In addition to the smiling staff of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists, Bee Beautiful’s friendly and relaxed vibe surfaces in its opulent tapestries, plush couches, and floral grace notes. Within this tranquil space, staffers treat their clients like queens, drawing from a lengthy menu that includes a plethora of hairstyling services, nailcare options, massage therapies, and skin and body treatments. Once they’re finished in the salon or spa chair, customers can buzz over to the retail shelves where they can peruse a wealth of eco-friendly haircare, nailcare, and skincare products from the likes of OPI, Onesta, and the Naked Bee.
A few years ago, Aria, the experienced esthetician behind Divinely Beautiful Skincare and Meditation, began complimenting her understanding of the external body with an exploration of the inner-self. Since beginning the practice of mindful meditation, she found the technique helps to increase self-awareness, diminish stress, and strengthen the mind-body connection. Rather than keeping this newfound wisdom to herself, she decided to share it with others, adding meditation to her lineup of services in in 2012.
Today, she continues to help instill confidence from the inside out with skincare services, including facials and waxing sessions, and contemplative meditation practices. She offers drop-in meditation classes and one-on-one sessions, both designed to clear minds, boost energy levels, strengthen focus, and foster a whole new appreciation for Enya.
Apsara Day Spa & Threading's licensed aestheticians liberate bodies from unflattering fuzz with both waxing and threading treatments at their Cockeysville and Catonsville locations. Clients revamp expressive visages for upcoming mime calisthenics drills with facial waxing, or oust facial fibers with Indian techniques of deft string handling and threading. Brazilian waxes leave skin smooth from the navel down, and egyptian waxes evict strands from betwixt hips with an all-natural, sugar-based formula, which clings to individual hairs without irritating the skin.
In addition, multitalented staff members further beautification with spa services such as massages, hairstyling, and facials. One-on-one yoga sessions boost circulation and flexibility as well as building self-esteem by allowing clients to boast about being the top student.
The skilled aestheticians at Salon Grace will technicolor any tarnished tresses with a color or highlight treatment. For those that appreciate the uniform color of paint and vanilla Oreos, a single process ($70) will transform skull silk into one soft, shiny halo of hotness. A subtle face-framing hue ($45) will draw attention to meritable mugs, rather than egotistical scapulas, and the full-highlight process ($130) covers the head with foil to cut off the electromagnetic signals that aliens use to control the mind. A full highlight imbues the noodle nest with comprehensive color accented by shimmery peaks of vibrancy that reflect back the sun's lustful stares.
