Armed with an extensive selection of professional-strength glo therapeutics skincare products, The Face Place's licensed aesthetician, Kendra Pitner, combats signs of aging with hydrating facials and texture-transforming peels using lactic or glycolic acids. Pitner also cleans up features to draw attention to glowing skin by eradicating unwanted facial hair with Lycon wax and defining brows or lashes with a tinting process that convinces hairs to darken with a rousing 30-minute inspirational football speech.
The epidermal aces at Cosmetic & Laser MediSpa exfoliate skin and annihilate toxins for a vibrant visage. A wand-like microdermabrasion apparatus evicts the top tier of cells during 30–40 minute sessions. Session can blot out hyperpigmentation, fine lines, light acne scars, and leftover glitter.
Between the bright-green walls of Beauty Hair Salon, clients must pick which body part to primp first. They might pluck a favorite color from the polish shelf before consulting with nail technician Alisa, who began her professional career at age 18. Her meticulous approach to mani-pedis and acrylics ensures that her appointments are never rushed. Alternatively, hairstylists are on hand to trim and color new ’dos in front of tall mirrors. In the salon's aesthetic area, waxing services strip away unwanted hair, facials brighten complexions, and massages relax shoulders more easily than attempts to turn shrugs inside out.
Lakisha Morgan wields shears, foil, extensions, and razors with equal ease as she styles men’s and women’s hair. Her work speaks for itself, leaving her to utter little more than a monosyllable in its praise. She offers some particularly special services, as well, such as natural hair extensions. She weaves together strands from two humans to create a single, cohesive look, much like tying two strongmen together by their mustache curls to create a super strongman.
