Celebrity Glam Squad's clients literally do not have to lift a finger beyond the finger they use to open their front door. The mobile beauty company's team of makeup artists piles into a pink-and-black Range Rover, arriving onsite to prep individuals or groups for events such as weddings, proms, or driver's-license renewals. Pulling from an arsenal of airbrush foundations and MAC Pro cosmetics, the aestheticians can pop in for a simple makeup application or bring along a hairstylist, fashion consultant, and lifestyle coach for an all-day head-to-toe makeover. Regular clients can sign up for annual memberships, which grant discounted services, free upgrades to airbrush makeup, and priority accommodations for last-minute requests.
Each Eye Doctor?s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop?s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp?s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.
At The Little Vintage Salon & Spa, an ensemble of nail technicians, stylists, and aestheticians buzz back and forth across as they beautify bodies from tip to tip. Staff scurry about administering soothing spa treatments, lavishing visages in a relaxation-inducing cucumber facial and treating paws to a deluxe spa pedicure's mint sea scrub. Experienced hair gurus employ Redken and Pureology products to perform strand-reviving feats with salon services such as partial foils, special-occasion styling, and sculpting coifs into David.
Armed with Redken, Pureology, and Rusk hair care products, the stylists at The Little Vintage Salon & Spa create flattering new looks with cuts and color. They employ keratin treatments to tame frizzy or frazzled tresses and extensions to add length, volume, or climb-ability to heads. At manicurist stations, nail techs adorn fingers with colorful coats of traditional, Shellac, or gel polish, while back in the spa's private treatment rooms massage therapists knead tension with Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone services.
There are many paths to self improvement. The Laser and Cosmetic Center recognizes both internal and external routes to perfection. Hypnotherapist Maureen draws on experience accumulated at Temple, Barry, and Harvard universities to help patrons use their own hidden inner strengths to quit smoking, lose weight, or improve their general mindsets.
Dr. A. Valdes, the resident physician at the center, helps work on the surface to work towards beauty. He isn't fond of scalpels, preferring to rejuvenate his clients' faces without surgery, smoothing out wrinkles and adding volume with dermal injections. He administers injections of Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and other fillers, targeting areas such as crow's feet and smile lines. He can even perform non-surgical face-lifts and lessen double chins without hiding one beneath a Victorian ruff.
The center's expert staff also performs a variety of other cosmetic treatments. Their Candela laser removes unwanted body hair, as do electrolysis sessions. Facials, microdermabrasion, and clinical peels help to clarify complexions, while permanent makeup lends definition to eyebrows and lips. There's a Harvard-educated hypnotherapist on staff as well, who strives to curb bad habits and addictions.
Ever since the early '80s when human hair spontaneously started to grow, Olga Roche has dutifully kept it in line with her specialty styling services. She and her staff are always on the cutting edge of fashion, knowledgable in the latest techniques in cut and color. Clients may also dip their toes into the salon's other beautifying services, which range from nailcare and waxing to invigorating facial treatments.
