Eclipz Hair Studio Spa is a full-service beauty oasis whose mani-pedi maven has been sprucing cuticles and doting on nail beds for more than 25 years. Pampering begins with a beguiling sugar scrub, just rough enough for bad-boy-loving dry skin cells to pack up and run away with it. Hydration, relaxation, and Halloween ensue, with hand masks and a pedal-paraffin treatment that envelops feet in a cocoon of warm waxen bliss. Eclipz also provides myriad hues of OPI polishes to swathe convex keratin caps in luxurious coats of pigmented polish.
At Talk of the Town A Salon, a cast of hairstylists, skin specialists, and nail technicians beautifies patrons from cowlick to cuticle. Talented stylists wield scissors or chainsaws to cut off overgrown lengths and shape strands into elegant coiffures, and beauty experts custom-design facials to fit individual skin concerns. In the nail corner, technicians indulge hands and feet with relaxing spa manicures, and embellish digits with colorful Shellac gel that lasts for up to two weeks or acrylic fills.
Whether smoothing away acne or fine lines with an executive facial or crafting trial updos for brides-to-be, the staff at Jbraun Salon Spa, previously called the Indigo Salon, aims to treat every client like a VIP. Scissors and clippers clean up the unruly manes of men, women, and kids, and Brazilian blowout treatments tame frizz using a formula lauded by celebrities such as Nicole Richie. Once strands are looking smooth and sleek, faces get ready for their close-up with a Red Carpet facial, and nails express their own inner Beyonc? or Lady Gaga with a Minx manicure and pedicure. Private rooms give salon superstars a quiet place to escape the spotlight, relax with a soothing Swedish or deep-tissue massage, or practice awards-show acceptance speeches.
In Aussie Tan Tanning Salon’s primary-color salon, clients bronze to even hues with SunStar UV-tanning beds and Norvell spray-tan solutions. The salon stocks its facility with a trio of standard beds, including a standup booth and a high-intensity bed, each of which helps patrons gradually build up a seamless bronze hue with UV light. Salon aestheticians administer Norvell spray tans, employing a hand-held airbrush to meticulously gild bodies until they achieve the color made famous by hot crossed buns.
To further enhance tans, the salon's shelves are stocked with a supply of Designer Skin and California Tan accelerating lotions, which help clients build and sustain deep golden hues while rehydrating skin with tropical-scented creams. Add contrast to your face's new bronze look with BleachBright LED teeth-whitening services, which brighten smiles in 20-minute intervals—enough time to sit down and really think about all the teeth-staining soda and black ink you've consumed.
Tucked inside Quality of Life Medical & Research Center, a 7,800-square-foot medical facility, Quality Aesthetics' certified laser specialist Loida Fraijo and Michelle Lind draw on years of experience as they revive worn complexions. They aim to help clients reclaim youth by using clinical-strength skincare products as well as all-natural, vitamin-infused DeVita Rx products and laser technology in a menu of skin-tightening services, micropeels, and acne treatments. Whether performing a photo facial rejuvenation, tattoo removal with an UltraLight-Q laser, or Zerona body-contouring treatment, Fraijo begins with a free consultation and ends by having her magic mirror revise who it considers the fairest of all.
