The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
Southern Exposure's eclectic selection of merchandise embodies both literal and figurative interpretations of the term "bling." Glittering pieces of jewelry by brands such as John Wind and La Hola decorate wrists and earlobes with both modern and vintage accessories. Rhinestoned patterns coat iPhone and iPad cases to personalize personal electronics, and the colorful shapes and designs on loaves of Primal Elements soap bring interior decorating themes into bathroom territory. Patrons can also gild their physical forms with spray-tanning or teeth-whitening treatments at Southern Exposure's in-house beauty salon. The boutique also plays host to events such as tailgate parties and meet and greets with Santa Claus, where children can put in requests or lodge complaints about last year's gifts.
Rum138 combines every mermaid's favorite things: beautiful hair and beautiful water. Part paddle-sports rentals, part salon services, the hybrid business covers a wide array of needs. Customers can rent a kayak or canoe and explore the Sante Fe River—Rum138 will drop them off at the river's edge and pick them up—or stop in for a professional cut and color with licensed cosmetologist Merrillee. Then customers can grab an ice cream or soda from the snack shop.
Under the guidance of owner Patrician Hoffman Ratliff, the stylists and aestheticians at Serendipity Salon have mastered more than the basic hair and nail treatments. They also specialize in cutting-edge techniques, including services that correct hair loss, galvanic facials that improve the efficacy of serums working into the skin, and body treatments that break down cellulite formations. And even though these beauty treatments border on the scientific, they still manage to relax guests, much like a robot vacuum that also massages feet.
It may seem impossible to bottle sunshine, but staff members at Wolff Tan's six locations have been aiming to do just that for more than 16 years. Besides stocking shelves with salon-quality tanning products and moisturizers, they help guests re-hue in standup and traditional UV tanning beds outfitted with onboard air showers and stereos. UV-free Mystic tanning booths coat clients in a choice of three levels of ray-free color, from a subtle glow to a gold deeper than Midas' philosophical works. During customized airbrush spray-tan sessions, technicians use handheld devices to shade and contour curves and define muscles onsite or offsite in homes or offices.
