Minx Salon started out as a simple spray-tanning spot, but soon blossomed to include eyelash-extension services as well. The staff here devotes their full attention to both to ensure clients receive golden tans before capturing flutter-worthy lashes. Aside from facilitating these services, the staff teaches classes on becoming a professional eyelash technician, including application techniques, aftercare products, and micro-braiding techniques for special occasions.
• For $65, you get the Dr. Renaud facial makeover (a $130 value). • For $129, you get three laser hair-removal sessions (up to a $285 value). Mi Casa's expert staff make over faces and smooth away unwanted hair in a 3,000-square-foot spa. During Dr. Renaud's expertly designed makeover, clients relax in included robes and slippers as dermis aficionados thoroughly analyze skin and apply a cosmetic peel that leaves faces as pure as a soft-spoken golden goose. A hydrating serum replenishes parched pores, and a Lumilift mask smoothes, lifts, and tightens face canvases. Skilled hands deftly paint skin in complexion enhancers packed with horse chestnut to decongest heads and bolster microcirculation. Finally, mascara thickens eyelashes and a Diva lip-plumping balm renders mouths ready to kiss nearby puppies.
Though the services provided at Vanish Laser and Beauty Central Inc. are high-end, the studio maintains a down-to-earth feel as experienced technicians keep an open line of communication with clients from the first complimentary consultation to their last beauty treatment. By consulting with clients, technicians are able to formulate a clear plan for beautification, which can include diamond-tip microdermabrasion, Aura White teeth-whitening treatments, vein removal, and green tea–infused It Works! body wraps that detoxify the body and firm the skin. Customers also can obtain clearer complexions with the aid of advanced intense-pulsed-light lasers, which work double time as skin is inundated with heated wavelengths that destroy hair at the root, purge dead skin cells, and sometimes grant superpowers.
Relaxation meets beauty at Delicate Care Spa and Laser Center, where licensed professionals treat skin and body to a wide range of pampering services. In the spa, aestheticians glaze faces with organic concoctions, from Hungarian products by Eminence to fresh herbs and spices. OPI polish tops off digits in the nail arena, where techs spoil hands and feet with paraffin wax, exfoliating scrubs, and sandals made of birthday cake. The med spa's technicians permanently laser away hair follicles from the body, limbs, and face, and perform hydrofacials to remedy oily and dry skin.
At Merle Norman, the pampering begins even before the treatments do. The moment clients walk in, they're charmed by the music and soothing fragrances that pervade the spa. That's the first chance clients get to consider their many spa treatment options, such as manicures, facials, waxing, IPL facials, and laser hair removal. Airbrush makeup is also available, as are makeup lessons that impart the secret techniques of makeup artists. Whole-body treatments, such as tanning, leave bodies with an all-over glow that's far more cost-effective than hiring a spotlight operator to follow you around all day.
MVP Men’s Salon embraces a no-nonsense approach to male maintenance. Exposed pipes lend an industrial chic vibe to the space, punctuated by high ceilings, glossy chrome finishing, and red hanging lamps. During trims, clients unwind in jet-black leather club chairs as stylists work in high-end products from American Crew. And prior to snip sessions, guests can take advantage of complimentary Wi-Fi or watch on one of many flat-screen LCD televisions that double as punching boxes for today's modern, reckless man.
