Kayleigh Bynum always starts her appointments with a conversation. She gets to know her guests before she puts scissors to hair in order to get a better feel for each person's personality and lifestyle. With that information, along with their style wishes and face structure, Kayleigh is better able to customize haircuts that accentuate her guests' best physical features and personalities. To create finished looks, she uses Pravana color products, and Coppola Keratin Complex to create smooth, silky waves of hair.
At Riverside Health & Wellness, Hydei Herrera maps out paths to good health through skincare, yoga, and body work services. A licensed therapist for the last decade as well as a mother of three, Herrera is all too familiar with life's balancing act, and uses that experience to help her patients achieve both physical and mental wellness. She's especially skilled in aesthetic skincare, a craft that manifests itself in an assortment of skin-related treatments that includes facials, waxes, chemical peels, and full-body scrubs. Moreover, Riverside Health & Wellness's staffers go beyond traditional spa services by using laser technology, which they use to remove tattoos, oust unwanted hair, and zap aliens from Venus.
Dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm require injection by a steady, confident hand. Not only has Beautiful U Aesthetics’ nurse, Anne Hubbard, mastered the ministration of these cosmetic boosters, she's demonstrated the procedure on a live KARK 4 segment to illustrate the simplicity of the process and prove that she could do it while riding a unicycle and reciting the Cyrillic alphabet. Anne’s specialties range from skin-smoothing injectables to facial services such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. She can also apply permanent eyeliner above and below the peepers, enhancing clients’ natural features without the wastefulness of applying makeup every morning or using up a birthday wish on something besides preventing asteroid strikes.
"Blow out before you go out," suggests the haircare menu at Studio 2121. It's sound advice, coming from stylists who, according to a recent feature on ABC 7, have all been specially trained in the art of blow-drying hair. They use hot air as a painter would wield a brush, creating customized looks from voluminous curls to sleek, straight strands. Stylists also administer cuts and color treatments, as well as "Glam Hair" makeovers—sessions that result in eye-catching updos like chignons and French twists, traditionally styled by winding the hair around a baguette.
Studio 2121's list of services is so varied that the staff makes it a priority to consult with clients and narrow down their desired look. They aren't limited to hair artistry, either. An esthetician pampers complexions with facials and Intraceuticals oxygen infusion treatments, which smooth out wrinkles and fade blemishes. There's a lash specialist who outfits eyes with extensions, and a massage therapist who eases muscular aches with Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology treatments.
The sense of harmony that pervades the atmosphere of Statement Salon, Spa and Fitness extends to the spa’s lengthy menu of treatments, all of which work in unison to imbue the body with beauty and health. Whether cropping hair, polishing nails, or soaking skin in UV-free spray-tan solutions, the team works to accentuate clients' best physical features while complimentary fruit waters and herbal teas soothe frazzled nerves. Miriam Lopez is a multitalented aesthetician who came to Statement after studying at a professional Paul Mitchell cosmetology school, hoping to extend her expertise towards a variety of services, including hairstyling, facials, and waxing.
Though a visitor to the tranquil spa’s treatment rooms might not realize it, the sounds of pulsating music and stretch-induced groans echo throughout the studio just next door, where trainers lead personal workouts and fitness classes. Students of all ability levels can dance to the energetic beats of Zumba classes, stretch their limbs in yoga sessions, and haul bags filled with hot stones to the spa’s massage-therapy rooms during muscle-building boot camps.
