At Shimmer Airbrushing & Esthetics, tans don't come from sun exposure—they come from a handheld airbrushing gun. The custom, organic tans are applied with the MaxiMist XL gun and take less than five minutes. And because they are applied by hand, they hug the contours of the body better than spray tans applied via tanning booth or garden hose. The studio complements its natural-looking tans with assorted facials using Dermalogica products, airbrushes make-up, and eyelash extensions that render mascara obsolete.
America, the resident cosmetologist at Zen Salon, has trained in beauty techniques all over the world, from Argentina, Mexico, and Spain to Japan and Korea. She is licensed in permanent makeup and expertly applies eyeliner, lip liner, and eyebrow filler that stays put through showering or falling asleep in a sweat lodge. Other services at the salon include haircuts and mani-pedis with a paraffin dip.
The staff at Salon Cybele’ boasts 10 members, including a makeup artist, a lash specialist, a massage therapist, and enough skilled stylists to form a complete circle around an ungroomed celebrity on the red carpet. They add panache to hair and nails as well as refresh the skin during facials, waxing, and makeup applications. Stylist Shena adds length to hair and eyelashes with her signature extensions, which have nothing to do with taking 40 minutes to sign for a package. Salon Cybele'’s staff takes advantage of an array of products, including Unite, Moroccanoil, Hairdreams, and Dermalogica.
The marble-patterned side tables and gilded footbaths make Kenmore Happy Nails' pedicure chairs truly throne-like.

They also specialize in permanent makeup, filling in lip lines and eyebrows.
Calling themselves the Glam Squad, the stylists and makeup artists at Bellissimo Beauty Bar use products such as Neuma shampoos and conditioners and Hairdreams hair extensions to sculpt the kinds of looks you'd see on the Bangstyle image community. The studio's fun, quirky décor matches the staff's sensibility, blending modern and vintage furnishings with funky touches, such as contrasting upholstery patterns and styling stations setup on the ceiling.
TLC Skin Care Clinic employs two women with extensive credentials. Stephanie Negrete, a registered nurse and licensed aesthetician, is a US Army veteran who served in intensive care units during her service.
