The chic stylists of The Glam Bar pushed the concept of a blowout bar, where clients can walk in and have hair washed and styled from a menu of glamorous looks into a new direction by incorporating brow, makeup, and special-event services. The Glam Bar indulges manes with eight distinct hairstyles that leave tresses glimmering in a sleek blowout or a mess of beachy waves. A host of add-ons further enhance each style, nourishing hair with a rejuvenating wash or making it glow with a smoothing keratin complex treatment. The Glam Bar's boutique focuses on beautifying salon-goers with makeup applications, from classic to minimalist sun-kissed looks. Waxing services take care of unwanted facial hair with lip-defuzzing and brow-arching treatments. Those looking for an entire makeover can stop by the event bar, where staffers help create lavish ensembles for any occasion or the wardrobe bar, which houses new clothes for clients to mix and match until they find their perfect outfit.Despite the heavy levels of glamour, The Glam Bar keeps its carbon footprint small by utilizing organic haircare products and ecofriendly hair tools, including flat irons and blow driers. The chic, white salon, accented by various hues of wood, further boasts a Mother Nature-approved space as recycled materials create the business and gift cards and iPad 2s are offered instead of magazines or forcing clients to tap into their echolocation to track down celebrities for their current gossip.
At The Woodhouse, relaxation begins upon each client's arrival in the spa's dedicated Quiet Room. A fluffy robe drapes around their shoulders and mugs of loose-leaf tea warm their lips as they await the start of their services. The spa's product selection reflects a similar attention to detail: staffers fill the shelves with natural, organic, and wild-crafted products, none of which are tested on animals. They also go the extra mile to include small extras with each session, such as home-care recommendations after facial treatments and foot-cleansing with each massage.
Women, men, and children are all welcome at Salon 31, where a team of eight stylists brandishes shears, dyes, and conditioners to craft impeccable dos. These beautifiers also apply makeup, and during private instruction they teach clients to wield their own blush brushes and lipstick squeegees. Their talents include various specialties, including precision cutting, keratin smoothing, and coloring that is corrective or hides grays.
Lash Out! helps clients gussy up their peepers with synthetic lashes that add natural-looking length and fullness for as long as three weeks without a touch-up treatment. The salon’s selection of lashes includes up to eight different lengths, three thicknesses, and two degrees of curl, allowing visitors to customize their lids' appearance. By affixing each lash with irritant-free, waterproof glue, the aestheticians ensure that clients can still participate in any number of aquatic endeavors, including swimming, showering, and bobbing for office supplies. In addition to eyelash extensions, the aestheticians offer their own signature services, which can include waxing services, glycolic peels, and facials with Jan Marini Skin Research products and fruit-enzyme masks.
The sun simply cannot match the quality of work performed by Sunkissed Airbrush Tanning's technicians. Whereas the star bronzes everyone with the same generic rays of UV light, airbrush techs gild skin with pigments that account for personal factors including body type, skin tone, and preferences. To begin, Sunkissed’s airbrush artists meet with clients to create a custom sunless-tanning product. Each resulting formula contains all-natural, organic ingredients such as sugar cane or melted fudgesicles that darken skin without unpleasant odors, orange hues, or streaking. After preparing the bronzer, the technician takes about 15 minutes to shade the whole body, upper body, legs, face, or décolletage in a superfine mist.
Contemporary Plastic Surgery, helmed by Dr. Robert A. Herbstman's, balances the aesthetic needs of clients with a mix of traditional cosmetic surgery, non-invasive procedures, and top-notch skincare programs. An experienced on-staff aesthetician evaluates each client's skincare needs before designing an individualized and customized regimen. Certified staffers transform bodies through both surgical procedures and noninvasive med-spa services, such as microdermabrasion, which employs a diamond-studded wand to exfoliate layers and stimulate cellular growth.
Sharon Nesbihal, owner of Steven Jenae The Salon, and her trained stylists mold manes amid red, orange, and pale-yellow walls. As they cut hair, slather on color, and apply keratin or vegan smoothing treatments, lofted ceilings with skylights illumine the spacious interior. When they aren't sculpting new dos, they beautify façades with makeup, lash extensions, waxing, and spray tanning. Stylists put these services to work on brides as well, who require meticulous primping before the traditional hopscotch down the aisle.
