When Dr. Watson founded Vivify Medical, he wanted to create a clinic that used preventative methods to enhance its clients’ quality of life rather than waiting to treat symptoms once they become sick. Today, his staff keeps this motto in mind while administering physician-grade services, such as a variety of weight-loss-management programs, addiction-related treatments, and bio-identical hormone therapy that aims to slow signs of aging. In addition to medical services, the clinic assuages skin with aesthetic treatments including microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
When Creative Designs Hair Studio's owner Nancy Nassar started her salon, she knew she wanted to clear-cut the impediments and general annoyances that can be part of the industry. She shunned the surprise fees and brusque services, and filled her modern salon with stylists eager to discuss trends and chat about techniques. Each appointment begins with a consultation during which hair experts discuss treatments and provide full pricing before they begin. To back each of their haircut and skin and body services, Creative Designs offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee; if clients aren't happy with the results, they can return for a touch-up, refund, or free bear hug.
The stylists at Desmar Unlimited Beauty Salon welcome clients with all hair types to their wheelchair-accessible, multicultural salon. The staff trims, treats, and colors hair, glitzes up nails with chic polish, and removes unwanted hair with waxing services.
Stylists certified in Goldwell, Wella, and Pravana hair color snip and style chic hairdos in a calming salon characterized by natural earth tones. The team analyzes the natural movement of each head of hair and collaborates with clients to design face-flattering cuts that match their style and colors that complement complexions or cummerbund collections. To this end, they wield an arsenal of all-natural shampoos, conditioners, and styling gels that include paraben- and sulfate-free Kevin.Murphy products, fortified with plant extracts, essential oils, and antioxidants.
The savvy stylists at Tantra Hair Salon & Day Spa create accentuating coiffures with an arsenal of Paul Mitchel products and professional hair services. Patrons warm up by the fireplace and sip a complimentary beverage in the neutral-hued waiting area before lending head nests to a scissor-handed specialist, who snips off split ends, creates desired layers, and removes stray cockatiel feathers. A deep-conditioning treatment bolsters silky, smooth head fringe, and a final blow-dry seals in style. Additionally, patrons can brighten locks with partial highlights or thoroughly disguise manes from codependent hairbrushes with full highlights applied to each strand with a paintbrush dipped in a choice of acrylic hue.
Each of Hollywood Tans' 140-plus locations, scattered from coast to coast, houses UV-tanning booths that allow patrons to tan while standing for 8–11 minutes. These standup booths are cleaner than traditional tanning beds, and cut down on the amount of harsh UVB rays. With an average of 15 hygienic booths per salon, patrons rarely encounter waiting times and can stop in without an appointment. Hollywood Tans also offers UV-free methods of adding color to one's skin, including Mystic Tan's DHA-infused spray tans, tanning lotions, and public readings of guests' teenage diary entries. They also stock a collection of more than 25 exclusive tanning lotions to help visitors achieve their desired glow.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. Traditional tanning booths and beds are available, and the Mystic spray tan provides an instant and evenly applied glow. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
