Certified aesthetician Sheri Muscarella pampers visages and exfoliates skin at Lushka Organic Skincare Studio. The microdermabrasion gently abrades the face, neck, and décolletage with aluminum-oxide crystals, removing dead skin cells to reduce the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and age spots and reveal the face's vibrant underground youth scene. The Signature facial employs a custom cocktail of imported Éminence Organic Skin Care products from Hungary, with each treatment tailored to suit the client's skin type and face genre. Gentle facial massage stimulates circulation with or without steam depending on skin type, along with an enzyme mask, accompanied by a warm-mitt hand massage. After the technician removes the mask, she applies rejuvenating serums and lotions to burnish the face to a healthy glow.
At Roy's Straight Edge, a veteran-owned barbershop with a vintage aesthetic, stylists keep men looking well-groomed with skillful haircuts and close shaves. Depending on each patron's preferences, they may trim hair with scissors, shave it into a fade, or clip it into a sophisticated Caesar cut.
The barbershop's stylists take care to eradicate stubble during straight razor shave sessions, but they also work to keep skin smooth and not irritated. That's why they apply rich lather and layer on towels that are infused with soothing aloe, vitamins A, D, and E, and refreshing herbal extracts. In the waiting room, visitors can sip complimentary beverages and watch TV.
