Wielding eco-friendly and organic beauty products, stylists at Salon Blue aim to flatter clients' faces in healthy, realistic ways with well-shaped brows and grooming waxes. Facial waxing cleans up unwanted fuzz on the lip or chin ($12) and tidy the hairline ($15) below ears and along the neck in 10–30 minutes. Eyebrow waxes ($14) both trim and shape eye arches until they can subtly convey disdain, elation, or a warning that your date's toupee is on crooked.
Aesthetician Debra L. Andresen built a loyal client base at a locally esteemed day spa before striking out on her own to found DermAllure. Andresen revives faces with skincare services ranging from basic facials to a 24-karat-gold facials, which involve masking the face in particles of precious metal that block free radicals but attract tomb raiders. The aesthetician can also enhance the natural beauty of eyes, eyebrows, and lips with subtle colors from SofTap permanent cosmetics.
Dedicated to providing upscale pampering, High End Hair Salon & Spa's staffers beautify clients with quality products such as Redken hair color and OPI nail polish. The boutique's décor evokes an outdoor park with forest-green walls and potted plants whose tendrils have been expertly curled by stylists practicing perm techniques.
It isn’t the nature of Our Salon’s beauty pros to merely chop hair and file nails. Rather, they consider themselves something of artists. Stylists alter hair’s texture with keratin smoothing treatments and pack on eye-catching glimmer with highlights or crystals. Nail techs treat each nail as if it is a tiny canvas. On top of candy-cane prints and glittery polish they top fingers with gel color—a special formula that resists chips for up to two weeks of normal wear or one attempt at petting a piranha.
