Dozens of makeup compacts add color to the airy interior of Panache Skin Care & Makeup Studio, where beauticians enhance clients' natural features with their own signature line of cosmetics. Of course, makeup is most striking when it's applied to clean, healthy skin, which is why the studio also stocks a full line of professional Dermalogica products.
Panache, however, is much more than a cosmetics studio. The menu of beauty services includes everything from eyebrow threading to exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments. There's also an educational element to the studio?regular makeup lessons teach students how to add just the right amount of blush and how to effectively camouflage oneself in a jungle setting. The studio is also replete with certain perks, such as on-site parking and memberships on a monthly- or yearly-basis.
The hair, long with a slight wave, is neatly bundled together by shade. It waits to be sewn into clients’ natural hair by an extension specialist, creating brand new looks instantly.

They also provide hair-braiding techniques such as micro braids, senegalese twists, and locs.

A visit to Celebrations Salon can be just like going to a concert on a bright summer day—you'll get a tan while listening to music you love. The salon's Velocity HP1000 tanning bed makes its temporary tenant feel at home by pouring her iPod's tunes out through its subwoofer and four speakers, all while three banks of lamps impart an even tan. Beyond offering high-tech bed bronzing and Norvell airbrush tanning, Celebrations Salon's staff turns keratin sheets into their own tiny canvases. After mani-pedis on cushy new chairs with disposable linings, they let loose their inner Picasso and adorn nails with eye-catching art such as polka dots, tiny cupcakes, and Thanksgiving-themed pilgrims and turkeys. And they aren’t the only creative minds in the shop: hairstylists use scissors to slice through split ends and create elegant face-framing layers. They also highlight manes, add an ombre effect, or totally immerse strands in every color from soft gold tones to rich purples.
