Skilled aesthetician Tiffany Henderson has dedicated years to cultivating her technique, studying to earn her license before continuing on to work at top spas and beauty studios as a brow expert, waxing professional, and Aveda skincare specialist. She brings her years of training and experience to Couture Lashes & Spa, where she performs a variety of skincare services—including skin-smoothing waxes and replenishing facials. Though a maven of myriad beautifying treatments, Tiffany specializes in lash extensions, during which she expertly adheres faux-mink extensions one by one to a client's natural lashes to create longer, fuller-looking lashes.
Mahendra Patel opened New York Thread to bring the ancient practice of threading to the modern masses. The technicians twist pieces of cotton thread in such a way to quickly, efficiently remove unwanted hair from eyebrows, upper lips, chins, and horns. The staff also flex their artistic skills with temporary henna tattoos in a variety of swirls, flowers, and lattice designs.
Ladyburg is the inspiration of owner, master aesthetician, and aesthetic instructor Crystal Wellman. Within the cozy day-spa atmosphere, the crew at Ladyburg targets unsightly hair, age-indicators, and blemishes with clinical, results-oriented treatments performed with Image Skincare products and Radiancy Light & Heat Energy (LHE) technology. They help clients determine the most effective products for their skin by pairing initial consultations with a skin analysis, a tool that is useful in formulating custom treatments, such as clinical-grade facials, IPL treatments, chemical peels, and 3-D face paintings.
Ladyburg takes pride in keeping their services up-to-date with the latest in skincare technologies by continuously attending advanced-education seminars throughout the country. DermaSound, the spa's signature treatment, exfoliates up to 50% of clients' dead skin while boosting collagen and elastin production with ultrasonic and microcurrent energy. During advanced laser hair-reduction sessions, intense pulses of light and heat gently wash over unwanted bristles, breaking down follicles and leaving skin smoother than a seal-crooning Barry White. Traditional spa treatments, including waxing and mineral-makeup application, also make the list.
Nikia Haynes began her beauty career as a makeup artist, and over the years, she started to realize that many of her clients were using makeup to mask skin blemishes. So she decided to learn how to combat the causes, instead of simply covering up the symptoms.
At X-treme Beauty and Beyond, she clears skin with chemical peels, ultrasonic facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and back facials. In order to really diagnose a problem, Nikia relies on an analysis with a skin scope. This allows her to get an in-depth look at the different layers of skin and see things that might be invisible to the naked eye, such as sun damage or lip imprints left over from overly aggressive cheek kisses.
