Behind Alandre Salon & Day Spa's curved, marbled reception desk, internationally trained beauticians lavish guests with cosmetic, med-spa, and salon treatments. Almond-colored walls surround private treatment rooms, and thickly padded chairs cosset patrons as they receive pedicures. Within the Alandre fold is platform artist and salon partner Rajaei Haddad. Having been the ambassador and educator for L'Oreal Paris and Shwartscoff Germany for over a decade, and the owner of a prestigious Middle East salon, he performs artistry of formal styling, precision cutting, coloring and more. Haddad specializes in updos and makeup, especially for bridal arrangements.
Lisa Rowe Glickoff's more than 20-year career is just as diverse as the pictures of fantasy, special effects, and beauty makeup in her portfolio. When she is not busy prepping faces for fashion, film, and high-profile events? such as dolling up celebs for the 2006 Academy Awards? the makeup-industry veteran spends time on the product side of the industry. In addition to serving as a beauty rep for brands such as Paula Dorf Cosmetics, she also has created Astute, her own line of makeup. But even with all of these accomplishments, the one that?s closest to her heart remains the founding of Astute Artistry, her makeup-training boutique and beauty studio. From within the 8,000 square foot space?decorated with modern Paris-themed decor?she teaches aspiring make-up artists how to create Hollywood-approved special effects and beauty makeup during hands-on classes that range from beginner level to advanced professional.
When not teaching others the tricks of the beauty trade, Lisa puts her aesthetician license and chic boutique to use by shaping brows with threading, enhancing eyes with lash extensions, and rejuvenating mature, teen, and dehydrated skin during facials. Lisa and her team also provide traditional makeup applications for brides and those attending special events.
Lisa is also committed to helping those in need, which is why she founded Astute Artistry II, a nonprofit makeup studio catering to women affected by skin and hair conditions, which was featured in Hour Detroit magazine.
Seasoned aestheticians and makeup and nail technicians can be found throughout the tranquil halls of L'Aryola Salon and European Spa. The building's simple earth tones and abstract artwork melt into the background as clients slip into a state of calm brought on by customized facials, some including serums with natural vitamins and plants. Body wraps soothe exteriors in rooms that are illuminated by candlelight and full of intriguing aromas, much like an apothecary who has been set on fire, and permanent-makeup sessions add pigments that can augment natural features for years to come. Manicures and pedicures pamper hands and feet with careful grooming of the nails and cuticles, plus amenities like the paraffin hand treatment or the foot bath with seaweed extracts and mineral salts.
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.
