Over the last 10 years, licensed aesthetician Keri Sweet has mastered a slew of beautifying techniques. At Pro Radiance Artistry, she specializes in bronzing bods with airbrush spray tans, sculpting sensuous brows, and enriching faces with subtle makeup. She even offers beautifying treatments especially for brides, from arranging hair into elegant updos to elongating lashes. Though brides can come to her, Keri will also happily travel to them. In fact, she frequently takes her Pro Radiance gear on the road, anywhere from homes to movie sets for services such as makeup lessons or individual spray tans.
Within the fuchsia walls of Luniac Glamour, stylist Jamie Bomback enhances eyes with alluring eyelash extensions. Lashes, available in an array of lengths and colors, adhere to lash lines to add length and definition, and last for three to four weeks before falling off naturally. Bomback also enhances eyelids with clear adhesive crystals, which add sparkle to every blink and help clients send Morse code messages across the dance floor.
At Bella Piel, licensed aesthetician Debbie Cunha cossets the epidermal canvas with aesthetic services that rely on the beautifying powers of light. During light-focused services, Debbie beams each different shade of the visible spectrum onto the skin to treat corresponding skin problems. Red light helps reverse sagging skin and promote fat burning, blue light saves sensitive skin from acne and inflammation, and green light helps reduce under-eye circles and gives the body the ok to move forward with its TV pilot. Aside from color-coded cosmetic treatments, she also cleanses, exfoliates, and massages visages during facials and uses a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand to slough dead skin, lighten scars, and increase collagen production.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
Awarded Best Pedicure of 2009 by Rhode Island Monthly, Naturally Nails’ techs gussy-up hands and feet with creative nail art and spa treatments in a chic studio with complimentary beverages. Peruse the 130+ gel polishes, including the award-winning Young Nails line, before a ‘curist begins to shape each nail. During the gel manicure, each freshly prepped ‘tip receives a shiny gel shield that keeps the original sheen and color without chipping or cracking for up to two weeks. A skin-smoothing sugar scrub rounds out the rejuvenating service before a warm paraffin treatment leaves paws softer than a velour rabbit crooning Barry White songs. Opt for a no-frills ‘cure with the basic mani, which cleans up fingertips with a shaping, cuticle trim, traditional polishing, and relaxing hand massage.
Organical Botanical offers holistic health services and places emphasis on treating Mother Nature the right way. The pamper palace's well-trained staff uses a slew of handcrafted, organic massage oils and creams to provide the therapeutic benefits of massage. The organic Swedish massage uses a soothing full-body technique, featuring flowing strokes and organic, cold-pressed vegetable oils to relieve stress and prepare the body to be pelted by children throwing containers of Mrs. Dash. For a full-body relaxation experience with the added benefit of soothing smells, the aromatherapy massage balances wobbly mental and physical states with a massage paired with selected organic essential oils. Weekend warriors or the once-injured can find reprieve with the deep-tissue therapy, a treatment that targets deeper layers of muscles in a specific problem zone to loosen taut muscles and increase the ability to squeeze into ductwork.
