At an early age, aesthetician Tammy Davis began to soak in beauty knowledge as she watched her mother and aunts style hair and listened to her grandmother?s sage advice about skincare. The passion she developed from those early encounters brought her to eventually study at beauty school, and for the last 17 years she's practiced her craft as a licensed cosmetologist and aesthetician. In recent years, Tammy began focusing on her current specialty: body waxing. In her studio, she applies her artful skills to the waxing needs of both women and men, also providing special treatments for clients who are prone to ingrown hairs.
Inside the Smart Tan–certified Tanners Paradise, trained technicians help clients achieve golden skin in their tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Beds from Voyager, 32 Express, and Focus encapsulate tanners in UV light in order to build a natural-looking tan. Accelerators from such brands as Designer Skin and Luminary boost the effectiveness of tanning, while infusing skin with nutrients and moisture. Meanwhile, MagicTan booths spray an aloe- and DHA-infused solution from 40 nozzles, evenly bronzing skin without UV rays or industrial-smelling varnish.
The colors within the interior of Designer Cuts are bold and inspiring: flame orange paired with mustard yellow and stark blacks and whites. But the decor pales in comparison to the radiant colors on the heads of those leaving the salon with a new do. The stylists offer a wide variety of services, ranging from hair-coloring services, cuts, and styling to eyelash extensions and brow sculpting.
Miniature recessed lights scatter across the salon's ceiling like a constellation of stars, casting a bright glow over neon green chairs, snow-white walls, and earthen clay tiles. Amid these modern accents, skilled stylist disassemble unwieldy hairdos, craft voluminous layers, and add highlights to flatter the client's complexion. Guests may also request an invigorating facial or private waxing session to banish unwanted hair.
