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.
While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
Parto Naderi's team of pampering practitioners and creative stylists hone each client's inner and outer beauty with a robust menu of salon and spa services. Designer haircuts, colorings, and texturizing treatments for men, women, and children are enhanced with popular product brands such as Bumble and bumble., L'Oreal, and Kerastase, and a slew of skin-sloughing services rejuvenate visages, birthday suits, and Presidents’ Day leisurewear with Dermalogica solutions. Massage therapists alleviate aches with five different kneading modalities, from the popular Swedish style to more intense deep-tissue treatments. Digits don OPI polish during manicure and pedicure sessions, which can join up with a massage, hairstyling, and makeup application to create a truly indulgent day-spa package.
As its name implies, Hair Co. specializes in haircare. The salon, which has been in business for more than 20 years, offers a range of hair services. Stylists cut hair into stylish dos, add pops of color with eye-catching highlights, and craft curly coils with perms. The salon offers a range of other treatments as well, which include waxing and tanning, to ensure every square inch of its clients looks great.
In a private room with caramel-hued walls, seasoned aesthetician Gina Fowler focuses intently on whisking stray strands away from eyebrows, letting them arch cleanly once again. Gina’s dedication to clean, speedy depilation is equally evident as swiftly denudes bikini areas, chests, and legs, keeping bodies sleek enough to break the sound barrier but create only a subtle zipping noise.
