At About Face by Erica, aesthetician Erica Stevenson focuses on “the art of staying young,” refreshing clients with facial treatments, makeup applications, and waxing. She also helps keep clients feeling as young as possible with comprehensive makeup-application lessons and tips on which restaurants still sell kids’ menu items to nonminors. Such services are complemented by the work of resident stylist Kelly Mitecki, who performs special-occasion services such as bridal updos.
For Lisa Ciaravino, permanent makeup isn't just a way to earn a living; it's a way to help restore and build her clients' confidence by creating an outer beauty that reflects their inner beauty. She founded Natural Beauty to share her vision, cultivating a long list of services from permanent cosmetics and teeth whitening to skin needling and tattoo removal. Recently, she has started utilizing intense pulsed light to battle toenail fungus and age spots. She also stocks her shelves with a wide array of products such as HCG diet supplements, eyelash enhancer, and Cynergy-brand skincare products.
The expansive menu of beauty services at Custom Beaute Permanent Makeup, Dermal Solutions and Wellness Clinic addresses aesthetic concerns from head to toe. Electrolysis wipes out stubborn hair across faces, stomachs, and all 11 toes. Facials help to refurbish skin, while airbrush tans and eyelash extensions add oomph to personal appearances. The staff also tackles issues below the surface of the skin–from headaches to fibromyalgia to plantar fasciitis–using therapeutic massage.
A former model with a degree in health sciences, Indulgences' owner Lois Lawrence marries her love of aesthetics with her dedication to holistic well-being, resulting in an assortment of treatments that celebrates the inextricable link between health and beauty. With upwards of twenty years of industry experience, she makes a concerted effort to stay abreast on current spa trends such as silhouette chiseling vacuum contour therapy and anti-aging facelift facials. The spa's buttery yellow walls and cheerfully appointed private treatment rooms reflects Lois' commitment to her clients' comfort, her penchant for hospitality, and her debilitating allergy to gloom. Further proof of her dedication to fostering a relaxed atmosphere can be found when the outdoor air takes a turn for the summery and Lois beckons clients out onto the plant-dappled deck to unwind before or after treatments.
