Jessica Chapman rarely offers a service that she hasn't tried herself. For example, she found the Norvell spray-tan formula after experiencing spray tans that missed spots or left her a glowing orange. Her other services include synthetic mink eyelash extensions, hair removal with hard and soft waxes, paraffin treatments, and hand and foot treatments. Among the other high-end products she uses are "Synthetic Mink lashes" by JB lashes, both the regular and organic Norvell spray tan solutions, and the regular and organic Cirepil soft and hard waxes.
Like a good relationship or a flower with a fertilizer addiction, Shador is growing. The staff of sugaring experts and aestheticians recently migrated to a new space, which has meant an upgrade in facilities and the ability to offer massages. Each service, from botanically based detoxifying body wraps to custom facials, helps to beautify and relax clients. For hair removal, the staff eschews the discomfort of hot wax in favor of a natural sugaring serum that pulls hair out in the direction of growth, and favored strands are magnified through the individual application of synthetic or mink eyelash extensions.
At Silhouette Organic Beauty Lounge, guests enjoy a completely organic experience. Along with the organic hair and skincare products—many of which are also vegan, gluten-free, or wheat-free—the beauty lounge also provides local, organic teas for guests. The spa even features LED lighting, which is softer on the eyes than fluorescent lighting or interrogations done with the spotlights used to illuminate the space shuttle at night.
While the choice of beauty services can vary widely—from a keratin treatment to lash extensions or a mani-pedi—there's a common purpose in all of them. The staff aims to have guests leave feeling refreshed and beautiful, which is easier to guarantee since there are no harmful chemicals used in the services.
The specialists at ILash Factory favor eyelash extensions made from fine materials, be they soft silk, feathery faux mink, or shimmery genuine unicorn tail. They affix luxurious extensions in a variety of sizes to natural lashlines one by one, arranging them in a choice of looks that include dramatic, cat-eye, and natural. After the initial application, which can take up to two hours, the lash specialist offers follow-up appointments during which they touch up and restore extensions after weeks of wear.
Dulce Lash Lounge outfits eyes with 300 lash types that vary by material, thickness, curve, length, and color. During the noninvasive procedure, semipermanent extensions are attached to the client’s own lashes using safe surgical glue, yielding a voluminous look without the mess of mascara. Clients also can solicit Dulce’s other indulgent spa services, such as chemical peels and detoxifying body wraps. Additionally, the lounge's lash experts offer training—covering technique, safety, and hygiene, among other subjects—to those who are pursuing certification in eyelash-extension application.
