Lead by medical director Gregory Laurence, Germantown Aesthetics’s team of trained specialists beautifies clients’ epidermal landscapes during noninvasive and surgical treatments. Germantown Aesthetics welcomes patients into a handsome, historic building raised in 1887 that now combines space-age lasers and medical equipment with the earth-toned décor and meticulous facial-hair grooming of the late 19th century. Within soothing treatment rooms, physician assistants and registered nurses work alongside Dr. Laurence to fill out wrinkles with Botox and Juvéderm, sculpt svelte waistlines with liposuction, and erase unwanted veins from the surface of legs with advanced laser treatments.
Joyce's Hair Salon has been making over clients since 1988. Master stylist Joyce E. Blount and her staff continue to transform hair into the perfect look with services such as cuts, hair extensions, highlights, and deep-conditioning treatments. They also cut children's hair.
Over the past decade, Hi Gorgeous, Inc. has expanded from a hair salon into a hair and skincare spa, named one of the best hair salons and best places to get waxed according to the Memphis Flyer’s Best of Memphis list in 2012. Its 8 styling stations set the stage for haircuts, color treatments, perms, and weaves that use Delancy, the spa's product line formulated by Larry Delancy. These products also fill the facial room, where aestheticians cleanse and exfoliate pores before treating skin to glycolic and lactic peels designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars caused by acne or falling asleep with a meat tenderizer in your pillow. Beyond cleansing skin, the team uses warm wax to smooth every inch of the body, from eyebrows to bikini lines.
With a portfolio chock full of everything from fun chunky highlights to subtle all-over color?plus stylish cuts for men or girls with coarse hair?it's clear that no hair request intimidates Laurel James. In fact, Ms. James is a traveling educator who visits other salons to teach their stylists about cutting hair and coloring it with the Schwarzkopf product line, which she uses in her own salon. There, she and fellow stylist Rachael Austein Brower add dimension with foil highlights and correct home dye jobs, as well as texturize hair with permanent waves and chop off split ends.
Best friends Kimberly Reneé and Paris Chanel started Blush Me Beautiful to share their knack for makeup with fellow Memphis ladies. Catering not just to brides but to anyone in need of a little pampering, Kimberly and Paris customize looks for each client. Services are available à la carte—clients can come in just for brow shaping, for instance—and in the form of full-face makeovers. To brush up on cosmetic skills of their own, some patrons even enroll in the duo's private makeup classes.
