Leslie, one of the expert stylists at Kapolei Hairstyling, is always happy to help someone brainstorm new ideas for a hairstyle or hair color. She starts each appointment with a consultation, during which her client might decide on foil highlights, a perm, or an updo for a special occasion, such as a wedding or a Monday. The beauty expert—who works with men, women, and kids—can also apply makeup and wax away unwanted facial fuzz.
Despite their workplace's name, the staff at Freedom Laser Hair Removal have more than one beauty trick up their sleeves. Of course, they use laser light to damage hair follicles so that legs, arms, upper lips, and backs stay smoother than a newborn bowling ball. But they also use lasers to tighten facial skin, diminish the size of pores, and reduce the appearance of spider veins.
Owner Connie Chang and the team at Hawaii Kai Salon & Day Spa LLC pamper their clients from head to toe with a full menu of hair, skin, and body treatments. They use organic color to imbue tresses with stylish hues untainted by ammonia hydroxide or crude oil, whereas Korean straightening perms diffuse frizz. Waxing treatments whisk unwanted hair from nearly any area of the anatomy and massages evict tension from muscles and minds.
