Helmed by beauty-industry veteran Melissa Keppel, Aprile Salon embellishes coiffures with hair-prettifying services. Mane metamorphoses begin with a hair-cleansing shampoo that lifts away grime and washes out cracker crumbs left by shoulder-perched parrots. In the 60–90 minute highlighting session, the stylist enhances natural hues with Wella hair-coloring products, adding eye-catching bursts to once-uniform hair tone. After chromatic transformations, a style and finish prepare heads for reentry into the outside world, leaving 'dos looking more alluring than hypnotic, snake-fashioned wigs.
LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
For the staff at Nail Division, manicures and pedicures are an art form. While they perform traditional nail services, they also punch up digits with acrylic nails in a cornucopia of designs, such as glitter, flowers, and multihued stripes. Meanwhile, nail piercings add intrigue to fingers and complement the widespread trend of earlobe polishing.
Instead of asking patrons to go out of their way and drive to a massage studio, the licensed massage therapists of Aesthetic Bodyworks Mobile Massage relieve tension through sessions in the comfort of each client's home. Beyond traditional Swedish and deep-tissue modalities, they can rejuvenate the senses with aromatherapy essential oils and erase chronic aches with Japanese finger-pressure techniques during shiatsu massages. The team also provides the relaxing entertainment during Ladies Night In parties or the Mega Party package, where therapists dole out 5- to 10-minute chair massages for a minimum of 50 people or one 50-person conga line.
Richard Kroll has been training top-notch stylists for more than 45 years, serving as a national style director for Wella while primping and pampering clients at his Total Image Salon & Day Spa. Coiffure artistes tailor looks to suit each visitor's facial features, hair texture, and home architecture with a variety of salon services. Haircuts include a wash, condition, and personalized-styling session and Wella colors are customized to compliment skin tones ($32 for men, $50 for women). Faces glow and eyes pop when hairs flaunt highlights ($90+ for full head) or lowlights ($65+) instead of monster-spooking nightlights. The salon also offers a number of hair replacement services for those with thinning manes, including complimentary consultations and specialty wigs for guests receiving chemotherapy ($700+).
