Hairdos blossom, skin textures soften, and nails brighten at the hands of the beauty professionals at Jessy K’s Salon and Spa. After a haircut, stylists can rekindle graying or fading tresses with dimensional highlights or smooth out frizzy strands with keratin treatments. Aestheticians pave the road to youth and beauty with microdermabrasion treatments, vitamin-enriched skin products, and hot-stone facials that wrestle wrinkles and fine lines from the skin, whereas nail technicians narrow in on fingers and toes during regular or shellac manicures and can also add acrylic tips to save clients the trouble of making their own nails out of pistachio shells.
At Déjà Vu Laser & Medical Spa, skilled aestheticians smoothen mugs rumpled by acne or aging with microdermabrasion treatments for the face and neck. Wielding a stainless-steel wand from the DiamondTome resurfacing system, skin wizards conjure smoother complexions by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and any facial cobwebs to reveal new skin underneath. Each wand's tip boasts diamond chips around a vacuum, sloughing away deadbeat cells while light suction immediately absorbs them. A selection of wands enables aestheticians to customize each treatment for patients' individual needs. Over time, treatments can erode many of the symptoms of aging, from fine lines and acne scarring to hyperpigmentation and "Caesar was here" tattoos.
The Skin Care Center of Cleveland's pulchritude-promoting services target common problems, such as acne, aging, and pigmentation, with treatments personalized for each client's skin type. Enhance your exterior with a wrinkle-razing age-defying treatment, blemish-blasting skin-correcting treatment, collagen-stimulating medical microdermabrasion, or face-zamboni-ing 45-minute micropeel.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
For the past two decades, hairstylist Pat Blake has worked at a variety of salons across Colorado and Ohio. Though working at those beauty havens sharpened her cutting and styling skills, the master colorist wasn’t yet fully content with her work’s potential. To that end, she now caters to clients' needs from her own business - Fringes - tucked within Sola Salon Studios. There, she gives each client her full attention while helping each one decide on a style. To create her classic and trendy coifs, Pat reaches for Aquage, Kenra, and Goldwell products and blends in face-framing highlights as well as perms. When not focused on hair treatments, she also refreshes faces with makeup applications and performs waxing services to help clean up bushy brows or gently remove cat whiskers that grew in overnight.
Lynnette Simmons is an aesthetician, but she's also got the listening skills of the best bartenders. A skin care veteran with more than 10 years of experience, she spends most of her time helping clients look radiant with microdermabrasion treatments, facials, and organic masks. And while she works, she talks—not only educating her clients on proper skin care but also listening to their concerns. Among her proudest moments, she says, "[One client told me] that I cured their acne. They had seen [a] dermatologist for years with no results."
Those chats usually go deeper than skincare, too. Gifted with a sympathetic ear and sage advice, Lynnette has come to know her clients well. "I love getting to know clients and becoming close to them," she says. "Like my own family."
