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.
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.
Licensed aesthetician Sharon Bomar helms Deae Lunae Skin Care where she pampers visitors with face and body treatments infused with ingredients such as honey, oatmeal, and seaweed. Bright royal-blue walls and billowing pastel-colored curtains surround guests as they sit swaddled on draped treatment tables for cleansing facials, body wraps, or one-person slumber parties. In addition to soothing clients? bodies and minds, Sharon employs a line of professional-grade products from lines such as Bioline Jat?, Rep?chage, and Refin?e in her treatments.
Staffers at Sun City Tanning stock private rooms with state-of-the-art tanning beds and UV-free spray tanning booths that quickly impart clients with a sunless sun-kissed look. They consult with clients to plot plans of action, directing newcomers to gentler beds to build base tans, veterans to powerful beds that rapidly deepen tones, and geckos to dry rocks. UV-free spray tans quickly lend wintry skin a summertime sheen, and leg-tanning beds help slow-to-tan limbs catch up to neighboring skin tones.
Kelly Ann's Day Spa welcomes guests into relaxation. The Tuscan-inspired studio surrounds them with flickering candles, murals of the Italian countryside, and the soothing sounds of waterfalls and ocean waves. This bliss-inducing setting enhances the spa's services, which include hydrotherapy and steam baths, facials, and body scrubs. The staff also beautifies guests with an array of complementary aesthetic treatments, from hairstyling to mani-pedis.
Post pampering, the therapists show guests to relaxation rooms, where they can lounge in front of a fireplace while sipping tea, nibbling pastries, and fantasizing about never going back into the real world ever again. The spa also houses a retail area that's stocked with products from lines such as Spa Blends.
"You don't have to be famous to be fabulous!" That's the motto at Backstage Beauty Lounge, where clients get treated like pampered stars. The facial services echo this with names including Hollywood Faux Face Lift, which infuses skin with Image skincare products, and Hollywood Secret facial, which includes an anti-aging mask that no one knows about. Treatments are conducted by aesthetician Tina, who specializes in microdermabrasions and peels to help her clients look and feel younger.
