For more than a quarter of a century, Sirrell has performed custom beauty and relaxation treatments using the most up-to-date techniques. She analyzes each client?s unique skin type before prescribing ideal products, which may come from high-end brands such as Jan Marini, Le Meiux, and Jane Iredale mineral makeup. The spa also invites guests to indulge in full-body waxing, detox slimming tummy wraps, make-up applications, and spray tans, all enhanced by soothing music and an air-filtration system that turns oxygen into giggle gas.
The phrase ?and more? can mean many things. At Spade Skin Care & More, Inc., some might say it refers to the extra mile their staff goes to ensure that guests experience an environment of total relaxation and tranquility. Following an in-depth consultation, clients are treated to flavored water, tea, or coffee before they are led to a private treatment room. There, they can relax and unwind before a skincare specialist arrives to perform a natural and non-invasive treatment such as laser body slimming, organic permanent makeup, massage therapy or Collagen Production Therapy. Following appointments, guests can recline in the quiet room or retreat to the lounge before venturing out to show off their rejuvenated look to their reflection in a glass bus stop shelter. Spade Skin & More's attention to detail has also garnered praise from its loyal clientele.

Though the salon?s name implies an emphasis on brows, the aestheticians at Busy Brows specialize in all hair from the eyebrows downward. The threading artists wield their pure-cotton strings to add precise arches to brows, and waxing technicians delete hair from large areas to create smooth legs, bikini lines, and backs. The salon?s trained eyelash technicians, meanwhile, individually apply up to 80 lashes per eye or LashDip solutions to create a blacker-than-black effect. These long, dramatic lashes last for weeks and can convey the sentiment, ?I have long eyelashes, even though I?m a firefighter and a mannequin.?
