It’s at the midpoint of a session at Luscious Lashes that clients can most see the difference. One eye’s worth of lashes are strikingly longer and more voluminous with a full set of synthetic lashes bonded to each natural lash. Luscious Lashes’ fleet of licensed aestheticians and certified specialists painstakingly adheres the silky lashes, leaving clients looking freshly made-up without the use of mascara. The lashes shed when natural ones do, giving the extensions about a three-week lifespan before they take to the wind like a baby bird.
Opened in 1980, the established Mitchell Anthony Salon offers beautifying and pampering hair and nail services. By appointment or walk-in, customers can relax as they receive haircuts, color treatments, or conditioning treatments. The salon's stylists also carefully and patiently cut children's hair. Other services include straightening treatments and makeup and hair for formal events.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
Eyebrows are meticulously shaped into graceful, well-defined arches during each session at Pretty Threading. Here, the stylists pull hair from delicate facial areas using a single length of thread, in a process that’s less tedious than using tweezers, neater than using wax, and more precise than using a magnifying glass to burn off each hair individually under the hot sun. Keeping with ancient Indian tradition, stylists also decorate hands with intricate henna and glitter designs, as clients watch them work in mosaic-framed mirrors hung on mottled bronze walls.
MGM Hair Salon’s stylists keep hair healthy with precise, contemporary cuts along with color and styling services using products from brands such as Bumble and bumble, Enjoy, Redken, Schwarzkopf, and Bosley. The salon's colorists add dimension and vibrancy to hair with single- or double-process color alongside fortifying conditioning treatments. The salon’s hair wizards can also thread eyebrows with twisted pieces of string leftover from unsuccessful sessions of cat’s cradle.
