The stylists at Hair Emporium cut and color tresses, creating looks that are refined, bold, dramatic, or artfully sculpted into a sombrero—whatever suits the client's fancy. They use professional products from lines such as Moroccan Oil and NEVO, 100% vegan shampoos, and conditioning treatments that come in biodegradable packaging.
Fashion trends are always evolving. That's why the dedicated stylists of The Parlor Salon undergo extensive additional training with top design houses such as Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon, and Wella to keep their skills sharp and their repertoire diverse enough to meet the styling needs of any client. The salon harnesses Bumble and bumble products to keep hair smooth when styling it into a new ‘do or to recall fond styling-chair memories during complimentary bang trims between appointments. Many of the stylists bear training in cutting-edge treatments, such as Liscio Japanese retexturing and Platinum Seamless hair extensions, which use high-quality Remy cuticle hair to create faultless extensions that are undetectable to the eye, the touch, and the carnival's "Hair must be this long to ride" signs. Whether clients come in for a quick wax or a full day of styling, coloring, and makeup services, they're free to savor a bevy of complimentary refreshments.
With plush carpeting, decorative wall hangings, and cozy treatment rooms, Real Beauty feels more like a welcoming home than a spa. And that's just the way owner Parisa Zandi wants it. Here, she treats her clients to personable, private services that enhance looks while setting clients at ease. She evicts unwanted hair with waxing appointments, shrinks pores and zaps fine lines with microdermabrasions, and bronzes skin with spray tans that don't leave orange streaks behind. She also wields products from IMAGE skincare, which include ingredients that decrease signs of aging.
Total Derma Care helps its clients boost their confidence while feeling more healthy and revitalized, offering services that help improve anything from the enamel to the epidermis. Simple 15-minute applications of LED light render teeth shiny without pain or replacing teeth with metal parts, while micro-current facials boost circulation and elastic growth at the cellular level. Estheticians reduce the appearance of blemishes and fine lines using microcrystals or specially formulated glycolic peels, while Parafango body wraps remove toxins from the body and smooth unwanted cellulite.
Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
The Refuge's resident rejuvenator, Stephanie can cleanse and massage weary flesh-emoticons with thorough skin-polishing facials. For a treatment tailored to your skincare desires, the Refuge Signature Facial ($70) combines deep cleansing, exfoliation, possible extractions, and a stress-melting neck and shoulder massage. The Clear Complexion treatment ($75) delivers a one-two punch of deep enzymatic action and fruit acids topped with a snazzy anti-bacterial mask, transforming your face into a polished mirror that causes beautiful headaches if you try to look at it in a real mirror. Even dudes can look less like island castaways with the dapper-making GQ Men's Facial ($60), which double-cleanses, exfoliates, extracts (if needed), massages, and moisturizes sir-skin. In the process, evict dead, unwanted skin from your pores' apartment complex by adding a microdermabrasion ($25) to any facial.
