At Solutions Skincare & Laser Center, husband-and-wife team Craig and Rachelle Hanson fuse medical-grade services with a spa atmosphere to help their clients defeat the aging process. For more than 15 years, the med spa’s aestheticians have helped boost clients' confidence and local mirror sales with a repertoire of skincare services that includes microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials.
Dr. James Kemmler and registered nurse Nancy Jenkins use medical-grade treatments to renew their clients’ skin. Microdermabrasion sessions and chemical peels work to diminish the appearance of scars, sun spots, and fine lines. Using Ultherapy, an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure, technicians can also lift the neck, chin, and brow. Fine lines also disappear with Botox cosmetic injections. To cap off beauty-enhancing services, clients can take home Latisse and apply it to their eyelashes for fuller- and darker-looking fringe.
Heralded in Tanning Trends magazine, True Colors Tanning introduces skin to advanced bronzing technologies at a number of Louisville-area and southern Indiana locations. Each of the five levels of standup and lie-down ultraviolet-tanning beds is equipped with specialized cooling systems and ergonomic surfaces to maximize client comfort. Alternatively, experienced staffers can apply airbrushed tans or spray tans by Australian Gold in the time it takes to count 180 seconds using a laser-guided system.
In as little as 12 minutes, patrons can bronze their bodies in Tanning Haven’s Matrix bed. It is outfitted with more than 22,000 watts and six facial tanners. Less intense tanning options, such as base beds and standup beds, are also available and allow clients to relax for up to 25 minutes each session. For those wanting a glow sans UV rays, an airbrush tan or dip in a bath of melted pennies does the trick.
Tangles offers a full range of hair services, as well as massage, waxing, and nail beauty-bolstering treatments. If your noodle nest needs a summery glow, Tangles will highlight it ($50+). If you don't like the way your noodles swirl together in their nest, Tangles can cut them ($20+ for women's haircut and $15+ for men) or reswirl them in a way that makes you feel content ($60+ for a perm). If your noodle nest already makes you feel content, Tangles will give you a manicure (starting at $20), pedicure (starting at $30), or one-hour massage ($60) to make your fingers, toes, and back content enough to match your highly contented hair. And, if you have a noodle nest where you shouldn't have a noodle nest, Tangles will wax it away ($10 for eyebrows).
Boasting an atmosphere of wavy mirrors and cozy pedicure chairs, Nail Stop’s full-service shop keeps finger armor looking healthy and clicking countertops with style. The french-tip gel manicure coats finger hats in a durable, liquid-gel gloss that retains its chip-free je ne sais quoi, even under shine-diminishing solar rays. The signature pairing of pink and white keeps nails from shifting to unsightly yellow and prevents dents commonly associated with oyster shucking and compulsive can opening. Don a pearly pair of Parisian back scratchers with a natural treatment that does not irritate sensitive or allergy-prone clients.
Hairstylist Danae Gibson thoroughly enjoys the sight of a dour coiffure as it transforms with a bold new hue or a trendy haircut. She shapes tresses inside Salon Solay by twirling them into delicate updos and slathering locks with flaxen highlights. In addition to hair services, she coats nails in resilient Shellac polish, prunes facial hair with wax, and purifies pores with relaxing facials—or as the Man in the Moon calls them, "spacials." While she works, her guests relax amid gray walls, checkered floors, framed art, and amply cushioned chairs.
