The royal-blue walls and matching patterned curtains of Glamour Beauty Salon and Day Spa lend the salon a vibrant atmosphere that's reflected in the attentive services performed by the staff. They cover all of the beauty bases from haircuts to aromatherapy massages and steam saunas. They also offer a variety of nailcare services, including intricate acrylic nails decorated in 3D flowers and designs.
Simply owning a spa was not enough for Jolie Day Spa founders Kelly Ozmon and Suzanne Bitz. Shortly after opening their first spa, armed with aesthetician's licenses and advanced certifications, the duo delved into research and chemistry, concocting their own line of nationally recognized clinical skincare products that incorporate botanicals from the coast of Hawaii, the south of France, and the invisible lakes of Mars.
Inside Jolie Day Spa, the owners' passions for high-quality products and attentive treatments intersect, as a staff of highly experienced aestheticians and cosmetologists pair Joli Visage products with facials and peels to help clients overcome signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and a tattoo of an American flag with only 48 stars on it. A retinue of bodycare services from licensed massage therapists and hair treatments round out the all-encompassing menu of beautifying treatments.
Inspired by the glamor of Hollywood, owner of Best At Beauty Enhancement (B.A.B.E.) KC Chavez strives to make each customer feel like a celebrity during customized skincare, waxing, and nail services. She combats blemishes, signs of aging, and paparazzi red eye with nine types of facials, nourishing skin with the nontoxic, botanical extracts and pure essential oils found in the paraben- and fragrance-free Bioelements line. Chavez uses formaldehyde-free CND Shellac polish to keep nails from chipping or oxidizing for up to two weeks.
Hair Loft's experienced salon artists enhance hairdos with a menagerie of cut and color services fueled by Paul Mitchell products. The precision cut kicks off as skilled hands wash expectant follicles in a cleansing shampoo treatment. A five-minute massage stimulates scalps as much as a tale of a legendary fountain of hats, and a wet cut trims down lengthy and rebellious hairs to sculpt coiffure personalized to the wishes of each patron. Banished water retreats at the behest of a blow dryer before a final dry cut frames faces by allowing the stylist to see what the finished hair masterpiece will look like in headshots and Play-Doh busts.
Light from a blown-glass chandelier refracts off gold-framed mirrors and brightens the azure walls of Tiffany Hair Studio & Skin Care, creating a lush setting for high-tech hair and skin therapies. Hair experts protect follicles with low-ammonia hair colors, moisture-rich conditioners, and thickening formulas, and stimulate growth using olive-oil rubs, laser treatments, and an inspirational Jeff Van Gundy slideshow. They also eliminate unwanted body hair with lasers, which can permanently reduce both coarse and fine hair on all types of skin.
The aestheticians further smooth skin with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and a plastic surgeon with 30 years of experience temporarily eradicates wrinkles with cosmetic injectables. A resident nutrition counselor helps balance diets to ensure newly evened-out complexions stay healthy.
All of the luxurious treatments are complemented by hot tea and homemade treats, as well as staffers who sit with clients to offer one-on-one consultations or practice the salon’s secret handshake.
