A staff page full of vintage-style clothes and hairdos clues newcomers into the vibe at Healthy Look Salon: playful, yet professional. This small salon has been around for more than 14 years, and its stylists deftly trim and color hair into new and classic looks. Their services cover highlights, keratin smoothing treatments, and extensions in addition to standard cuts, all of which take advantage of products from trusted names such as Unite and Redken.
In addition to snipping and styling hair, the team touches up nails with shellac and gel polishes. Their waxing treatments eradicate unwanted hair, whereas massages soothe sore muscles more effectively than just telling them to "shush." Skincare is also on the staff's radar, and their customized facials rejuvenate complexions with hydrating and skin-smoothing formulas.
After a day at Jungle Tan, visitors may look and feel like they've just returned from a tropical locale. The salon offers a fleet of beds in which hot bulbs emulate the effects of the sun's rays, dialed to four different levels of tanning intensity. Those seeking a UV-free tan can opt for the Evolv airbrushing system, a unique technology which uses warm air to help all-natural spray-tanning solutions sink into the skin's surface. Certified airbrush technicians customize the color to match each individual's skin type. Jungle Tan also nourishes skin and fosters relaxation with personal infrared saunas, steam-hydration therapy, aqua massages, and body waxing. Rounding out its cosmetic surfaces, the salon hosts professional teeth-whitening services and eyelash extensions.

In between haircuts, you can come in anytime and get the back of your neck cleaned up for free, since unsightly neck stubble is known to attract the unwanted attention of poltergeists, sandworms, and debt collectors.
