After spending her early years rifling through her mother's makeup bag, owner Martha Sznoluch pursued a career as an aesthetician, working as a skincare adviser for Estée Lauder and a certified laser technician. Drawing on her 13 years of experience in the industry, including postgraduate certifications from The International Dermal Institute in Washington, DC, Martha opened 'Ohana Skincare & Makeup Studio in 2010 to perform services ranging from microdermabrasions to waxing treatments. Martha and her staff wield handpicked skincare products and peels by Skin Therapeutics and Bionet Esthetics when administering custom facials. The expert eyes of the studio's beauty mavens ensure that faces possess the desired natural makeup look in special-occasion makeup sessions, which help a bride's natural beauty shine through showers of rice or an unexpected rain of cornhusks.:m]]
The head-to-toe services offered at Lotus Day Spa all revolve around the same goal: to relax and beautify clients. Facials rid pores of dirt and infuse skin with vitamin C to improve firmness and elasticity. Massage therapists knead knotted muscles so backs aren’t all lumpy, and aestheticians apply flutter-worthy eyelash extensions. Mani-pedis with Shellac polish and nail-art add-ons round out the list of pampering services.
Rocks Blow Dry Bar is a salon with no scissors. Hair clippings have never graced its floors, and its sinks have never touched a drop of hair color. That's because Rocks Blow Dry Bar specializes in one simple, yet essential service: the blow dry. Whether they're there to freshen up for a night on the town or simply bask in the massage-like relaxation of a professional shampoo, visitors to Rocks Blow Dry Bar walk in with languishing locks and emerge in less than an hour with a shiny, tossable style customized to their tastes, whether it's voluminous and curly, stick straight, or a theoretical quantum state between the two. Beyond a standard wash and dry, stylists can add deep-conditioning treatments and soothing scalp massages, and even deck out clients with formal updos and makeup applications for upscale events.
For Tammy D'Eramo, semi-permanent makeup isn't about vanity?it's about self-esteem and confidence for clients who might have difficulty applying makeup themselves. At Advanced Dermagraphics, Inc., she wields a steady hand to perform this intricate service, which she's mastered over more than 12 years in the business. As a licensed master permanent cosmetic practitioner/aesthetician, Tammy complements her makeup services with other clinical treatments: eyelash enhancement, facials, peels, masks, and skin needling, a nonsurgical skin-rejuvenation technique that stokes collagen production to fill wrinkles and camouflage scars naturally.
Long eyelashes can win the attention of suitors, and really long eyelashes can win the attention of fencing partners. Whatever your intention, the certified lash stylists at Eye Deux can manifest the results. The staff specializes in Xtreme lashes—semipermanent extensions that adhere to natural lashes for added volume without messy mascara. Biweekly upkeep services are also available.
Board-certified, state-licensed permanent-makeup artist Donna House tailors her permanent-makeup-application services to each client’s unique coloring, features, and desired look. Using sterile, disposable supplies and custom-blended colors—which conform to CDC and OSHA regulations—House enhances eyes, defines or reshapes eyebrows, and contours lips. To minimize any discomfort, House applies a topical anesthetic before and after each procedure to numb treatment areas against pain and the broken sobs of obsolete makeup brushes.
