Judging by their titles, Loanne the manicurist, Veronica the colorist, Donato the barber, and America the stylist could be the members of a salon-themed rock band. Instead, they're the staff at the heart of Blue Moon Salon, a boutique beauty shop. This quartet works together to perform precise custom haircuts for men, women, and kids, coloring treatments and highlights, and manicures with vibrant, glittery polishes.

Sheer Bliss's skilled technicians begin each facial with a skin analysis and then brew a blend of earth-originating products customized to your specific skin type, be it metamorphic or extra-crispy. A thorough cleansing will open shuttered pores so that the stimulating exfoliation can steam-roll through and clear them of dirt, oil, caked makeup, caked cake, and families of raccoons. Sheer Bliss uses only organic Éminence skincare products from Hungary to ensure that cells are mollycoddled with nature's sweetest cocktail of nutrients. Finally, you'll receive a lymphatic massage of the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and arms to improve circulation.
Many dentists use a UV light to whiten their patient’s teeth, but only the beauty experts at Twilight Teeth reasoned that clients could use the same light to tan their skin while whitening their teeth. The UV lights of their tanning beds shine on bodies and illuminate smiles, comfortably held open by a mouth guard and coated in gel. The gel activates under the light and contains 25% peroxide—among the highest concentrations in the industry. Since the gel is painted on instead of held in place by a whitening tray, it can brighten high beams with minimal discomfort. Clients who can’t stay at the tanning salon can take home a kit, which substitutes a portable UV light or a mason jar filled with baby stars.
Customizing a massage requires blending various modalities. When certified massage therapist Amaris Amezquita incorporates another modality into the mix, the shift occurs so seamlessly, many clients never notice the change. As her hands deliver long, rolling Swedish strokes, they may chance upon knotted muscles and petrified tendons, which require the firm cross-grained strokes of deep-tissue techniques. Rather than breaking the spell by starting over or pausing for an intermission, Amaris smoothly transitions to the new modality. Amaris makes massages easy not only with smooth delivery and transitions. She also saves clients the trouble of commuting by traveling to their homes.
