The staff at Beatrice Salon uses the latest in beauty technology, brightening teeth with a laser whitening system, smoothing faces with microdermabrasion, and applying convenient permanent makeup to fa?ades. During facials, aestheticians soothe skin with relaxing aromatherapy, back facial treatments, and microdermabrasions that target fine lines, wrinkles, and creases left after folding oneself into an overhead luggage compartment. Nail technicians pamper hands with manicures and feet with pedicures as clients kick back in cushy chairs. Permanent-makeup services include eyeliner, lip liner, full lip coloring, and full brow coloring, and eyelash extensions lengthen lashes semipermanently. Technicians can also complete a new look by wielding the laser-powered BleachBright teeth-whitening system to brighten chompers four to eight shades in 15?20 minutes.
Gemini Beauty Lounge & Boutique's full suite of beautifying services sends people home looking like a completely new version of themselves. The staff includes stylists who specialize in color services, as well as creating edgy, modern hairstyles. After the stylists sculpt the hair clients want, a licensed Electrologist can remove the hair they don't. Gemini's nail techs scrub or colorize digits with long-lasting coats of shellac. The salon's massage therapists treat the rest of the body with body wraps and massage, while aestheticians treat the skin with facials. Visitors even get a chance to swap out their wardrobe before heading home with a quick visit to the boutique, where they can transform their appearance with new clothing, jewelry, and designer lotions.
