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.
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.
Inside a salon painted in vibrant purple and blue hues, stylists help clients hone their style with Matrix and Bed Head products and a menu of hair-centric treatments. Uniquely shaped mirrors allow patrons to lecture mirror-selves on strict salon-cape dress codes, while stylists revamp manes using scissors, expertly blended color, and texturizing treatments. Salon Flow’s lobby stocks its retail section with a variety of unique jewelry from Manuela’s Creations, allowing patrons to accent new ‘dos with the glow of knowing 25% of the proceeds go to St. Jude’s Hospital.
Fully automatic AutoBronzer tanning booths give vocal instruction in English, Spanish, or French as they politely guide guests through five-minute tanning sessions. Stationed in private rooms, tanners strike upright sunbathing poses as four nozzles mist one of three shades onto physiques in even, streak-free coats. Each booth's open-air design speeds drying time, boosts comfort, and gives patrons' pet balloons plenty of room to roam.
