Tiffany Pardue is a waxing specialist who rids unwanted body hair at Elite Salon-Spa-Studio. Her skilled hands carefully remove patches of hair from sensitive bikini areas. At the salon and spa, customers also will find services such as haircuts, manicures, massages, and facial treatments.
Natural light pours through the salon’s large front windows onto polished wood floors and walls decorated with intricate paisley designs like blooming flowers. Amid these modern accents, skilled stylists sculpt sleek layers and manufacture bold highlights to frame the face. Clients may also solicit Total Image for a waxing session, colorful mani-pedi, or a brief lounge in one of several high-tech solar tanning beds.
After a decade-long stint in law enforcement, Anne E. Currie returned to the profession she is most passionate about: nailcare. Anne came full circle in 2011, when she opened Nailtoepia after having started her career as a nail technician in 1991. A creative soul, Anne specializes in colored acrylics, custom nail art, and glitter nails that double as disco balls for hamster nightclubs. Along with nail enhancements, she offers a full menu of nailcare services that range from Shellac mani-pedis to men's nailcare at her two locations in Greenfield and Morristown.
The specialists at each of Bronze Bay Tanning Center's locations craft custom plans that emphasize building a tan while avoiding burns. They work to help those new to UV beds acquire a base tan and aid seasoned bronzers in reaching new shades. Within colorfully walled rooms, warm-skinned patrons slip out from UltraSun and SunScape units, thankful that the sun is now only used to give cowboys a cool way to leave parties. Air conditioners in UltraSun TurboPower 25000 S units pour out cool air, and the SunScape SS755 produces an even, all-over tan with the aid of frosted acrylic surfaces. At some shop locations, clients foster summer glows with tanning lotions from brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
Christine Smith's aesthetics training is still fresh in her mind: she graduated from Paul Mitchell The School less than a year ago. Using her adept hands and a range of Redken products, she trims, styles, and conditions her clients' hair to create shapes more varied than the results of a circle-drawing contest. In addition to her signature highlights, she beautifies tresses with single-process color.
Christine tends to her clients inside the calming atmosphere of Salon D'va, where fellow beauty experts perform services ranging from spa mani-pedis to reflexology to aromatherapy massages.
