At Eye Candy Hair Studio, stylists like to get to know their clients. By learning about their lifestyle, personality, and fashion sense, staffers can customize the cut that’s right for clients and their facial features. Stylists can use graduation techniques to lengthen the appearance of a short neck or add soft waves to enhance the appearance of an oval-shaped face. Working with all lengths and styles of hair, stylists also perform highlighting and color treatments that run the gamut from subtle to ultra bold. Color Sync methods give hair a glassy sheen, and accent foils add a touch of color while improving communication between the client and nearby extraterrestrials. Eye Candy’s list of services includes men’s and kids' cuts, as well as perms and waxing services.
When master stylist Christie Kramer decided to open a hair salon in 1998, her standards for the hair professionals she would to hire were high. Having trained in Europe and the US, she brought with her a wide perspective on hair care and selected her staff based on their specific talents. Today, the stylists at Christie & Co. are most known for their hair coloring skills, from multi-dimensional hues to rich reds and drastic color corrections. Clients can also opt for a full array of hair care services, including Japanese straightening, extensions, and Brazilian blowouts. On the spa side of things, an aesthetician creates soothing moments during facials, massages or nail care.
Window decals of traditional barbershop poles signal the entrance to Kisner’s Barber Salon, where licensed and certified hairstylists cut, color, and perm hair seven days a week. After sitting down for an initial consultation, men, women, and children can add new dimensions to their looks with a sleek cut and style. The salon’s services don’t stop at the scalp, however. Nourishing facials infuse skin with essential moisturizers and professional massages melt away stress with gentle strokes. Thankfully, none of that stress will come from being dissatisfied with one’s haircut; clients may return within two days for an alteration or a confidence-boosting compliment, both free of charge.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
From her 20s through her 40s, Dotty Holoubek struggled with cystic acne. Ultimately, Holoubek conquered it—not only on her own face but on others’ as well—after training at Chesapeake School of Esthetics. At her eponymous skincare clinic, she tends acne-prone complexions with Environ products, whose Vitamin A promotes collagen production. The products also combat two of Dotty’s other pet issues, rosacea and sun-damage. Another one of her specialties, microcurrent facial sculpting, beams eight different waveforms into epidermis, activating facial muscles to minimize wrinkles. Certified in oncology aesthetics, Dotty can also craft custom skincare treatments for people living with cancer.
