The stylists at Studio 6 Salon & Spa transform clients’ hair with cuts, colors, and other styling services. KeraSmooth keratin treatments leave locks sleek, and Forever Blonde coloring treatments lighten hair and make it grab people’s attention like a howler monkey in a library.
Salon C is a full-service salon that updates clients’ looks while bestowing them with personalized attention and complimentary beverages. The experienced and well-rounded staff—composed of Paul Mitchell educators and graduates of the Aveda Institute—keeps their skills current through continual education. Ever on the hunt for the most flattering looks, they begin each service with a thorough consultation that evaluates clients’ eye color, skin tone, and DNA.
On the spa side of the treatment menu, aestheticians use Dermologica skincare products to foster younger-looking facades, while waxing techs create hair-free surfaces. Makeup artists forge temporary or permanent enhancements, and nail techs add another dimension to fingers and toes with 3-D nail art.
Beautiville's licensed aestheticians bathe skin-cessories in soothing balms and a tranquil island ambience. Guests sip complimentary, organic Asantae coffee and gourmet Tea Forté tea in a clean lounge girded by aquamarine walls as they await their claw-coddling. During the next 60–80 minutes, a careful sculpting, buffing, and polishing transform nails and cuticles into scintillating helmets for crowd-pleasing fingerboard stunts and fearless line-toeing. The spa's appendage experts extend their love to skin with moisturizing lotions, a tension-deflating digit bath, and a hand and foot massage. For an additional charge, Beautiville offers childcare services while parents receive pampering.
Led by Pravina Kumar, a 22-year veteran of the beauty industry, the Threading Lounge staff uses its namesake technique to gently whisk away unwanted hair above the eyes and lip. Trained hands require a single cotton thread to perform the Asian technique, which isolates offending hairs without irritating the skin or accidentally flossing all the teeth. Threading requires no chemicals, sharp tools, or violent motions—clients simply relax into seats of plush, red cushions under the glow of a crystal chandelier. Threaded hair normally returns on the same timetable as waxed strands, and any length of hair may be jettisoned with the procedure, from peach fuzz to a yak's eyebrows.
Ocean waves lap against the white-sand lagoon along Oahu’s western shore, where palm fronds wave in the breeze and lush flowers bloom. This oasis sets the stage for the JW Marriott Ihilani, whose spa believes that the sea can heal and rejuvenate both body and soul. This philosophy leads to a bevy of tropical, ocean-inspired treatments: fresh Hawaiian seawater flows through water jets during a thalasso massage, Hawaiian ti leaves soothe skin in a wrap, and liquid-calcium seaweed pearls add luxury to facials. Even fitness sessions place guests right on the beach so they can jog in the ocean or do bicep curls with pineapples. Water and steam also ease tension in the sauna, steam room, and a Roman pool, whose artistic tile work evokes the empire.
The spa’s other elegant decor, accented by vases of flowers and fronds etched into glass or tiled into mosaics, subtly reflects the surrounding tropical paradise. Guests lounge amid the marble countertops and pristine white stone while wearing plush robes. While at the spa, they can also visit the full-service salon for quick blowouts or join a yoga class to prepare for their pretzel Halloween costumes.
