Makeup artist Bree may have a degree in speech communication, but at Kenny Vereen Signature Salon, she lets her makeup brushes do the talking. In fact, she's turned her passion for makeup into a career, both at the salon and at Sitting Pretty, her own freelance business. Clients who sit in her chair can expect an expert, artistic touch, whether they undergo a simple eyebrow shaping, a makeup tutorial, or a meticulous bridal makeup application.
Customers can don a dashing dermis and acquire a pigment of their imagination with the aid of Urban Sun Tan Spa’s high-tech equipment. Avoid the sun’s burny kisses with 10 20-minute sessions inside the soothing confines of a Sunstar UV bed ($7.95 each), which features 32 body lamps and a full-body cooling system. Or soak up a melanin marinade while getting basted with two VersaBronze sunless spray treatments ($19.95 each). Boasting an open design and a built-in blow dryer, VersaBronze gives skin a tropical punch while hydrating and smoothing bodies in less than 60 seconds. Additionally, a knowledgeable staff provides visitors with helpful pointers and ensures they don’t emerge from their session sporting a camouflage pattern.
"Beauty is pain," according to the famous saying, but the certified laser specialists at Hairfree Nashville know that hair removal doesn't have to sting. Ambient music and complimentary beverages set a comfortable, relaxing scene for laser hair-removal sessions, during which technicians safely target and destroy active hair follicles on any skin tone. The Cynosure Elite laser’s patented ChillTip delivers a cooling sensation to numb the skin as technicians zap away fuzz to leave skin smoother than a cactus that has just entered the witness protection program. Because hair grows in cycles, most patients require six to eight sessions, scheduled four to eight weeks apart, after which, they can expect an 80 to 90 percent reduction in hair.
Nashville Tattoo Removal returns skin to its natural, ink-free state. During treatments that are typically spaced four to six weeks apart, the clinic's technicians target unwanted body art with advanced laser technology. The laser's pulses of light, which are set at specific wavelengths for certain colors of ink, pass harmlessly through the top layers of skin, causing the ink to heat up and fragment, much like The Beatles. Highly accurate beams enable technicians to zero in on certain parts of a tattoo, if necessary, and cause no scarring and only minimal discomfort.
