Rocks Blow Dry Bar is a salon with no scissors. Hair clippings have never graced its floors, and its sinks have never touched a drop of hair color. That's because Rocks Blow Dry Bar specializes in one simple, yet essential service: the blow dry. Whether they're there to freshen up for a night on the town or simply bask in the massage-like relaxation of a professional shampoo, visitors to Rocks Blow Dry Bar walk in with languishing locks and emerge in less than an hour with a shiny, tossable style customized to their tastes, whether it's voluminous and curly, stick straight, or a theoretical quantum state between the two. Beyond a standard wash and dry, stylists can add deep-conditioning treatments and soothing scalp massages, and even deck out clients with formal updos and makeup applications for upscale events.
For Tammy D'Eramo, semi-permanent makeup isn't about vanity?it's about self-esteem and confidence for clients who might have difficulty applying makeup themselves. At Advanced Dermagraphics, Inc., she wields a steady hand to perform this intricate service, which she's mastered over more than 12 years in the business. As a licensed master permanent cosmetic practitioner/aesthetician, Tammy complements her makeup services with other clinical treatments: eyelash enhancement, facials, peels, masks, and skin needling, a nonsurgical skin-rejuvenation technique that stokes collagen production to fill wrinkles and camouflage scars naturally.
After spending her early years rifling through her mother's makeup bag, owner Martha Sznoluch pursued a career as an aesthetician, working as a skincare adviser for Estée Lauder and a certified laser technician. Drawing on her 13 years of experience in the industry, including postgraduate certifications from The International Dermal Institute in Washington, DC, Martha opened 'Ohana Skincare & Makeup Studio in 2010 to perform services ranging from microdermabrasions to waxing treatments. Martha and her staff wield handpicked skincare products and peels by Skin Therapeutics and Bionet Esthetics when administering custom facials. The expert eyes of the studio's beauty mavens ensure that faces possess the desired natural makeup look in special-occasion makeup sessions, which help a bride's natural beauty shine through showers of rice or an unexpected rain of cornhusks.:m]]
Located within a stately two-story brick home, Perfectly Pixeled Wellness Spa offers clients expert beauty services in a cozy, residential setting. From the button-tufted couch in the waiting area to the eclectic knickknacks in some dimly lit treatment rooms, the ambiance here is warm and inviting instead of cold and clinical, like some hospital in an igloo. Within those comfy confines, aestheticians zap unwanted body hair with lasers and pamper skin with facials or peels. Massage and reiki treatments recalibrate muscles and minds, whereas permanent makeup treatments redefine features with expertly applied injected inks.
When it comes to anti-aging spa services, Euro-Med Spa Boutique relies on its trained medical professionals. The staff uses laser technology to remove unwanted hair and treat sun spots and rosacea. The staff uses Harmony/Soprano XL Pain Free technology, which is diode-based, to improve skin texture and correct imperfections brought on by age and sun exposure. They offer the Clear Lift or Pixel Skin Rejuvenation to lessen age spots, tighten skin, and repair acne scarring. Additionally, they also provide medical HCG weight loss and teeth whitening.
The head-to-toe services offered at Lotus Day Spa all revolve around the same goal: to relax and beautify clients. Facials rid pores of dirt and infuse skin with vitamin C to improve firmness and elasticity. Massage therapists knead knotted muscles so backs aren’t all lumpy, and aestheticians apply flutter-worthy eyelash extensions. Mani-pedis with Shellac polish and nail-art add-ons round out the list of pampering services.
