In the cascades of light that roll off the glass tendrils of hanging chandeliers, Studio eMMe's licensed stylists gussy up men and women, drawing upon training from Bumble and bumble. Visits to the studio begin with a consultation, tailoring services to suit each individual's tastes, style, and batting-helmet size. Armed with an arsenal of products from Too Faced, Goldwell, and Bumble and bumble, senior or staff stylists apply extensive experience alongside supervised junior stylists. A circular cutout in the salon's carmine wall draws eyes away from skillfully manipulated shears and back to the waiting room, where guests flick through magazines on a geometric-print couch.

Nail technician Demi gives her full attention to each client settled in her private, one manicure station suite. Here, she carefully examines digits, determining their level of health, before beautifying them with coats of polish or, for an additional fee, nail art.

At TanGirl, customers can use the Infinity Sun tanning system to achieve a sun-free tan, using a skin-safe walnut-based bronzer. The formula can last up to 10 days and looks after skin with a blend of antioxidants and botanicals. Each tanning session is customized for the client, either on location in clients’ homes or at TanGirl's spa room at Divine Salon and Spa. A spray-tan technician uses the Infinity Sun airbrush device to apply the tanning solution more evenly. The versatile Infinity Sun brush can also cover the skin with a mist of moisture or shimmer for special occasions, such as beach vacations or family reunions with the pod of dolphins that raised you.
