SassaFrass Salon and Boutique’s stylists and aestheticians skillfully snip locks in a friendly salon that boasts bubblegum-pink and magenta striped walls. Stylists’ hands deftly give dimension to tresses with highlights, add luxurious length with hair extensions, and wax away unwanted moustaches. For those looking to retouch skin rather than hair, the salon’s SunStar tanning beds and organic airbrush tanning give bodies a coppery glow, helping clients look at home at the beach even before they’ve moved into their new three-bedroom sandcastle.
The versatile staff members at Gossip in the City strive to help their community look and feel better with a range of services that extend beyond the standard salon. They pretty up guests' exteriors with waxing, nail, and hair services, keeping up with the latest industry trends to ensure that their cutting and coloring techniques are up to date. Their relaxing services don't stop at the surface, however—on-staff massage therapists help to heal guests from the inside out with reflexology and massage therapy.
After brightening reflections with facials, spray tans, and makeup services, guests can step in front of the camera as photographers from their professional photo studio snap eye-catching portraits and create custom holiday cards.
At Bikini Body Factory, licensed aestheticians and spa technicians revitalize clients with both technical spa services and holistic skin treatments. They knead backs using Swedish or recovery-specific massages—often enhanced by scented essential oils—and exfoliate skin with sea salts that leave clients smooth enough to gain acceptance from any snobby dolphin pod. Team members also apply wax and cold cucumber packs to oust unwanted bristle from a wide array of treatment areas. And when they're not catering to clients' aesthetic needs, the therapists assist clients in setting realistic goals with ongoing personal fitness training.
If you rifle through The Hair Revue’s Facebook photos, it won’t take very long before you stumble upon a picture of a smiling boy or girl in one of the salon chairs. The staff’s special knack for working with little ones reflect the family-friendly nature of the business, who welcomes everyone from babies to grandmothers.
For grownups, the stylists snip and color hair, as well as create intricate 'dos for special occasions such as weddings. Elsewhere in the salon, aestheticians such as Crystal Seiler trim nails and paint them with standard polish or chip-resistant Shellac.
