A gold mermaid watches out over the bustling activity inside NY Splash Beauty Salon. As jets of water splash up against the gilded sculpture, clients seated at the reception bar relax before and after treatments, soaking in the sounds of tiny crashing waves. During appointments, stylists pamper patrons above the neck with haircuts, color treatments, and makeup applications. On the spa side, nail technicians clip, buff, and coat keratin covers with vibrant hues. Their waxing experts remove unwanted follicles from legs, arms, and faces in procedures that take less time than shaving or securing an eviction notice for squatting hairs.

Sunsations offers a wide breadth of tanning options, including traditional beds, standup tanning, and spray booths. The Mystic spray tan outwits the sun by bronzing human statues without exposing them to UV rays. Silver level tans give a range of solar-powered options, such as the Suncapsule, 12 minutes in a stand-up booth at 7,000 watts, and the Orion, which tracks down 15 minutes of tanning with three facials at 5,000 watts (only available at Norwalk location). Tanning neophytes can ask the friendly staff at Sunsations what type of tanning bed and lotion are the right fits for their skin types. Dogs must be 192 years old to enjoy Sunsations, while humans only need to be 16.

The expert stylists at Today’s Salon & Spa skillfully frame faces with haircuts and highlights. After consulting with clients, scissors-wielders snip and trim fringe to transform cranial gardens into chic coiffures before enlivening mop tops with partial highlights. Tress-tamers saturate manes with up to 10 foils, adding flair to the noggin and saving strands from impending gray or transparent hues. The Moroccan-oil treatment infuses locks with moisture, helping to restore a shiny sheen to dull or dry manescapes. The styling package culminates with a blow-dry and style, which releases newly refined ‘dos back into the wild with more style than an evening gown made of fashion magazines.

Hair Today's seasoned stylists snip and primp their clients' manes with products such as Redken, Matrix, and American Crew, accentuating flattering features and keeping coifs in vogue or defiantly out of it. A shampoo cleans and freshens follicles, and a cut carves strands into enticing new forms, a two-step process as salutary as removing leaves and debris from a car's grill before brushing it with a full bucket of toothpaste. Head fronds can shift allegiance to another frequency along the spectrum of visible light after a partial color, and a supervening blow-dry finalizes the sleek new ‘do. Gentlemen, alternatively, can swing by the salon twice for a pair of 30-minute haircuts that keep domes trimmed and dapper enough to sweet-talk fedoras into never caving, no matter how much downward force a piggyback rider can exert on them.

Hair Conditioner: Ticket to a Molecular Makeover

Your hair?s sure to feel silkier once your stylist conditions it?learn why with Groupon?s close-up look at conditioner.

Although human hair may look smooth, each strand's outer layer?the cuticle?is actually quite rough. Under dry conditions, the tiny scales that cover its surface become raised and brittle, causing hairs to tangle and lose their shine. Conditioner aims to correct this problem by bonding a particular class of molecules, called cationic surfactants, to the cuticle. This is possible because keratin, the protein that makes up most of the hair shaft, bristles with negative ions, which attract the positively charged surfactants, coating each thread in a thin film that weighs it down and reduces frizz. (The negative charge of keratin is also what causes static whenever positive ions are stripped from the hair?the static that makes it possible to stick a balloon to the wall or to power a miner's headlamp.)

The other ingredients in conditioner don't always need ions to do their jobs well. Humectants suck in water from the surrounding air, thereby moisturizing the hair, and oils simply penetrate the cuticle. Glossers coat the hair with light-reflecting polymers, increasing shine, whereas other ingredients raise the acidity level of the conditioner, which helps protect the hair's protein structure.
