Gilded mirrors and ornate cabinets directly face the stylists as they spritz over newly crafted hairdos. Beyond custom cuts and colors, they can improve strand manageability with keratin smoothing treatments and accent tresses with feather extensions. Staffers also aim below the permanent top hat with golden airbrush tans or shellac and traditional nail polishes.

Step inside Salon 1550 to be enveloped in a vivacious lime-green glow and showered with attentive service. The modern, upscale salon is dressed to the nines in cushy amenities, including cozy black salon chairs, large flat-screen TVs, and slick, solid flooring that never opens to a netherlake of shark-infested lava without at least two weeks notice. During your visit, one of the salon's skilled, professional wax-wielders will swiftly evict rogue whiskers from your upper lip ($16) and lower forehead ($16 for an eyebrow wax), leaving behind only the strands that complement your features and speak fluent French. With waxing, you avoid time-consuming tweezing and painful razor-related cuts. Plus, hairs don’t grow back for two to six weeks, making it more effective than fire or wishing.
Clients at Southern Rays take control of their skin shades by using customizable UV- and sunless-tanning systems. Beds and booths come in six levels of UV intensity (up to a $25 value/session) so that clients can gradually prepare for the day when humans migrate to the sun. The Mystic Tan HD system (a $30 value/session) applies spritzings of UV-free tanning solution in the privacy of an individual chamber, and airbrush tanning paints pelts in each client’s most suitable shade. Southern Rays’ knowledgeable staff is always on hand to answer questions, provide tanning tips, and console useless sunbeams. Check the equipment page to see which services are offered at which locations.
