With two decades of experience and multiple certifications under her belt, clinical aesthetician and permanent makeup artist Sallie Beauman helps patrons look and feel their best. Sallie demonstrates her skill with services that augment facial features, clarify skin, and help assuage the aesthetic effects of scarring, vitiligo, and alopecia. She also imparts her talents to others via an apprenticeship program in which novice ink wielders learn to manipulate the same feature-fortifying hues that Sallie so painstakingly applies to her own clients on the job and to popsicle sticks when bored.
The Clinical Skin Care Center Med Spa currently operates under the medical direction of Dr. David Azouz, a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience performing cosmetic surgery on the face and body. He and their staff perform cosmetic laser procedures that use radio frequency, light energy, and other technologies to target signs of aging on the face or body, as well as acne, acne scarring, and cellulite. The microdermabrasion treatments gently remove the topmost layer of skin to reveal softer skin, while also softening lines and fight acne.
In Turkish, the name of Lynn Garavaglia's studio, dolunay––pronounced doe-loon-eye––means "full moon." But while the moon's full beauty may wax or wane throughout the month, Lynn's permanent-makeup services ensure her clients remain at their most radiant at all times. Working out of Audra Ballard Salon, Lynn uses a tattoo-like technique to enhance eyes, lips, and brows with feature-flattering pigments that won't wash off or smudge. She can also apply the technique to correct pigment abnormalities, cover traditional tattoos, or camouflage scars caused by a cut or magical-wand fight, as well as to create new areolae for those who have undergone reconstructive surgery.
Elizabeth Cockram, the owner and resident cosmetics artist at Cinderellie, trained at the Texas Institute of Permanent Cosmetics, and she frequently returns to the institute for additional training. Ms. Cockram can apply permanent cosmetics, treat wrinkles, and remove tattoos using the natural Tattoo Vanish method.
Beauty experts polish their clients' fingers and toes before touching up their faces with vibrant makeup. Stylists clip, buzz, and sculpt the gentlemanly coifs of guests seated in their styling chairs. With their dashing new looks, these customers would stop traffic—if they were old enough to drive. At Sweet & Sassy, a salon and spa exclusively for children, glamour comes in all sizes. Mini manicures, pedicures, hairstyles, and makeup services give girls their first taste of the pampered life, and boys' haircuts give lads roughhouse-ready looks in styling chairs their own size. Even infants get in on the grooming with the Baby's First Cut package, which includes a hair locket, certificate, and photo keepsake to commemorate the first time their parents saw their ears. The salon also goes beyond simple image enhancements with themed parties, in which hot-pink limos scoop up young partygoers and bring them to the salon to don gowns and tiaras, strut down the runway, or rehearse for a live pop-music performance.
