Adriana works with sugar every day, but she’s not a baker. She’s in the business of removing hair, using an all-natural paste created from sugar, water, and lemon juice. She plies her trade at the self-titled private studio, Adriana’s Professional Body Sugaring, where she treats clients to her sweet, simple services in both English and Spanish. She reports that, due to the simple ingredients and cool temperature of the mixture, most find sugaring less unpleasant than waxing. Her formula contains no allergens to irritate the skin, only adheres to dead skin cells and hair, and tastes pretty great on toast.
Zebra print appears in unusual spots throughout Classic Cuts: in the trim around a cabinet, on a spa chair’s pillow, on the matting for a photograph. The motif adds to the playful-yet-serene vibe inside the salon, where Gayla—an expert stylist—works with her fellow Classic Cuts staff members to sculpt new dos with Bed Head products. They also nourish locks with deep-conditioning treatments and form hair into delicate updos that wouldn't seem out of place in a Jane Austen novel, unless you were using them as a bookmark.
Heather Wilson is a one-stop beauty shop: she's a licensed aesthetician, a massage therapist, and a reflexologist. Though she specializes in therapeutic and deep-tissue massage techniques, Heather also integrates other modalities—including Swedish and hot-stone bamboo fusion—to better enhance sessions. She also offers microdermabrasion treatments and body sugaring, which removes unwanted hair from eyebrows, horns, and legs.
Arch Brows Threading & Spa takes an organic, ayurvedic Indian approach to traditional spa methods, often incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs to beautify and promote relaxation. Although all-natural honey waxing and brow threading are the spa's specialty, skilled aestheticians can also trim the physique with a tummy mask or extract toxins with a seaweed and French clay body wrap. Clients may also solicit a nonsurgical face-lift or papaya enzyme peel to renew the complexion, or request a henna tattoo in the shape of a moustache to fool a local barber.
