As the founder of BB MakeUp, Brooke Fleetwood's reach is huge: she travels all over the country (and sometimes outside of it) to pamper and prep her clients. But once she's with them, her focus narrows. Each appointment is meticulously personalized, from color selection to application. During makeup lessons, Brooke also her client's makeup collection to ensure they own the right colors for their complexions, aren't using expired cosmetics, and know the proper techniques for whittling a brow pencil in the wilderness.
Stocked with BB's own brand of products, Brooke's Makeup Cosmetic Bars provide touch-ups and special-event services of all stripes. Brides-to-be undergo airbrushing, models primp before editorial photoshoots, and friends get glamorous makeovers for nights on the town. Some stores also have a spa where guests can clarify their skin with a facial or clear away unwanted hair with a wax.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Jenkins channels his appearance-enhancing expertise into noninvasive treatments and aesthetic services. Under his guidance, a team of specialists aim advanced laser systems at unwanted hairs, rough complexions, and patches of cellulite, or they spread on a coat of skincare products by Vitality Institute, gloProfessional, Theraderm, and Lélexo to treat blemishes. Dr. Jenkins and his team also boost countenances with minimally invasive injections of Botox and Dysport, each designed to temporarily relax the facial muscles responsible for making frown lines and freezing eyebrows into constantly suspicious arches.
The talented aestheticians and hair-shorteners at a'la Mode salonspa, a full-service salon and spa, exhibit expertise in stylish haircuts, glossy mani-pedis, relaxing massages, and a variety of beautifying aesthetic services. Stylists trim bangs ($10–12) and dish out haircuts for adults ($19–62) and children 11 and younger ($15–35). Finger-painters apply white polish to the tips of nails during French manicures ($36). Remove unnecessary hairs with a bikini wax, or indulge in a pregnancy massage ($46 for 30 minutes), which enhances sleep for expectant mothers and calms the kicks of active babies. The application of a one-hour back facial ($61) rejuvenates back skin and decreases stress caused by moving stand-up pianos. Hair cuts in New Richmond start at $19, while hair cuts in Hudson start at $23.
Aesthetic Therapies delivers just that: treatments designed to improve your appearance. These treatments are performed by licensed aestheticians and supervised by medical director Dr. Scott Jenkins. Aesthetic Therapies also employs technicians licensed for teaching, laser procedures, and more. It's not surprising, then, that many of the center's services have something of a medical bent, ranging from Botox injections and electrolysis to lip augmentation and permanent makeup. However, therapeutic treatments are about more than just results; the relaxing facial includes not only exfoliation and a mask to battle blemishes but also a massage or acupressure.
