Golden-hued walls radiate warmth inside Trendsetters Salon and Spa, where an equally inviting staff stands eager to turn envisioned hairstyles into reality. With the help of Redken and Pureology products, stylists clip, color, and highlight locks. An aesthetic team mirrors the styling team's customer-service focus, but instead leads clients to treatment rooms more private than a diary’s secret bibliography. Inside, staff members perform massages, spray tans, waxing, and facials.
Brad Olsen Tan has been bronzing bodies since 1965 and houses an army of tanning beds, available in six levels, as well as airbrush and Mystic Tan technology. The to-be tanned can choose to stand or lay in bronzing booths, letting UV lamps shine down on epidermises to infuse a glow as shiny and coppery as a collection of freshly polished pennies. Bronze-seekers can also opt to achieve sun-smooched skin in minutes with a Mystic Tan, which covers skin with a coppery coating of aloe-vera bronzers. This tan-ifying mist may take a few hours to become visible on skin, but the process is complete in less than one minute, or about the time it takes to say "Mystic Tan" backward.
The extremity experts at Sorelle Salon remodel hands and feet with a selection of manicure and pedicure services. The Shellac manicure reinforces fingernails with a polymer-based polish that resists chipping for up to two weeks, and its "3-free" status bars the invasion of formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP. The pedicure softens feet with a dip in aromatherapy oils and an exfoliating scrub sloughs off dry skin for added smoothness. The series of three pedicures pairs with three regular manicures that recalculate digits with a shaping of the cuticles and nails, a swim in hydrating oils, and a nap in a pair of warming mitts. Polish off hand pampering with a coat of color, selecting from a spectrum of OPI shades or an emperor's selection of invisible pigments.
Maria Guasta started cosmetology school in her junior year of high school and earned her license before she even graduated. When she turned 23, she bought Savage Hair International and devised her own training program for the stylists she hired, sculpting manes for Broadway productions and New York Fashion Week in the meantime. Two decades later, this style prodigy turned beauty-industry veteran continues to develop her salon and personally train each of her stylists, equipping them with products by Schwarzkopf and MoroccanOil. In her spare time, she spreads her instructional talents beyond her salon's walls as an educator with the Rusk creative team, teaching other stylists how to forge stylish haircuts without actually lowering their clients' ears.
