Thousands of manes have passed through Sai’s fingers during her career as a professional stylist. She calms unruly strands with precision haircuts and Brazilian blowouts, and highlights locks with hues that complement face-skin. When not tending to the tresses of her clients, Sai unloads her hair and makeup wisdoms while teaching classes in LA or during elevator trips of more than five floors.
At The Wax Parlor, staffers spend their entire day primarily focused on only one thing: waxing. While whisking away hair on the body or face during one of their services, they uphold rigid sanitary standards, never double dipping or flat-out licking a wax stick once they?ve used it. They also stock their salon and online boutique with numbing cream for those looking to diminish as much discomfort as possible.
The only non-waxing service they offer is airbrush tanning, which can put the finishing touch on a new, hair-free look.
Pazazz Nails blends industrial and luxurious touches in its design aesthetic. Sheer curtains cascade from the exposed ductwork to the Spanish-tiled floor. Raw-edged mirrors in oblong shapes rest against faux-marble walls. A row of oversize pedicure chairs welcomes patrons to relax as their toenails are filed, buffed, and covered in nail polish. At manicure stations, fingernails painted in Shellac polish find protection against scratches from washing dishes or petting a porcupine.
Permanent-makeup artist Svetlana understands her clients might be wary of committing to one default look, which is why she does what she can to ease their anxieties. Before each treatment, she holds an initial consultation and test run with conventional cosmetics, ensuring that the end result matches the desires of her subject. Once clients feel confident enough to move forward, Svetlana chooses micropigments that work with their eye, skin, and hair colors, then uses the pigments to line the eyes, lips, and brows. Like a legal pad full of questions to ask a first date, Svetlana is good at preventing discomfort; she applies a topical anesthetic before the treatment.
Though Permanent Makeup by Svetlana sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
You can get a trendy cut at Studio M Hair Design no problem, but after all that's only part of what it takes to get your hair to look its best.
