At Jese Salon, hair stylist Jenny and aesthetician Ses work together to totally revamp visages. Jenny cuts hair into trendy styles and employs coloring techniques that range from face-framing highlights to ombre color. Ses, meanwhile, treats guests to indulgent European facials as well as soothing acne treatments, acupressure skin therapy, and waxing services for brows and upper lip.
Eco Wash Hawaii employs a waterless wash system that's friendly to the environment. Every product used for waterless wash and wax services is biodegradable. From their outpost at the Windward Mall, staff members also restore headlights and work with minor scratch removal. Patrons are free to catch a movie or browse boutiques while their car receives its earth-friendly wipedown.
Our product line is different from others, due to an extraction of impurities on the molecular level. This innovative extraction process, known as Chiral Correct, increases product purity, concentration, and effectiveness, which in turn allows our products to be Toxin-Free.
After a career of working with therapeutic lasers, Dr. Branan Dewees of SlimCo of Maui helped develop the Body Light system?a body-contouring treatment that helps emulsify fat with powerful yet gentle LED lights. Dr. Dewee uses his non-invasive system to help dispel stubborn inches from common target areas, such as the midsection and thighs, while clients relax to music or nature sounds.
Balinese traditions fuse with European and Hawaiian techniques at Mandara Spa. Each Mandara Spa adopts its locations's culture into its extensive list of services, using indigenous ingredients and traditions. At its two Hawaiian locations, Mandara uses coconut, chocolate macadamia, papaya, vanilla, island coffee, Hawaiian sea salt, limu kala, and Pikake flowers to create massages, facials, conditioning scalp treatments, and mani-pedis. Mandara's aestheticians execute each service using such high-end beauty products as Elemis, Bliss, and the spa's signature line of bath products.
Rock music and pizza. It’s an unlikely pairing as the inspiration for an Aveda salon, but in the hands of friends Jentry and Katy, it grew beyond that as the foundation of their local hair and makeup hub.
An Austin native, co-owner, and stylist, Jentry would sneak into his hometown’s Black Cat music venue while still underage to catch sight of acts such as Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Over the years, the hall came to represent Austin’s unique charm and live-music foundation, never succumbing to gimmickry or the status-quo throughout its lifespan. The venue’s ability to stick to its roots stayed with Jentry, remaining an inspiration when years later, he and a client, marketing whiz Katy, dreamed of opening their own salon. After months of late-night pizza-and-brainstorming sessions, the concept for their salon came full circle when a black kitten curled up on Jentry’s porch. In a unique move toward remembering a tenacious rock bar and what it stood for, the twosome founded their salon: The Black Cat.
Today, a fleet of stylists brandish their shears, color, and powder puffs amid decor that reflects The Black Cat’s grittier roots. Clients see the vintage script of the “Sorry, We’re Open” front sign before encountering the salon’s gray and blue walls accented with rustic wood furniture and panels. The result is a carefully curated contrast of sleek and scuffed, much like a hitchhiker’s diamond cufflinks.
