The certified stylists at Lashful frame eyes with mink lashes to achieve looks ranging from elegant to seductive. Their uncanny attention to detail comes in handy during extension applications, when they meticulously attach each artificial lash to a real one to achieve the most natural look possible. Sensitive eyes need not wince in fear, as the adhesive material with which they apply lashes is specially formulated to not perturb the eye with harsh irritants or teasing optical illusions. The stylists also dip natural lashes in a semipermanent tint that—much like the extensions—gives eyes the glamorous look of freshly applied mascara.
For more than 20 years, the follicle whisperers of Guci Image have reaped healthy bumper crops of strong new hair on the heads of men and women using a variety of nonsurgical hair-restoration solutions and therapies. For a glamorous aesthetic fix, clients can turn to hair extensions from brands such as Great Lengths, which attaches through a cold-fusion method or by persuading follicles to cuddle up to new strands with a big bear hug. Clients who wish to boost their own natural hair can try advanced laser-technology methods including the Anagen AlphaLase LX40 system, which sheds a cascade of red and infrared light across the head to help stop hair loss. The trained technicians specialize in women's hair loss, and the team boasts an encyclopedic knowledge of the various techniques—including Microfusion treatments and CTR hair replacement—available to female patients looking to recover from any level of hair loss.
The dental specialists at Bergen Dental Spa brighten smiles with a potent, light-activated bleaching gel during Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. After placing a protective barrier on lips and gums, technicians begin each timed application by gently soaking tarnished tusks in the whitening gel. The glimmering lights of an LED lamp accelerate the whitening process by signaling to the gel’s bleaching agents, which covertly infiltrate enamel fortresses to break up stains caused by cigarettes, coffee, and mud-tracking tooth fairies.
How does one start a skincare business with no equipment, products, or money? Kim Evans found herself in that predicament when she started her business immediately after passing the state boards. With nothing but faith and a strong work ethic, she began tending to her clients' skin needs inside a rented room of a small spa. She worked 80 hours per week and became a licensed massage therapist to expand her business into what it is today: a wellness spa that enhances the beauty and health of skin and body through spa services and massage. Inside 2Gorjis Integrated Health & Wellness, three private treatment rooms house clients as two skin therapists cleanse surfaces during custom facials, or wrap bodies in aromatherapy herbal linens. The staff members bolster natural features with eyelash extensions, meticulous body waxing, and makeup artistry that includes exclamation points drawn next to eyebrows.
Zen Massage’s friendly licensed therapists knead muscles back into doughy bliss with 80 minutes of connective strokes. Swedish massage is one of the most popular types of knead, stimulating circulation and reducing emotional and physical stress by melting tense muscles like the sun melts scoops of ice cream. Each massage is customized to patient preferences, so therapists can use light, medium, or firm pressure. Hot stones placed along stressed areas allow for the release of deeply buried tension, while aromatherapy uses blended essential oils to calm the senses. At the close of the massage, therapists wrap customers in hot towels, allowing the sultry heat to melt newly-plied muscles into non-hydrogenated muscle butter.
At The New Makeover Salon, the stylists aim to make clients look and feel their best, whether they come in with a specific hairstyle in mind or are unsure of how a hummingbird got lodged in their ponytail. In addition to cuts, colors, and updos, the hair gurus help clients unwind from a stressful week with complimentary glasses of wine or coffee. Threading and waxing services rid clients of unwanted hair, and men can also journey to the salon for a professional face shave.
