By using centuries-old techniques, the aestheticians at Just Stringz are capable of designing trendy, dramatic looks for their clients. They rely on their extensive training in the ancient art of threading as they use cotton thread to swiftly uproot unwanted hairs and meticulously shape brows. Though the spa's henna tattoos and Swarovski body-art services also embrace time-honored strategies, the team doesn't ignore modern advances in cosmetic care. Facial treatments use Dermalogica skincare products to address skin concerns such as dehydrated patches or breakouts. Or these blemishes can be covered temporarily with an application of Glo Minerals Makeup, which also nourishes skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and pure Nobelium atoms.
Central Place Skin Care Salon combines a bevy of spa packages with a candlelit, Victorian atmosphere to craft rejuvenating and beautifying spa experiences. During the Relaxation Vacation package, a one-hour massage mollifies muscles by employing Swedish techniques and emotional blackmailing to coax bodily tension into quietly leaving. Then, a half-hour Reiki treatment utilizes ancient techniques of manual energy direction, designed to instill a full-body sense of wellbeing. Finally, a customized European facial pampers weary countenances with facial steaming and exfoliation, face and décolleté massage, and a nourishing mask to battle skin flaws while concealing secret identities.

After earning her esthetician's license in 2010, Kirsten Zhang was halfway to her dreams. From a young age, she had envisioned herself as the owner of her own salon, and in May of 2012, those visions became a reality the moment Hot Wax & Lashes opened its doors.

To enhance facial features even more, she also applies MAC makeup that can draw out eyes, highlight cheekbones, and coverup blemishes or neck bolts.
