Whether smoothing away acne or fine lines with an executive facial or crafting trial updos for brides-to-be, the staff at Indigo Salon Spa aims to treat every client like a VIP. Scissors and clippers clean up the unruly manes of men, women, and kids, and Brazilian blowout treatments tame frizz using a formula lauded by celebrities such as Nicole Richie. Once strands are looking smooth and sleek, faces get ready for their close-up with a Red Carpet facial, and nails express their own inner Beyoncé or Lady Gaga with a Minx manicure and pedicure. Private rooms give salon superstars a quiet place to escape the spotlight, relax with a soothing Swedish or deep-tissue massage, or practice awards-show acceptance speeches.
For more than 25 years, the friendly and knowledgeable staffs at seven locally owned Maui Beach Tanning locations have been helping clients deepen their skin tone and break through tanning plateaus.

The crew can also recommend which of more than 40 tanning lotions will best suit each customer's skin.
Valerie Williams began her career working in a doctor's office. She has always enjoyed helping her patients overcome health issues, but at Comfort at Fingertips, she trades prescriptions for the more natural benefits of touch therapy and manipulation. She treats patients with massage modalities such as lymphatic drainage, hot-stone therapy, and deep-tissue kneading, all of which work to dispel pain and persistent stress caused by retaking the SAT. Valerie also specializes in reflexology treatments, during which she manipulates nerves of the feet that correspond with systems throughout the body to combat stress, headaches, allergic reactions, and other ailments.

Her treatments range from relaxing hot-stone massages to shiatsu massage, which involves stretches and carefully applied pressure. Catherine also gives patrons tips on how to avoid back pain long after each visit and how to improve their posture—step one is to stop sleeping on a giant candy cane.
