The design-minded staff of JL Nails & Lashes adds extra glamour to fingers and faces by building off of their existing beauty. Lash extensions line eyelids with a thicket of faux strands, whose upward arcs bestow eyes with a lusher appearance and errant raindrops with a thrilling roller-coaster ride. Manicures and pedicures douse nails in glitter, stencil whimsical shapes and sports-team logos, or affix durable acrylic tips for added length.
Licensed massage therapist Emily Sparks attended Eagle Gate College, where she perfected hands-on techniques such as Swedish massage, deep-tissue bodywork, and opening a pickle jar with one finger.

Armed with nothing more than a piece of cotton thread, the technicians at Brow Spa 24 deftly remove unwanted hair from clients’ faces and bodies. The completely chemical-free process can mold eyebrows into arches that best complement clients’ facial structure or trick people into thinking they're St. Louis. Below the neck, they twist thread over arms and legs, evicting any hair they come in contact with. Patrons can also lend their faces to a cosmetologist for a fluttery set of eyelash extensions or decorate their body with an intricate henna tattoo.
For the past 13 years, Natty’s job has focused on one thing: making clients look their best with beauty enhancements for hair, nails, and lashes. To this day, she fulfills that goal with styling and coloring services for women and men. Her specialties include extensions and weaves. For complete makeovers, she contours facial features with permanent-makeup applications and draws attention to peepers with eyelash extensions. To further the transformations, she welcomes clients to mollycoddle their hands and feet with mani-pedis or rejuvenate their skin with facials from Mary Kay consultants.
Behind the glittering glass storefront of Jersey Tan, four levels of tanning beds glow ready to equip bodies with a burnished hue. Their specially designed lamps caress skins with UV light in up to 20-minute sessions, kicking the body's melanin into high gear. Alternately, a sheer coating of carefully calibrated color airbrushes skin in a Mystic Tan booth, giving a sun-kissed look without the UV exposure of making out with the actual sun.
