Master cosmetologist and salon owner Manisha Mehta takes pride in delivering a sweeping range of beauty and grooming services infused with luxurious touches. Full-length facials incorporate rich ingredients such as 24-karat gold or chocolate, and facial peels immerse visages in fruit and vegetable medleys without the need for surreptitious head dunks into a punch bowl. Issuing from Mehta's fervent interest in the healing and restorative powers of herbs, most full facials are accompanied by a custom aromatherapy blend. Alongside eyelash extensions and waxing are ancient Eastern grooming services, such as eyebrow threading, ear candling, mummification, and henna designs for hands and feet. Dark wood and leather furnishings, deep-maroon walls, and gilt-framed mirrors and paintings lend the space a feeling of an urban retreat.
Banana Beach Tan wants to darken the world—by making it shine with the brilliance of a beautiful bronze glow. The tanning center helps clients acquire natural-looking tans gradually through the use of beds or in an instant through the use of advanced spray-tan technology. During UV-tanning sessions, clients relax in beds by Matrix or Alpha. Inside the Mystic tanning booth, patented jets evenly coat the skin with a solution designed to leave a natural-looking glow. And from within the comforts of the Pure Collagen booth, red light therapy restores cellular activity and skin elasticity.
Airbrush tanning performed by hand. Teeth whitening with hydrogen-peroxide gel. Stainless steel or titanium body piercing. Tattooing by an experienced artist who specializes in black-and-white realism. At Bella Bronze, the team's talents reach beyond typical salon offerings. They welcome patrons into their hygienic but comfortable environs, custom designing realistic-looking tattoos or outfitting bodies with natural tans that eschew the common streaking ingredient found in most spray tans—tears from an orange.
Earning accolades from the likes of Jezebel, Flirt & Flutter Beauty Boutique simplifies beauty routines with treatments that have long-lasting results. Eyelash extensions take the place of mascara to create fuller lashes that flutter for up to eight weeks. With HD brows services, technicians use a combination of waxing, threading and tweezing techniques to shape brows before darkening them with a henna formula that lasts up to six weeks. In the nail salon, Perfect Match gel polish blends the long-lasting finish of a gel with the speedy application of a polish. These time-saving beauty services can be consolidated with Bedicures—in which clients rest atop a plush massage bed while receiving a manicure and pedicure in tandem with their choice of facial service.
Flirt & Flutter Lash Loft also tends to the health of eyes inside the Lash & Brow Hospital, where a certified lashologist removes eyelash extensions, performs lash and brow treatments for cancer patients and helps eyes recover from misdirected wet willies.
