If eyes are the windows to the soul, then aesthetician Amber Gladden is a master curtain designer. As a Dermalogica skincare expert, she thrives at tending to pores, but her favorite facial feature is a lush crop of eyelashes. That's why she founded Bloom Lash Boutique, a beauty shop dedicated to lash enhancement. Here, she can tint them, curl them, or make them extra long, like the train of a dachshund's wedding gown. Her specialty is Xtreme Lashes, semipermanent extensions that give natural lashes a thick, full look. While the client kicks back in a reclining chair, Amber attaches each strand to a single lash, about 1 millimeter from the eyelid. Though this process can last up to two hours, it prevents clumping and promotes fluttering. Each eye receives 60–120 extensions, which require a touchup every two to three weeks.

Idolize Brows & Beauty's threading experts shape and manage facial hair without chemicals or blades.

Tucked inside Charlotte’s Holistic Wellness Center, Lacquer and Wax Beautique uses custom-blended products to personalize its one-on-one services. Guests are welcomed with a cup of tea and a treat provided by a local bakery, before licensed aesthetician and makeup artist Khiana Morton whisks them away for facials that might include herbal steam treatments or crystal tip microdermabrasion. Besides refining skin, Khiana can also add drama to peepers with eyelash extensions or use lash tinting treatments to match lashes to a new hair color or pair of shoes.
Meanwhile, the Beautique’s other pro, Mavis Wilson, concerns herself with nail health. A natural nail care specialist, she's especially good at helping nails recover from past acrylic and gel use.
Inside the private treatment rooms of Miss Brow (A Spa Studio), four trained technicians help clients achieve a neat, groomed appearance with a variety of skin-refining and waxing treatments. Their services span from the tips of extended eyelashes to the newly smooth expanses of waxed legs, ensuring that clients are ready for trips to the beach or the Mata Hari school of seductive espionage. The salon's staple is depilation treatments, with staff trained in both waxing and threading to offer the precision and coverage desired. The shop further accentuates a connection to ancient Eastern beauty techniques with henna applications, which can adorn the hands of brides-to-be or the faces of friends who have fallen asleep in the cozy waiting room.:m]]
