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.
The experienced string pullers at I Browse and Eyebrows Threading eradicate unwanted hairs with gentle twists and tugs of 100% cotton thread. The ancient technique entraps and evacuates stray strands in the direction of the follicle, minimizing the risk of the unsightly cuts and irritation associated with machete-based methods of hair removal. Opt for an eyebrow-threading session to leave eye overhangs with a more defined arch and shape (an $11 value). Face havers can also opt to depilate their upper lips (a $6+ value) or chins (an $8+ value). Threaded areas can stay smooth for anywhere from two to eight human weeks, or 14–56 dog weeks.
Three independent aestheticians at Street Side Salon buff, polish, and style clients’ hair and nails, creating sleek new looks for all who enter. In a station designed to evoke the essence of a mini spa, Jessica Hentrich uses a decade of nailcare experience to pamper hands and feet. Weary feet can rest in a heated basin, or patrons can sink into an overstuffed chair.
On the other side of the salon, Debe Hentrich and Linda Hessling create face-framing hairstyles. An experienced cosmetologist and hair artist, owner Debe snips and colors strands, infusing them with high-quality products from Moroccanoil, Keratin Complex, and Pureology. Her healthy-hair program leaves manes looking lush, and her eye for style is evidenced by the salon’s overall appearance. Linda Hessling expresses her hair expertise by shaping layers and lengths to fit each individual’s face or to match their looks with photos of their pets.
