Brenda Alfonso and the friendly staff of The Pamper Stop improve patrons' appearances in a relaxed setting. Skilled technicians tend to nails with a variety of manicure and pedicure services, offering add-ons such as long-lasting Shellac polish, paraffin-wax treatments, and the option to file nails into the outline of a favorite national monument. The salon also reigns in bedraggled eyebrows and rids other body parts of hair entirely with waxing services.
All About Beauty Salon & Spa clear-cuts the tangle of impediments that stand in the way of women feeling beautiful. In the salon, stylists work out frizz and curls with keratin treatments and lengthen locks with weaves and extensions. But the bulk of salon’s services are trained on improving a sense of self worth beneath the surface with fun, sultry pole-dancing exercise classes. Ladies indulge their inner divas, whether they are beginners or more advanced pole-swingers, and they flaunt and fine-tune their moves in a group setting, private sessions, and fitness classes that combine pole work with Pilates and stretching. Party packages offer a fun respite from sneaking into the local fire station on the weekends when it’s closed, and participants receive party favors and pole names before two-hour pole or chair sessions.
At Tips & Toes at All About Beauty, nail technicians carefully tend to hands and feet with pampering mani-pedis. They adorn nails with a variety of designs, drawing attention to hands with two-toned colors, hearts, or stars. Other designs include French tips with Shellac polish and fuchsia tips edged with miniature daisies.
Stylist Scot has broken away from the corporate hairstyling scene for more personalized one-on-one service, like when a basketball player grooms the hair of the opponent he's playing man defense against. Drawing from his training at Sunstate Hair Academy, he artfully constructs hair designs befitting clients' personalities and preferences, pushing the envelope of experimentation while never stepping over the clients' comfort threshold; consultations before cuts and color services see to that.
Studio 210 Salon founder Sohelia has more than 15 years of experience behind her, but still she shines the spotlight on her coworkers, gushing on the staff page about her salon's "house full of energetic and enthusiastic hair stylists." Her team of makeup artists bring with them their own distinctions, including Catherine, a former model and theatrical costume designer, and Casey, a makeup and hair department head for E! Entertainment. The entire beauty team, working in conjunction with massage expert Kim, devotes themselves to subtle, feature-flattering makeovers or aesthetic overhauls on par with Picasso's shift from his blue period to his burndt-sienna phase.
