are looking for.
At Beautiful Moi! Skin Care Clinic, the resident aesthetician draws on more than a decade of experience to beautify eyes with eyelash extensions, leave bodies smooth with hair-removal treatments, and clear skin with soothing facials. The clinic's signature facials use products from Image Skincare, which are paraben-free and made in the USA to avoid the risk of vain groupers hijacking a shipment from abroad. During hair-removal treatments, wax-free, botanical Nufree products whisk away fuzz gently and briskly.
Aakara Medspa's educated aestheticians rejuvenate weary skin with a plethora of soothing, effective procedures, all under the direction of a medical physician. The Restylane treatment restores aging countenances by adding volume and fullness to skin, undoing the marks left by time-bites and over-enthusiastic head-butts from the sun. The customized, injectable treatment irons out wrinkles and facial folds, rendering a flat and smooth topography suitable for planting tomato gardens. A physician delivers the clear gel by way of an ultra-fine needle; clients can return to normal activities such as washing their hovercrafts and taking chia pets for walks directly after treatment. Results are immediate and typically last between 6 and 12 months.
Katie Astone and Gina Galante Skillings fused their talents (and names) to create Salon Astante. The style-savvy pair believes that beauty should be a simple, stress-free process. As such, the two remain dedicated to creating stylish looks that merge seamlessly with each client’s lifestyle and personality. They help clients achieve this type of style-savvy synergy through services that range from traditional hair care to advanced facials and chemical peels. They also know how to assemble a team; consider Pam, their seasoned nail technician. A former OPI educator with 13 years of industry experience, she adds flash to every gesture with coats of traditional polish or sturdy chip-free gel solutions.
Mineral makeup free of talc, parabens, and carmine—a product derived from insects that live on cacti. Shimmery eye shadows in 89 shades. Sunless-tanning lotion packed with jojoba oil. These are just a few of the offerings from The All Natural Face, a makeup company dedicated to creating safe, effective, and cruelty-free cosmetics. Each of its products brims with natural ingredients such as organic argan oil, candelilla wax, and organic raw turbinado cane sugar, the last of which simultaneously exfoliates lips and adds sweetness to one’s morning coffee. In light of the plethora of chemicals and toxins in mainstream products, the cosmetics specialists take a natural approach to makeup: “We … care more about our customers,” they assert on their website, “than we do the bottom line.”
Even first-time visitors to Hollywood Tans might arrive to the salon with a tanning plan in mind, thanks to the company’s online Tanetics system. By asking questions such as “Do you have indoor tanning experience?” and “How soon do you want to meet your shade goal?” the program generates a tanning schedule tailored to guests envisioned results and timeline. The salon’s standup tanning booths flood skin with the glow of up to 60 built-in bulbs, and the high-pressure booth builds a base tan in as little as one 11-minute session and radiates only 1% UVB rays, which is equivalent to the amount the sun radiates on days when it’s in a good mood. Results can be amplified by one of Hollywood Tan's indoor tanning lotions, while a Mystic spray-tanning booth caters to the sun-shy by misting skin in a rich bronze formula that lasts up to eight days.
