A license in cosmetology isn't enough for a stylist to hit the floor at T'nT Concept Salon—they also have to go through the salon's own training program. After that, they have all of the skills necessary to perform the services on the salon's menu, which include haircuts, conditioning treatments, beard trims, extensions, updos, permanent waves, and smoothing keratin treatments. The salon also houses a color bar, where the staff mixes hues for highlights and all-over color treatments and where many Crayola crayons mistakenly go for a drink.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
The professionals at Laser Technique, LLC by Skin & Laser Diva draw upon their experience as medical aestheticians and certified laser technician when performing laser and IPL procedures at Laser Technique, LLC by Skin & Laser Diva. Therapeutic laser beams aim to reduce unwanted stubble and combat leg and facial veins. Procedures can also resurface faces, leaving behind glowing complexions so patrons can remove the reading lights clipped to their noses. And laser-free facial treatments can likewise brighten skin; these treatments include chemical peels and Vibradermabrasion.
The team at NuDaya MedSpa & Weight Loss Centers uses high-tech means to improve clients' appearances. A collection of lasers erases wrinkles, spider veins, and patches of body hair, and a device called the Lumicell Touch irons out cellulite lumps with mechanized massage. Even the weight-loss plans incorporate modern methods; lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants help patients slim down so that they can fit into their skinny jeans or form-fitting choir robes.
Affordable Laser & MedSpa's technicians usher in the next generation of aesthetic trends by surfing the crest of beauty technology. At two locations, they draw upon an arsenal of lasers, SkinCeuticals serums, and beauty injectables to help reverse time's effects on the face and to carve bodies into more slender, smoother versions of themselves. Their Candela laser systems, for example, remove unwanted hair from all skin types by penetrating the epidermal surface without damage and heating up the hair root. And that targeted efficiency continues throughout their other treatments, such as LipoDissolve, which uses microinjections to break down localized fat deposits, and microdermabrasion, in which a diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the very outer layer of skin cells to leave faces smoother and more radiant than Don Juan wearing a fluorescent leisure suit.
In 2010, Up Close Beauty tacked “Max” onto the end of its name to reflect the continued dedication and drive to dole out exceptional beauty services from each stylist, aesthetician, nail technician, and therapist. Owner Michelle Mai—an experienced hair colorist, extension artist, and aesthetician—guides the staff as they beautify exteriors with the latest brands, including Paul Mitchell haircare, Cellex-C skincare, and OPI nail polishes.
As clients relax in the jacuzzi tub or on two massage tables in Up Close's spa room, aestheticians revive lackluster visages in a room of their own, performing facials, microdermabrasions, and chemical peels. Out on the salon floor, stylists beautify manes with snap-on and glue-in hair extensions and hair-straightening services such as the De Fabulous Kerafusion, which irons out strands for up to six months with a protein complex infused with mineral oils, shea butter, and cocoa butter, without including harsh fumes or smoke. Clients can also indulge in a traditional or gel mani-pedi, more than 10 massages, or radial-endodermo-therapy sessions designed to clean out the lymphatic system and help banish cellulite to the body's black hole, located directly behind the spleen.
