While one staffer carefully draws on an intricate henna tattoo, another uses two twisted threads to cleanly remove unwanted facial hair. This is the Threading & Henna Salon, where the team specializes in Indian beauty services, including herbal facials. The licensed aestheticians are also experts in waxing and makeup applications, which they can tailor to a night out, a wedding, or an afternoon black-tie barbecue.
As a certified electrologist, Donna Crump has spent the last 15 years honing her skills by removing hair on men and women. Donna uses the FDA-approved hair removal treatment to whisk away unsightly hair permanently over the course of a few sessions. Each non-invasive treatment lasts between 15 minutes to an hour.
Those seeking slimming services need look no further than the studio's Lipo Light Pro, which targets localized areas of fat with the power of LED light. In addition to body contouring, the beauty experts at Gentle Touch CT zap unwanted follicles with carefully calibrated jolts of electrical current, causing them to close up shop and stop producing hair after a series of sessions. They treat common areas such as the upper lip, underarms, or tops of the feet and perform their services within the confines of a private, comfortable office. Gentle Touch CT also offers facial-rejuvenation treatments that are safe for all skin types.
GBS Brows has carved out a niche for its four locations by offering beautification treatments not often found at other salons. While they certainly present standard fare such as facials, massages, and waxing, what sets them apart are their two other treatments; threading and henna tattoos. Threading, an alternative to traditional waxing, uses intertwined pieces of thread to remove and shape facial hair with increased precision. Their India-trained henna tattoo artists can create beautiful, often floral-inspired designs that typically last about two to four weeks, like most grade school plays. Each location's décor showcases its own type of elegance, but they all feature bright colors and pleasant flourishes such as plants and paintings.
Located inside Sun-Rayz Tanning, Derick Steven Hair Studio offers haircuts for men, women, and kids. The savvy stylists also update tresses with partial or full highlights as well as perms. Special occasions get an extra dose of glamour after the stylists create special looks such as braided updos with buns or cascading curls.
Sparse eyebrows, thin lips, and lingering scars are no match for A Better Image's SofTap permanent makeup. Aestheticians use a microprobe to gently inject natural-looking pigments around the eyes, lips, areola, or anywhere else that needs more pigment, including those bearing the vestiges of burns or surgery. The tattooing process is entirely the choice of the client, who can choose how subtle or dramatic they wish their new look to be. A Better Image also offers permanent hair removal and eyebrow shaping services.
