Green Beauty Creation's eclectic list of services reads like a grab bag of all things aesthetic. Wreaths of sample acrylic nails fan out behind the manicure station, beckoning to unadorned nails with neon french tips, tiny painted flowers, checkerboards, and other patterns. A salt-crystal lamp purifies the air, whisking away whiffs of polish and the ghosts of slugs, and guests dip their toes into swirling warm water surrounding raised cushioned pedicure chairs. Across the room, mirrors topped with festive flowers reflect stylists as they cut, color, and style 'dos for women and men. Green Beauty Creation also nourishes complexions with facials, relieves tense muscles with massages, and beautifies skin with specialty scrubs and bronzing treatments.
The aestheticians at Olga's Touch use Christina Cosmeceutical products that improve skin's overall health while simultaneously smoothing and firming it. Their moisture-rich formulas hydrate skin to reveal soft, glowing surfaces upon initial use. Some of their product lines focus on eliminating acne and diminishing the appearance of hyperpigmentation while others promote the regeneration of cells. In addition to its facial treatments, Olga's Touch treats clients to a wide range of massages. Its therapists soothe tense muscles during Swedish and deep-tissue massages enhanced with oils and heated stones.
If there were a sequel to James and the Giant Peach called James and the Giant Grape, it might be filmed at DD Beauty Salon. Visiting the salon is almost like being inside a grape, but one that's impeccably decorated. White crown molding tops vivid periwinkle walls, and a vintage round frame wraps around a mirror, contrasting with the straight rectangular frames around the styling-station mirrors. The salon’s three attentive beauty pros see to their clients' every need, from banishing acne during facials to buckling them into their car seat after a manicure. They also create elegant hairstyles and wax away unwanted lip fuzz and overgrown eyebrows.
Liz has been a licensed aesthetician for six years and a licensed massage therapist for two. In that time she's covered the spectrum of skincare, working as an acne specialist as well as gaining certificates in both face and body treatments. Her experiences come to a head at Beauty and Bliss, where she tends to skin and spirits with a full slate of spa services. Her facials include medleys of serums, steam, and moisturizers to combat signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dinosaur scratches, and she puts her massage expertise to use with full-body Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal services.
The specialists at Nozawa Intl beautify faces and bodies with an extensive menu of traditional and high-tech treatments. Classic facials address concerns spanning from acne and rosacea to wrinkles and grins that won?t wipe off, whereas radio frequency and cavitation may be used to zap lax skin or troublesome deposits of fat. Eyelash perms and eyelash extensions make peepers pop without weighing lids down with loads of mascara, and permanent makeup enhances features with indelible pigments.
Melodie Girard, a master cosmetic-tattoo artist, uses hypoallergenic, pharmaceutical-grade pigments to permanently tattoo makeup onto faces. Her clients range from people who want to roll out of bed in the morning makeup-ready to those suffering from the effects of alopecia and chemotherapy. She also can help diminish the signs of aging and acne with facials and chemical peels, and unwanted facial and body hair is removed with warm wax, strips of flypaper, or electrolysis sessions.
