It?s easy to see why some clients refer to The Eyelash Place, Inc. as ?The Miracle on 39th Street.? The all-around beauty emporium has been enhancing eyes, shaping brows, and softening skin for more than 30 years?and those services make up only a portion of the salon?s lengthy menu.
As one might expect, eyelash extensions take center stage on this menu. Using semipermanent glue or a surgical-grade bonding agent, technicians apply these extensions individually to create longer, fuller lashes capable of putting out a fire or seducing a high-security eye scanner. Lashes aren?t much without a smooth complexion to match, and aestheticians do their part to rejuvenate skin with SKINWYNC products and microcurrents that work to stimulate collagen production. When they turn their attention to the body, it?s to eradicate fatty deposits with Wellbox anticellulite treatments.
In every private tanning room at Sun Spot, a shelf and hangers ensconce clothes and satchels. Shoes flop to the floor next to comfortable seating, slipping from the feet of patrons adjusting the volume on personal AM/FM stereos-CD players before the UV bed coaxes out melanin. The UV beds range across six levels of tanning power and sport adjustable body fans so guests can stay cool or find an excuse to redesign the north wing of a house of cards. A parade of clients wanders from VersaSpa booths, which darken skin with a bronzing elixir infused with custom color and moisturizer designed to hide the effects of aging. Slipping out past swaying bamboo plants, visitors pass beneath infrared slimming machines and glass shelves that brim with a rainbow of sun-luring lotions from Norvell and Devoted Creations.
The team at Interface Aesthetic Surgery Group specializes in beauty from the chin up. The surgeons are board-certified making them a well-qualified crew to turn to when considering an eyelid lift, forehead lift, or an overhead lift when ice-skating. The physicians are joined by an aesthetician, paramedical aesthetician, and a nurse practitioner, all of whom are ardent about skincare and helping each patient put his or her best face forward.
Stylists at Colors Couture treat their clients to head-to-toe beauty treatments. They turn clients' hair into manageable, flattering shapes with cuts, color, and conditioning treatments. Extensions add volume so guests don't have to shave all their Barbies' heads. Clients garner sun-kissed color in the salon's tanning beds, and technicians make toe tips and fingertips glossy with Shellac polish.
Spirit Soul and Body Holistic Family Wellness Center's leader?massage therapist and licensed aesthetician Rhonda Holt?draws from more than 25 years of experience to cultivate overall wellness during natural healing services. Aromatherapeutic scents and soft music fill a massage room, where couples can lie side-by-side as reiki and therapeutic massages create muscles that are laid-back enough to don Hawaiian shirts for their parole hearings. To beautify skin, aestheticians can wax off unwanted hair, apply makeup, and coat visages in custom facials that fight acne and target signs of aging. Along with peels and ionic footbaths, detoxifying treatments also include an infrared-sauna session that prompts the release of unhealthy toxins and candy bars stored beneath skin's surface.
The pressure from a massage therapist’s palm unravels a persistent knot in the shoulder. A flick of the wrist and hot wax lifts unwanted hair from an upper lip. Natural light pours into Etc. Skin & Body Salon as skilled aestheticians work alongside other members of the team, shaping nails and transforming complexions with exfoliating peels and facials. Clients may also retreat to a private room for an aromatherapy massage, which works to promote circulation to appendages, or a deep-tissue massage, which works to promote sap production in ailing tree limbs.
