After her first beauty-school client beamed at her new haircut, Brittany Harvey was hooked on seeing customers' smiles. She has since spent hours in professional classrooms?listening to lectures from companies such as Goldwell and Paul Mitchell?and at her salon station, deftly pursuing the reward of a grin. Often, that expression accompanies a walk down the aisle, as Brittany specializes in formal bridal-party services administered both on- and off site, or even on the bride as she's walking down the aisle.
When she's not working on weddings, Brittany might render extensions that lengthen strands into natural-looking cascades or trims that shorten coifs into flattering layers. Goldwell and Rusk products, meanwhile, aid her in applying highlights, corrective color, and all-over color. She rounds out her treatment menu with simple shampoo-and-style packages, as well as waxing for brows, chins, and lips.
When organizing exercise regimens for his clients, personal trainer Matt Kasee draws inspiration from several periods of his life: the time he spent studying anatomy in graduate school, his process of becoming certified by the NSCA and ACSM, and of course, his trips to Disney World. Matt sees the theme park as an exemplary model of thorough planning and originality, which are concepts he strives to incorporate in his fitness programs. Just as each Disney attraction is hyperconscious of its target audience, his routines are customized to each person and their goals. He also tries to emulate the park's knack for mixing entertainment with education—his workouts prioritize fun and variety as motivational tools rather than intimidation or the threat of playing "It's a Small World" on a loop.
Matt leads both private and semiprivate training sessions with specific milestones in mind. Whether his clients want to lose weight, bulk up, or enhance their athletic performance, his methods adjust to suit their respective starting points and goals. He gives guests the competitive edge with movement analyses, nutrition tips, and gym guidance, and he even encourages patrons with online coaching.
Servicing clients for more than 41 years, Identity Hair Salon and Spa's menu of services helps them create new aesthetic personas via French pedicures, braided hair extensions, or Latisse lash-growth treatments. Inside, Dr. Marie Meyers enhances appearances by performing a variety of beautification services, such as laser hair removal and IPL photofacials. The multi-faceted salon and spa attracts a range of clients, including men eager to evict renegade hairs encroaching on their backs. Alternatively, microdermabrasion, Botox, and facial fillers can transform faces that are on the run from a sinister cabal of stamp collectors.
The House of Brows may specialize in precision eyebrow waxing and threading, but its beauty and spa services, which include lash extensions, facials, body wraps, and massages, set the company apart. Aestheticians customize hair-removal sessions by consulting with clients to determine which method suits their hair or skin type. After deciding between threading or waxing, clients recline as aestheticians groom, shape, or completely efface hair patches. When the service concludes, technicians give clients after-wax instructions to console the skin of its losses. Treatments take place on overstuffed recliners in a vibrant bittersweet-colored studio.
When NaTasha Barnes's massage skills outgrew her circle of friends and family, she knew it was time to turn her passion into a career. She received her associate's degree in applied science for massage therapy and then went on to study beauty at Aveda Fredrics Institute, where she learned the art of waxing, tinting, and braiding hair with one finger. Now as a licensed managing aesthetician and massage therapist, NaTasha offers a variety of indulgent services out of her own Tranquil Moments Day Spa. She performs relaxing one-hour massages and nixes fuzz from arms, upper lips, and glass eyeballs with a personal hair-removal session.
