At Jan’s Laser Hair Therapy, technicians aim to transform thinning wisps into lustrous heads of hair by targeting scalps with FDA safety-approved low-level laser light therapy. During treatments, laser light energizes cells and stimulates circulation, helping to stimulate hair growth and create strands that are thick and strong, like a stone tablet dictionary. As the laser diodes set to work during the 30-minute, semiweekly sessions, clients can relax and read books or magazines. And after each session, clients can resume everyday activity with little to no downtime required.
At Refresh Center for Wellness & Cosmetic Therapy, there’s an on-staff specialist for almost every aesthetic need. Two registered nurses perform Botox and dermal-filler injections, and two Xtreme Lashes stylists apply extensions to peepers. The staff also includes licensed massage therapists and makeup artists, all of whom make use of green products free of parabens, artificial dyes, sulfates, and cooties. At the helm of the ship is Dr. Afser Shariff, a board-certified surgeon tasked with overseeing all noninvasive cosmetic procedures.
At Untamed Salon's design-conscious space, clients can fulfill their beauty needs with natural products. Zebra-printed curtains create an exotic backdrop behind extra-large mirrors, which allow clients to watch as stylists snip dos, paint locks with ammonia- and PPD-free hues, or defrizz strands with CHI Enviro's smoothing system. Natural products are used during other services, too. For example, exfoliating sugar scrubs accompany mani-pedis, detoxifying peppermint and seaweed body wraps slim physiques, and organic Fake Bake spray tans bronze bodies.
The hairdressers at Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy may be students, but they undergo plenty of training before they hit the salon floor. In fact, by day two of their cosmetology schooling, they perform their first haircut—on a mannequin, of course. In the salon, they work under the watchful eye of experienced, licensed instructors and put their acquired skills to use. Their services include hairstyling—haircuts, deep-conditioning treatments, highlights, all-over color, updos—as well as waxing, manicures, and pedicures.
Miracle Salon & Medi Spa operates under the direction of Donna Wells, a skilled technician who uses laser power to vanquish blemishes and unwanted hair from skin. Donna corrects complexions with facial rejuvenation treatments and casts laser wavelengths at follicles to destroy unwanted hair on a range of bodily areas excluding the tongue. The spa also includes the services of Dr. Janice Bright, who is the spa's medical director and its botox specialist.
The friendly, upbeat stylists and nail technicians at Reflections By Design have settled into their current location for the past three years, and they've got their hair and nail services down to a science. They use a wide variety of beauty products to sculpt their custom dos, and they can outfit fingertips with original nail-art designs such as flowers, polka dots, or the molecular structure of a favorite food.
