Uniquely Chic Salon acts as home base for three stylists, one of whom grabbed page space in The Knot wedding magazine for a sweeping updo. Before sessions with the trio, patrons pass time in an area that emulates a vintage bedroom with navy-blue walls and white dressers as weathered as Father Time's face. Stylists then open appointments by ascertaining clients' individual style before laying topcoats of Goldwell Color, KMS, or Aquage products on dull or uncooperative tendrils. Hardwood floors and brick styling stations augment the boutique space, which opens onto a patio with wrought-iron furniture perfect for lounging.
The experienced staff at Capelli Hair Design subdues, styles, and enriches weary, bullied manes with precise hands and products from J Beverly Hills and Dikson. During the 45–60 minute deep-conditioning package, clients consult with a stylist to determine which conditioner is best suited to smuggle shine, volume, and cake-encased nail files into the texture of hair. After deep conditioning infuses strands with moisturized bounce and shapeable form, follicles fall into line during a coif-conceiving haircut, style, and blow-dry. The 60–90 minute partial highlight package begins with a conversation between cutter and cuttee, during which a color and style is settled on through the desires of the client, the knowledge of the stylist, and the arrow of a Twister wheel. Pelts pop with character and youth after a partial highlight illuminates strands, after which a cut, style, and blow-dry sprout and shape the new-hued mop-top into a stylish, vibrant ’do.
The Smart Tan–certified staff at The Islands Tanning and Beach Shop helps to aesthetically burnish bodies with unlimited tanning packages and a Mystic Tan sunless spray-tanning booth. Customers can slip into a Level 1 bed at any point over 30 days to both acquire and touch up a newly polished shell, and may speak to the specialists on hand if they wish to upgrade to a Level 2 or 3 for an additional fee. Alternately, the private, fully automated Mymist sunless spray-tanning booth takes about one minute to coat physiques in an all-over bronze glow. The resulting tan can keep figures looking sun-touched for up to seven days, ensuring that the newly-tanned can flaunt their sheen at upcoming weddings, soirees, holiday partys, and Senate hearings.
Bobbie Salang has explored the science of bodywork from several anatomical angles. As a licensed massage therapist, nationally certified personal trainer, and holistic health coach, she channels 20 years of fitness experience into services at Sevenlakes Massage & Body Therapies. However, she and her accomplice Chrissy Excell—both members of the American Massage Therapy Association—aren't satisfied with stagnant resumés. They continue to augment their knowledge by attending courses whose credits exceed their licensing requirements, all for the sake of their business's professional and peaceful ambiance.
Bobbie and Chrissy hope to spark sustainable change in their clients' lifestyles, whether they are customizing a massage to thwart pain or offering dietary guidance to thwart rival coworkers from deep-frying your lunch while your back is turned. Bobbie's passion for Pilates fuels group classes and personal-training sessions, whose core-strengthening effects can complement her kneading treatments and benefit physiques from top to bottom.
