Experienced hair stylists roll open the drawers of black-trimmed dressers and grab gleaming pairs of scissors. They turn back to their clients, who nestle in squeaky-clean, white styling chairs, and begin by ruffling manes long and short, getting a feel for the flow and texture of each head of hair as they prepare to transform it. All the while, ensconced in private treatment rooms, nail technicians and massage therapists tend to clients relaxing on plush pedicure chairs. All About the Hair Salon and Spa's clients can seek out any of the salon's forms of pampering, from haircuts to waxing to long-lasting Shellac manicures, and expect the same friendly demeanor and attention to detail from their stylists. The salon also houses a cozy waiting area, where guests relax on an L-shaped sofa accented by a modern rug and vases filled with flowers and the calming sound of the ocean.
In order to spread sunshine across Detroit dermises regardless of season, VIP Tanning keeps its tanning technology future-compatible and its salon clean enough to inspire envy among surgeons. The VersaSpa Professional Skincare System skips the burns and vulgar graffiti caused by old-fashioned star-based technologies and instead showers exposed skin with a pH-balancing and conditioning primer, followed by a spritz of bronzer and a hydrating and firming spray that locks in color and smoothes away fine lines. The air-purification system keeps the oxygen breathable, and the Comfort-Dry technology air-towels you off between sprays. The session takes ten to fifteen minutes, and the tan lasts up to seven days, commonly known as a “sevener.”
The team at Miracle Browz has one objective in mind: to help clients enhance their beauty naturally. They specialize in eyebrow threading, but also provide treatments such as organic sugar waxing, traditional henna tattoos, and therapeutic facials that incorporate antioxidants, grape botanicals, and saffron. Facial treatments are customized to target each client's needs, treating skin ailments that range from acne and hyperpigmentation to signs of aging and stress-induced second noses.
The technicians at Quickii Nails see the tip of each finger as an opportunity for a multimedia project. They might cover nails completely with one shade of shimmery polish, alternate between complementary colors, or draw the eye to spiraling designs, some of which sport rhinestones or polka dots to confuse your predators into thinking you’re actually a cheetah. From classic and Shellac manicures to applications of acrylics, each tiny example of artistry is unique to the client's tastes.
Whether you need regular therapy for pain or just a one-hour vacation during the day, Lori Bazzetta at Massage for your Health has a variety of techniques to help relax the muscles and soothe the nervous system. Depending on your needs, she can draw from modalities such as deep tissue, myofascial, trigger point, or acupressure for the massage. There’s also the sports massage, which targets specific muscle groups, such as the calves for a runner or the shoulders for a baseball player.
Dena Marie’s Salon & Spa’s hairstylists specialize in formal updos. Augmented by Lox extensions—crafted from 100% human hair—or held in place by hair balms from Bed Head and Matrix, the formal looks prepare patrons for glitzy events from proms to the salon’s second specialty—weddings.
Their team, which also consists of manicurists, regularly attends continuing-education courses to keep their services up-to-date with the latest beauty trends. Fresh out of the workshops, they turn their shears and dyes toward shaping and coloring manes, and drape frazzled locks with shine during keratin smoothing treatments. They also provide spa treatments that include waxing and paraffin dips that remove dry skin from bodies more effectively than attempting to drive them out by playing annoying music over loudspeakers throughout the night.
