A cast of 20 hairstylists and beauty professionals works within the bright blue walls of Salon Zen, dedicating talent and passion to making clients beautiful and relaxed. Exposed brick and yellow trim pop out against the salon’s otherwise sea-blue decor, surrounding deft hairstylists as they snip, color, and style locks, and treat strands to helpings of Redken and Pureology products as they go. While blow dryers whirl across freshly pruned coifs, nail technicians pamper hands and feet with indulgent mani-pedis and perk up nails with colorful polish or gel enhancements. A private room beckons relaxers to indulge in a Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage, or lie in wait for an aesthetician to wax away fuzz from the face, bikini line, or mink coat. Deft makeup artists can gussy up features for a night out with expert makeup applications, or can transform pale epidermises into beach-ready physiques with airbrush tanning.
The Palms Salon & Spa owner Wrobyn Tompkins opened her spa to equip patrons in flaunting their natural assets. A proclaimed curly hair specialist, Tompkins strives to enhance natural tress textures with curl-friendly cuts and serums by salon-trusted MopTop and Pureology brands. Her staff of seven stylists can assist clients with troublesome textures or hair loss by fitting and coloring wigs or extending locks past the shoulder with 100% human-hair extensions to conceal clingy pet parrots. Skin-deep treatments at the pampering oasis boast airbrush tans, massages, and facials that elevate a regular day to one that makes each client feel like the best version of themselves.
True to its name, The Wax and Relax Studio presents a serene space for clients to receive beautifying services and leave behind daily stresses. Past exposed-brick walls, caribbean-blue accents, and damask-patterned chairs, aestheticians render skin smooth with cleansing facials and full-body waxes. Massage therapists unknot tight muscles with long, fluid strokes, and makeup artists enhance natural beauty with spray tans and eyelash extensions.
One tiny brushstroke at a time, the Shellac polish is applied to each nail. Immediately, it does double duty, keeping nails nice and shiny and protecting keratin sheets from chips and scratches caused by building too many sand castles in the zen garden. The beauty pros at traspa also make their clients’ bodies shine with the removal of unwanted hair or take out the extra sheen on mugs during oil-blasting facials.
With locations spanning Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Norman, Sandy Beaches Tanning helps keep Sooner State bodies looking summer-ready all year round. Beds by brands such as Ovation, Solaris, and Acclaim HP comprise four tiers of conventional bulb tanning, or Mystic Tan airbrush booths rely upon the body's own magnetic properties to attract the customized formula in a way that helps it adhere evenly to every curve, crease, and prime meridian. To help clients keep up their sun-drenched demeanor between visits, Sandy Beaches also stocks each location's shelves with a large selection of tanning lotions, which customers can learn more about thanks to a biweekly lotion review posted on the business's facebook page.
Imagine, A Paul Mitchell Partner School prepares the future stylists by equipping them with high quality Paul Mitchell products and ample salon practice. Over the course of a two-phase program, students learn the basics, apply their skills in a real salon setting, and then perform advanced hairdressing and chemical work under the supervision of expert instructors. Customers can stop in to witness these newfound skillsets by opting for hairstyling and salon services. The school offers haircuts, color and texturizing services, as well as a range of skin and nail treatments.
