Each creative cut is supplemented by a deep conditioning treatment and stylish blow-drying. All headscaping is calculated after careful consideration of a client's hair type and bone structure to craft a snug cut. Hair services also include a color consultation that explores potential hue directions for a dramatic change that complements unearthed spring wardrobes (actual coloring service is not included in this deal).
Skincare is J&S Beauty Inc.'s specialty. Owner and trilingual beauty guru Susie Yu helms a staff of eight, including licensed aestheticians and massage therapists who relax and rejuvenate by blending an all-natural philosophy with the latest in safe cosmetic technologies. Classic facials keep pores clean and healthy, whereas other treatments—such as microdermabrasion, derma-therapeutic sessions, or LHE laser whitening—focus specifically on reducing wrinkles, acne, or pigmentation. Body treatments, on the other hand, such as Thermo Cool help slim waistlines by toning muscle, burning fat, and smoothing cellulite.
Soft, neutral colors permeate a decor that marries tranquil tones with clinical sensibilities. Private treatment rooms remain clean and orderly while enticing patrons with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and some even boast showers to rinse away sweat built up in the steam room and the remnants of pre-appointment food fights.
Working out of Lets Go Hair Salon, O' Mai Lash owner and Lôngmi Lash-certified artist Vicky Tran-Le deftly outfits eyes with extensions that vary by shade and volume. Her lash options range from the everyday set, which adds some extra oomph to natural lashes that are already long and luscious, to the extreme set, which lends a thick, sultry look akin to wearing three coats of mascara or two well-trained tarantulas. Vicky also performs touchups and free lash removal for lashes applied at her facility and provides helpful aftercare instructions to help lashes stay put as long as possible.
At Beauty in Motion Studio, professionally trained cosmetic trainers and sisters Crystal and Angela provide makeup training to women and also makeup artists in the field looking to advance their special techniques on custom blending and color theory. With years of combined experience and time as guest speakers, the duo showcases their versatility with an expertise in everyday makeup, fashion runway, and bridal looks. The beauty experts share skincare and makeup tips during small group workshops, in which participants can sip champagne and learn about an array of topics. In addition to workshops, they also offer private one-on-one training. For weddings, the studio’s aestheticians embellish skin with facials and expertly applied makeup, and hairstylists weave tresses into veil-ready updos. The service menu also extends to bridesmaids and flower girls, whose growth depends on their hair being regularly watered and pruned. Beauty in Motion Studio’s mobile bridal packages send staffers on-location to administer makeup touchups, facials, and hair changes at the reception itself.
Licensed aesthetician Juana Martinez buffs careworn visages with 60-minute private microdermabrasion treatments at Stewart Medical Group. During each treatment, Martinez gently sands epidermises with a minimally abrasive instrument that removes the thick, uneven layer of outer skin, minimizing light scars and uneven pigment caused by sun damage and semi-permanent clown makeup. The treatment also helps collagen levels to find renewed vigor, leading to smooth, even, and younger-looking complexions. Anesthetic is not used during this noninvasive procedure, as most patients report little discomfort and require no downtime.
