Marble statues and opulent light fixtures surround the pedicure chairs at Hollywood Nail & Spa, which could make clients feel as though they are getting their piggies pampered in the foyer of a Tuscan villa. The technicians here groom cuticles, artfully shape nails, and remove traces of cheese puff dust from fingers before applying coats of colorful polish or clear lacquers. Manicures leave hands silky smooth, while pedicures soften rough patches and calluses.
Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching children a program of STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
Sungum Salon's skincare professionals rejuvenate epidermises with treatments culled from time-honored methods and resources such as ancient Indian therapeutic techniques and Ayurvedic herbs. Their face-care services range from microdermabrasion and facial masks to steams and glycolic peels, whose ingredients—naturally extracted sugar cane, sugar beets, and raw grapes—exfoliate skin while diminishing wrinkles and acne scars. For the rest of the body, an exotic fruit or oatmeal-honey scrub exfoliates skin more effectively than lining your trousers with coarse-grain sandpaper. Sungum Salon's full-body treatments also include a seaweed-and-French-clay wrap, which infuses skin with nutrients, and henna sessions that adorn hands, feet, or backs with temporary ornate designs.
Although the stylists at Crisp Salon are seasoned professionals, each one is also a student. That's because they receive ongoing training with Aveda salon educators to keep their hair, nail, and makeup services right on the cusp of fashion. Stylists apply their up-to-date knowledge to deliver chip-free Shellac manicures, frizz-defying Brazilian blowouts, and makeovers with Aveda cosmetics. The environmentally friendly makeup line crafts bold colors and natural shades with non-petroleum minerals, natural botanicals, and a rainbow's leftover bathwater.
At The Beauty Clinic MedSpa, medically supervised aestheticians help clients attain their ideal appearance through a range of face and body services. Staff members undergo in-depth training to help visitors select the high-end products from derma e, DermOrganic, and Fake Bake to best suit their complexions. A slate of facials resurface skin with the help of microdermabrasions and natural enzymes, and eyelash extensions, laser hair removal, and permanent makeup leave a longer-lasting elegance than the beauty mark chiseled into Mount Rushmore.
When licensed aesthetician Sherry Smith isn't showcasing her beauty skills on WFAA-TV or teaching physicians about peels and laser aesthetics, she uses her extensive education and 25 years of experience to help patients look their best through various spa services. Besides treatments performed at her own salon, Smith's appointment book is full of industry speaking engagements and unwrinkled pages free of fine lines.
