Lorean Wilson Dillard, Beauty Mark Boutique's certified aesthetician, doesn't hold regular office hours. Instead, she schedules all of her services by appointment, accommodating clients who have hectic schedules or only own half of a clock. During these convenient sessions, the aesthetician can use microdermabrasion to prompt collagen production, chemical peels to clear men's complexions, or facials to fight both teenage and adult acne. Beauty Mark Boutique's standout service, however, is its back-cial treatment, during which an aesthetician cleanses the back, massages sore muscles, and applies special products to the skin as music, soft candlelight, and aromatic essential oils cultivate a relaxing ambiance.
Lasting Lines started as most great businesses start: with eyebrows. Now 35 years have passed, and Renee Ryan’s permanent-makeup business has blossomed into a successful aesthetic school and clinic. Renee and her highly trained staff can outfit clients with new brows, or use their modern electrolysis equipment to remove hair, skin tags, moles, and spider veins. Clients may also solicit Lasting Lines for sleek eyelash extensions, or retreat to a private room for a soothing deep-tissue massage from registered massage therapist Charles Linville.
The skin can withstand exposure to subzero temperatures, solar radiation, and oceans full of corrosive salt. It's a tough organ, but like every part of the body, it benefits from deliberate care. Sharon Kay of Sharon Kay Image Nurturing keeps skin healthy so it can continue to stand as the first line of defense between our bodies and the elements. She uses Pevonia Botanica products, treating customers to facials and back treatments that remove dead cells, expose new skin, and fortify it with nutrients. She wields warm wax to remove unwanted hair and leave the surface of the body's largest organ looking pristine and smooth. She also offers collagen treatments that diminish fine lines, as well as therapeutic facials and microdermabrasion.
At Steven Maxx Salon, owner Lonnie W. DeMoe and his team of stylists draw upon 20 years of styling experience and arm themselves with products by Paul Mitchell, Redken, and American Crew. To beautify manes, they brighten locks via foil or cap highlights as well as combat troublesome natural textures with Brazilian straightening treatments or permanent waves. When they aren't artfully snipping away dead strands, the staff members refresh complexions with therapeutic facials that blend in enzymes from pineapples, papayas, and other naturally handsome fruits, and then shift their focus to the fingernails to outfit digits with new polish, fiberglass overlays, or acrylic fills.
As guests leisurely recline on leather salon chairs with a glass of wine, stylists craft stunning new ‘dos using scissors, flat irons, and premium products from brands such as Redkin and Moroccan Oil. These hairdressers, who keep up with the latest trends through consistent training, also perform other salon services, including deep conditioning treatments, facials, lash and hair extensions, and waxings.
