Greenleaf Waxing Studio strives to make waxing as painless as possible with an azulene-based soft wax and a clean, peaceful environment. Azulene, a natural anti-inflammatory, works well with coarse hair, sensitive skin, and cactus arms. In addition to depilating women’s eyebrows and bikini areas, aestheticians work with male clients to deal with unsightly back hair.
Licensed aesthetician Carol Zubrin and her talented team beautify frontispieces and relieve stress with cleansing and soothing treatments. Staffers wield organic products as often as possible during services in an effort to provide an all-natural, noninvasive approach to skincare. The healing facial, accentuated by an indulgent hot-stone massage, sloughs off dead skin cells and cleanses pores deeply with a minimal extraction. The one-hour Reiki and sound healing session takes advantage of a lighter-handed approach, with practitioners placing hands on or slightly above patients' fully clothed bodies in order to improve energy flow and balance.
Equipped with bulb-powered tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and airbrush-savvy aestheticians, Sunlounge Tanning Studio & Spa imbues patrons with golden radiance and rejuvenates skin with a full complement of spa treatments. Four different tanning beds house varying configurations of skin-bronzing bulbs that evenly match skin tone to that of a favorite celebrity or gingersnap cookie. VersaSpa spray booths coat occupants in a mist of one of three tanning hues, which cling to the skin for up to 10 days, and nearby aestheticians and massage therapists can knead away tension from newly bronzed skins. The sustainably designed studio, lined with bamboo walls, draws some of its energy from solar panels.
Acclaimed products line the shelves at each Planet Beauty boutique, many chosen by customer request. Skincare solutions by Dermalogica ($3–$180) pamper pelts without artificial colors, fragrances, or mineral oil, and the invigorating essential oil applications of L'Occitane ($3–$54), much like fast food's imported potato delicacies, come straight from France. Seekers of sleeker, silkier hair can peruse deep-conditioning Moroccanoil products ($20.95–$41) or explore the array of shampoos, conditioners, and styling solutions of Bed Head ($9.95–$39.95).
When D'Arte Salon & Spa’s sliding french doors are open, the sunlight that splashes the tiled floors and yellow walls is ample. Amid this naturally lit setting, stylist Autumn Koury and the salon’s all-female staff seat guests at styling stations with circular mirrors and wooden chests and begin cutting, coloring, or shaping dos. For body plumage, the salon offers waxing treatments, which leave skin surfaces smooth because they’re covered in wax.
