The staff at Perfect Skin Studio understands that unlike shar-pei puppies and time, faces should not have wrinkles. With this in mind, the spa's repertoire of skincare services focuses on combating the signs of aging and stress with the use of paraben-free products. Each service, from acne-clearing teen facials to skin-brightening chemical peels, begins with a consultation to give the aesthetician more information in order to tailor the treatment to individual skin type. The staff also lavishes attention on the rest of the body, giving skin an all-over glow while shaping silhouettes with slimming body wraps. Waxing services ensure clients leave the studio more meticulously groomed than a tribe of obsessive-compulsive chimpanzees.
After years of running themselves ragged with high-powered jobs in the finance industry, friends Betty and Didi were stressed out and overworked. This negative impact on their physical health and relationships led them to question their careers and explore options that might have a more beneficial impact on themselves and others. After discovering their individual talents for styling hair, they opened Didi's Hair Salon, where they've continued to develop an arsenal of advanced hair coloring, cutting, and conditioning techniques. The salon's free WiFi and complimentary bottled water, coffee, and tea help put clients at ease as Didi and Betty coax split ends from their locks and gossip about ill-behaved hairbrushes.
Golden Touch Haircuts & Shaves' staff of certified master barbers adds a touch of class and a dollop of hot lather to each client's grooming experience. The men’s salon's signature cuts include all-around scissors work, flat tops, and El 7s. No matter the style, during each cut the barbers forge a defined look and painstakingly pursue every wayward strand—a process that includes a hot-lather neck shave, an air hose, and an oil sheen. Clients can have their shaggy beards shaped with a general beard trimming, or they can choose a popular facial grooming style such as the goatee, the chin strap, or Odin's weekend look. Hot shaves, braiding, and eyebrow trimming round out the options for men looking for a polished finish.
Inside any of Hairdoctors Specialty Salons' five full-service locations, skilled aestheticians treat hair and nails with a range of pharmaceutical and natural services. They trim and style hair, perform keratin treatments, and color strands using crayons or ammonia-free dyes and cellophanes. The staff’s work extends beyond hair services via manicures and pedicures. Aestheticians also add to clients' existing hair with extensions—strands made from Remy or virgin Indian human hair and attached to scalps via weaving, taping, fusion, or gluing. Hairdoctors Specialty Salons also posts informative hair-extension FAQs on its website.
The aestheticians of Skincare by Pevonia care about only one thing as much as they care about revitalizing complexions—protecting the planet. They marry their passions by fueling each service with naturally derived products developed in-house by beauty-conscious Swamp Things. The Pevonia Botanica line forbids animal testing and packages each formula inside eco-friendly containers. Though organic elements such as oxygen and hot stones factor into many of the facials and massages, the aestheticians also captain high-tech methods including radio-frequency and LED-light therapies.
