After spending 15 years working in the wedding industry, beautifying brides-to-be with personalized makeup and henna tattoos, Pritee Gupta and Leena Dedhia realized their dream: to make their treatments available to a broader client base. So they created Mei Salon, where guests can experience their signature eyebrow threading services while listening to calming music. Their skilled staff crafts dazzling highlights and updos and banishes stress with relaxing hot-oil massages and Ayurvedic facials steeped in ancient traditions. The salon also hosts spa parties for kids and adults, which are ideal for celebrating birthdays, girls' nights out, or a decision not to pursue the Guinness World Record for longest toenails.
The Man-U of hair services at The Gentlemen's Cut speaks to a tongue-in-cheek mixture of retro and modern style. The bond between these aesthetics is one of community: fathers and sons can share a Bonding Session haircut, while the Bromance Referral Program rewards those who introduce new guys to the fold. The barbers augment their 50's-era trims with hot-towel shaves and manicure services, proving that fingernail maintenance isn't just for courteous dentists.
The stylists at Salon Valerie are serious about their craft. To maximize their potential and learn new techniques, they attend regular workshops with educators from Paul Mitchell. These efforts pay off during precision haircuts and color services, which they customize to fit each client's personality and facial structure. For an added boost, they also smooth frizzy hair with keratin treatments and administer signature conditioning treatments, including a lavender-mint conditioner that strengthens strands while easing anxiety and guaranteeing your ponytail has excellent breath.
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified airbrush artists also implement customized airbrush tans using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Elite Hair Studio & Spa's staffers travel to New York, LA, London, and Paris for frequent training, returning to the studio with newly acquired skills to better meet client needs during custom services. The stylists begin treatments with a complimentary consultation to determine the cut angles that will flatter cheekbones or what blend of hair color will accentuate complexion, eye color, or the necklace that can't be removed due to a curse. Through signature facials, the aestheticians evict blemishes, and nail techs pamper long-forgotten cuticles before overshadowing them with gleaming polish. Before treatments, the staff directs guests to recumbent leather chairs flanked by wood-framed mirrors and furnishes each visitor with cucumber-infused water.
Despite its industrial-sounding name, there's nothing cookie-cutter about The Hair Factory. Creativity is key for their team of skilled stylists, who can coif hair into updos for special occasions, or revamp looks with edgy, multicolored mohawks. Haircare options, which are available for men, women, or children, top off a menu that also features make-up, tanning, and waxing services, which cater to clients with sensitive skin or commitment-phobic candles.
