Beauty and health take center stage at The Aria Nail Spa & Salon, a Paul Mitchell focus salon. Single-use tools and foot baths with disposable liners protect hands and feet during refreshing mani-pedis, before nail artists beautify fingers and toes with Swarovski crystals or high-quality polishes by OPI and CND. While stylists create a whirl of classic and modern do?s, aestheticians reach for Dermalogica products to help them clear out clogged pores and smooth fine lines during facials. Of course, smooth skin is also revered below the neck, and so the team can also wax away unwanted hair on legs, underarms, and bikini areas.
Bodybuilders know well that a flexed muscle is more striking when it's wrapped in a glowing tan. That's why the pros at Maui Tanning give customers plenty of options for achieving that eye-catching bronze hue?from beds and standup booths to airbrush tanning. The latter option ditches UV rays for safe solutions that tint epidermises faster than traditional tanning. And unlike its light-generated counterpart, airbrush tanning can be tailored to hide flaws or accentuate the biceps that beachgoers depend on for directions. Maui Tanning also cares for skin with Optimale serums and creams, which fend off premature aging with plant-based ingredients.
All Star Cuts’ team of five waxing technicians draws on more than twenty years of combined experience to make depilatory missions as swift and painless as possible. In each treatment, wayward hairs are lulled into a false sense of security under plush blankets of skin-friendly wax elixirs, then uprooted and transplanted to greener pastures. The radiance of newly unveiled epidermises is maximized with a soothing application of Paul Mitchell tea-tree body moisturizer. While eyebrow shaping ($18) and upper-lip treatments ($10) claim top popularity honors, All Star Cuts’ technicians willingly defoliate a gamut of body components upon request, including underarms ($20), chins ($8), backs (price upon request), and more.
The aestheticians and stylists at Jenniffer's Spa call upon techniques old and new to get clients feeling their best. When it comes to hair removal, clients can opt for the time-tested technique of waxing, or combat hirsuteness with lasers instead. To feel detoxified, some opt for massages, which can promote circulation, while others call upon the contemporary brilliance of Endermologie machines. Complexion-conscious clients can nourish their skin with aromatherapy facials, or revivify skin tone with a laser facial or permanent makeup.
A shared passion often brings talented people together. That's certainly the case at Planet Sol Salon, where each staffer brings her own background and artistic eye to the salon chair. Alexa Cline, for example, trained with Redken educators to gain expertise in haircuts and color treatments. Melissa Guerra specializes in chemical texturizing, and Natasha Gutierrez—who has interned with an American Board Certified Haircolorist—uses highlights to give hair the perfect amount of dimension. Not limiting themselves to just hair, the team members also administer aesthetic services such as chocolate foot masks and shellac mani-pedis.
The stylists are educators themselves, too. They know that a new look is ultimately pointless if it can't be regularly recreated at home, especially if clients find themselves stuck in a temporal loop. To that end, they recommend manageable styles and explain the step-by-step process for their creation.
The expert staff at Tangles Salon & Spa attend ongoing workshops to keep their scissors sharp and their nail files rough. Armed with Aveda products, stylists shape locks, correct color, and repair dry strands with botanical therapies preceded by soothing scalp treatments. Nail technicians dip toes into ceramic pedicure bowls brimming with fresh water and the spectacles of ceramics teachers.
