Today, she's a master stylist, but before beauty school, Hali Owens focused on psychology while immersed in a criminal justice curriculum. Since shifting to her true passion, however, she's cultivated a service menu that ranges from bang trims to elaborate wedding updos topped with three-tier cakes. Despite all these choices, Owens advises guests not to get too overwhelmed: "Don’t worry about knowing exactly what you want," she says. "I am glad to help you decide and make the process as easy and stress-free as possible." Customers are able to relax in Owens's chair, knowing they can depend on her 14 years' experience and expert eye to shape and color the perfect hairdo. Her specialties help clients feel their best, and to Owens, that's the best part of the job: "My favorite moment," she says, "is when my client looks in the mirror at the finished look and I can see their confidence rise!"
The stylists and aestheticians at L'Attrait Salon & Spa refurbish hair, nails, and skin with services that range from custom cuts and sun-kissed highlights to makeup application and laser hair removal. To accomplish these feats, the salon employs a range of cruelty-free beauty products. Paraben-free Sidlab Haircouture formulas soften and smooth tresses, botanical-oil-infused Nahla Beauty organic skincare products restore radiance to skin, and chemical- and fragrance-free Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics provide full coverage while letting skin breathe.
The technology-driven treatments inside Islands Tanning MedSpa help bolster the body's glow and reduce its circumference. Inside Magic and Tanses UV beds, 12,800-watt bulbs saturate skin with darkening rays more safely than receiving a hug from a dwarf star. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic and VersaSpa machines spray the epidermis with a bronze hue, and Fit body wraps fuse infrared-heat energy with constricting wraps that help shrink fat cells. Islands Tanning MedSpa also offers memberships.
The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa's locations house traditional and UV-free tanning equipment alongside teams that are certified to perform a slate of med-spa and salon treatments. Cosmetic injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels aim to restore epidermal radiance, and ThinSpa weight-loss plans and CelluPulse cellulite-removal treatments help clients shift into a svelter shape. To soothe away accumulated stresses, massage therapists customize sessions to each client’s unique needs, drawing from a range of modalities to leave musculature more relaxed than a zen master’s stress ball.
