Dozens of makeup compacts add color to the airy interior of Panache Skin Care & Makeup Studio, where beauticians enhance clients' natural features with their own signature line of cosmetics. Of course, makeup is most striking when it's applied to clean, healthy skin, which is why the studio also stocks a full line of professional Dermalogica products.
Panache, however, is much more than a cosmetics studio. The menu of beauty services includes everything from eyebrow threading to exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments. There's also an educational element to the studio?regular makeup lessons teach students how to add just the right amount of blush and how to effectively camouflage oneself in a jungle setting. The studio is also replete with certain perks, such as on-site parking and memberships on a monthly- or yearly-basis.
To more effectively treat a range of skin and hair types, the medically supervised clinicians at Style MedSpa/Laser Hair Removal Center utilize a range of advanced technologies, including long-pulsed Alexandrite, Diode, YAG, and IPL cosmetic laser systems. Although these systems mainly target unwanted stubble, the staff also treats signs of sun damage, fine lines, and spider veins with similar laser therapies. Botox and other dermal fillers are also available to combat aging. Even the teeth-whitening treatments and exfoliating facials rely on cutting-edge equipment from NASA's top-secret spas.
Five minutes. That’s all it takes for Master Eyebrow Threading & Full Services Salon’s technicians to groom bushy brows. And they don’t just do brows; the team twists and turns sturdy thread across lips, chins, and cheeks, grabbing and removing unwanted hair and sewing together oversize pores as they go. Though thread is their favorite tool, the crew trades it in for warm wax to smooth arms, legs, and bikini areas, and uses scissors to snip hair. Clients can match their new ‘dos with a single-process color treatment or luminous highlights. The salon team administers three facial treatments as well, including a traditional European cleansing and a facial massage in 30- and 60-minute intervals.
From electrolysis to haircuts to tanning beds, there's a wealth of reasons a client might waltz into The Spa at Bella Boutique. A licensed staff, under the medical direction of board-certified Dr. Mohktar Asaadi, helps these visitors refine themselves both inside and out. Depending on each client's goals, aestheticians and therapists might administer massages with hot stones or evict unwanted hair. But perhaps their most versatile services are facials, which use products from brands such as Murad, Obagi, and SkinMedicato eliminate imperfections such as acne or the deep wrinkles caused by sleeping on piles of laundry.

Salon Di Panache's Victorian turrets and inviting, wraparound porch give way to a shabby-chic interior filled with glittery chandeliers and plush antique chairs. If it weren't for strategic swathes of leopard-print fabric and the beauty products lining the dark-wood bookshelves, it would be easy to mistake the space for some kind of time warp. Pati and Andy, Salon Di Panache's owners, intentionally built upon the vintage charm of the old house, redesigning its interiors with studded manicure tables and purple velour curtains to put clients at ease and make any nearby ghosts jealous. The duo leads a staff of stylists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and an aesthetician.
Stylists refurbish hair with single- and double-process color and a range of hair- and scalp-conditioning treatments. The aesthetician soothes skin with Aveda's plant-based facials, back facials, body polishes, and specialty treatments, such as a rosemary-mint body wrap. The salon's massage therapists also express creativity with massages that fuse hot stones and botanical essences, as well as the Panache signature massage, conducted atop a heated water table.
Small glowing bulbs line the gabled ceiling like holiday ornaments, illuminating the salon's vine-scored partitions, honey-gold walls, and polished wood floors. Amid these accents, skilled stylists manipulate manes with high-end products by Redken and Paul Mitchell. An aesthetician offers makeup sessions and stifles hair growth by way of waxing, threading, or depriving follicles of vegetables.
