When Eugina started out in the beauty industry more than 30 years ago, she exclusively worked as a hairstylist. But her interest in the field grew, and she soon pursued certifications in aesthetics and nail services, eventually even running salons at the American embassies in Peru and Argentina. Today she shares her talents at Paradise Salon & Day Spa, where the menu reflects her skills with a mix of hair, skin, and body treatments. Consultations precede all hair services, which range from cuts and color to weave applications and natural hair styling. Similarly, a skin analysis helps fine-tune facials customized for blemish-prone, aging, or other complexion types. The body treatments, with their sea salts and detoxifying mud, fit right in with the tropical-themed decor: the front desk is framed in bamboo, and teal walls exactly match the hue of an ocean's mood ring.
Girls aged 3?13 may be a little young to be regularly hitting the spa, but Sassy Princess Spa believes that everyone should be pampered. Age-appropriate music and magazines float around the room as girls wait their turn for such services as mani-pedis and facials. Partiers can add on ? la carte extras to enhance the experience, from touches such as custom decorations and princess cupcakes to activities such as karaoke and a pink carpet fashion show.
Potomac Mills Barber and & Hairstylist features five expert barbers to minimize wait time and accommodate pickup basketball games. The salon also insures ample relaxation by pairing each cut or coloring service with a complimentary hot-towel treatment and client's choice of cool beverage.
Master aesthetician and licensed cosmetologist Cathy Antoniou has sharpened her skills in almost every nook and cranny of the beauty world during her 20 years in the industry. Today, she works out of Masters Salons, a studio space where she performs everything from haircuts and Brazilian blowouts to waxing and laser hair removal. Like the number of dwarves Snow White had before one left for college, Cathy also brightens complexions with eight different types of facial treatments.
