Lorine Mikhaeil leads a busy life. A trained nurse and a certified permanent makeup artist, she helms Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) as well as Zena Day Spa, Derma Blush, and American Permanent Cosmetics Institute. But no matter how busy Lorine gets, she always takes her time with her clients.
At OPM, Lorine uses a semi-permanent organic ink to expertly define brows, lips, eyelids, and even areolas for those affected by breast cancer. This metal-free formulation gives her greater control when she is applying the ink into the upper dermal layer. During these treatments, Lorine uses an advanced power pin and for brows a specialized hairbrush stroke method that she invented herself, which gives the illusion of 3D brow strands. To ensure clients are inked with complementing colors, Lorine refers to the Fitzpatrick skin type chart to make sure brows match their skin tone and auras.
Though OPM's name focuses on one service, the boutique spa's menu is brimming with a range of other aesthetic treatments. Strands stand no chance against OPM's three hair removal systems, which include waxing, threading, and laser hair removal. Alternately, dermal fillers and microdermabrasions keep complexions firm and looking younger than a toddler holding a newborn dolphin.
A psychology doctoral student and Emmy-nominated actress, Ashley Peldon, founder of Starring…! Fragrances, turns organic ingredients into nose-pleasing scents. After analyzing the responses to an online survey, Peldon infuses each personality fragrance with hints of the wearer’s favorite color, season, and phobia. Customers can build a sweet custom fragrance from a frosted-cupcake essence or bask in a honey-scented magic potion to woo an entire apiary. The Crossover Act perfume lures nostrils with a white-chocolate aroma, and The Indie Movie Star brims with juicy notes of peach and coconut. Whether ordering a custom perfume or a previously imagined scent, shoppers can choose between a skin-friendly oil foundation and an alcohol base sourced from organic grapes.
In addition to crafting olfactory delights, Peldon protects skin and the environment with bath-and-body products that eschew parabens. Rosehips tango with jojoba oil to form three-in-one shower gel, which doubles as an organic shampoo and bubble bath. Instead of shielding underarms with foil, customers can let the veggie-based enzymes of Pit Stop deodorant deflect odors without aluminum.
