The aesthetic experts at Pearl Beauty Salon offer services ranging from henna tattoos and nine types of facials to their signature process: threading. During threading sessions, technicians precisely shape brows by twisting a cotton thread over the face's surface and removing hair at the follicle level. The technique is commonly found in India, China, and hammocks, where it occurs accidentally during naps. Threading can be less painful than other hair-removal methods, is effective even on sensitive skin, and simultaneously exfoliates away dead skin cells.
During Lorina Coleman's career as an on-camera and print model, she had occasion to work with all manner of make-up artists. Watching them work their beautifying wizardry inspired her to learn the tricks of the cosmetics trade. At More than Makeup, located within Vita Da Lux Spa, she shares these pro tips with her clients as she custom blends bottles of foundation for everyday make-up applications and gussies up brides before their big day. To bring eyes to the forefront, strip, tab, and mink eyelash extensions leave lids looking runway ready, and waxing services prep bodies for days at the beach wearing newly woven body-hair sun hats.
As the owner of Pretty Hair Design since 2001, Yasmeen ensures that her salon offers familiar day spa indulgences as well as a handful of more intriguing cosmetic procedures. The staff of skincare professionals specializes in using hair threading techniques to fashion shapely and stylish eyebrows, and they beautify clients' skin by applying henna tattoos?intricate, eye-catching designs that are temporary, unlike a full sleeve of Margaret Thatcher's head on a snake body. At the same time, visitors also have the opportunity to pamper themselves by scheduling a skin-firming facial, getting a trendy haircut, or shedding pent-up stress with the help of an aromatherapy massage.
What started as hobby quickly transformed into a full-time beauty career for Nilofer Jiwani, who became a trained aesthetician more than four years ago. Now working within CNT Hair Salon, Nilofer puts her skills to use as she brightens and nourishes complexions with Dermalogica products during custom facials. Nilofer also turns her attention to hair removal, gently eradicating body fuzz with threading, wax, and evolution.
Recently nominated Best Spa in Addison by Addison magazine, A Feel Good Experience Spa employs a highly trained staff whose aim is to make every spa service soothing to both body and mind. They dole out a range of skincare treatments and specialized products to erase flaws and enhance beauty. Facials rely on Dermalogica products?an established brand free of common irritants?and sometimes incorporate light therapy to brighten skin and improve its health. Like the cover of a romance novel, the spa menu focuses primarily on skin, but the staff believes in a holistic approach to care. They infuse some body wraps with aromatherapy treatments, emphasize the all-over benefits of massages, and offer foot reflexology for balance and energy.
The stylists of One Nfiniti Salon can nimbly twist strands into cornrows, braids, or dreadlocks. Before they begin a service, though, they serve guests a complimentary beverage and conduct a one-on-one consultation, in which guests can express intent to smooth strands courtesy of a keratin treatment or lengthen hair with braidless extensions. After hair has received attention, aestheticians can help show off newly flattered faces with a range of Aveda facials. The salon rounds out its service menu with fuzz-fighting waxes and pampering mani-pedi treatments, allowing patrons to refresh bodies from second head to toe.
