A Smart Tan certified salon that's been locally owned and operated since 1997, Sunscape Tanning Salon banishes winter blues and pale hues with a variety of skin-bronzing services. Their SuperSonic standup booth infuses skin with color borrowed straight from sun, and their exclusive airbrush formula mimic a trip to the beach without the UV exposure. In addition to their extensive tanning experience and education, the highly trained staff continues the beauty enhancements with waxing services from brow to leg and facials that benefit teens, men, and women.
April Novack, a licensed cosmetologist, provides hairstyling to men, women, children, and stacks of dogs wearing a trench coat. Alongside Novack stands a staff that specializes in other beauty services, such as nailcare and makeup, to completely revamp clients’ looks.
The warm glow of wall sconces and crystal chandeliers bathes the earth-hued salon in elegant light, illuminating the team of certified stylists and colorists as they reinvent hairstyles from behind plush styling chairs. They draw from professional name-brand products, such as L’Oréal Professionnel and Moroccanoil, as they perform cuts, colors, and smoothing treatments. Nail techs, meanwhile, lavish digits in decorative polishes as aestheticians shoot for epidermal excellence with facials, makeup applications, and waxing services. Staffers also offer in-house and onsite bridal services, prepping brides-to-be and their life-size cake toppers for the big day.
When working with clients’ hands, the master nail technicians of Unforgettable Nails do everything by hand. Using anywhere from 18 to 21 years of professional experience, practitioners paint nail-art designs and resurface artificial nails—fiberglass, gel, or acrylics—by hand instead of using drills or tiny zambonis. The entire staff is licensed to perform CND Shellac manicures, which can be upgraded with treatments such as paraffin dips and skin-soothing hand “facials.” Beyond a row of whirlpool-spa pedicure chairs is a massage room, where licensed therapists assuage muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques.
The Boulevard Salon & Spa deploys experienced stylists to deftly slice hairs from men's chins, cheeks, and heads. Guests recline in barber chairs while pre-shave oil and hot lather swaddle mugs in toasty foam, giving visages a glimpse into the brief life of a cappuccino. A keen-edged straight razor slides along the face to efficiently remove stubble. In the Executive shave, the razor doubles back for a second voyage against the grain, smoothing skin with a thoroughness comparable to double Zamboni treatments for ice rinks or double vacuumings of molting tropical birds. Frosty aftershave and an ice-cold towel seal pores and soothe sensitive dimples, and a face massage dissipates tension from overworked, skeptical eyebrows. Alternately, patrons can opt for a haircut and single shave that foregoes the razor's return visit. A consultation ensures that head bristles will be cropped to specifications using Kenra and L'Oreal professional products, and a hot towel—aided by a head-and-neck massage—steams shoulders into a relaxed slump.
This Aveda salon is supervised by Dawn Caldwell and Kristy Heron, who have more than three decades of salon- and spa-industry experience between them. Dawn specializes in hair color, much like a chameleon perched on a Sasquatch's shoulder, and Kristy is a massage therapist, who also wields a master’s in acupuncture to free up disruptive energy blockages. The duo teams up with a staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, and stylists to treat guests to facials, acupuncture, massages, and salon treatments.
Richa’s Threading Salon & Spa has perfected the art of eyebrows. During threading sessions, the aesthetician lassos each individual hair with a piece of thread and pulls that hair from the brow line. This technique quickly shapes brows into clean arches.
In addition to their eyebrow work, Richa’s beauty experts pamper bodies with haircare and spa services that range from henna applications to facials. For head-to-toe rejuvenation, skilled hands clip and style strands, make eyes pop with eyelash extensions, and soothe sore muscles with massages.
