As a girl, Stevee Danielle would watch professional makeup artists transform her actress mother and her show-business cohorts into glamorous stars. That sparked her interest in the craft, and at the age of 20, she opened her own beauty salon, Stevee Danielle Hair and Makeup. She quickly built out a team of skilled, trained stylists and makeup artists to augment her own talents and form a well-coiffed laser-tag team.
Though Stevee and her crew tackle a slew of services—such as hair cutting and coloring and manicures—in her salon, they specialize in bridal hair and makeup done on location and beautify 8–20 bridal parties per week. Stevee has even appeared on The Morning Blend to discuss her successful traveling wedding services and the latest bridal trend of weaving sparklers into hair.
ViBE Spa & Salon pampers corporal peripheries inside an urban sanctuary, washing away accumulated stress and bolstering the beauty of each customer.

At the family-owned Patel's Threading & Henna Art, a staff of threading specialists and henna artists calls upon more than 18 years of experience to accentuate facial features during 10- to 20-minute threading treatments. Precise string wielders quickly uproot unwanted individual hairs using 100% cotton thread, which causes less redness and discomfort than waxing. After treatments, patients reclaim dominion over the wildest of brows and open eye shelves to a range of facial expressions from mild scolding to consternation, intrigue, hunger, and x-ray vision.
In the battle against unwanted hair, the aestheticians at Wax In The City are fully equipped to eliminate wayward follicles from a variety of bodily surfaces. Hirsute patrons can select from the bountiful menu of fuzz-removal areas, including the underarms, for more confident high-fives ($20 for women, $25 for men), or the chin, for a smoother surface on which to apply a fake beard ($8 for women, $12 for men). In a private salon room, strand-strippers can banish hair fibers from the stomach ($20), sharpen sideburns ($15 for women, $25 for men), or reinstate a curvaceous shape to eyebrows ($16 for women, $20 for men). Wax In The City's aestheticians recommend 1/4 inch of growth before each hair-harvest session to ensure a proper grip on follicles and to prevent missed hairs from forming images of Elvis.
