Whether looking to improve their skin's condition or enhance it, The Glamour Co. has clients covered.

For more permanent beauty, Abshear lines the eyes, lips, or brows with permanent-makeup pigment.

The beauty gurus at Spa DG Couture enhance their clients' natural beauty by augmenting features with technologically enhanced treatments such as permanent makeup or by making skin, hair, and nails radiate health with traditional spa and salon services inside a shop with racks laden with boutique apparel.

Stylists use hair and eyelash extensions to thicken natural manes and lashes, and aestheticians can accent clients' shining hair with facials to make visages glow and treatments to whiten teeth. After leaving the spa's treatment rooms, guests can peruse the selection of Juicy Couture, Chanel, and Xoxo clothes and accessories that add high-end flair to complement hair newly swept into a bouffant updo shaped like Louis XVI.
