SuperNatural Hair revamps tresses with flattering layers and Redken color highlights, but that's just a single strand in the salon's ample coiffure. After an invigorating deep-conditioning treatment, skilled aestheticians can outfit fingertips with glitter polish or remove unflattering fuzz from brows during a private waxing session. The salon also offers a vibrant array of hair extensions available in natural hues or accent colors such as neon pink, turquoise, and camouflage.
At Premier Cuts Plus, the staff's primary goal is to help clients feel their best from the moment they pass through the arched stone entryway that separates the reception desk from the main salon. Soft music and sounds from a trickling fountain collide harmoniously with the low din created by the studio's stylists, aestheticians, nail technicians, and opera-trained massage therapists as they dole out a full spectrum of treatments designed to keep hair, skin, nails, and muscles in peak form. Floor-to-ceiling columns partition each hairstyling station, providing privacy for the jet-black chairs and shy shampoo bowls that assist stylists as they deftly trim, sculpt, and color strands with products by Pureology and Murad. All guests enjoy complimentary beverages with their treatments, though those planning to linger longer can choose to enjoy the light lunch included in several spa packages or travel with their own hibachi chef.
Upon entering The Image Creator Salon & Day Spa, clients are greeted by 17 seasoned stylists, each with at least five years of experience. As they cut and color hair, two certified massage therapists attempt to reduce clients’ anxiety with customized massages. Spa packages combine hair, nail, and body treatments to rejuvenate clients without fairy godmothers. After treatments, visitors can peruse a collection of products from brands such as Matrix Biolage, Crew, and Aveda to maintain their new looks at home.
At LifeSpa Salon—an oasis of calm inside a bustling workout center—an experienced stylist kicks off split-end snipping with a consultation to personalize trims. Patrons with overgrown mops may opt for the standalone haircut, which scrubs heads with a thorough shampoo before a meeting with a phalanx of humming scissors. In the men’s cut, a hot-towel treatment ensues, easing tension and opening pores with layers of heated terry cloth. Skilled tendril wranglers style women’s coiffures into chic masterpieces that grant the sleek confidence to attend a porpoise’s cocktail party.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
Walking away from West Coast Hair after hair-extension appointments, patrons can toss silky, newly lengthened manes that would have otherwise taken years to grow. At locations in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, stylists apply the extensions using a strand-by-strand technique and fusion-free bonds without damaging glue or chemicals. With proper maintenance, elongated tresses can last up to six months.
