A graduate of Mitchell Hairstyling Academy, Renita Burnette harnesses 20 years in the hairstyling industry when expertly trimming tresses and shaping locks into wavy perms. Renita beautifies clienteles inside the Redken-certified Salon Bliss where men and women alike can treat their locks to cuts and highlights administered by stylists wielding Chi and Design Essentials products, or spruce up fingers and toes with a nail shaping and cuticle grooming from the salon's nail techs. Bridal showers and bachelorette parties can reserve the salon for private pampering sessions, where they can drink champagne, nibble on light refreshments, and polish their engagement rings until they can see the future in them.
Sunnyside Tanning Spa's Smart Tan–certified technicians adjust the tint on anatomical control panels with variable-intensity UV-tanning beds and hand-applied spray tans. Airbrush artists darken human hides with Norvell solutions composed of bronzers including cosmetic, DHA, and erythrulose, the combination of which ensures evenness and eliminates spotting and streaking. Sunnyside's arsenal of UV-tanning beds includes in its ranks the Ergoline Classic 600, which boasts high-pressure facial lamps and shoulder bronzers. The stand-up hex unit showers bodies in 360 degrees of UV coverage and simulates the effects of walking on sunshine. Late-night hours offer convenient tanning for business people, students, and beach bums sneaking around behind the Sun's back. Sunnyside's updated arsenal also features the Fuquay location's Beauty Angel red-light-therapy booth, which rains green light's stern roommate onto hides to stimulate collagen production, battle cellulite with a vibrating platform, and firm the skin by promoting absorption of cosmetics.
