Platinum Salon & Tanning’s multitalented team of beauty professionals possesses a knack for boosting its clients’ outer allure with an array of services that leave hair, skin, and nails polished and pampered. With Enjoy, Alfaparf, and Keune haircare products at their disposal, stylists breathe new life into outmoded hairstyles as they snip away unwanted inches, infuse strands with new color, and brush tangled USB cords out of coiffures. The salon’s manicurists reshape nails before adding splashes of color, and tanning beds darken complexions with a sun-kissed glow. During each visit, clients can sip on complimentary beverages such as coffee, tea, or adult grape juices, including the salon’s signature chocolate wine.
Shangri-La Day Spa looks like a surprisingly functional synthesis of a Victorian drawing room and a Japanese teahouse, characterized by oak armchairs upholstered in paisley prints, ornate oriental rugs, and shades that create the impression of paper wall partitions. Inside, licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and cosmetologists weave their various specialties into a tapestry of relaxation and beautification. Trained therapists whip up nosegays of aromatic essential oils to soothe senses or enlist the tension-melting help of heated volcanic stones during massages. Organic products envelop faces during signature facials and peels, and a sea-salt polish scrubs bodies free of dead skin cells more effectively than sending in a magic school bus full of zombie hunters.

Nails aren't the only things that get pampered at MojiToes Nail Bar. Before licensed technicians gear up to lavish extremities with focused grooming and no-chip Gelish polishes, they urge guests to sip on the complimentary drinks and cozy up to the European Touch full-body massage chairs that exemplify the company's devotion to creature comforts. Inside the lime-green facility, white drapes and soft pillows mirror the modern feel of the mosaic-tiled nail bar, which puts fingers and toes in the spotlight with a row of pendant lamps. While specialists dote upon extremities, guests can let their eyes settle on vivid flat-screen TVs, explore the contents of an e-reader, or access the free WiFi to create a social-media profile for a newly beautified big toe. For communal coddling, MojiToes Nail Bar also opens its doors to bridal parties and ladies' nights.
