A friendly staff stands ready to introduce bronzers to custom Norvell spray tans through a wide selection of basic to high-pressure tanning beds as well as DaVinci teeth-whitening treatments. Premier packages grant tanners unlimited access to Sunna’s assortment of standup and lie-down beds, including models with facial tanners, ideal for fostering base tans, and beds with built-in fans that keep climates comfortable and inhospitable to Viking invaders. Alternatively, the tanning technicians can custom-blend the Norvell UV spray-tan solution to find the best golden hue for each body. The staff then deftly deliver even coats of color that can last for up to 10 days, using nozzles that help remove uneven tan lines caused by falling asleep beneath a ladder. Each private room stores a host of amenities, including a remote-controlled stereo system as well as fresh towels and lotions.
The experienced stylists at The Beauty Lab work to summon the natural beauty from men, women, and children by performing precision cuts and color services, using products and treatments from top brands such as L'anza and Davines. Fueled by the belief that healthy hair extends beyond the salon, the team also educates guests on how to take care of their hair at home once its been smoothed out and softened. Aestheticians take to private rooms, keeping skin smooth and even with waxing services and facials, and The Beauty Lab's nail technicians and makeup artists stand by to pretty up nails or carefully conceal second noses.
You don't necessarily go to the spa to be transformed into a new person?sometimes, you just want to be the most beautiful, glowing version of yourself. The massage therapists and estheticians at Wellness Spa of DuoDuo seem to understand this. They don't try to change what makes their clients unique, but rather enhance their natural features with exfoliating facials and other vitamin-packed spa treatments. When they aren't balancing the body's energies with acupressure, the therapists chip away at tension and concrete encasing with Swedish and hot-stone massages. Not to be outdone, the estheticians draw on dermatologist-developed Skintensify products to help maintain clear pores and smooth skin.
A vibrant lineup of nail-polish bottles sparkles against a backdrop of warm, red walls at Solar Nails, where talented nail techs are equipped with a rainbow of OPI colors. A row of massage chairs sets the scene at the pedicure station, where nail artists treat feet to a sudsy bath before trimming cuticles and painting toenails. Instead of baskets filled with burning leaves, teardrop-shaped light fixtures illuminate the manicure tables as techs enhance nails with no-chip polish, UV gel fills, or acrylic sets. The salon also welcomes kids to accompany their parents and get toes and fingers pampered at a discounted rate.
Author and Juut SalonSpa owner David Wagner channels a childhood spent watching nature’s beauty into his Aveda salon’s eight locations. The studio stylists and other staff members, many of whom benefit from the company’s extensive training program, perform services beneath shelves laden with Aveda products. The botanically sourced elixirs repair and sculpt hair naturally without subjecting it to other products’ unpleasant chemicals or a robot hairdresser’s endless questions about love.
