Ever Beauty Clinic's certified permanent-makeup artist, Dr. Diny Park, makes facial features sing with artfully applied tattooed cosmetics. Using a specialized machine, the experienced techs carefully apply pigment and essence of Cleopatra into the skin's dermal layer. Clients can opt to accentuate lashes with the application of a solid line, small dots, or smudged line, or to fill in sparse or uneven brows. After the one-hour procedure, treatment areas may be slightly swollen and will darken over the next few days as they heal, peel, and fade. Permanent makeup is chosen by busy beauties who want to cut down on their morning-ritual time, as well as by alopecia patients and those allergic to traditional makeup and seasonal eyeliner hailstorms.
Kym Nicole has been a beauty guru since she was a kid, styling her dolls' hair and experimenting with her mother's makeup. She later became the go-to girl among friends for the latest beauty trends, so a cosmetology license was a logical next step. As Kym has advanced her talent with makeup and hair, she's moved far from her first doll clients, working with stars such as Kerry Washington and on projects for BET, VH1, and many more big names.
At Kym Nicole Beauty, she treats every client like a star, providing makeup services that include makeovers, eyebrow shaping, tattoo coverage, and much more. Custom coloring, weaving, relaxers, and other hair services are also available.
Dividing The Spa's chocolate-brown wood floors are multiple massage alcoves, each separated by a thin Japanese-style partition. In front of each alcove hangs a tied off yellow curtain––the curtain pulls shut. Now amid flickering candle light, licensed massage therapists blend light to moderate strokes with firm pressure to alleviate chronic tension. Clients may also request an invigorating facial treatment, or retreat to a private airbrush room for a new sun-kissed complexion without the harmful effects of UV rays.
