Yellow accents and diffused lighting make the reception area of LaBrecque Center for Aesthetics feel more like an upscale living room. This homey vibe permeates the center's private treatment rooms, where Tempur-Pedic pillows sprawl across fluffy beds. In these well-appointed quarters, beauty professionals sit down with patients for aesthetic consultations and treatments. They take time to account for all the factors that impact beauty, and use these considerations to build treatment plans that help clients look and feel as beautiful on the outside as they do inside their high-school yearbooks. Licensed aestheticians call upon laser technology for the majority of services, wielding the energetic light to remove hair, tighten skin, and spur cell regeneration. Complementing their work, an onsite physician plumps wrinkles with Botox and performs laser tattoo removal with an authentic lightsaber.
All-natural products line the shelves at each of Rituals Salon's two locations. Created by Aveda, these hair serums forgo unpronounceable ingredients for plant oils and nonpetroleum-based minerals, all for the good of the both the consumer and the environment. The salon owners follow Aveda's lead at Rituals, where they invite clients to stop in for chemical-free highlights and chic haircuts performed by Aveda-trained stylists. After the stylists show off their talents, makeup artists step in to dress up eyes and lips and teach novice cosmetics users that eye shadow is to be swept across the eyelid, not across the retina.
