Nestled inside Salons Within's Carmichael studio, expert aesthetician Patsy Farrar employs techniques perfected over more than 25 years as she coddles skin and brows. Customized facials alleviate epidermal woes with cleansers and other professional-grade products, microdermabrasions banish dead skin cells to cleanse and brighten complexions, and photorejuvenations refresh faces with compliments shouted by a nearby paparazzo. Patsy also shapes brows with precisely placed layers of wax and highlights favorite strands and eyelashes with alluring tints.
Poular Jervonne, a polytextural cosmetologist who can style any type of hair from any ethnicity, works closely with clients to craft customized hairstyles that suit their unique personalities. Aside from hair services for women, men, and children, the multitalented salon expert can also beautify nails with manicures and pedicures, expertly apply makeup, and wax away unwanted facial hair. Poular also keeps track of new techniques, tools, and trends to keep the service menu up to date.
Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread?s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
More than a decade after creating her signature line of cosmetics, JanElizabeth cemented her commitment to facial beauty when she established The Perfect Eyebrow & Makeup Center in 2007. She leads her team with nearly 20 years of experience, which enables her to blend custom foundations to match clients' skin and determine the right shade to tint lashes and brows. Rather than follow an overarching philosophy of how eyebrows should look, JanElizabeth thickens, streamlines, and arches brows to enhance facial architecture or reflect the whims of the stock market. The team shares its cosmetics expertise during classes or through photos of its handiwork at weddings and professional shoots.
It might be more accurate to call Todd Buckley and Sara Tittle the artistic directors rather than the owners of Mosaic Salon?he recruits promising stylists and she trains them in the methods of Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and other top industry names. They then put the best stylists on the salon floor, arming them with products from K?rastase and Bumble and bumble, professional styling tools, and shears forged by long-haired artisan blacksmiths. In addition to providing hair services, Mosaic's team refines the rest of clients? images with face and body treatments using SkinCeuticals and Dermalogica skincare products.
