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.
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.
Before he gathered a group of passionate massage therapists and founded Lone Wolf Therapies, massage therapist Kevin Lunsford served as a hospital corpsman in the Navy. From there, he went on to perform EMT work in the Navy Reserve, as well as spend a 20-year stint as a ski patroller with the National Ski Patrol. His desire to help others not yet sated, Kevin attended Apollo College to receive his massage license, all the while plugging a hole in a local dam with his index finger. Today, he plies traditional massage techniques to alleviate stress and aches and practices the holistic art of Bowen therapy at Lone Wolf Therapies, where he and his fellow massage therapists perform relaxing deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone massage sessions in four private treatment rooms.
Aspire Skin & Wellness Clinic shrinks stubborn fat cells with a full spectrum of high-tech lipo-laser and infrared treatments. Each 60-minute lipo-laser session begins with a comprehensive BMI and weight measurement to take stock of physical landscapes. Come treatment time, the client relaxes on a bed as a certified laser maven moves small diode paddles on lymph nodes across the body, breaking up resilient spots of fat cells. The lipo-laser package begins and ends with a trip to the whole-body vibration device to shake down any freed-up fatty acids or leftover lunch money while exercising muscles through a series of contractions and relaxations. The technicians at Aspire Skin & Wellness can also exile unwanted adipose with a slimming far infrared wrap, combining skin-tightening essential-oil creams with a relaxing invisible-spectrum hug, designed to break up fat tissue, reduce cellulite, and warm the body's inner caramel core.
