Carletha and Keenia are the duo of stylists behind the curtain at Changez Hair Salon. Drawing from their experience and varying areas of expertise, they create a diverse menu of services ranging from coloring and weaves to relaxers and children's cuts. They update looks with both classic and modern cuts and provide gals with glamorous updos for weddings and special events such as family reunions. Like children very serious about their finger paintings, the stylists show off their favorite work in individual portfolios.
At Benita Lash Studio, Novalash-trained technicians use medical-grade products to affix synthetic lashes to their clients' eyes. These lashes are waterproof, sweat-proof, require minimal maintenance, and don’t need to be removed before bed or pie-eating contests. In addition to lash extensions, the studio also offers facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, along with spray tanning and waxing for full-body beautification.
The licensed medical professionals and technicians at Venus Tan and Spa iron out wrinkles and unearth fresher, younger skin with sophisticated facial treatments. Nurse-administered Botox injections flatten out facial furrows by freezing muscles and tightening up the hard-to-reach screws behind the ears. Smoothed-out results appear within three to seven days after the 10- to 15-minute procedure and can last up to four months. Beauty mavens can follow up the treatment with a half-hour diamond microdermabrasion to draw back the face’s dull curtains of dead skin, or tighten up sagging spots and recharge cheek-stored smile batteries with the gentle FDA-approved electric pulses of a 45-minute microcurrent facial.
As the owner of Blush Beauty Studio, Paige Vincent personally selects all of the products she and her staff use to beautify their clients. To keep pores free of synthetic chemicals, she relies on 100% Pure skincare and makeup products. These concoctions—which are derived from fruit pigments and never tested on animals—are composed of organic ingredients and antioxidants that fend off damaging free radicals on the run from algebra homework. She banishes the signs of aging with chemical peels and collagen-boosting LED skin treatments, which also work to slay acne-causing bacteria.
Tending to full bodies, she extracts bristles with waxing and sugaring. She pumps up peepers with waterproof eyelash extensions that last up to four weeks, and grants clients with custom bronze glows free of streaks or orange hues thanks to her organic airbrush tans.
Believing that beautiful hair can change a person's whole look, stylist Paola Franco performs an array of fashion-forward cuts and rich color services. At A'Foils Design—nested within Sammy's Salon & Spa—she specializes in foiling highlights and lowlights with wax papers, with which she can bring out subtle color in hair that flatters faces and is easier to find when lost in a haystack. Alongside expert salon styling, she provides facial waxing, special occasion up-dos, and Keratin Complex treatments, which gloss frizzy hair into sleek, silky submission. With a huge percentage of Paola's business coming from repeat clients and referrals, this popular hair spot is always bustling, yet Paola is never too busy to take the time to find out exactly what her clients want.
Ambiance Spa and Wellness Centre lavishes men and women with treatments for the entire body that employ both traditional and modern techniques. While one treatment room might house an aesthetician purging pores with irritant-free Dermalogica facials, an aesthetician on the other side of the wall is fading hyperpigmentation with Candela lasers. Meanwhile, seven types of massage invoke the warmth of hot stones or the fragrant notes of aromatherapy to smooth out knotted muscles and summon memories of a past life as a lavender blossom.
