A former model with 35 years of experience as a stylist and salon manager, Judy Petrigac knows a thing or two about makeovers. Over the years working with renowned stylists such as Arnold and Robert Zegarelli has helped Judy hone her craft and today she draws upon that experience to lead the team at Hair Images.
Though Judy's specialty is corrective color, the salon's hair services run the gamut from complimentary bang trims to permanent waves and foil highlights. She and her staff use products from brands such as Phyto and Wella to remodel tresses, and construct custom updos for weddings and other special events. Their skincare services, which employ Dermalogica products, are just as customized. Before treatments, aestheticians conduct face-mapping skin analyses to identify problem areas. Their facials then combat breakouts, dull skin, and signs of aging, depending on the client's needs and whether they prefer wearing a paper bag over their head. Clients can receive a full-on makeover by opting for waxing treatments, airbrush tanning sessions, and mani-pedis.
Guests of all ages, genders, and nationalities regularly stop into Dream Weavers Massage, Spa, and Tanning for soothing massages that can incorporate numerous specialized modalities. After instilling a whole-body sense of relaxation with gentle Swedish strokes or warm stones, specialists begin incorporating client-requested enhancements ranging from vigorous deep-tissue kneads to hand-softening paraffin dips. Guests also visit the spa for UV or UV-free tans, rejuvenating facials, and the removal of unwanted hairs and tusks via wax or laser.
Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
The Body Bar is an ideal place for a body makeover, thanks to amenities that tend to one’s fitness, beauty, and relaxation needs. The gym floor is home to ellipticals, treadmills, Cybex weight-training machines, and rubber-coated dumbbells, as well as fitness studios where instructors teach yoga, Zumba, and a cardio-circuit workout. A trio of tanning beds adds bronzy definition to newly acquired muscles, while waxing services make skin smooth. To top it off, The Body Bar’s team of massage therapists dwell inside of 10 private massage rooms, performing Swedish, aromatherapy, and hot-stone massages that relieve sore muscles and boost circulation, an especially important benefit for those who have just worked out or those who need to get an A on their upcoming blood test.
The staff members at Hollywood Tans guide their customers to the best tanning options for their skin types with a variety of booth and bulb intensities and their own specialized line of indoor tanning lotions. In addition to the high-performance stand-up tanning booths, they also offer UV-free tanning options powered by Mystic Tan.
At the clean and colorful Bahama Breeze Tanning Salon, owner Sara Levine focuses on giving clients a comfortable, speedy tanning experience. Her equipment includes top-of-the-line Sun Ergoline machines?five levels of standup or lie-down UV tanning with internal cooling systems?as well as a Mystic Tan spray-tan booth that mists skin with natural-looking color in seconds. Levine's team changes out the tanning bulbs before the manufacturer-recommended time period so that each client has an optimal session. They also stock lotions from Designer Skin, California Tan, and Swedish Beauty in the reception area, where the black-and-white animal-print chairs bring to mind sleeping zebras or meditating referees.
