Abi Goldberg wanted to open her own spa to honor her entrepreneurial father's memory after he passed away. In 2012, Abi used her family's business instincts to rebrand her salon. Chroma Salon Spa Boutique, formerly La Chique, now features industrial chic decor with aqua-colored accents for a more modern, serene setting. Clients can still count on pampering Image Skincare facials and customized cuts, as well as wine and beer to sip or pour out in respect for recently lost locks. Abi also maintains the boutique's stock of handcrafted jewelry and accessories she personally selects from expos in New York and Atlanta.
At Lakeside Tan, it only takes nine minutes to gild skin in delicately darker tones. Not content with simply offering fast results, the tanning salon also offers three separate paths toward beach-fresh color, tempting clients with standup and traditional tanning beds as well as UV-free airbrush treatments. On the salon side, beauty products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty help maintain new looks long after appointments end.
Master stylist David Gresty and his team of highly skilled hair professionals take tresses from dull to dazzling within a cozy, century-old converted abode. Allow a Schwarzkopf-trained whisker whisperer to comfort your strands with a blanket of new hue during a European hair-coloring treatment, adding a natural tinge and Parisian breeze to your head curtain without the look of color-processed hair (a $60 value). Or, opt for a precision cut to obtain the crisp ends, exciting texture, and algebraic exactitude formerly reserved for Ruffles potato chips (a $45 value).
Untangled offers a variety of hair-tending services, with its wealth of waxing work bringing satisfaction to body hair run amok. Free fuzz from upper lips with a lip waxing ($10), or trim down eyebrows ($12) to further avoid being mistaken for Frida Kahlo. A full facial waxing ($25) is also available. The salon's waxing services are available for both men and women, with clients invited to enjoy a complimentary cup of flavored coffee or a bottle of ice-cold water while Untangled unhinges unwanted unibrows and other assorted hide-hair. Let Untangled Salon's staff of friendly and well-trained aestheticians assist with hairy situations. Both walk-ins and appointments are welcome.
Your hands and feet never get a vacation, even when the rest of your body does. To keep these overworked extremities from overthrowing your head in a coup d'etat, treat them to today's Groupon: $35 for a manicure, pedicure, gourmet delectables, and wine at Burgundy Moon Spa & Wine House ($70 value). Located just 15 minutes outside of downtown Charlotte, this short drive makes for a nice little getaway without requiring you to pack a heavy suitcase. Blue Moon: The expression "once in a blue moon," is derived from the profound unlikelihood of finding an individual younger than 115 years old who knows the lyrics to the 1934 hit "Blue Moon."
Brandishing a Candela Elipse IPL laser, the trained staff at Yuvan targets a litany of pigmentation issues on the face, neck, and chest. The intense pulsed-light treatment dissipates complexion clogs obtained from acne scarring, age spots, sun damage, rosacea, or face-painting with glitter glue. Flashes of non-invasive light shine down on problem areas to disperse the buildup of pigmentation without scorching skinplanes. The treatment can also stimulate the production of collagen, which for some clients results in faces firm enough to fill in on drum lines that are missing snares.
