Stylist and owner Kimberly Heeb helms Salon on the Avenue, a full service salon and spa that delivers treatments for body, hair, and skin. Standing behind black leather chairs and broad mirrors, stylists set to work cropping, coloring, and conditioning locks, while nail specialists perform digit upkeep across the salon. Inside the spa’s cozy private quarters, clients can indulge in skin-clarifying facials or massages that release tension more than kneading a stress ball into a fine powder.
Inside Extreme Sun Capsule, customers can easily get a sun-kissed glow in UV tanning beds that span multiple levels of intensity, including 15-minute magnum beds. Unlike low-pressure tanning beds, which require 10-15 visits for a base tan, high-pressure beds save time by only requiring 3-4 sessions that last approximately 12 minutes each. The 360-degree UVA high-pressure bulbs used in each bed's open design also help to decrease the risk of burn in a comfortable space. The salon offers spray tanning, too, in Mystic Tan booths that deliver a custom glow in minutes. After sessions, a cornucopia of lotions helps customers prolong the life of their tan.
More than 60 skin and beauty treatments fill the menu at Advanced Body Care, causing visitors to pause as they consider the best way to beautify their hair, skin, and nails. The full-service salon and spa’s staff helps out with consultations that take into account personalities and lifestyle habits to match guests with the treatments right for them.
Lively chatter fills the air in the salon, where stylists battle frizz, fly-away hair, and coiled snakes with CHI and keratin straightening treatments before coloring strands with Goldwell and J Beverly Hills dyes. Facial skin perks up after a nonsurgical face-lift or a custom facial, the latter of which can be enhanced with add-ons that include glycolic peels and an eye-contour treatment. For more than 15 years, Advanced Body Care’s massage therapists have loosened tense muscles with therapeutic massages; today, they continue to draw on their wealth of experience to soothe bodies in quiet treatment rooms.
Total Tan offers all-season solutions for transforming dull dermises into blissfully sun-kissed skin suits. For traditional bed and booth tanning, choose from a radiant array of artificial, cleanly sun pods to build your glow from palest amber to Midas-pawed gold. Or heat-shy coloration seekers may prefer UV-free Mystic spray tanning, which blankets the body in a fine mist to achieve effortless bronzing.
The skilled stylists, therapists, and nail techs at Head 2 Toez Salon & Spa mollycoddle clients with a wide range of beautifying services. Swedish- and hot-stone-massage sessions evict tension from bodies, while nearby staffers deftly shape and color coifs. Spa parties top the list of the shop's specialties, with groups of friends or family soaking in a day full of pampering or re-enacting famous high-noon duels with blow dryers inside an earth-toned spa marked by plush chairs and burbling porcelain fountains.
