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.
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.
Mila Skin Care Salon's eponymous aesthetician, Mila Kriger, calls upon more than 10 years of skin-care experience—including hands-on training with organic and alternative medicines such as Ayurveda—to clear skin of blemishes and promote a healthy, glowing complexion. Though Mila specializes in restoring the face to its youthful radiance, her holistic approach emphasizes whole-body detoxification and may include energy healing, chakra balancing, or karmic residue cleaning. She combines these nontraditional healing methods with advanced skin-clearing treatments, employing a MegaPeel microdermabrasion machine to peel away dead skin cells and a Galvanic facial massager to clear black eye rims caused by staying up late or wearing freshly painted monocles. Depending on the personalized skin-care regimen she crafts for you, Mila may also call upon organic products from Hylunia or the professional formulations of PCA SKIN.
Tropic Sun Tanning Salon keeps its patrons looking sun-kissed regardless of the season with a range of tanning beds and products. Three levels of beds and booths imbue a range of hues from light to deep bronze, while Mystic spray tans employ a safe skin-tinting solution rather than UV radiation.
The beauty pros at Polished Day Spa make multitasking look easy with their signature fassage. A facial and massage in one, the fassage begins with a Swedish back and leg rub and finishes with a skin-cleansing facial that includes a face, neck, shoulders, hand, and foot massage. They also go à la carte, divvying up the services into 30-, 60-, or 90-minute massages or visage-rejuvenating ministrations, such as microdermabrasions, peels, or facials that use Keyano Aromatics products. Keeping appendages appeased, manicurists groom hands and feet during mani-pedis and estheticians remove unwanted hair using french green azulene wax.
Soft as Silk Laser's walls are bathed in rich reds and glimmering golds that evoke the robes and crowns of royalty—but it’s the med spa’s roster of aesthetic services that fully convinces clientele that they’re kings and queens. The staff of aestheticians relies on steady hands, keen eyes, and safe, advanced technologies to elevate their customers’ appearances during hair, skin, and lash beautification services. They aim the Palomar laser at skin of any type or tone to remove blonde, red, brown, or black hairs. Their steady hands erase fine lines and sun spots using a crystallized microdermabrasion machine or the PowerDerm Kinetic dermabrasion, which exfoliates with kinetic energy that further helps stimulate lymphatic drainage and tighten face and body skin. Soft as Silk Laser's certified eyelash technicians can also bolster blinks with permanent lash extensions, whose variety of styles can grant eyelids with anything from a subtle, natural look to a red-carpet worthy dose of drama.
