Under the guidance of a master aesthetician, the staff of Lash Beautique unearths both stubborn impurities and everyday tension through its slate of skin treatments. The menu features classic facials and pumpkin peels to forge radiant faces, and licensed estheticians can also accent freshly cleansed complexions with facial waxing and custom lash extensions. Located between 30th Street and Ray Street in North Park, Lash Beautique provides clients of both sexes with the education they'll need to maintain their visages at home.
Above all else, Le Wax Boutique strives to turn every client's visit into an elegant and indulgent retreat. Damask-patterned walls, a gleaming crystal chandelier, and antique-inspired furniture fills the space, which more closely resembles a French sitting room than a day spa.
Within this stately environment, the skincare professionals do everything in their power to pamper visitors. Waxing treatments gently uproot unwanted hairs from limbs, torsos, or faces, leaving the areas as smooth as a freshly shaved ball bearing. Additionally, the spa's aestheticians perform a variety of facials and enzyme peels intended to improve skin tone by fading wrinkles, clearing up acne outbreaks, or simply restoring a youthful glow.
At Love Sugaring SD, skilled aesthetician Mailette extols the benefits of waxing with sugar paste instead of conventional wax. For one thing, sugaring is said to be more comfortable than waxing because it doesn't adhere to the skin. Additionally, sugaring is designed to keep ingrown hairs to a minimum, allowing skin to stay smooth for a longer period of time. But Mailette practices more than just sugaring; she also customizes facials, peels, and makeup using top-shelf products such as Rhonda Allison and MAC.
Sugar & Spice gilds corporeal forms with a suite of beautifying procedures. Manicures and pedicures call upon skilled nail sculptors to trim cuticles and shape jagged claws into beautifully rounded finger ornaments before coating nails in chromatic armor. Piggies get extra pampering with a soothing footbath, a sugar scrub, massage, and pumice sloughing to remove rough calluses and stubbornly clingy octopuses.
Tucked inside the homey, historic Burlingame Garage, Gingerly Wax feels more like a girlfriend's warm, inviting living room than a cold spa studio. That's most likely the effect owner Ginger Lee Rees was going for in order to help her clients feel at ease from the moment they walk through the door. A licensed cosmetologist, she and her team have chosen to direct all their energy to hair removal, providing full-body waxing services for both men and women. And, to make each session go as smoothly as possible, Ginger and her staff also provide some helpful tips for waxing clients, which include avoiding caffeine, exfoliating regularly, and never using the word "wax" anytime the hairs might be listening
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. Extensions are never applied directly to skin or in more than a one-to-one extension-to-natural lash ratio. In-house stylists further beautify clients with facials and peels.
