At Bare Skin Spa, the staff’s chief philosophy likens your face to your physique; if you want it to appear firm and fit you'd better have a regular fitness routine—just as if you want your face to appear more youthful and healthy you’d better have a regular skincare regimen. Much like personal trainers, the staffers customize their services to suit various goals and body types. They draw from a lineup of products, including Éminence Organics, Dermalogica, and glo therapeutics, to combat skin ailments from acne to fine lines and incorporate natural ingredients, such as paprika, blueberries, and pumpkin, into their peels. Further beautifying their clients, they conduct waxing treatments and microcurrent facelifts, which strive to smooth away wrinkles without surgery or the hassles of ironing your face every morning.
With the spa's membership program, they take the gym analogy even further, rewarding participants with discounts and a monthly facial, peel, or microdermabrasion appointment.
At UR FabuLash, licensed lash tech Dina uses Lavish Lashes to give eyes more oomph, enhancing length and thickness to lashes and eliminating the need for mascara. To achieve that fuller look, Dina applies lashes one-by-one to the upper eyelid, and—for an even more voluminous appearance—she can add extensions to the lower lashes, as well.
For the past two decades, Liz Appleby has been perfecting the art of precision cuts and color treatments across all hair types. She invites clients into her intimate studio where she snips hair into face-flattering shapes or completely transforms tresses with extensions, relaxers, and formal updos.
People say protein is an integral part of a healthy diet, but at Salon Des Amis, the stylists don’t feed it to clients—they slather their hair in it. The salon’s Brazilian blowouts coat each strand in protective protein, thereby minimizing frizz, enhancing shine, and boosting manageability. Besides the protein-rich blowout formula, stylists also ply tresses with products from American Crew, Sebastian, and Rusk as they snip face-flattering cuts, paint in color, and craft stylish, gravity-defying updos.

As a regional educator for American Crew, it’s no wonder stylist Melissa Mollenhoff understands the aesthetics of the male face. To accentuate surly façades, she relies on her keen eye for shape and form—as well as her sense of style—to mute rigid brows, bring out cheek bones, and elongate jawlines with a range of classic and wild cuts. In her career, she has become so adept at this skill that, when not shoring up necklines and detailing sideburns in Eden Prairie, she works American Crew shows, where she demonstrates her cutting abilities on live models.
