Enesa Seremet, who has globetrotted as an international skincare specialist and earned a postgraduate CIDESCO degree in aesthetics, now helms Enesa Skin Institute, a center that specializes in European beauty treatments. In addition to using techniques from overseas, Seremet imports holistic products such as French wax. Unlike standard hot wax, this Parisian product warms in response to body heat rather than freelancing hibachi grills and avoids burning skin as it gently strips away stubble. Dried herbs and spices combine to create masks for six-procedure facials, soaking skin in natural vitamins and minerals. Each session starts with a personal consultation, and early patrons wait for their aesthetician in a yellow waiting room with Victorian-style couches and armchairs.
Heralded in Tanning Trends magazine, True Colors Tanning introduces skin to advanced bronzing technologies at a number of Louisville-area and southern Indiana locations.

Alternatively, experienced staffers can apply airbrushed tans or spray tans by Australian Gold in the time it takes to count 180 seconds using a laser-guided system.

Posh Salon and Gift's mission is to make hair look great and stay that way. The first part is simple enough?a trained staff offers haircuts, coloring treatments, and styling to transform any head of hair into an elegant 'do. But for the second part, the stylists use Dior?'s proprietary system?Keratherapy?designed to minimize bad hair days and keep locks disciplined and manageable.
