At Everything’s Hair, clients can rest assured their new haircuts will enhance their features and attract attention. Here, specially trained mane tamers showcase a meticulous attention to detail, snipping strands to accent facial features and tailoring hair color to complement skin tone or the color of the horse they ride into work each morning. The stylists also wield ecofriendly products from NYR Organic, a London-based company that crafts all-natural lotions, cosmetics, and shampoos.
The stylists at Tres Chic Salon keep abreast of trendy hairstyling techniques, which they use to achieve the looks that their clients desire. Their services encompass more than just haircuts, color treatments, and highlights, though; they also provide nailcare and waxing. During every treatment, they pull high-quality products from the likes of Pureology, Chi, and Tammy Taylor Nails.
Since 2004, The Birdcage Salon's meticulous stylists have injected pizzazz into dreary 'dos with expertly crafted cuts, vibrant colors, and omega-oil-rich Aquage products. The 90- to 120-minute appointment with a Level 1 stylist begins with an investigation into current hair hopes. After reaching a verdict, the hair whisperer will apply complementary highlights (a $70 value) to flatter complexions and provide a good role model for graying ball caps. Follicles marinate in color while patrons marvel at feather-sketched walls inside the open salon. Scissor specialists express their gratitude to veteran split ends before severing ties and shaping locks into a pristine style (a $25 value). The salon is open seven days a week, and Groupon customers can upgrade to a Level 2 or Level 3 stylist by paying an additional fee or bringing a recommendation letter from George Washington’s powered wig. Call ahead for details.
Owner Lesli Grabill leads the talented team at Flhair in crafting ’dos that draw influence from contemporary styles. During haircuts for both men and women, experienced hands—including those of an American Crew–certified stylist—snip strands and build them into stylish new structures that match clients' mental blueprints. Colorists can imbue hair with a brand-new hue or add dimension with a smattering of highlights. Flhair also lightens facial burdens with waxing services in an effort to smooth out skin and effectively reduce drag before important headbanging competitions.
Motivated by a desire to provide a safe alternative to the damaging rays of tanning beds, the mother-daughter duo behind HealthiTan became certified spray-tan techs and began sheathing physiques with custom formulas that both darken and nourish the skin. As clients stand inside tent-like booths, the pair mists bodies with antioxidant-rich South Seas tanning solutions. The paraben-free elixirs come in seven shades, from a fair tint that suggests an occasional stroll in the sun to a dark hue that hints at a recent vacation to Venus. Techs spray bodies in a custom shade, accenting curves with the Star Quality Spa Treatment organic solution that is used in Hollywood and can last 7-10 days as long as clients don't fall into vats at the Wite-Out factory. Though the duo goes to lengths to provide a high level of service to all of their clients, VIP umbrella and heated-tent services are available for the client's convenience, and wedding parties or other groups are welcome. HealthiTan backs its convictions by regularly contributing to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Celestial Sands is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Celestial Sands operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
