Southern Exposure Waxing and Skincare’s trained aestheticians work seven days a week to keep skin moisturized and free of blemishes. Their waxing and airbrush-tanning services result in smooth complexions that exude their own natural glow, whereas makeup applications can add a seductive tint to eyes and lips. Just as they survey cheeks to determine the perfect shade of makeup, the aestheticians thoroughly analyze skin before selecting the products to use in their custom facials. These facials can address many issues that arise from aging, including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and a buildup of several decades’ worth of Halloween masks.

The duo behind Odara Salon and Spa – one hairstylist, Amanda, and one aesthetician, ReQuesia – began their partnership as an on-location beauty team. They worked on-location services for local weddings and Quinceanera celebrations to keep revelers looking their best. After the demand for their services grew, they eventually decided to set down roots, and acquired a space to practice their face-flattering trades.
Their cooperative efforts continue to bear fruit, as one focuses on trimming, coloring, and styling hair, and the other on make-up application and smoothing skin. The stylist uses Paul Mitchell-recommended Awapuhi Luxury hair care products for all her services, while the aesthetician swears by the DermaQuest Skincare line. As an added bonus, they throw in scalp massages and shampoo with haircuts and upper body massages with spa services.
