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.
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.
Pure Beauty Lounge owner Pamela works alongside cosmetologists, nail technicians, an aesthetician, and a massage therapist as they unleash soothed sighs and newfound beauty. Brushes flit across nails in manicure chairs, and a massage room in sage and burgundy hues offers privacy during kneading sessions. The massage therapist heats smooth stones, and aromatherapy oils release warm clouds of soothing scents like a soup made from love letters. The staff performs skin-refreshing facials and body wraps, and a hydrotherapy capsule bed with a water-jet massage and full-body steam bath purrs and hisses over a chorus of calm exhalations.
From custom-blended mineral makeup to makeover parties, Enhance Your Beauty does just what its name suggests. Facials target acne, aging, and other skin concerns with the help of all-natural minerals or firming creams. To create custom-blended foundation, blushes, or bronzers, trained makeup artists work with individuals to find the perfect blends for making faces a flawless canvas. Spa parties include mini makeovers for kids; Sweet 16 parties include makeovers and makeup lessons—with martinis and makeovers for the adults.
At Flawless Designs, dark wood ceilings and minimalist decor keep the focus down where it belongs: at mirror level. That's where clients sit back and enjoy haircuts, styles, and color treatments performed by expert staff. Like the ideal job candidate fresh out of college, the staff has more than 25 years of experience, including some in New York City. Hair extensions, waxing, and updos round out their list of beauty-boosting services.
