Cited by Vogue as the mastermind behind the now-iconic “beach hair” look, stylist Kevin Murphy travels the world crafting new hair designs. Despite this, his presence looms like a friendly but no-nonsense ghost at BeauImáge Salon. The salon’s six stylists use his eponymous line of hair products, as well as products from L’Oréal, to style creative cuts, elevate updos, and finish coloring sessions. Their services extend beyond hair, though. Two nail techs brighten digits with acrylic nails or Shellac polish, which refuses to chip even when hands are stuck in the mouth of a hungry pug.
Mother-daughter owners Brenda Willoughby and Ashton Wiley specialize in making women and men feel well-groomed and confident with a carefully selected menu of skincare, nailcare, and bodycare services. A team of nail techs and estheticians stands by ready to pamper clients from head to toe, and a boutique stocked with feminine accessories completes clients’ new makeovers like the frosting on a carrot. Nail technicians exfoliate phalanges and slather them in essential oils before polishing nails with products by OPI, LaLicious, and CND Shellac. Estheticians rely exclusively on natural, preservative-free skincare products by Sanitas to hydrate and cleanse countenances, and waxing sessions wick away unwanted hair with hard or soft waxes from Cirepil. On their way out, patrons can peruse the boutique’s purses, jewelry, and cashmere social-security cards.
At Twisted Scissors, a team of experienced, inventive stylists and aestheticians helps clients sculpt new hair styles, smooth out faces, and polish nails. Clients can revitalize locks with protein-infused conditioning treatments, prepare for special events with makeup analyses and applications, or exfoliate and nourish their skin with vitamin C and glycolic facials.
A self-styled "rock star salon," Twisted Scissors helps clients make bold, expressive choices with their hair, enlivening tresses with bright streaks of highlight or eye-popping all-over color. While the stylists create these daring looks, clients can relax with a cold beer or glass of wine.
The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Affordable Massage and Skin Care LLC help to rejuvenate bodies and minds with their roster of services. The complexion experts cleanse pores, tackle acne, and fight signs of aging with facials, light therapy, and body wraps. To ease tension, massage therapists perform bodywork modalities such as therapeutic massage, prenatal and postnatal massage, reflexology, shiatsu, and raptor rehabilitation.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
