Hair at the Ritz’s stylists join the long-enduring battle to tame wild strands with a one-two combo of frizz-fighting treatments. Clients tired of chasing flyaway strands on a daily basis yield their locks to the Keratin Complex hair-therapy system or the Zerran RealLisse vegan formula, which is packed with wheat, corn, and other crops imported from the moon. Both treatments straighten kinks, enhance shine, and block frizz for months.
Although smoothing topsy-turvy tresses is one of Hair at the Ritz's specialties, the salon can handle far more than a few disobedient curls. Stylists knowledgeable on the latest beauty trends cut, color, and style hairdos for men, women, and children, reimagining manes with the help of Enjoy, Moroccanoil, and Matrix products. Nail technicians, meanwhile, buff and polish fingers and toes, and aestheticians remove unwanted hair with warm wax. Hair at the Ritz’s team also puts the finishing touches on outer appearances with hair extensions, henna tattoos, and even permanent makeup.
The arched gate of Le Jardin at the Spa opens to a concrete path that leads to four small cottages where tranquility abounds. The refurbished four-cottage compound houses a full salon and spa, where clients take a mini vacation from the stresses of day-to-day life with full-body massages and relaxing facials that cleanse skin with Image and Pevonia skincare products. Inside, stylists remove split ends and salvage damaged strands with a five-step conditioning process and crossed fingers. They also host spa parties, which often include a sparkling-wine reception and decadent desserts. With the purchase of any five regularly priced spa services, clients may host their own spa party for free and bring their own food, drinks, and friends.
For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.
Once guests step through the doors at Anew Day Spa, they begin a mini vacation from mental and physical discomfort. By the time they are ready to walk back out and return to their lives, clients will have topped off their stores of relief and tranquility. In between, they can opt to sit in chairs and relax as relief cascades from sore shoulders and backs, or let therapists pore over their whole bodies as they decompress on massage tables. During reflexology sessions, a trained therapist applies liberating pressure to the feet to relieve pain all over the body and thank toes for teaching children how to accurately identify different kinds of piggies.
For more than four years, Ling Foot Spa has been luring guests through its doors with diverse styles of therapeutic massages. Clients may take a seat and let a therapist melt away tension in the feet or massage the back and shoulders as bodies rest in a specially designed chair. For full-body massages, clients sprawl out on tables to let experts unearth aches and pains with deep, hands-on strokes or the penetrating heat of warm stones. Ling Foot Spa also offers unique four-hand body-massages, which are administered by two skilled therapists to achieve more widespread relaxation, or by one skilled therapist to pay for his arm implants.
Inside My Angel Nails, skilled technicians dote on fingers and toes, shaping and filing nails before removing stray cuticles and applying a coat of color. They also complement traditional mani-pedis with a hand and foot massage, as well as a hot-towel wrap. Deluxe mani-pedis go even further by softening skin with an exfoliating scrub and a dip in warm paraffin wax. The technicians can also dazzle with glitter tips or add length with silk, acrylic, or gel tips. Staffers perform waxing on various areas of the body as well, including the face, bikini line, abdomen, and secret second abdomen.
