Sunlight spills through Tei Salon's ornate, arched windows to illuminate stations where stylists work to restore each head of hair to a healthier texture and hue using nothing but their shears and keen aesthetic eyes. Well, not exactly nothing. The stylists also rely on a stock of haircare products from Bumble and bumble and L'Oréal Professional Series Expert, all of which are potent enough to nourish, smooth, and give hair the ability to swish over shoulders in cinematic slow motion. The salon, tucked within the Chestnut Village Shoppes, connects to its sister spa, where Tei Salon's Dermalogica-certified aesthetician focuses on curing skin of its every ill, from rejuvenating mature skin to purifying acned complexions to defuzzing bodies during specialized facials and a full complement of waxing services.
Customers of OrTanic Sun Spa emerge from private rooms with skin glowing like the sun's lips. The staff consults with clients ahead of time, taking stock of skin type, current skin color, and target shade, then guides them to the level of tanning that will fit their needs. UV-tanning sessions take place in stand-up or lie-down chambers—available in four different intensity levels—which tan skin more effectively than a nap on a giant spotlight. For UV-free tanning, the staff mists skin with the Bronze Biologic airbrush solution, made from purified water and tanning elements derived from plant sources.
