A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The technicians at Skin Indulgence Studio specialize in both state-of-the-art and classic hair removal techniques for both men and women. A LightSheer Diode laser zaps hair during its growth phase in order to prevent it from sprouting. Waxing takes a more traditional and temporary route, stripping away hairs from the face, armpits, and bikini area so that they grow back softer and finer, unlike the coarse stubble that results from shaving or running kitchen shears across the skin?s surface. Waxing services can be done with both soft and hard wax depending on the sensitivity of the area. To further beautify clients, the staff also performs makeup applications, adds eyelash extensions, and tints brows and lashes. All services are performed in their clean and professional environment.
With more than 17 years of styling experience and slew of hair colour classes tucked behind her ear, Creative Touch Hair Salon’s Cathy Brown snips, shapes, and dyes locks with confidence. By analyzing her clients’ face-shapes, the deft cosmetologist can determine and suggest the most feature-flattering hairstyle and best-fitting top hat. Brown slings top-shelf products by Joico and Schwarzkopf as she infuses strands with deep-conditioning treatments, enhances colour with highlights, or adds bounce with perms. In addition to men's, women's, and children's cuts, the stylist also grooms hirsute brows and eradicates unwanted tufts from lips and chins with professional wax treatments.
Raj Singh opened Aaina Spa and Salon in 2006 to meet the demands of her bourgeoning clientele. Previously a salon owner for nearly a decade, Singh brought a backlog of experience, highly trained scissors, and a strong client base to her new endeavour. At Aaina Spa and Salon, Singh oversees certified aestheticians who help clients achieve a wide scope of aesthetic goals. Together, the hair and skin specialists aim to combine efficiency with quality. In the waiting room, cream walls reach toward a ceiling that's painted to resemble a blue sky with wispy clouds. Upon stepping through translucent curtains into the styling room, clients kick back for custom cuts, colours, and perms. Other beauty services include laser hair removal, massage therapy, tanning, and skincare treatments.
The nail artists at California Nails & Spa brighten fingertips with the latest gels and shellacs, as well as with traditional polish. Led by expert nail technician Quang Luong, the professionals enhance fingers and toes with every hue in the rainbow, from fire-engine red to the envious green of a four-leaf clover confronted by a 40-leaf clover. They ensure that manicures and pedicures last for weeks by using chip-resistant lacquers such as gel cured by UV light and solar nails, which need even fewer refills than typical acrylic nails. In addition to lavishing nails with bright colour, the aestheticians wax brows into elegant arches for raising in disdain at the unplucked unibrows of wooly mammoths.
