Suede Studio is part salon, part spa, and part boutique—in other words, a one-stop place for practically any beauty need. In the salon, hair gets top priority, as stylists treat clients to haircuts, color treatments, and extensions. Protein and hydrating treatments help restore hair health, and the salon also carries sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners to strengthen, restore, and protect locks back at home. The stylists also beautify with threading and waxing services, as well as makeup and eyelash extensions.
Over in the spa, relaxation reigns supreme with a variety of soothing massage therapy options. Nail techs perform luxurious manicures and pedicures with hydrating paraffin masks. And specialty facials target specific skincare woes, such as the collagen facial that rejuvenates skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines while passive aggressively hinting for frowns to not return.
Kim Victor uses premium products by Goldwell color and KMS to deliver the best results during salon services. In addition to providing exceptional haircuts and hair treatments, Kim cares for her clients' skin with Yonka Paris solutions made with botanicals and essential oils. This foundation of healthy skin paves the way for Bare Escentuals' irritant-free mineral makeup.
The Sassy Salon team also showcases their skills in hair and makeup during local fashion shows, such as the 2008 Hair Wars. Themed after the Garden of Eden, this six-week competition featured models clad in bathing suits and leaves. Some of them were also draped with live snakes that refused to comment on the event.
At Cosmo Beauty Academy––a cosmetological school dedicated to staying up-to-date with the latest beauty technologies––students apply their newfound skills under the supervision of licensed instructors. They pamper clients with a range of hair, skin, and nail services using products from Dermalogica, Framesi, Helga Van Dyke Skincare, and OPI. In addition to haircuts, coloring, and styling services, they create specialty styles such as braids and dreads. Facial treatments range from soothing skin therapies using Dermalogica products to diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments, which strive to make faces sell better on eBay.
More than a decade after creating her signature line of cosmetics, JanElizabeth cemented her commitment to facial beauty when she established The Perfect Eyebrow & Makeup Center in 2007. She leads her team with nearly 20 years of experience, which enables her to blend custom foundations to match clients' skin and determine the right shade to tint lashes and brows. Rather than follow an overarching philosophy of how eyebrows should look, JanElizabeth thickens, streamlines, and arches brows to enhance facial architecture or reflect the whims of the stock market. They offer makeup lessons on an individual basis.
