Massage therapist and cosmetologist Carrie Armes owns the aptly named Carried Away Salon & Spa, and she oversees a friendly team of beauty and relaxation experts who provide custom services for their clients. From haircuts and color treatments that best suit the client's complexion, to facials that target oily, dry, or mossy skin, each pampering session is unique.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Like the demon barber of Fleet Street from whence it gets its name, Sweeney Todd Salon takes a dramatic approach to the styling arts. The salon, which pays homage to its namesake with a blood-red wall plastered with framed Broadway programs, is the brainchild of Robert Dixon, a master hair designer with more than 30 years of industry experience. A graduate of the Franklin School of Cosmetology, Robert leads a team of stylists in sculpting manes with products by Scruples, Paul Mitchell, Deva Curl, and Aquage. Meanwhile, an on-staff skin specialist purifies pores and boosts outer radiance with facials, waxing, and makeup services. In front of the salon, floor-to-ceiling windows mingle their light with that of stainless steel pendant lamps, which illuminate a cozy waiting area stocked with magazines, black couches, and blank farewell cards to soon-departed tresses.
The staff at The 212 Salon work to re-energize and refresh guests with hot stone massages, nail services, and an infrared sauna. Stylists use highlighting and perming techniques to transform the color and texture of tresses while aestheticians smooth complexions with three types of facials. Nails can also be altered into a better version of themselves after technicians file and buff the digits before coating with a chip-resistant shellac polish or adding length with tips. Along with hosting ladies nights and birthday parties, the salon pampers clients with makeup tips using hypoallergenic Tigi Cosmetics as well as keeping their retail area stocked with hair care from Aquage, Joico, and Kenra.
Skincare by Design's aesthetician brings more than a decade of experience to the treatment table where she performs facials, waxes, and makeup services. Vitamin-enhanced facials hydrate and smooth complexions. Whereas waxing sessions remove unwanted body hair, eyelash treatments add faux strands to the eyelid, leaving lash lines defined and darker.
Indigo Salon and Spa's troupe of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists rejuvenates and beautifies guests within elegant environs decked in wood, leather, and chiffon to achieve a rich, shabby-chic vibe. Thermal wraps and spa treatments slough off the stress of everyday life or a single day of lion taming, and shelves lined with bath bombs, soaks, and scrubs proffer take-home tranquility.
Sizeable mirrors, framed in white and affixed to light cream walls, reflect tresses mid-transformation as guests lounge in white leather styling seats alongside Paul Mitchell products. Chandeliers illuminate stylists' fingers, and diaphanous draperies separate workstations. In the lobby, waiting clients can nibble treats or sip steamy mugs from the coffee and tea bar as they bask in the glow of a candle-filled fireplace or burn a piece of paper with the name of their old stylist on it.
