Prepping for a big event usually requires multiple salon stops: one for the updo, another for the nails, and the last for a spray tan. Not so at Solar Flair, where stylists perform all these services and more. They bring about bronzy glows with a choice between 11 tanning beds or a UV-free Mystic spray-tan booth. The full-service salon also polishes exteriors with glycolic peels and waxing treatments. This one-stop beautification frees up time before big events for relaxing at home or making googly eyes at the mirror’s handsome new reflection.
Licensed massage therapist Honey Jo Senter delivers large helpings of relaxation to attention-starved muscles in a wide range of massage modalities. Lavish in the gentle motions of a relaxation massage, or opt for attention to subterranean muscle colonies with the deep-tissue massage. The opposite side of pregnant tummies can indulge in a soothing prenatal session to ease the side effects of motherhood's rigorous hazing rituals. An aromatherapy option is also available, accessing the brain's soothing centers through both the back and the nose. In addition to muscle kneading, the skilled masseuse cocoons customers in an all-natural body scrub, before removing the polish and their dead skin cells with soothing hot towels. The combined rub-down powers of a massage and body polish decrease blood pressure, improve circulation, and pacify spooky skeletal systems.
The spacious salon is decked out in a vintage 1920's vintage theme, complete with tan walls and 11 vintage styling stations, which goes a long way towards invoking a warm and unique atmosphere.

Clients may also solicit the salon for a deep-conditioning treatment or elegant new color highlights.

The pro pamperers at Endless Summer Salon LLC brighten faces with a seamless fusion of Old World beauty traditions and modern techniques during a one-hour European facial. Once knowledgeable beauty gurus choose suitable supplements from a trove of top-shelf skin elixirs, pores surrender their hoarded impurities to a firm but gentle exfoliating scrub. A coddling hydrating or refining mask blankets squeaky-clean cells with protective barriers against future dehydration, textural unevenness, and complexion-defiling grease from insurgent french fries before gentle massage strokes expel delinquent tension from the face, the scalp, and the shoulders.
