In more than a decade as a hairstylist, Jillian Galli has undergone countless trainings in nearly every aspect of hair. Those have yielded certifications from Brazilian Blowout, Wella and Redken hair color, Aveda, and TressAllure hair extensions. She puts those certifications to good use when snipping strands into classic and edgy cuts, highlighting locks in vibrant hues, and smoothing manes with Brazilian Blowouts.
A trip to Elite Hair & Skin is potentially a multilingual experience: technicians can comprehend the phrases ''I want to look dashing'' and ''Please release the bees from my hair'' in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, and Russian. Staffers trim the locks of men, women, and children, but they also remove hair in other ways—waxing uproots bristles from such areas as women’s bikini regions and men’s full backs, and threading creates precise eyebrow shapes simply by rolling cotton threads across the brow.
Eponymous spa owner Lucia believes that a person’s beauty is a reflection of his or her own health and inner happiness, and that happiness should shine as brightly as possible. To help clients up their wattage, Lucia supports a healthy glow with a repertoire of technologically enhanced beauty treatments that echo Eastern and Western philosophies—traditional natural remedies coexisting with modern beauty solutions.
Lucia's favorite service is the microphototherapy treatment, during which gentle pulses of light dissipate traces of age and acne while purging pores with a blast of light bright enough to help follicles catch up on their reading. Dedicated to helping her clients find the best skin solution for them, Lucia also helps reap clearer skin with a natural herbal peel, which she massages into the skin with detoxifying kneading actions.
For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.
It looks so simple: a length of twisted cotton glides across the face, grazing the upper lip, eyebrows, and hairline. This is threading, an ancient hair-removal art with roots in India and the Middle East. Masters of this art, M&M Thread Salon’s staff members quickly ensnare bristles in their threads, creating lines as sharp and clean as the battle ax that chops soap into bar form. The treatment is particularly beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it uproots hair without chemicals or harmful products. The salon also performs waxing and facials.
