At Color Me Green Salon, "green" is more than just a catchphrase or the favorite color of every traffic light ever. It's a decision to keep things healthy for clients and safe for the environment, and the stylists put it into practice by using products that are organic and free of hazardous ingredients such as ammonia, parabens, and sulfates. These organic products figure into haircuts, coloring, and facials that look stylish and keep the hair and skin healthy. Other services include body wraps, mani-pedis, and organic tattoos by an in-house artist.

With six years of experience, licensed aesthetician Valerie Telford loves to help her clients achieve beautiful skin by personalizing her services to the needs of her clients in order to achieve optimal results.

In the spirit of the season, Pampered Skin Care also offers a pumpkin enzyme peel, perfect for invigorating skin on a chilly autumn morning. In addition to skincare, clients can bronze their bodies with paraben-free spray tans or exfoliate and hydrate their body with seaweed body wraps.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Facial Impressions Permanent Cosmetics & Training simplifies the beautification process with a diverse array of permanent-makeup services.
