?Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,? says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
Whether guests are looking for a new hairstyle, perfectly painted nails, or a glowing complexion, Envogue Salon & Spa can help. Its stylists craft coifs with precision cuts and transform hair with beautiful L'Or?al Professionel and Inoa color, and nail techs pamper hands and feet with luxurious mani-pedis. Beauty transformations don't end with haircare and nailcare. The spa also offers facials, waxes, and threadings, plus airbrush tans and Couleur Caramel makeup applications. In addition, permanent makeup keeps morning routines simple and stops pillowcases from badmouthing errant mascara.
Arista applies its excellent customer service to the Brazilian Blowout, a hair-health inducing treatment that can cut follicle fussing time in half. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, a 90-minute Brazilian blowout coats each shaft of your hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. An Arista stylist will then blow-dry and flat-iron your locks, re-proteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again. Free of harsh chemicals, your new, smooth, and lovely radiance lasts up to 12 weeks and can be washed and dried without dulling damage.
Like any passionate artist, Shannon practices her craft in all areas of life. When she's not at home painting or creating handmade jewelry, she mans a styling station at Jhon Josephson Salon. Here, she draws from fifteen years of experience styling for both men and women, cutting and coloring their hair, and smoothing visages with facial waxing. Besides being trained with Framesi, TIGI, Joico, and Redken, she also beautifies guests with professional products from Aquage, CHI, and Enjoy—all of which currently line the salon’s shelves. Shannon seldom double-books appointments, allowing her to pay careful attention to the looks of each patron during highlighting sessions or games of peekaboo.
Tangerine Skin’s aestheticians aim to prevent skin irritations before they become bothersome. They slather Image Skincare products over faces, keeping acne at bay, unclogging pores, and mopping up excess oil. In all, the staff renders 10 skin treatments and 8 facials. The staff also expertly twists a piece of cotton thread over brows, removing unwanted hairs for that coveted look of a McDonald’s arch. When a single thread won’t do, they evict fuzzy patches on upper lips and legs with warm wax.
Deluxe Hair & Boutique’s barbers, stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians have clients covered from head to toe in the beauty department. They color hair and keep it smooth with the help of Schwarzkopf, Keratin Complex, and Moroccanoil products. In the mani-pedi section, a technician paints fingernails and toenails using bottles of brightly colored polish. The aesthetician takes care of skin, rehydrating faces and waxing everything from legs to wings.
