Before Kellie Asher got her state certification and was asked to perform makeovers on Fox News, she got her start applying stage makeup for the actors in her high school. Today, she calls upon all that experience to pamper guests of all ages with traditional and airbrush makeup applications. To ensure the face is a clean and healthy canvas, she also performs facials, chemical peels, and waxing services.
Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologist and medical director Dr. Alexander Zemtsov, Bliss Laser Hair Removal & Med Spa offers an array of nonsurgical procedures to freshen weary dermises. The Bliss classic facial (a $50 value) begins with a skin analysis conducted by one of the spa's certified aestheticians and continues with a deep cleansing and formidable facial massage. After exfoliating, steaming, and extracting toxins from your skin (if necessary), the treatment will conclude with a reviving mask and hand treatment to leave your mitts fresh and ready for their next sock puppet blind date.
When building her salon, Veronica Beamon was guided by the golden rule: “what would I want in a salon?” The result is Glam Hair Studio. Faux-marble floor tiles and decorative mirrors pamper the eyes as Veronica and her team of skilled stylists rewire hair circuit boards with confident layers and conditioning treatments. Clients also may request highlights using Joico K-Pak––a high-end product that reconstructs as it colors, leaving hair with a better shine and improved credit score.
Indigo Salon and Spa's troupe of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists rejuvenates and beautifies guests within elegant environs decked in wood, leather, and chiffon to achieve a rich, shabby-chic vibe. Thermal wraps and spa treatments slough off the stress of everyday life or a single day of lion taming, and shelves lined with bath bombs, soaks, and scrubs proffer take-home tranquility.
Sizeable mirrors, framed in white and affixed to light cream walls, reflect tresses mid-transformation as guests lounge in white leather styling seats alongside Paul Mitchell products. Chandeliers illuminate stylists' fingers, and diaphanous draperies separate workstations. In the lobby, waiting clients can nibble treats or sip steamy mugs from the coffee and tea bar as they bask in the glow of a candle-filled fireplace or burn a piece of paper with the name of their old stylist on it.
For the last decade, the staff at Tavernier's Salon & Spa has revitalized appearances and moods with a slew of salon and spa services. Defined by its brightly colored walls and artwork composed of primary yellows and reds, the interior is home to a team of diligent stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists.
Tavernier's hairstylists wield Redken and Matrix products with full-color treatments and strategically placed highlights to add depth to monochromatic hairdos. Nail technicians prettify appendages with Opi polish and soothing, hydrating dips into paraffin wax, and skincare specialists administer facials such as the one-hour basic European facial, which opens up pores like they're interviewees on Oprah so that they release their pent-up dirt and leave with a cathartic sense of cleansing and exfoliation.
