It would probably be more efficient to ask Joan Bell Carroll about what she doesn't do. As the founder of Browz Makeup Bar, she is, of course, a makeup artist and aesthetician, but her skill set includes more than just creating a pretty face. She is also a licensed aesthetics instructor, and teaches courses at Browz on basic and advanced makeup artistry, waxing, and even pole and belly dancing. Inside her studio—a chocolate-hued space accented with pops of orange and blue—she hosts a diverse range of events that includes everything from birthday and lingerie parties to photo shoots and dance classes.
But since opening Browz nearly 20 years ago, Joan's specialty has always been brow and makeup services. She and her team can shape brows however clients prefer, whether by waxing, threading, tweezing, or pixellating. They also remove unwanted hair elsewhere with a complete selection of body waxing treatments. They create flawless skin with airbrush makeup applications, and can lengthen lashes with semi-permanent extensions or temporary strip or individual lashes.
Inside the plum-colored walls of Crystyles Boutique, racks teem with designer fashions and one-of-a-kind pieces including women's clothes, accessories, and shoes. Crystyles stylists are adept at wardrobe renovations and personal shopping, and are eager to help overhaul closets filled with outdated clothing or hundreds of Halloween costumes. Every last Wednesday of the month is dedicated to wine-ing down in-store with complimentary wine and massages. When not focusing on apparel, guests can wander over to The Bar, an aesthetic extension of the boutique where trained technicians define peepers with synthetic eyelash extensions, re-arch brows, and doll up faces with makeup applications.
At Creative Skin Care, medical aestheticians recognize the fundamental link between health and beauty. Extensive backgrounds in both cosmetic and clinical care have trained them to seek the root of beauty issues in the deeper well-being of the body. Complimentary skin analyses allow skin-care experts to eschew "quick fixes" and "iron helmets" for in-depth beautification campaigns that might incorporate massage, salicylic-acid treatments, and oxygenation. Aestheticians are masters of lasers, whether they are directing the Palomar IPL laser at little melanin bull's-eyes within hair follicles or wielding the Alma Harmony XL laser to rout spider veins with little discomfort and no downtime.
Whether your goal is to shed pounds or maintain them, the staff at Absolute Weightloss and Wellness can help. The healthcare providers help lead clients through medical weight-loss (including lipo injections), natural weight-loss, and through HCG diet protocol. Additionally, they help tighten skin above the neck with Obagi products and dermal fillers.
At Eyetopia Spa, Larevemos “Lady” Patterson and her team free women from time-consuming makeup routines by applying mink or silk eyelash extensions in a variety of styles and colors. The individual extensions adhere to lashes with a soft-drying adhesive to create one of three natural effects: mascara, dramatic, or extreme, using 45 lashes per eye. Once customers have donned lashes of their preferred material, length, curl, and fullness (some extensions measure up to a quarter millimeter in diameter), they maintain their style with fill-ins, which Lady recommends receiving every three to four weeks, unless you have reason to believe the world will be ending at dawn anyway. She'll also be donating a portion of her proceeds from her Groupon to The American Breast Cancer Society.
