It's no surprise that the earth-conscious stylists at Willie & Coote Salon use Aveda products. Aveda relies on botanically based ingredients that have as little an impact on the environment as possible. The eco-friendly brand's shampoos, conditioners, and colors stock the salon's shelves, where stylists select the proper ones for haircuts and coloring treatments. With face-framing cuts and accentuating color in place, the staff applies makeup, tints lashes and brows, and performs hair and eyelash extensions.
The techs at Simply Organic Tanning know all the ingredients in their tanning solutions, and they aren't shy about informing clients. That's because the ingredients are organic and safe for skin. These concoctions gently mist epidermises to create flawless tans that range from a subtle sun-kissed glow to a deep bronze color. The techs also tend to pre- and post-tan skin with organic products, such as the Wild Rose Beauty Balm. This concoction can be used as a cleanser, as a balm, or as a quick fix for a squeaky hinge.
Held by a steady hand, the aesthetician's tweezers dart in, leaving behind a single strand of hair resting on client's eyelash. The deft maneuver seems nigh impossible, but practice leads to perfection. The lash technicians at Amazing Lash Studio have each performed such movements thousands of times, granting them both confidence and speed. They use their hard-won skill to gift clients with full, natural-looking eyelashes that - thanks to the water-proof bonding agent they use - last up to 90 days, unless you live underwater and are just a fish trying to pass as a human.
Aesthetician Yvette Umana's passion for skincare comes from her clients?specifically, in seeing how happy they are after an effective treatment. It's for this reason she counters beauty concerns with a wide list of services. Her anti-aging facials make skin appear smoother without daily applications of Scotch tape, and her purifying facials work to unclog pores with natural acids. Yvette also removes unwanted hair with waxing, and enhances the eyes with eyelash extensions.
KoCo Powell showcases her mastery of cosmetic techniques in Lashes and Makeup?s lavender-toned studio, as well as on her biweekly CBS 11 segment, Let KoCo Try It Before You Buy It. Her staple service consists of the individual application of pre-curled Xtreme Lashes extensions, which enhance eyelids for up to two months despite showering, swimming, or trying to see what?s inside a sprinkler. Additionally, KoCo can enhance thinning brows with teeny wigs made from natural hair or artful stenciling, giving brows a dark, even appearance in a shape that best suits each client's face. Strands aside, KoCo also uses her eye for style to help glamorize clients with makeup and airbrush-tanning sessions.
From the moment clients walk into Pouf, the salon's hip sense of style is on display. Checkered flooring and mod white chairs give the blowdry bar a charming vintage feel. But the boutique's charm is more than skin deep. Each blowout is accompanied by a complimentary scalp massage and stylists only use cruelty-free haircare by Kevin Murphy. Pouf's team, lead by owners Nas Sabeti and Maryam Salassi, also goes the extra mile by adding elegant braids and mile-long extensions to any 'dos. They also deploy GloMinerals cosmetics to create special occasion looks. This attention to detail has earned the salon praise from D Magazine and Advocate Magazine.
