Karen Wright uses Nexus products to style all types of hair. She tends to damaged strands with conditioning treatments and adds dimension with streaks of color. Her haircuts are stylish, meticulous, and designed to enhance facial features without the use of neon highlighter pens.
The sound of water bubbling in foot basins accompanies the chatter of clients as experienced nail technicians perform mani-pedis at Pamper Nails. Here, each nail service is tailored to the customer’s specifications, and can result in a range of outcomes from classic french manicures to less classic french manicures featuring neon pink tips that add exclamation points to your sign language.
Tara Walker leads her team of stylists by example. Even though she's the owner of Creative Cutz, she still works there full time by sculpting 'dos alongside them. For everything from taming fly-aways to setting up-dos, they use products by brands such as Joico and Deva Curls. They also streak locks with bold new hues from Pravana's ChromaSilk Vivids line. These colors come in 11 different avant-garde shades that range from hot pink and violet to the hue of a blue jay after it swims in red paint.
Urban Beauty Supply stocks clients’ beauty cabinets with a bounty of popular and hard-to-find beauty products, including shampoos, styling tools, hair extensions, wigs, and makeup. Born from such product lines as Kinky-Curly, Bobbi Boss, and KeraCare, Urban Beauty’s merchandise aids in hair restoration, lengthening, and cleansing. Dread Head products help customers build their own knotted locks, while Curls products attract positive attention instead of negatively charged balloons with frizz-reducing organic ingredients and exotic oils.
Coloroom's savvy stylists work with customers to snip hair into edgy razor cuts or classic bobs, and bring a smoother smile to faces. Posttrim, help locks gleam with a set of highlights, creating subtle or dramatic contrasts and underlining points that are likely to be on an exam. As the color solution sets in, a skincare expert will use cotton to gently swab the face with a glycolic-peel solution. For 15 minutes, the exfoliant will work its way into the surface, sloughing off dead cells that impede the body's natural Lite-Brite glow, which can shine on for three weeks after treatment. Beauty seekers can expect their stay to last roughly two hours.
During a 36-year career in aesthetics, Diva Lashes' Patricia has developed an affinity for beauty techniques that require absolute precision. Patricia is board-certified in micro pigmentation, or the art of permanent makeup, and relies upon a digital tattoo machine to quickly and accurately render the texture of eyebrow hair or line an eye with minimal discomfort. Many styles of eyelash extensions similarly reflect her enjoyment of meticulous handwork, as each tendril must be adhered one-by-one in order for it to blend in with the natural lash line and hang on for up to three months without the encouragement of a kitten simultaneously dangling from the follicles. Over the past two decades, Patricia has honed her ability for evaluating her client's skin, and now creates custom refresher courses with SkinCeuticals products, vitamin C serums, and facial peels. She shares her decades of expertise and passion for beauty through the American Cancer Society's Look Good…Feel Better program, which connects oncology patients with aestheticians.
