In 1989, Glitz Salons' founder decided to open a salon with a philosophy rooted in working with others to make clients feel good. Twenty years later, the staff at Glitz Salons still mans their stations and lives out that goal. When not performing services such as haircuts and waxing, the crew at Glitz Salons gives back to its community by helping local high schools put on prom fashion shows and hosting fundraising events. A cohesive, supportive unit, the salons' stylists and aestheticians receive continuous encouragement to express their own creativity and implement innovative ideas into their workday. This freedom allows customers to reap the benefits of a staff that thinks outside the box, paints the box, then folds it into a mesmerizing mobile sculpture.
At Timeless Medical Spa, Dr. Subnani and her team of youth-extension specialists perform cosmetic procedures such as SmartLipo body contouring and Dermosonic skin rejuvenation. By sticking to nonsurgical solutions, the staff avoids the complications of noisy operating theaters and the risk of mistakenly losing their patients in the infant ward. Besides in-office procedures, Dr. Subnani also simplifies weight loss with a medically supervised diet plan that focuses on homemade meals and nutritional IV therapy that detoxifies the body and replenishes its half-empty internal bottles of vitamins.
Under the sage direction of Dr. Brian Young, the staff at Beauty Island Spa cultivates healthy complexions, eases aches, and whittles silhouettes with spa services for men and women. The spa’s island theme is reflected in its relaxation-inducing treatments and tropical atmosphere fostered by décor including peach-hued walls, plush white leather chairs, and palm trees inhabited by shipwrecked families. Aestheticians put their beautifying know-how to use as they administer innovative treatments such as LED therapy to help diminish the symptoms of rosacea, acne, or aging.
The technicians at Elle Salon & Spa pamper their clients with their menu of head-to-toe beauty services ranging from haircuts and color to French pedicures. They draw on products from L'Oreal and TIGI to paint hair with highlights and Brazilian Blowouts to fight frizz and loosen curls semi-permanently.
Daniel?s Salon & Studio boasts more than 20 staff members specializing in an array of pampering beauty services. The majority are stylists handling hair services, from carefree stylish cuts to more involved chemical services, such as Yuko Japanese thermal straightening treatments. A handful of highly trained nail technicians devote their time to administering spa pedicures, acrylic nails, and Shellac manicures designed to resist chips for up to two weeks. A thermal massage bed kneads away stress, and a beautifier certified in Botox rewinds faces with wrinkle-eradicating injections.
Though her business may be focused on detaching hairs, licensed esthetician Tiffany Taylor offers anything but detached service. Instead, she champions an "anti-spa" approach, cultivating a warmer, more relaxed atmosphere than what's found in many conventional beauty venues. At ME Beauty, she and her staff chat breezily with clients, refer to their treatments by witty names—for example, a chin wax is a "chinchilla"—and wear regular clothing instead of the overly official uniforms or hazmat suits a lot of other spas require.
Although their attitudes may be casual, their dedication to their craft is anything but. They specialize exclusively in waxing for men and women, boasting rigorous training in the art of swift hair-removal. As a result, they can remove unwanted strands from most any body part between the toes and brows, such as the arms, chest, and bikini areas. They utilize a brand of professional wax sold out of Australia, and never double-dip during appointments. For sensitive zones, clients can purchase Dr. Edna's Bare Ease Cream right at the salon to apply to themselves prior to treatments, which can help lessen the treatment's sting.
