Radiant Skin Care Spa lives up to its name, brightening complexions with spa services powered by Dermalogica, Glytone, and Bare Minerals products. Aestheticians enhance the smoothing power of facials by whisking away dead skin cells with crystal microdermabrasion sessions and chemical peels. They also nix errant fuzz with hair removal treatments that use warm wax, electrolysis, or IPL lasers with built-in cooling devices. Aromatherapy and hot stone massages slowly release tension in the back and limbs, leaving clients relaxed and stress-free. Nails aren’t neglected, either; technicians coat digits with colorful CND shellacs that can withstand cracks caused by car door handles and house keys set to "attack mode".
After 18 years spent helping her clients get the hairstyles of their dreams, Kara Evans was finally able to realize her own lifelong dream of opening her own salon. Since March of 2012, she’s helmed the wheel of Bella Tula Salon, where her scissoring and hair coloring skills are complemented by other aesthetic services such as special occasion makeup. Hair remains her greatest passion, however, so she pulls products by Kuene and Pureology to aid her as she tends to the tresses of both men and women. Beyond custom cuts, her specialties include corrective color and thermal straightening, as well as children’s mohawks, which give kids the extra inches they need to finally ride roller coaters by themselves.
Led by licensed aesthetician licensed vocational nurse Cindy Hunt, the laser specialists and aestheticians at Derma-Aesthetic Laser and Electrolysis Center operate under the slogan "reveal the beauty within," and deploy current technology to address a range of cosmetic concerns. Wielding an FDA-approved device, technicians help to diminish the appearance of hair, wrinkles, broken facial capillaries, and spider veins on legs, which, like most fall TV pilots, gradually fade from view over several months. The center also complements its beauty-enhancing treatments such as facial peels and fillers with skincare products that work to smooth and rejuvenate the skin.
Though the talented stylists at New Image Beauty Salon spend much of their time renovating outmoded coiffures and evicting unwelcome strands, they also focus their beauty-boosting expertise on refreshing complexions with a variety of skin treatments. The beauticians keep their scissors, flat irons, and waxing wands in tow six days a week, easily scheduling appointments for regular upkeep or emergency waxing sessions when bear costumes refuse to come off. New Image’s glycolic facials and peels launch faces toward epidermal excellence, and their threading services reshape bushy brows into slim eye accents.
The aesthetic experts at Pearl Beauty Salon offer services ranging from henna tattoos and nine types of facials to their signature process: threading. During threading sessions, technicians precisely shape brows by twisting a cotton thread over the face's surface and removing hair at the follicle level. The technique is commonly found in India, China, and hammocks, where it occurs accidentally during naps. Threading can be less painful than other hair-removal methods, is effective even on sensitive skin, and simultaneously exfoliates away dead skin cells.
At Celebrity Beauty Waxing, aesthetician Courtney Berry uses her unique—and strip-free—waxing technique to gently and swiftly remove hair from nearly ever part of the body. She transforms stubbly below-the-belt areas into silky smooth terrains with bikini, Brazilian, and buttocks waxing, and keep gams smooth with treatments for the lower or full legs. Further north, Courtney masterfully shapes brows into flattering arches or intimidating triangles, and eliminates peach fuzz from upper lips. Aside from waxing, the aesthetician combats breakouts and aging with three types of facials.
