Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
The nailcare experts at Salon Deniz primp fingers and toes within the comforts of a full-service salon and spa. Standard manicure and pedicure services finely shape nails and curb cuticles until each pincher is read a bedtime story before being blanketed in a lustrous layer of stylish nail polish. The staff welcomes clients into a clean and bright studio, decked out with large mirrors and Romanesque pillars for entertaining solo reenactments of Julius Caesar. The Providence Business News featured the philanthropic staff for donating time to an annual fashion show held by the Children’s Shelter of Blackstone Valley.
The colorfully amenable staff at Divinity wield premium products as they conduct their craft with all gracious guests. Decorate and buff some deserving, unpolished digits with the mani-pedi, which pampers and refines fingers and toes while adorning them with selections from a rainbow's array of polish.
Nichole Soares, the owner of Salon De Nichole, views every head as a canvas and every hairdo as an artistic statement of beauty. She and her team style hair with that view in mind, trimming bangs, sides, and tops, carefully adding texture, and signing off with ribbons of color. Harnessing the power of Keratin Complex, they train locks to fall smoothly around the face without frizzing out or forming the highly offensive words "comb me." They offer services that fall outside the scope of hairstyling, too—waxing, for example, as well as facials, massage therapy, and beauty services for bridal parties.
Voted Best New Salon in 2010 by Rhode Island Monthly, Gloss and Glamour hosts an expert team of mane-managing stylists who instill some decorum in unruly hairdos with a wide range of scissorcentric services. Reveal an updated look for outdated driver's licenses by lopping locks with a women's haircut and styling ($40+). Beauty seekers can also treat hair to an updo ($50+) for elegant dinners and fancy trips to the post office, or they can turn frantic frizzes into a cascade of silky tresses with a blowout treatment ($25+). Regardless of the service, stylists work to ensure you end up with the hair of your dreams without the ensuing bedhead.
The nail technicians at Hair It Is pamper fingers and toes with relaxing manicures and pedicures. Each 30-minute stand-alone mani commences with a hand soak, then pushes back cuticles once they've softened and let down their guard. Files whittle nails into shapely ovals, squares, or rhombuses, and a lotion-laden massage hydrates thirsty wrists, palms, and knuckles. A fresh coat of polish gives fingertips a stylish new hue to match favorite outfits, a new car, or pet betta fish. A luxurious 90-minute mani-pedi combo applies the same treatments above to both mitten and sock residents, in addition to applying a soothing warming mask before the lacquer application.
