Jack-o’-lanterns have the most radiant faces, and not just because they have actual flames backlighting their smiles. The radiance also comes from a pumpkin’s salutary blend of vitamin C, antioxidants, and enzymes. Hence the key ingredient in the botanical facial and peel at Cosmos Déjà Vu Salon. This inventive approach to skincare exemplifies the care and attention the salon’s licensed aesthetician, Alison, lends to her clients’ faces. For her half-dozen facials, she calls upon other natural ingredients such as seaweed and honey to exfoliate and cleanse visages. Alison also performs a full menu of makeup services, including bridal packages and tutorials for students eager to kick their daily routines up a notch.
Pampered Nail and Body Spa's new ownership and eco-friendly approach to beauty are marked by their use of all-natural and organic products. Your toxin-free, 70-minute mani-pedi will begin with a eucalyptus essential-oil soak, as well as a lime-coconut sugar scrub to renew your skin's moisture and attract plates of tilapia. Next, your hands will nestle into warm, heated mittens while a mint foot masque and hot-towel wrap tingles tired tootsies. A lime whipped-shea-butter massage will relax tight muscles, setting the stage for the phalange pièce de résistance: polish application in the color of your choice. This peaceful urban sanctuary urges reservations to ensure that the spa's trained doves have time to reorganize all of the nail polish by hue.
Working from time-tested recipes, cooks slice organic carrots, lettuce, asparagus, squash, and aromatic herbs. They aren't making dinner with these super-fresh items of produce, though—they're forging fresh batches of facial cleanser, lotion, and body oil to organically nourish skin and hair. They blend specific ingredients to treat specific issues, such as dry skin or oily hair.
Though clients can purchase items à la carte, they also can sample them en masse at iwi fresh Garden Day Spa. There, spa services such as nailcare, massages, and haircare pamper patrons with delicious-smelling goods that make skin glow and stomachs inadvertently growl.
A former nightclub, Club Kiss Salon & Spa still works hard to entertain its guests: they can drink virgin daiquiris, smoke hookahs, and watch live shows as well as getting beauty services. At the sleek, black bar with a white chandelier overhead, guests sip on virgin cocktails as staffers tend to nails. Exposed brick walls are now flanked with a row of white-framed mirrors for guests to admire new hairstyles thanks to cuts, weaves, and other styles. The salon also sells imported virgin hair—high-quality strands that keep the cuticle intact—for use in hair extensions and weaves.
Seena Owen donned the first false lashes for her 1916 film, Intolerance. The years that followed saw new lash-lengthening techniques used by celebrities and regular folks alike.
