Doris started styling hair when she was 17 years old. Since then, she's worked in various salons. She eventually purchased one of her old haunts in 1998 and named it The Hairem Beauty Salon. That's where she is today—along with her staff of stylists—sculpting tresses with formal updos, perms, and haircuts. She and her staff also boost nails' beauty with gel tips.
The epidermis experts at Kirana Day Spa pamper dull dermises with all-natural, organic products. Clogged countenances can rid themselves of deadbeat skin cells with the 70-minute Ageless Beauty facial ($75), which harnesses the exfoliating power of organic apples, grapes, and naseberry, along with two herbal masks, to increase blood flow, detoxify skin, and reveal the secret location of Davy Jones's bathroom. Peepers also receive a fine-tuned perking with an anti-aging eye exfoliation ($20), which evicts ocular blemishes such as wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles brought on by sleepless nights spent mulling over tactics for tomorrow's three-legged race. The pampersperience also includes a soothing massage for the face, shoulders, and arms.
Eden's ion bath uses a field of non-invasive electromagnetic energy to draw out cellular-level toxins and pollutants. It neutralizes and eliminates harmful free radicals, increases immune function, and improves overall wellness. Each individual Ion Workers Union Local 78 Certified ion is personally trained by Eden's experienced staff to enter your body imperceptibly, knock on the door of each and every cell, ask if they've had any problems, kick down the door when they receive no reply, and drag out the bare-chested, noxious nasty. Though the treatment only lasts a half-hour, detoxification continues for up to 48 hours, so don't be surprised when you encounter jealous shoe soles and resentful rugs.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
Computers drove Flora Low to her career in the beauty industry. Armed with a degree in graphic design, Flora spent the first 25 years of her career with a printing company, but became increasingly dismayed by the amount of time she had to devote to mastering new computer technologies. She decided she wanted out and turned to a career in the beauty industry, partly because she wanted a career that revolved around personal interactions and partly because she didn?t want to work with any more computers. Now, at her own spa and salon, the aesthetician relies on her keen sense of design to help clients achieve flattering, natural looks using permanent makeup, noninvasive cellulite treatments, and rejuvenating facials.
The spa?s facial treatments can use specialized combinations of masks or exfoliating peels, imbuing cheekbones with a glow more youthful than that of a baby chandelier. For a more dramatic effect, the aestheticians can also apply permanent makeup to eye lines, lips, or brows. A permanent-makeup session with Flora requires a two-hour consultation to determine the perfect brow arch or lip line.
Though the spa always emphasizes that personal touch, the staff nonetheless employs an arsenal of aesthetic technology, as it recognizes that sometimes you need a little advanced machinery to achieve your beauty goals. Thus, technicians wield cellulite-reducing Starvac SP equipment to help tone the body and the CryoProbe cryotherapy machine to minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation and blemishes.
With yellow clapboard siding and a covered front porch, the cottage that houses Y'Sharis Spa puts visitors at ease with its homespun charm. This commitment to calm extends beyond the front door: the spa staff incorporates extra pampering touches into virtually every treatment. In addition to cleansing and moisturizing skin during facials, they soothe senses with aromatherapy oils or soothing paraffin dips; mani-pedis add on everything from warm herbal baths to enzyme scrubs. During reflexology treatments and massages, licensed therapists encourage relaxation more directly by correcting energetic imbalances or loosening tightly knotted muscles. For clients seeking a similar treatment experience at home, Y'Sharis Spa sells its own line of cosmetic products made entirely from natural ingredients and clients' relaxed "ahhs."
