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.
Salon Par's tress tamers have been clipping, styling, and straightening magnificent manes into the most current representations of scalp décor since 1976. Brazilian Blowout Zero is a formaldehyde-free product that substitutes harmful chemicals with a plant-derived KeraSafe bonding system. Brazilian Blowout Zero deposits vital amino acids that form a blockade around hair shafts, vanquishing frizz and administering a rich creamy luster. Treated curls can remain straight for up to three months, and are bestowed with a shine blinding enough to block out enemy spy satellites. The process takes about 90 minutes, but clients are permitted to leave the salon and return when tresses are ready.
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 Blo Salon Studio, 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.
He works alongside people such as Devon Henderson, who has worked on independent films, and Amy Crouch, a hair and makeup artist who has also styled hair for movies, as well as for commercials, photo shoots, and fashion shows. These stylists and others perform everything from sun-kissed highlights to relaxers to keratin straightening treatments.
Over the course of approximately 90 minutes, your opposable knuckle sticks will be equipped with shiny new finger helmets worthy of a Costanza hand model. Put your hands and feet where a member of the skilled and licensed staff can see them, and you'll be rewarded with a soak and neat trimming of fingernails and toenails. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges. Cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition. The skilled 'curists will massage your feet with their hands and your hands with their feet, leaving your handlebars and kickstands feeling buttery and spry. A deliberate polishing finishes up your transformation from hand and foot abandon to extreme extremity envy. The pedicure also includes a foot scrub and hot towel wrap, a perfect companion for relaxing in the comfortable, spa-like atmosphere. Call to schedule an appointment with the professional cuticle coaches.
From the bottoms of your feet to the top of your head, Symmetry Salon shines a beautifying spotlight on every feature. Haircuts and coloring yield fresh new hairdos, while mani-pedis include beverages for clients to sip on as their digits are buffed, exfoliated, massaged, and polished. Aestheticians even complexions with European facials and massage therapists use peri-natal, deep-tissue, and Swedish massages to loosen gridlocked muscles.
