People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
The entire spa is quiet and calming, and the decor is simple and soothing. Because we are located on the second floor, we have a private and secluded ambiance.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Covering skin imperfections, such as black heads, breakouts and skin lesions, with lots of make up. To me, healthy and radiant skin is more beautiful than anything else. Start taking care of your skin instead of covering it up.
How did you get started in the industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I've always been interested in health, beauty, and well-being, but I studied and worked in different fields for long time. I found out that this is the industry that could integrate all the subjects I'm passionate about. Now I love and enjoy what I am doing.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
As we say, "beauty comes from within." Adding a positive attitude in to our daily routine makes everything easier. Start your day with good intentions and positive thoughts, and let your inner beauty shine through your skin. Be the first one who smiles, because "when you smile at the world, the whole world smiles back."
According to Tricia Hetherington, founder of The Pretty Kitty, the perfect Brazilian wax requires a specific technique that she's developed herself. That's why she personally trains each one of her aestheticians—no simple task, considering that she operates locations in California, Nevada, Texas, and New Jersey—to remove hair using soft wax formulated for sensitive skin. The process takes fewer than 15 minutes, and frees clients to wear the skimpiest of swimsuits and lingerie.
A chandelier casts a glow over the pink-toned interior of the newly opened Montclair location, where a wall stencil depicts a feline casting a sidelong glance. Within treatment rooms, aestheticians wax men's and women's bodies, leaving behind smooth, clean expanses of skin. Hygiene is of the utmost importance to The Pretty Kitty's specialists, who never double dip waxing sticks, reuse wax, or procure it from Madame Tussaud's castoff sculptures.
Hair follicles move through cycles of growth, transition, and rest. Their growth period is known as the anagen phase and hair growth is Anagen Hair Solutions? specialty. Its technicians perform FDA-approved low-level-laser therapy sessions, utilizing cool light from 165 diode lasers that increase blood supply to the scalp, thereby stimulating hair regrowth. The team also draws on FDA-approved Mediceuticals products to treat a range of scalp and skin disorders, which have been proven more effective than traditional methods such as donning a top hat.
Elite Hair Studio and Spa's staffers travel to New York, LA, London, and Paris for frequent training, returning to the studio with newly acquired skills to better meet client needs during custom services. The stylists begin treatments with a complimentary consultation to determine the cut angles that will flatter cheekbones or what blend of hair color will accentuate complexion, eye color, or the necklace that can't be removed due to a curse. Through signature facials, the aestheticians evict blemishes, and nail techs pamper long-forgotten cuticles before overshadowing them with gleaming polish. Before treatments, the staff directs guests to recumbent leather chairs flanked by wood-framed mirrors and furnishes each visitor with cucumber-infused water.
