The stylists at Trahvae Freraire Studio don't do haircuts. Rather, they specialize in precision "hair sculptures," along with an array of other color and styling services designed to unlock each mane’s hidden potential. The team performs Keratin Complex treatments that turn hair from frizzy to sleek, and nourishes damaged strands with custom conditioning treatments that leave hair less likely to eat in its sleep. Guests sip cocktails while talented hair artists soothe their scalps with acupressure massage and then go to work making locks more manageable with high-end products from brands such as Mizani and Aquage.
The studio is located in the historic Tone Mansion, where a sparkling chandelier and gold-framed mirrors give the space an elegant, classic vibe, and a fireplace makes an ideal place to swap scary stories about feathered bangs. In addition to making the world a more beautiful place one head at a time, the caring crew at Trahvae Freraire Studio has also participated in local charity events, where they donated services to benefit families in need.

Sometimes a trip to the spa is an excuse to spend some relaxing time by yourself, but it can also be a great excuse to bond with friends and loved ones. Top Nails West Des Moines knows that?it's why the spa recently expanded to accommodate 20 manicure stations and a whopping 27 pedicure stations in order to welcome groups of all sizes. While customers chit-chat, nail technicians massage hands with a cooling gel and paint tips with regular or chip-resistant gel polish. At the pedicure thrones, they drop refreshing lemon slices into foot baths and slough off dry skin with sugar scrubs; for an extra indulgent treatment, they can add a hot stone massage to soothe feet tired from walking all day and tap dancing all night. Meanwhile, in a more private area of the salon, waxing specialists remove unwanted hair from the face and body, while massage therapists knead tension that has built up during the week.
Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients’ tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.
The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin’s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios’s chariot within 46 seconds.
