Midnite Sun & Cruise's red-light therapy treatments reinvigorate weathered skin, imbuing it with a smooth, youthful sheen. Vertical booths emit red light waves and motivational fight songs to kick-start the body's collagen production, enhancing skin's elasticity, suppleness, and strength. Additionally, treatments can soothe acne-prone skin, reducing redness and speeding up blemishes' healing time. For skin tighter and brighter than a sequin-studded ice-skating ensemble, approximately four sessions per week are recommended. Though not covered by this Groupon, Midnite Sun & Cruise's helpful staff is happy to suggest additional in-store serums to amplify results.
In 2002, Glamazon was a one-man show, with owner and color-specialist Jere styling all clients, all the time. Though today Jere’s staff has grown to include four more talented designers, nail technicians, and massage therapists, he’s kept his basic concept intact: an urban salon geared not just toward offering chic hairstyles for all, but also helping the community. Throughout haircut and color services, Jere and his crew draw from a shelf full of environmentally friendly products by brands such as Neuma, Kemon, and Pureology—all of which forgo harsh chemicals and playground name calling. Outside of the salon, the team hosts various community fundraisers in support of organizations such as the Child Abuse Council and Every Woman’s Place.
Sandra Murphy, Glamour Permanent Cosmetics' owner and certified cosmetics specialist, crafts tattooed facial enhancements that mimic the look of makeup, bestowing eye and lip regions with natural-looking fullness and perpetual allure. A team of four safety-certified staffers assists Murphy, each specializing in a particular form of cosmetic enhancement such as eyelash extensions, teeth whitening, and tattoos. Murphy has honed her craft since 2006 and now instructs a 100-hour course designed to certify new permanent cosmetics artists.
Perfect Brow Bar was born in 2008, when the United States first started embracing eyebrow threading—an ancient method of removing unwanted hair with swift twists of a cotton thread. As the service’s popularity grew, so did Perfect Brow Bar: it now boasts more than 15 locations across the central states. Some patrons report that threading is less painful, causes less redness, and is more precise than waxing, and the method doesn't require any brutal candle killing. In addition to threading, the trained staff beautifies clients with services including facials, eyelash extensions, and henna tattoos.
After gaining experience at several advanced training academies and prestigious salons, Donaylle Nicole channeled her ample styling skills into her own salon. At Donaylle Nicole Hair Studio, she leads a team that includes experienced stylists, aestheticians, and a facial specialist from the Bengston Institute. They employ Redken, Pureology, and ammonia-free hair products in their beautifying regimens. As the stylists perform precision haircuts and coloring services, aestheticians pamper other clients from head to toe with body wraps, pedicures, and professional makeup services with Mirabella products or colorful lacquers. To help spice up birthday and bachelorette parties, they also offer custom spa parties that can include massages, facials, and waxes.
The studio itself reflects the staff’s passion for aesthetic beauty. Exposed off-white brick walls attempt to hide behind diamond-shaped mirrors and flowing brown curtains. Rustic hardwood flooring evokes the deck of a pirate ship—only in the salon, the hair that falls onto it smells pleasant.
