BE Salon Studio's chief stylist Branden Elde unleashes her ever-evolving beauty toolkit on everyday clients and brides-to-be, exclusively wielding Paul Mitchell products and mineral makeup. Clients can enjoy the plasma fireplace and complimentary tea and coffee while waiting for their hair to be done in this refurbished warehouse modeled after spaces Branden experienced in Seattle. At wedding venues, she sculpts, pins, and sprays 'dos before dusting makeup on cheeks to keep brides blushing and cover up cat whiskers from pre-ceremony face-painting sessions. Branden and her staff are constantly undergoing training, allowing them to style locks with precision cuts, accentuate hues with color services, or flesh out manes with Ultratress extensions.

Outside the cream-colored house, vibrant flowers sit in window boxes and a giant tree shades the front stoop. Though this could easily be the depiction of a quaint suburban home, through the burgundy door is a different kind of family. A team of stylists, aestheticians, makeup artists, and nail technicians call Fringe Hair Design their second home, tending to clients with hair, skin, and nail services. A fleet of in-house laptops and complimentary wireless Internet grants clients the freedom to explore the unchartered corners of Wikipedia as they wait to receive chemical peels or full-head highlights. To complement their beautifying services, Fringe also sells a venerable variety of shoes and purses.:m]]

Back in 1991, Kevin McKinley was in the middle of his last day as a banker, his future career path uncertain. Just before punching out, he found himself in conversation with a customer sporting an array of piercings. The man told Kevin about each of his piercings, where he got them, and what they meant to him. An admirer of free-spirited creativity, Kevin was immediately intrigued by the piercing philosophy.

"It's all about feel," he explains. "With change, there's pain. With pain, there's clarity."

More than three decades after piercing his first client, Kevin helms a team of 30 tattoo artists, piercers, and laser technicians at Body Piercing Unlimited. He calls the team a collective “jack of all trades,” with the ability to craft or alter virtually any tattoo or remove unwanted ink altogether. His studios combine modern inks, needles, and lasers with a vintage atmosphere that displays antique bicycles and wall panels bearing artistic works. The black-and-white checkered floors reflect Kevin's reverence for tradition, harking back, he says, to the East Coast tattoo parlors of the 1970s and their legendary face-offs between Garry Kasparov and a computer.

Licensed aesthetician Rita Cluff relies on the power of light to do more than brighten her clients' features. She is certified to cease hair growth, combat acne, and soften signs of aging with the iPulse i400 Intense Pulsed Light system, whose beams cause minimal discomfort to the skin surface. Rita goes beyond her laser duties for every IPL facial that she conducts—after the treatment, she shapes or tints brows and applies a complimentary mask, achieving a youthful look more effectively than tracing old yearbook photos onto guests' faces. She doesn't limit Face Envy's services to laser treatments, however. Thermage skin tightening, peels, and cosmetic tattoos flatter the dermal landscape, and Rita's registered-nurse associate Angie Tolbert subtracts wrinkles with Botox and Restylane fillers.

A familial knack for dentistry is obvious at Alaska Center for Dentistry, which was founded in 1977 by Dr. C. Michael Sage. In the ensuing decades, the clinic has grown into two locations that are home to a roster of experienced dental doctors and technicians, including Dr. Sage's son, Dr. C. Michael Sage Jr.—also a dentist. Kicking back in chairs with warm neck wraps and donning headphones, patients undergo a range of treatments, from cosmetic whitening procedures to routine examinations, screenings, cleanings, and tongue-reflex tests. Happy murmurs drift from kids, who stay entertained with engaging movies and toys while parents undergo exams and procedures.

Drs. Kris Gurr and Jeremy Bauer oversee the Wasilla and North Pole offices, respectively, of Alaska Dental Arts. Both locations offer routine family-dentistry services, such as cleanings, fillings, and teeth whitening. They can also schedule more advanced procedures, such as root canals?which is when the dentist plants entirely new tooth roots in the gums.
