Classy. Elegant. Posh. These are the qualities that Chic Salon & Spa strives for and largely achieves, thanks to a team of stylists who make beauty their top priority. Whether they're crafting face-flattering haircuts or adding dimension with partial or full highlights, they do everything in their power to bring their clients' dream looks to life.
The stylists at Salon O, a Paul Mitchell Focus salon, create looks that span from trendy, such as blunt bangs or asymmetrical cuts, to classic, such as bobs or long layers. They are also quite adept at coloring techniques, including natural-looking, multidimensional highlights and all-over hue changes. They can even change the texture of hair with an elegant curly perm, which takes less time than assembling a fusilli-pasta wig.
It would probably be more efficient to ask Joan Bell Carroll about what she doesn't do. As the founder of Browz Makeup Bar, she is, of course, a makeup artist and aesthetician, but her skill set includes more than just creating a pretty face. She is also a licensed aesthetics instructor, and teaches courses at Browz on basic and advanced makeup artistry, waxing, and even pole and belly dancing. Inside her studio—a chocolate-hued space accented with pops of orange and blue—she hosts a diverse range of events that includes everything from birthday and lingerie parties to photo shoots and dance classes.
But since opening Browz nearly 20 years ago, Joan's specialty has always been brow and makeup services. She and her team can shape brows however clients prefer, whether by waxing, threading, tweezing, or pixellating. They also remove unwanted hair elsewhere with a complete selection of body waxing treatments. They create flawless skin with airbrush makeup applications, and can lengthen lashes with semi-permanent extensions or temporary strip or individual lashes.
Guests sink into brown leather chairs as they soak their feet during pedicures at Serenity Nail Salon, where manicures and pedicures take center stage. Sugar scrubs, bamboo lotion, and marine masks enhance the already soothing mani-pedi experience, and the nail techs further enhance fingers and toes with gel polishes, acrylics, and french manicures. Aside from nailcare, the savvy staff members rid clients of unwanted face and body hair with waxes, and prep eyes for showing up Bambi with eyelash extensions.
Though its name denotes the presence of lash technicians on staff, Lash Lotus does more than enhance eyelines. Instead, it also offers a range of relaxing massages and cleansing facials to create a well-rounded menu of pampering activities. Aromatherapy and strokes customized to muscle tension augment massages, whereas lactic peels and exfoliating masks brighten and tighten skin. The staff also applies both makeup and lashes for special occasions, with three levels of eyelash intensity that allow clients to have dramatic eyes throughout swimming, showering, and sleeping.
