As their spa’s name implies, the licensed technicians at Forever Young Bodyworks tap into the fountain of youth with detoxifying body wraps and nourishing facials that soften, hydrate, and set skin aglow. They supplement these skincare treatments with beautifying spray tans, eyelash tinting, and all-over waxing services. Permanent-makeup applications cut time out of the morning routine; similarly, ink-removal sessions save time that would otherwise be wasted explaining tattoos of string-theory equations to nosy strangers on the bus.
At the age of 11, Peggy Newlan began sculpting her mother's hair into beehives and french twists. She practiced on friends and family members, her fingers becoming more and more adept as she styled manes and picked locks. Despite her innate talent for hairstyling, Newlan pursued a career in accounting and banking. Eventually, she returned to her true calling, joined ooh la la Salon, and purchased the company in 2003.
Newlan now leads a team of stylists, as well as a massage therapist and a skincare expert who is an educator at Florida Academy. The beauty specialists perform a variety of services, from cuts, highlights, and ionic hair straightening to nailcare and spa services such as facials, massages, waxes, and spray tans.
Licensed skin therapist and facialist Carleen's business began with wedding makeup applications, but it quickly expanded to provide a well-rounded approach to glowing skin. Now, at Imagine by Carleen, she not only applies makeup, but also performs expert facials and skincare treatments. Her microcurrent therapy, anti-aging face-lifts, and acne facials allow her custom-blended and custom-designed makeup applications to shine even brighter.
