The brainchild of independent entrepreneur Bianca Jackson, B-Lashes Beauty Parlor both distributes lashes for a leading overseas manufacturer and dispenses them at Bianca's storefront location, a "lash lounge" that specializes in eyelash extensions. Her staff of certified technicians enhances glances with synthetic mink and silk extensions selected by clients from a variety of colors, textures, sizes, and thicknesses. Unlike many brands, which deliver tacky-looking strips or thin lashes still bearing gluey residue, Bianca's lashes are lush and luxurious, adding naturally-looking body and volume to each sultry wink. That's why they're the lashes of choice for a who's who of notable local personalities. Specialized gels bond the formaldehyde-free lashes to existing natural lashes, with results lasting more than six weeks. Clients wear the extensions while showering, sleeping, and even chopping onions. In addition to offering lash enhancements, Bianca also bolsters looks with permanent-makeup applications and waxing services.
Exquisite Threading's eyebrow-fashioning operation is led by a team of experienced threaders plying the ancient depilatory art in a soothing environment. Brow bearers seeking a refined look recline in the studio's comfy chairs as expert weavers adroitly lasso loitering hairs, expelling them at the root. A natural and chemical-free treatment, threading spares patrons much of the discomfort, swelling, and redness of waxing.
Integrated Touch & Bodywork's skilled and licensed technicians deftly remove unwanted hair from nether regions, keeping areas bare for swimsuit season. Delicate hands daub targeted areas with soy wax, which locks on to the follicle fillers and enables quick removal of the hair all the way down to the roots. Lasting approximately 45–60 minutes, the process leaves a parcel of smooth skin that can remain sleek up to four weeks, easily enough time to infiltrate the secret mannequin cabal.
For some salons, threading is just an afterthought—a treatment tacked onto a long list of services in an attempt to stay abreast of the latest trends. But at Exquisite Threading, the ancient Indian art is front and center, headlining a treatment menu that bears little else beyond facials, body waxing, and intricate henna treatments. The focus allows the shop's eyebrow artists, who average 10 years of experience, to concentrate on creating clean, elegant arches in an environment free from the din of blow dryers. The threading process relies solely upon the quick loopings of a 100% cotton string, which whisks away facial hair without the irritation of shaving or the seasonal limitations of bobbing for hot caramel apples.:
