Acrylic sculpted nails, hair extensions such as heat fusion, beads, and on the scalp, and Brazilian blowouts. These are just a few of the signature beauty treatments licensed cosmetologist and beauty expert Kim Gilbertson is certified to perform. For the past 10 years, Kim has revamped men and women with everything from cuts and color treatments to real human-hair extensions. Yet, she doesn’t stop at the obvious elements—she also lengthens and volumizes lashes with synthetic, mink, or polyester extensions and adds semi-permanent mascara for lower lashes lasting for roughly two weeks.
From their risque pinup-girl posters to their rock 'n' roll memorabilia, it's clear the stylists at Inked Kitty's Lounge invoke a vintage spirit—with a dash of sass. They bestow lads and ladies with retro looks, such as pompadours and finger waves, adding fun, bold touches, including Cruella de Vil stripes and Rosie the Riveter bandannas. Rock and punk 'dos edge toward the rebellious. Yet the team doesn't alienate classic elegance, administering gorgeous highlights and waxing services.
With close to a century of combined experience, the attentive stylists at Split Endz call upon modern-day cutting maneuvers and classic color techniques from the days when hairdryers were powered by steam engines. Friendly artists specializing in blanking out body canvases can deploy wax to evict lingering fuzz, resulting in more aerodynamic roller-coaster rides. The staff also rejuvenates skin with facials, leaving skin firm and youthful.
