Bedecked with a beautifying arsenal of Aveda potions, tinctures, and serums, the pampering professionals at Pure Salon and Spa work their stylish sorcery with a panoply of spruce-up services. Give harried hair a comprehensive diagnostic during a 15-minute complimentary consultation, in which a stylist can help identify damaged spots, frayed ends, and cryptic scalp crop circles. Pure's scissor twirlers twist through expert cuts (starting at $27 for women, $18 for men) and color placements (starting at $75) using Aveda plant- and mineral-packed treatments. Aesthetes seeking skin salvation can unfurl new face flags with a 60-minute Elemental Nature facial ($60) or melt beneath trained tendon thumps during a 60-minute Elemental Nature massage ($60), which is customized to each client’s kneading needs. One-hour massages can also undergo an Eastern upgrade with the chakra-balance add-on ($20), which realigns energies and lumbar shock absorbers with Indian aromas and deep-tissue tenderizing.
Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologist and medical director Dr. Alexander Zemtsov, Bliss Laser Hair Removal & Med Spa offers an array of nonsurgical procedures to freshen weary dermises. The Bliss classic facial (a $50 value) begins with a skin analysis conducted by one of the spa's certified aestheticians and continues with a deep cleansing and formidable facial massage. After exfoliating, steaming, and extracting toxins from your skin (if necessary), the treatment will conclude with a reviving mask and hand treatment to leave your mitts fresh and ready for their next sock puppet blind date.
Sunsations Tanning keeps the epidermis properly bronzed with personalized airbrush sessions. During a UV-free, spray-on tan, a specialist will douse tanners in a special skin-coloring mist, which can be personalized to the customer's liking, whether they need a shade that says "Day at the Beach" or "Orbits a Neutron Star." Because it’s administered by a human, the application safeguards against the drips, streaks, and smudges commonly caused by unsteady robot hands. The fresh bronze coat ensures your skin will be able to capture wandering eyes quickly and without resorting to more damaging methods involving UV rays or laying under heat lamps at the buffet.
Backed by the sound of soft music and the smell of aromatherapy at work, ClipZone's stylists and aestheticians harness the pampering powers of beauty products to soothe strained muscles, exfoliate skins, and domesticate tresses. In the salon, harried heads can acquire depth and definition with a dimensional color ($54–$74), lowlights ($44), or partial highlights ($44). Or, buy two Groupons to get scalp noodles straightened one day ($52) and permanently waved the next ($48) to keep friends in an optimal state of confusion.
Indiana Laser Tattoo Removal's technicians remove tattoos with lasers. No other services divert their attention from the technique, safety, and aftercare of tattoo removal. Certified laser specialists and safety officers work with Q-switched lasers to break up ink beneath the skin. The laser splits into two wavelengths to target different pigments: one set breaks up darker hues, and the other dispenses with reds, greens, yellows, oranges, and bananas.
When building her salon, Veronica Beamon was guided by the golden rule: “what would I want in a salon?” The result is Glam Hair Studio. Faux-marble floor tiles and decorative mirrors pamper the eyes as Veronica and her team of skilled stylists rewire hair circuit boards with confident layers and conditioning treatments. Clients also may request highlights using Joico K-Pak––a high-end product that reconstructs as it colors, leaving hair with a better shine and improved credit score.
Professional stylist and color expert Christine knows that hairstyles have to happen every day, not just at the salon. She finds it unfortunate that many stylists whip up hair into chic, fashionable looks only to leave clients befuddled the next morning when they try to replicate them. That’s why Christine administers fashion, bridal, and stylized cuts that clients can wear every day. To keep newly acquired styles looking shipshape for as long as possible, she treats hair with deep conditioner to strengthen and fortify locks against the elements and colors hair using products without damaging ammonia ingredients.
