Camerino Professional Makeup began more than 22 years ago in Venezuela, when a family of makeup artists wanted to create an environment where customers could feel comfortable and beautiful. Now they have expanded to the United States, where the company’s founders and master makeup artists provide expert makeup artistry and cosmetics classes. Armed with their signature cosmetic line, Camerino makeup artists glam up ladies with professional makeup applications, specializing in eyebrow design, eyelash extensions, perming, and tinting. They also lead express, personalized, and professional makeup classes to teach students how to apply the techniques themselves.
In her 20 years in the aesthetics field, Virginia Garcia has built quite a multifaceted resume. She has not only worked as a medical aesthetician and permanent-makeup artist, but also as a journalist who has written articles on the topics of nutrition and professional aesthetics. Not surprisingly then, her service menu at LunaSkin is expansive, incorporating everything from lash extensions to body-contouring treatments, including ultrasonic cavitation and herbal wraps.
She performs her longtime specialties, too, of course, with facials that often include such add-ons as radio-frequency treatments, ultrasound therapy, and buckets of glitter, as well as permanent makeup for the brows, eyes, and lips.
The specialists at Holistic Derma Spa help bring inner beauty to the surface with a menu of services designed to refresh epidermal expanses and rejuvenate the mind. An array of facials helps remedy skin maladies such as blemishes, aging, and hyperpigmentation, and electrolysis sessions bombard unwanted hairs with small electrical currents that leave skin smooth and fuzz-free. During Swedish massage sessions, clients float away on a cloud of relaxation as a therapist soothes their body with long, flowing strokes that boost circulation. The multitalented team can also speed up morning beauty routines with permanent makeup and reverse tooth discoloration with in-office teeth-whitening treatments.
Within the funky, upbeat confines of this Paul Mitchell Focus studio, D&L’s follicular fanatics refurbish lady locks and man manes with timeless and inimitable looks. Opt for a sassy snip and clip with an advanced hair artist ($65), or master hair artist ($75), all schooled in the art of noggin nest rejuvenation. A hair blow ($45) imparts beautiful blasts of heat for precisely sculpted scalps (included with all cuts), and the uptown girl ($75) upsweeps strands for special occasions such as weddings, high-school reunions, or upscale stuffed-animal parties.
Upon arrival at Myra & Company's multifaceted beauty emporium, guests are warmly greeted and ushered into either a tranquil treatment room or the state-of-the-art Pilates studio. Body-buffers can relax and unwind as an expert scrubber sweeps away dead skin cells during the 30-minute invigorating body scrub. Choose from one of seven specially scented scrubs, such as Sacred Earth, a mixture of vanilla, cinnamon, and shea butter, or Transcendent Sun, a holiday spice, cocoa butter, and superheated-ionized-hydrogen scrub. To loosen, strengthen, and lengthen the body, opt for a quintuplet of Pilates Equipment classes, an exercise system based on balance, strength, and flexibility. During each 60-minute class, students target a variety of muscle groups using a system of floor exercises and innovative Pilates equipment. Or, combat stress, aging, and the negative effects of the environment with a rejuvenating collagen and vitamin C facial. The 90-minute hydrating facial employs a bevy of antioxidants to stimulate cell growth and fight free radicals and beauty-ambushing wrinkle guerrillas.
Detlev Hair Studio's experienced aestheticians smooth out hirsute humans with follicle-felling treatments culled from its extensive menu of waxing services.

Salon-goers can rid shoulders of fuzz ($25), neaten up a bikini line ($28), or de-fur chests ($40) while tucked within the angular, modern confines of Detlev’s cosmetically minded atelier. Detlev aids busy clients in their hair-removal quest by keeping doors open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, removing unwanted stubble before morning commutes or after evening werewolf hunts.
