Jane Kim spent hundreds of dollars on products that promised to erase wrinkles and smooth skin, but none of them worked. She finally noticed a positive change in her skin when she began using all-natural, paraben-free products. At Simply Flawless by J, she shares her knowledge of these products during makeup lessons and applications for everyday wear or special occasions and mixes up custom liquid or mineral powder foundation to match each client's skin tone.
Owning a tanning salon in Hawaii means having to compete with miles and miles of free coastal sunshine. That’s why the owners of No Tan Lines, Alysin and Lyssa, offer much more than tanning services; they want to give each client their personal attention through other beauty-bolstering treatments, including red-light-therapy. Before each age-defying session, they consult with clients on their desires, whether it’s to vanquish acne bacteria, firm up wrinkles, or improve muscle stiffness. Between services they offer clients beverages.
When they are not turning back the clock for clients, they gear their tanning services to provide the comfort and convenience not available on the beach. Each of the three levels of beds come equipped with fans to keep clients cool throughout the 12-to 20-minute sessions. Face lamps in all three types of bed get faces glowing with energy specifically calibrated for facial skin to prevent the reddening that often occurs outdoors due to the sun’s intense rays or dive-bombing seagulls.
At J Boutique Salon & Spa, the stylists cut, color, and coif locks with the mindset that beautiful hair builds confidence, and that each guest should leave with just that—beautiful, confident-inspiring tresses. In addition to hair services, the staff helps beautify clients with facials, makeup, waxing, and nailcare.
Owner Connie Chang and the team at Hawaii Kai Salon & Day Spa LLC pamper their clients from head to toe with a full menu of hair, skin, and body treatments. They use organic color to imbue tresses with stylish hues untainted by ammonia hydroxide or crude oil, whereas Korean straightening perms diffuse frizz. Waxing treatments whisk unwanted hair from nearly any area of the anatomy and massages evict tension from muscles and minds.
The experts at Body Wraps By The Sea rely on Suddenly Slender–brand wraps, which use elastic bandages and a nondehydrating mineral solution that can contribute to a visually slimmer appearance and tighter skin. They are so confident that their clients will appear at least 6 inches slimmer for women and 4 inches slimmer for men that they guarantee each treatment. In addition to the wraps, they further detoxify bodies with ionic foot cleanses and supply a variety of weight-loss products.
