Although creative cuts and color headline the menu at Peanut's Hair Attraction, Peanut and her team offer a number of additional salon services. The resident nail techs, for instance, beautify hands and feet with glittery french pedicures and acrylic tips that can add much-needed length to fingernails or store-bought reaching canes. Likewise, the waxing specialists whisk unwanted hair from nearly any area of the anatomy while other staff members soothe stressed muscles and minds with gentle massage.
Complexions Center for Clinical Skin Care and Permanent Makeup revitalizes wearied faces with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning. The center's repertoire of services includes chemical peels designed to treat acne or age-related blemishes. Specially concocted to the unique color, oiliness, and acne proclivities of each client’s skin, the acne peel bathes epidermises in alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids to usurp transgressing layers of skin and eliminate surface pimples. The anti-aging peel's glycolic acid exfoliates skin and stimulates new collagen growth, thickening skin and banishing pigmentation and fine lines caused by sun damage, and requires no recovery time or sacrifices of pricey organic produce to the sun. Microdermabrasion exfoliates skin's surface with microcrystals and promotes cell growth while treating enlarged pores and age spots. Dermaplaning carefully shaves away skin cells that, like a mall Santa still accepting wish lists in July, have overstayed their welcome, resulting in a smoother, tighter appearance with fewer wrinkles and clearer pores.
A tan often indicates a recent visit to an exotic locale, but with Beach Babe Tan, clients can darken their skin tone without leaving their homes. The mobile tanning company carts its organic airbrush-tanning equipment to locations around the area, instantly bronzing bodies to prepare clients for trips to the beach, weddings, or other events.
Skilled aesthetician Gayle Short draws on years of experience as a professional makeup artist and cosmetics salesperson to apply permanent pigment to patrons' façades at Permanently Pretty. During a two-hour session, Short utilizes a tattoo-like process to embolden eyebrows or trace around upper and lower eyelids. The epidermal embellishments aim to enhance natural facial features and, much like poems engraved into rubber, are designed to withstand water and smudges. A one-hour follow-up appointment ensures that new color sets properly. Vibrant magenta walls greet guests at Permanently Pretty's lobby area, where a cushy, floral-print sofa cradles awaiting visitors.
