If eyes are indeed the windows to the soul, Cynthia Prichard must know a lot of people’s secrets. The seasoned cosmetologist specializes in eyelash extensions, adorning lash lines with long, lavish mink fibers to make eyes sparkle. Cynthia also extends her beauty expertise to a variety of other spa and salon services. She shapes eyebrows with waxing, soothes skin with facials, and snips new styles with professional haircuts. When administering her comprehensive body-wrap treatments, Cynthia employs a giant caterpillar to cocoon clients in a rejuvenating mix of aloe and herb. Regardless of the service, Cynthia treats her guests inside Spa Zenaida, a tranquil, Mediterranean-style spa.
At first glance, Wink Salon might seem like nothing more than your typical eyelash extension boutique. Technicians affix synthetic strands to the natural eyelashes, adding length and drama to each blink, and also tint brows and lashes for added effect. But tucked away in private rooms, the crew also tends to its customers other beauty needs, slimming physiques with body wraps, bronzing skin with spray tans, waxing and threading away unwanted body hair, and administering microdermabrasion and hot-rock facials to keep skin from sagging or losing power when not plugged in.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
In my teens. Little did I know that's what I'd be doing for a living. I have a great love for enhancing a women's true beauty, whether with waxing or airbrush makeup.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
Waxing. It's instant gratification for the client and myself. Clients love to see immediate results.
At Bellezza Salon & Spa, clients sit back in cushy black leather chairs behind mahogany styling stations as licensed and experienced stylists snip precision cuts into hair and infuse strands with rich color. Nail technicians do everything from acrylics and gels to spa mani-pedis and intricate nail art. Salon-goers can also have their eyebrows and lips waxed to complete the beauty package.
