Understanding every skincare product and treatment on the market can be overwhelming. That’s where Tamala Mason comes in. At Sozo Skin Care Studio, the master aesthetician puts her clients at ease as she beautifies their skin and draws upon training at Aveda and Toni & Guy to educate them on the best services for them. Following a “one size never fits all” philosophy she refined while working for a plastic surgeon and as a lead aesthetician for Spa Mira Vista, Tamala performs a thorough consultation and skin analysis to help determine each client’s skin type. Once she has determined whether it’s dehydrated, sensitive or rosacea-prone, she sets to work pampering the face with natural, organic enzyme masks, aromatherapy massage, and wrinkle-erasing serums from Dr. Dennis Gross. To help products penetrate the skin, Tamala employs the aid of advanced equipment, such as bt-micro ultrasonic peeling technology. Traditional waxing services are enhanced with Depilar hair-removal gels, which offer results comparable to laser hair removal but without the unwanted superpowers.
The all-female staff at Depil Brazil Waxing Studio rids bikini zones and other routinely shaved areas of unwanted fuzz during thorough waxing treatments. Licensed aestheticians employ quality products to abolish ingrown follicles and impede speedy hair regrowth. The staffers accelerate services with a no-strip express technique, which is less painful than traditional waxing and quickly removes hair without the use of paper products or a fiery rocket launch. Depil Brazil Waxing also performs its specialty hair-removal services for men, and the disposable materials employed by the team ensure cleanliness throughout its procedures.
Amid soothing sage-colored walls, patrons buckle in for body transforming in wraps designed to help shed weight and burn fat. Technicians gently fold their clients into toasty wraps that work to help sculpt leaner, smoother silhouettes capable of creating more aerodynamic shadow puppets. The shop?s repertoire of miocrodermabrasion, facial, waxing, and tanning treatments allows clients to ensure no inch goes unbeautified, and a collection of weight loss and anti-aging products for sale helps customers keep up the primping process long after guests leave the spa.
At Celebrity Beauty Waxing, aesthetician Courtney Berry uses her unique—and strip-free—waxing technique to gently and swiftly remove hair from nearly ever part of the body. She transforms stubbly below-the-belt areas into silky smooth terrains with bikini, Brazilian, and buttocks waxing, and keep gams smooth with treatments for the lower or full legs. Further north, Courtney masterfully shapes brows into flattering arches or intimidating triangles, and eliminates peach fuzz from upper lips. Aside from waxing, the aesthetician combats breakouts and aging with three types of facials.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Brazilian waxes are my most popular service. I use only high-quality hard wax. Hard wax is a strip-less waxing technique that is much less painful than traditional strip wax, because it does not stick to or lift the skin. It thoroughly removes all the hair from the root, which over time causes the hair to grow back slower and finer than before. Hard wax comes off the skin quickly and easily, leaving no wax or sticky residue behind. Because of this, clients who are not able to get waxed with traditional wax, due to sensitive skin or extremely course, stubborn hair, have had no issues get waxed with hard wax.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
I have certificates for brazilian waxing, chemical peels, microderm, makeup application, and other skincare treatments.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
Most of my clients say that I provide them with the most thorough and painless waxing they have ever had. And [I have] many clients [who were] unable to tolerate being waxed at other places [who are now] easily able to get waxed by me on a regular basis. In fact, I have a few clients that no longer live in town, but travel here for business or to visit friends and family, and [they] will wait until one of those occasions to get waxed, because they will still only come to me.
