Pamela's of Monroe is a boudoir boutique that's part shop, part salon, and part fitness studio. Nail technicians and aestheticians help visitors get tanned, manicured, and made up, while exercise classes beautify from the inside out. Candles, costumes, and romantic accoutrements outfit shoppers with everything they and their partners might need for a night in. For a night out, bachelorette and birthday parties descend upon Pamela's to make glamorous memories.
A team of skillful hairdressers and massage therapists dwells behind Studio U Salon & Spa's light-brick façade, where a bright purple sign welcomes patrons to a world in which beauty services abound. Trained stylists detach split ends, brighten crowns with highlights, and add bouncy layers to hairdos to help patrons update their looks before starting a new job or ending a relationship with a twin. Skin treatments include waxes and a variety of massage modalities help to keep bodies in a state of relaxation, much like a samurai warrior in battle. Pedicures and manicures cloak nails in vibrant colors, and acrylics keep shy keratin sheets under wraps.
The team at Total Tranquility Salon has yet to see the head of hair they couldn't beautify. A multicultural salon, the team utilizes their versatility and experience to stylize luscious curls, glossy straight, and natural corn rows, with or without hair added. During shampoo, color, and straightening services, staffers sprinkle professional salon products—such as Keune, Moroccanoil, and Black 15 in 1—to help keep locks loaded with moisture and body.
The Esthetic Engineer owner Tiffany Schoefield understands the stressors of the 9-to-5 world. After she ran a ghostwriting business and managed political campaigns, her career took an about-face when she realized she was more interested in slowing down to appreciate life than in speeding it up. It was then that Tiffany turned to what has become her true calling—skincare—and she now devotes herself to helping her clients find their own quiet reprieves from daily life in her inviting spa.
For more than 15 years, Tiffany has trained in some of the skincare industry’s most trusted brands, including Aveda and SkinCeuticals. The spa’s licensed aestheticians help clients improve their skin’s appearance with treatments that include microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials with a variety of trusted skincare brands, including Éminence Organic Skin Care and Glo Therapeutics. Among the center’s many specialties are body waxing and makeovers, during which artists apply lash extensions, tint brows, or apply full makeup. Tiffany’s philosophy that her spa is an oasis for self-care and rejuvenation stands at the forefront throughout all of her services, and her staff emphasizes making clients happy with personalized attention and treatments.
Synergy Salon owner Quy has an artist's eye when it comes to hair—and a nine-step process to guide her palette. Like a sculptor teasing a form from clay or stone, she uses her tools to reveal flattering styles for locks of any texture, and she follows Synergy's nine detailed steps to achieve rich, shimmering color. As the shop’s master hair designer and color specialist, she leads an accomplished team of stylists, including Aveda Institute graduates. Together, they create classic and dramatic looks using Redken and organic Eufora color or calm frizzy locks with Brazilian keratin treatments. Their lengthy menu of services also includes facial waxing, eyebrow threading, and eyelash extensions.
One by one, Dream Lash Studio's aesthetician Jasna Bhayani applies synthetic strands to individual eyelashes. As she applies each, lashes seem fuller, darker, and longer, until she's concluded. The result: up to 100 individual lash extensions, applied so seamlessly that they appear natural and temporarily eliminate the need for mascara.
