Can you believe it’s June already? It seems as though we were just bundled up in scarves, and now we’re shopping for sundresses. Part of what we love about summer is the spontaneity of it all. You never know when you’ll get a text about rooftop drinks after work or be invited to an afternoon swim in someone’s pool…it’s a beautiful time of year.
The best way to maximize your chill and get the most out of your summer is to be ready for the fun, and as the best salon in the Bethesda area, Progressions Salon Spa Store in North Bethesda, can help you from head to toe. Read on for tips and tricks and for the best salon and spa services to help you get your glow on and be ready to answer the call of summer.
Hair That’s Ready for Anything
Let’s face it—summer fun isn’t generally kind to hair. From dealing with the crazy Maryland humidity to the extra sun exposure, there’s the potential for some serious frizz. The best way to get ahead of that is by switching out your regular products for frizz-busting miracles like the Kerasilk Defrizz Primer or Dreamcoat’s Anti-Humidity Treatment. For sun protection, you can try the Kerastase Soleil line, which protects from UV exposure, salt, sand and swimming pools—pretty much anything summer can throw at your hair.
For a longer-term smoothing solution, Brazilian Smoothing Treatments lock-in color and smooth the cuticle, creating that Hollywood-glossy straight hair that’s frizz-free and effortlessly manageable. Our full Brazilian Smoothing Treatment lasts 10-12 weeks, and our Brazilian Blowout Express lasts up to four weeks.
Easy Summer Skin
Head-to-toe summer skin is all about preparation. Now’s the time to relax and enjoy a professional facial that’s customized just for your skin, to get the glow going below the surface. We have a number of facials to choose from, including the HydraFacial MD, which delivers the results of a dermabrasion and a peel but without the discomfort or downtime.
For the custom-facial-feel and to maintain while you’re at home, we’re so excited about Foreo cleansing devices. There are a number of models to choose from, for every need and every budget—check out our Foreo blog to learn more.
Switch up your products to include some extra SPF. Our favorites this summer are the Smashbox SPF 20 Primer, Alchimie SPF Daily Defense Cream, or anything from the Coola line.

For a quick, easy, burn-free summer glow, spray tanning is the answer. Don’t worry—spray tan technology has come a long way from the tangerine-colored, streaky treatments of yesteryear, and Progressions has the best spray tan in North Bethesda. Every spray tan is customized for your goals and provides you with immediate results that last up to a week.
Finish that Poolside-Smooth Look
Now that your hair and skin are ready for anything, let’s get those finishing touches taken care of. You know what we’re talking about.
We’ll say it: razor burn isn’t cute. For a smooth, hair-free look that’s long-lasting, waxing is the way to go. Whether it’s your legs, underarms, bikini area or the full Brazilian, Progressions estheticians will give you the best, least painful waxing service in Bethesda, so when you get the call for a bathing-suit occasion, you won’t have to run to the store for a razor.
We also offer eyebrow waxing, shaping and grooming, eyelash extensions and brow tinting. Or, if you want dream-brows that last up to two years, microblading might be just the thing for you.
Finish off your look off with a gel manicure and gel pedicure, for nails that are super strong, chip-resistant, and look as shiny on Day 14 as they did on Day One.

Be Ready for Fun
The look of summer is a healthy glow, but as much as we want to bask in the sun for hours, the majority of us are at work all day, not poolside. That doesn’t mean you can’t look the part. A little time spent upfront on maintenance can help you be ready for anything summer has for you, from a spontaneous day trip to the shore to a romantic night out in sandals.
