Licensed aesthetician Jenny Sampson clears skin of unwanted hair and blackheads and combats paleness with a collection of skin services. Using Rhonda Allison skincare products, she performs custom facials that help remove dead skin cells and sleepover graffiti from the skin’s surface. Her swift hand also swipes unwelcome strands of hair from the body, leaving behind smooth skin to be coated in a sun-kissed bronze from head to toe with airbrush tanning.
A cowboy boot full of blooming flowers interplays with wall-mounted horseshoes and wagon wheels to create a sepia-tinged Western ambiance at Lady Luxe Hair Saloon. Despite the vintage setting, the salon's stylists stay current on the most recent hairstyling trends so that they can craft trendy new looks and teach clients how to trim their own eyelashes at home. A nail technician can glaze fingertips with a coat of chip-resistant Shellac polish, and the spa's aesthetician uses everything from naturally derived skincare balms to microdermabrasion technology as she rejuvenates and revitalizes dermal layers.
Carved into the pale yellow walls, a lineup of mini archways crowns each crimson spa chair at 999 Nail and Skin Care, where clients lounge as nail technicians cleanse and beautify fingers and toes. Manicurists barber cuticles thoroughly before kneading away stress in tense palms and sixth fingers and slathering nails with a florid coat of OPI or CND polish. Performed with fully sanitized pedicure baths, the spa pedicure affords feet identical treatment, adding an additional exfoliating buff for heels sullied from their part-time job as a chimney sweep.
Next Level Skin Care takes eyelash extensions so seriously that the only application method the center uses is also one of the only patented methods in the United States. During applications, licensed medical aesthetician Candace King layers synthetic-natural hair hybrids onto the lids of both male and female clients. To get the treatment just right, she found guidance under Lôngmi Lashes creator Daniel Dinh, who trained King and certified her to apply his lashes at Next Level Skin Care.
King also customizes beauty treatments using a combination of advanced medical, therapeutic, and organic techniques. Her clinical facial includes an enzyme and resurfacing treatment that helps treat acne, aging skin, and hyperpigmentation, and her organic facial peel uses plant and fruit extracts to nourish skin. She also offers an eye rescue add-on treatment, during which freeze-dried collagen helps firm skin and reduce puffiness. To complement beautifying services, the boutique also sells mineral makeup, clothing, and feather hair extensions.
When it comes to beauty, Ultimate Lash and Brow sets out to succeed where others have failed. Certified eyelash extension technicians free clients of mascara's clumping, smudging, and running issues by granting them with a full fan of dark, dramatic, and semi-permanent extensions instead. To turn back the clock on disastrous eyebrow waxing appointments, aesthetician Christiane Gendrey calls on her experience beautifying celebrities to carefully tweeze brows back into shape, sometimes even devising a comprehensive monthly regimen to grow back missing hairs. And the studio's facial services don't pull any punches—rather than using the ineffective techniques of so-called pampering facials, the experts target stubborn skin problems and treat faces to deep exfoliation, helping bring back a healthy rate of cell turnover and create a softer, more even complexion.
Though they're skilled at airbrush tanning, brow shaping, and galvanic facials, the lash experts at Ultimate Lash and Brow specialize in applying semi-permanent eyelash extensions and brow design. They tailor looks to each client’s natural lash length and desired look, whether it be subtle enhancement or dramatic glamour. Aestheticians—who go through continuous training to keep up with innovations—work with clients of all skin types and eye beauty concerns, including small or deep-set eyes, dark shadows, mono-lids, and thin or full eyebrows.
The most modest of these packages, called Flirty Eyes, consists of 15 individual lashes, whereas clients opting for the Event lashes take on 100 new strands. The Masculine Eye treatment is specially designed for those who need masculine lash amplification, ideal for giving stern looks to scare away herds of saber-toothed tigers. The med spa's list of FAQs introduces extension novices to the methods, materials, and processes involved. An onsite product boutique equips clients with the best products for their new strands.
Dubbed the “pale skin fighters,” Sunless Revolution’s tanning technicians bronze their clients through UV-free methods performed in their industrial-style salon or on the road. With top automated misting booths such as Mystic HD and VersaSpa, customers can stop in for quick self-service tans that offer perks such as a pH-balancing spray. Alternatively, airbrush tans applied by hand give human canvases a custom glow.
