Led by Camille Parmenter, the talented aestheticians at Naturally Yours fuse traditional services such as cuts and highlights with modern technologies, including glitter-strand hair extensions, and acrylic nails. All color treatments utilize Redken products, selected by Naturally Yours’s colorists for their consistent results and formulaic ability to blend into natural hair color, explaining their popularity amongst spies who must infiltrate a high-profile conference disguised as a dignitary’s toupee. Red wood pedestals at each station echo the exposed red rafters, which crown the earthy, modern space with a burst of industrial flare. Colorful rows of products stand in neat regiments upon crimson-stained wooden shelves, chromatically delightful and just out of reach, just like a parrot trapped in a computer monitor.
SkinScience Institute is a site of instruction, but that doesn't mean its services aren't professional quality. The aesthetics students who perform them make use of popular Murad and Image skincare products, and they're overseen by highly trained skin experts. Many of the treatments are clinical in nature, including anti-aging peels and microdermabrasion sessions. Other services emphasize natural skincare methods, such as the clay and seaweed wraps that purge clients' pores of toxins and clients' heads of "The Song That Never Ends."
Glitties Nail Art puts fingers and toes in the limelight with its glitter-based nail polishes, powders, and do-it-yourself mani-pedi kits. The company's biggest claim to fame, however, is its specially formulated bonding and sealing formula, which adheres the sparkly shade to the natural nail and gives it the look, feel, and wear of a gel. When applied correctly, Glitties polishes can last 10 days on the fingers and four to six weeks on the toes, allowing customers to get professional results without stepping foot into a salon, where an amateur stylist might accidentally shave their head. Nail-art kits come loaded with everything necessary for a perfect pedicure, including enough bonding and sealing formula to yield 15 applications, and products can easily be removed using standard polish remover or acetone.
Veteran hair artisan Kiauna Pond of Tyson Anthony Salon channels her 13 years of mane taming into each face-complementing hairdo. After a soothing scalp massage at the shampoo bowl, the detail-focused stylist snips and clips locks into the desired shape. A single-shade color, customized to the client's skin tone, eye color, forehead-to-wrist ratio, and lifestyle, adds dimension and texture to manescapes. After just over two hours, heads bob out the door of the classic, low-key salon space wearing an appealing style and an abundance of tiny waves in the shape of smiles. Kiauna specializes in both soft, natural styles and edgier looks and bestows clients with the tools necessary to re-craft the 'do at home.
