Soleil Beauty Salon founder and aesthetician Alina Karoyan draws on 25-years of experience and a background in biology. She named her salon Soleil?which means "sun"?as a nod toward the star's nourishing and beautifying properties. It should come as no surprise, then, that one of the salon's most popular services is tanning, with options that include cutting-edge tanning booths and airbrush tans that utilize natural ingredients such as DHA and Apollo's tears. Other beauty services range from acne and anti-aging treatments to herbal body wraps and makeup services, and each one is performed using top-of-the-line products hand-selected by Alina after years of extensive research and practice.
Along the quaint, well-preserved streets of Kenneth Village, Ariada Salon and Spa's vintage exterior conceals a three-floor haven for modern beauty services. Inside, at mirrored stations, stylists specialize in hair coloring, Brazilian blowouts, haircuts, and styling, prepping the hair and nails of guests with OPI polishes and Seven Luxury Hair Care and Moroccanoil conditioners. Body and facial waxing services are also available. An onsite boutique equips clients with Witchy Poo Lotions & Potions and True Apothecary Candles, which can be combined at home to amplify a relaxing bath or invoke the beautifying intervention of Venus. The in-store boutique sells cosmetics and candles in addition to hair- and body-care products.
Skin Deep Studio & Salon's staff analyzes skin to create personalized skincare plans and nutritional diets during complimentary consultations. Personalized regimens allow clients to follow plans that address their skin's unique needs, helping them meet their epidermal goals, such as having clearer skin or skin that glows purple when the Baltimore Ravens are on television. The staff offers a full menu of skincare treatments, including deep-cleaning facials, acne treatments, microdermabrasions, and chemical peels. Along with providing skincare, staffers relax muscles with massage therapy, apply permanent makeup, and remove hair with waxing services.
Ano and Rumina, Hairspray Salon?s fashion-forward co-owners, have worked their way up to the forefront of the hair styling world. Ano boasts 27 years of experience and a degree from Vidal Sassoon, while Rumina is a Schwarzkopf Professional Ambassador, who started in the hair styling world at the age of 17 and now has 10 years of experience under her styling belt. Together they lead a team of expert stylists with specialties that include working with long and curly hair to color and highlights. They perform services under high ceilings at their robin?s egg-blue salon, snipping hair to flowing layers or straightening frizz with blowout treatments and Bumble and bumble products. And when not styling hair for clients, the stylists craft traffic-stopping updos for models who strut down the runway at wedding dresses shows and local airports.
Clients come to Perfect Tan for options—they can bronze their bodies with a Mystic tan, an airbrush tan, or five tanning beds. The sophisticated beds include such amenities as open-air design, contoured mattresses, and music players. Developing a tan in the beds generally takes about 10 to 20 minutes, or the legal minimum length of a conversation with an aunt you haven’t seen all year.
At Sune Beauty, the feeling of indulgence begins before you even set foot in one of their treatment rooms. Within the calming sky-blue walls of the reception area guests nibble on refreshments, which have been known to include anything from cookies to fresh fruit. Once it's time for their service, clients are escorted to a private spa room, where aestheticians administer a dozen specialized facials alongside complimentary hand massages that ensure palms don't cover faces out of jealousy. Those seeking acne relief can get a clarifying facial with a blend of enzymes and sulfur, and those in need of moisture can try a skin quench hydrating facial with aloe vera and rose hip oil. There are a few anti-aging treatments, including a glycolic refining facial that deeply exfoliates skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Many of the facials use enzyme-based Epicuren products, as do add-ons such as oil-based scalp treatments.
