Skin experts at Esthetics Center rely on noninvasive scientific advancements to cultivate smooth, youthful complexions but draw on an ancient Indian art to redesign unruly eyebrows. Skin analyses can lead to custom facials with Shahnaz Husain herbal creams, enzyme therapy gentle enough for those with rosacea, or the outing of secret identities with better skin. Advanced exfoliation procedures involving microcrystal sprays and chemical serums reveal fresh, healthy skin as well as the depth of the aestheticians' knowledge. Body and facial waxing is an exclusive privilege of women at Esthetics Center, but the team extends their skills in eyebrow threading—an age-old technique that uses thread to nab hair but not skin—to both sexes.
Le Cachet Lounge's experienced aestheticians beautify both faces and bodies with eyelash extensions and microdermabrasion facials as well as airbrush tanning, full-body waxing, and makeup services. They use top products such as Xtreme Lashes, which can add curve, length, and thickness to eyelashes before modeling gigs or visits to a Jumbotron-operator convention. Knowledge from Glo-Mineral Makeup certifications shines during makeup applications, and elixirs infused with vitamin C, salicylic acids, or moisturizers give strength to facial treatments.
The number one hair enemy is chewing gum. Number two is aesthetician Anna Mansaw, a graduate of The Marinello Schools of Beauty, who effortlessly banishes unflattering fuzz from your body and face. Her skills with an eyeliner pencil are equally impressive. All it takes is time, patience, and a little inspiration and Anna can create a discrete eyelid fade or go all out with a bold leopard-print design.

Wurstle endeavors to revolutionize the classic American hot dog by concocting a menu of completely customizable and mess-free gourmet sausages. Three types of baguette encase half a dozen sausage choices—each MSG- and filler-free —in standard, junior, or mini-sizes, which customers can each crown with an array of toppings such as homemade mustard, spicy ketchup, or Wurstle-kraut. The kitchen crew trades in their deep fryer for the oven, complementing their hand-held feasts with healthful baked accompaniments of french fries, Nutella puffs, and piping hot sodas.
Drawing upon her clinical background at a skin-treatment facility, Kenlee’s Skin Shop’s eponymous owner tends to wearied dermises with services that include facials, microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and waxing. Before embarking on facial or body treatments, Kenlee reads freckle horoscopes during a custom skin analysis that accounts for dryness and distinguishes dirt from penciled-on mustaches. Rather than trust other beauty purveyors for cosmetics that complement her many skin treatments, Kenlee stocks her studio’s shelves with her own mad-scientist creations. KSS Mineral Makeup boasts nine signature shades and three universal powders to help create a smooth, even complexion free of acne blemishes and glued-on clown noses.
