Aiming to offer longer-lasting results than drugstore mascara, Club Lash Spa’s semi-permanent mascara outfits customers with enchanting eyes for up to six weeks while adding length, volume, and color. Like the faux-mink eyelashes it accompanies, the semi-permanent mascara stays on during showers, sleep, workouts, and driving parade floats through car washes. The staff at Club Lash Spa can apply false eyelash sets that mimic natural lashes or focus on creating a dramatic look. False-eyelash sets need replacement every 45 to 60 days, as they fall out alongside regular eyelashes.
While some people believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, others believe it resides somewhere closer to the edge. Both groups would feel right at home at The Eyelash Connection, where licensed aestheticians divide their time between helping clients enhance their outward appearances and curating a calm, stress-free environment designed to promote wellness from within. Their signature eyelash extensions help trim minutes off of home makeup routines with waterproof strands that are affixed one by one instead of in false-looking strips. Annual continuing-education courses also help the staffers resharpen skills, which they channel into full-body waxing services and personalized skincare facials designed to treat everything from acne-prone complexions to backs covered in scratch 'n' sniff stickers.
Got Pearly Whites’ teeth techs exclusively specialize in laser whitening treatments, delivering noticable results in as little as 20 minutes. The process works as follows: after coating teeth with whitening gel, technicians then activate it with a cyan blue light equipped with 12,000 optical fibers and 30 layers of coated optical glass. The brilliance of that illumination then activates the gel to dissolve stains caused by coffee, tobacco, and purple crayons. To provide a whitening experience with little to no discomfort, the team uses an advanced filtration system that wrings out every last bit of UV light and heat. The result: teeth end up looking up to 8 shades whiter.

Futzpah 118 founder Dr. Jodi Politz ensures her spa is maintained to medical-grade hygiene standards in order to cleanse the minds of health-conscious customers and welcome specialty clients such as diabetics, pregnant women, and chemotherapy patients. Ladies and gents weary from strenuous pavement pounding begin their 45-minute sojourns with a salt footbath, soaking away aches in a glimmering foot tub. Deft technicians trim cuticles and shape ragged edges with single-use instruments, and soften callused soles with an invigorating sea-salt scrub and performances of Christian Louboutin's most famous lullabies. Tingling and fresh from a hydrating menthol mask and the warm embrace of paraffin wax, softened tootsies succumb to a massage, which kneads away stiffness through the leg to restore circulation and mobility. Toenail polish is optional for both men and women, allowing customers to customize the colors of their toes to match any hat, pair of shoes, or invisible power suit. Alternatively, opt for a footsie pedicure, which encapsulates tired toes and feet in relaxation.
Glenn McCleister was like many of his clients before he became a licensed massage therapist—in pain and seeking relief just about everywhere. After incurring a back injury, he embarked on a futile journey that took him numerous medical specialists’ offices but didn't produce results. Eventually, he ended up on a massage table and found that the therapeutic massages he was receiving were helping his back in a way the specialists weren't able to provide. After that experience, he changed courses in his life and decided to pay his knowledge forward with his own practice.
That's how he came to start Even Flow Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. Today he provides deep-tissue, medical, and myofascial release massages with the greater goal of facilitating healing, when appropriate. Glenn also offers calming Swedish massages to help clients find inner peace and relief from strangers on the street who go around singing the words "inner peace" off-key.
