The Classic Face owner Kathryn Belasco, a registered nurse who wields a license to apply permanent makeup with micropigmentation techniques, headlines a roster of beauty boosters that have a knack for making over clients from the neck up. While applying permanent makeup, Belasco and her techs use their tools to enhance the natural shape of clients? eyebrows, eyelids, and lips according to the unique features of each customer, rather than festooning faces with makeup styles that will eventually fall out of fashion or aggravate territorial mimes. During their dermal-rolling treatments, they use small handheld rollers with tiny needles to help tighten loose skin, stimulate collagen production, and reduce scars and stretch marks. Once faces have been thoroughly prettified, the salon?s hairstylists can sculpt strands into flattering, face-framing coiffures.
