Rachel A. Klein-Szymanski, the owner of Blue Lotus Spa, sees her beauty outpost as a culmination of her past 30 years of work in the beauty industry. Blue Lotus incorporates everything Rachel is passionate about in the industry?skin treatments, massages, and a full suite of hair services including extensions and wigs. Regardless of what kind of service a client requests, though, Rachel and her staff pursue the same simple goal: they want people to feel great about themselves by the time they leave.
Cheri Herold, owner of Fountain of Youth Aveda Salon Spa, wields a lifetime of beauty-industry experience to motivate her multitalented staff to exceed client expectations. Plant-based products fuel facials, massages, and hair treatments with the anti-aging properties of lavender, sandalwood, and other pure, sustainably sourced herbs and flowers. Fountain of Youth also operates a salon apprenticeship program, which provides 2,000 hours of on-the-job training to promising young cosmetologists or ambitious mannequins.
Salon Beleza's stylists and aestheticians make beauty treatments interactive, allowing in-depth consultations to guide each appointment. In doing so, they make clients feel comfortable and confident. The beauty specialists perform standard salon services for hair, skin, and nails, as well as modern treatments such as airbrush spray tans. Aestheticians improve complexions with six types of facials, complementing these treatments with eyelash tints that eliminate the need to apply mascara or tickle squids.
Face, Skin & Body's waxing experts uproot unwanted follicles with precision and a gentle, personalized touch. Clients can choose to free their bikini area of clingy body hairs or bid adieu to upper-lip fuzz and happily arch a pair of perfectly shaped eyebrows. Waxing banishes follicles from the skin for longer lengths of time than shaving, allowing razors to return to their original role as manual lawnmowers.
Salon 22, a certified Matrix hair-color gallery, houses highly trained coiffurists who cut, color, and refashion head toppings with style-savvy grace and top-shelf products within vogue digs that sport exposed-brick walls. During the salon's signature cut and style, one of these talented stylists revamps lackluster manes, priming hair for dates, interviews, and black-tie shower-drain soirées. After scissors clear the follicular landscape of unfashionable split ends, a Total Treat conditioning procedure imparts strands with a touch-friendly smoothness. In addition to treating cranial canvases to a chic renovation, clients can opt to add a little prismatic pizzazz with a monochromatic-color package, or draw out the best assets of their follicles while protecting themselves from extraterrestrial thought control with highlight foils.
