The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.
The stylists at Salon Evangelos skillfully cut and coif hair, but they specialize in custom color and color correction. This includes enhancing locks with demi-, semi-, and permanent hues as well as streaking hair with foil highlights to add dimension to 'dos or help big-game hunters camouflage themselves while on safari. Keratin Complex by Coppola treatments smooth frizzy strands for up to five months, and perms give body to flat follicles. Shop shelves stocked with OPI and China Glaze nail polishes and hair products from Paul Mitchell, Aveda, and Moroccanoil grant clients the means to pamper themselves at home.
World Tanning's beauty specialists can vouch for the services and products they provide. Before any lotion becomes available to clients, the tanning specialists test it out, evaluating fragrance, appearance, and flavor. If a lotion or oil makes the final cut, patrons can rest assured that it meets or exceeds industry standard. The same goes for World Tanning’s lie-down and standup tanning beds, whose maximum tanning times range from 9 to 20 minutes, as well as the boutique's VersaSpa sunless tanning booths, which bronze clients to the shade of their choice in less than two minutes. A recent addition to World Tanning's service menu, an infrared sauna promotes metabolism as its warm light induces sweating or blinds deep-sea fish.
Modern lights hang from the ceiling like glowing martini glasses, illuminating vibrant purple walls and polished wood floors. Amid these jazzy accents, skilled stylists create bold cuts and color treatments to fit facial features and unique lifestyles. Clients can also request keratin straightening or nix unwanted fuzz during a swift waxing session.
Lisa Thomas Salon's pair of licensed aestheticians deploy their training to design custom refresher courses that promote radiant, healthy complexions. Staffers usher guests down pumpkin- and coffee-colored hallways to a treatment chamber, inviting them to recline on a bed draped in fresh linens and a soft, chenille throw. After sizing up conditions on the skin's surface, an aesthetician may pull products from the md formulations line with glycolic compounds engineered to safely exfoliate sensitive skin. The resulting refresher course may subdue overproductive oil glands, soothe inflammation caused by rosacea, or replenish moisture and nutrients lost through aging or reading only by laser light.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
