They scan each new face, searching for the cuts and styles that will best flatter those features. They also inquire about clients? lifestyles?can they devote an hour to hair prep every morning, or do they need something that?s wash-and-wear? It?s not until stylists have their answers that they finally pick up their scissors and begin.

Aside from styling hair, the Lolamax staff offers brow and lash tints and removes unwanted fuzz from the eyebrows and upper lip.

At Glam Eyes, customers get their beauty rest during relaxing eyelash extension appointments. That's because the 60- to 90-minute appointments require clients to relax with their eyes closed as experts painstakingly adhere lashes made from human hair to existing lashes one-by-one.
