Sue, the owner of Sunrise Wellness Center, brings 18 years of experience as an aesthetician to the treatment table. Along with a team of stylists and aestheticians, Sue delivers image-transforming services for every inch of skin and hair. In the salon, stylists whip up custom cuts and colors and employ the follicle-smoothing powers of Global Keratin?s formaldehyde-free hair-straightening treatment. Aestheticians use skin-friendly sugar and traditional waxes and nail techs pamper hands during chair-side manicures. Relaxing clients indulge in the beauty haven's charming garden area, a tranquil retreat where guests can enjoy refreshments while catching up on the latest celebrity gossip with the area's resident gnomes and traveling pack of pink flamingos.
Within the brightly lit space of Kim Sun Young Beauty Salon, wall-mounted mirrors reflect the artful shearing techniques of both junior and senior stylists. The sculptors craft new hairdos and revamp styled locks with coloring and straightening services, including the salon’s signature "panel straight" style. They also perform services that range from comprehensive wedding packages to advanced beauty care in the form of human-hair extensions, skin treatments, and semi-permanent makeup applications that make mascara feel as obsolete as a handwritten invite to a cave-drawing contest.
Owner Jenny anchors her beauty services in more than two decades of experience. She specializes in permanent makeup, dabbing eternal color onto lips or around eyes to shave minutes off of morning or post-waterslide beauty routines. Jenny also unearths fresh faces with skincare treatments that range from traditional European facials to microdermabrasion, a mechanical method of quickly buffing away lines, age spots, acne, and other blemishes. Jenny gussies up exteriors for weddings or special events by swiftly affixing eyelash extensions or vanquishes moles and dark marks with the wave of a laser beam
For the experienced athlete, it's no problem to just walk into a gym and put together a day's workout. For someone still learning the ropes, a little support can go a long way. This is what you get at Foundation Fitness. Trainers start with an meet-n-greet to help you articulate your fitness goals and design workouts to accomplish them. From there, clients can choose to continue 1-on-1 training, transition to small-group training, or attend boot camp classes that include complimentary nutritional plans. FF's staff isn't intent on just cutting you loose after a workout, either: you can elect to stick around for a massage-therapy session that helps stretch and relax newly worked out muscles.
