When stylist Kristen Jones joined the team at Changes Hair Design, her enthusiasm for her work was palpable. "Keeping my clients looking effortlessly amazing is my goal,” she says. Educating clients on at-home maintenance is also a priority for the six-year veteran stylist—she’s always happy to give styling tips or product recommendations for keeping hair healthy and out of the jam jar.
The CIMA Aesthetics doctors and certified aestheticians apply a medical perspective and commensurately advanced technology to each of their cosmetic procedures. During microdermabrasion treatments, specialized crystals skim and frolic across facial contours, stripping away dead skin and haphazardly placed "For Rent" fliers until your mug is pinchably soft and smooth. The safe scrubbers also refurbish oft-overlooked areas under the eyes and near the lips. After three treatments, the newly supple cells exhibit fewer wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and scream lines from overdramatic declarations of "No."
After 20 years working under the name Capelli Oggi, the team at the newly minted Encore Salon decided it was time to reinvent, rename, and remodel the entire space. The beauty experts continue to provide top-notch haircare, waxing, and nail services in their reimagined salon, using a consultative approach that facilitates a fruitful back-and-forth and allows them to craft styles based on each client’s vision and wig collection. In addition to the talented team of beautifiers, the facility houses an impressive array of salon products for purchase and also boasts a dedicated mani-pedi room for nail treatments.
Styles Hair Studio’s talented stylists snip, shape, and wax hairs in various anatomical habitats with a full repertoire of salon services. A men's haircut ($25+) or a women’s cut and style ($35+) can transform a ho-hum hairdo into a follicular work of art, and a deep-conditioning treatment ($20+) infuses dehydrated locks with as much moisture as an upstream swim through a salmon's gene pool. In addition, every shampoo administered at Styles Hair Studio chases away tension and nesting robins with a relaxing scalp massage. Alternatively, aestheticians’ nimble fingers can stray from clients’ noggins to trim and polish nails during a pedicure ($50+) or upkeep bathing-suit etiquette with a bikini wax ($32). Before any salon service, a complimentary cup of coffee energizes clients’ neural search engines more effectively than receiving a photo of Waldo’s secret beach hideout.
The blow-dry bar at Salon Karma wrangles thick, long, curly, and straight hair into silky-smooth finishes using nothing more than water, shampoo, a blow-dryer, and a brush. The staff also works with any hair type during cuts and coloring treatments and offers nailcare and tanning services. In addition, they take their show on the road with on-set hairstyling for films, photo shoots, and trendy magazines.
High-tech tanning equipment and an amiable and knowledgeable staff greet clients at VIP Tanning, a go-to indoor-tanning emporium in business more than 20 years. Here, customers can refill their vitamin D reserves from UV beds or standup booths, or bask in a nonstreaking, UV-free sunless tan from the Mystic Tan system.
