Few women enjoy climbing out of a cozy bed to blearily begin their daily beauty regimen. Licensed medical aesthetician Andrea Sandoval helps clients reclaim their REM hours with her menu of permanent-makeup services. Using a blend of cosmetic pigments crafted from natural ingredients, Andrea carefully applies deft shades to the dermal layer of the skin to create makeup that won?t rub away when swimming, sleeping, or checking to see if the water hose is clogged. She can enhance brows to add definition to the face?s overall appearance, add a lush darkness to lash lines, or emphasize lips? plumpness. Andrea can also blend the natural pigments to match skin tone, seamlessly masking complexion imperfections once and for all.
The artists at Salon Red, Heather Harrison and Anthony Sommers, mold manes behind a storefront covered in eclectic stones and tiles. After guests pass under an awning supported by three columns, a spacious waiting room beckons them with overstuffed couches. In the salon proper, Anthony and Heather work amid hot-pink walls, offering services such as highlights, hair extensions, and conditioning treatments, as well as products by Pravana and Bosley. They also help brides look their best by fixing their hair, applying their makeup, and then painting them blue.
Before Heather entered the beauty industry by way of the Avalon School of Cosmetology, she served in the Army National Guard and taught for Head Start. When she isn't cropping mops and embellishing faces with makeup, she uses her skills to style models at photo shoots. Anthony Sommers attended Earl's Academy of Beauty and uses his talents with both classic and edgy techniques to draw out his clients' personalities. After hours, Anthony arranges coiffures and designs wigs for Ballet Arizona dance productions. He also works with a team during the shows to prepare performers for the stage.
