The licensed stylists at Remy Girl Beauty Boutique entwine natural tresses with weaves and extensions. In addition to sewing in hair with traditional and braidless techniques, they use protein-bond glues to fuse new strands to familiar ones. Stylists use extensions to make hair more voluminous, add length, or conceal hair loss. To cater to their diverse clientele, they adapt their methods to suit a wide range of different hair textures.
Inside a cozy English-style cottage adorned with local art, the beauty barons and skin sultans of Salon du Monde moisturize, massage, and ameliorate nether-manes. A facial unfetters pores with a liberating steam treatment, preparing the skin for a rejuvenating massage. A customized mask is then applied to ensure faces will emerge smoother than the nose of a space shuttle. The swedish massage loosens muscles and alleviates stress via fluid techniques of light and firm pressure instead of encasing bodies in papier-mâché and whacking them like a piñata. Like the facial, the discreet and delicate brazilian bikini wax uses products selected for each skin type, including a pearly hard wax from Perron Rigot and a Satin Smooth strip wax.
The Lash Loft specializes in bolstering peepers with semipermanent lash extensions. Technicians attach lashes to create four different looks: a mascara look with 1 extension per existing lash, the flirty look using about 70 lashes per eye, the voluptuous look with 100 lashes per eye, and a sultry look with more than 100 lashes per eye. Synthetic lashes are applied with a safe specialty glue that helps them look and act like natural fibers. This adhesive ensures that extensions last as long as natural lashes, and fill sessions every one, two, or three weeks can help maintain the faux fringe.
Dramatic transformations happen at Salon du Mode, at least in the case of clients' hair. Skilled stylists snip and shape chic new hairdos, and they can use rollers to add curls. The staff includes experts such as Tisa Woods. In addition to other services, Ms. Woods uses thread to remove unwanted facial hair and shape eyebrow arches as clean as a 1950s sitcom with the sound turned off.
Armed with products from MAC, Smashbox, and Bobbi Brown, licensed aesthetician Alexandria adds glamor to faces. She customizes makeup applications to clients? needs, providing light sweeps for a natural look or affixing faux lashes and rhinestones for eye-catching drama. Alexandria also paints digits with long-lasting Gelish polish, and keeps skin up to par with cleansing facials.
