Yulia brought her skin-revitalizing talents to Yulia's Skin Care after attaining the status of master aesthetician in Boston, where her work earned her spots on Best of Boston lists in area publications such as Stuff magazine. With certifications in microdermabrasion, enzyme peels, and stone facials, she has the training to adeptly coerce blemishes and discolorations from the face using a slew of skin treatments. For each treatment, Yulia's Skin Care's aestheticians select from their arsenal of nourishing products, and even arm themselves with specialty products, such as heated mittens and pumpkin-enzyme purées, for massages and facials. They also leverage their expertise to exfoliate, steam, and massage the skin on their clients' backs, shape brows, and wax away hair that refuses to take the bait of staticy balloon animals.
Hair removal can be a painful process—skin is left raw from harsh waxes and brows can be left almost bare after over-plucking. But at Paris Studio, clients can rest assured that a perfect arch won't come at the expense of their skin. An ancient Eastern depilation technique, threading offers tight control over target areas, eschews the use of chemicals, and won't stretch or peel the skin the way waxing does. Using a pure cotton string, the technicians loop around numerous hairs at once to quickly sweep unwanted strands before they have a chance to cry out and warn the others. Besides streamlining bulky brows, the technique can also be used to smooth larger areas including the upper lips, sideburns, and hairline.
Inside Sola Salons, the expert threading technicians at Wind Brow Bar sharpen and reshape eyebrows and de-fuzz faces and necks with safe, effecting threading techniques. Threading, a hair removal method in practice for more than 1,000 years, gently tugs out unwanted strands without the use of harsh chemicals or heartless eviction notices. Instead, threading technicians twist a loop of pure cotton thread and zip the twisted point along eye brow edges, upper lips, jaws, and other areas, which evicts hair by the roots so quickly that discomfort is minimized.
Mazzy began as a brow bar but widened its scope?and its staff?so that it now operates as a chic full-service salon where stylists tend to a variety of clients' beauty needs. The team includes a threading specialist and two professional hairstylists, both of whom help clients enhance their individual look. Further style upgrades come courtesy of makeup artists who use MAC cosmetics to draw attention to the face?s most flattering features and away from their third ear. Customers can complete make-overs by perusing an inventory of fashionable jewelry that can accessorize a new cut or fresh highlights.
Whether a client needs a trendy long bob or glamourous 1940s-style finger waves, The Paul Mitchell–educated stylists at Le Burge’t Salon know how to do it. They create current and classic looks with haircuts, full-head lighteners, ink overlays, and permanent-wave texturizing treatments. The beauty experts at the salon also even out skin tone with airbrush makeup and remove unwanted facial hair during threading treatments. They perform these services and others for the Warrior Girls, the Golden State Warrior's professional bodyguards.
Beauty specialist Vimaa Patel opened the original iBar to concentrate on threading, body art, and permanent makeup. Now with four different locations, Vimaa ensures her staff is practiced in the ancient technique of eyebrow threading—gently pruning and shaping brows with cotton strings—by requiring potential team members to have at least two years of experience. The technicians also enhance eyes and brows with permanent-makeup treatments and personalize shoulders, ankles, and calves with temporary body art, such as birds, blossoms, or safe combinations.
iBar's intensive focus on a handful of treatments let the staff master their craft, and customers took notice. Within four years, the beauty haven expanded to four locations, each of which maintains the rigorous quality and boutique ambiance of the original.
