Although the aestheticians at Neo Electrolysis and Beauty Center elongate eyelashes and apply permanent cosmetics, the sole focus of their business is hair removal. Electrolysis technicians rid skin of unwanted fuzz one follicle at a time, waxing techs swipe away bristles by the swath, and threading experts tighten up eyebrows and clear away facial hair with chemical-free cotton thread. The team has refined each of these techniques over the course of its 23-year history to such a degree that each treatment is customized to the individual client.

The team offers a variety of haircare services to bring out client’s natural beauty, from quick and simple cuts to highlights, color treatments, chemical relaxers, and perms. Additionally, the staff offers specialty services such as an intensive deep conditioning treatment for particularly dry or damaged locks. Sewn-in, track braidless, and full-bond extensions, meanwhile, add floor-sweeping length to short ‘dos and strands that refuse to grow for fear of attracting a prince known for climbing long locks.
