Instead of just focusing on the physical, esthetician Tanya Khounphachansy incorporates a holistic approach to her work—one that has served her well for 17 years. Her belief that the body, mind, and spirit are intertwined and should be cared for equally is reflected in her selection of services. Within her tranquil confines, she wields natural products such as papaya enzymes and honey as she helps her clients de-stress and rejuvenate through facials and mani-pedis instead of throwing rocks at the windows of abandoned warehouses.
Sunrise Salon Tan & Spa's bronzing experts do more than just clean up after their glow-seeking clientele. The indoor tanning consultants earn their title by helping clients choose the proper bed, booth, or spray-tan session, hand-selecting options based on their skin type, desired hue, and the amount of time they're willing to dedicate to tanning. All of the spa's beds max out at 12 minutes, allowing guests to adopt a golden glow in roughly the same amount of time it takes to unlace a giant’s high-top sneaker. To complement newly shaded physiques, the salon also offers hairstyling, nail design, and facial waxing, as well as therapeutic massage to help relax bodies too busy to actually make it to the beach.
Hairstylist Jennifer Alkhouri invites clients into Salon Ambience where she transforms manes using Enjoy and Redken products. Before snipping and shading strands, Jennifer employs a thorough consultation to help her understand each client's beauty goals, their personality, and the celebrity hairstyle that frightens them the most. Clients have nothing to fear in her chair, however––to ensure customers leave happy, Jennifer stays up to date on the latest trends and techniques by attending continuing education courses.
