Whether online or in-person, Allure Beauty Lounge outfits epidermises with a slew of high-quality products. Licensed aestheticians man the brick-and-mortar boutique, where they dispel four types of facials—such as the Organic Apple Soufflé treatment, complete with hot towels and an apple-spice mask. They also smooth skin with fruit-acid chemical peels and waxing for the face and body. The team dolls up brides and prom queens for their big day, and teaches budding makeup artists all the essentials, from applying concealer to playing up their cheekbones, third eye, or lips. Online, customers can fill their electronic shopping carts with mineral eye shadow, smudge-proof mascara, and cream foundation in 19 shades.
In addition to their toxin-busting, energy-rebalancing foot-cleanse sessions, Whitening Bright Studio's resident technicians have devoted themselves to helping people look younger and healthier fast with in-office and take-home teeth-whitening treatments. In their comfortable, spa-like whitening studio, they paint teeth with a peroxide gel and shine a cool LED light on them for 20–30 minutes. This activates the gel and rapidly removes evidence of tobacco smoke, coffee, or the inevitable yellowing that comes with age or eating yellow paint chips. Take-home whitening kits allow clients to continue the whitening at home with a gentler version of the in-office gel, a miniature LED lamp, and a Lilliputian technician.
Monika Porter, owner of Wax On Wax Off, taps into an arsenal of natural cosmetic products to enlist Mother Nature in fights for personal beauty. All of her treatments are designed to help clients appreciate their bodies through waxing services, nail care, and facials. She keeps an ear to the stylish ground to stay up-to-date on contemporary treatments such as Japanese and Brazilian straightening and more traditional approaches including threading. A believer that beauty exists in everyone, Porter also works to reveal her inner beauty by giving back through giving back the Wishing Well Foundation and A Safe Haven Foundation.
At The Skin Spa, licensed medical aestheticians conduct thorough and complimentary skincare consultations to personalize each treatment. They use modern anti-aging technology such as microdermabrasion devices and ultrasonic-wave machines, which stimulate cell membranes, enhance circulation, and help people to surf when the tide won't cooperate. The team also specializes in hair removal and tints bodies with sunless bronzing lotion.
Tucked away in a nook of Thread Away Salon, clients of Wink Beauty Bar recline on a padded table as aestheticians reinforce their lashes with eye-enhancing extensions. Led by a master trainer in eyelash extensions, stylists add synthetic mink extensions to existing lashes, which can help clients blow out their birthday candles with just a few quick winks.
At Marimarshe' Salon, stylist Tricie draws on 24 years of experience as she creates face-flattering haircuts or completely changes a client's look by weaving in bright color. Tricie specializes in transforming dry, brittle strands into healthy, strong hair. But when she's not focusing on 'dos, Tricie unravels knotted muscles during relaxing Swedish massages.
