En route to co-founding and directing Allure Skincare & Laser Center, Valerie Karpaty nabbed certification as a medical assistant, registration as a phlebotomist by the AAMA, a license to perform permanent makeup, and 10 years of experience as an aesthetician. She brings all this accrued knowledge to bear during FDA-approved skin and body treatments, which she uses primarily to avert the signs of aging. Like a sci-fi author's excuses for his story's many plot holes, Karpaty's services often rely on technology: Endermologie mechanically stimulates the skin to promote collagen production, and IPL laser treatments bathes faces in light from an elōs-brand machine to minimize blemishes. To further connect to the community, Karpaty participates in programs that give cancer patients bold new eyebrows.

There is always someone at Mai Salon to warmly welcome clients in. When that welcoming feeling is combined with the salon's exposed brick walls and hardwood floors, the space gives off a feel that's at once intimate and professional. Here, licensed stylists cut fashion-forward styles for mostly repeat clients, though the salon makes a point to welcome walk-ins as well. Men and women mostly come to Mai for chic cuts and rich color services, not to mention specialty treatments such as Keratin straightening and relaxers. But hair isn't the end of the line for the team's abilities. They also do eyebrow threading, and Mai Nails—a separate nail studio next door—sends clients out the door with spa French pedicures and gel manicures.

Amid pale-pink walls, a woman sits on a chic black chaise lounge, fluttering her freshly applied eyelashes. Here at Forever Eyelash, a team of savvy, meticulous stylists individually affix a range of synthetic lashes, from the spare natural set that slightly increases volume and length to the supernaturally voluminous Prestigious Queen set that can open a motion-activated door with a mere wink. The stylists can also nix unwanted hair from the face, legs, or intimate areas during waxing sessions.

The hair-removal experts at Shinny Threading Salon beautify unruly brows and fuzzy upper lips using the ancient art of threading. By carefully zipping twisted filaments across the face, they are able to remove multiple hairs at once, making threading much more efficient than plucking each hair individually or calling hairs by the wrong name until they feel unwelcome and leave. The team also offers waxing for larger areas of the anatomy, such as legs, underarms, backs, and bikini zones.
