When thinning out her eyebrows as a young woman, Saima Bukhari discovered something surprising: she was pretty good at this whole beauty thing. Soon, she was helping her friends improve their looks, a passion that would lead her to stints as a Lancôme makeup artist and student at Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy. She opened Glow Medical Spa and Salon with her husband, using her University of Cincinnati education to help share her talents with the public. Together with her staff, she manages wily heads with custom haircuts and styling, including coloring and full and partial highlights for men and women. When not busy culling body hair with waxing and laser hair removal, staffers expand their relaxation services to the whole body during mani-pedis, facials, and five different massage modalities. They also administer dermal fillers and injections to reverse the signs of aging, and tighten skin with the FDA-approved SmartLipo system.
