Since graduating at the top of her class, Dr. Sima Shakiba has had an illustrious medical career studded with fellowships and published articles. After researching the technology behind Botox injections and directing a laser hair-removal center, she decided to open her own practice that combines all her professional passions under one beach-adjacent roof. Today, Dr. Shakiba runs the newly renovated Beauty On The Beach to combat visible signs of aging and general aesthetic imperfections. To that end, she and her team perform laser hair removal with the high-quality Luminus Light Sheer duet laser, Botox injections, and fillers.
TNN Beauty's team of aestheticians beautifies clients from the neck up with a range of services. With permanent makeup and eyelash extensions, they help accentuate features while shaving time off of morning routines. Their teeth-whitening treatments rely on the NuYu system to lighten smiles up to eight shades. Stylists also glamorize hair with cuts and color, and add up to 22 inches of length with extensions. Additionally, the team typically keeps a feature photographer onsite to create before-and-after montages for the shop's portfolio or snaps action shots of emergency updos for shotgun weddings.

Inside this intimate, pink-and-animal-print studio, owner and licensed aesthetician Chris Bresky adds length and volume to natural lashes with extensions that liberate lids from clumpy mascara.

The makeup artist also studied at Last Looks Makeup Academy in New York City, and provides complimentary makeovers for customers who purchase the boutique's sunless tanners, cosmetics, or Swarovski crystal-embellished tweezers, which bestow eyelids with the ability to speak in code with nearby fireflies.
