Carletha and Keenia are the duo of stylists behind the curtain at Changez Hair Salon. Drawing from their experience and varying areas of expertise, they create a diverse menu of services ranging from coloring and weaves to relaxers and children's cuts. They update looks with both classic and modern cuts and provide gals with glamorous updos for weddings and special events such as family reunions. Like children very serious about their finger paintings, the stylists show off their favorite work in individual portfolios.
The licensed medical professionals and technicians at Venus Tan and Spa iron out wrinkles and unearth fresher, younger skin with sophisticated facial treatments. Nurse-administered Botox injections flatten out facial furrows by freezing muscles and tightening up the hard-to-reach screws behind the ears. Smoothed-out results appear within three to seven days after the 10- to 15-minute procedure and can last up to four months. Beauty mavens can follow up the treatment with a half-hour diamond microdermabrasion to draw back the face’s dull curtains of dead skin, or tighten up sagging spots and recharge cheek-stored smile batteries with the gentle FDA-approved electric pulses of a 45-minute microcurrent facial.
At Benita Lash Studio, Novalash-trained technicians use medical-grade products to affix synthetic lashes to their clients' eyes. These lashes are waterproof, sweat-proof, require minimal maintenance, and don’t need to be removed before bed or pie-eating contests. In addition to lash extensions, the studio also offers facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, along with spray tanning and waxing for full-body beautification.
As the owner of Blush Beauty Studio, Paige Vincent personally selects all of the products she and her staff use to beautify their clients. To keep pores free of synthetic chemicals, she relies on 100% Pure skincare and makeup products. These concoctions—which are derived from fruit pigments and never tested on animals—are composed of organic ingredients and antioxidants that fend off damaging free radicals on the run from algebra homework. She banishes the signs of aging with chemical peels and collagen-boosting LED skin treatments, which also work to slay acne-causing bacteria.
Tending to full bodies, she extracts bristles with waxing and sugaring. She pumps up peepers with waterproof eyelash extensions that last up to four weeks, and grants clients with custom bronze glows free of streaks or orange hues thanks to her organic airbrush tans.
At Cuts and Colors by Claudia, stylists speak both english and spanish as they manipulate hair to suit each client's personal style. Their services run the gamut from haircuts for women, men, and children to keratin treatments that keep strands smooth and silky. Opt for lowlights and highlights to add dimension to your natural hair color, or choose all-over color to change your look and alienate your driver's license picture.
The salon also removes unwanted hair with chin, eyebrow, and upper lip waxing. In addition, gents can pair beard trims with old-fashioned hot-towel treatments to help moisturize skin.
At Lavish Lash Lounge, Michelle Woodall-Boykin and her crew of eyelash artists enhance upper lids with semi-permanent extensions. The lashes they use are fine specimens, possessing a flirty curl, a tapered tip, and, technically, as much wish-granting power as natural lashes. The lounge?s expert care instructions help clients maintain the glamorous look for as long as possible. When the additions begin to fall off, the team offers refills that take less time to apply and cost less than the original set.
