Inside The Luxury Box's modern shop, scruffy appearances become smooth under the care of classic barbering services and a shave performed with a hot-towel straight razor. Scissor snips tame feral follicles as a stylist fashions locks into contemporary styles. Warm towels enwrap faces using heat and gushy pet names to soften rigid hairs before a straight-edge razor glides effortlessly across the skin. Each barber chair hosts a flat-screen TV to distract clients while their hair evolves into the hair of their future. Pre-man-pampering waiting areas swallow customers in the comfortable bellies of luxe leather chairs, while complimentary beverages hydrate parched palates and sports memorabilia hangs on exposed-brick walls to stoke debates about whether data analysis should still be considered a sport.
Helmed by a beauty-industry veteran with more than a decade of sunless-tanning experience, SoBella Salon & Spa bronzes skin with high-powered tanning booths and FDA–approved spray-tan solution, bestowing golden glows that rival those of glow-in-the-dark graham crackers. Skilled tress tamers shape manes and coat them in shine-boosting keratin treatments, as aestheticians vanquish unwanted hair with a panoply of waxing services.
Indulge Salon & Spa's team of certified beauty boosters paint façades with a new hue during spray-tan services. After donning a cap and protecting hands and feet with a barrier cream, clients stand still as techs apply a fine mist of tanning tonic to bodies, which yields a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow without the harmful UV rays. Experts suggest that clients avoid sources of water, such as showers, swimming pools, and the interiors of camel humps for at least six hours post-spray-tan for longer lasting results. Indulge Salon & Spa swaddles patrons in a swanky atmosphere draped in glowing chandeliers and rich russet hues.
An air of refinement and sophistication radiates from Impulse Hair Salon’s sun-drenched interior where billowy curtains hang above sleek, wood floors and against garden-green walls. Floor-to-ceiling mirrors reflect a row of black styling chairs, which swivel and rise at the hands of talented hairstylists who wield products by Moroccanoil, Joico, and Big Sexy Hair to cut, color, and style locks. A secluded room shelters aestheticians who free bodies from itchy stubble using warm wax, tailor pampering facials to individual skin concerns, and transform exteriors into perfectly bronzed façades using UVA- and UVB-free tanning serums.
Alexandra Berta helps clients reinvent themselves inside Impulse Hair Salon. She fashions haircuts and helps 'dos look more vibrant with highlights and color. She also hydrates parched strands with coconut oil, instead of Gatorade, and smooths frizz for months with keratin straightening treatments. In addition to hair services, aestheticians at the salon offer spray tanning, waxing, and makeup applications.
