Jolie Salon & Day Spa has a team of beauty gurus that's 70 strong, and not one has ended up there by chance. After graduating from cosmetology school, new stylists earn their place among their peers by completing an apprentice program overseen by master stylists. There, the up-and-coming embrace the salon's established philosophy of working for client's features and lifestyle. And that doesn't stop at the hair. Estheticians prescribe personalized facial treatments and chemical peels that incorporate everything from European seaweed blends to active blueberry extracts to improve each individual's tone and texture. When salves and balms aren't enough, technology steps in?microdermabrasion wands address signs of aging and submicronic oxygen facials push pure oxygen and vitamins deep into the skin.
Elsewhere throughout Jolie Salon & Day Spa's 6,000 square feet, massage therapists incorporate aromatherapy and hot stones into their Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology techniques. Reflexology can also be found in the technicians' nail treatments, which leave cuticles sparkling beneath the rounded track lighting. Exposed ductwork hangs from the high ceilings throughout, serving as a constant reminder of the spa's air-purification and exhaust systems, which whisk away chemical aromas and the speech bubbles of past conversations to leave the salon smelling fresh and naturally clean.
Nu Waves Salon & Day Spa knows that hair needs protein just as much as the rest of the body does. That's why stylists there pick from four keratin-protein-based products formulated by Coppola, Brazilian Blowout, Simply Smooth, and plant-based KeraGreen, depending on which they judge to be most effective at strengthening frizzy locks. The protein enriches each strand, leaving hair softer, sleeker, and more manageable for up to five months. These keratin straightening treatments are the head of a parade of hair services that range from full color and highlights to perms to haircuts for men, women, children, and border collies who speak enough English to pass for human. Away from the bustling salon floor stand private treatment rooms, where aestheticians perform facials, microdermabrasion, and hot-stone massages, as well as a French-clay body mask that draws toxins from the skin.
Stylists certified in Goldwell, Wella, and Pravana hair color snip and style chic hairdos in a calming salon characterized by natural earth tones. The team analyzes the natural movement of each head of hair and collaborates with clients to design face-flattering cuts that match their style and colors that complement complexions or cummerbund collections. To this end, they wield an arsenal of all-natural shampoos, conditioners, and styling gels that include paraben- and sulfate-free Kevin.Murphy products, fortified with plant extracts, essential oils, and antioxidants.
Hollywood Tans' proprietary booths and technologies produce consistent skin tones without the hassle of baking in the sun. The studio boasts roughly 15 upright, sanitary booths that allow customers to do jumping jacks as they build bronze in 8–11 minutes. For those who prefer to shade sans rays, Mystic spray vestibules banish pallor by misting pelts in aloe-rich custom shades that last up to seven days, and a proprietary line of tanning lotions helps maintain and maximize color between visits.
When Creative Designs Hair Studio's owner Nancy Nassar started her salon, she knew she wanted to clear-cut the impediments and general annoyances that can be part of the industry. She shunned the surprise fees and brusque services, and filled her modern salon with stylists eager to discuss trends and chat about techniques. Each appointment begins with a consultation during which hair experts discuss treatments and provide full pricing before they begin. To back each of their haircut and skin and body services, Creative Designs offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee; if clients aren't happy with the results, they can return for a touch-up, refund, or free bear hug.
