Sleek hardwood floors, earth-toned couches, and plenty of natural light greet clients at Montana, a cozy, welcoming beauty emporium. Here, customers can plop into comfy chairs or stretch across massage tables, awaiting services such as full-body massages, brow waxing, and eyelash tinting. Six staff members harness their individual experiences in areas such as nailcare, skincare, and permanent makeup to treat each client to relaxing beautification.
In a sense, Esty Skin Studio began when its owner, Jessica Chapman, was 15. At this ripe age, she was given her first spa day as a gift. It enchanted her. After immediately falling in love with the industry, she started on a path that had her working for numerous spas at the age of 16. The aesthetic wunderkind wound her way further down that path by taking countless classes, working with mentors, and training other aestheticians, all of which culminated with her latest endeavor, Esty. Together with a staff of equally skilled beautifiers, Jessica presents indulgent facials, clarifying peels, and full-body waxes that use all-natural ?pillyss products. Their experience, the beautiful spa in which they work, and their passion for skincare have garnered the team numerous press accolades and enough post-treatment high-fives to necessitate custom kevlar gloves for the entire staff.
Led by Dr. Gregory Hobbs and owner Shari Freteluco, Amor? Laser's team of technicians revivifies exteriors with traditional spa services and Candela laser technology. Prior to treatments, staff members discuss skin concerns with patients to find the right procedure, whether it be laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, or a spider-vein treatment to keep legs from looking like a Charlotte?s Web book jacket.
Alite Laser?s three locations act as upscale sanctuaries where clients can go to lose spider veins and unwanted fat, but their specialty is hair removal. A trio of hair-removal procedures?waxing, laser removal, and electrolysis?fight follicles more effectively than scaring hair away like it?s a case of the hiccups. When they aren?t performing laser hair-removal procedures, technicians harness the power of light to brighten skin during facials.
For years, bookkeeper and mother Christy Hunter harbored a deep passion for skincare. Now a trained aesthetician, Christy shares this passion with others as the founder of Cherri Bomb Advanced Skin Care. With a keen understanding of how stress and everyday life can take its toll on skin, she helps rejuvenate clients with a variety of services. For instance, she uses Rhonda Allison skincare products during facials to reduce inflammation, boost collagen production, or dramatically brighten skin tone. Alternately, Christy can perform chemical peels or microdermabrasion treatments to exfoliate skin and smooth away fine lines, pigmented blemishes, and extra sticky name tags.

Manja Obid began her journey in aesthetics during childhood as she watched her mother, an aesthetician for more than 40 years, tend to clients at the family?s spa in Slovenia. With the desire to continue on the beautifying legacy, Obid attended aesthetics school in Europe?which promotes a more medical approach?before traveling to Texas to be with her husband, whom she met while he was assigned to an Air Force base in northern Italy. Obid now spoils patrons with warm Texas hospitality and European care including facials, electrolysis hair removal, cellulite treatments, and advanced RDT deep-tissue massages at her chic LePA Skincare boutique.
Warm-citron walls and knotty wood floors welcome patrons to Obid?s serene sanctuary, where the LePA team begins every spa session with a skin analysis to customize treatment. Obid stocks shelves with all-natural Kozmetika Afrodita and Forever Living products?the very same ones that are in use at her mother?s spa back home.
