Soleil Beauty Salon founder and aesthetician Alina Karoyan draws on 25-years of experience and a background in biology. She named her salon Soleil?which means "sun"?as a nod toward the star's nourishing and beautifying properties. It should come as no surprise, then, that one of the salon's most popular services is tanning, with options that include cutting-edge tanning booths and airbrush tans that utilize natural ingredients such as DHA and Apollo's tears. Other beauty services range from acne and anti-aging treatments to herbal body wraps and makeup services, and each one is performed using top-of-the-line products hand-selected by Alina after years of extensive research and practice.

Kym Nicole has been a beauty guru since she was a kid, styling her dolls' hair and experimenting with her mother's makeup. She later became the go-to girl among friends for the latest beauty trends, so a cosmetology license was a logical next step. As Kym has advanced her talent with makeup and hair, she's moved far from her first doll clients, working with stars such as Kerry Washington and on projects for BET, VH1, and many more big names.
At Kym Nicole Beauty, she treats every client like a star, providing makeup services that include makeovers, eyebrow shaping, tattoo coverage, and much more. Custom coloring, weaving, relaxers, and other hair services are also available.
Dividing The Spa's chocolate-brown wood floors are multiple massage alcoves, each separated by a thin Japanese-style partition. In front of each alcove hangs a tied off yellow curtain––the curtain pulls shut. Now amid flickering candle light, licensed massage therapists blend light to moderate strokes with firm pressure to alleviate chronic tension. Clients may also request an invigorating facial treatment, or retreat to a private airbrush room for a new sun-kissed complexion without the harmful effects of UV rays.
