The experts at Your Lash Chance! work in the world of Hollywood-style drama and beauty. As makeup artists, they create Hollywood-ready looks with one of the most expressive features: the eyelash. Once they have elongated, volumized, and curved lashes, client’s eyes are ready to coyly bat at dates or flirtatious movie cameras. Customers can select one of three eyelash-extension intensities before the professionals adhere single strands of silk lashes to natural ones with a waterproof adhesive. The strands shed along with natural lashes, which means that the extensions typically last up to four weeks.
The technicians at St. Tropez Nail Spa stay abreast of advancements in mani-pedi science. In addition to applying acrylic nails, they paint on chip-resistant shellac as an alternative to flakier polishes. They also embellish fingers with NexGenNails, which avoid the nail-bed damage caused by certain acrylics and the distinctive smell caused by painting your nails with expired ketchup. Their services encompass skin treatments as well; a leg mask and exfoliation top off the spa pedicure, and facials and permanent-makeup applications round out the spa menu.

Perfect Tan's airbrush artists swathe skin in custom-blended tanning formulas that enhance beauty and self-confidence without UV exposure. The salon’s technicians show a remarkable concern for detail during spray-tan applications, evenly covering the skin with a DHA-based solution derived from sugar beets. Each appointment consists of a brief consultation, five minutes of spraying, and a warm blast of blow-dryer air. Natural-looking hues, such as cocoa, almond, and deep-fried chocolate, swirl together to create a custom color that radiates from skin for several days. Body butters, sugar scrubs, and moisturizers from brands such as Rain and Jamaica Me Tan line the shelves of the studio's boutique; these and other products can help patrons maintain a healthy, hydrated glow.
