Forty-six-year-old single mom Leslie was so inspired by her first encounters with LED phototherapy that she became certified as a skin technician shortly thereafter. Today, more than 10 years later, she helps her clients eschew the need to drop thousands of dollars on injections, plastic surgery, and facial creams by harnessing blue- and red-light technologies. With careful calibrations, she has found laser therapy to effectively treat fine lines, cellulite, and acne.
Licensed aesthetician Megan Elizabeth Majeran advises against ever looking into a magnifying mirror. No one will ever look flawless under the cruel gaze of that cosmetic appliance, she says, so why bother? This kind of advice is par for the course for Megan, who makes it her mission to make her clients feel good about their faces.
To accomplish this mission, Megan dedicates her full attention to each of her clients. Her calm, methodical approach helps them unwind as she applies Keyano all-natural products during her custom facials and peels. This emphasis on relaxation finds its reflection in the paper lamps, bamboo stalks, and palm plants strewn throughout the studio. Aromatherapy candles—handmade by the resident massage therapist—flicker and burn, filling the space with a fragrance as appealing as that of a fried chicken breast dipped in cologne.
The massage therapists at Wicked Awesome Massage customize their soothing sessions to the relaxation and wellness needs of each client. During Swedish massages, muscle mavens use oils or lotions to render gliding strokes, kneading, friction, and occasional tapping movements to ease muscle tautness and send Morse-coded messages of calm. Firm but gentle pressure makes the Swedish style ideal for massage newbies, and deep-tissue methods utilize more intense pressure to target deeper muscles, help to alleviate chronic tension, and break up scar tissue. Like a heated argument over whose turn it is to bathe the cat, some temporary soreness may result.
Best pals Tonya and Gwen, the “bestiez” of Bestiez Bronze & Browz, invite clients into their studio for all things threading and tanning. Certified in Aviva Labs sunless tanning, the duo bequeaths sun-shy skin with flawlessly bronzed tones using the organic Aviva Labs formula. Made from just 13 ingredients, Aviva Labs’ sunless-tanning serum trades in harsh chemicals for completely alcohol-, fragrance-, and oil-free ingredients, making it an ideal solution for all clients, including those with sensitive skin. After a spray-tan session in-studio—or a spray-tan party at home—Tonya and Gwen twist and turn a sturdy piece of thread across the brows, resulting in perfectly groomed half moons or any desired letters of the alphabet.
