Under the salon’s contrasting tones of bubblegum and black licorice, the team at The Beauty Bar Salon & Boutique works to treat clients with a complete menu of salon services. Owner Tia Gunn leads the team while lending her expertise in the areas of coloring, cutting, styling, and applying extensions. In addition to providing hair services for both men and women, the specialists offer skincare services to cleanse and nourish pores, nail services to brighten hands, and waxing services to show dolphins the real masters of the sea.
At the tender age of 13, Patty Conrad picked up a pair of scissors and began snipping away at unwanted hair until a new 'do was born. That experience blossomed into a passion and career as a master barber/instructor and owner of T'Zers Hair Gallery. She oversees stylists equally adept at regular and razor cuts, highlights, and chemical straightening treatments. The staff also give attention to digits during mani-pedis that end with nails covered in the clients' choice of nail polish hue or emoticon stickers.
Dermea Laser Skin Care is not a spa. It’s not a salon. And it’s definitely not one of those places where they make mediocre burgers but people still go because the servers pretend to be rude to you. But it is the aesthetics branch of Get Well Clinics, which means it relies on medical-grade equipment and procedures to remove body hair and refresh the skin. One such piece of equipment is the LightSheer diode laser system, a popular machine that can remove hair from all six types of skin on the Fitzpatrick scale. Another is the microdermabrasion machine, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars, especially when it’s coupled with the alpha-hydroxy acids of the clinic’s glycolic peels.
Though they often whisk together bowls of liquid chocolate, scented jellies, and fresh lime juice, these professionals don't make desserts. They're nail techs, and they use such sweet ingredients to more effectively pamper appendages during manicures and pedicures at Harmony Nail Spa. For instance, during a jelly pedi, a foot soak made of light, fluffy jelly retains its heat longer than its watery counterparts, extending the soothing effect of the essential oils and aloe vera extracts contained within. Staff members also soothe bodies with hot- or cold-stone massages and smooth skin with waxing services.
Studio Villa Hair goes the extra mile for privacy. Each hairstylist has his or her own cozy chamber in which to craft face-flattering cuts and bedeck tresses with elegant high- and lowlights. Clients may also nix unflattering fuzz with a quick waxing session, or retreat to Villa’s accessories boutique to peruse its line of specialty handmade jewelry.
Tan USA bronzes bodies using five levels of UV tanning beds and smooth and even UV-free tanning options. A session in an Ultra, Turbo, or Mega bed darkens skeleton holders in 15 minutes using high-quality RUVA lamps. The tanning vessels provide enough light to achieve immediate results or peruse a history textbook about the Bronze Age. Patrons can sun-smooch their skin while eschewing UV with the spray-tanning technologies of the Mystic tanning booth, which allows for a customized browning in three distinct levels.
Joined by more than their salon’s name, stylists Jón and Alan have spent more than two decades refining their skills side by side. Today, the duo passes on their knowledge to the stylists on their team, teaching them the tricks of the trade as they cut, color, and add texture to hair. When they aren’t watching over their stylists or juggling combs dipped in barbicide and lit on fire, they check in on the spa’s technicians, who soothe their clients’ skin with resurfacing facials, chemical peels, and relaxing massages.
