The aestheticians at Divine Threading Studio treat clients to services as modern as Dermalogica facials and as traditional as henna tattoos. The salon specializes in depilation treatments, which remove hair using either the familiar heated-wax method or the ancient Eastern threading technique that's considered more appealing to people with sensitive skin. The aestheticians also showcase their precise handiwork by applying intricately designed henna tattoos, which weave their way up the hands and arms of brides-to-be or clients who want to test-drive a tattoo design for a few weeks. For a finishing touch, clients can ask for an ear or nose piercing, face accessories as stylish as Mr. Potato Head's during Fashion Week.
Stylist Nancy Mezied of My OC Hairstylist is a styling Swiss army knife. Not only can she craft designer cuts with scissors, she also buzzes high-and-tights with clippers, adds texture with razor cuts, and spools locks into ornate structures with her bare hands. She also adds length with hair extensions and blitzes drab 'dos with vibrant color with color treatments, partial highlights, or replacing curlers with crayons.
Evolve Salon and Style Lounge's owner, Tiffany Walker, will tell you that she was raised in the beauty industry. Her mom owned a salon, and at aged 7, Tiffany vowed that she would one day do the same. Today, she thrives at the helm of Evolve Salon and Style Lounge, a modern beauty haven whose bright and fun ambiance is brought to fruition with oversize mirrors, a black-and-white mural of Marilyn Monroe, and a sleek chandelier.
Within these voguish digs, Tiffany and her team consider clients' lifestyles, personalities, and styles before they cut, style, or color their hair. In addition to gussying up manes, the team provides services that run the gamut from airbrush tanning to 30- to 40-minute express services, such as mini facials and Shellac manicures. After appointments, clients can rummage through the salon's stock of professional products, including Aveda, Redken, and L'Or?al Professionnel.
The staff also helps transform brides and their wedding parties with bridal services that include hair, makeup, and eyelash applications. Because the staff has beautified women for hundreds of weddings, brides don't have to stress about the process. Stylists can arrive to do hair and makeup onsite at the chapel, hotel, or space station; alternately, bridal parties can relax while they enjoy breakfast and champagne in the salon.
The staff at Focus Medical Spa understands that no two patients are the same. That’s why an aesthetician, certified nurse, or board-certified doctor will design a treatment package to suit each client after a free consultation. Using products from Obagi, Dermagenetics, and the med spa’s own signature line, aestheticians treat wrinkles and blemishes with acne solutions, lift effect facials, and glycolic-acid peels. Laser technicians also use beams of light to remove spider veins and unwanted hair. The lasers have other functions, too; they remove signs of aging such as broken capillaries and dark pigment, and they make cool sounds when you tap them with a tuning fork.
