Soft lighting and the sound of a burbling fountain welcome clients to the newly-remodeled Derma Clinic of Naples, where a licensed aesthetician and permanent-makeup specialist refreshes countenances by performing permanent-makeup applications, electrolysis, and skincare services. The technician, also a certified medical electrologist, leverages her training to permanently reduce hair by applying a small amount of electricity to the follicle. Additionally, she renders permanent-makeup services that add definition to lips, eyebrows, and eyeliner, or camouflage scars from accidents or aggressive cheek pinches. Her skincare service roster includes microdermabrasion, facials, and peels that work to reduce signs of aging, eradicate sun damage, and shrink pores.
Between the mint walls of Sandals Salon, a slate of experienced stylists freshen patrons’ appearances with hair and skin services, including trend-sensitive cuts, perms, and body waxing, with the help of Goldwell and AG products. The staff settles clients in by offering hot coffee or purified water during a quick consultation. Then, the multitasking team gets to work, coloring or styling hair while simultaneously beautifying nails. A kaleidoscope of OPI polishes keeps digits shining, and gel nails enhance fingertips with a thin, clear overlay that resists chipping, yellowing, and running away as the nail grows out.
With the motto “Be your own kind of beautiful,” the stylists at this L'anza focus salon help bring out clients’ natural allure. They pull from L'anza’s line of botanical-based products to cleanse and condition strands before accentuating features with a flattering cut or vibrant new hue. In addition to hair services, the staff reveals brighter complexions with facials and makeup applications.
Bella U's highly trained team of hair-straightening stylists employs 30 years of experience, high-end products, and technically savvy skills to tend to frizzy tresses of all types. Combat humidity and repel fuzz-seeking birds with the formaldehyde-free Keratin Brazilian straightening treatment. The intensive procedure revolutionizes unwanted ringlets, leaving hair smooth, shiny, and more easily hypnotized into style. Following a cleansing wash, the stylist will apply the formula to the hair, coating each strand with a protein-infusing layer of product. To seal in the cuticle-smoothing formula, the stylist then heat-treats hair with a hot iron application, ensuring shorter blow-dry time and wave-free weaves. With proper care, the semi-permanent benefits of the Brazilian blowout can last up to 6–8 weeks.
At James Michael Salon, owner and stylist Felicia deftly snips and styles strands into face-framing haircuts with high-end products such as Amir Argan Oil. One-hour appointments begin with a heart-to-heart to determine hair's dreams, followed by a shampoo to help restore shine, enhance softness, and strengthen hair so it won’t break or need help opening jars of pickles. Next, deftly wielded scissors whirl across tress terrains to corral them into the desired shapes. Felicia finishes up by blow-drying and styling hair into artful coiffures as clients look on, allowing them to re-create looks at home or on front hedges.
