The stylists at R Place Salon skillfully trim tresses and artfully highlight locks to capture the sun-streaked look of summer or the moonlit look of a long Alaskan winter. Keratin treatments tame frizzy, unmanageable hair, while perms add bounce and body to straight strands. Massage therapists on staff knead tension out of muscles as nail techs primp and polish nails with mani-pedis.
Airbrush tanning isn't just the signature service at SprayChic, it's the only service. The tanning specialists at this Farmington spa are some of the best in the business at what they do, and they pour all of their energy into each and every tanning experience. Whether they're inside their own studio or making a house call, their first step is always to provide everything you might need, including disposable undergarments, nose filters, and eye covers.
Then comes the sunless tanning solution—but this isn't just any solution. Its special formula contains non-toxic DHA, a derivative of sugar cane, as its active ingredient. The DHA reacts with the amino acids in skin to produce a bronze hue that never looks orange or unnatural. Best of all, the solution can also help to diminish the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, and other blemishes. With proper maintenance, an airbrush tan typically lasts up to seven days, thought it might last longer if your diet consists solely of carrots.
As owner of Ruby Blu Salon, Michael Barone brings 13 years of experience to its styling operations, overseeing staff members who sculpt tresses amid exposed ceilings, track lighting, and portraits of models with stylish 'dos. The son of a professional hairstylist, Michael followed in his father's footsteps—a difficult task, as they were filled in with hair clippings. In addition to traditional haircut and color services, his team smooths frizzy tendrils with keratin smoothing treatments and nourishes coiffures with products by Moroccanoil and Kemon Nayo Organic Color.
There's a secret hidden in the name of Bellis Therapeutic Spa: "Bellis" is actually an acronym that describes the staff's values. The team maintains a diverse menu of massages, peels and facials, and body scrubs and wraps. But every single treatment, without exception, is guided by the core priorities stashed in the Bellis name. "B" refers to a Belief in natural products and ingredients. Aestheticians scrub bodies with white tea and ginger, milk with honey and ginger, and herbed lavender salt. Holistic treatments such as ear candling celebrate natural methods, and oatmeal facial masks help nourish, hydrate, soothe, fuel, and disguise bank-robbing clients all at once. "E" stands for Empowering, the first "L" is for Listen, and the second "L" is for Learning. These three values work in tandem, as staffers pay close attention to clients' goals and concerns, then empower them with personalized skincare education clients can take home. "I" is for Integrity, meaning that the team respects guests' privacy and needs, while the last "S," standing for Services, refers to the leisurely pace at which clients are encouraged to enjoy each treatment.
With two locations and a slate of the latest hair, skin, and waxing treatments, Glory Salon is keeping things chic in both Farmington and Livonia. Stylists combine their skills with products from Purity Design and Aquage to create updos with staying power, correct botched at-home color jobs, and smooth frizz. When they're not styling or coloring hair, the staff is likely to be found removing it from the brows, bikini area, and anywhere in-between, or fawning over complexions with cleansing and rejuvenating facials. Options include everything from microdermabrasion and oxygen-rich treatments to basic European facials, which are just like American facials, but without the mask made from eagles' tears.
Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Michelle Hardaway and her staff customize each cosmetic procedure to the customer's needs, vein visibility, and Planeteer power.
