Products by brands such as Pharmagel, Aquage, Sexy Hair, Moroccanoil, Vavoom, and Essentials jump into clients' hair and hands at Lakeside Hair Boutique and Day Spa. That's because the stylists use them during hair services, but also make them available for sale in the boutique. It's not just high-end products that refresh guests, though. It's also the facials, hair extensions that last up to one year, soothing massages, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. So, in addition to stylists who re-imagine hair-scapes by using Japanese hair-straightening techniques, nail technicians host clients in cozy black leather thrones during mani-pedis. The latter might involve shiny shellac gels that last for up to two weeks without chipping or fading. Elsewhere—in private rooms—massage therapists work away knots and pent-up stress. Their methods include specialized Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy massages, as well as just playing a tambourine on your back.
Alter Image Hair Salon's experienced stylists imbue locks with pulchritude by performing an array of cut, color, and texturizing treatments using Redken products. During a cut and partial foil, a stylist tames unruly manes into fresh new 'dos before painting strands with golden streaks made with authentic sun extract. For a more dramatic mane makeover, clients may opt for an all-over color brightened with a shine-boosting gloss that lasts up to 30 shampoos. A hydrating conditioning treatment helps dry, brittle, or desert-dwelling bristles prepare for careers starring in shampoo commercials.
At Hair We Are, a licensed massage therapist kneads away aches, relieves pain, and fights stress with 60-minute deep-tissue massages. During each visit, guests recline as highly trained hands deliver deep-reaching massage strokes that loosen tension from muscles using targeted pressure and patented pickle-jar techniques. Each stroke works to increase circulation while sending forth waves of calming bliss through the body. Deep-tissue sessions can also be ideal for chronic-pain sufferers or those dealing with old sports injuries from days of competitive potato peeling.
Founded as a tanning salon in 2003, X-Treme Styles Salon houses a staff of trained stylists and aestheticians versed in services for hair, skin, and nails. UV tanning beds and the VersaSpa sunless-skincare system team up with products such as Devoted Creations to add color and nutrients to clients' skin. Aestheticians rouse dormant hues from faces with the help of Bioelements masks, pumice crystals, and blank coloring books. And to counter unruly strands and fading hair colors, the resident stylists leverage a medley of Paul Mitchell products.
Spice Salon’s owner and stylist, Kristen Spirn, leads an experienced staff in beautifying clients with hair and nail services. Red walls and standing mirrors surround the salon area, where stylists update ‘dos or infuse strands with silkiness via keratin treatments. In addition to topping digits with long-lasting gel, traditional polish, or nail art, techs restore weary feet with heated stones.
