Once a licensed athletic trainer at the University of North Texas, Laura DePiazza calls on her corporeal expertise to assuage muscular tension with a spectrum of massage modalities. Before each treatment, she takes time to discuss issues with clients, whether they have questions about technique or mysterious pockets of tension. While she specializes in Swedish and sports massage, she also culls from several modalities during more targeted pro massage, which includes deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point techniques, focusing on specific body parts if necessary. To customize each massage, Laura is also willing to collaborate with the client’s chiropractor and physician.
SkinFit Nation's aestheticians perform a panoply of services, with a lot of different goals in mind. However, each treatment shares the common goal of improving the skin. The staff use sugaring and waxing treatments to get rid of unwanted hair and show off smooth skin. They apply chemical peels and facials to even out pigment or diminish the appearance of wrinkles or acne. At times they tint the skin itself with airbrush tanning services, then dye eyelashes and eyebrows to complement new skin tones. When required, they blast away the top layer of dead skin cells with a microdermabrasion treatment, revealing fresh skin underneath and proving to everyone that you aren't just a robot in a person suit.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
The Skin Spa’s licensed aesthetician, Kellen Crawford, uses Rhonda Allison skincare products, with which she has extensive training. Kellen didn’t start using this product line by accident. A few years back, when she was frustrated with adult acne, she began trying Rhonda Allison products, in addition to skin peels and microdermabrasion. These were the tools Kellen used to improve her complexion, and she carries the resulting inspiration with her every day as she renders custom facials, vitamin therapy, body treatments, and waxing services, not to mention the chemical peels that she found so helpful.
Christina Lynn favors funky, creative cuts. The stylist and graduate of North Texas Central Cosmetology lets her creativity blossom at Twisted Heads Salon, where she transforms overgrown locks or mundane styles into fresh hairdos that leap to life with color. Christina also specializes in hot fusion extensions, and she can transition from funky to classic with ease. The latter comes in handy when she performs special event hairstyling, sculpting elegant hairdos for weddings, proms, and laundry night at the queen's home.
