Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
As its name suggests, Sierra Foothills Electrolysis specializes in using electricity to permanently clear bodies of unwanted hair. Electrolysis—the only FDA-approved treatment for permanent hair removal—uses a disposable stainless-steel probe to administer electrical currents small enough to zap off hair without damaging skin or creating beauty marks shaped like lightning bolts. Depending on the size and hair density of the treatment area, sessions can last anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours.
When the surface of skin becomes rough, it can make faces look uneven and prevent refreshing nutrients from doing their work. Aesthetician Jessica Lockard specializes in exfoliating treatments that combat rough skin, using diamond-tip wands, peels, body scrubs, and resurfacing agents to unearth more youthful epidermal layers. These treatments precede facials and other spa services, such as airbrush tans. Her treatments also include an education portion, in which she teaches clients how to keep their skin healthy at home by maintaining a safe distance from flesh-eating viruses. In addition to skin treatments, Jessica offers waxing for both men and women, as well as lash and brow retouching services.
Chelsea, a licensed aesthetician and owner of Bare Skin by Chelsea, specializes in facial and body waxing services. During each appointment, she uses a gentle hard wax that works with all skin and hair types. Chelsea also specializes in speed waxing, which means a typical Brazilian wax takes just 15 minutes.
From styling celebrity hair to revitalizing complexions with relaxing facials, the team at Willo Aveda, an Aveda concept salon, aims to fill local mirrors with visions of beauty. Stylists of five different experience levels wash and rinse hair before breathing new life into languishing strands with a tailored cut and blow-dry. Alternatively, hair artisans can deploy Aveda's 97%–99% naturally derived formulas to refresh hair with a single-process color or nourish locks with conditioning plant oils that leave hair shinier than a freshly licked ring pop. The stylists at Willo Aveda also stay engaged with their clients through an active blog that celebrates lauded hair happenings. Most recently, the business collaborated with other Aveda salons to help set a Guinness World Record for the most money raised for charity in 24 hours through haircuts alone.
