Did somebody say “getaway?” After the past few years, the promise of a spring break vacay is more exciting than ever, but if it’s been awhile since you hit the road (or the skies), you may need a refresher — and we don’t just mean for travel destinations or packing tips! The start of spring is the perfect time to make like nature and reinvent yourself so you can bloom at your best as the weather warms up.
Whether you’re heading off on a tropical trip, planning a staycation, or simply want to channel some of that wanderlust from the comfort of your home, these are a few of our favorite ways to get that spring break buzz in your beauty routine.
Reveal your radiance and beat the blahs
Say goodbye to dry winter skin with exfoliating treatments designed to slough away rough patches and dull dead skin. In the spa, treat yourself to a peel or dermaplaning treatment or two to lift away the winter blahs and reveal more radiant, glowing skin. Take home a mask and scrub to keep the glow going at home. A signature pedicure treatment gets your toes in sandal shape (even if you’re sticking to snow boots for now) and provides deep exfoliation with two hot towel wraps — see ya, rough heels! If you’d like to change up your makeup game, book a session with one of our talented makeup artists to bring out your inner glow with new shades of blush, bronzer, and more from brands like Jane Iredale.
Wax it off
A trip to the beach isn’t complete without a little hair removal. No matter where you decide to bare, from a half leg to a full Brazilian, you’ll enjoy super smooth skin and the utmost care at the hands of your Cole’s esthetician. We even offer back waxing in case that’s something you (or your loved one, wink wink) is interested in. Get that teeny bikini or show-stopping one-piece ready!
Wash winter out of your hair
A cut, color, and style may feel obvious, but it’s one of the best ways to boost your look no matter what your spring plans are. Trim any dry winter split ends, restore shine and vibrance to your color, and emerge from the salon feeling like the beautiful butterfly you are.
Punch up the color
Nothing says spring break like bright, cheerful, vivid color. We’re not saying you have to dye your hair hot pink (though we’re here to help you if that’s your dream!), but changing up your go-to manicure shade or lipstick can really get you in the mood for springtime fun. Consider taking your hair color one step lighter for a brighter feel, trying a temporary color on lighter blonde shades for a pretty pastel moment, or welcoming the season in a vibrant orange or pink lip or shimmery gloss.
Get brow-raising results
The last thing you want to worry about on vacation is your brows. Reduce the fuss and keep them looking lush and groomed with a LUX Brow Lamination, which lifts, smooths, and shapes brows into full, fluffy arches. This service is currently only available in Burnsville and comes with a wax and tint. Don’t forget to tag us in your vacay selfies!
