The 10 tanning beds at The Perfect Tanning Salon bronze bodies with four levels of UV rays seven days a week. Before customers slip into their illumination chambers, they can discover new ways to protect their eyes and skin by perusing the tanning lotions and goggles that line the salon's mint-green walls. For a sun-kissed glow without the heat, staffers can airbrush epidermises by hand, which helps achieve a more subtle tan than riding through the painting section of a Mr. Potato Head assembly line.
At Custom Complexions Skincare, no two facials are exactly alike because no two faces are exactly alike. Aestheticians customize each with Bioelements skincare products and essential oils suited to the client’s specific skin type. Some facials are even designed to treat common concerns—acne and aging or sensitive skin are frequent complaints—or uncommon ones, such as a tree frog stuck to your forehead. Plus, any treatment can be modified with microdermabrasion or chemical peels for enhanced skin-smoothing results.
Using only a fine piece of cotton fiber, the aestheticians at Short PumpThreading perform their specialty service, the Eastern art of threading. The filament effectively dethrones strands at the follicular level, though its delicate touch makes it a good fit for those with sensitive skin or users of Retin-A and Accutane. Regular eyebrow-threading sessions encourage new strands to grow wispier over time, resulting in fewer worries over facial maintenance and inevitable disappointment from fuzzy caterpillars in search of their kin. For all-over hair removal, organic waxing services pare down body hair on both women and men.
True to its name, Montage Facials dispenses a montage of eight soothing facial treatments fit for every skin concern. Aestheticians conjure up deep relaxation as they paint faces with enzyme-packed products and light chemical peels to gently exfoliate and renew cells or treat mature skin to Dermalogica Age Smart products. The specialists help teens fight battles against acne and crabby math teachers with a specialized adolescent facial and a discussion about proper skincare and the importance of always showing your work on tests. Once skin is refreshed and replenished, clients can scoot into the waxing parlor and bid adieu to hair on any part of the body.
Beneath the salmon-hued arches of Kim Nails, licensed technicians create a chorus of purring emery boards. They swathe fingers in no-chip lacquers from OPI and Gelish and wield moisturizing serums crafted from baobab trees. Tucked away in a private room, aestheticians de-fuzz physiques with wax, which otherwise would just be used to seal a king’s prank letters.
