The long corridor at Electric Beach Tanning & Salon is lined with doorways, each one leading into a world without traffic, deadlines, or ringing alarm clocks. Some of the rooms are dedicated to skincare treatments, others to tanning and hairstyling. But in one of them, licensed massage therapist Elaine brings time to a slow crawl while she loosens tense muscles with relaxing massages.
Though Elaine customizes her massages to meet your exact needs, she's especially skilled in Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques. If stress is what ails you, try the relaxing Swedish massage; if you pulled a muscle while barking furiously at the mailman, you'll likely benefit most from a sports massage.
Fig Leaf Salon's stylist combine technical prowess with style savvy to craft hairdos that embellish every face that saunters through the door. Their versatility allows them to carry out complete makeovers or simple trims, and their coloring services?which include full color and highlights?enrich haircuts and add more visual layers than a collage artist who doesn't know when to quit. Fig Leaf also staffs a nail technician whose artful eye and sanitized tools result in smooth skin and clean, brightly polished nails.
The beauty mavens at L'Marie smooth and tighten skin using hydrating body wraps administered to targeted areas or full bodies. In sessions lasting 30 minutes, a seaweed-and-peppermint wrap encapsulates upper arms, hips and thighs, torsos or uninspired frozen burritos in need of sprucing up. Alternatively, aestheticians can apply a whole-body coat for all-over hydration and cell detox. Masterful hands bind selected anatomy in the skin-nourishing solution before covering figures in a warm blanket to seal in the effects and ward off lonely bouquet-wielding mummies. Afterwards, staff members unwrap new birthday suits to reveal taut, freshly moisturized epidermises exhibiting a healthy, dewy glow.
Reflections Salon's licensed aestheticians dedicate undivided attention toward each of their guests' specific needs and pamper skin owners in a comfortable, clean atmosphere, Waxing services include quick-fixing tuft-terraforming sessions for the eyebrow (from $15) and upper lip (from $10) and each last less than 15 minutes. Meanwhile, treatments below the bellybutton like the bikini wax ($35+) extricate undesired hairs over a thorough 30- to 45-minute procedure, while their careful Brazilian waxes ($50+) quell rebellious thread uprisings in roughly 45 minutes.
