At Barberrenos, professional stylists revamp hair and a staff of spa technicians tends to bodies. Soon after guests settle into the salon?s chairs and consult with their stylist, shears begin to clip away at split ends, and streaks of color begin to flash across scalps. Nail technicians also apply glossy acrylics and tend to feet with massages. Waxing treatments remove fuzz from legs and mustaches glued to upper lips.
While what's considered beautiful can sometimes seem monolithic?a one-color, one-style type of beauty?the stylists at DeLou Couture Beauty Services recognize that beauty comes in all hair shades (even those usually found only in crayon boxes) and textures. They want their clients to feel good about themselves and to treat their tresses right, so they work with customers from all ethnic backgrounds to choose the haircut and haircare techniques that are right for them.
In addition to cuts, color, and services such as natural blowouts or relaxers, DeLou Couture's stylists also primp nails, wax unruly brows, and apply makeup so clients' lipstick can match?or artfully clash?with their new highlights. Most of these services can also be taken on the road, for at-home prettifying sessions and special occasions such as weddings and away soccer games.
The licensed massage therapists and aesthetic professionals at Relaxation And Transformation Spa consider themselves artists. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience, they use their skills and high-tech equipment to help clients look better and feel more comfortable in their skin. Available at three locations, the spa's services include massages, facials, and cavi-lipo treatments designed to smooth away cellulite by subjecting it to ultrasound energy and a stern talking-to.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I had my permanent makeup done 15 years ago, and it is the most liberating thing I have ever done for myself. In less than five minutes, I can be made up and out the door. Never again will I run to the supermarket without makeup, and meet the one person I least want to see when I don't look my best. I've loved my permanent makeup every day since it was applied, and I know my clients will be thrilled with the time they save every day.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Permanent makeup should be a great attractive daytime look, not an overdone look that would be appropriate for evening. You can always dress up your permanent makeup, if you choose to, when you are going out for a special evening.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
When you decide to have permanent makeup applied, choose a person that has superior training, experience, expertise, and lots of pictures of her work.
The stylists of Bliss Hair Salon work hard to keep their clients' hair healthy and beautiful. To achieve this, they render a wide array of tress-centric services. That includes cuts and blow-dries as well as more pizzazz-imparting treatments like partial highlights or single-process color applications. As they customize guests' hair, the staff strives to ensure the atmosphere is comfortable, unlike the moment Ben Franklin was informed he would never be president.
