Tending to client's hair and skin, the stylists and aestheticians of Zara Threading & Beauty Salon wield products from the likes of Crew, Dermalogica, and Paul Mitchell. Inside the quaint studio, stylists cleanse coifs before clipping, coloring, and styling hair into a style based on that of a celebrity or a trending wig. Zara also offers facial threading, eyelash extensions, and a variety of facials.
“Touching lives by creating changes in a person’s appearance” became the guiding principle of MaryStella Studio’s eponymous owner after helping her daughter overcome cystic acne. For Mary, that episode illuminated the profound effect that effective skincare can have on a person. She was so impressed with her daughter’s improved skin—as well as with the confidence and self-esteem it yielded—that she began to explore the world of aesthetics as a viable career.
Mary’s determination to help others through skincare and wellness treatments finally led her to open MaryStella Studio, a tranquil sanctuary that aims to rejuvenate and revitalize bodies from the inside out. Whether a nourishing facial or lash tinting, each of the studio’s treatments accounts for your individual skincare history and concerns that dead skin receive a proper eulogy. Mary relies on beautifying product lines such as PCA Skin—with its blend of peptides, antioxidants and botanicals—as well as advanced anti-aging equipment such as a noncrystal microdermabrasion system.
Microdermabrasion treatments are quick, 35–45-minute procedures that uses a diamond-tipped wand to abrade the top layers of skin and polish the dermis hiding beneath. The exfoliating powers reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and light scarring, while eliminating sun damage and dry skin and evening out skin tone and texture. Using a wand that operates on pneumatic principles similar to the Super Soaker, your aesthetician will gently blast away blemishes and buff your face to a healthy, happy hue. At the same time, deceased skin and makeup residue will be given a proper burial at the bottom of a vacuum. Come treatment's end, the skin will have a refreshed, healthy glow, proudly displaying the younger skin that had been patiently waiting to see the light of day.
The sun never really sets at Summertime Tanning. Regardless of the season, the salon keeps clients' skin looking healthily and naturally bronzed with the help of lie-down and standup equipment. High-pressure tanning beds and a UV-free Mystic Tan system can help develop an even base or imbue skin with the dramatic, sun-kissed look of a solar-panel-repair technician. The staff also stocks up on tanning lotions from popular brands such as Australian Gold and Designer Skin.
At Vendesi Beauty & Wellness Center, individually tailored facials cater to a wide range of skin concerns, treating faces in need of firming, hydrating, exfoliating, and more. The expansive skincare menu also includes microdermabrasion, back exfoliating treatments, and vitamin-C-infused exfoliation. But this beauty and wellness center offers much more than just skincare: other services include massages, body wraps, and spray tanning, to name a few.
