To the staffers at Highland Spa, each of their services is a way to make a client feel special. Unlike a sinking ship’s rescue boat, they welcome men, women, and children alike to indulge in luxurious mani-pedis, hydrating oxygen facials, or waxing treatments. The spa also houses a fleet of lasers that smoothes wrinkles and softens the appearance of body hair in a cozy, calm atmosphere.
Beth Aleksa, a busy mother of four, first turned to permanent makeup to cut down on the time she spent getting ready in the morning, and later decided to lend her Technicolor savvy to others via A Fine Line Permanent Cosmetics. Beth and fellow permanent-makeup artist Bill Moreland use an intradermal pigmentation process to tuck natural pigments of color into the dermis, making sparse eyebrows appear fuller and more defined without pencil or spray paint, and subtly accenting eyes. They further enhance faces with permanent makeup for lips, can cover stretch marks, and also offers long-lasting eyelash extensions in a range of lengths.
Executive Smiles' cosmetic technicians grant their clients a full-body glow with teeth whitening, spray tans, and glitter spray within their nook at the Firewheel Salon. Executive Smiles employs two different whitening products, using the one best-suited to remove a client's stains, or both if that will produce the best results. For a boost to the rest of the body, their FDA-approved, DHA-based spray tans last 5–10 days when combined with exfoliation and moisturizing lotion treatments. Glitter sprays can also be added to tanning sessions to leave a glimmer with super-fine mica.

The experts at Your Lash Chance! work in the world of Hollywood-style drama and beauty. As makeup artists, they create Hollywood-ready looks with one of the most expressive features: the eyelash. Once they have elongated, volumized, and curved lashes, client’s eyes are ready to coyly bat at dates or flirtatious movie cameras. Customers can select one of three eyelash-extension intensities before the professionals adhere single strands of silk lashes to natural ones with a waterproof adhesive. The strands shed along with natural lashes, which means that the extensions typically last up to four weeks.
