Inside Moda Salon, chairs spin toward full-length mirrors as roses, reeds, and bamboo rise from gleaming pots. Here, seasoned stylists make locks as lush and elegant as the foliage that trims the space. Instead of infusing manes with garden fertilizer, they cultivate strength and shine with top-shelf products by Redken, Aquage, and Mastey Paris. Built from masterful snips and a keen understanding of the client’s personal style, haircuts frame facial features with contemporary flair. Organic color treatments lavish tresses in vibrant reds, blonds, and chocolates, and keratin smoothing therapy leaves them straight and silky, like a highway lined with neckties. In addition to pampering manes, friendly staffers beautify nails with acrylic, gel, and Shellac manicures.
Skinthetics Laser & Skin Care Center’s professionally trained staff has extensive laser and skin treatment experience, which puts patients at ease during complimentary consultations. At these pre-procedure pow-wows, clients learn all about the procedures in question—whether they want to extend and recolor their eyebrows, shed unwanted weight with noninvasive treatments, or rejuvenate their epidermis with a facial or skin peel. Staffers can also bronze skin during 15-minute sunless-tanning sessions and abolish unwanted hair with laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis. Before leaving the center, guests can stock up on beautification products in the retail area to stay pretty at home to please their judgmental pet goldfish.
The beauty squad at Bloomfield Esthetics glams up guests with facials, permanent makeup, hair removal, and mani-pedis. They'll tailor each European deep-cleansing facial to your individual skin type and wipe the pores clean with all-natural products. Alternatively, the aromatherapy facials use essential oils and an acupressure massage to soothe sensitive skin. The spa specialist, Joanne, has more than 28 years of experience in applying permanent eyeliner and lip color. The applications will stay put 24 hours a day, even as you sleep, shower, or jog through a car wash. The team can also whisk away unwanted hair using traditional waxing techniques and electrolysis.
Formerly Pure Radiance Laser & Esthetics in West Bloomfield, the newly dubbed Beauty Haven – Laser, Esethetics, & Wellness— now located in down town Plymouth— tends to clients with expert aesthetic services. The specialists employ advanced technology at their serene and relaxing space, smoothing complexions with exfoliating DiamondTome microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and removing hair with a Candela GentleLase Plus laser. But the spa places equal emphasis on timeless pampering, and thoughtful touches such as aromatherapy and softly humming hand towels accent facial treatments and girls’ nights out.
As a licensed electrologist and certified laser professional, Maria Gorton knows how to remove unwanted hair from bodies. As owner of Body Beautiful, she pools her knowledge with that of a team of beauty professionals who fight aging, rejuvenate skin, and create longer, fuller lashes without resorting to yarn. They use products from SkinMedica and Obagi when reducing wrinkles, sun damage, and dullness with special peels and allow products to penetrate deeply with DermaSweep treatments.
Maria Gorton also uses her knowledge and more than 15 years experience with lasers by helping others gain as much skill. She hosts two-day training events that are supervised by medical director Belal Abdallah, M.D.
Alongside a highly trained staff, board-certified dermatologist Audrey J. Bruell channels more than 20 years' worth of skincare expertise into ousting unsightly spider veins with Cool Touch laser treatments. Clients can snipe at troublesome squiggles anywhere on their bodies during the 30-minute procedure, which causes minimal discomfort. As a relatively painless alternative to sclerotherapy, the session requires no downtime and results in minimal bruising for all skin types. Multiple appointments may be necessary depending on each patient and the number of Road Closed signs erected for joyriding blood cells.
