The beauticians at Poshe Salon & Boutique mix and match a host of services to enhance their clients’ beauty. They transform hair with haircuts and full or partial foils, wax off unwanted facial fuzz, and protect nails against scratches with long-lasting Shellac polish. They also customize eyelash extensions based on eye shape and contact-lens color, drawing from a selection of seven different lengths, three thicknesses, and four styles.
Welcoming harried hair owners to find respite amid high ceilings and dreamy blue hues, the professional pamperists at True Colors Salon rely on organic haircare products and advanced techniques to renovate neglected noodle nests. Spicy up boring head threads with a new hue ($55+ for all-over color), or bestow tinted spunk to the best-behaving strands ($45+ for partial foil). True Colors Salon’s friendly mane tamers will groom overgrown head gardens into well-coifed masterpieces free of tangles, split ends, and crabgrass ($30 for women’s haircut; $20 for men; $15 for children), or sculpt elegant updos ($45+) to suit any evening of dining, dancing, or fancy mopping.
Captained by skincare aficionado Katie Arendt, the aestheticians at About Face restore skin's youthful radiance with diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments and Dermalogica products. To begin the face-refurbishing process, an aesthetician applies a deep-cleansing treatment before a diamond-tip wand sashays up and down epidermal real estate, suctioning away dead cells and resurfacing skin. To up the aesthetic ante, extractions evict troublesome blemishes, and a massage kneads away facial tension. Guests then yield their nose and cheek placeholders to a nourishing mask and moisturizer, which hydrate patches of skin made flaky by nuzzling sandpaper cutouts of Hollywood hunks. The 70-minute session reveals a freshly glowing face with smoothed fine lines, reduced acne damage, and cheeks softer than a bunny that has devoured its weight in marshmallows.
Their weapons may be scissors, but the Redken-color-certified stylists at In Style Salon are soldiers nonetheless. Theirs is a war against frizz, dull colors, and split ends, problems they alleviate with precision cuts enhanced by highlights and expert perms. In addition to transforming women’s locks, the barber-certified stylists can curate the beards that grow on men’s chins and elbows, and they continually educate themselves on the latest coiffing techniques for all hair. Clients can also visit with the salon’s aestheticians for skin-reviving facials and peels or waxing services.
With three levels of UV beds and an organic, FDA-approved spray-tanning solution at their hands, the Smart Tan–certified staff at Coconutz Tanning Spa can create a customized tanning regimen to match nearly any skin type or desired level of darkness. The salon’s UV beds contain up to 56 bulbs that bronze skin, and optional high-pressure tanners show embarrassing home videos to quickly add color to faces. The spray tan’s natural, organic ingredients diffuse across skin in a hand-sprayed mist, imbuing your body with a summery sheen that lasts five or more days. When the golden mist clears, shelves stocked with a lineup of sunless-tanning and tan-enhancing lotions come into view. These specially formulated products further darken the skin’s hue and protect it from drying out with added moisturizers.
