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.
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.
To the staffers at Highland Spa, each of their services is a way to make a client feel special. Unlike a sinking ship’s rescue boat, they welcome men, women, and children alike to indulge in luxurious mani-pedis, hydrating oxygen facials, or waxing treatments. The spa also houses a fleet of lasers that smoothes wrinkles and softens the appearance of body hair in a cozy, calm atmosphere.
High-profile celebrities have tapped Nev Moses for her talent in eyelash design.

Dr. Gregory D. Roberts of Roberts Cosmetic Surgery Center specializes in beauty from the neck up. As a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, he puts his skills to work lifting faces, augmenting weak features, and minimizing ones that are hogging the spotlight. His goal is to bring faces into aesthetic harmony through surgery or less-invasive injectables, both of which he performs personally.
Off the clock, Dr. Roberts also shares his services with a program called Face to Face. This organization matches victims of domestic abuse with surgeons who then volunteer to repair their facial injuries.
Nominated for D Magazine's Best Facial category in 2012, Facial, Inc. specializes in treatments that leave skin looking radiant and youthful. Aestheticians smooth away fine lines and other imperfections with diamond-dermabrasion sessions, purify complexions with facials, and sell cosmetics for patrons to use at home. The salon's stylists also clip chic haircuts, infuse tresses with rich color, and keep hair shimmering with glazes and glosses.
The spa staff operates on the philosophy that beauty and wellness result from the body's sense of balance, and its freedom from impurities. This approach leads technicians and aestheticians to use natural and organic products, as well as noninvasive mechanical processes, when they rejuvenate faces and bodies. They specialize in eyelash extensions long enough to reach for healthy produce, and in nonsurgical face-lifts that use microcurrent, LED, or galvanic current. Other clinical facial therapies include chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and the staff is also skilled in waxing.
