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.
Helmed by an associate educator for Paul Mitchell, the Paul Mitchell-trained stylists at Mopp Hair Day Spa blend their keen eye for style with Paul Mitchell products to beautify clients. Before trimming hair, shampoo consultants lead clients to the spa’s lather lounge, where they soothe scalps with massages and revitalize hair with shampoos formulated for each client’s specific hair type. Before the final whisper of the blow dryer reveals their polished new ‘do, clients can keep their excitement in check by admiring the salon’s modern decor, which includes a waiting room filled with tufted leather benches, as well as chairs that were born as brunettes but now bear trendy zebra-stripes instead.
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.
The stylists at Shearnanigans Salon have extensive training, but they prefer to let it show subtly by giving each client an easy-to-manage hairstyle. They strategically cut and style locks, and an on-staff color specialist can add pops of accentuating color or change hues completely, which is also the extent to which coloring a lion’s mane pink changes how intimidating it is. The team’s extensive list of services also includes texturizing, braids, dreadlocks, extensions, and weaves.
Hair Connect Salon's certified stylists reshape the tresses of male and female guests in cushy black chairs. After free consultations, expert shampoos and deep-conditioning treatments whip locks into lustrous shape. Coiffures adopt new forms as specialists craft precise haircuts with laser-guided shears before drying and sculpting the freshly cut fringe. Patrons can gild dull tresses with partial or full highlights or blanket head grass with a rich coat of all-over color. Soothing blow-dries purge any excess moisture and warm napes, and the staff's omnipresent passion and friendliness can imbue clients with warm feeling as satisfying as sinking into a marshmallow-strewn bathtub of hot cocoa.
