The staff at My Skin Parlour aims to provide physical and mental renewal during every massage or aesthetic appointment as trickling fountains and soft music elevate treatments to experiences for the senses. Heated massage tables play host to couples, expectant mothers, and those who carry friends around in fanny packs as therapists coax pain and tension from backs and shoulders. Licensed aestheticians help skin appear more radiant with a slate of facials and four-layer face-lifts, which tighten and lighten the skin through nourishing doses of vitamin C, glycolic acid, and active enzymes. Rounding out the center?s talents, makeup artists accentuate features with Mary Kay cosmetics and lash extensions, and manicurists add a glossy pop to each digit with luxury manicures and pedicures.
Eman, better known as Mrs. B, has spent her 30-year career as a cosmetology instructor learning just what makes a salon work: quality products and quality education. After taking the reigns of Be⋅You⋅tiful Salon⋅Spa⋅Supply in 2012, Eman stocked its shelves with products from Paul Mitchell, Sebastian, and Nioxin, and made sure her staff received ongoing training from the likes of TIGI and Wella. Within the kid-friendly space, the team takes a holistic approach to beauty and wellness, whether they are straightening hair with formaldehyde-free products, clearing out pores with European facials, or painting nutritional advice onto nails using chip-resistant Shellac polish.
A table of manicure stations sits directly opposite the row of padded pedicure chairs at Simply Nails by Lisa, establishing the salon’s almost singular commitment to reinvigorating spa services for the hands and feet. In addition to trimming nails and applying vibrant coats of polish, the staff members also pamper their clients with treatments such as towel wraps, hot-lotion massages, and exfoliating sea-salt scrubs. As the nail techs gussy up digits, the salon’s aestheticians cater to a variety of cosmetic concerns with facials designed to smoothen skin and waxing treatments that leave chosen body areas as hairless as a sasquatch who lost a bet.
The nail technicians at Bella Piaz Salon & Spa focus on beautifying natural nails. Eschewing acrylics?and the fumes and damaging drilling that come with them?they daub their clients? fingertips with non-formaldehyde polish or CND Shellac. Elsewhere in the salon, a trio of stylists cuts, colors, and adorns hair with feather and tinsel extensions. In the spa, staffers whip up customized facials to target acne and rosacea, or treat guests to other services such as waxing, aromatherapeutic massages, and spa parties for all occasions.
The aestheticians at Young Image Spa rejuvenate skin with a menu that includes facials, peels, waxing, and nail services. Vitamin C facials tackle lackluster cells loitering on the skin's surface, and peels and microdermabrasion treatments go even deeper to even out wrinkles and age spots. Young Image Spa's staff also tend to appendages with mani-pedis that employ products from OPI, CND, and Gelish, ideal for digits prone to inciting thumb wars.
A portrait of fashion icon Marilyn Monroe overlooks the stations at Carmen Laines Beauty Salon & Spa.
