As a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, Elizabeth St. John-Hall has what it takes to make skin shine. When working with clients, she typically takes a holistic approach to revamping their skin, administering the treatments and showing them the beneficial nutrition and lifestyle changes that will help them achieve their desired looks. To that end, all of her facials, peels, and body treatments can be tailored to meet specific skincare needs. Her makeup applications complete the picture.
The professionals at Pure Aesthetics & Skin Care rejuvenate complexions with a range of skin treatments, employing Environ Skin Care products infused with vitamins and antioxidants. During facials, aestheticians target signs of aging or concerns specific to teens, such as acne or lips that are chapped from blowing kisses to Justin Bieber posters. Technicians resurface skin and promote deep exfoliation with peels made from pumpkin or papaya enzymes or glycolic or lactic acid. The skincare pros also wax away unwanted hair to groom areas including eyebrows, bikini lines, and legs.
Affordable haircare—stat! Unlike a costly trip to the real emergency room, a visit to Hair ER finds stylists who aim to keep style budget-friendly by adhering to a simple mantra: "You don't have to go broke to be beautiful." Armed with more than 20 years of experience, they perform advanced beauty treatments such as weaves, hydration treatments, silk presses, color, and precision cuts. Chemical peels and makeup applications keep the face looking healthy and bright, whereas manicures and pedicures make nails shiny and colorful, as nature intended.
Brows and lashes, welcome to your happy place. It's called Lush Threading & Spa, and it's home to a team of spa technicians who specialize in everything from brow tinting to eyelash extensions. But the beauty possibilities don't end there: full-face threading and waxing are also available, along with herbal facials and hairstyling services.
Ruby Beauty Center lends Eastern flair to salon and spa services that beautify hands, feet, hair, and skin. Henna imbues manes with rich auburn tones ($25+) or, during mendhi sessions, dapples hands with intricate designs of flowers, leaves, and bar-exam answers ($7+ per hand). Staffers daub away unwelcome whiskers from underarms with powerful wax ($7) or gently twist free visage vines with threading ($20 for full face). A thermo herb facial ($55) undoes the effects of tense muscles and gorgon-staring contests by evacuating pores with warmth and salving skin with botanical ingredients.
