Kelli Langford has always been something of an artist; she just traded in the paintbrushes and pigments of her youth for the hairbrushes and hair dyes of a stylist. Working at New Image Salon, she mows her way through as much as eight inches of hair a day, but that's not where she feels her artistry comes into play. She finds her creative peak in styling and coloring clients' hair—a talent that has resulted in vibrant red tones and trendy ombre looks. But whatever the service, some things are always a given: salon-quality products and a strict policy against using cacti for hairbrushes. "I always test my products and get familiar with them before ever using them on a client," Kelli says.
Hi my name is Krista Dirks, I have been a hair stylist for over 12 years now, and have worked at Alexanders premier salon and spa for 10 years. I love what I do and am a perfectionist with my work and take it very seriously. I ensure all my clients are completely satisfied with the end result of my work.
The Strand Salon's certified epidermal artisans refurbish weatherworn frontispieces with a 15- to 30-minute microdermabrasion skin-sprucing treatment. To kick things off, an amicable aesthetician will expunge loitering filth during a preprocedure cleansing. Then, the skin specialist will gingerly slough off sullied epidermal layers and dead skin cells using a diamond-tipped wand that sluices the face with a stream of microcrystals. By reducing tegument thickness, the treatment gooses lazy collagen into production mode, shooing away fine lines and burrowing skin gophers. A sumptuous slathering of moisturizer completes the treatment, leaving faces hydrated and refreshed. The Strand recommends clients abstain from using makeup and undergoing ritualistic lard baths 24 hours prior to their appointment.
The seasoned team at Sani Spa & Nails approaches external beautification from multiple angles as they gussy up passersby with a menu of services geared toward aesthetic excellence and relaxation. Their talented manicurists revive digits weary from commuting to and from work via tunnel digging, filing down nails before slathering on coats of vibrant polishes. The spa's expertly applied eyelash extensions direct positive attention toward clients' peepers with their fetching length and volume.
