Founded by Heather Snyder and her husband, Joe, Island Tans of Reynoldsburg bronzes bodies with conventional booths, stand-up booths, and spray tanning. Their most basic bed, the Classic, imbues skin with a darker hue in 15 minutes, while the Ultimate Bed harnesses the power of 52 bulbs to tan bodies in seven minutes. They also carry a full line of tanning lotions, including accelerators, bronzers, and moisturizers from Designer Skin, Australian Gold, and Devoted Creations.
Modern lights hang from the salon's ceiling like glowing yellow roses as skilled staff members adorn nails with high-end polishes by brands such as OPI and CND Shellac. N2 also offers nail services reflective of the season, such as pumpkin-spice mani-pedis for the fall.
Whether clients are looking for the right new hair color or a quick touch-up manicure, the staff at Goshia’s Hair and Nail Designs executes hair and body care with professional results. The day spa’s licensed massage therapists use custom techniques to meet each person’s muscular needs, from relaxing hot-stone massages to deep-tissue kneads. Spa packages combine hair, massage, and skincare into relaxing sessions up to five hours long, and waxing treatments remove unsightly fuzz. For each treatment, staff members consult with clients on their treatment of choice, ensuring haircuts complement facial features and pedicures shape nails only as talon-like as the client prefers them.
Open Door's aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to provide physical and psychological relief from long days spent outrunning time and gravity. Common essential power oils include lavender, rose, jasmine, adamantium, and peppermint. The properties of these distilled plant essences help ease depression, dispel stress, and contribute to a good night's sleep. The deep-tissue massage technique, on the other hand, uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to release your body from its dark confines of chronic tension patterns. Pain-causing adhesions (knots) will be untied to alleviate blood flow and achieve a state of relaxation that, much like your secret family in Narnia, you forgot existed.
Kenneth's Hair Salons and Day Spas transform lackluster locks into magnificent manes with flattering, fashion-forward cuts and expert styling. During a cut and style, a master designer will reawaken hair's inner beauty with a consultation, considering each client's desires, hair texture, face shape, and engine displacement before suggesting a blueprint for a sexy new style. As the haircare treatment progresses, customers can enjoy soaking up as much of the modern, welcoming atmosphere as possible while the stylist reveals trade tips and tricks, and recommends products to attain a fresh-from-the-salon look at home. Each master designer stylist comes to Kenneth's with extensive experience in taming human insubordinate frizz, and continues studying emerging cut and styling techniques to make sure each new 'do swings and swishes in harmony with the latest advances in shearing science.
Head 2 Toe tress decorator Courtney heeds customer requests, sculpting individualized 'dos with precision. The licensed stylist washes and trims coiffures into popular styles, from above-the-shoulder bobs to floor-length locks that strategically cover ankle tattoos. Freshly trimmed hair then assumes a vibrant alter ego as it’s painted or highlighted with a spectrum of professionally applied colors. Although not covered by today's Groupon, Head 2 Toe offers additional services for an extra fee, such as prom ‘dos, wedding packages, and eyebrow waxing that helps sneak faces into car showrooms.
