Sun Kissed Tanning Spa helps clients maintain their glows with tanning beds and custom-applied UV-free spray tans. Additionally, its staff administers spa services including body wraps and Twilight Teeth whitening treatments, which use the UV light of tanning beds to accelerate the whitening process.
Soothing music and aromatherapy essences waft through The Pedi Spa, a pedicure-focused spa in which clients can recline in leather chairs perched beneath fabric canopies and hanging lamps. As guests sip glasses of sparkling water, technicians attend to extremities with one of nine luxurious pedicures, soaking feet to soften coarse heels and unwind the mind like a ball of yarn crowd-surfing across a sea of massage therapists. Guests can also indulge digits with manicures.
Although the number of Angel Tips locations hovers around 60, there’s one thing you can count on at each of its salons: knowledgeable staff. That’s because every nail tech, massage therapist, and aesthetician learns the art of beautification at Angel’s Tips’ training center in Stamford, Connecticut. During mani-pedis, they dole out luxurious add-ons such as paraffin wax and hot-stone massage. They deeply cleanse skin during facials to reveal brighter, more even complexions, and rejuvenate bodies with tropical body scrubs and Vichy showers.
The staff, which includes a certified laser specialist, at Gentle Light Laser Center’s three clinics harness beams to address clients’ needs, inside and out. They specialize in aesthetic services, from resurfacing laser and photo facials to spider-vein- and hair-removal treatments. Teeth are also spotlighted during whitening services, which use LEDs to eliminate deep-set stains or graffiti from vengeful tooth fairies. The Center’s scope goes beyond cosmetic services as well, offering laser acupuncture and cold-laser therapy to relieve pain and assist healing.
Though the salon and spa is named after her, owner Kathy doesn't work alone. In fact, the hairstylist—who is also a trained massage therapist specializing in hot-stone and deep-tissue modalities—works alongside two other beauticians. Hairstylist Diane joins Kathy on the salon floor, where she showcases her apt knowledge of keratin treatments as well as constructing special-occasion hairdos. Together the duo reaches for Cures, GK Hair, and Paul Mitchell products as they create both classic and trendy hairstyles. Back in a private spa room, aesthetician Karina deep cleanses pores with custom facials. When Karina is out on the salon floor, she reaches for cosmetics to doll up customers for weddings, date nights, and parties at private clown-only clubs.
