Winter pallor doesn't stick around long once a customer steps into Sun Station Tanning. The salon presents several different ways to get a sun-kissed glow: vertical beds, horizontal beds, and UV-free spray tanning booths. For the traditional route, staffers can help customers select different tanning lotions. They might also recommend one of the shop's fashionable bags or jewelry pieces, which go nicely with newly bronzed skin or those full-body suits of armor that are really in this season.
The Big Funky Hair Salon welcomes clients with vintage furniture and a homey, residential vibe. Stylists use these quirky accents as their muse when crafting custom cuts and colors to fit each individual's features. A team of skincare pros works alongside them, cleansing complexions with facials and waxing away unwanted hair from upper lips, bikini zones, and legs. Meanwhile, nail techs pamper hands and feet with relaxing mani-pedis and decorate nails with custom designs that include ribbons, feathers, and whimsical renderings of social-security numbers.
The Healing Den of Salem is a haven of holistic health therapies that rely on the power of light and sound. The studio's New Aura LED bed is like a tanning bed that allows the body to bask in green, amber, red, and infrared rays. These hues are thought to target ailments such as inflammation, frazzled nerves, and fear of darkrooms. Supplementing this light therapy is sound vibration therapy, which uses specific frequencies to promote calming or pamper the chakras.
Although Sarah Bent spent 13 years as a high-school English/ESL teacher, she recently decided to return to her first passion: cosmetology. Inside Liberty Street Hair and Nail Studio's homey salon, Sarah beautifies clients with hair and nail care. Men, women, and kids alike can get a new style or trim, and she also updates locks with full color or touchups. She also performs mani-pedis and waxes brows and lips to perfection.
When the body is not properly maintained, it tends to rebel by way of spasms, muscle tension, and walking purposely into brick walls. Urban Studio helps prevent such passive aggression with soothing bodywork techniques. A licensed massage therapist administers relaxing Swedish strokes or sidelines deep aches with focused pressure. The studio also offers exfoliating body scrubs that reduce the signs of aging.
The professionals at Salem's Elite Hair Salon & Spa bring more than 20 years of experience to the styling table. When they aren't busy taming manes or weaving in dimensional highlights, Sheri, and Lisa Ann can be found performing a slew of other feel-good treatments, such as waxing services that allow clients to duct-tape themselves to each other without fear of a painful aftermath.
