Salon Maia owner Melissa Maia and makeup artist Kelly LeBlanc specialize in making brides' wedding-day visions a reality. The duo performs on-location, preceremony transformations and has collaborated on bridal showcases for New Orleans Bride magazine. Within the magazine's pages, Maia and Leblanc have offered tips for brides-to-be, such as trying out a variety of lipstick colors, deep-conditioning hair six weeks before the wedding, and securing updos with a hairspray that is specifically designed to repel rice.
Within the art-covered, bright blue and white walls of the salon itself, Maia and her team of stylists nourish clients' hair with high-quality products. They use the Pureology and Redken lines to cleanse, condition, and color, and the sought-after Agadir Argan oil spray treatment to repair and protect damaged strands.

While the styling bar at this trendy salon elicits friendly chatter from bridal parties, girly days out, and friends? spa days, Studio One Style Bar?s blowouts aren?t just for special occasions. The professional treatment can also refresh hairdos between cuts, maintaining its frizz-free sleekness, bouncy curls, or to-scale model of a birdhouse for days after the session. Each of the salon?s signature Brazilian blowouts includes a massaging shampoo and styling in the design of choice, with optional makeup applications, facials, and lash services available to create a whole makeover. The salon also caters to male clientele, offering hairstyling treatments augmented with a hot shave and brow groomings. For clients who want to maintain their glow all year long, the salon offers yearly memberships that include a once-a-month styling.
After graduating from John Jay Cosmetology School in 2001, Stacey Pardo began offering her services professionally out of Flawless Beauty Bar, a full-service beautification outpost that values singular styles that fuse with each client's particular sensibilities. Stacey spends a good deal of quality time at the outset of each appointment getting to know clients before letting her shears loose. Men's and women?s cuts and styles upgrade bedraggled hairdos before important occasions such as weddings, receptions, or postnuptial Waffle House dinners, and high- or lowlights add chromatic flair. An array of waxing services whisk unwanted hair from chins, lips, and brows, eliminating uninvited stubble and persistently migratory strands of hair.
The definition of beauty is subjective and vast, causing some people to strive for clear skin while others care only about the slimness of their waistlines. At Skin Science, owner Sherril Monson aims to accommodate as many beauty needs as possible in one place. Led by medical director Dr. Shannon Pickens, her team of certified technicians plumps up complexions with Botox injections, reduces the appearance of cellulite during VelaShape treatments, and zaps unwanted hair with Palomar lasers. The staff's facial treatments employ skincare products from Obagi, SkinCeuticals, ZO Skin Health by Dr. Zein Obagi., and Clarisonic, all of which are available for purchase in Skin Science?s retail shop.
Though the walls of Bella Brazilian Wax are predominantly white, a few periodic splashes of bright-pink and baby-blue paint bring the space to life. The simple decor belies the sophistication of the approach taken by the studio?s licensed aestheticians, who aim to make clients as comfortable as possible while they work. To that end, they use organic hard wax, which solidifies and pulls off hair without the mess or yanked skin of traditional strips. A skilled tech can lift fuzz from a brow or upper lip, or provide a full-body session that works well for hard-to-manage areas, such as the underarms, back, and fingernails.
