For more than a quarter of a century, the family behind Mimo Beauty Wear has helped men and women to achieve their beauty goals with a blend of technology and industry experience. Owner and artist Janet and stylist and IPL specialist Jeannie tend to the skin of their clients with Valmont skincare products, which help to fight wrinkles, dehydration, and the supervillain hidden in your nose. Although the team specializes in skincare and treating acne and unwelcome pigmentation, their roster of services extends beyond the face to include hair, waxing, eyelash extensions, and permanent makeup.
After sidelining her career as a painter more than 20 years ago, Lisa Nose decided to apply her creative energy and deft hands to the art of cutting and coiffing tresses, a successful venture that lead to starting her own salon, Touch Of Beauty. Her inner artist’s passion of blending colors and instinct for creating complementary lines shines through hair-coloring treatments, and helping clients find the perfect style for their face shape or time-travel destination. Lisa relies on Paul Mitchell and Joico products for hair care, and utilizes Valmont products for facials. Her brush continues to grace canvases when not at the salon, a helpful tool that allows Lisa to turn eyelids and lips into her canvas as she applies permanent cosmetics, freeing clients from a life of refusing to smile in case lipstick or the forearm of unassuming strange has gotten stuck on their teeth.
At Face It Permanent Make Up Center, a team of skilled micropigmentation specialists, each certified by the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, enhances faces with permanent makeup. Led by owner Edine Swain, who finds personal fulfillment in working with clients dealing with birth defects and scars from accidents or surgeries, the professionals take the time to talk with each client and understand his or her vision for elegant eyeliner or lips the color of a newborn fire engine.
While darkening brows or adding a starlet beauty mark, the artistic technicians employ micropigment colors—which, unlike traditional tattoo ink, don’t acquire a bluish tint over time. They calibrate the pigment with the utmost care, blending hues to match a client’s skin and hair or applying multiple shades of color to brows for a natural look. The professionals also specialize in correcting work performed at salons and in scar re-pigmentation, shading in the pale tissue left by surgical procedures or jobs as the Three Stooges’ carpentry teacher.
