Tara Weld opened Hair Divine, LLC after she trained with the Paul Mitchell education system. It’s since become an established salon emphasizing modern styles—the professional staff members share 24 years of experience in the beauty industry and they channel every day of that time into each of their hair and body enhancements. Using KMS California and Paul Mitchell products, they can craft and style haircuts that flaunt vibrant colors like the king of Candyland flaunts his crown made of Skittles. You can also head to Hair Divine for make-up and waxing services; Tara, herself a licensed massage therapist as well as stylist, performs Swedish, hot stone, and prenatal massages.
Megan Renee Beck and April Felty of Rebel Angels Hair Studio add feather hair extensions to their existing plethora of colorizing and keratin treatments. Upon choosing their desired plumage, clients placidly recline for 30 minutes as a beauty specialist crimps the adornments into place, allowing them to be styled along with the natural strands. Maintenance includes a one-time resetting or removal of the quills for clients in need of general upkeep or a reprieve from roosting cockatiels.
Avery Bella Hair Studio, a venture run by a mother-daughter pair, specializes in bold and whimsical haircuts. The licensed stylists wield products from Joico and Pravana as they remodel manes, evicting frizz with keratin blowouts, adding extensions for voluminous length, and fashioning event-ready updos. Their color treatments range from subtle highlights to striking ombre looks, which can fade ends into vibrant purples and pinks. In addition to haircare, the salon treats clients to classic and Shellac mani-pedis as well as makeup applications and facial waxing. Avery Bella Hair Studio is flanked by Pink Diva Jewels Etc., a fashion-jewelry boutique that adds shimmer to ensembles more effectively than a dress covered in bike reflectors.
In every private tanning room at Sun Spot, a shelf and hangers ensconce clothes and satchels. Shoes flop to the floor next to comfortable seating, slipping from the feet of patrons adjusting the volume on personal AM/FM stereos-CD players before the UV bed coaxes out melanin. The UV beds range across six levels of tanning power and sport adjustable body fans so guests can stay cool or find an excuse to redesign the north wing of a house of cards. A parade of clients wanders from VersaSpa booths, which darken skin with a bronzing elixir infused with custom color and moisturizer designed to hide the effects of aging. Slipping out past swaying bamboo plants, visitors pass beneath infrared slimming machines and glass shelves that brim with a rainbow of sun-luring lotions from Norvell and Devoted Creations.
When it comes to lasers, one size (or wavelength) does not fit all. Recognizing that no single laser could effectively perform every treatment available, licensed aesthetician Lisa Corbit seeks out beams from top manufacturers to find the best tool for each job. The Candela Smoothbeam 1450 (acne), Hoya ConBio C6 (tattoo removal), Candela Vbeam (rosacea and scars), Candela Gentle YAG (hair removal), and other top-notch beams stand ready to address aesthetic concerns or simply sit there looking science-y when Corbit calls upon them.
