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.
Bliss Hair Studio's team of seasoned stylists deftly performs a range of coif-centric services inside the bright, warm-toned space. The salon's full range of strand stylings run the gamut, from basic cuts, colors, and blowouts to dramatic hair extensions, and appearances by the frizz-busting vigilante, keratin.
The nail technicians slather their clients’ hands and feet with raspberry scrub, green tea body mud, and lemons during manicures at pedicures. The beauty pros also rub a sea salt body scrub across pelts for full body softening and decorate fuzzy chins, legs, and arms with warm wax before swiftly evicting unwanted hairs.
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.
Dr. Hooshang Tabibian helms a staff of trained and registered nurses and doctors who beautify clients with an extensive list of med-spa services, many of which call upon FDA?approved lasers. They rejuvenate faces with laser treatments geared toward reducing wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and acne, and target bodies to remove tattoos, spider veins, and unwanted hair. They also use the power of the beam to whiten teeth without causing extra sensitivity.
Though, lasers aren?t the only tools the staff uses to achieve desirable results. They inject facial muscles with Botox to reduce the activity that causes wrinkles, and work to reduce fine lines with medical-grade chemical peels. They also find their hands helpful, as they relieve tension with full-body massages that are relaxing enough to make you fall asleep and dream of a pack of puppies romping on your back.
