There are many ways to banish unwanted hair, and short of learning alchemy, the stylists and aestheticians at SkinSense MediSpa & Salon have mastered nearly all of them. Armed with high-end products from Redken and Pureology, the styling team manages to deftly snip away extraneous length and split ends, leaving clients with flattering styles. On the other side of the salon, waxing artists remove unwanted hairs to reveal the smooth skin that lies beneath. And from within the salon's advanced treatment area, specialists perform SkinSense's lineup of medical treatments that includes Botox, spider-vein removal, and laser hair reduction.
The licensed aesthetic artists at Permanent Beauty Studio offer a variety of services to keep clients at their most beautiful. Artists enhance faces with permanent makeup on a range of areas, including the eyelids, eyebrows, hairline, and lips. They also apply eyelash extensions, which help lashes stay full and fluttering.
During Hilda Dickerson's 11-year stint working at her friend's salon, she dreamt of owning her own place. Now that dream is a reality. In the comfort of New Beginnings the Salon, Hilda and her personal team of skilled stylists transform tresses with products by Redken, Biolage, and Matrix. But hair services are just the beginning. Clients can stretch out their arms for long-lasting OPI gel manicures or big, long hugs, or they can say goodbye to built-up grime with restorative facials. Aestheticians further ensure smooth skin by removing unwanted facial fuzz with a specialty wax.
At Body Enhancement, clients don't have to worry about what they'll look like after treatment. That's because the spa and salon uploads an array of before-and-after pictures to its Facebook page, showing actual results from its body wraps, microdermabrasion treatments, and hair-coloring appointments. Here, clients can rid themselves of unwanted body fat, bronze their skin with airbrush tanning, or throw vampire hunters off their track by infuse their locks with sun-kissed color. They also reap the benefits of handpicked products from renowned skincare line Arbonne, which crafts its formulas with natural ingredients that soften and illuminate skin.
Beth Aleksa, a busy mother of four, first turned to permanent makeup to cut down on the time she spent getting ready in the morning, and later decided to lend her Technicolor savvy to others via A Fine Line Permanent Cosmetics. Beth and fellow permanent-makeup artist Bill Moreland use an intradermal pigmentation process to tuck natural pigments of color into the dermis, making sparse eyebrows appear fuller and more defined without pencil or spray paint, and subtly accenting eyes. They further enhance faces with permanent makeup for lips, can cover stretch marks, and also offers long-lasting eyelash extensions in a range of lengths.
Stylist Melissa Fleskes loves color. Within the calm, green confines of The Salon at Bella Suites, she transforms hair into eye-catching coiffures. She arms herself with swift shears, professional products, and Rusk Deepshine color, which uses marine minerals to imbue newly pigmented locks with deep shine and the ability to socialize with octopuses.
