The sisterly squad of cosmetologists at The Cat's Meow employs its 20 years of experience and airbrush spray tanning to bronze bodies in tropical tones. Enter the bilevel beauty bastion, where an experienced specialist strikes skin with gentle sprays that darken skin without dunking bodies in industrial vats of coffee or exposing them to harmful UV rays. Postspray, freshly glazed guests bask in the golden-hued splendor of a natural looking tan for up to 10 days. While visiting the family-owned space, nosh on a light lunch and beverage styled by Break Point Coffee Co. and available on-site for an additional $10.
The Cat's Meow
If the atmosphere inside The Cat's Meow strikes first-time visitors as particularly familial, the reason may be that the salon’s proprietors share more than aesthetic expertise—all three of them are sisters. For more than 20 years, Melissa Raynak, Pixie Melton, and Meghan Mowbray—along with their team of aestheticians and nail technicians—have pampered skin and nails with treatments that range from basic facials and express pedicures to all-inclusive spa-day packages. In each of their skin-therapy treatments, the spa’s aestheticians employ professional products that eschew mineral oil, lanolin, and allergens such as gluten to ensure that skin responds positively. Armed with bottles of OPI polish and paraffin wax, they turn their attention to fingers and toes to soften calluses and fluff nail beds.
