Certified in microcurrent treatment, LED photo rejuvenation, and MediClinical spa peels, Takesia LoRusso performs facials and deep-cleansing body treatments to revitalize skin. In facial and body waxing services, she uses warm wax to lift out hair by the roots. During facials, she cleanses pores and massages face muscles until they're relaxed and glowing. In body treatments, LoRusso uses a collection of salts and essential oils to exfoliate hands and feet, removing dead skin cells and patches of wet cement. Most of the products she uses are organic, natural, or handmade.
Heady aromatherapy scents fill the air within Pretty Faces Skincare Studio’s intimate and inviting spa suite. The appointment-only studio allows guests to fully indulge in their pampering desires, from facials and peels at the hands of licensed aestheticians to laser treatments, waxes, and massages. The skin-savvy team uses professional, medical-grade products during services, eschewing antiquated means of exfoliating facial skin, such as rubbing cheeks against an old oak tree.
The licensed stylists and aestheticians at Beauty Secret Salon may have a few trade secrets up their sleeves, but there's one thing they never try to hide: their clients' natural beauty. They merely emphasize features that are already stunning with fashion-forward haircuts, keratin straightening treatments, and spa services that include facials, mani-pedis, and eyebrow threading. Clients regularly stop in to have their legs waxed, only to stay and get a henna tattoo of a floral design or a particularly complex home address.
Lidia Mosquera, the medical aesthetician behind Med Therapeutic Skin Care Day Spa, believes that her education never stops. Though she's been in the industry for more than 25 years, she still commits herself to staying on top of the latest beauty practices and procedures, even traveling to learn about breakthroughs made outside of the U.S. or in the galley of a Boeing Dreamliner. At her day spa, she offers massages, body wraps, laser hair removal, facials, and other services that showcase her cutting edge expertise. Her microcurrent, endermologie, and cavitation treatments help contour cellulite in problem areas, and her staff also enhance massages with aromas of sage and tequila that impart the natural healing effects of the agave plant.
By performing services with skill and finesse, Siggers Hairdressers' trend-wise stylists travel the world to stay up-to-date with fashion capitals’ latest trends and maintain Siggers' Intercoiffure membership for highly prized salons since 1977. When they aren't cutting, tinting, and straightening coifs, the team members sculpt elegant updos for weddings and primp hands and feet with mani-pedis. Siggers also specializes in balayage, a highlighting method that creates more natural-looking sun-kissed streaks. Stylists accomplish this look by painting each highlight by hand, moving from base to tip in a sweeping motion borrowed from Van Gogh's self portraits. Clients longing to boost their beauty quotient further can take makeup lessons with Suni, a makeup artist and educator who has spent 25 years working with celebrities and whose resumé boasts features on commercials, films, magazines, and TV’s Extreme Makeover.
