According to Cara Mia's licensed aestheticians, the average woman spends about 15 minutes a day applying makeup. Over the course of a year that totals more than 91 hours?hours that could have been spent on more important activities such as helping the kids with their homework or turning the dishwasher into a clubhouse. Cara Mia's team helps women save that time with its permanent makeup sessions, where pen machines add long-lasting pigments that help create fuller lashes or smudge-proof lip liners.
Cara Mia's other services enrich clients' skin and bodies in equal measure. Massage therapists soothe achy muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques, and waxing gurus remove unwanted hair from the underarms and Brazilian areas. To enliven epidermises, try a deluxe facial, which includes a deep cleaning, exfoliating mask, massage, and moisturizer.

Professional aestheticians Lindsey and Chris each arrived at Blush Beauty Spa and Brow Bar from different directions. Lindsey's history with severe acne?and a lack of empathy from her cosmetologists?inspired her journey. Chriss, meanwhile, sees the human body as a canvas that he can make more beautiful, which aligns with his lifelong passion for the arts. Their separate approaches combine to create a chic and inclusive spa and salon. Services include body and facial waxing, skincare and peels, and makeup and lashes. Check out their beauty tips for a helpful guide to DIY beauty care.
The colors within the interior of Designer Cuts are bold and inspiring: flame orange paired with mustard yellow and stark blacks and whites. But the decor pales in comparison to the radiant colors on the heads of those leaving the salon with a new do. The stylists offer a wide variety of services, ranging from hair-coloring services, cuts, and styling to eyelash extensions and brow sculpting.
The family that owns Bella Mia Spa has been pampering clients for 22 years, so they know a thing or two about helping people to relax. Within the cozy, Tuscan-themed space, staffers perform treatments that soothe both body and mind, using fragrant ingredients such as a lavender foot soak or seasonally scented facial products. They enhance physical and mental wellbeing with hot-stone massages or reflexology sessions, and promote detoxification with warm, herbal body wraps.
A small, green topiary, a cherub-like statue, and a water fountain set a tranquil tone as they greet guests near the entrance. Stone accents along the walls create an ambiance reminiscent of old-world Italy or the Alpine quarry where yodeling was invented.
In a cozy, sun-drenched treatment room lined with ruffled curtains, experienced aesthetician Lanay Morrison purifies pores and brightens appearances with Esthetics on Main's slate of dessert-themed facials. After a look at skin condition, tone, and texture, a thorough cleansing and balmy steam treatment entreat pores to open, letting go of impurities and grudges against last Halloween's zombie makeup. During all facials, exfoliation and extractions work to brighten skin, and a soothing mask and upper-body massage melt surplus stress. Aging faces draw antioxidant and hydrating benefits from a lemon zest enzyme facial (up to an $85 value) that wields the tart talents of lemon in a one-hour procedure designed to brighten skin and protect against the elements. The chocolate soufflé facial (an $85 value) firms and lifts, and the 75-minute cherry-sorbet enzyme facial (a $95 value) oxygenates skin and evens tone with the power of cherries, making a compelling cosmetic case for food fights.
