Carol Bly pioneered her own line of all-natural mineral makeup and skincare products, which she and her staff use to beautify guests at Purity Botanicals. Bly's thorough knowledge of cosmetic products helps her work with clients to develop effective skincare regimens designed to address individual concerns.
Tina Zillmann, Skin Rejuvenation Clinique's owner and director, espouses a firm belief that "education is the key to success." This applies equally to the clinic's employees and clients—Zillmann's beauty pros undergo regular professional development and reprogramming to stay abreast of the latest treatments, technologies, and products. As for her clients, Zillmann ensures that they know the nuances of each service, from the steps involved to expected results and aftercare. The spa divides its treatments into four categories—facials, body services, salon services, and hair removal—that each work to rejuvenate appearances. Skincare services incorporate products by Advanced Rejuvenating Concepts, which are also available for purchase. Zillmann had a hand in creating the line, developing complex, clinical-grade cleansers, lotions, and balms for specific skin types.
When Leslie Sandoval founded Treat Hair Studio in 2007, she drew upon her time living in New York and Los Angeles to create a fusion of East and West Coast salon styles. This fusion manifests itself in the salon's contemporary furniture and modern art, a diverse staff of talented stylists, and constant arguments over which American coast has the biggest pyramids. For haircare, stylists exclusively use Italian-imported Davines hair products. The studio also carries a full line of Enessa skincare products, which are made with natural ingredients and essential oils. Each service at the salon is a full experience; it often includes a complimentary scalp treatment, shampoo and conditioning treatment, hand massage, mini facial, and blow-dry style.
Along with specializing in color and highlighting, stylist Russell Howerton beautifies locks with haircuts, Brazilian blowouts, and sought-after Biolustré treatments. The result: sleek, healthy hairstyles that make clients as entranced with their reflections as a cat in a carnival mirror fun house.
At the aptly named Fabulous Faces from Marie, the aesthetician pampers above-the-shoulder areas with a full menu of facial options. She also removes dead skin cells using a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand, and tends to hard-to-reach areas with back facials. The beauty center also offers makeup applications that may include eyelash extensions or jewels.
Fingers and toes pop with vibrant colors after a trip to Lavish Styles Salon & Spa. Hair flows luxuriously down backs and skin glows luminously after decadent facials. Part salon, part spa, Lavish Styles' staff of aestheticians and stylists immerses its clients in pampering treatments from a menu of services. One of their standout specialties is hair extensions, which include Malaysian braid-less sew-ins, clear-tube shrinkies, and fertilized daisies. In addition to hair and nail sessions, they perform waxing services, facials, and makeup application.
