Rockstar Creation isn't your typical tattoo parlor. Tucked inside the second level of Jo-elle Hair, the studio has more in common with a spa, going so far as to supplement the inky designs of its 10-year veteran tattoo artist with facials, waxing services, and eyelash extensions. The shop even offers a full menu of nail-care services, including eco-friendly steam pedicures and retractable-claw installations. What really sets the shop apart however, is its strict sanitary standards, which include disposable piercing and tattoo needles, a UV-heat sterilization system, and single-use nail files that customers may keep after their service.
At Lash Affair, experienced lash technicians beautify winks and flirtatious gazes with eyelash extensions and other lash services. Silk and faux mink extensions come in a variety of thicknesses and lengths to match casual and dramatic looks. Soft mink threads fit enthusiastic butterfly kissers with the softest possible lash. Every skilled tech at the facility holds multiple eyelash extension certifications. Extensions take about two hours to apply, and generally stay adhered to natural lashes for up to five weeks, depending on how often clients blink messages in Morse code.
The clinical estheticians at Skin & Body Solutions spend a lot of time snapping photographs. Their cameras go a step beyond merely capturing images, however—they paint a picture of the skin’s underlying conditions, mapping out its scars and blemishes while boldly flouting its tattooed “No Trespassing” signs. As a result, the aesthetician can custom-craft a skincare plan that draws on pharmaceutical-grade products to augment the results of facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and peels.
Skin & Body Solutions' expertise extends beyond exfoliating facials and into the most advanced regions of skincare. The med spa houses ultramodern lasers that neutralize hyperpigmentation and oust the unwanted hairs that periodically sprout on legs or middle-aged fleece blankets. Shelves in the spa’s lobby overflow with medical-grade cosmetics that can help maintain results at home.
Lush Lash Bar & Spa owner and certified master lash artist Carmen Mills oversees portable appearance upgrades. True to the "mobile" in their spa's name, Carmen and her team travel to the homes of clients to outfit peepers in new lashes. They utilize weightless, natural-looking DreamLash extensions, a Canadian-developed brand that meets the country's stringent guidelines on hypoallergenic treatment products. Back at their spa, the Lush Mobile team also rejuvenates guises with Dreamlash Dip semi-permanent mascara, spray tanning, and waxing.
Utilizing med-spa expertise in a tranquil setting, the aesthetic experts at Tonic Body Spa refurbish clients with treatments ranging from manicures and teeth whitening to massage and VelaShape cellulite-reduction treatments. IPL skin rejuvenation revitalizes facades with flashing intense pulsed light that targets red and brown pigmentation triggered by sun damage, aging, or hormones. Aestheticians can also cleanse visages during the signature facial, using glycolic-acid-based products before further mollycoddling mugs with European additions such as hot towels, aromatic oils, and a game of peekaboo.
To help to enhance results beyond treatments, staff can recommend aftercare products from lines such as Institut' DerMed and Comfort Zone. Guests can peruse these cleansers and moisturizers as the spa's decor plunges them into relaxation through a scheme of green walls, dark-wood furnishings, and plentiful plant life illuminated by subdued lighting and recitation of the Lake Poets’ works.
In a world where technological interaction is becoming the norm, Bare Beauty Bar has started a social beauty revolution to bring back physical face time while not losing sight of how many people conduct their day-to-day business. That explains why its sleek, highly sanitized facility offers not only multiple beauty bars where guests and technicians can converse, but also an online presence that aims to answer clients' inquiries whenever the questions may occur to them.
Experts at the Hair Bar dole out the latest trends, from adding vibrant highlights to thick sections of hair to etching cheetah-prints or pointillism portraits of David Hasselhoff with shaved designs. Body Bar technicians contour the figure while erasing signs of cellulite with specialized scrubs and lotions. Specialists at the Glam Bar pamper hands and feet with antibacterial foot soaks and gel mani-pedis and add finishing touches to faces with eyelash extensions and makeup applications.
