Dalia Arent writes on Hair by Dali at Liquid Salon and Spa's Facebook page that being a stylist is "being a friend, a mentor, and a little bit of a fairy godmother." This is especially the case when she preps ladies for proms and weddings by giving them sophisticated up-dos, glamorous makeup, and evil stepmothers to defy. While she sculpts manes with products by Redken and Moroccanoil, Dalia works alongside other beauty experts at Liquid Salon and Spa. Drop by the 3,000-square-foot spa to receive skin treatments ranging from facials to Botox.
The beauty experts at Mystique Salon transform clients into magnets for compliments with an array of hair, nail, and skin services. Skilled stylists cleanse coifs and administer all-over color or highlights using products by American Crew, Pureology, and Redken. For extra flair, they even incorporate feathers, tinsel, and dreamcatcher extensions that ward off nightmares of mullets chasing you around. In addition to hair services, the team also smoothes skin with facials and body waxes, and applies permanent makeup for long-lasting beauty.
Julia, a licensed aesthetician with more than 10 years of experience, combines traditional European skincare techniques with advanced technologies at Velvet Skin Care Therapy. She smoothes skin with facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels and naturally evens skin tones with SkinScript skincare products, which contain kojic and arbutin acid. Julia is also a state-certified permanent-makeup artist, and she uses hypoallergenic SofTap pigments to enhance her clients’ eyes, eyebrows, and lips while maintaining a natural look.
Touting herself as the Fancy Godmother, makeup artist Sarah Leone revels in granting the beauty wishes of her clients. Armed with synthetic mink eyelashes and professional hair and makeup products, she enhances her clients' natural beauty for photo shoots, weddings, or visits to upscale grocery stores. In addition to private sessions, she's also worked on campaigns for Target, Sebastian hair products, and ShopNBC.
Ulta's licensed staff, which partakes in ongoing training to keep skills sharp, creates customized looks and expert image enhancement using acclaimed beauty products. Like a loaf of bread in a space shuttle with a broken sunroof, hairstyles can grow stale between salon visits. A 45-minute coif-cultivation session, in which the stylist takes into account face shape and lifestyle, energizes follicles and forges a salon-fresh look. In the one-hour Dermalogica facial, an aesthetic augur examines skin in order to customize a course of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing session with Dermalogica products. The treatment leaves skin impeccable, like a recently buffed and oiled slab of marble.
The staff at Luminous Spa & Wellness pampers guests with powerful beauty routines that summon pure serenity. During a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, the staff can also soothe headaches with a lavender-oil scalp treatment. Services like these embody the spa's commitment to total-body wellness, rather than just beauty and rest alone.
In addition to skincare, massage, and aesthetic laser treatments, the staff fights cellulite and signs of aging with innovative technology. Their Synergie Cellulite Reduction treatments help smooth and shape problem areas. Alternatively, i-Lipo sessions use non-invasive, cool laser technology to sculpt bodies into lean lines. A private workout room and infrared sauna are available for customers to detoxify.
