Sharmilla Hira might be new to Heidi's Salon, but she's accumulated more than a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, training on various procedures throughout Europe and the United States. As an aesthetician, she puts this experience to use through skincare treatments including facials, microdermabrasion, and threading. However, her true specialty is permanent makeup; during her application sessions, she helps define the eyes and mouth with natural pigments, and adds extra color to cheeks, lips, and invisible freckles. She also uses her services to correct various physical conditions; she can disguise stretch marks, replenish brows or hairlines affected by alopecia, or reconstruct areolas after a mastectomy or breast enhancement.
The Fuzion Studios family includes hairstylists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians—all with the same goal of beautifying their guests. One member of the family, Kayla Ross, spends her days removing unwanted hair on the face, and smoothing skin with exfoliation treatments and seaweed body wraps. She also uses her steady hands to apply makeup, primping clients for special occasions or special nights out.
S.T. Hair & Spa’s accommodating stylists listen to clients and offer stylish suggestions before cutting curls, trimming beards, and ridding faces of unwanted fuzz. Other services include perms and keratin treatments to reformulate hair texture, and deep-conditioning and gloss treatments to bolster follicle strength and shine. Regular and chip-resistant polishes dress up digits during manicures and pedicures, and stylists can create updos to prep individuals or parties for weddings, proms, or formal trips to the supermarket.
Licensed aesthetician Traci Scribner grooms bodies in a salon full of tasteful furniture, flower vases, and other attractive touches. Thorough Brazilian treatments wick away bikini-area bristles using a pliable, hard wax that smooths skin without the need for muslin strips. Unlike shaving or igniting, waxing can banish hair for up to one month. Grab the one-wax option for a single serving of deforestation, or cop a series of three to stay sleek for an entire semester abroad in Atlantis. Floral artwork hangs from the walls of the earth-toned salon, which features a private room where natural light streams through curtains and onto a bed covered in a soft blanket and fluffy towels.
Estilo Salon doles out chic cuts and peerless waxes, and its extensive service menu has drawn a host of dedicated customers. Ladies can scale back overgrown tresses with a woman's cut and style ($30–$40), and gentlemen can lower business partners’ arched eyebrows by shortening their mohawks ($18–$20). Lighten locks with a coloring treatment (up to $70), use highlights to single out vital strands for upcoming tests (up to $70), or choose both in a nearly two-hour process ($94).
Kelly Wood learned empathy at a young age. Her family was very involved with their local volunteer fire department and rescue squad, inspiring her to pursue a career in healing. Now she's a licensed and board-certified massage therapist who taps into her reserves of compassion on a daily basis at Revitalized Life Massage Therapy.
In the comfort of a private room, she employs trigger-point therapy to help banish deeply rooted pain, and she hones in on aches in lower-layer muscles and connective tissues with deep-tissue techniques. Because Kelly's massage menu is always expanding, her clients will soon be able to request aromatherapy to temper their stress or canine massage to limber up enough to chase the mailman.
