From haircare to henna, the beauty specialists at Afsheen Aesthetics N Salon cater to a wide range of aesthetic needs. Facial services, such as microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels, refresh skin, whereas makeup services beautify clients for special occasions. Threading and waxing services are also available.
Expert mane mavens at Blo-Out Lounge, which has garnered shout-outs from LA Girl, help guests choose one of five blow-out options, including Big Sexy Hair, with volume and curls, or the straight, sleek look of Urban Girl. Before sudsing up and styling locks, tress tamers evaluate the hair's condition and select a preexisting Bumble and bumble hair mask or whip up a custom creation. The masks soak into strands beneath a hot-towel wrap for about 10 minutes, and, depending on the mask, quench parched skull grass, bolster thickness, or make hair shinier than a bald head dipped in liquid gold.
As the name indicates, the staff at Dermal Dynamics specialize in treating the dermis. The aestheticians and massage artists work on all things skin, even its underlying tissues. Through microdermabrasion, they create clear complexions. The Dermal Dynamics team also tends to eyelash extensions, massage therapy, cellulite treatments, and waxing.
The aesthetic experts at Spa Shizen pamper patrons from head to toe with a bag of visage- and digit-enhancing tricks. Microdermabrasion treatments send dead skin cells onto their next lives as Halloween masks, and permanent makeup ensures eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner stay put. Unruly strands find themselves realigned after a Brazilian blowout, and waxing services remove unwanted body and facial hair. Guests can also opt for a wide range of mani-pedis to polish their finger and toe armor. Additionally, Spa Shizen's aestheticians pass on their extensive knowledge during eyelash-extension, waxing, and permanent-makeup classes for professionals.
At ArchiTexture, coloring specialists are just as likely to infuse a client's hair with a dusky glow as they are to stencil in some neon-pink lightning bolts. Owner Erika Harding values technical expertise as well as artistic expression?an attitude that's also shared by her team of seven hair stylists, an aesthetician, and two licensed massage therapists.
All visits begin with a consultation, during which staffers work with clients to determine their style goals. While colorists infuse hair with colors ranging from subtle to avant-garde, stylists perform custom cuts for men and women. In the spa, steady hands massage visages with an array of organic facials and PCA peels. The salon's creative atmosphere also extends to its in-house art gallery.
