With a roster of stylists, massage therapists, aestheticians, and members of the ancient and still-thriving brotherhood of barbers, Temptor Salon aims to stake a claim at the cutting edge of style. The modern Paul Mitchell Focus salon houses stylists that dole out modern cuts for men and women, and therapists set guests at ease during massages customized to each tense back. For a more hands-off approach, tanning memberships are available.
GlowCo Tan transforms pale corporeal coats into their honey-brown alter egos with a full range of standup and lay-down tanning facilities as well as UV-free- airbrush tanning services. In just a few minutes, visitors attain a beach-suggestive hue, bronzing to golden perfection in the welcoming maw of a Level 1 lay-down bed. There’s no limit on the number of tans used per month, assuring that patrons can maintain their color day to day without conducting outdoor business luncheons in a bikini. Alternatively, SunFX custom airbrushing infuses skin with a healthy hue without resorting to UV rays. In 10–15 minutes, a trained tanning artist enlightens the epidermis by hand, leaving machines to do the less important work of washing clothes and rocking babies to sleep. A wealth of lotions from brands including Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty are on-hand to ensure maximum color during and after the session.
Melissa Johnson developed a passion for beauty in early childhood, when she cut and coiffed fashion-forward styles for her first clients—Barbie dolls. Now grown up, Johnson has gained expertise in hair services including cuts, coloring, hair feathers, and hair tinsel, the latter of which suggests the cheerfulness of Christmas more tastefully than a headband embroidered with a gift wish list. Since she also performs waxing, makeup application, and mani-pedi services, Johnson fits right in at the newly remodeled Salon Couture, a beauty haven with both plush white chairs set before bedroom-dresser-like styling stations and soft black recliners in private treatment rooms.
