Trained technicians apply custom-blended tans by hand while avoiding the lines and streaks that could otherwise arise from applications by automated spray booths or Jackson Pollock proteges. The staff also waxes unwanted body hair and combats dermal issues with anti-aging and acne-blasting facials.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I try to tailor every visit to each specific client and their individual goals and needs. The challenge of ensuring that happens is one of the things I love most [about my job].
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
Using the wrong products. Even if you spend $10 on product instead of $50, there are products that will suite your skin type better than others. Feel free to ask for recommendations.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I fell in love with makeup at a young age while watching my mother and sisters put it on themselves. I did makeup professionally for several years, noticing that too many women would put on makeup to cover up what they considered "problem spots" areas instead of using it to enhance their natural beauty. My "ah-ha" moment was realizing that I could help with the "problem spot" areas and allow women (and men) to feel amazing without feeling like they need to cover anything up.
The walls are watching you––or so it would seem. Framed photos of eyes laden with long, voluminous lashes can be seen throughout each Xtina’s Lash Xtensions' salon. This is the plight of owner Christina Wakulich who decks out eyelid rims with synthetic- and real-mink lash extensions with the help of her highly trained staff. Full sets include range from 45 to 65 lashes per eye, fostering a sultry look for six to eight weeks without the mess of mascara.

While there are many styles of massage to choose from, the licensed massage therapists at Elements Massage blend a medley of kneading techniques to ease away tension. Their four-level approach helps to cater sessions to each individual client. Patrons looking for a light and relaxing massage receive a level 1 massage, whereas those with more muscle tension can opt for the medium pressure of a level 2 or 3, and clients bearing especially tangled muscle fibers or especially heavy jetpacks can find relief with the deeper manipulations and trigger-point work of a level 4.
Great Clips Salon's stylists stay up to date on the latest styles and techniques, snipping and reshaping masses of hair into sleek headpieces worthy of mounting above handsome brows or on the hood of a Cadillac. Clients can walk in any time for the next available appointment, or take advantage of the online check-in system, which queues soon-to-be-styled customers and notifies them when they are next in line. Appointments open with a consultation, in which stylists learn a client's personal style answer burning questions such as the proper number of times to water hair with coca-cola daily. Afterward, stylists bring expertly wielded shears to bear on hairdos, sculpting bold new shapes out of raw keratin. While not included in today's Groupon, Great Clips Salons provides cornucopia of products to keep all hair types nourished and looking their best.
