As a certified doctor of natural medicine, an aesthetician with years of experience, and a natural-health consultant, Irina is anything but a one-trick skin specialist. She puts her diverse background to use unearthing beauty with custom facials and permanent-makeup applications that keep eyebrows properly arched, lips colourful, and beauty marks firmly planted. While her staff meticulously performs mani-pedis and antibacterial, antimicrobial nonwax hair-removal treatments, Irina helms electrolysis and IPL sessions, as well as holistic Bowen-therapy treatments, which employ short bursts of rolling, massage-like moves designed to restore bodily balance and incite natural healing.
Minx Salon started out as a simple spray-tanning spot, but soon blossomed to include eyelash-extension services as well. The staff here devotes their full attention to both to ensure clients receive golden tans before capturing flutter-worthy lashes. Aside from facilitating these services, the staff teaches classes on becoming a professional eyelash technician, including application techniques, aftercare products, and micro-braiding techniques for special occasions.
At CoCo Laser & Body Care, laser-based and manual therapies combine on a menu designed for whole-body rejuvenation. Painting new appearances with broad strokes, lasers divest patients of unwanted hair or fat and hand-applied airbrush tans simulate a sun-kissed look. More detailed treatments highlight areas of aesthetic importance, such as by lengthening eyelashes, exfoliating faces, or polishing mint-condition coin tattoos.
Clients rest among modern artwork and steel accents in Dreams Laser & Spa’s red-and-black lounge before heading to private rooms covered in white. This less stimulating color helps ease clients’ minds and senses as aestheticians exfoliate their skin with glycolic peels, brighten smiles with AuraWhite, and define eyes with lash extensions.
Knock Outs Hair & Body Studio is a self-described progressive salon, which is apparent based on its clients who have purple streaks, mohawks, and crackle-polish manicures. That's not to say the staff members only create bold looks?a look at their before and after gallery shows everything from classic highlights and layered looks to twists. The staff includes three licensed stylists, as well as apprentices who, if they're anything like the movies, should be able to enchant brooms into sweeping up hair by themselves.
Black Pearl Beauty Loft's talented stylists treat craniums to luxurious scalp massages and haircuts, special-occasion updos, and hair extensions. Though the scalp sculptors capably embellish all types of tresses, they specialize in taming the oft-unruly frizziness and non-Euclidian geometry of curly hair. Body-length mirrors reflect a space with black leather furnishings and walls featuring black-and-white vine motifs, and technicians add splashes of color to manes and enhance eyelids with individual lash applications.
