Luxury seldom looks as easy as it does inside Rambha Day Spa and Salon. The 6,000-square-foot space encompasses four expansive spa suites, where staffers perform hairstyling, massages and facials, makeup applications, and nail services. These are all interconnected by an elegant foyer, where a bling chandelier and a soothing floor-to-ceiling waterfall set the tone for indulgences to come. The salon’s menu is brimming with services that range from hair removal and aromatherapy bodywork to cut and color services with Redken and Matrix products.
Simplicity helps evict wily follicle lodgers with state-of-the-art hair-razing equipment. Painlessly pulverize strands from the upper lip, chin, back or front of neck, brow, ears, bikini line, or underarms with concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting follicles out of their skin homes with laser wavelengths and candy. Simplicity's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe, fast, and effective treatment, while eliminating about 90% of the pain commonly associated with laser hair removal.
As the name implies, Active Lifestyle Medical dedicates itself to helping patients live energetic, pain-free lives. To do so, they combine the skills of doctors who practice conventional medicine, and chiropractors and acupuncturists who view the body holistically. These two philosophies work elbow to elbow to treat a range of conditions from alleviating pain to promoting sharper mental function.
Stephanie Schmidt opened Verde Salon with a commitment to using only upscale natural and organic products. Even the salon itself was built on eco-friendly standards—Schmidt worked with a LEED–certified architect, who employed nontoxic stains and paints and set up the studio for water and power conservation. And ever haircare and waxing service follows suit, commencing with a spread of organic coffee and tea accompanied by dark chocolate. Stylists then turn to the scalp, pampering it with nontoxic formulas that add shine and color to hair without stripping it of its fortitude or appeal to baby primates.
New Horizons' experienced staff pampers visiting epidermises with extensive skincare knowledge and cutting-edge procedures. An initial consultation (a $50 value) utilizes Clarity Pro analysis to scrutinize the condition and needs of tired hides, allowing for a personalized treatment regimen. Two vibradermabrasion sessions (a $120 value each) shake deadbeat surface cells from their freeloading roosts, leaving exquisite exteriors that appear smoother and more radiant. This process can also improve the absorption of topical skin products and compliments from strangers. Vibradermabrasion eschews the painful lasers employed by some skin treatments and Bond–villain-managed spas, instead opting for small vibrating paddles. A series of up to five treatments might be necessary to produce optimal results.
Most of the time when kids go to get their hair cut, they're lucky if they're able to watch a movie they've seen a thousand times or play with the single toy the salon keeps on hand. But even that doesn't generally happen. And because most salons don't bother to entertain kids, haircuts can be a difficult thing for them to sit through.
Yet, when kids go to Snip-Its, they get an adventure. Staffers first hand kids a Snip-Its Adventure Club card, and then invite them to sing along with the salon's own cast of animated characters. There's Curly Comb, the adventurous Flyer Joe Dryer, and the group's leader, Snips, an anthropomorphized pair of scissors with a shock of brown hair. This same crew stars in computer games and activities that kids can play at each salon station, which dazzle eyes with more bright colors than a car covered in Lisa Frank stickers.
While their clients explore imaginative worlds, stylists use a proprietary line of natural and allergen-free products to create buzz cuts and bobs. At the end of the process, kids visit the Magic Box. The enchanted device awards kids a prize in exchange for a swatch of hair. On special occasions, stylists can also photograph a baby's first haircut or transport girls to Tinseltown during a Hollywood Party.
In order to make every salon experience exciting for kids and relaxing for adults, Snip-Its partners with Autism Speaks and trains stylists to work with kids with autism.
