If you bring along your favorite lipstick or eyeliner, Sheley Davis can ensure a nearly identical shade lives permanently on your face. The founder of LypsInk matches the permanent makeup that she implants on the lips, around the eyes, or amid existing eyebrow hairs with her customers' favorite makeup colors. But unlike the makeup, her pigments beautify the face indefinitely and without daily touchups. After 17 years in the permanent-cosmetics field and with more than 200,000 procedures under her belt, Davis can vouch for pigments' staying power with confidence.
Whether looking to improve their skin's condition or enhance it, The Glamour Co. has clients covered. Under the direction of licensed aesthetician Pamela Abshear, the staff diminishes imperfections, such as fine lines and acne scars, with microdermabrasion—a process that uses a diamond-tipped wand to remove dead skin cells. The staff also renders mascara obsolete by darkening, curling, or adding length to lashes for weeks on end. For more permanent beauty, Abshear lines the eyes, lips, or brows with permanent-makeup pigment.
Though Sharron Nicklas is a certified lash stylist, you won't want the multiple tiers of extensions that other studios boast. That's because she only stocks Xtreme Lashes, a line she's trained with and believes in. Inside her private studio, she plays the role of artist in creating lash lines that accentuate eyes without overwhelming the face. Sharron also performs mani-pedis and brow tinting.
