Licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and permanent-makeup technicians work as a team to beautify clients from the forehead to the smallest toenail at Uptown Face and Body Care. Tense bodies melt under Swedish or deep-tissue massage techniques, and dull complexions disappear after infusions of vitamin C, minerals, and glycolic acid during facials and peels.
At Urban Butterfly, eyelash designer and skincare specialist Leslie Alderette enhances beauty with masterful eyelash-extension applications, waxing and threading, and facial treatments. Her background as a jewelry artist gives her a well-trained eye for fashion and beauty, as well as experience working with tiny fibers, which she draws on while delicately affixing each lash extension piece by piece.
At Beauty by Marina, steady-handed professional makeup artist and eyebrow-shaping specialist Marina enhances clients’ natural features with artistic daytime and evening looks for weddings and other special occasions. After consulting with clients, Maria sharpens ocular over-scores and finishes foundation with striking or subtle hues and vibrant shimmers to create dramatic looks for strutting down a red carpet, aisle, or airport moving walkway.
Krimson Hair Studio styles clients with an array of primping, shearing, and styling services. Dabble in makeover dramatics with a haircut and blowout by one of Krimson's friendly, gifted hair designers. A nimble-fingered shampoo and deep-conditioning treatment soothe scalps like a reverse petting soothes horses, while the haircut and style transform dull 'dos into brilliantly burning hair fires. Opt for a soak-off gel lacquer manicure finished with perky OPI polish to draw attention to your fingerparts, or a bikini wax to rid yourself of follicle forests. Male humans can get a shampoo, haircut, and blow-dry while relaxing amid lemon-soaked walls warmed by wood accents, stained-glass light fixtures, and keyhole-inspired windows.
GlamMe Beauty Studio’s team travel to homes, places of work, and dentists’ offices to pamper clients. They also work at 11 salons in LA and surrounding areas. Stylists cut hair, magically grow hair with extensions, and embellish strands with semipermanent color and highlights. They also beautify nails during mani-pedis, wax away fuzz on faces, and add drama to peepers with eyelash extensions.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
