Within the cream and burgundy oasis that is Euphoria Body Salon, a team of beautifiers with more than 50 years of combined experience get to work primping, pampering, and painting. Nail technicians administer mani-pedis decadent enough to warrant names like "whipped strawberry," handing each client a glass of bubbly before massaging hands and slicking them with polish. Dermaplane facials resurface tired fa?ades, and hairstylists cut and color the coifs of women, men, and children.
Professionals at Pure Aesthetics & Beauty Bar use natural ingredients to clean up both bodies and faces during scrubs, facials, and vajacials. Aestheticians also tend to the bikini area with a Parisian strip-less wax and tinting services in such hues as purple, pink, brown, and black.
Four of Fuze Salon's stylists have more than a decade of experience, and Artistic Director Chip Perry has spent more than two decades in the business. Perry spent time as a national performing artist for Redken and specialized in teaching corrective color at the Redken Exchange, so it’s no surprise the salon uses ammonia-free Redken Chromatics dye as its go-to. Like Fievel Mousekewitz, his journey to happiness began with petty theft. His online biography describes how he would commandeer his neighbors' dolls as a child and "spend hours trying to twist the two inches of fiber into different shapes.” Now, he styles brides and men's cuts with equal dexterity, and keeps his hands busy raising two dogs, contributing to the boards of two charitable organizations, and rallying the community around philanthropic drives and walks.
Often when an eyebrow threader removes unwanted brow hair, they hold one end of the cotton thread in their mouth. But at Wow Brows!, threaders actually tie the thread around their neck, a technique that has been deemed by threading regulators in North Carolina to be more sanitary. In addition to shaping brows without disturbing the topmost layer of skin, hair-removal experts banish fuzz from all over the face.
Idolize Brows & Beauty's threading experts shape and manage facial hair without chemicals or blades. Their gentle threading treatments precisely shape eyebrows or completely banish hair from the chin, sideburns, cheeks, or neck. Beyond their string-centered services, the aestheticians also offer eyelash extensions in three different lengths.
During an interview on WLNK's Matt & Ramona Show, Vanish-Ink owner Mick Biddy described one of the tattoos he was in the process of treating. "A young gentleman came in with a heart on his shoulder, with a banner across it and his ex-girlfriend's name. We're just taking the name off, so we can put his new girlfriend's name in." Ended relationships are just one reason people visit Biddy's practice. Many want to get rid of a tattoo because of poor craftsmanship, because they have outgrown their body art, or because a former favorite anchor refuses to apologize for something. Whatever the reason, Biddy helps them using a MedLite C6 laser that can move quickly across the skin. The beam breaks down the particles of ink, allowing them to be absorbed into the body and flushed away. The spa's lasers can also reduce hair growth with vacuum-assisted lasers that draw flesh into the beams for more effective treatment.
