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.
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.
A visit to Elements Skin Care & Massage Studio is as much a treat for the eyes as it is for the senses. In each of the spa?s spacious chambers, the stark geometry of dark wood furniture complements the flowing lines of a sheer curtain, a linen-draped massage table, or a single potted orchid. These aesthetic pleasures only serve to enhance the sensory decadence that the staff of skin specialists, massage therapists, and nail technicians grant their clients. A slate of 10 facials ?including a signature service that treats not only the face to a massage, but the feet, legs, back, and scalp as well?help stave off blemishes and fine lines with Bioelements products. In private massage rooms, therapists call on several modalities to ease tension with hot stones, firm pressure, or pregnancy-appropriate strokes, as reflexology foot treatments ease tension stemming from tight shoes or arguments between toes. Feet can also bask in the spa?s many pedicures, which go beyond standard nail-salon services to incorporate heated lava shells, warm neck wraps, and even complimentary martinis.
Hair is an essential aspect of beauty—the right cut can frame a face in such a way that highlights its best features or suggests a cool, confident demeanor. The stylists at Essentials Salon appreciate this, which is why they offer contemporary haircuts for men, women, and children, along with Coppola's Keratin Complex Hair Therapy, a specialty treatment that diminishes frizz and curls for more manageable styling.
Styling is only one aspect of Essentials Salon’s menu, however. While facial-waxing treatments eliminate unwanted hair from the chin, lips, and brows, technicians brush nails with a chip-resistant Shellac polish that protects them from teething finger puppets.
