The professional nail technicians at Artizon Hair Studios decorate digits with an array of manicure and pedicure services. After patrons remove jewelry and scuba flippers, a professional nail technician lengthens lifelines with a full hand massage. Feet and hands steep in a relaxing soak before a foot exfoliation smoothes away the top layer of dead skin. To finalize the digit makeover, cuticles are shaped and buffed to a high shine in preparation for an application of polish in the patron's choice of color.
Alternatively, a French luxury mani-pedi supplements all the amenities of the express mani-pedi with a slew of additional cuticle-coddling treatments. A foot massage places hot stones between the toes, invigorating the senses without the unpleasant burns associated with vacationing in a volcano. A longer hand and foot soak in special, premium oil cultivates healthier skin, and an exfoliation treatment scrubs away dead cells. To complete the roughly 80-minute treatment, a French polish caps nails with a longer-lasting layer of color.
A trip to the islands is the most relaxing getaway. The staff at Java Hair Company strive to recreate that state of relaxation with a tropical atmosphere and a roster of beautifying services. Expert hair stylists snip clients' hair into face-flattering shapes, adding color and highlights to add dimension without using hairspray to sculpt it into a cube. Facials restore moisture to tired skin, and massages release tension and aches. The gel polish used in manicures resists chips for up to two weeks, and feet get scrubbed and lotioned up during pedicures.
The Mystic spray-tan booths at Hollywood Tans hydrate and tint skin for a sun-kissed look without exposure to damaging UV rays. The Mystic process mists the body with bronzers, moisturizers, and DHA, designed to tint skin with smooth and natural-looking color that can last for up to a week, about as long as a popsicle licked only once a day. Tanners can set the system's cartridge to one of four shades to customize their epidermal emblazoning, and the treatment yields instant results, imbuing the bodies of procrastinators with a last-minute glow in time for special occasions. In addition, the standup booths are easily accessible and convenient for those who prefer to bronze while sleepwalking.
