Don't let the impressive lines of pedicure chairs fool you––Bella Spatique tends to more than just the toes. Facials, massages, waxing, and eyelash extensions help clients to meet aesthetic goals that go beyond their hands and feet. Using products from Guinot and Glymed, aestheticians perform european, teen, and anti-aging facials that leave the skin as fresh as a salad eaten directly from your garden in the middle of the night. The nail care, though, is nothing to sniff at, with a certified Master Pedicurist on hand to assist clients living with diabetic foot conditions, and complimentary client boxes store implements in a medical-grade autoclave until their next visit.
Every time Linda Dang performs a facial, she tweaks her method slightly to account for the differences in individual skin types. A licensed medical aesthetician with more than 14 years expertise in anti-aging skincare, she offers more than a dozen facial treatments, including microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, dermaculture Iontophoresis, and chemical peels. The variety of treatments ensures that she can offer her clients options for all skin types when they want to combat acne, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, or overexposure to the sun. She also offers other cosmetic services, including permanent-makeup applications, micropigmentation, eyebrow tinting, and mole removal. Semipermanent eyelash extensions elongate natural lashes to eliminate the need for mascara and eyelash curlers, and can last indefinitely with proper home care and regular touch-ups.
The work of Divine Cre8ions Hair & Makeup Studio's founder has appeared on The Real Housewives of DC, the BET channel, and a Mike Jones film. Nyoka, an extensively trained hairdresser and makeup artist, has earned praise and national magazine spots solely for her behind-the-scenes work, which she brings to the styling chairs of her salon. There, she grants her clients the same attention and precision she practices when working on a high-profile rapper or TV personality.
Nyoka tends to hair with professional cuts, sew-in hair enhancements, and coloring treatments for clients or wedding parties. As a makeup artist for the MAC Cosmetics line, she also dolls up faces with a steady hand and keen eye for flair and beauty. She applies the training she received from celebrity makeup artist Toni Acey, who worked on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, to add flair to facial features with airbrush makeup services.
Under the medical direction of Dr. David Braunreiter, the staff at You Only Younger provide skincare and beauty-enhancement services using only medically proven products. Licensed aestheticians Donna and Sheila perform skin-moisturizing facials to combat blemishes and signs of aging. Board-certified Kami Owen, a nurse practitioner, administers injections of dermal fillers such as Botox to erase fine lines. With technology such as the micro laser peel, the team can also remove outermost layers of skin to exfoliate with absolute precision ranging from 6 to 50 microns per treatment. Laser services also extend to tattoo and hair removal as well as fading stretch marks and spider veins that don’t look as cool as Spider-Man’s. To treat cellulite and loose skin on thighs, arms, and chins, they use The Reaction by Viora, a system featured on The Doctors.
Imagine losing all of your hair—what would that do to your self-confidence and quality of life? With the belief that hair is much more than a fashion accessory, Untourage Salon Retreat owner Tanissa Carmon uses custom-fitted cranial hair prostheses to help clients to feel good about their appearance when dealing with hair loss, whether due to illness or heredity.
This dedication to giving people peace of mind also shows in Tanissa's other salon services, which range from stylish cuts to smoothing keratin treatments to seamless extensions—all of which begin with a complimentary consultation to determine each client's preferred look and salon nickname. As clients settle into cozy styling chairs, the 800-square-foot space reverberates with the sounds of experienced stylists snipping, smoothing, and lengthening 'dos backed by a soundtrack of instrumental jazz music.
At LongTimeLiner & Lash Studio, a team of beauty experts goes to work touching up faces and bodies using seven different types of facials, as well as airbrush tanning, waxing, and semipermanent makeup. The spa's menu also encompasses powerful microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels, which go even deeper to root out wrinkles, fine lines, and shrubbery growing in crevices under the cheekbones.
