The technicians at Bronze Candy Spray Tans have mastered the art of evenly airbrushing their clients to create a deep, streak-free tan. Their full-body tans are UV free, meaning there's no risk of skin damage. Airbrush tans can also help hide imperfections, such as blemishes, cellulite, and birthmarks shaped like curse words.
Though she may be new to the Overland Park area, stylist Christy Cleaver knows her way around the styling chair. A veteran of the hair industry for more than 17 years, she spent a decade and a half at the helm of her own salon, and brings specialties in razor cuts, hair straightening, and two-tone color panels. Her greatest talent, however, is her ability to listen carefully to each client's wants and needs, and then use the latest industry techniques to help those desires take shape in the styling mirror before them. Best of all, heads leave Christy's capable hands brimming with knowledge about how to recreate styled locks at home, eliminating the need for home hairbrushes to list her as an emergency contact.
Since 2004, The Birdcage Salon's meticulous stylists have injected pizzazz into dreary 'dos with expertly crafted cuts, vibrant colors, and omega-oil-rich Aquage products. The 90- to 120-minute appointment with a Level 1 stylist begins with an investigation into current hair hopes. After reaching a verdict, the hair whisperer will apply complementary highlights (a $70 value) to flatter complexions and provide a good role model for graying ball caps. Follicles marinate in color while patrons marvel at feather-sketched walls inside the open salon. Scissor specialists express their gratitude to veteran split ends before severing ties and shaping locks into a pristine style (a $25 value). The salon is open seven days a week, and Groupon customers can upgrade to a Level 2 or Level 3 stylist by paying an additional fee or bringing a recommendation letter from George Washington’s powered wig. Call ahead for details.
Affinity Salon’s tress-tamers boast a backlog of cosmetological certifications to sanction their spread of skull-string-snipping services. Renovate your head threads with a cut and style (starting at $35 for women, $25 for men), or disguise yourself before a law-flouting jaywalking binge with an all-over color treatment (starting at $50). The salon’s mane-wranglers specialize in using Tigi products to smooth and saturate strands with deep-conditioning treatments (starting at $10), and frizz fighters can also opt for the Brazilian blowout, a 90-minute treatment that actually bolsters hair health and lasts up to 12 weeks without using corrosive chemicals ($300).
The citrus-scented air might be the first thing patrons notice as they enter the amenity-filled salon. If not that, then perhaps the massage chairs, plush and beckoning a body to sit down and relax. At Elegant Nails, the little things make a big difference, as does the staff of nail technicians who fuss over fingers and toes with fine detail and clean equipment. Services include deluxe pedicures with sea salts and mint masks, shellac manicures, and mani-pedis for children whose nails have been attacked by the backyard dirt.
