Drawing on more than a decade of experience, derma guru Zoe Alexander performs a suite of skin-centric services, from waxing to organic facials. She custom blends masks to suit each client's skin type, deploying ingredients such as raw organic honey, green clay, and organic apple-cider vinegar to combat fine lines, blemishes, and all colors other than green. Lash and eyebrow tinting add drama to faces, and waxing services from head to toe de-fuzz physiques for up to six weeks.
The waxing aestheticians at Smooth Operations specialize in private grooming for private areas, preparing them to go public on summer's sandy runways. Unlike the wax used in your chess-club hazing, Smooth Operations employs anti-inflammatory Cirepil wax to provide as painless an experience as possible. The basic wax keeps certain sights modestly unseen during swimsuit-donning season. Opt for a decorative souvenir tuft or a landing strip fit for the Concorde from the French wax. The daring will emerge more aerodynamic than ever after a Brazilian wax, which levels all foliage down to the birthday suit. Depending on the size of the area, aestheticians may take 15 minutes to an hour to craft the bikini-area coif of your choosing, and sensitive areas stay as smooth as a well-oiled Slip 'n' Slide for up to four weeks.
The staff at Dermal Essentials' three locations takes skin seriously. With backgrounds and certifications in aesthetics and makeup artistry, they know how to cleanse skin and enhance appearances whether they are performing microdermabrasions, organic peptide peels, or makeup applications. During treatments, they use high-quality products from Image Skincare, a chemical-free, pharmaceutical-grade skincare line, and Follique, which calms skin after waxing, shaving, or a stern talking-to in the mirror.
If a jack of all trades is a master of none, then the aestheticians at Eyebrow Hub can safely call themselves masters of the art of eyebrow threading. They rid hirsute foreheads of unwanted stragglers, leaving behind gorgeously arched brows, but none of the redness, swelling, or amorous bees left by waxing. Despite the name, the threadsters also apply their hair-removal services to other areas, including upper lips, chins, and legs. Guests with a mind to supplement their threading, can go in for henna tattoos, eyelash extensions, and microdermabrasion.
From her niche inside Marin Hair Company's salon, eyelash artist Tish Vargas applies individual natural or synthetic mink lash extensions to lavish eyes with dramatic impact in 90-minute sessions. Extensions affix to the natural lash with a durable adhesive, lengthening and filling out follicular frames with up to 45 extensions per eye. Winks stay lush for up to two months, until each extension sheds according to its paired lash's natural life cycle or contractual vacation policy.
