Taryn McCracken and Hanna Gregor have been studying the science of healthy eating since college. Taryn, a committed vegan, earned her bachelor?s degree in health psychology, and while Hanna worked toward a degree in nutritional sciences at Penn State University, she coached the school?s Division I athletes on how to use healthy foods to increase performance. Together they helm Detox Lounge, a salon-inspired health center with a very simple mission: out with the bad, in with the good. That means eliminating toxins and taking in antioxidants.
A large part of their work involves True Juice Cleanses, a proprietary line of complex juices blended from fruit and superfoods that are designed to boost metabolism, eliminate fats, and detoxify the body.

At Eye Candy, extensions make eyelashes so voluminous, they may need to be brushed. These extensions can be applied in different configurations, depending on whether the client wants to open the eyes up or to trade their mascara tubes for full-on fringe.
