Ala Rouge Salon & Spa sets highly trained aestheticians to work smoothing heads, limbs, and faces with a slew of salon services. Waxing services help achieve a more placid pelt by sucking up stray strands from drooping upper lips ($12), bristling chins ($12), or sprawling eyebrows ($17). Clients can use their Groupon over multiple visits to repeatedly chasten fresh follicles, or all at once to prepare for an upcoming swim meet against dolphins. Frazzled locks can achieve similarly sanguine resurfacing with a keratin treatment. Using Keratin Complex products, stylists infuse natural keratin into follicular cores, resulting in a more manageable mane. The 90-minute process begins with a thorough wash, continues with the application and sealing of the serum, and ends with a free session of shaking your hair luxuriantly in front of the mirror. Strands should stay sleek for three to four months.
Stacy Carpenter at Visible Changes Salon keeps fingertips neatly groomed and keratin canvases fully illustrated with artistic nail services. In Shellac manicures, Stacy trims, shapes, and buffs nails into the fittest shape of their lives, then fortifies finger shields with a coat of Shellac that resists chipping for up to two weeks and resists transforming into a wolf claw whenever anger wells up inside of you. With the second option, Stacy adorns nails with handsome acrylics and adds color, glitter, and 3-D art such as zebra stripes and leopard spots.
When asked about her stance on skincare products, Jamie Jacob’s answer is simple: “If it doesn’t do something amazing, I don’t carry it.” The veteran aesthetician honed her keen ability to weed out the unworthy contenders through 600 hours of cosmetology schooling, which included extra training with Dermalogica, Eminence, Skin Script, and Tu'el Skin Care lines. Much like beauty-pageant contests, who are judged on personality alone, Jamie’s services span the beauty spectrum with an array of facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion treatments that keep epidermal expanses silky smooth, as well as massages that go hand-to-hand against troublesome aches.
Sunny Daze Tanning and Salon's lineup of spray-tan technology and UV-tanning equipment—including beds, standup booths, and leg tanners—keeps skin beaming with a summery, straight-off-the-beach appearance. With tanning packages available by the session, month, or year, the facility helps clients maintain bronzed tones no matter the season. To sustain the health of epidermal surfaces, customers can stop spoon-feeding pureed carrots to each pore and instead load up on an arsenal of brand-name lotions, tonics, and bronzers available for purchase. Tanning aside, the salon's aestheticians sap stress during manicures, facials, and a variety of massages, including soft-tissue treatments and magnet therapy.
Recessed-lighting panels glow in the ceiling like white checkerboard tiles, illuminating the salon's cozy leather loveseats and faux-marble floors. Amid these modern trappings, skilled stylist Lindsey Sloatman pairs cutting-edge techniques with Bumble and bumble products to transform hair. Clients may also seduce a stone-faced tax auditor with an elegant updo.
Whether they're treating a client to a shampoo and style, keratin complex treatment, or even a Glitter Girl party, the stylists at Salon W always go above and beyond to make sure each guest leaves happy and content with his or her look. Along with cuts and color, the stylists beautify hair with special occasion styles, extensions, and deep-conditioning treatments. They also pamper clients with Shellac polish on nails for long-lasting color.
Shear Envy's hip, full-service hair boutique beautifies patrons from head to freshly polished toes with an array of hair, skin, and body services. The contemporary space envelops clients in cool, aqua hues and modern amenities, including a state-of-the art color bar where hair wizards concoct custom color for vibrant new 'dos. The ever-training stylists tend to split ends and abandoned bird's nests with dry cutting, razor cutting, and classic precision cutting. Other spa-inspired services include vivifying facials, pampering pedicures and manicures, and swiftly administered waxing treatments.
