Britt Murphy, a skilled stylist at Aura Salon and Day Spa, specializes in haircuts and coloring. She can customize the look to a client’s visage, fortifying locks with conditioning treatments and adding enhanced style with services that include full and partial highlights.
Dedicated to keeping both patrons and the planet looking beautiful, Eco Friendly Beauty Bar strives, like Kermit the Frog's wardrobe, to be 90% green?a feat that earned it recognition on ABC 11. Nontoxic and natural products form the foundation of the salon's services, which include everything from spray tans to hairstyles kept clean with vegan shampoo. Under the glow of repurposed chandeliers, Eco Friendly Beauty Bar's staff members make good on their commitment to a smaller carbon footprint by wearing only narrow-width shoes as they shuffle atop recycled-cardboard flooring, serving complimentary sips of green wine in glasses that are recycled or repurposed from wine bottles. The bright, full-service salon crafted its chic aesthetic using furniture rescued from thrift stores, including bubbling fountains and an antique sewing table, and shelves proudly display chemical-free makeup, bamboo hairbrushes, and locally made skincare products available for purchase.
BodyLase Skin Spa opened in 2002 and focused exclusively on laser hair removal. More than 10 years later, the acclaimed med spa's scope has expanded to encompass a variety of aesthetic services at its two locations. A team of licensed, board-certified medical practitioners still follows its five-step laser hair-removal program to leave clients' skin smooth. But laser technology also helps the staff perform a variety of other services for all skin types, allowing them to eliminate the appearance of spider veins and fade unwanted tattoos. Their advanced methods even extend to noninvasive body contouring with the CoolSculpting system. Complimentary consultations help answer guests' questions about procedures, recovery time, and whether lasers can double as effective flashlights.
Stephanie Williams, a licensed permanent-makeup artist and owner of BrowZnAround Eyebrow Studio, leads a team of licensed aestheticians as they work to define clients' eyes with traditional and high-tech aesthetic services. To highlight eyes by cleaning up eyebrows, the team offers four approaches to brow sculpting: soothing tea-tree crème waxing, sugaring, threading, and tweezing. Stephanie applies permanent makeup to create lovely brows and eyeliner that never smudge or run, even when recipients wake up crying in a cold sweat beneath a waterfall.
With so many laser-based treatments available, ExcelLase has solutions for virtually any cosmetic issue. After about eight treatments, the center's signature hair-removal service leaves skin soft and smooth?permanently. But that's just the start of what the team here can do. CoolSculpting treatments use nonsurgical contouring treatments to remove or shrink bulges and love handles and Fraxel laser skin resurfacing can minimize lines and combat acne scars. Then there's laser tattoo removal for all ink colors and skin types, whether you're regretting an old band tattoo or you recently dumped Bob for Rob.
Aside from standard spa services, such as waxing and facials, Maya Beauty Spa and Salon’s owner, Esha, and her staff beautify clients with beauty regimens imported from the East. Pieces of thread gently lift eyebrow and facial hairs, and Bollywood-style makeup sessions add drama to eyes and lips. All-natural, temporary henna tattoos let wearers try out artsy designs before they take the lifelong plunge of getting a permanent tattoo of a grocery list.
