After healing patients as a nurse for 25 years, Mary Lynn of Mary Lynn?s Massage and Day Spa traded in bandages for body wraps and became a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician. Today, Mary Lynn helms her own eponymous day spa, where she coddles clients with 15 types of massage techniques?from deep tissue to reflexology?and a range of skin treatments, including rejuvenating chemical peels and permanent makeup for eyes and lips. Her cozy and elegant day spa welcomes clients with an inviting waiting room, complete with a cushy leather sofa for pretreatment relaxing. Inside private treatment rooms, salmon hues set patrons at ease with warm comfort like a kangaroo's velvet-lined pouch.
Lisa Morrow—a certified permanent-makeup clinician and certified nurse—gives clients the gift of 24-hour glamour by skillfully applying permanent makeup and lash extensions. During permanent-makeup sessions, Lisa uses a sterilized needle to apply micropigments that fill in sparse brows or outline smiles for a nonstop put-together look that benefits busy parents and professionals, people with makeup allergies, and chemotherapy patients. All sessions include a 30-minute consultation and the application of a topical anesthetic designed to increase client comfort, as well as a touchup within eight weeks of the initial treatment to ensure proper maintenance. Lisa's lash-enhancing services include 10–45 false strands per eye, which she applies painstakingly one by one to create a natural mascara look or a lush fringe that adds a dose of glamour to eyes with or without makeup. Lisa can also add colored crystal to lashes, adding multifaceted sparkle to eyes without donning kaleidoscope-lens glasses.

Whether she?s enhancing the come-hither stares of doctors, models, or the wives of Arizona Cardinals players, Shawn Geranen believes in giving everyone the star treatment. Complimentary aromatherapy and chocolate await each patron the moment they arrive and help ease them into blissful states of relaxation for the duration of their stays. Using extensions by Xtreme Lashes, Shawn's staff outfits eyes with the same synthetic strands that have plumped up the lash lines of celebrities such as Ashley Greene, Kelly Rowland, and AnnaLynne McCord. The water-resistant extensions are both comfortable and natural-looking, making them a perfect choice for weddings and proms, and lashes may be further enhanced with colored highlights or lash crystals.
When she isn?t busy creating more winsome winks, Shawn stays busy by offering a slate of waxing services and by freshening faces with her other specialty?airbrush makeup. Using an airbrush gun, she carefully applies liquid foundations made from pigmented minerals, creating perfectly blend-able bases that leave faces looking flawless in photos and surveillance tapes. The lightweight formula doesn?t just look good; it also feels great on the skin and can last up to 16 hours, making it a great option for special occasions.
