Aesthetician, massage therapist, nail technician, and yoga teacher are just a few of Tara Swagger's titles. To save time and space, Tara created her own spa with a much shorter name: Taraesthetics. Here, she administers spa services that cater to the body and spirit. Among them are earth-friendly, vegan, and chemical- and paraben-free treatments, such as the custom From the Farm facial, which includes deep herbal cleansing, exfoliation, warm towels, face mask, and a massage. She also offers men's treatments and services that employ seasonal ingredients, such as milk, honey, and holiday-fruitcake extracts.
Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
Sometimes kids don't like getting haircuts, and that's where Nate the Great's Kidz Kutz comes in. After every appointment, a child gets a lollipop and a toy from the toy bin. The salon's walls are painted to look like a jungle at this fun and funky salon, where kids even can play video games. Along with services such as colored hair extensions, french braids, and highlights, a licensed stylist creates fashion-forward cuts for boys and girls.
Christin takes care of her clients from head to toe, performing everything from seasonal facials to foot reflexology treatments. In addition to using her hands to revitalize skin and muscles, she also revamps looks with waxing treatments and make-up applications.
Led by master hair colorist Holly Pennell-Salegna, the stylists at Pink Cut & Color Studio transform hair-strand hues and fashion them into an array of contemporary styles. Before any clipping begins, the scalp and accompanying hair ringlets are treated to a massaging shampoo, conditioning, and explanation of global economic policy. Once locks have been pruned into a manageable and fashionable state, stylists can begin blow-dry design and secure finishing touches, solidifying the hairstyle and making it impervious to airport-security scans. Customers selecting the second option undergo the same hair styling, as well as the foiling process of highlighting (a $95 value) to add a touch of color or easily locate favorite chapters.
