Perhaps it’s Polished Nails’ daffodil-yellow walls that make everyone inside so cheery, or perhaps it’s the staff’s warm banter with clients that infuses the salon with its sunny aura. Whatever its source, the lighthearted atmosphere within Polished Nails envelops guests as they unwind while receiving lavish nail services. The crew of licensed nail technicians buzzes about their manicure stations as they beautify fingers and nearby, soon-to-be-pedicured guests in cushy chairs dunk their feet into meticulously sanitized basins. Along with nail services ranging from gel manicures to artful nail designs, the staff also whisks away unwanted hair with waxing treatments that leave visages primed for close-ups and for fitting in better with one's dolphin friends.
Salon 463's team of seasoned aestheticians, nail technicians, and stylists work to gussy up patrons from the top of their heads to the tips of their toes via a host of lavish services. A symphony of snipping scissors and hair dryers accompanies each hair specialist during salon services ranging from color-boosting glazes to bridal updos. Aestheticians can revive faces exhausted from fielding the cheek pinches of passing grandmothers using a variety of rejuvenating skincare treatments. Nail services include anti-aging manicures, men's pedicures, and acrylic-nail repair to give hands and feet get a much-needed break.
At Sunfastic Tanning Resorts, clients don’t just get a tan—they get a dose of vitamin D or an infusion of antioxidants and pure botanicals. Each of the four levels of tanning beds pumps out 10,000 units of natural vitamin D, and lotions from Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty enhance tans and keep skin moisturized. The tanning resort also provides airbrush tanning using a custom-blended natural solution made with antioxidants, pure botanicals, and sweat from Solaro, the man who runs the sun. Thirty-minute teeth-whitening sessions keep teeth from acquiring the same bronze shade that skin has. The treatment's light activator, which shines on the FDA-approved hydrogen-peroxide gel to release its whitening power, can be adjusted for people with sensitive teeth.
The giving and experienced staff at Salon Zen—including specialists in ethnic hair and precision cuts—beautify clients with personalized services for the hair, body, and skin. The team carefully selects hard-to-find boutique products such as the European Keune color line and blonde highlights extracted from the sun's old flare extensions. The salon's certified massage therapist relaxes bodies with techniques ranging from the sweeping strokes of Hawaiian lomi lomi to the firm pressure point focus of Japanese shiatsu.
Several of the stylists at Elevations Hair tally more than 20 years each in the industry, but that doesn't mean they've grown complacent. Instead, they continue to stay abreast of the latest trends by upholding the salon-wide allegiance to continuing education. This attitude explains how the salon can specialize in such modern techniques as keratin straightening treatments, feather extensions, and even men’s hair camouflaging, which disguises gray hairs and silver band-aids with subtle infusions of color. The salon's other hair-tinting services include highlights that make use of Redken and Wella color products.
Sunlight streaming through the window of Essenza Day Spa casts a glow on the spa's glossy contemporary décor. There, technicians rejuvenate clients' faces with five types of holistic facials and seven kinds of massage, including herbal body scrubs and therapies designed to relax oncology patients. Essenza Day Spa also boasts skilled spray-tanning specialists who custom-tan clients using 30 different shades of Infinity Sun solutions for an even, natural-looking tan that makes clients look like they spent the day at the beach or a week vacationing on Mars.
