Island Sun's staff of skin experts is devoted to the safe, customized pampering of each client's pores and pigments. In addition to offering three levels of bed tanning to facilitate totally tailored finishes ($8–$19.99 per session, many packages also available), the salon offers UV-free sprayable sun services if you prefer sun showering to sunbathing ($42–$45 per session). Spray tanning sessions at Island Sun only take 60 seconds, meaning you can get golden in less time than it takes your friends to fasten their gladiator sandals before hitting the beachside arena. The salon uses the top-of-the-line VersaSpa sunless tanning system to deliver streak-free, natural-looking results.
To ensure that each skincare, massage, makeup, or hair-removal service is as enriching as possible, the staff at Pure Aesthetics Boutique Day Spa cares for clients using primarily organic skincare products. Exfoliating facials scuff away dead skin to reveal underlying superhero masks and younger-looking complexions, and a lineup of waxing services de-fuzz corporeal locales from brows to legs. Because the spa's main focus is customer satisfaction, the team even accommodates appointments outside of normal hours.
At Renew You Medical Spa and Laser Therapy, advanced technology coincides with practiced human precision. Using Dermaware skin care products, board-certified physicians and licensed aestheticians harness the beautifying capacity of pulsed light to perform many of their treatments, which range from blemish-clearing skin-rejuvenation sessions to laser hair removal. They cast different IPL beams over legs to keep unwanted veins from branching out further, thus necessitating the growth of a second heart in your knee. Their nonlaser services include facials and exfoliating rounds of microdermabrasion, which soften fine lines and encourage collagen production for firmer features.
The staff informs clients about their treatment options with free consultations, and often schedules appointments the same day. For aftercare and general maintenance, they keep Neocutis skin products on hand.
A zebra-print canvas painted with the words “To Dye For” bedecks the salon walls of Angel Melito’s hair suite with the same name. Beneath its pink-and-white stripes, clients receive traditional cuts, color, and updos using various salon-trusted products from the likes of Sudzz. Alternatively, they can elect for a modern straightening treatment or a text-message breakup with old split ends.
Salon Maia owner Melissa Maia and makeup artist Kelly LeBlanc specialize in making brides' wedding-day visions a reality. The duo performs on-location, preceremony transformations and has collaborated on bridal showcases for New Orleans Bride magazine. Within the magazine's pages, Maia and Leblanc have offered tips for brides-to-be, such as trying out a variety of lipstick colors, deep-conditioning hair six weeks before the wedding, and securing updos with a hairspray that is specifically designed to repel rice.
Within the art-covered, bright blue and white walls of the salon itself, Maia and her team of stylists nourish clients' hair with high-quality products. They use the Pureology and Redken lines to cleanse, condition, and color, and the sought-after Agadir Argan oil spray treatment to repair and protect damaged strands.
