Most 12-year-olds have no idea what they want to do with their lives, but that?s when Maria DeNicola first found the inspiration to study electrolysis. As of today, she?s been doing electrolysis for more than 32 years and has even devised an all-new technique to attack full follicles with alternating current. DeNicola also eliminates unwanted body hair through laser hair removal or break-dance competitions on sandpaper.
With the help of her med spa team, which includes two registered nurses, DeNicola pampers faces with microdermabrasion, lasers, and high-end products from La Maison Clayton Shagal and PCA Skin, as well as fights wrinkles with Botox and Juvederm injections. DeNicola happily serves members of the transgender community with her services and formerly acted as president of transgender support group A Rose.
Since 1975, National Hair Centers have treated men and women?s thinning tresses with treatments ranging from surgical hair transplants to vitamin supplements. Their three-step laser program catalyzes growth with beams tailored to clients? specific hair loss stage; alternatively, FDA-approved regrowth products?such as Propecia and Minoxidil? encourage follicles to sprout more effectively than fedoras lined with Chia seeds. An array of women?s-only options, such as wigs and extensions, round out the offerings. The center's team of image consultants and licensed hair restoration stylists also place a premium on privacy, ensuring clients? comfort by leading confidential consultations, treating scalps in private salon suites, and discouraging friends from hosting hair-graft-anniversary parties.

The salon also specializes in eyebrow waxing and threading for unkempt Groucho glasses.
Long before tweezers were invented, individuals rid their faces of excess fuzz using nothing more than a cotton thread. That simple method of hair removal was so successful that it has remained a steadfast option in salons today. At Hollywood Beauty, specialists twist pieces of cotton thread to smooth faces or play Cat's Cradle in their downtime.
