If a jack of all trades is a master of none, then the aestheticians at Eyebrow Hub can safely call themselves masters of the art of eyebrow threading. They rid hirsute foreheads of unwanted stragglers, leaving behind gorgeously arched brows, but none of the redness, swelling, or amorous bees left by waxing. Despite the name, the threadsters also apply their hair-removal services to other areas, including upper lips, chins, and legs. Guests with a mind to supplement their threading, can go in for henna tattoos, eyelash extensions, and microdermabrasion.
Dr. Barbara Persons, a board-certified plastic surgeon, pares her experience as a surgeon with an artistic vision in all of her procedures. Her areas of specialty include both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, and helping new mothers to get back to 'pre-baby' weight.
Before Dr. Michelle Place—a specialist in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery—began helping clients discover new looks for themselves, she went on a journey of self-discovery herself, receiving her credentials through her own version of the Great American Road Trip. Born in South Africa, Dr. Place studied biology in California, attained her medical degree in Texas, and completed a surgical internship in Virginia before moving back to the Golden State to complete general surgery and plastic surgery residencies. At her private practice, the board-certified plastic surgeon and her team enhance clients’ faces and bodies with procedures ranging from breast augmentation and liposuction to face-lifts, laser hair removal, and eyelid surgery to make the eyes appear younger in lieu of covering them with funky dorm-wall tapestries.
For 15 years, Loann Mai has transformed clients? hair from familiar dos into breathtaking new styles with her precise, professional cuts.

Marc Beccia is all about the little details. That?s why when clients want a tattoo that perfectly resembles a personal photograph, they come to him. His mastery lies in his knack for shading, which accurately captures the subtle highlights of a person?s face, a building?s wood grain, or a favorite suitcase brand?s trademark symbol to give his designs the illusion of three dimensions. The shop continues to cultivate the little details that help make up a person?s style with body piercings, urban clothing, and a selection of gold teeth.
When Pamela Troyan opened Salon Secrets Spa in 1993, she set out with a clear goal: to provide clients with a refuge from their daily pressures via the best possible salon and spa experience. She staffed her salon with highly trained stylists and technicians, many of whom studied at elite academies such as Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and Aveda. She also enrolled Salon Secrets Spa as a certified Aveda Signature Salon, meaning that all of their services (except nail coloring) would employ all-natural, organic Aveda products. With the salon fully staffed and stocked with elite stylists and luxe products, it was time to open. Since then, not much has changed: Pamela still oversees a team of well-educated stylists and technicians who’ve developed a loyal following of repeat customers and amateur paparazzi. Stylists customize looks with organic Aveda color services, as well as mani-peds, paraffin treatments, waxing, and Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions. The spa staff soothes bodies with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion, as well as massages and body wraps. The med spa also beautifies patients with cosmetic services such as skin rejuvanation, VelaShape cellulite reduction, and spider-vein treatments performed or supervised by a certified plastic surgeon.
