There are very few treatments that fall out of the beauty jurisdiction of Salon Le Rouge ’s stylists. They are, after all, equipped to snip and color hair, apply makeup, and spritz on natural-looking glows. And when they’re not busy topping digits with fume-free polish, they bring about soothing relief with facials and reflexology treatments.
At Sun Spa Salon, hairstylist Nicole Brungardt sculpts tresses into face-flattering shapes. Nicole is part of a team of seasoned stylists who primp tresses with haircuts and highlights, bronze skin with tanning booths, and keep their boutique stocked with handbags, flip-flops, jewelry, and animatronic doubles of their customers.
As part of the staff at Phenix Salon Suites, stylist Gabrielle Mayfield tends to clients' hair with services such as designer haircuts, Brazilian blowouts, and highlights. After each appointment, she advises guests on products for at-home haircare, recommending lines such as Biolage, DermOrganic, and Sexy Hair.
Brother and sister team Linh and Tam Nguyen train students in the art of hair, nail, and skin care at Advance Beauty College. Their student stylists demonstrate their talents at the college’s salon and spa, cutting and coloring coifs using Matrix products and pampering skin with Dermalogica products. Before facials, trainees give clients a complimentary skin-mapping analysis, aiming to ensure that treatments target problem areas from dry skin and fine lines to acne or bits of toilet paper glued to one’s cheeks. They also provide nail services and whether it’s a pedicure, shellac manicure, or nail-art application, techs use brand-new nail files, buffers, and orangewood sticks on each client.
The staff at Focus Medical Spa understands that no two patients are the same. That’s why an aesthetician, certified nurse, or board-certified doctor will design a treatment package to suit each client after a free consultation. Using products from Obagi, Dermagenetics, and the med spa’s own signature line, aestheticians treat wrinkles and blemishes with acne solutions, lift effect facials, and glycolic-acid peels. Laser technicians also use beams of light to remove spider veins and unwanted hair. The lasers have other functions, too; they remove signs of aging such as broken capillaries and dark pigment, and they make cool sounds when you tap them with a tuning fork.
