At Beautiful You Permanent Cosmetics, clients recline in comfortable beds with blankets, pillows, and relaxing music while registered nurses set to work enhancing their features. To achieve a natural look, they use the manual SofTap hand method, which lifts the facial tissues as they deliver hairline strokes of pigment to define the brows, the eyelids, or the lips. Patrons bring along favorite colors of makeup or pieces of a shrub they need to blend in with, and the salon's technicians work to match that hue. Disposable materials are used for each session to ensure cleanliness.
Skin Blends’ aesthetician founder, Kathleen, began her business by selling skincare products created and tested by her staff of licensed aestheticians. This premium line of mineral makeup, cleansers, moisturizers, and scrubs works to leave all types of skin radiant, and, unlike bad standup routines, is never tested on animals. The products are often employed during Skin Blends’ slate of comprehensive skincare procedures, which include facial peels, exfoliation, and makeup-application lessons from a professional who’s worked with models from 417 Magazine.
Licensed and nationally accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences, the schools of Missouri College and Cosmetology welcome students to learn the crafts of cosmetology and esthetics. In turn, students then welcome customers for walk-in salon services and by-appointment spa services. They beautify hair with cuts, perms, and color treatments, wax off unwanted body hair, and anoint fingers and toes with polish.

Aestheticians further enhance epidermises with makeup and skincare products from brands such as Matis Paris and Motives by Loren Ridinger, working alongside resident nutritionists who engineer customized wellness plans to help clients shed pounds and inches.
At South Beach Tanning Fantasy, knowledgeable staffers point guests in the direction of 17 beds, including Ergoline and Matrix models that build tans in 12–15 minutes and a UV-free Mystic Tan spray-tan booth.
