As a young girl, Lieska constantly got into her mother?s and sister?s makeup, wigs, clothes, and shoes. She put on fashion shows for her family, acting as the makeup artist, hair designer, and stylist. So her family wasn't surprised to find out Lieska wanted to be a professional makeup artist and aesthetician.
She now has her own operation, Couture By Lieska, where she smoothes complexions with acne and anti-aging treatments and phototherapy facials. She further fine tunes bodies with quick waxes and lash extensions. Lieska also teaches clients how to properly put on eyeliner and blend foundation during makeup lessons or simply applies their makeup for them for special events, including weddings, photo shoots, and family pictures with the mall Easter Bunny.
Acupuncture and Massage College helps its surrounding communities in two ways: by teaching students the art of pain and stress relief through therapeutic treatments and by empowering those students to treat those in need. With guidance from experienced instructors, students learn the various techniques of ancient acupuncture and massage, both in the classroom and in the field. Patients can come to the college and bid adieu to their aches and worries by lying down in a treatment room and be treated by a supervised learning practitioner. Students shoo away pain with 50-minute acupuncture treatments or massage sessions, customized to address problematic areas or work around any ventriloquist dummies clients refuse to put down.
Inside any of Hairdoctors Specialty Salons' five full-service locations, skilled aestheticians treat hair and nails with a range of pharmaceutical and natural services. They trim and style hair, perform keratin treatments, and color strands using crayons or ammonia-free dyes and cellophanes. The staff’s work extends beyond hair services via manicures and pedicures. Aestheticians also add to clients' existing hair with extensions—strands made from Remy or virgin Indian human hair and attached to scalps via weaving, taping, fusion, or gluing. Hairdoctors Specialty Salons also posts informative hair-extension FAQs on its website.
Cosmetic procedures at the Miami Center for Dermatology take place under the watchful gaze of board-certified dermatologist Deborah Longwill and Lawrence Schiffman, who takes pride in youthifying patients without costing them undue downtime. Like ingesting bubble gum, infusing your skin with Botox takes about 10 minutes and produces results that last up to four months. Treated lines, wrinkles, crow's feet, and cow's knees are significantly lessened, and faces emerge looking freshly ironed. Mimicking technology originally developed for Saran Wrap, the Alma Accent laser employs radio frequency to melt away cellulite and tighten skin on large areas (front thigh, back thigh, and butt) and small areas (arms, love handles, chin/neck) in a procedure that's much less invasive than traditional liposuction.
Primos Barber Shop offers a variety of grooming services for men of all ages amid a retro-meets-recent atmosphere. After plopping down into a comfy, oversized barber chair, customers can sip on a complimentary beverage as expert scissor wielders tend to their scratchy scalp sweaters, starting with an American Crew shampoo. Necks and shoulders are then freed of tension with a relaxing massage after a trim or buzz frees hair of sticky wasp nests. Warm towels and Truefitt & Hill shaving cream soften the skin before faces are transformed into sleek visages with a straight-edge razor.
