Nail specialist Sam has painted thousands upon thousands of nails during her six years as a nail technician. After clipping, filing, and buffing nails, Sam uses steady hands to cover nails with vibrant, high-quality polish. She also focuses on the rest of the hands and feet, softening skin with a sugar scrub and curtailing calluses. Her work inside The Hamptons Tanning & Salon is accented with relaxing music and the occasional guest yodeler.
Growing up, Lindsay Kamphuis would grab perm rods and supplies for her hairstylist mother while watching her process up close. At Lindsay Styles—inside B'Lovely salon—Kamphuis brings her childhood dream of following in her mother's footsteps to life. Her extensive services include haircuts and color, styling and updos, keratin smoothing treatments, and gel-polish manicures.
The staff at Glamorosa! Salon & Spa pamper their clients from head to toe with haircuts and color treatments and mani-pedis using all-natural Aveda products. The spa side of the salon features body-polish treatments infused with mango, aloe vera, and Caribbean essential oils and facials infused with natural skin-brightening exfoliants.
Directions in Design's beauty pros help clients adopt a new trendy look. To help them in their quest, stylists reach for quality products from brands like Aveda, Morrocanoil, and Goldwell, while spray tan technicians rely on a sunless formula from Fake Bake to bestow bodies with a bronze glow. Meanwhile, nail artists deck out digits in chip-resistant Shellac polish, and skincare experts design custom facials to address concerns such as dryness or premature aging.
The staff at Natural Glo wants to provide a bronzed look without the harsh effects of UV rays. So tanning techs coat skin in a natural organic solution made with antioxidants and pure botanicals. They can also add a hydration treatment made with emollients, or an anti-aging treatment that rejuvenates skin with exotic plant extracts.
Throughout the treatment areas at Spa Refresh, the gentle bubbling of water features lulls guests into relaxation as candlelight flickers upon the walls. It's a fitting setting for the pampering services that take place inside. Massages in particular feel like journeys, as they begin with a consultation to identify especially achy areas, continue with Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone techniques, and conclude with complimentary showers. In private spa rooms, aestheticians perform five facials designed for sensitive, oily, and other skin types. Elsewhere, no-chip manicures and pedicures shield digits so clients don't have to wear concrete mittens.
