If Kimmy Nguyen's stylists are the metaphorical bricks that build up LK Hair Salon, then her experience—which spans two decades—is the mortar that holds them all together. Kimmy started out as a cosmetology student at Beau Monde – College of Hair Design, where she learned how to style hair, nurture epidermises, and tend to careworn nails. Now she and her team beautify façades by augmenting manes with cuts and color, buffing faces with microdermabrasion, and piercing ears with teeny-tiny swords.
While Michelle Kunkel studied at the Euphoria Institute of Beauty Arts & Sciences, she earned her certification in Babor skincare products and cultivated a passion for glowing skin and edgy, prismatic makeup. After graduation, she began her career as an aesthetician under the moniker Mama Riot Make-up, and today she artfully performs services inside Yost Salons Exclusive. Michelle's facials and waxing treatments make skin slippery smooth, and her ultrasonic and photofacial treatments subdue blemishes including cellulite and stretch marks. When she isn't accentuating faces with brow and lash tinting and makeup applications at the salon, she travels to her clients for weddings and spa parties. She'll even give makeup lessons upon request, should clients want to master techniques for achieving sultry and smoky eyes, perfectly pouty lips, or cheeks adorned with flawless sudoku puzzles.
As a girl, Stevee Danielle would watch professional makeup artists transform her actress mother and her show-business cohorts into glamorous stars. That sparked her interest in the craft, and at the age of 20, she opened her own beauty salon, Stevee Danielle Hair and Makeup. She quickly built out a team of skilled, trained stylists and makeup artists to augment her own talents and form a well-coiffed laser-tag team.
Though Stevee and her crew tackle a slew of services—such as hair cutting and coloring and manicures—in her salon, they specialize in bridal hair and makeup done on location and beautify 8–20 bridal parties per week. Stevee has even appeared on The Morning Blend to discuss her successful traveling wedding services and the latest bridal trend of weaving sparklers into hair.
Like a team of beauty-buffing superheroes, the roving professionals of Isis Artistry transform faces with state-licensed cosmetology skills. In business nearly 15 years, its aestheticians have beautified celebrities and performed services for television networks, magazines, and several of Vegas's high-end hotels. These services include makeup application, readying mugs for such occasions as weddings (Isis specializes in destination weddings), photo shoots, and trade shows. Facials and hair-removal service round out the offerings, keeping faces looking youthful and smooth.
A rotating collection of local artists’ work festoons the walls of Boulevard Salon & Gallery. The canvases’ dazzling colors bounce off the sleek wooden floor as stylists flex their own artistic skills on clients’ manes. They bolster strands with highlights, all-over color, or a dark-to-light ombre effect. They also insert glow sticks and feather extensions into strands for unexpected pops of color, and expertly twist hair into chic updos for special occasions.
Careful hands at Axiom Wellness and Medical Spa pamper tender skin surfaces with a variety of beauty treatments. Targeted facial waxes rid lips, chins, brows, or third eyes of unwanted follicles, as a specialty hard wax solidifies around hairs before stripping them away. An optional anesthetic keeps Brazilian waxees comfortable. Single-strand synthetic eyelash extensions, applied one by one with an adhesive, bond onto individual eyelashes in a variety of thicknesses and colors, while lightweight mink eyelashes provide a dark sheen to solo strands after a careful application, which can last up to two hours. Both eyelash extensions can last for up to two months, which is exactly how long it takes to wink in slow motion.
