Stacie Spears has learned plenty in her 10 years as an aesthetician. She specializes in brows and Brazilian waxes, but one of her marquee services is the four-layer facial, a nourishing regimen of European seaweed that makes the skin glow like Edison's mother when she first heard about her son's invention. At Salon Loft, she offers this specialty, as well as numerous other facials, waxing services, and custom spray tans. She's also a makeup artist who founded her own company, meaning she's trained to amplify beauty from the deepest pore to the outermost layer of blush.
With more than a decade of skin whispering under his belt, licensed aesthetician Matthew Hoenie helps his clients look youthful and stunning. At City Skin, the seasoned skincare specialist prevents and fights rosacea, acne, sun damage, and aging with PCA Skin products and prepares faces for fashion shows and proms with eye-catching makeup designs. Hoenie's steady hands also soothe sore muscles with relaxation massages and whisk away men's and women's unwanted hair with warm wax.
Rather than dabbling in exotic or off-the-wall massage types, Jay Stanforth LMT has spent more than 700 classroom hours honing his proficiency in just three modalities: Swedish, deep tissue, and therapeutic sports. With these three styles, he can customize soothing and healthy massages across the entire spectrum of needs, from stiffness and muscle cramping to simply needing to relax. He works in a studio in the heart of downtown, just a short walk from the Ohio Statehouse.
Lizz Waggoner has been a cosmetologist for more than 10 years, but that hasn’t stopped her from learning the beauty industry’s latest trends. She does this in order to provide her clients with the modern looks they desire. And though she expertly clips hair, she is also extremely well-versed in color treatments—she considers creating highlights, lowlights, and all-over hues one of her greatest passions, relying on Matrix, Redken, and Paul Mitchell products.
Hairstyling by Samantha’s staff splashes color and style into hair with a wide range of services.
