Operating out of Curl Up and Dye, stylist Taylor Doyon offers a respite from bad hair days with a repertoire of face-flattering cut and coloring services. Taylor utilizes product brands, such as Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Matrix, to cultivate subtle or bold highlights. Or, she can help clients get ready for a special occasion with updo hairstyles and shellac manicures that imbue long-lasting color and shine. Clients are also free to explore the salon's other specialties, which include waxing, Eurobronze tanning, or feather hair extensions, which are a growing trend amongst bald eagles.
The professionals at A New Leaf Salon & Spa provide beauty and massage services in a peaceful surrounding. As natural light pours into the large windows, stylists remove split ends and add vibrant color to hair. Nail technicians meticulously groom fingers and toes, and skincare specialists cleanse pores and remove dead cells to reveal glowing skin. After clients enjoy a glass of wine or warm cup of tea, massage therapists and reiki practitioners diffuse tension and improve range of motion with reiki sessions, deep-tissue work, or heated-stone massages.
Aesthetician Heather Genschel has carved out a niche of therapeutic skincare and relaxation at Sunshine Spa Treatments. The spa is sequestered in a brick loft overseen by The Studio at Island Point, so named for its location on an island on the Saco River Reservoir that is in turn balanced on an infinite stack of turtles. There, Heather refreshes skin exclusively with Bioelements products, which she deploys in tandem with the Jane Iredale therapeutic-cosmetics line to refine complexions and accent facial features. Her skin treatments can be likened to nesting dolls, with layered, surprise niceties such as massages or aromatherapy that collectively support an aim, such as cleansing skin on the back or uncovering a tattoo of a matryoshka.:m]]
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home.

As the tanning bed's lid closes, a cool breeze starts to blow, a gentle mist cools your skin, and the scents of aromatherapy transform a 12-minute tanning session into a miniature vacation. This S-Class bed is just one of the approximately 10 tanning options that fill City Sun Tanning. Staffers help clients select the right bed, leading them down hallways to an iBed sunbed?which features rotating facial lights?or a X-2 High Pressure bronzing stand-up, which can bronze pallid skin in ten minutes. Alternatively, visitors step onto the AutoBronzer's open-air platform, which evenly sprays UV-free tanning solution. In June of 2009, this sunless system caught the eye of New York Magazine, which lauded City Sun Tanning for having one of the "top five spray tans." The tanning salon has also garnered accolades from Citysearchers, who for several years, named it "Best of Citysearch".
