Chandra Wilson frames eyes and enhances winks with NovaLash semipermanent extensions. Using medical-grade adhesive, she applies synthetic lashes to instantly amplify your appearance and the frequency of come-ons from companion-seeking butterflies. Semipermanent lashes can last for up to four weeks without a touchup; Chandra can also give eyes a different kind of confidence boost with cluster lashes that last two to three weeks. She works with hair, too, spreading beauty with cuts and color treatments.
Schonheits Salon & Spa’s talented cosmetologists transform men and women of humble countenances into glowing counts and countesses with a number of facial services. The one-hour European facial melds the time-honored techniques of Old-World aesthetics with modern-day technological upgrades. After an expert analysis of a client's skin’s traits—including its texture, tone, and number of USB ports—Schonheits' façade-furbishers will customize the gentle storm of lotions and exfoliants to the client's needs. As ramshackle skull-hulls get rejuvenated, stiff shoulders and necks melt beneath a stress-relieving rubdown, and arm endings undergo an extended massage followed by a few minutes inside a pair of hot mitts.

When life on the lam plunks you in the middle of an identity comedy worthy of Shakespeare or Voltaire, respond in kind with the proper face and head shaping that will keep your disguise intact. Tame unruly tresses with a trim (starting at $15), or make a pit stop to treat yourself to an express facial ($35) during a particularly tiring shift of delivering plutonium to local captains of industry. Exterminate uninvited body hairs with any of Bombay's regionally specific waxes (starting at $11). Waxing provides a longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax.
