As the stylists at Royal Salon Organic Care whittle away at unruly coifs, they eschew common ammonia- and paraben-laden chemical products in favor of natural, vegan Organic Salon Systems products. Under the leadership of owner Indre Roy, the experts wield these products while adding depth with highlights, razoring layers, and twisting tresses into updos for weddings or neck model auditions. Organic nail polishes also adhere to the salon’s philosophy, brightening fingertips after the nail technician draws on her background in reflexology to massage hands and arms. Extremities also get a treat in the form of homemade sea salt or sugar scrubs. Sugaring is offered for clients wishing to get rid of body and facial hair.
Since opening their first spa—Sassy SunTan & Oxygen Bar—Heather and Adam Larribas have added a second sunning sanctuary called Sassy Tan & Spa. In addition to providing tanning services, the original location features an aromatherapeutic oxygen bar, while its counterpart on Star Ranch Road offers massage therapy. Visitors to the oxygen bar inhale air that's 90–95% oxygen, as opposed to the 21% usually found in everyday air. Meanwhile, aromatherapy scents such as vanilla, piña colada, and orange bolster the energizing effects of the vapor as soothing eucalyptus scents attract curious koalas.
Both locations offer bronzing via UV beds as well as airbrush gear. In accordance with a mission statement prioritizing cleanliness and comfort, staffers stock each private treatment room with tissues, water, deodorant, and candy. Here, tanners bask in the glow of beds equipped with varying levels of intensity, or close their eyes as a cloud of bronzing mist settles on their skin during an airbrush tan.
Once you have your Groupon, you can get an appointment with one of Viva's staff of master hair shamans, who know how to snip and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Each professional stylist routinely soaks in the trends and styles to ensure the utmost tender care to needy noodle nests, and he or she will happily work with your particular whims or offer whims of their own free of charge. After a thorough shampoo, your stylist will keenly sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then direct careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out ($40 value). Soon after, the scalp will receive a deep conditioning treatment using high-end Eufora products to hydrate and preserve new 'do ($20 value). Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling dark alleyways.
Eye Candy Salon & Spa’s team of hair sculptors trims tresses and transforms head-hues in an upscale, welcoming environment. Each session commences with a shampoo and condition service. Next, stylists craft custom 'dos based on the client’s wishes, facial shape, and number of horns. Specialists also apply their extensive knowledge of hair care products to imbue strands with partial or full highlight treatments. For those with bulkier or lengthier locks, additional highlights are available for an add-on fee of $4 per foil.
At Beautiful Touch Day Spa, a small team of beauty professionals unite under a single goal: to care and serve the inner beauty as well as the outer beauty. The service menu serves this purpose by helping to boost each client’s sense of well-being and self-esteem through pampering treatments, such as deep-tissue and hot-stone massages. The spa's lineup of skincare treatments range from classic, customized facials to more targeted regimens such as chemicals peels and IPL photofacials. The staff can also help clients whittle away inches through body wraps, diet plans, and nutritional programs.
Salon Beauty & Excellence covers all the basic beauty bases. Aestheticians banish dirt and the occasional blue-jay feather from pores during facials, and nail technicians paint fingernails and toenails in a kaleidoscope of polish colors. Stylists tackle hair-related issues, from overgrown locks to strands in need of new all-over color or highlights.
