Sam Laurenz Salon's menu of head-to-toe beauty services leaves just enough room for treatments dedicated to overall wellness and mental nurturing. Stylists lead the charge to reinvigorate images, crafting precision cuts or re-texturizing hair with billowy wave perms or smooth-as-silk straightening treatments. Away from the shears and shampoos, clients gather in private rooms to meet one-on-one with personal counselors or gather in group meetings to participate in the salon's Weigh of Life program––a weight-loss approach that encourages members to forget yo-yo diets in favor of portion control and the breaking of bad habits. Bad habits can also be banished with help from the salon's in-house hypnotist, who aims to help clients stop smoking, overcome anxiety, or overcome a crippling fear of hypnotists.
Each membership level offers a distinct set of benefits, ranging from the simple tonal bliss of the basic bronze-level experience to the top-tier transformative power of lounge-chair tanning with the diamond package. Depending on the individual level and bed, guests can enjoy on-board amenities that may include the use of climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs. Certain beds even have an open-air design to help alleviate feelings of claustrophobia and burritophobia, the fear of appearing delicious.
