If skill is measured in hours spent practicing a craft, Teddi Jean could be called a master. She graduated from a 1,200-hour aesthetics program at the NW Institute of Esthetics and channeled her skills and experience into Teddi Jean's Skin Care. To foster beauty on the surface, she applies traditional, long-lasting water-resistant airbrush makeup, as well as eyelash extensions with Minkys faux lashes. She also helps skin obtain a more radiant glow with custom facials and body treatments, such as seaweed and chocolate wraps, which revitalize skin and reduce signs of aging without outfitting customers with sailor outfits and oversize lollipops.
The personable tress snippers and arrangers at Hello Gorgeous Beauty Parlor pamper hair owners and their coifs with personalized beautifying services. A women's haircut trims lady locks ($25), and masculine manes can procure a scissor meet and greet with a men's haircut ($20). Saturate head grass with a thorough hue with all-over color ($45+), or select your favorite strands for highlights ($75+) that conjure up the sun's feelings of inadequacy. Un-undulating head threads can mimic Elvis's lip and curl with a perm ($65+), and those whose hair has too much spring in its step can unwind by applying the Groupon value toward the cost of a Brazilian blowout ($300). Extensions are also available for coiffures that want to best their siblings' growth on the hair height chart.
In the quiet, relaxing atmosphere of Haven Salon & Spa, skilled aestheticians pamper and beautify hands, feet, and heads with masterful hairstyling, revitalizing nail treatments, and rejuvenating facials.

Meanwhile, the salon’s nail techs administer manicures using no-chip polish, and stylists keep hair trim and on trend.
Amid the whirl of scissors, blow-dryers, and curling irons inside Third Avenue Hair Studio, Vicki sets up a skin-pampering sanctuary. She slathers seaweed, chamomile, and marine-algae mineral wraps across bodies, which aim to slough off dead skin cells and unearth a glow usually seen in freshly waxed cars filled to the brim with fireflies. Her facials help evict acne and soften fine lines using clay masks and deep cleansers.
