Elegant minimalism with a quaint touch of flair doesn't just describe the decor at Parasol Beauty Atelier?it's also an apt characterization of the spa's skincare, eyelash, and makeup services.

And it's not all for women and children standing on each others' shoulders under a trench coat; in the Gentlemen's Corner, male clientele can get body waxes and acne-fighting skin treatments.

A facial at Lyna's Skin Care is more than just that. Every exfoliating treatment also includes a complimentary skin analysis and a gentle massage of the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands. With these kinds of add-ons, it’s easy to see why the facial has become one of Lyna’s most popular treatments. Other treatments that enjoy similar popularity include professional makeup applications and eyelash enhancements. The latter adds length to natural lashes with extensions pretested to attract desirable suitors and blow away undesirable suitors with a wink.
Beauty specialist Vimaa Patel opened the original iBar to concentrate on threading, body art, and permanent makeup. Now with four different locations, Vimaa ensures her staff is practiced in the ancient technique of eyebrow threading—gently pruning and shaping brows with cotton strings—by requiring potential team members to have at least two years of experience. The technicians also enhance eyes and brows with permanent-makeup treatments and personalize shoulders, ankles, and calves with temporary body art, such as birds, blossoms, or safe combinations.
iBar's intensive focus on a handful of treatments let the staff master their craft, and customers took notice. Within four years, the beauty haven expanded to four locations, each of which maintains the rigorous quality and boutique ambiance of the original.
Whenever possible, Ciana Salon and Day Spa's staff use natural products, from their Aveda hair-color products to body treatments infused with Dead Sea salts and seaweed. In the salon area, stylists consult with clients to determine the best cut and color to suit their predilections. They then coat manes with Aveda color products packed with sunflower, castor, and jojoba plant oils to protect hair while tinting it and making it indistinguishable from many gardens. The stylists also lengthen locks with Great Lengths extensions made from 100% human hair for a natural look. On the spa side of the business, aestheticians keep to the natural theme by enhancing facials with marine and plant extracts and energizing tourmaline minerals. They also offer treatments that fight the visibility of aging, such as custom-blended TCA skin peels and microdermabrasion with exfoliating microcrystals. The aestheticians further pamper clients by rendering body wraps packed with rosemary and peppermint, as well as hot- and cool-stone massages, which, hypothetically, would lose to paper massages.
