Natural light pours through the salon's large front windows onto walls painted the deep blue-green of a tropical island. Amidst this relaxing ambiance, skilled stylists snip sharp scissor cuts and bedeck tresses with flattering highlights. Formaldehyde-free conditioning treatments are also available to reduce frizz for an easier morning routine. Guests may also request a gel manicure or receive a sun-kissed look without the UV rays via a spray-tan session.
The reflections of fluorescent lights sparkle off glossy floors at Electric Sun Tanning Salons, but the vibrant interior is not the space's most notable use of light. The salon boasts a fleet of tanning beds with five different levels of bronzing intensity for tanners of all complexions. For a UV-free alternative, guests can enter the standup booth of the VersaSpa spray-tanning system, which coats bodies in an even, natural-looking tan.
All salon service providers are not created equal. That's why Drew James Aveda Salon Spa enlists only Aveda Institute graduates, putting them through an advanced training program before making them work their way up a three-tier ranking system. This emphasis on high-quality staff—coupled with an exclusive selection of plant-based Aveda products—lures clients in for services ranging from basic haircuts to thermal straightening to rosemary-mint body wraps. The salon and spa also adds special touches to many of its treatments, including a complimentary stress-relieving scalp treatment and makeup touchup with each hair service. Both locations feature a wall of mirrors and trendy styling chairs, as well as Aveda tea for clients to sip on while thumbing through style portfolios or folding magazines into swans somehow.
