As a freelance cosmetologist and stylist, Melanie King of Fierce and Fancy travels to her clients' homes to put into practice her formal training from the Aveda Institute and four years of experience as a MAC makeup artist. When cutting, coloring, or relaxing hair, she treats strands to high-quality products from Moroccanoil, Redken, and Mizani. She applies the same level of care to faces, waxing or threading away unwanted hair, brushing lids with shadow, and imparting helpful tips to clients during cosmetic lessons that bring out cheekbones and mask extra noses.
Anyone who works in art restoration can tell you that to do a good job, you have to consider the piece as a whole. The aestheticians and massage therapists at Skin and Body Solutions Day Spa have the same philosophy, which is why their menu extends past facials to include body wraps, massages, and even airbrush tanning. The express facial quickly cleanses and exfoliates the skin before a custom rubberizing mask finishes perfecting with toning and hydration. Clients in the mood for heavy-duty restoration can opt for the Whole ShaBang—an 85-minute facial that includes deep cleansing, a yogurt peel, an oxygen wrap, and a seaweed mask before finishing with fireworks, flying doves, and a standing ovation. Full-body waxing services remove unwanted hair obscuring facial features, and airbrush tanning imparts a golden-brown hue. Massage services disentangle muscle knots and include a paraffin foot wrap.
Salon Olines, one of the pioneering businesses to make the Bishop Arts District its home, matches its contemporary vibe with a selection of diverse and high-quality hair services. Exposed ductwork, an open interior, and all-new chairs and light fixtures create a charming atmosphere where the friendly staff does much more than just help manage the hair of their female clientele. They also offer haircuts for men, perform Brazilian blowouts, and attach lash extensions to increase the return on eye batting.
Crystal at Beauty Is...Makeup & Style Salon does it all. Anything Crystal's clients need, she delivers, from basic mani-pedis to the industry's most complex treatments. Airbrushing creates a sleek, professional appearance, and tattoo-concealing treatments can hide "I Love Mom" tattoos whenever it's not Mother's Day. The salon can extend eyelashes, sculpt eyebrows, and recreate your favorite makeups with custom blending techniques. If you're looking for a fun-filled night out with friends, consider one of the salon's Beauty 101 events and private workshops.
