Vickie Barger transforms hairstyles from her styling chair, taking flat hair to fuller heights and adding dimension or volume to lackluster hairdos. Barger was drawn to the salon thanks to its "wonderful atmosphere with professional stylists and an awesome boss." The salon's stylists possess a wealth of beauty-industry experience, including owner Barry Menser's 30 years behind the chair, and each employee practices their own specialty. Barger's specialty is color, and she often sweeps brushes saturated with custom-mixed Matrix, J Beverly Hills, and Schwarzkopf hues through monochromatic strands after meeting with clients in a thorough consultation and tucking encouraging notes inside their headbands. As hair is reborn in new, more fashionable formations, clients can eye the salon's serene images of boats and ballet and sip complimentary cups of tea, cocoa, and soda.
The saying "If you want something done right, do it yourself" rings true for for the staff at Sarvana Beauty—who, unsatisfied with current serums on the market, decided to create their own line of skincare. Sarvana Mantra combines botanical ingredients with the latest skincare technology, resulting in products that both nourish and improve complexions. These serums may be used in tandem with any number of high-tech services, from microdermabrasions to collagen-boosting ultrasonic treatments. Aestheticians also turn their hand to enhancing natural beauty with eyebrow threading, makeup applications, and henna tattoos. The beauty spa has several convenient locations to choose from, all of which maintain a high level of pampering.
Sundays Blue Box Tanning Resort's fleet of European-imported tanning equipment polishes pallid epidermal canvases into glowing, copper sculptures. Sun Angel photoelectric sensors analyze guests' skin tones to calculate the optimal temperature and time needed to bronze bodily temples without overbaking them. A bouquet of herbal body washes and creamy lotions from Jordan Rae, Signature, and Ed Hardy enhance clients' natural-looking copper hues. In addition to tanning services, Sundays’ team helps guests lose inches and ease pain with PhysEdge Fit infrared body wraps. The 60-minute wraps work in tandem with the Fit Booster mineral spray to burn up to 1400 calories, aiming to simulate the effects of a six- to nine-mile run while guests relax in a private room equipped with a flat-screen TV. Early morning and evening hours at all of Sundays' sixteen locations ensure guests will never again be mistaken for a scared polar bear.

At Nail Tech and More, nail-art specialists Dawn, Kandi, and Khym beautify digits with ornate embellishments ranging from Fimo decals to spinning beads. Swarovski crystals, Mylar, and glitter accents set nails a-sparkle, and 3-D designs and junk-nail options turn them into ornate, miniature sculptures. Technicians can even customize nail shape: stiletto nails taper off into fierce points, and corkscrew nails swirl off fingertips and into inconveniently stuck wine corks.
The trio also provides more traditional nailcare services. Manicures spoil hands and feet with treatments such as melted paraffin, hot stones, warm towels, and massages, and acrylic nails and Shellac gel polishes proffer long-lasting color. Alternatively, spray tans and waxing sessions pamper bodies all over.
