Founded by brother- and sister-in-law Brett and Suzanne Sauder, Taire Hair Salon Inc. aims to reinvigorate manes with the latest techniques and products. Creative director Brett graduated from the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London and continues to study with respected industry figures. Suzanne used her own extensive training to craft figure-skater's hairstyles for the US ice-skating trials that were both aerodynamic and unaffected by low scores from cynical judges. She has also achieved a personal goal by becoming only the ninth person in Philadelphia to earn the title of master hair colorist.
Stylists set to work on precision cuts, texturizing services, makeup applications, and other aesthetic tasks in Taire's sleek space. The studio is divided into two sections that are minimalist in design and spacious enough to comfortably entertain four clients at a time. The Sauder-led team employs the L'Oréal Professionnel line to transform color, such as an ammonia-free, virtually odorless Inoa formula that's invisible to all forms of radar.
Since opening in 1996 as a barbershop, Solaris Hair Salon has undergone a complete renovation and added women’s salon services, manicures, and spray tanning. Owners with more than 20 years in the beauty industry run the salon, where a team of stylists suits facial features and styling preferences when they render men’s, women’s, and children’s haircuts. They pull from a library of more than 500 hair colors; Chi Ionic’s shades are ammonia-free, and Clairol Professional color has a soy complex that conditions and adds shine to hair.
At the salon's manicure stations, nail technicians coat digits with regular or Shellac polish, and perform specialty manicures such as an anti-aging version with antioxidant-rich grapeseed oil and pomegranate exfoliant. The team also administers spray tanning from Fake Bake, which enriches skin with a paraben-free botanical blend that promises not to turn orange, like the chameleon you’re hiding in the grass.
Breyer Medspa treats clients to dazzling physical transformations with a stable of professional-strength body and skincare treatments that make use of both medical-grade products and laser technology. Under Dr. Michael Birnbaum, licensed aesthetician Tara pampers and perfects her clients' faces with microdermabrasion therapy and chemical peels that slough away layers of skin to reveal radiant complexions. For a treatment more intense than spa facials and less thorough than chemical peels, the medspa's medical-grade facials deliver skin-renewing results that go beyond traditional facials with deep-pore cleansing and polishing at the hands of an experienced aesthetician. With the use of an FDA-approved Cutera CoolGlide laser, technicians can realize their patients' dreams of hairlessness, vein removal, and wrinkle- or blemish-free skin by simply adjusting the settings on the versatile laser system. The medspa's carefully chosen laser uses longer wavelengths than its competitors to soothe the skin as it works to reduce hair or remake skin texture.
Smart Tan–certified managers oversee all the comings and goings at each Island Sun Tanning location as staff members help patrons shade shift with bronzing equipment and products by Devoted Creations and Designer Skin. UV beds cool skin with air-conditioning systems and calm the senses with aromatherapy mists. MP3-player docks increase the relaxation potential, allowing bodies to settle into the beds' contoured confines and listen to their favorite music or bedtime stories read by Morgan Freeman.
For patrons seeking sunless options, staffers utter secret passwords that open the doors of VersaSpa and Mystic Tan spray-tan booths, which leave bodies bronzed for up to seven days. Red-light-therapy sessions aim to firm and tone skin, and hydration stations combine steam, radiant heat, and liquid vitamins to extend the life of new tans.
When not reuniting bodies with their ideal shades of bronze, the caring crew has worked to fight hunger in the local community by collecting donated canned goods for Philabundance.
