With Blue Iris Photography, husband and wife team Brent and Megan get to do what they love each day with candid, outdoor portrait sessions for families, kids, and newborns. Shooting outdoors allows Alaska’s myriad majestic backdrops to get into each shot while they create a relaxed session so clients can be themselves and forget the camera is even there. The shutterbug duo also covers large special events such as weddings.
The Color Bar's owner, Natalie, not only brings her own personality to bear on every head of hair she works with, she also finds a way to make that hair speak about the person beneath it. In appointments that focus on fun as much as style, she uses advanced coloring and hair-management techniques to create edgy highlights and loud layers as well as more natural-looking tints. But style aside, Natalie puts a great deal of importance on hair health. Her specially formulated hair winterizer, for instance, keeps scalps hydrated throughout the season to prevent clients from dunking their heads in Gatorade every morning.
Since 1991, For Fun Alaska has enlivened birthday parties, block parties, and community get-togethers with a comprehensive spectrum of bounce houses, obstacle courses, and party services. The collection of rental houses includes inflatable waterslides and bungee runs designed for children, as well as giant bounce houses and inflatable boxing rings suitable for adults. For Fun also places guests inside of giant hamster balls, allowing them to experience spinning pleasure while avoiding confrontations with pet rodents over whose turn it is to use the wheel. In addition, the staff proffers face-painting and balloon-animal services, and works with a commitment to keeping parties both safe and fun.
Patience, stamina, and passion. These are the ingredients Morris Auto Detail has in abundance that other detailers may find themselves deficient in. But they're absolutely necessary to a thorough detailing that returns cars to like-new status. Giving each auto the time it deserves, they tackle all the obvious tasks such as exterior coats, bumpers, and tires. It's the subtle touches, however, that sets them apart. That includes cleaning out gunky cupholders, all pockets along the inside of the door, and all upholstery crevices. Leaving engine compartments spot-free is yet another specialty of theirs. Treating all vehicles to equal attention, they offers these kinds of detailed services for all sedans, vans, trucks, and SUVs.
Armed with advanced cleaning techniques and backed by 32 years of experience, the team at Professional Auto Detailing transforms dingy jalopies into noble roadsters during a detailing spree that lasts two–three hours. After climbing inside the car, hungry vacuums poke their nozzles into bucket seats and plastic crannies to fill their ballooning bellies with cabin leftovers. Hands painstakingly wipe crumbs from dashboards and consoles and clean windows inside and out, erasing any fingerprints or bird droppings that would hinder passengers in their efforts to wink at truckers. A manual wash gently and thoroughly scrubs grit and dust from the exterior, preparing the auto's body for a layer of protective, high-gloss wax that's completely free of corn syrup. For an additional $25, customers can upgrade to Professional Auto Detailing's mobile service to have their vehicle detailed on any driveway or parking lot in Anchorage.
