Le Cachet Lounge's experienced aestheticians beautify both faces and bodies with eyelash extensions and microdermabrasion facials as well as airbrush tanning, full-body waxing, and makeup services. They use top products such as Xtreme Lashes, which can add curve, length, and thickness to eyelashes before modeling gigs or visits to a Jumbotron-operator convention. Knowledge from Glo-Mineral Makeup certifications shines during makeup applications, and elixirs infused with vitamin C, salicylic acids, or moisturizers give strength to facial treatments.
Grace Designs & Esthetics’ skincare professionals upgrade the health and look of skin with face and body treatments performed inside a newly renovated space adorned with modern accents. While the spa’s makeup artists expertly camouflage imperfections, aestheticians work to correct their underlying causes with facials that rehabilitate dry, aging, or smart-mouthing skin.
Each of the styling stations at Lulu Salon and Spa comes equipped with its own shampoo bowl and ample counter space for products and styling tools. It?s here that stylist Amber Kelley works her magic, cutting and coloring hair underneath the salon?s bright, overhead lights. For waxing services, she exclusively uses soft waxes for sensitive areas such as the face.
To learn how to shampoo after you leave the salon, check out Groupon?s look at what shampoo really does.
Our follicles constantly produce a natural oil, known as sebum, that moisturizes and protects hair. Over time, sebum starts to build up, leaving hair with that familiar greasy feeling. Shampoo works by stripping out sebum using a surfactant, which clings to small clumps of the oil before water rinses the globs away, along with any dirt, dead skin cells, or confetti scraps left in the hair. Although surfactants are shampoo's main active ingredient, most products also feature compounds to fight static, thwart mold and bacteria, and impart a sweet, pleasing scent. Most shampoos also contain lathering agents, although lather has no practical cleansing effect?customers have simply come to expect it.
In a span of less than 100 years, Americans went from washing their hair once a month to lathering up almost daily. Spurred mostly by ad campaigns of the mid-20th century, the trend of regular shampooing has taken a toll on our collective tresses. According to dermatologists, shampooing your hair too often can dry it out, causing the glands to compensate by secreting even more sebum. Experts recommend reaching for the shampoo bottle only two or three times each week.
Kids may be picky about eating vegetables but they can be even pickier about the hairstyle they wear. That’s why Sugar & Spice Kids Salon—voted Best Hair Salon 2010 by Nickelodeon’s Parents Connect—focuses solely on performing kid-approved haircuts, updos, mini mani-pedis, and temporary hair-coloring treatments. Bright colors and zebra prints wrap around the salon, where youngsters settle into any of the seven car- and motorcycle-covered barber chairs.
Stylists take before and after pictures of toddlers getting their first haircuts, and teach tweens healthy skincare habits during facials. They also oversee spa parties, many of which include a styling with a glitter-colored hair spray and a kid-friendly beauty product kids can take home. All of the Glop, Glam, and Little Green beauty products retailed in Sugar & Spice's adjoining boutique—packed with flashy hair accessories woven from last year’s crush list—are made from organic ingredients that are free of chemicals and parabens.
Skinology Skincare improves the appearance of damaged skin, creating clearer complexions with facials, peels, waxes, and skin tightening treatments. Using Image and CBI Laboratories skincare products to treat live tissue at the cellular level, Skinology Skincare halts skin folds and dermal erosion in the same way that high-tech bungee cords keep the Mississippi River from getting any wider. Standard facials target five different concerns ranging from acne to dryness, and all come with a light massage and steam to evoke relaxation. Customers who require more intensive treatment can opt for hydrafacials, microdermabrasion, or image resurfacing peels, each of which aim to obscure signs of aging. Viora reaction treatments tighten aged skin and treat cellulite in the face, neck, abdomen, and legs, while photoepilation treatments stifle hair growth throughout the body.
