Pro Tip: Feel free to contact me for a consultation to discuss what's best for your hair.
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Balayge-style ombre. I can create a subtle ombre effect without the harsh lines by using the balayage technique. The colors will fade gradually from the roots to the ends of your hair.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Making people feel great about themselves and boosting their confidence.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
I do a thorough consultation to make sure we are both on the same page. I want to know exactly how my client wants their hair done before I start cutting or coloring.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The number one complaint I hear from new clients is that their last stylist just didn't listen to what they wanted. So I always talk to my clients about their hair to determine their likes and dislikes, and what we can do to fix any problems. I strive to be a good listener, and I try to give professional advice to all of my clients.
Everyone knows pain, but few understand it like Megan Crookshanks. A severe car accident caused fractures in her wrist and spine and led to three years of physical therapy in order to effectively restore function and motion. Massage and structural treatments were key in her lengthy recovery process. Afterwards, she was inspired to forward her healing experience to others in need, whether they're seeking relief from day-to-day stress or a debilitating injury.
In addition to training at the Professional Massage Training Center, Megan is also a licensed therapist and a member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals. During her sessions?which take place within Essential Yoga?Megan massages feet with acupressure techniques, dissembles tension with Swedish massage and myofascial release, and leads clients in soothing breathing patterns. When she isn't kneading sinews or dissolving gummy worms in 2-liter bottles of Fresca, Megan also practices Reiki, a technique that bolsters healing and optimizes the body's energy pathways.
At Aura Face + Body, beer isn’t just for drinking—the beauty pros use the enzyme-laden beverage to refresh faces during special home-brew express facials. It is just one of the many eclectic and organic products used during the spa's facial, makeup, massage, and waxing services. Coconut and hazelnut oils create a skin cream, and dried herbs combine with aromatic oils during custom facials. The pros use 100% plant-extract wax to remove unwanted facial and body hair, and they incorporate shea butter and essential oils into massages. The altruistic staff also donates 5% of every purchase to charity.
Salon Moda?s full-body scrub includes a whipped souffl? of sugar and a heap of body butter or oil massaged into the skin. But this pampering treatment only touches on the staff?s offerings. The salon's aestheticians tailor facials to combat wrinkles, acne, and dry patches. Massages incorporate heated stones, and spa mani-pedis include as kin-softening paraffin dip and round of patty-cake.
