Whether they're eradicating acne with a specially formulated combination of sulfur, enzymes, and probiotics or diminishing fine lines and dryness with pumpkin peels, Marina Beauty Bar's aestheticians customize each facial to their clients' specific needs. And to ensure optimal skin rejuvenation, the team uses products from top skincare lines such as Dermalogica, Intraceuticals, and Epicuren, which uses an all-natural enzyme base for its products.
The staff also offers cosmetic services to accent the effects of their skincare treatments. Clients can undergo permanent-makeup treatments that camouflage scars and enhance eyes, lips, and eyebrows, as well as tinting services that spruce up brows and lashes with new hues. Additionally, their waxing treatments remove unwanted hair from eyebrow arches, as well as chests, underarms, and werewolf feet, in under 30 minutes.
Using natural skin-safe products, the aestheticians at Alchemie Spa refresh faces with soothing masks and give nails a striking sheen. A therapeutic hot-stone rubdown causes pent-up stress to evaporate and drift up to join the ozone layer, and the in-house apothecary supplies organic herbs and locally sourced plant essences. Alchemie offers a number of services, including massage, facials, and waxing and sugaring. Alchemie complements its eco-friendly product lineup with a sunny space that blends modern and organic accents such as blond woods, lacquered white countertops, and streamlined geometric furnishings.
Monique Powers approaches each makeup-application session with an open mind and?more importantly?open ears. She listens carefully to each client's unique preferences; and for those who don't know what they want, she presents pictures and color palates before determining the first look to try. She has extensive experience working with women of all ages, nationalities, and skin types, readying them for events ranging from weddings to nights out on the town.
To further enhance facial features, Monique, who calls herself an ?eyebrow architect,? sculpts and shapes eyebrows for men and women. She adds healthy color to bodies during airbrush-tanning sessions, and she improves skin's health through a spectrum of specialized facials and peels.
The staff at Bronzed Airbrush Tanning wants its clients to gain sun-kissed color in the safest way possible. To them this means not lying in the sun or consuming bag after bag of clementines, but instead airbrushing the skin with a mist of color. They employ a tanning solution free of skin-irritating alcohol, parabens, and fragrances, and since the DHA?the active ingredient that colors the skin?is derived from beets and sugar cane, the spray is also certified organic. Both tanning options, regular and express, are customizable to the client's natural skin tone and the color lasts for at least one week.
Founded by entrepreneur Monica Blanco, Colour Couture revivifies clients with airbrush tans powered by proprietary tanning solutions. These customized products contain 11% DHA and a base of organic aloe-vera gel—as opposed to harmful chemicals—and are never tested on animals. The technicians who apply them all undergo a thorough training program and the Colour Couture certification they receive prepares them to apply even coats out in the field, whether they are bronzing an entire bridal party or just one friendly ghost looking to fit in with the land of the living.
Monica Blanco and her airbrush-tan technicians at Colour Couture create new looks with an in-house formula—a paraben-free, odorless tanning solution made with organic aloe vera gel. Their formula and expertise have earned them mentions in magazines such as Shape, In Touch, and Parents. Blanco has also created a certification program that trains aspiring entrepreneurs to use her products and techniques in businesses of their own.
