Thomas Stewart helms Studio 54 Gallery with 25 years of cosmetic experience in tow. In the chic salon, he grooms men with straight-razor shaves and steeps hair in high-end products from Moroccanoil, among others. The studio's brazilian-walnut hardwood floors and custom walnut cabinetry shine between red walls lit with gallery-style lighting. Clients sit back in Italian-leather chairs, whose red color was inspired by the piles of ripe tomatoes that stylists sat on in ancient Italy.
The savvy, dedicated staff at Sabatelli's Golden Salon & Day Spa helps customers achieve sun-kissed skin by coating their bodies in a UV-free tanning solution fortified with antioxidants and pure botanicals. The darkening concoction utilizes Infinity Sun technology, which atomizes various treatment lotions into a mist that precisely anoints epidermises with an even-toned hue over the course of 15 minutes. The procedure affords the opportunity to choose the preferred shade of tan and solution type. A bronze solution strives for instant color, and the clear solution brings out a tan that appears gradually and eventually gives customers the ability to become invisible. If nurtured properly, each tan can last for up to 14 days.
The Italian word "ciao" means both hello and goodbye, though "bella" always means beautiful. So when a stylist at Ciao Bella calls out the salon's namesake phrase, she could be greeting a returning guest, but she might also be sending off a client transformed by a cut, color, or chemical-relaxer service. The staff uses Matrix and California Smooth products to achieve these transformations amid the salon's cheery turquoise walls and wood furnishings, carved from only the most fashion-forward trees.
Tropical Tan, with a focus on convenience and the belief that everyone deserves a great tan, spans across four locations. Each tanning sanctuary is manned by a knowledgeable staff who offer advice and suggestions on which of the many tanning beds or lotions to use for the best bronze.
