The Beauty Spot's mission is two-fold: to create personalized looks and maintain an inviting atmosphere that puts clients at ease. The staff masters a wide array of beauty services that extend beyond the hair, from intricate nail art to diamond-tip microdermabrasions to professional makeup applications.
The student aestheticians and stylists at Vogue College treat tresses and pamper visages under the supervision of experienced instructors. More than 50,000 students have graduated from Vogue College, each learning to perform the treatments that form Vogue College's sizeable slate of salon services. Beauty-seekers can mix and match services with a shampoo, blow-dry, and curling-iron treatment ($10+) plus a bikini wax ($20+) and a spa manicure ($10), or focus solely on sloughing off dead skin cells by indulging in a microdermabrasion treatment ($35). A pedicure ($12), basic manicure ($7), plain facial ($10), and an eyebrow wax ($7) touch up all extremities, leaving the shorelines of the body in pristine condition.
As a co-owner of Studio J The Salon and an educator for Kuene Haircosmetics, Jade Nicole Sanchez has an in-depth knowledge of haircare and expertise that she has used to style the hairdos of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, The B-52s, and the San Antonio Spurs Silver Dancers. Jade and her team of talented stylists and aestheticians master a complete menu of hair and aesthetic treatments, ranging from nailcare to massage therapy. Every third Thursday of the month, the salon hosts Martinis, Manicures, and Men's Cuts in alliance with Vbar. During these events, the color bar is converted into a martini bar and stylists perform nail services, manly grooming, and chair massages in a social environment that encourages attendees to network and sign each other's yearbooks.
Raw Hair Studio emphasizes superior customer service with its aesthetic army of seasoned stylists. With the eco-friendly pedicure, the technician massages the feet, cloaks them in a moisturizing mask, and sloughs the heels of any dead skin. The pedicure shapes up nails with a sanitary, waterless procedure. A polish change tops off the treatment, leaving toenails glistening enough to reflect sunlight back into space to communicate with alien pen pals in Morse code. Ladies opting for a haircut can revamp their noodle nests with a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry treatment followed by a styling session with one of Raw Hair Studio's professional mane mavens. This thorough head edit is good for any length of hair, whether clients are rocking short demi-bobs or keeping their locks long enough for a prince to scale the walls of their one-story bungalows.
Professional technicians at The Skin & Permanent Makeup Institute inspire transformation with an extensive menu of head-to-toe services. Waxing keeps unwanted fur from faces, and the application of mink eyelash extensions lend a light, airy look that appears more natural than man- or robot-made lashes. Above-the-neck pampering options also include facials, chemical peels, acne treatments, and permanent makeup?from eyebrows and eyeliner to lips and blush. Additionally, the beauty magicians can use specialized equipment to fade spider veins and tattoos.
