The multitalented artist can combine her skills to doll up brides and their attendants before the ceremony.

Though the spa specializes in bridal hair and makeup services, men shouldn't feel left out, as the slate of male-centric treatments includes beard grooming, gray-hair blending, and even a special men's facial.

For coloring services, Rusk hair products pack marine minerals to simultaneously change hair hues and give strands a healthy shine.
