The staff at Flawless Serenity are merely enhancers of natural beauty. They wax off unwanted hair from brows and upper lips and clear out clogged pores during facials. Clean canvases pop with professional makeup applications for daytime, weddings, and proms. And refreshed visages are completed with lash- and brow-tinting services. To make sure clients feel confident, Flawless Serenity also provides an FAQ page with helpful answers to questions such as "What products do you use?" and "What makes clouds stay up?"
After studying oncology aesthetics at The Skincare Therapy Institute, licensed aesthetician Katrina Lee opened Brow Beater Designs where she schedules traditional spa services, such as waxes and peels. Katrina also helps revitalize the skin of patients who've undergone cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and hormone therapy. And as an eyelash-extension technician and makeup artist, Katrina can add pizzazz to freshly rejuvenated faces.
The owners of Farashé the Day Spa designed it with the feng shui elements of water, fire, metal, wood, and earth in mind. It makes for a fitting setting, since the treatments that take place there, like feng shui, draw from ancient Eastern healing philosophies. These Ayurvedic treatments range from scalp massages that stimulate the senses to applications of warm oils that separate clients from the lampposts to which they’ve frozen their foreheads. Aestheticians also perform Western spa treatments including facials with Dermalogica or GM Collin products. During body treatments, therapists draw from natural ingredients, such as mineral salts and sea mud, which clients then wash off with a massaging Vichy shower. Treatments take place amid the arched doorways and draped gold silk curtains that mark the spa’s Indian- and Moroccan-influenced decor.
Studio K owners Kathy and Cliff Hughes have assembled an auspicious roster of licensed staff members who provide a comprehensive list of haircare services. Quality products such as Morrocanoil, Redken, and Matrix aid trained scissorhands to produce lustrous results, inducing jealousy from freshly waxed cars and slickly waxed mustaches. Women can don a range of styles from summery bobs to floor-length evening 'dos, and men traditionally opt for short, polished pompadours. After locks are adjusted to the optimal length, blow dryers gently cement styles without the harsh bronzing techniques of yesteryear.
Jasmen Davis got her start as a freelance wedding makeup artist, but that was just the foundation. These days her resume boasts eye-catching clients such as CoverGirl, Christian Siriano, and Under Armour. When not creating fresh makeup looks for TV and film productions, special events, and scuba dives, she helps all humans look better from her post at Sass Salon. Guests can also enlist Jasmen's expertise for sleek lash extensions, which offer a voluminous look without messy mascara.
In the setting of a white, two-story house, the staff at Colours Salon & Day Spa aims to serve clients with the same hospitality and comfort as they would expect at a friend’s abode while providing all the indulgent services of a salon and day spa. A talented cast of hairstylists, armed with products by L’Oreal, Sebastian, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology, transform drab ‘dos into chic and polished styles.
Beyond the salon area are the private spa rooms, where skin treatments, waxing sessions, and massage therapy take place. Licensed aestheticians offer five kinds of facials, such as glycolic acid treatments or a classic European session complete with cleansing and exfoliating. Massage therapists, meanwhile, assuage aches with deep-tissue and Swedish modalities, each of which provides more stress relief than throwing a lance through a wall of bubble wrap. Two- to five-hour beauty packages save clients from having to choose, offering them curated selections of massages, mani-pedis, facials, and lunch options.
