Each of Ashlynn Plummer’s trendy haircuts and color services is accompanied by a relaxing steamed-towel aromatherapy-oil hand massage. The stylist works inside Amelia Gray Studio, which encompasses a shabby-chic ethos, with decorative window panes that hang from the ceiling, weathered wood floors, and a tufted couch in soft gray. Old doors are repurposed as workstations, where Ashlynn and her cohorts beautify clients using Wella products.
Stylists at Paul-Mitchell salons tend to be well educated and well equipped with specially-formulated products, and the staffers at Revelations Salon & Spa are no exception. This fact qualifies them to perform some unusual services, such as color extensions, feather extensions, and an Awapuhi wild-ginger KeraTriplex treatment. The stylists also mix custom formulas at the color bar, where clients can watch their hair color being made in the same way they would watch a teppanyaki chef making their dinner or a farmer growing their lunch. Services aren't reserved only for the hair, either; the salon also cleanses the skin with facials that use products from JanMarini and Bioelements.
At the time Doctor Rotskoff graduated from Washington University, he was one of only 30 doctors in the country to hold dual degrees in medicine and dentistry. He went on to combine his specialty in oral maxillofacial surgery with his expertise in cosmetic surgery, and is considered an authority on facial reconstruction in addition to body contouring and laser skin rejuvenation. When he isn't lecturing to national and international audiences or authoring chapters for leading medical journals, Dr. Rotskoff joins Dr. Timothy Gillum, a board-certified surgeon specializing in both head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Together, they oversee a staff of laser technicians who help patients discover less-invasive ways to turn back the clock. Wielding Syneron laser technology, they usher unwanted stubble off the body's map and help erase signs of aging with microdermabrasion, photofacial treatments, and ReFirme skin tightening. Renew Cosmetic Spa offers complimentary consultations to all prospective patients, encouraging them to visit the center, learn about the treatments from a specialist, and claim a favorite chair in the waiting room.
Eyes by India first opened its doors in Indiana to provide threading as an alternative to waxing. Threading is more precise than waxing and causes less pain, redness, and burning when removing unwanted fuzz. Now with nine locations in two states, Eyes by India’s staff of specialists completes more than 100 hours of training in threading and service etiquette before applying those skills to patrons’ faces at work and image-conscious teddy bears at home. During appointments, cotton thread twists over hair, tweaking hairlines and brow lines or removing all traces of fuzz on the neck, chin, or upper lip.
