Some might call Shanna Bustichi Peuse a perfectionist, but she’s not complaining. Results matter to this licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, who has a passion for creating complexions that look, feel, and sound as smooth and youthful as a newborn saxophone. Working independently in the Look Salon Boutique & Spa, Shanna begins most appointments with a brief consultation, in which she carefully analyzes the skin and teaches clients how to unlock their inner beauty at home. Her facials nourish pores with ingredients such as collagen and vitamin C, and corrective treatments fight wrinkles and blemishes with retinol, lactic acid, and LED lights. A makeup kit stocked with quality creams and powders from Jane Iredale, Stila, Mac, and Tarte also serves her talented hands as she designs stunning day-to-evening faces and special-occasion looks that have graced brides, fashion shows, photo shoots, and the occasional baseball card.
Aesthetician Danielle Kriege long believed in the transformative power of holistic bodywork and medicine. Her interest in whole-body treatments and alternative skincare led to her training as a master reiki therapist, and she continues to hone her cross-disciplinary expertise as the owner of White Lotus Wellness Center.
Now, Danielle bolsters the mental and physical tranquility of her clients with treatments for the body and skin. Detoxifying herbal body wraps and ionic foot baths evict pent-up poisons from their bodily hiding places, and an infrared-sauna treatment helps rid the body of cellulite. Her reiki sessions break up traffic jams in the body?s energy pathways, targeting pressure points along the feet that correspond to systems throughout the body.
In addition to healing inner trouble spots, Danielle also targets outer issues with custom beauty treatments. Custom facials and skin peels exfoliate the body?s all-important outer layer, and gentle brow-tinting and facial waxing treatments rein in unruly hair around the face's most expressive areas. In addition to her everyday service, Danielle helps clients prep for their biggest moments with bridal and event makeup packages.
Vanity Skin Care's owner and chief aesthetician gifts women with a break from the world, and the chance to return to it feeling beautiful. She maintains a clean, peaceful spa, without a speck of dust to distract from her clients during treatments. There, she soothes skin with an array of facials and peels that reduce the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and acne. She also provides an array of waxing services to remove extra hair from faces and limbs where it could distract people while they are driving or turning cartwheels down the street.
Prior to starting her very own studio in 2013, Michelle Kelly climbed the spa ranks from apprentice to master aesthetician and became well versed in skin's the many conditions and changes. She also deepened her understanding of the muscular system and relaxation by becoming certified as a massage therapist. Now she incorporates soothing kneads into many of her services, lending an extra therapeutic element to her facials and back treatments. She also uses professional Dermalogica and Image Skincare products, as well as holistic aromatherapy oils and pharmaceutical-grade peels.
