At Sunlight Beauty, nails don’t have to scratch their way into the spotlight—they are the one and only focus for the team of nail technicians. That focus means they execute meticulous manicures and pedicures with gel, Shellac, and basic polishes and include additional treatments such as sugar scrubs to exfoliate and soften hands and feet. They also affix acrylic nails to digits and enhance individuality with custom nail art.
As a member of the styling team at Salon Par, Stephanie B. takes the time to listen to her clients before pointing them toward specific haircuts or color treatments. She's always honest and helpful with her suggestions, but her personal specialty lies in keratin treatments that rely on Brazilian Blowout's award-winning formulas. These semi-permanent treatments relax curls to make hair more manageable than a crossword puzzle in which every clue relates to an intimate detail about your life.
With a complimentary glass of wine in hand, Innovations Salon & Spa’s guests settle in to enjoy one of the many beautifying services that salon owner Donna has perfected over 11 years in business and two decades in the industry. Donna and her staff of 15 talented professionals specialize in hairstyling services that range from traditional cuts and coloring to innovative keratin straightening treatments that eliminate frizz and tame unmanageable curls. They wield L'oreal products; the infusions of antioxidants, macadamia-nut oil, and wheat protein in these professional formulas fortify each strand with enough strength to bench-press a bobby pin.
The scents of peppermint, lavender, chamomile, and eucalyptus fill the air in the spa, where therapists soothe muscles and senses alike during aromatherapy massages. Nearby, aestheticians exfoliate and refresh aging complexions with Bioelements products, remove unwanted hair with swipes of warm wax, and apply makeup to the faces of aspiring prom queens and identity thieves.
Inside an electric pink studio, a team of aestheticians help clients look and feel their best with a full menu of waxing treatments and beauty services. Aestheticians carefully trim and polish nails with nail polish or gel polish. The savvy stylists of The Wax Pot can also perform full-face makeup applications, prepping clients for nights out on the town or a meet-and-greet with a celebrity comptroller.
During brow and Brazilian-waxes, brows and bikini areas can be shaped into tasteful shapes with quick swipes of cloth strips.
It's not often you can tell people you've gotten your hair done by someone who has worked in Hollywood and actually mean someone who has worked in the movie business, as opposed to someone from Hollywood, Florida. But if you visit Robert McCain at Lady Luck Hair Parlour, you certainly can. He was the hair-department coordinator for the movie Fling, and even landed some small parts as an actor. Plus, he's lent his skills to the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants, and he provides wigs to several Kansas City theater productions and the odd hairless cat every now and again.
