The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
Medical weight-loss programs, permanent makeup, and ... yoga? It might seem like an unlikely combination, but these services and more are all offered at Dermedics. Here, skilled medical and aesthetics experts help clients feel better, inside and out. Professional skin care treatments, such as exfoliating microdermabrasion and cleansing facials, leave complexions glowing, while body-contouring technology and customized weight-loss plans help reduce inches. Meanwhile, a private yoga studio welcomes clients seeking to harmonize their minds with their freshly refurbished and sponge-painted exteriors.
The trained staff at La Bella Salon combine classic beauty rituals, such as manicures and waxing, with modern aesthetic techniques, such as laser hair removal for every skin shade. Not far from the glimmer of an onsite jewelry shop, trained stylists sculpt flattering 'dos with Biolage and Wella products, and aestheticians personalize facials to each forehead crease. Massage therapists drain stress reserves with soothing strokes and ensure that their craft lives on by teaching massage-instruction programs and hiring monks to transcribe their cosmetic handbook word by word.
Like artists, stylists often learn tricks of the trade from mentors, continuing a rich tradition and forming a solid base from which to grow. Kara Staats, for instance, draws upon the knowledge and fashion savvy of stylist Tricia Anderson, who, according to Forum magazine, studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. Staats is also an alumna of that renowned hair-design school, and since tossing her graduation cap into the air has undergone further training to become certified as a GKhair educator. In addition to leaving hair silky and smooth with GKhair's protein-rich formula, Staats transforms looks with cuts and highlights, airbrush makeup, and DreamCatcher extensions that prevent hair from having nightmares about bear traps mistaken for barrettes.
At Waves of Color, owner Melissa calls upon more than 10 years of experience to guide each stylist through an extensive training program. Service rates are based on the experience levels and height of the staff members, who perform a variety of salon and spa services ranging from hair and nail care to skincare and waxing. Available for purchase onsite, the salon's collection of products envelops brands such as Moroccanoil, OPI, and Pureology.
