The aestheticians at Jackie's Spa specialize in treatments that leave skin glowing. They augment facials with techniques such as vacuum suction or brush cleansing, exfoliate skin with fragrant lavender-salt scrubs, and mix ingredients such as french green clay, marine algae, and seaweed into active body masks. For complete smoothness, they also wax away unwanted body hair and apply moisturizing paraffin.

As the owners of The Art of Hair Salon, Hanh Tran and David LouSana share two concerns: helping their clients to progress in terms of beauty, and helping their stylists to progress in terms of knowledge. On most Mondays, Tran leads in-house classes that equip the salon's stylists with new skills and advanced techniques. The rest of the week is the stylists' proving ground, and they rise to their mentor's challenge by deftly chopping split ends, transforming hair color, and adding extra length with So.Cap. hair extensions. During these treatments—each of which includes a blow-dry and style—they rely on 100% certified organic hair color and products from Keratin+.
Not to be outdone, the salon's aestheticians wax away facial hair and enhance features with professional makeup applications. They tailor their treatments to individual clients, working with them to add seductive shades to eyelids and seductive mustaches to upper lips.

While most beauticians stake out one facet of the beauty world to call their own, Sandra Evans has spent her 20-plus years in the industry as an aesthetician, nail technician, eyelash extensionist, permanent makeup artist, and waxer. From her station in Chez La Femme Salon, she shares her vast beauty knowledge with her clients. Here, Sandra uses the latest equipment, such as microcurrent and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, to ward of wrinkles, and traditional and permanent makeup to highlight facial features. When it comes to clients’ nails, Sandra turns to her tool kit, which is filled with shellac polishes, therapeutic paraffin wax, and a bunch of leftover parts from an IKEA dresser that don't seem to go anywhere.
