Nails By Moonlight is an independently owned nail salon tucked within the consignment store Ladies First Resale Boutique. The technicians specialize in services using Shellac and OPI gel polishes, which keep manicures and pedicures looking fresh for longer than traditional hues. The chip-resistant polishes also require minimal drying time, as they cure under a special light rather than in front of a window air conditioner. Before techs apply any color, nail art, or artificial nails, they buff and file nails to ideal lengths and push back cuticles to ensure clean surfaces.
RedBloom transforms knotted tresses into follicular waterfalls with an array of services for men and women. A friendly staff of master and certified stylists use haircuts to trim noggin weeds into trendy ‘dos ($35+ for men, $45+ for women), and colour services give pallid pelts a hued sheen ($70+). Highlights bequeath locks with prismic character ($80+ for partial, $110+ for full), and makeup applied by a certified artist fancifies facial canvases for glamorous events, from celebrity gatherings to black-tie clown rodeos ($45+). Complimentary services coddle clientele with scalp, shoulder, neck, and hand massages, makeup touch-ups for women, and hot-towel face treatments for men.
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Using VelaShape, an FDA-approved procedure that fuses infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies, and mechanical massage, technicians can contour away cellulite. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic’s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
A private treatment room blooms with the aromas of jojoba essential oils as professionals detangle muscle knots or harvest beauty from pores using Aveda's signature blends of flower and plant essences. Staffers can also add pizzazz to guests' hair using coloring products that are up to 99% naturally derived and extensions that are made from human hair or colorful feathers. Additionally, staffers can remove unwanted body bristle with waxing services or immerse tired feet in a cane-sugar scrub and tubs of Yanni mix tapes during soothing Caribbean-therapy pedicures.
The appearance enhancers at Bello Salon & Spa spruce up dull hairstyles and unkempt nails with a wide selection of image-adjusting services. A pedicure indulges tired digits with a relaxing footbath. Keratin whisperers will shape, buff, and trim cuticles, readying toes for debuts in sandals and grade-school productions of The Crucible. Afterward, the pedicurist will exfoliate feet, wrap them in warm towels, and massage every piggie before coating nails with fresh polish that can last from three to five weeks. Alternatively, customers can request a cut and color to transform hair into a new shape, such as a chic pixie cut or a geometrically perfect hexagon. Stylists will also revive lackluster 'dos with a coating of vibrant color before completing the look by styling strands with Aveda products.
Against vivid, sky-blue walls that evoke memories of beachside relaxation, certified masters and ambassadors of Smart Tanning stand ready to bronze pale human skin with top-of-the-line equipment. The facility caters to customers' individual needs with warmed Mystic HD booths and the latest UV equipment, including Soltron's high-pressure Shark bed, complete with cozy mattress, or Ergoline's Sundash, a standup booth that allows patrons to tan while practicing marching-band routines.
