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 Spa's vintage exterior conceals a three-floor haven for modern beauty services. Inside, at mirrored stations, stylists specialize in color correction, Brazilian blowouts, waxing, and bridal services, prepping the hair and nails of the betrothed with OPI polishes and Difiaba and Moroccanoil conditioners. 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.
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.
Ala Mode Hair Studio's name is fitting, given that its decor evokes a luscious dessert. Vanilla white walls complement caramel-hued ceilings and chocolate wood accents. The cherry on top is Ani Davytan, who transform strands with flattering layers and confident color highlights. Clients may also solicit Ani for an invigorating tea-tree treatment, which can renovate hair damaged by upkeep or low-flying helicopters.
At Sun Spa traditional UV beds and automated spray booths deliver bronzed glows. The spa's friendly consultants help clients choose the right equipment for their skin type, whether they are experienced sunbathers or coming out of hibernation for the first time in 10 years. To complement tanning services, the studio slims bodies with infrared body wraps and fights fine lines and age spots with UV-free red-light facials.
The aestheticians at Orchid Skin Care keep clients at their most beautiful with personalized services for the whole body. Using exclusively Yon-Ka skincare products, the staffers regenerate faces with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion treatments backed by nourishing botanicals. Meanwhile, eyelash extensions and permanent makeup enhance facial features without the hassle of morning cosmetics routines. The experts also melt tension through aroma-infused massages and wraps, and spray tanning imbues skin with a UV-free bronze glow to help prepare for trips to the beach or attempts to infiltrate the Olympics as a third-place medal.
