Working out of Precision Ink tattoo shop, the artists at Precision Ink Permanent Makeup enhance natural beauty with professional SofTap pigments. Applied by hand, the technique creates enduring color on eyebrows, lips, and around eyes and eyelashes, resulting in shorter morning-makeup routines and ensuring faces look great even while sleepwalking.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
At Mario's Massage Therapy, the on-staff therapists are intent on quelling aches and stress. But before they put their hands to work, they hold a pre-massage consultation. This gives clients a chance to point out any areas they'd like the therapist to focus on, such as a sore back or a grumpy skull tattoo. The therapists will then administer a custom-tailored massage that addresses those concerns. They might call on Swedish and deep-tissue kneads, or perhaps lymphatic-drainage treatments or shiatsu. With this range of modalities, therapists have the skills to address both physical and emotional stress: Swedish massage can help clients relax, whereas deep-tissue and shiatsu can help them overcome muscle tension or chronic pain.
At Massaging Palms, a licensed massage therapist quells aches, pains, and stress with calming bodywork treatments. Clients can kick back and relax as the therapist performs Swedish massages, which help foster calmness and feelings of well-being, or deep-tissue massages, which target chronic pain and muscle tension. In addition to these two therapies, the therapist offers prenatal massages for expectant mothers, sports massages for those with active lifestyles, and neuromuscular massages for those suffering from soft-tissue injuries.
Robin Drolla Melancon and her staff pride themselves on handling any emergency that pops up at Nola Hair Salon. Her stylists have performed hair and makeup for six bridesmaids that needed to be wedding-ready by noon, and have squeezed in a shampoo and blowout at 7 p.m. for a businesswoman who had just gotten off a plane from Singapore and had a late dinner meeting. They also handle problem hair with keratin treatments and skin with Nerium anti-aging creams, which rely on the Nerium oleander plant to fight wrinkles.
