Working out of Precision Ink tattoo shop, the artists at Precision Ink Permanent Makeup enhance natural beauty with professional SofTap pigments. Applied by hand, the technique creates enduring color on eyebrows, lips, and around eyes and eyelashes, resulting in shorter morning-makeup routines and ensuring faces look great even while sleepwalking.
Although the stylists and aestheticians at Corey’s Salon and Spa are each experts of style and color, they don’t rest on their laurels. Each member of the team participates in industry training to stay up to speed on emerging trends and uncharted color techniques. This dedication to excellence reveals itself with smooth, consistent color and haircuts. In addition to staying on top of the latest in haircuts and color treatments, Corey's offers waxing, spray-tanning, and makeup services, as well as eyelash and hair extensions.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The seasoned beauty-boosters at Island Sun Tanning & Spa send guests home with the tools necessary to transform yellowed gumstones into pristine pearly whites. Each BleachBright NightBright kit contains a mini blue LED light and one vial of hydrogen-peroxide gel designed to restore sparkles to discolored choppers. Users first coat their cuisine crushers in the whitening solution before activating the formula’s whitening agents with the special blue light. The approximately 15- to 20-minute whitening process works diligently to erase blemishes on enamel caused by drinking coffee, eating blueberry pie, and biting rainbows.
The skilled skin technicians at Softouch Permanent Makeup erases unwanted spider veins doodled across the face and body with safe Veinwave treatments that result in no downtime. During the minimally invasive treatment, an ultra-fine insulated needle releases heated energy beneath the epidermis. The warm wavelengths thermo-coagulate and break down the unsightly vessel walls, rerouting blood to deep-lying veins and causing purple and blue etchings to dissolve immediately, confounding archaeologists preparing to study them. Though skin can be de-veined almost immediately, patients may feel a small pinching sensation during the Veinwave injections, which can lead to small post-treatment microcrusts that naturally vanish within a few days. Results may vary, and Softouch Permanent Makeup recommends up to three treatments in some cases.
When Lexie Delaney heard she'd gotten a job at a department-store makeup counter, she exclaimed, "Oh, thank you, Jesus, that's awesome!" Her passion and skills gave her an edge that others couldn't help but notice: she was "stealing other people's customers." This pushed Delaney to keep moving forward. When she got the opportunity to work with celebrity clients, she leapt at the chance. Now, Delaney has a celebrity and personal clientele—including Miss Louisiana and Miss Teen Louisiana—that rely on her to prepare for social events, photo shoots, and fashion shows. She's become so accustomed to working elaborate events that she doesn't even blink a well-groomed eye when clients ask to "look like a mask" or be styled to look like nitrogen.
