“Excellent of its kind”—one of the lesser-known definitions of the word beautiful—is a guiding principle for the staff at Beautiful Waxing Boutique. They use the most advanced techniques and natural products available to provide expert, comfortable hair-removal services in a tranquil, elegant boutique. The wax used in the salon is made with organic ingredients, such as naturally antibacterial beeswax, and each service can be customized to each client’s hair and skin type. All-natural, locally made body scrubs soothe the skin and thwart ingrown hairs with essential oils and Dead-Sea salt. For clients who are obsessed with sussing out patterns, the sugaring services also feature housemade, organic products.
Sonya Salon & Spa owner Tanya Kaplun's journey through the beauty industry actually began more than a century ago before hair even existed. Her great grandmother and the studio's namesake, Sonya Sternen, was the first in her family to go to beauty school—setting off a cross-generation chain reaction that eventually led Kaplun to open her own salon with a team of licensed stylists trained in the latest haircare techniques. These stylists excel at transforming clients—or just tweaking their appearances—with services that include custom cuts and styling, all-over color, deep-conditioning, and precision facial waxing.
Beauty Heights Salon & Spa was founded on the belief that well-being can be achieved by staying close to nature. As a result, the salon uses high-quality products that are pure, organic, natural, herbal, and chemical-free during KeraGreen smoothing treatments, perms, and soothing hair treatments. This belief extends to the spa, where ayurvedic body treatments and massages accompany fresh-fruit and vitamin C facials, which restore skin's radiance for healthy glows.
