A step inside Beauty Lane Salon & Tanning leads to an airy studio, where natural sunlight streams through windows to illuminate blond-wood floors, leather furnishings, and red accent walls. With this modern space for their inspiration, the stylists here transform their clients' hair through trendy cuts and bold applications of color—be it an all-over hue or the unexpected touch of bright blue feather extensions. Aestheticians, meanwhile, buff and polish nails to a new shine, and technicians oversee tanning sessions in stand-up airbrush booths and a UV tanning bed.
Before Kellie Asher got her state certification and was asked to perform makeovers on Fox News, she got her start applying stage makeup for the actors in her high school. Today, she calls upon all that experience to pamper guests of all ages with traditional and airbrush makeup applications. To ensure the face is a clean and healthy canvas, she also performs facials, chemical peels, and waxing services.
It’s all about color at Prestige Nails & Tans, Inc.—you can give your skin a sun-kissed glow or get glossy hues for your fingernails. For the former, the salon has 12 European high-intensity tanning machines, which yield dark, natural tones that mimic a day at the beach or an apprenticeship as a campfire marshmallow.
For nail services, Prestige’s technicians utilize Tammy Taylor, OPI, and CND products. The result: perfectly manicured acrylic, Shellac, or natural nails. During European Touch spa pedicures, clients relax in Relaxor heated massage chairs while their feet indulge in a warm, soothing soak. Prestige’s nail techs can also turn their attention to children for birthday parties, which foreshadow the pampered luxury that comes with being an adult.
A diverse staff of hair specialists and an aesthetician helps About U Salon beautify bodies with meticulous attention. Many staff members have decades of experience in the industry, which they use to clear skin with specialized facials and waxing sessions, as well as add depth to hair with highlights that mimic thin rivulets of rain on the solitary window of life. All services are performed with high-end products from brands such as Paul Mitchell, Mantra, and Joico.
Dr. Amy Brenner, a board-certified ob-gyn, and her trained staff tend to patients with custom gynecology, weight-loss, and aesthetic services. Complimentary beverages, such as tea and bottled water, and free WiFi await patients who sit on plush waiting room chairs before a registered nurse leads them back to a private treatment room. Patient education systems flicker across flat-screen TVs as techs revitalize minds and bodies with advanced treatments from skin-smoothing microdermabrasions to the body-slenderizing Cornerstone Wellness weight-loss program. Dr. Brenner and crew aim to inform each patient about all their treatments options, while ensuring customers feel as welcome as a soldier in a Norman Rockwell painting.
Customers can stay bronzed and buff year-round at Different Seasuns. Thirty tanning beds in eight different types bestow skin with a golden hue in private rooms painted with a tropical flair. The salon’s circuit-training center includes conditioning machines, weighted hula hoops, exercise balls, and free weights that work to sculpt freshly tanned muscles.
