La Bella Salon owner Michele Daniels's handpicked staff of stylists wields Paul Mitchell products to snip and style coifs in a sunlit, hardwood-floored space. Wielding skills honed at monthly training sessions, they'll bond or sew in extensions, weave braids, and highlight hair with bold color as clients recline in sleek chrome salon chairs. Alternatively, aestheticians wax fuzz from faces or revivify visages with antioxidant-packed chocolate treatments, tightening collagen masks, and deep-cleansing serums during a medley of facials.
Client satisfaction takes top priority at Eclipse Hair Design. A skilled team of stylists work to establish relationships with their customers, ensuring each haircut suits their tastes and preferred type of hat. Should a more dramatic makeover be desired, color services and keratin smoothing treatments can transform tresses.
Wood floors, warm lights, and modern decor highlight Image Hair Studio, where stylists and staff work from a full menu of hair and waxing treatments. At their workstations, skilled stylists outfit men’s, women’s, and children’s heads with fashionable cuts. Those wanting an entirely new look can go for single- or double-process color. Other treatments such as partial highlights accentuate warm or cool skin tones or draw attention away from unicorn-horn implants gone awry. Additionally, staff uses hot and cold waxes to remove unwanted hairs on the face and body.
Branching from a hallway adorned with hanging plants are private treatment rooms painted a soft sage green. In these tranquil nooks, aestheticians perform various facials that imbue expressions with youthful radiance and clarity. Several facials include steam cleaning, extractions, staring contests, and masks; more specialized services, such as back facials and anti-aging facials, nurture skin with products of marine origin. Massage therapists direct their attention to knots below the skin with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
Ever since she was a young girl, Sonia Singh knew she wanted to be an aesthetician. After years of study and training, Sonia teamed up with dermatologist Dr. Anita Henderson to open Luna's Day Spa in Columbia and Luna's Medi Spa in Ellicott City. Today, the aestheticians beautify and educate clients about how to keep complexions as radiant as a flashlight powered by hope. They apply Dead Sea mud and seaweed wraps to fortify skin with natural botanicals and nutrients, all of which are explained in detail during treatments. They dispense this knowledge with the backup beats of the spas' soft music, which often accompanies soothing aromatherapy treatments.
