Fig Leaf Salon's Alane Giannone combines technical prowess with style savvy to craft hairdos that embellish every face that saunters through the door. Their versatility allows them to carry out complete makeovers or simple trims, and their coloring services?which include full color and highlights?enrich haircuts and add more visual layers than a collage artist who doesn't know when to quit. Fig Leaf also staffs a nail technician whose artful eye and sanitized tools result in smooth skin and clean, brightly polished nails.
At Aesthetic Beauty, licensed aesthetician Anna Bruno has turned her ingrained passion for skincare into a business. She performs a full slate of beauty services that range from facials and chemical peels to Brazilian waxes. Her services impart skin with a slew of benefits, such as balanced oil and moisture content.
The beauty mavens at L'Marie smooth and tighten skin using hydrating body wraps administered to targeted areas or full bodies. In sessions lasting 30 minutes, a seaweed-and-peppermint wrap encapsulates upper arms, hips and thighs, torsos or uninspired frozen burritos in need of sprucing up. Alternatively, aestheticians can apply a whole-body coat for all-over hydration and cell detox. Masterful hands bind selected anatomy in the skin-nourishing solution before covering figures in a warm blanket to seal in the effects and ward off lonely bouquet-wielding mummies. Afterwards, staff members unwrap new birthday suits to reveal taut, freshly moisturized epidermises exhibiting a healthy, dewy glow.
Nevada School of Massage Therapy graduate Cathy Abbott earned a national certification in massage therapy, a distinction that requires her to keep her skills sharp with continuing-education courses. Among the modalities she's mastered are gentle Swedish massages, which stimulate circulation; deep-tissue massages, which address chronic pain; and hot-stone massages, which locate trendy gems lodged beneath the skin. Abbott also specializes in prenatal massage, during which she uses special pillows and positioning techniques to assuage the physical stress of maternity.
