As a child, aesthetician Erica Engler loved going to her grandmother’s beauty salon. She'd watch the ladies walk in looking one way and eagerly awaited seeing them leave all dolled up and ready to tackle the day. She noticed that with their physical makeover came also a mental transformation of increased confidence and relaxation, inspiring her to become a makeup artist.
Along with her team, Erica strives to make women feel more attractive and less stressed. In addition to her makeup services, she smoothes complexions with facials enhanced by Dermalogica products and hand and arm massages. Armed with Satin Smooth and NuFree wax, she swiftly removes hair from faces, arms, legs, and vestigial tails with waxing services. The massage therapists soothe aches and tension with sundry techniques including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, reflexology, and manual lymphatic drainage. With all of their services, Erica and her team aim to send clients back to their day-to-day activities feeling refreshed and more beautiful than a shimmering butterfly fluttering through a misty rainbow.
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.
