Pamela Golightly was "green" before it was cool. The natural nail-care specialist has long been dedicated to eco-friendly practices since she began her career in 1986, ?servicing the community for more than 28 years? and utilizing paper wraps instead of fiberglass wraps and filing nails by hand rather than relying on electric files or coal-guzzling robots. Her thoughtful, all-natural approach to nail care has resulted in a slew of dedicated return customers. Unlike other processes that depend on heavy chemical use, her organic approach results in zero incidents of nail damage, mold, or adverse reactions from allergy-prone cuticles. Pamela's natural approach helps nail services last up to two weeks. This same awareness carries over into her community endeavors, including her frequent contributions to local schools and nonprofit organizations.
For nearly a decade, the skincare professionals at Lan’s Skin Care and Health Spa have maintained a relaxing haven that stimulates the body's capacity to heal. With each service, they attend to emotional and physical needs, adhering to the belief that mind, body, and spirit are as inextricably linked as peanut butter and the roof of your mouth. Aestheticians ease the mind with quiet treatment rooms, and relax the body by punctuating facials with hand, foot, and shoulder massages. Together, these efforts uplift the spirit and foster overall wellness.
Acne treatments and deep-skin-cleaning services dot the menu alongside permanent-makeup applications that enhance natural features. Lending equal credence to the areas beneath the neck, the specialists perform body wraps and offer steam and sauna therapy.
A trip to Elite Hair & Skin is potentially a multilingual experience: technicians can comprehend the phrases ''I want to look dashing'' and ''Please release the bees from my hair'' in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, and Russian. Staffers trim the locks of men, women, and children, but they also remove hair in other ways—waxing uproots bristles from such areas as women’s bikini regions and men’s full backs, and threading creates precise eyebrow shapes simply by rolling cotton threads across the brow.
Located in Lafayette, Kalpana Threading is a professional threading-only beauty salon, with its expert aestheticians practicing a centuries-old hair-removal technique to make skin sleek and smooth. Clients sit back in the salon's cushy leather chairs as an aesthetician runs twists of fine cotton thread along the eyebrows and other facial features, catching several hairs at once in the thread. Done rapidly, threading is an efficient hair-removal technique, and clients at Kalpana Threading can also have their upper lip, chin, cheeks, and foreheads threaded at this soothing beauty spot.
At A Place for Your Face, specialist Franchesca Scalise recognizes that different skin types require different care.

The services she provides include microdermabrasion with antioxidants and topical nutrients, acid-free peels, and ultrasound facials that use sound waves to stimulate collagen production without revealing any lucrative ideas that may be blooming inside the client’s head.
