Vicky Barger transforms hairstyles from her styling chair, taking flat hair to fuller heights and adding dimension or volume to lackluster hairdos. Barger was drawn to the salon thanks to its "wonderful atmosphere with professional stylists and an awesome boss." The salon's stylists possess a wealth of beauty-industry experience, including owner Barry Menser's 30 years behind the chair, and each employee practices their own specialty. Barger's specialty is color, and she often sweeps brushes saturated with custom-mixed Matrix, J Beverly Hills, and Schwarzkopf hues through monochromatic strands after meeting with clients in a thorough consultation and tucking encouraging notes inside their headbands. As hair is reborn in new, more fashionable formations, clients can eye the salon's serene images of boats and ballet and sip complimentary cups of tea, cocoa, and soda.
Sundays Blue Box Tanning Resort's fleet of European-imported tanning equipment polishes pallid epidermal canvases into glowing, copper sculptures. Sun Angel photoelectric sensors analyze guests' skin tones to calculate the optimal temperature and time needed to bronze bodily temples without overbaking them.

In addition to tanning services, Sundays? team helps guests lose inches and ease pain with PhysEdge Fit infrared body wraps, which work in tandem with the Fit Booster mineral spray to burn up to 1400 calories. Early morning and evening hours at all of Sundays' 18 locations ensure guests will never again be mistaken for a scared polar bear.
Yolanda knows how to get hair looking its best. She lends a helping hand with her professional cuts, coloring treatments, and other styling services.

Salters Creek serves as an intimate mini getaway from daily doldrums with a full array of relaxing and beautifying services. Glycolic acid, the most miniature of the alpha-hydroxies, mines clogged-up pores during a 60-minute facial package designed to unearth the shining ore of beautiful skin. The initial peel sweeps away aged and sun-damaged cells to reveal the fresh, pure dermis beneath. Then, ultrasonic exfoliating therapy harnesses high-frequency oscillations to shatter blemishes exactly like an opera singer screaming in a funhouse mirror maze. The peel finishes with a Thermogel cooling mask, hydrating and nourishing post-peel skin surfaces.
At Nail Tech and More, nail-art specialists Dawn, Kandi, and Khym beautify digits with ornate embellishments ranging from Fimo decals to spinning beads. Swarovski crystals, Mylar, and glitter accents set nails a-sparkle, and 3-D designs and junk-nail options turn them into ornate, miniature sculptures. Technicians can even customize nail shape: stiletto nails taper off into fierce points, and corkscrew nails swirl off fingertips and into inconveniently stuck wine corks.
The trio also provides more traditional nailcare services. Manicures spoil hands and feet with treatments such as melted paraffin, hot stones, warm towels, and massages, and acrylic nails and Shellac gel polishes proffer long-lasting color. Alternatively, spray tans and waxing sessions pamper bodies all over.
